Turkey Fryer Reviews

Turkey frying is the fastest way to cook a turkey. By deep frying a turkey you can cook it in as little as 3 minutes per pound. That's a 20-pound turkey in 60 minutes. Frying also delivers incredible flavor, but there is a danger to cooking with gallons of boiling oil over an open flame. This has led to a whole series of innovative products to cook your next turkey (chickens, roasts, and more too) quickly, easily and with great flavor.
