Safety Tips: Deep Frying turkeys
can be dangerous!!!
Away from The House Set up the turkey fryer more than
10 feet away from your home and keep children and pets away.
Never leave it unattended.
Find Flat Ground The oil must be even and steady at
all times to ensure safety. Place the fryer on a flat, level
surface and carefully gauge the amount of oil needed.
Use a Thawed and Dry Turkey
Make sure your Thanksgiving turkey is completely thawed
and dry. Extra water will cause the oil to bubble furiously
and spill over. If oil spills from the fryer onto the
burner, it can cause a fire.
Monitor the Temp Use
caution when touching the turkey fryer. The lid and handle
can become very hot and could cause burns. Also be sure to
keep track of the oils temperature as many fryers do not
have their own thermostats.
Be Prepared Have a fire
extinguisher (multipurpose, dry-powder) ready at all times
in the event that the oil ignites.
