Don’t wait until Thanksgiving to buy a Turkey Fryer

Are you still toying with the idea of having a deep fried turkey this Thanksgiving? What are you waiting for? If you are going to go out and purchase a conventional turkey fryer or an outdoor propane deep fryer, now is the time to do it! You are obviously not going to buy one & try it out for the first time on Thanksgiving Day. That’s just crazy. You need a little time to get to know your new cooking equipment. Even if you don’t want to start out with a turkey, it’s a good idea to fry something. Make some chicken wings (make sure all poultry is properly thawed!!!) make french fries, onion rings, fried green tomatoes. You want to establish a relationship with your fryer before you invite the whole family over on a holiday & you want to look professional. You know, like you know what you’re doing. So why not actually know what you’re doing! You’ve taken time to get to know your grill. You know the hot zones, you know your safety zones. You should be as well aware of your deep fryer as your grill.

You can get a conventional outdoor propane turkey fryer, or you could get a safer Cajun fryer. The point is, do some research now. Figure out what fryer would best suit your needs, and then get one and use it now!

So many people will purchase a turkey fryer, and only use it for the holidays. They pack them away in the garage after they holidays are over & there they sit. There are hundreds of things that you can do with a traditional turkey fryer. Did you know that besides deep frying, you can boil & steam in that fryer pot. You can have a traditional southeastern Low- Country Boil, a New England Clam Bake. You can even make a giant pot of gumbo in it if you want. Use it in the spring to make maple syrup. Most people don’t have a pot big enough in the house to do that anyway.

Take your outdoor propane fryer tailgating, camping, or just use it for an afternoon cookout. The point is, just use it.
