Fall is here. The leaves are coming down. I've shut all my storm windows. And I've been thinking I want to fry a turkey for Thanksgiving. I've never done it; actually I've never even tried fried turkey. But it sounds like a genius idea. I just need to get my hands on one of those big propane burners, and a huge pot. I know they sell the stuff as a "turkey fryer" but I'm pretty sure I can go to an army surplus store and get the same thing for a lot cheaper. Has anyone ever tried this? How did it go? What kind of oil should i use? What about crisco? I love frying stuff in crisco.
