Before you fry your turkey put a pound of good bacon in the pot when you get it up to 325 or so and let it cook, then dip it out. Imparts a great bacon flavor to the oil and into the turkey.
What a great tip! Why didn't I think of that?
Just yesterday I gave my entire turkey frying operation over to my youngest son. Pot, burner, racks, thermometer, welding gloves...everything.
Great tasting turkey but I grew weary of always being the one to deal with the oil and clean up duties on a Holiday night. I did it for decades, somebody else's turn. I'll let him know about the bacon trick.
I grew up next to a turkey farm. Dumbest animals on the face of the earth.
