That's such crap. Of course it's going to overflow if you have it too full, or have a bunch of water/ice on the turkey. Just like frying anything else. I'm sure there are plenty of idiots out there who injure themselves horribly, though.

BTW, deep fried turkey is really good....

You mean you can actually cook turkeys with them? Is that kind of like brewing that cockale in Papaizan's book?

There's marks on my turkey fryer that show how high to put the oil and it's barely to the halfway mark. The manual had in big bold letters on the bottom of every page DO NOT USE INDOORS OR OVERFILL FIRE HAZARD but I guess people are lazy.

My pop does turkeys with his all the time but WTF is up with that video?

Who cooks a half frozen turkey?
Where did you think the oil would go when you over filled it?
Did you think the kettle wouldnt tip over if ya push it over?
No one ever told you to put a lid on a oil/greese fire?
You never thought that a piece of metal full of 350 degree oil and over a direct flame WOULD BE HOT?

. . . my head is starting to hurt . . .

I can't run the clip, but the one time I saw someone actually do a turkey, they ended up setting the parking lot on fire.

my (wife's) family fries their turkey every year for thanksgiving. It is the best turkey I have ever had! get a good injector and shoot that sucker up with some flavors. watch the temp and you end up with an incredible crispy on the out side, super juicy on the inside bird in very little time.

ive fried a few turkeys...we inject the turkey with "special sauce" and normally use half peanut oil and half shortening - cook at 350 for 5 minutes per pound. YUMMMMMMY

That video was actually pretty sweet. We've had the fryer overflow once pretty majorly... didnt flame up like that though. If you do use one of these fryers, COOK OUTSIDE, and cook somewhere when you wont mind some lingering lard... like your back yard off in a corner.
