How Will You Cook Your Turkey This Thanksgiving?
November 21, 2014
Now that we have gotten through Halloween, it is time to start thinking of which groceries we will need to bring our Thanksgiving menu to life! While it goes without saying that a turkey may be on that list, have you thought about how you are going to prepare it? The most common ways to cook a turkey are baking, brining, and deep-frying.
One of the most popular options is deep-frying your bird in a deep-fat fryer. An electric fryer is a great alternative to propane because all you have to do is plug it in! Gone are the days of lugging around propane tanks. Many electric fryers will have a thermometer inside the pan so that you do not have to risk getting splattered by hot oil when you check it! The only downside to electric deep fryers is that they typically take a bit longer to thoroughly cook your turkey.
Rather than frying, if you would like to bake your turkey, you will need a pan that is at least 4 inches deep. Your cooking time will be determined by multiplying the number of pounds of the turkey by 15! You should place a thermometer deep into the thigh when attempting to check the cooking temperature. Adding spices like garlic, salt, pepper, and other herbs that will take your turkey to the next level! Consider smearing butter over the turkey to achieve a golden-brown look. Your bird should reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees.
