Also to know is, how big of a turkey can you put in a 30 qt fryer?
Usually, a-24 quart fryer pot will be able to hold a 14-pound turkey, a 26-quart can hold a 16-pound one, and a 30-quart fryer pot can hold up a turkey that's 20 pounds.
Subsequently, question is, how many Litres of oil to deep fry a turkey? Fill the pot with peanut or canola oil up to the mark you made earlier—you'll need 4 to 5 gallons to fry a 12- to 14-pound turkey in a 30-quart pot.
Also question is, how much oil do you put in a deep fryer?
My deep fryer requires about 2 quarts of oil to get to the "minimum" line. That would cost about $25 to fill. Olive oil has a low smoke point and isn't recommended for deep frying. Never heard of peanut oil being an acquired taste.
Does Turkey have to be fully submerged in oil?
When working with large amounts of hot oil, select a cooking vessel large enough to completely submerge the turkey without it spilling over. The oil should cover the turkey by 1 to 2 inches. Select a safe location outdoors for deep fat frying a turkey.
