Have never used peanut oil.

Got my fryer years ago, looked at peanut oil.

$30 to fill the fryer?
With an oil that will go rancid fairly quick?

NFW, my ancestors would haunt me.

Corn oil works great.

My wife worked in a c-store that fried chicken.
They filtered their grease as they pumped it out to
change it.

FREE, FREE, FREE!
Use it twice, toss it.

FREE!

I worked great too.

Well, I won't be deep frying the bird after all. We're having our turkey meal today, and wife decided to just roast it in the oven. It is a 20 pound bird, and that's really bigger than I like to deep fry, as I like those around 10-12 pounds or so. Now, I've got all that peanut oil I bought just sitting there. It won't go to waste, as we'll use it for frying fish, chicken, and probably a smaller turkey.

Just a quick tip.
James makes a point, over about 12# and your bird gets too thick.
It will not cook properly.

That too say,
You can not substitute a big chicken for a turkey and deep fry it.
In-laws raise big roasters, they brought one over and i fried it.
Beautiful when I pulled it out, nice and golden brown.
And raw as, (I'm being clean here, won't say it) it was raw inside.
We popped it in the oven to finish, and it was delicious. But not
for that days supper. Lucky, we always cook extra,and a bit.

There is a reason that fryers are called fryers.
Someday, I want to try frying whole fryers. Might work.
But, they cost more than cut up cluck. So I would have to
pay too much, to possibly screw up supper.

We fry boston butts, they are better than turkeys and I really like the fried turkey.

Yes in tight blue jeans! Any way have done it a couple of times and was surprised how well it came out. A local Vietnamese restaurant serves deep fried beef with a garlic chili paste Yum!

We used to filet the breasts. Inject with cajuan seasoning then slice in strips. Make a coating of onion soup packet in flour and roll the strips in this and then deep fry.
I laughed at my two year old grandson running around with one in his fist like a lollipop and chowing down.

I just saw this thread as I gave yesterday the day off. I have fried maybe 100 turkeys with no incidents. Done as many as 11 in a single morning-‘course I have a big pot. A really big pot. I can fry three 20lb birds at a time no problem. Just thaw them good, pat dry, use a good cable to lower them in and wait. Never been close to burning down the house, lol.
