A Deep-Fried Turkey Is A Heavenly Bird! Have A Deep-Fried Thanksgiving!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Texas had the highest number of Thanksgiving cooking-related fire claims from 2007 through 2011 as deep-frying turkey led to more accidental blazes, State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Co. said."


Business Week

Southerners, not just Texans, deep-fry everything from okra to chicken to Twinkies to roadkill to turkeys.

We are of the opinion that everything tastes better if it`s fried, even tofu or yogurt might be palatable if it`s deep-fried.

Tasting a deep-fried turkey should be on your bucket list, it`s not Thanksgiving if the bird on your table wasn`t deep-fried.

A few cooking-related fires are a small price to pay for the privilege and joy of gobbling on a deep-fried gobbler.

Deep fry your turkey this year, but exercise a bit of common sense and don`t set up your deep-fryer in the living room.

Happy Thanksgiving to all my readers!
