Our answer to how to deep fry turkey for years has been the same: carefully - outdoors - away from the house and anything else that is flammable.
We also didn't like handling the large quantity of oil required for our previous set-up. It was expensive, it was heavy, and it was a bother to clean.
This system worked for years - but, was there anything new, different, interesting, safer?
Is there an alternative system answering the question of how to deep fry turkey?
How about an oil-less infrared system that promises to cook your turkey in 8 to 10 minutes per pound?
The advantage is no oil - and it does free up your indoor oven.
The disadvantage is no oil - it does not have that special flavor of a deep fried turkey.
Okay I have to admit I have not had a turkey from this infrared oil-less cooker. I am basing my speculation on the fact that I have had oven baked "French fries." They don't taste bad - but they are not the same as fried fries. The oil (especially peanut oil traditionally used to deep fry turkey adds a dimension that you do not get from an oven. And since there is no oil, this device is an oven. I assume that the infrared system does a good job of producing crispy skin.
If you have had a turkey from an oil-less (sometimes called oil free turkey cooker) please let us know if I am mistaken about the taste and I will be happy to add your information and reviews.
From reviews we have read this is a high heat outdoor oven. It cooks quickly, but no more quickly than our high temperature roasted turkey recipe which can be made in your indoor oven. Also, cooking is not as quick as a true deep fried turkey. You also have the propane hassle with at least some models of this cooker. Using propane, it is for outdoor use only.
