We like to try new things here at Glover Gardens (sometimes really new, and sometimes just new to us). A few years ago, the Grill-Meister set out to master deep-fried turkey. After some intense Google research, he settled on Alton Brown’s version, complete with its Turkey Trestle. The recipe is great, the instructions are clear and easy to follow, and the method for all of it is illustrated in a short video. It was a rousing success. Here’s a link to the recipe: Alton Brown’s Deep-Fried Turkey.
The Turkey Trestle method that Alton Brown described in his video worked very well and ensured that the bird could be safely and easily removed from the bubbling hot oil. You’ll find the video on the page with the recipe. I highly recommend watching the video if you’re just learning how to deep-fry a turkey.
