Nope, not spending the money on all that oil. If I get up off me arse and finish the UDS I'll smoke a bird.

I've had a deep fried turkey and it was very good, but so is the wife's roasted turkey, and it's easier.

And I'm not wasting a perfectly good turkey fryer on frying a turkey!

We have smoked our turkey for the past couple of years and are going back to roasting this year just to change things up.

We just moved into this house in June and its a small subdivision (<40 houses.) The other day I was out doing yard work and the HOA pres who lives kitty-corner from us stopped by to invite us to his annual Thanksgiving Eve turkey fry. The have 2 burners going and folks from the neighborhood bring their turkey down and drop them in one after the other. He said last year they did over a dozen! Sounds like the perfect setup to me: everyone shares the cost of the oil and someone else uses their burner for that purpose...

crisis averted!

i went to go build my "turkey derricck" (from alton brown/good eats) and discovered my 7.5 gallon brew kettle was to short.

thanks to craigslist, i now have ANOTHER propane cooker (70k BTU) and a taller enough pot (but i think it's only 5 gallons, so no brewing upgrade)

i think i will sell the "new" stove to see if i can make all/some of my $40 back

I've got one brining up right now.. just put it in the fridg.. I think I'll toss it in the smoker tomorrow.. Early, I know.. but... it's thawed.. no room in the freezer. Smoke it up.. have some for dinner.. package the rest and make smoked turkey soup to warm up those cold(er) evenings.

I've done quite a few in the Big Easy "Oilless Fryer" and have been very impressed with the results, as long as you brine the turkey. The white meat tends to get very dry without the brine. It isn't quite as good as a bird done it oil, but is very close, and much less expensive.

One alternative you may look into if you are in an area with a Bojangles, they are offering fired turkey's this year for about $40.00. We had one at work on Friday, it was as good as any I've ever had.

I am in the heart of BoJangles country. It's $39 and change here too. It seems like it has been that same price for several years. Kinda surprising.
