Now, if youve never sunk your teeth into this , you dont know what you are missing !!! ( and you need a turkey cooker for this lol )

My wife mixes the spices ( her secret lol ) etc.. up in melted butter then a trick she learned to ' help ' keep the oil from getting to dirty   from the spices coming out. She will pull the skin back and shoot the spices with a needle into the MEAT. not through the skin !! ( the breast, legs, thighs etc.. )

Then with about 3 gallons of peanut oil heated up to about 325 ( maybe a little higher to start with cause the turkey will bring the temp way down ) Yes, you need a thermometer to know what the temps are .... Put the bird in with breast down or angled down . You will have to play with the fire to ' jack ' it way up to try to get to 325 .  Then cook it for about 4 minutes a pounds .. ( sometimes I will give it an extra 5 mins or so if I wasnt able to get the temp to where I wanted.. Sometimes it is harder if the wind is catching the fire to get the desire temps. )

Also, make sure you are away from the house and use extreme caution while messing with HOT OIL and FIRE.
