Fried Turkey and being Thankful 2018

It was a great Thanksgiving, once again.

We oriented the turkey correctly this year (ass-up). It is a bit more difficult to load it this way, but I had help.

The Daughter was in charge of the cheese board, #1 son set the table, and #2 son was in charge of taking the pics.

The guys mostly tend the burner and have a few beers. When the oil gets to 385F, we kill the flame and carefully drop the bird.

When the oil temp drops to 275, we reignite the flame and regulate it between 275-285F. The math worked out to 52 minutes of fry time for a 12.4 lb turkey.

The turchetta, ancho and orange zest pork loin, mushroom bread pudding (dressing) and brussels sprouts… all turned out well.

#2 son participated in the annual Holiday chalkboard art (his cat themed work is on the left above). My board also displays the turkey fry math.
