Take These Precautions If You’re Frying Your Turkey
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Home cooking fires – especially when it comes to deep frying turkeys – are all too common at this time of the year.
Experts have a few tips to keep your holiday dinner a safe one.
Use The Right Sized Bird
Experts said the best-sized bird for deep frying is typically 12 – 14 pounds.
Make Sure It’s Thawed
Your turkey must be properly thawed before it’s dipped in the oil. A frozen bird can cause the oil to boil over.
Place Fryer In Proper Place
Fryer placement is key. Make sure your fryer is on a level spot outside, far away from your home and other structures.
Do not overfill your fryer with oil. When it comes time to dip the turkey, make sure to do so slowly.
Make sure to have a fire extinguisher handy, and never use water on a grease fire.
