According to the turkey experts at Butterball, there are a handful of simple things you can do to make sure your deep-fried turkey is a hit:
-It is best to deep-fry a turkey that is less than 14 pounds. If you are frying a turkey over 15 pounds, make sure to separate the leg and thigh pieces from the breast and fry them separately.
-Be sure your turkey is completely thawed.
-Remove any excess fat.
-Do not stuff your turkey when deep-frying. Cook the stuffing separately in the oven.
