Fried Turkey – Moist and flavorful fried turkey that cooks in the Waring Pro Rotisserie Turkey Fryer. It uses less oil than a regular turkey fryer.
- 10 – 12 pound whole turkey
- Brine (if desired)
- Cajun rub (your favorite)
- 2 1/2 gallons peanut or canola oil (approximately)
- Prepare the turkey. Remove the giblets and neck. Rinse thoroughly.
- Brine (if desired).
- Truss the turkey including tying up the wings and legs so it doesn’t impede the rotisserie spinning.
- Put the turkey on the rotisserie as recommended by the manual of the Waring Pro.
- Once the turkey is correctly trussed and on the rotisserie, put it into the basket. Spin to make sure it isn’t binding and can spin freely.
- Fill the Waring Pro with oil between the minimum and maximum fill lines. Only use high temperature oil as recommended by the manufacturer.
- Set the Waring Pro to 375 degrees.
- Put the lid on until it reaches the desired temperature. Putting foil between the basket and the lid may help it heat faster.
- Put the turkey on the ledge of the cooker and slowly lower it into the oil. It will only be partially submerged.
- Turn on the rotisserie and make sure that it is spinning correctly.
- Put on the lid and allow to cook.
- While it is cooking, monitor it to make sure it is spinning.
- The turkey should take about 3 to 3 1/2 minutes per pound. The turkey is done when it reaches a minimum of 165 degrees.
- When the turkey is done, raise and rest on the edge of the pan to drain.
- Remove the turkey, tent, and allow to rest about 20 minutes.
- Carve and serve on a platter.
- This recipe uses very hot oil that can cause harm. Please refer to the manufacturer to ensure that you are operating the cooker in the correct manner.
- Please make sure you have the proper fire extinguisher available in case you have an issue.
