Turkey Frying Safety

11/16/2021 (Permalink)

Thanksgiving is right around the corner and you know what that means! Time to cook up the turkey. One way, arguably the best way, to cook a turkey is to fry it. While it's relatively easy and incredibly delicious, it's very important to take great precaution and be fully prepared for what goes into deep frying a turkey. Please note some of the most important safety tips below:

Fry Your Turkey Away From the House. This means NO garages, too! You never want to be closer than 10 ft to any structure, weather it be a garage your home, a shed, etc. 

Find a Flat Spot in the Yard. Having a flat spot to place your fryer on can really help minimize any tips or accidents when you place the turkey in the fryer as well as remove it. Remember, that oil is HOT and if it were to tip over, it could do a lot of damage. 

Never Leave Your Fryer Unattended. Even if you're certain it will be OK sitting for 2 minutes while you run inside for a drink- don't risk it! Anything can happen. It is especially important to make sure there are no children around the fryer at any time. 

Always Be Prepared. Expect the unexpected! Be overly prepared for anything that could happen! Have a fire extinguisher near by incase of emergency. Be mindful that water and oil don't mix, so a hose won't do the trick should a mishap occur. 

Happy frying & Happy Thanksgiving!
