Take the Guess Work out of Turkey Frying

Are you frying your turkey this Thanksgiving?

Take the guesswork out of it by utilizing a Bayou Classic thermometer to monitor the temperature of your cooking oil.



This makes it easy to know when the oil is ready to perfectly fry the turkey, every time! You’ll want to maintain a temperature between 350F and 375F, but never allow the oil to reach 400F. The turkey will cook for 3 to 3.5 minutes per pound. A 12 pound turkey will require about 40 minutes to cook @ 350F.


To determine the amount of oil required, place the turkey into the pot before you unwrap it. Add water to the pot to cover the turkey. Remove the turkey and measure the amount of water that is left in the pot. This result is the amount of oil required for that turkey.


 If multiple turkeys are to be subsequently fried, the sizes of the turkeys should be consistent, to avoid displacing too much oil, which would result in overflow and disaster.


Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving!!
