I DVR a lot of cooking shows this time of year, and just watched the show you're referring too, lyndalou.
It was misleading - they shouldn't have called it "fried" turkey. She basted it in butter, put it into the cage, and lowered it into a turkey fryer with no oil. So it was actually roasted, not fried. They kept referring to it as fried, which was annoying.
I wouldn't care for the ranch dressing injection she used, either.
I like my turkey to taste like turkey, maybe enhanced with some herbs, but not ranch dressing. But I'll still watch Trisha's show.
