Deep Fried Turkey Safety Tips

11/24/2022 (Permalink)

Thanksgiving is a time for making memories and celebrating holiday traditions, including family recipes. With the speed of deep-frying a turkey and the irresistible flavor it yields, turkey frying has become a Thanksgiving favorite for many. If you plan to deep-fry your holiday bird this year, be sure you know how to safely use the fryer and brush up on these precautions provided by the National Fire Prevention Agency to protect yourself, your guests, and your home.

  • Set up your deep fryer more than 10 feet away from any structure. Keep off the deck, out of the garage, and a safe distance away from trees.
  • The oil must be always even and steady to ensure safety. Place the fryer on a flat, level surface and carefully gauge the amount of oil needed.
  • Make sure your turkey is completely thawed and dry before slowly placing it in the hot oil.
  • Do not leave the fryer unattended. Continuously monitor the temperature of the oil.
  • Protect yourself. Lids and handles can become very hot and cause burns. Wear proper personal protective equipment.
  • Always have a fire extinguisher ready. A multipurpose, dry-powder unit is best in the event the oil ignites.
