Mom put me in charge of cooking the turkey; she said she could use a few good paws to help her out. I have decided to fry my turkey! Let’s see, I will need a recipe:
– 1 turkey plucked and gutted- leave feet for holding turkey
– 5 gal bucket peanut oil
– extra large deep fryer heated to 500 degrees.
Easy Peasy! Off to the grocery store I go! I looked all over for a turkey with feet, but couldn’t find one so I settled for one without feet. I hope this doesn’t ruin the taste of the turkey! Next the peanut oil, oh wait, I need a couple of cans of cranberry sauce too. When I got home, I had to thaw the turkey. I figured the bathtub was a great place to thaw the turkey, I can splash around in the tub while it thaws (Well I am a Golden Retriever). Mom says that I am a messy cook therefore, I decided to cook the turkey on the deck, this way I won’t be in Moms way and she can’t yell at me for making a mess. Things were going great, I filled the pot completely full of the peanut oil, and wow did it get hot! Ruff! The oil got a bit smoky and bubbly. I figured it must be hot enough now for the turkey! I threw in the turkey and that’s when things got really hot. Oil splattered and spilled all over the new deck and somehow, the deck caught fire! I tried to put out the fire with the water hose, but that didn’t work out to well. Now the fire spread to the garage and then I heard a loud boom. Wow that hurt my ears! Mom ran outside to see what happened. There I was fur-less and things were ablaze. She ran inside and called 9-1-1. Don’t worry I am fine, but its cold out and I miss my fur coat and oh yeah. I am sooooo grounded and Uncle Eric took my car keys away! We ended up having Chinese take-out for Thanksgiving.
Here are a few safety tips from Uncle Eric:
- More than one-third of fires involving a fryer start in a garage or patio. Cook outdoors at a safe distance from any buildings or trees and keep the fryer off any wooden structures, such as a deck or patio.
- Avoid a hot oil spill over by first filling the pot with cold oil and then lower the thawed turkey into the pot to determine how much oil should be either added or removed.
- Shut off the fuel source or flame when adding the turkey to the hot oil to prevent a dangerous flare-up if oil does spill over the rim.
- Make sure your turkey is properly thawed before lowering it slowly into the pot.
- Never leave a hot turkey fryer unattended.
- Do not use ice or water to cool down oil or extinguish an oil fire.
- Keep an extinguisher approved for cooking or grease fire nearby.
