"Fry Your Turkey, Not Your House"

Thursday, November 19th, 2009


I’m borrowing that headline from cookturkey.net and their posting about the dangers from, and the safety needed, when frying a turkey for Thanksgiving.

To be honest growing up in New York I never heard of a “fried turkey” for Thanksgiving, or honestly for any day!

Its only been the past number of years, and probably thanks in a large part to the chefs over at the Food Network, that frying has become another popular way to serve your holiday bird. (BTW – I lived in Los Angeles for 10 years and never ran into anyone that fried their turkey either!)

So stop by cookturkey.net for their list of things to do and a number of videos showing what happens when you don’t plan and prepare when frying a turkey.

& America’s Thanksgiving

Nov 19 : 07 days till Thanksgiving

Did you know that the average Thanksgiving turkey weighs 15 pounds?

Hens can range from 10 to 18 pounds, while toms can be as large as 25 pounds. The most traditional way to prepare a turkey is to stuff and roast it, although some chefs — particularly in the south — swear by deep frying their birds.

Thanksgiving Day in America is a time to offer thanks, a time for family gatherings and holiday meals. A time of turkeys, stuffing, and pumpkin pie. A time for Indian corn, holiday parades and giant balloons. We are delighted to invite you to partake in our Thanksgiving celebration. Our table is full this year, but we always have room for one more! So join us for a new Did You Know? each day as we count down to Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving will be celebrated on Thursday November 26th.
