    It was Phil... the breast meat was moist and tender. I have found no other way of grilling/roasting a bird to impart the perfect, moist, succulent white breast meat, as deep frying it.

    Currently re filtering my 5 gallons of peanut oil... to reuse again. $30.00 per 5 gallon makes it uneconomical way of cooking, unless you can get a few more uses from it.

    Smoking the bird ain't bad either, but the best I've ever tasted was deep fried in my backyard about 5 yrs ago.

    Jeez, and I thought the Scots held the record for unhealthy eating.

    That must be a cholesterol bomb.

    Nope. It drains pretty well Tom... wasn't greasy at all. One of the particulars in frying a whole bird like this, is to use a kife to make slits in the skin where the hot oil could collect after removing it from the fryer; such as where the thighs and legs are attached, the wing joints, etc.

    I bow to your greater knowledge, Will.

    My only experience of deep frying is the famous Scottish deep fried Mars bar. I don't own a fryer of any kind.

    the best thing of deep fry is 3 minutes a pound
    you can also run through a few batches of French fries (sweet potatoes sliced or russets) while the turkey rests.
