Deep Fry
« on: November 18, 2017, 11:03:02 AM »
So let's hear some of your deep fry recipes. Last year I did a deep fry turkey in peanut oil and injected it with a cajun butter (can't remember exactly) flavor injection. The turkey turned out great but I really didn't taste the cajun butter flavor and I used plenty of it. So what are some great deep fry recipes? What type of oil? Can you use a brine for deep fry or is that left best for the smoker? Injection or other flavors?

Thanks,

Tony

Well peanut oil is the way to go.  Not sure about the brine.  Did you inject and let marinate in fridge overnight?  I would keep it simple, inject, season (just a little salt and pepper), and stick in the fridge.  Take out in the morning and let it sit for a few hours to warm up, and then fry.

That may be why. I injected in the morning and deep fried early afternoon.  :tup:

Yep brine first before deep fry.

Dissolve 3/4 lb kosher salt and 1 lb brown sugar in 2 quarts water over med heat. Add 4 quarts cold water to a gatorade cooler and add salt/sugar water. Add 2 onions, 1 bulb garlic, 2 sprigs rosemary, 5 sprigs thyme and about 10 black pepper corns. Add 2 lbs ice. Place turkey in cooler and brine for 5-6 hrs. Remove and let skin dry for at least 4 hours. Then melt 1/2 lb of unsalted butter and add 1 tbs crushed garlic and 1 tbs thyme leafs and inject into turkey meat. Create dry rub and rub bird. (Optional cold smoke for a few hours) Fry turkey for 3.5 min per pound in fryer at about 325.
