Any one use the turkey fryer burner indoors to cook 5 gal batches. I had done many batches inside and today when wife was home she went off the deep end and thought I was going to kill myself, So in hte middle of a cook had to move out doors in 10 degree weather. Seems to me what is the diff from using a gas stove????

Propane is different from natural gas, and yes, it can kill you if not ventilated well.

I've got an oversized two car garage with 11' ceilings and I was thinking about cranking a batch in there where it's a balmy 35 degrees. I figure the oxygen levels should stay pretty good with a quick opening of the doors now and then.

Were you using it in a house or in a garage? In a garage, maybe with the doors open - but inside ? Never should you do that. A turkey fryer can use much more fuel than your run of the mill stove does, even if all the burners and oven were running full blast -- therefore many more fumes to deal with. It should say on the burner, for outside use only.

Here in Massachusetts, home of the freakish building codes, you can't ever have bottled fuel (of that size) inside your home, let alone use it.

If you don't know whether it's safe to do or not then you shouldn't.

There were several cases of carbon monoxide poisoning (including a few deaths) this winter from people using propane grills indoors to heat their homes. I may be wrong, but it's my understanding that ventilation is necessary to dissipate the CO and not just to provide fresh air for combustion. It's the same principle behind not leaving a car running in an enclosed space. So I'd agree with your wife; move the grill outside
