How to Deep Fry a Turkey : Tying the Legs For Cajun Deep Fried Turkey

Uploaded by expertvillage on 09.11.2007

This is David for We are in the process of deep frying a turkey, the
Cajun way and right now we are ready to tie the legs together so this will literally fall
off the bone. So you do need to have the legs cut, so get regular kitchen twine; that is
all you really need. Nothing with plastic in it or like that will melt. So I just cotton
twine is fine. So cut off the length of it and what I like to do is tie one of the legs
just around like so and wrap it and then you can get the other leg and wrap it around and
through. It doesn’t matter how many times you do this but I would recommend at least
4 or 5 because it will go into this oil for about 40 minutes. Once you get that all tied
together, like so and cut off any excess if you like and you are ready to use the coat
hanger. Now this is probably what you were wondering about earlier. You just want to
get your regular coat hanger and this will serve as your holder that you are going to
put your turkey in the oil. So what you do is run it through the neck cavity, like so
and pull it through and then right under the wire, so use as a handy little holder you
can have to drop into your oils very slowly.
