There are two options when frying a turkey. You can take the traditional approach and use propane fryers. They should be used outdoors in accordance with the manufacturer’s safety procedures. Never use them on a wooden deck or leave them unattended. Or you can use a Master built Electric Deep Fryer that can be used indoors on kitchen counter tops, tables, inside garages and on covered patios. Be sure to keep children and pets away. But either way you choose, always remember:
- Wear oven mitts.
- Avoid use of alcohol and keep a fire extinguisher nearby, as you would with any type of cooking.
