Like Archimedes in the Bathtub
Figure out the amount of oil you'll need for frying by trying this displacement trick: Before unwrapping your turkey, place it in the frying pot and add enough water to cover it completely. Remove the turkey from the pot and measure the water. That's how much oil you should use. Do not fill your frying pot above the "maximum fill" line. Leave the pot off the burner.
