  6. 6.  TURKEY FRYING PROBLEM? "One of the worst things that can happen with turkey frying is getting splattered with hot oil," says Eddie Bain, Investigation and Prevention Program Director at the Illinois Fire Service Institute (IFSI). "It will cause burns that are worse than fire because frying oil sticks to you.”We protect families and local businesses with the BEST insurance coverage for LESS! www.gillmanins.com
  7. 7.  TURKEY FRYING SAFETY TIPS:  Don’t place too much oil in the fryer pot – Be sure to follow your owner’s manual in order to use the proper amount of oil. If the cooking pot is overfilled, you are more likely to spill oil outside of the fryer. This oil can hit the burner and cause a fire  Do not drop a frozen or partially thawed turkey into oil - To better safeguard your cooking pot from overflowing, make sure your turkey is thawed and be sure to slowly lower it into the cooking dish. Oil spillover or splashing can evolve into a fire.  Make sure your Fryer is not too close to other structures – Over 33% of fires involving a fryer occur in a garage or on a patio. Make sure you’re far away from flammable and maintain a safe distance from buildings. Also, make sure you’re not frying on top of a wooden structure, such as a back deck or wooden porch.We protect families and local businesses with the BEST insurance coverage for LESS! www.gillmanins.com
  8. 8.  TURKEY FRYING SAFETY TIPS, continued:  Remember that Oil and water dont mix- Do NOT use ice or water to cool down or extinguish an oil fire. Keep an extinguisher (approved for cooking/grease fires) nearby and be sure to call 911 immediately for help..  Unattended cooking - Frying involves cooking with a combustible medium, otherwise known as your cooking oil or grease. Many frying units fail to have temperature controls and therefore, if you leave them unattended, the oil will continue to heat until the point of combustion.We protect families and local businesses with the BEST insurance coverage for LESS! www.gillmanins.com

  11. 11. HOLIDAY RECIPE! Total Time: 41 minutes Yield: 6-8 Servings Level: EasyDeep-Fried Turkey  INGREDIENTS: ★★★★★  1 (10-pound) turkey  2 tablespoons House seasoning, recipe follows  2 tablespoons of your favorite dry rub  3 to 5 gallons peanut oil  Cooks Note: To measure the amount of oil needed to fry the turkey, place turkey in fryer, add water to top of turkey, remove the turkey and the water line will indicate how much oil will be needed to fry your turkey. Having too much oil can cause a fire. The pot should not be more than 3/4 full or the oil could overflow when the turkey is added.  DIRECTIONS:  Wash bird inside and out, and allow to drain. Rub turkey all over with House Seasoning. Coat turkey with dry rub. Allow the bird to sit until it reaches room temperature.  Heat peanut oil in a turkey fryer or a very, very large stockpot to 350 degrees F. Lower turkey into hot oil, very carefully, making sure it is fully submerged.  Fry turkey for 3 minutes per pound plus 5 minutes per bird.  Remove turkey from oil and drain on paper towels.
