The Big Easy® Southern Thanksgiving Turkey
Nothing brings family and friends together like a delicious, golden-fried Thanksgiving turkey. But without the proper equipment, your cooked bird may be all style, and no substance. This Thanksgiving, use The Big Easy® Oil-less Turkey Fryer – which uses just two tablespoons of oil for that crispy, savory, fried signature turkey.
IngredientsServes 10-12 People
Prepare turkey for cooking, removing the giblets, neck, etc. Also, make sure to remove any plastic or metal ties used to hold legs or cavity in place.
Rinse the turkey in tepid water and pat dry.
Apply dry rub to outside of turkey. Then, work rub in between the skin and the meat on the breast and leg/thigh area.
Lightly spray or brush oil on outside of turkey.
Truss the legs and place turkey legs down in the cooking basket. Place the basket into The Big Easy Oil-less Turkey Fryer.
Insert meat thermometer in the breast so that the tip does not touch bone and the dial is easily read when the basket is in the cooker.
Turn on the cooker to medium high cooking to a target internal temperature of 165°F.
Turn off the cooker and remove the cooking basket. Place the basket on a shallow sheet pan, allowing the turkey to rest for 15 to 20 minutes.
Remove the turkey from the cooking basket and carve.
