Weekly Tip - Take Care if Deep Frying a Turkey
Five dangers of deep frying a turkey:
Turkey fryers can easily tip over, spilling hot cooking oil over a large area.
An overfilled cooking pot will cause cooking oil to spill when the turkey is put in, and a partially frozen turkey will cause cooking oil to splatter when put in the pot.
Even a small amount of cooking oil spilling on a hot burner can cause a large fire.
Without thermostat controls, deep fryers can overheat oil to the point of starting a fire.
The sides of the cooking pot, lid and pot handles can get dangerously hot.
Thanks to the
US Fire Administration
for the safety info. Take a look at their webpage for additional tips.
