Deep Fried Turkey w/ instant read thermometer (?)

Robert | Dec 29, 2005 01:20 PM

I'm going to deep fry a turkey tomorrow and am wondering if I can use my instant read thermometer (the kind that has a wire and goes into the oven for a constant read) without doing damage to it. The leader wire will of course be submerged in the 325 degree oil.

I'm also thinking about putting the bird in a brine for a couple of days. Is that a good idea?

tia, Robert
