We're considering deep-frying a turkey this Thanksgiving. I always brine a bird headed for the oven, but was wondering if the additional moisture in the bird, if brined, would be a disaster in a deep fryer. Any experience or suggestions on this?
Deep fried turkeys can seem like a novelty—or worse, a fire hazard—but they are deeply delicious, and done in just 40 minutes. With juicy meat, ultra crispy skin, and great flavor from a Southern rub that permeates the bird overnight, this beautiful turkey just might drive you to invest in a propane fryer. Get the recipe.
Summer is in full swing, which (hopefully) means trips to the park or the beach. If you’re taking a picnic along, you should know a few food safety rules so you can pack, transport, and eat your meal without the threat of food poisoning. Liz Weinandy
