Note There should be at least 3 to 5 inches from the fill line to the top of the pot so oil doesn’t boil over. While the oil is heating, prepare your turkey with any seasonings, marinades, or injected flavor that you desire.

Slowly lowering the basket helps prevent the oil from bubbling over. The turkey is done when the dark meat is at an internal temperature of 175° F to 180° F and all white meat is at an internal temperature of 165° F to 170° F. When the turkey is done, slowly lift it from the pot and place it in a pan or on paper towels to drain.

The juicy, injected meat and crispy skin are hard to beat for flavor and texture. Gallons of hot oil, combined with an open flame, can be a recipe for disaster if not treated with respect.

Monk places frozen turkeys in a refrigerator three nights before cooking to thaw. “If you drop a frozen turkey in 350-degree oil, you're going to have a problem,” Monk said.

However, this time he puts a cookie cooling rack in the pan so the turkey is not sitting in drained marinade. For those who aren't familiar with injecting poultry, Monk said just follow the instructions on the bottle.

Before you inject the bird, place it in the frying pot and fill with water until it is just covered. Remove the turkey and mark the water level inside the pot.

If you're cooking multiple birds, use the largest to determine how much oil is required. This prevents a potential fire if the oil bubbles over while putting the turkey in.

Anytime there's potential for oil flowing over the top, cut the flame off.” Slowly lower the turkey into the oil using a turkey frying rack and hook.

Once it's in and the bubbling has slowed, place the top on with a slight opening on one side for steam to escape. Once the time is up, turn the burner off, remove the bird and cut into the inside of the thigh joint.

Once the turkey cools to the point it can be handled, carve and enjoy. Here's a quick list of rules and suggestions anyone frying a turkey needs to know.

If you’re trying to figure out how long to deep-fry a turkey, you’ve come to the right place. For a quick answer, you should deep-fry a turkey for 3-4 minutes per pound.

If you’re looking for more details, stay tuned, and make sure to check out the turkey cooking time chart we’ll provide down below. When it comes to how long to deep-fry a turkey, you’re mostly looking at two distinct factors.

Lower temperatures such as 300 °F or less could prove difficult to fully cook a turkey properly. We’ve made this chart to help people quickly determine how long to deep-fry a turkey.

Wit this chart we recommend giving some leeway time as not every turkey deep fries exactly the same way. Each turkey may need to give or take 5 minutes for it to deep-fry properly.

For example, if we look at this chart, it says a 20 pound turkey should take about 70 minutes to deep-fry. To properly deep-fry the turkey from inside out, the temperature should be at least 350 °F.

You’ll have to keep a closer eye on the turkey as it should fry a little faster at 400° than our recommend temperature of 350 °F. A turkey at 350° should deep-fry for 3 to 3.5 minutes per pound, so try and keep that in mind as you bump up the temperature.

The deep-fry time will remain the same which is 3 to 3.5 minutes per pound at 350 °F. A 14 pound turkey should deep-fry for roughly 42 minutes at 350 °F.

A 16 pound turkey should deep-fry for roughly 56 minutes at 350 °F. An 18 pound turkey should deep-fry for roughly 63 minutes at 350 °F.

A 20 pound turkey should deep-fry for roughly 70 minutes at 350 °F. Turkeys are a great food to serve to small or large groups, especially around the holidays (looking at your thanksgiving).

Deep frying specifically brings out a lot of juicy flavors with a nice textured exterior. Thanksgiving falls on Thursday, November 28, 2019, this year and now it’s time to share your delicious turkey dinner with friends and family, should you choose to go the traditional route for the holiday.

As a general reminder, you should always test your turkey with a thermometer and cook to a minimum temperature of 165 degrees. Williams Sonoma reported that you should take your turkey out of the oven when the thermometer registers between three and four degrees below the minimum cooking time.

This will help make sure that your turkey retains the maximum amount of moisture, to keep from drying out. If you have a digital thermometer and are able to preset the time, it may make your cooking experience a little easier.

Make sure the thermometer does not touch bone of the reading will be inaccurate, as reported by Gourmet Love to Know. In this video Karl Angel, Head Chef of Picasso, shows us how to deep-fry a Turkey.
