Turkey Frying Safety Tips
Whether it’s the holidays or just a great weekend to fry a bird, make sure you do it safely. With the Big Easy, you don’t have to worry about oil, since it uses infrared heat rather than oil to cook. However, you still need to make sure you follow a few precautions.
Move It Away Set up your fryer so that it’s not on a deck, in a garage and is a safely away from trees or other things that could ignite.
Don’t Leave It Never leave your big easy unattended, especially around children and pets.
Keep It Level Make sure it’s on level ground where you won’t need to move it and that the surface you put it on is even.
Thaw Your Bird Make sure your Thanksgiving turkey is completely thawed and dry before you start to fry it.
Watch the Temp Handles and lids can get very hot. Make sure you use oven mitts.
Don’t Weather the Storm Never user your fryer in the rain or snow.
Make It Smaller A bird that’s around ten pounds to 12 pounds is best.
Skip the Stuffing Just fry the turkey not the stuffing and avoid marinades.
