You just have to know what you are doing when frying a turkey. Put it in slow with the right amount of oil and your fine, oh make sure its thawed completly also.

I brew in my basement, just crack the door 6" when I have the flame wide open. When just maintaining the boil I shut the door. I keep a CO detector handy, and it always reads zero.

I was wondering about brewin in the garage also. My wife has developed a smell aversion to boiling wort and hell hath no fury like a pregnant wife!!

Plus it's getting kinda nice out here in Kansas so I wouldn't mind brewing outside some. I should hook up one of the spare TV's in the garage! I already have my beer fridge out there.... I love it when a plan comes together!
Keg 1 : Castle Dea Oatmeal Stout
