Thanksgiving this Month! …. Turkey Fryers – Safety Tip:

If you are planning on frying a turkey for Thanksgiving this year…here are some tips;

   -Make sure the turkey is completely thawed to avoid hot oil splatters

   -Keep kids and pets away from the fryer

   -Determine the correct amount of oil by first placing the turkey and water in the fryer.

                (remove the turkey and measure water. That is how much oil to cook with!)

   -Keep fryer outdoors, off of decks and out of garages

   -Never operate a fryer in snow or rain

   -Make sure fryer is on a level surface

   -Choose a small turkey – never 12 pounds or more

   -Never leave fryer unattended

   -Make sure the fryer has temperature controls so the oil is not overheated.

Be Safe and have a Happy Thanksgiving!!
