Fried Turkey

We were in a "frying frenzy" this weekend...

We try to have a "turkey fry" at least once a year. It's just something kind of fun to do - especially because many people have never tasted one. We usually inject (with a big fat syringe) only one side of the turkey with spices and leave the other without. It's interesting to compare the difference in flavor that the spices can make. This turkey was about 13 pounds. - Any bigger and it takes longer to cook AND it's a little more work to cram it into that pot. Once the oil was heated up, it took about 45 minutes to cook.
