Damn right. Cooking a turkey (or other roadkill) whilst in my ratty shorts with a Trump t-shirt with a brewski in one hand and a long fork in the other.

I am telling you, it don't get better. I'll make the menfolk wear their sunday go-to-meeting bib overalls.

Pictures will follow.

I'm thinking that when I die, I don't want to be cremated. I want to be rendered up in a deep fryer.





nahhhh.

I don't care about the danger. I am NOT frying a turkey that costs less than the fucking cooking oil you need to do it.

If you only have two arms, as I presume, don't you feel somewhat naked without a gun? :notsure:

When you calculate the volume of oil to put into the fryer, taking of course into account the volume of the turkey, don't forget to adjust for the thermal expansion coefficient of the oil.

If you're one of those who prefers to just "eyeball it", then be prepared for one of two things.....either a half raw Turkey, or a pretty column of blazing inferno.

If you find yourself with a column of blazing inferno, don't be an idiot and use water. Be a real Floridian and use gasoline.

Send pics.

Definitely don't be a pussy and buy a stable base, and don't use a propane fuel with a control valve and safety kill switch. That's boring. You can do just fine with a three pronged rickety metal stool and a wood camp fire or charcoals. Or gasoline if you're in a hurry.

If you're feeling nervous, just invite a buddy who volunteers at the fire department. That's what you pay taxes for.

And don't just drop it into the frothing 700 degree oil like those idiots in that video. Where's the fun in that. Make a game out of it and see if you can toss it in there from a distance. Real Floridians can land a turkey into a deep fryer from 10 feet away, no rim.

Please, please take a video.

Kid3 had hosted a Friendsgiving dinner last night; having a dinner for friends instead of family. I had never heard of such a thing but it's pretty cool.

I've had a friend for dinner more than once.

They are tasty if prepared right.

I see it a lot among social groups where a lot of them have dysfunctional family relationships. Their trusted friends become their "family of choice".
