What is the best turkey deep frying technique?

luegar | Oct 31, 2011 07:09 AM

I plan to deep fry my first turkey this thanks giving and have been searching the web for the best technique.

It seems the world of deep frying turkey's is totally torn over which of these two to use:

1.- Heat oil up to 250 degrees, lower turkey and once in bring oil up to 350 degrees


2.- Heat oil to about 360 degrees, lower turkey and then lower heat to maintain even 350 degrees.

What are your thoughts or experiences with these techniques? Any theories as to why one would be better than the other?
