Cajun Deep Fried Turkey

Cajun Deep Fried Turkey

10 gal Peanut oil
10 lb Turkey; up to 15 lbs
6 ts Salt
6 ts Paprika
6 ts White pepper
6 ts Cayenne
6 ts Accent; opt
16 oz Liquid crab oil concentrate

NOTE-Not recommended for indoor cooking. Rinse turkey
inside and out. Mix 1 part crab boil concentrate to 4
parts water. Combine dry ingredients with crab boil
solution. Adjust seasoning to taste. Inject turkey
(approximately 2" apart) with mixture using syringe
(available from gourmet kitchen stores.) Cover turkey
with foil and refrigerate over night. Heat oil to
350~. CAUTION: Use a grease thermometer to monitor the
oil. It may ignite if the temperature goes beyond
375~. Put turkey in basket and CAREFULLY lower it into
the pot. Cook 5 minutes per pound. Check in 1 hour
using a meat thermometer. NOTE-This is a great dish,
but should only be attempted by someone who has
experience with doing this. It is also expensive due
to the large amount of oil needed.
