Deep Fried Turkey

Back to Chicken & Turkey

Sandy, Colorado Springs Tailgater

Creole Seasoning:
13 oz salt
1 1/2 oz ground black pepper
2 oz ground red pepper
1 oz garlic powder
1 oz chili powder
1 oz accent


OR you can use Cajun Power Garlic Sauce

Depending on how much seasoning you want injected into the turkey depends on how much to dilute. We like alot of spices...so we will dilute about half of this mixture to a consistancy that will flow thru an injection needle. Then just inject the turkey to your heart's content!

When frying the turkey at a game you sure get a lot of spectators wondering what in the world you are doing and a lot of people just coming to see what the wonderful smell is. In any event you meet alot of different people...such as The Commissioner of Tailgating...wondering what you are doing!

Hints:

  • Use a thawed turkey not to exceed 18 lbs.
  • Inject turkey with Creole Seasoning (diluted with water)
  • Fill turkey fryer with vegetable oil (make sure it will not overflow when turkey is put in)
  • Heat oil to 350 degrees
  • Cook for 3 minutes per pound plus 5 minutes more.
