Dad got Mom an awesome deep fried turkey maker for a gift this year. I am not sure if it was “for Christmas” but it was a gift so that we could make a deep fried turkey for Christmas. It was an expensive possess. Peanut oil is expensive!
We read up on-line about the process. It was only supposed to take an hour or so. It took 2 1/2.
While Karl seasoned the turkey I found these instructions sitting on the counter. They said that you needed to measure the amount of oil by first setting the turkey with water in the fryer to make sure you have enough oil. The warning reads:
The fight at that point became the temperature. We couldn’t get the temperature to where we wanted it. That is way it took so long.
It was getting really dark at this point so we pulled out the awesome new LED flash light my dad got us for Christmas.
We checked on the Turkey a couple of times…it looked good, but it just wasn’t quite done.
The wind kept picking up and blowing our the fire. We had to get pretty clever to keep it going.
It was at this point, as brother Sumateia say the Turkey come out of the oil her quietly said, “I love you turkey.”
We ate and mostly everyone liked the turkey…especially brother Suma….I think I heard it again as he bit into this wing…”I love you turkey!”
