Is deep fried turkey good?

Deep-frying a turkey is a vastly superior option for countless reasons. The most important: Like everyone who's ever tried it will tell you, it tastes better than roast turkey. The white meat is moister, the dark meat is even more flavorful, and the skin, while not always totally crispy, is never slimy and gross.

Can you use canola oil to deep fry a turkey?

Canola oil is low in saturated fat and high in monounsaturated fat so it is a more healthful choice than any other vegetable oil, including peanut oil. And canola oil's high smoke point makes it ideal for deep-frying. Choose a fresh turkey or make sure it is completely thawed before deep-frying.

Keep the Turkey Cold and Let It Brine for 8 to 18 Hours
