Chef Scott Serpas of Serpas True Food's Turkey Frying Tips:
- To prep, chef Scott Serpas recommends brining the turkey over other preparation methods.
- Brine the turkey in brown sugar, water, pepper corn, kosher salt, bay leaves, onion, garlic, thyme and liquid crab oil for spice for 36-48 hours.
- Pat the turkey dry and drain with the cavity face down for 30 minutes or so, allowing it to warm up to room temperature before frying.
- Heat canola oil to 350 degrees, making sure oil is at the full temperature before inserting the turkey.
- Very slowly place the room temperature turkey into the oil, with the cavity facing down.
- Fry the turkey in the heated canola oil for 3-4 minutes per pound, being careful to consistently check the turkey with a meat thermometer (especially the thigh) and gauge it to 165 degrees.
- Pull the turkey out of the oil and allow it to drain and cool with the cavity facing down for 30 minutes before serving.
