To prepare the deep fried Thanksgiving Turkey Recipe you will need 4 to 5 gallons of vegetable or peanut oil, 1 whole turkey, and cayenne pepper. You will also need a very large pot preferably a 10-gallon pot and a propane cooker. Before you begin, set your propane flame to 390 degrees Fahrenheit. Pour the oil into the pan and begin to heat.

When the oil is at 390 degrees Fahrenheit, pat dry your turkey to ensure that it is dry and sprinkle with the cayenne pepper. Place in the basket and lower it down into the oil. If you do not have a basket, insert a long cooking fork into the cavity of the turkey and lower into the oil. Do not allow the oil to drop below 390 degrees Fahrenheit. Check the turkey around every 15 minutes and change its position in the oil. The approximate cooking time is 3 to 4 minutes per pound.
