My Foolproof Butterball Indoor Electric Turkey Fryer Recipe
For my birthday I received the indoor electric turkey fryer I have often talked about but it was always shoved off my shopping list because of budgetary constraints. Well I have used my Butterball indoor electric turkey fryer to not only create the best darn turkey I have ever eaten, but many other things as well. I deep fried a whole chicken, french fries, chicken legs and thighs, chicken wings, and homemade onion rings. This has to be the most versatile deep fryer I have ever owned because it is large enough to fry up enough to feed a whole family. I cook for a family of 6, so I can personally testify that you can fit a lot of goodness into this fryer.
Well before I go rambling on too much I wanted to create this lens in honor of the tastiest turkey I have ever eaten. This is an easy, and tasty recipe that has to be (in my humble opinion) the best deep fried turkey recipe out there. I invite you to not only check out the recipe, but the videos I took to highlight the worlds best tasting turkey.
Electric Turkey Fryer Step 1 - Defrost Your Turkey
Make sure your turkey is COMPLETELY thawed before you even think about putting it into your electric turkey fryer. I put my turkey in the refrigerator for 4 days before cooking it.
Electric Turkey Fryer Step 2 - Dry The Turkey - Remember that oil and water saying....oh yea it's true
Well as you may have heard oil and water don't mix. This means if you put a wet turkey into your indoor electric turkey fryer than you WILL have hot oil popping out at you. So it is mandatory that you use a paper towel and pat the turkey dry on the outside and inside the turkey's cavity. This quick step will stop a potential safety hazard.
Electric Turkey Fryer Step 3 - Seasoning The Turkey - What would Emeril say about seasoning a turkey.....
I don't know where you get your turkey from but mine doesn't come seasoned, so let's make it happy and kick it up a notch with some Adobo seasoning and Paprika.

Electric Turkey Fryer Step 5 - Preheat The Oil To 375 - Some Use Peanut Oil but I Don't
Since my children have peanut allergies I used Canola oil to deep fry my turkey, and it tastes delicious.

Electric Turkey Fryer Step 6 - Turkey In The Basket - Getting Ready To FRY!
Place your Turkey in the electric turkey fryer basket breast side up. You can fit up to a 14lb turkey in the Butterball electric turkey fryer.
Lower The Turkey Into The Electric Turkey Fryer - It can be a bit scary the first time you use an indoor turkey fryer
Make sure to set the timer on your Butterball Electric Turkey Fryer for the appropriate time. The official manual lists the following cook time: 3.5-4 minutes per pound. I aired on the side of caution and did 4.5 minutes per pound. This made my cooking time of the turkey 61 minutes. If you are wondering this is they actual video of me using my turkey fryer for the first time.
Electric Turkey Fryer Step 7: Removing The Turkey - It needs a rest before carving
Check your deep fried turkey with a meat thermometer to make sure that it is at least 165 degrees. Check it in two places: the turkey breast and the turkey thigh. This will ensure that it is cooked all the way and it is safe to eat. Now that you are sure that it is done let it rest in the electric turkey fryer basket for about 20-30 minutes. This is important because any excess oil will drip off and the turkey relaxes so that you can carve it up nicely.
