Ingredients for a Safer Thanksgiving Propane Deep Frying Turkey Tips

November 27, 2019


Are you looking to get out of the kitchen this Thanksgiving and free up some oven space? Propane can do that. Deep fry your turkey with propane this Thanksgiving for a delectable, succulent, and crispy bird.


Now let’s talk safety. The Council has some tips for frying your turkey this Thanksgiving:


  • Size Matters. 8 pounds to 10 pounds turkeys are best for frying.

  • Place your propane fryer outdoors on a flat open area away from kids, critters, and anything flammable. 

  • Please, don’t fry in the garage, indoors, or on wooden decks.

  • Measure how much oil you need before plopping that bird in the fryer. So hot oil won’t overflow. 

  • Good heavens don’t make a mess. Never fry a frozen turkey. It’ll cause hot oil to splatter everywhere.

  • Do not stuff a turkey you intend to fry. The only one that needs to get stuffed, this Thanksgiving, is you. 

  •  Fry at 375 degrees or less. Hotter isn’t better.


Remember: only fry a fully thawed turkey, do it outdoors, measure the oil, and keep it under 375°. 


Oil-less infrared propane deep fryers are also always an option.
