Fry Your Own Turkey
Instructions for Frying Your Turkey
Please read all instructions carefully before attempting to fry your turkey!
Follow these simple instructions to fry your own turkey just like the Cajun Turkey Company. Enclosed is enough Geaux Juice to fry one raw, 12-15 pound turkey.
Before anything, leave your turkey in its packaging and place it into your frying pot. Cover the turkey with water, and then remove the turkey from the pot. Mark the water line on the inside of the pot. This is how high you will fill the pot with oil when youre ready to fry your turkey.
Injecting Your Turkey
Pour all Geaux Juice into a mixing bowl and microwave for one minute or until warm.
Remove your defrosted turkey from its packaging. Clean out neck and giblets.
Rinse and clean your turkey thoroughly.
Place your turkey breast down in the sink.
Filling your syringe full of Geaux Juice, you will randomly inject your turkey all over. When injecting the turkey, insert the needle deep into the meat, than as you press down the plunger, slowly pull out the needle. This will help spread the Geaux Juice evenly throughout your turkey. Whisk Geaux Juice in the bowl every few injections or it will separate.
Turn turkey over and continue injecting until about 1/3 cup of Geaux Juice remains in the bottom of your bowl.
Pour remaining Geaux Juice over your turkey to coat it.
Completely dust your turkey with Mr. Billys Bayou Blend, top and bottom.
Place the turkey in refrigerator, uncovered, and allow it to marinade overnight.
Frying Your Turkey
Do NOT fry your turkey indoors! Find a well-ventilated area to set up your cook station. If possible, cover area with a non-flammable tarp before frying.
Pour peanut oil to the mark made previously on your frying pot.
Pre-heat the oil to 350 degrees.
Remove turkey from the refrigerator and place in metal basket or turkey holder.
When the peanut oil reaches 350 degrees, VERY CAREFULLY lower turkey in the oil. We recommend that you wear heavy, non-flammable gloves because when the cold turkey the hot oil, the oil will erupt. DO NOT drop turkey into pot or only more oil will splash!
Cook turkey for approximately 3 minutes per pound. Every few minutes turn the basket to ensure the turkey is loose in the pot.
A 15 lb raw turkey should be ready in 45 minutes. The Cajun way of knowing its done is when it floats like a cork!
When its finished cooking, carefully remove turkey from the pot.
The Cajun Turkey Company will not be responsible for anyone frying their own turkey by these instructions. It is VERY dangerous to fry a turkey. If you do not know what you are doing, the oil can severely burn you or start a fire.
