Highland INC is frying a turkey dangerous and tips on how to

1. Wear Protective Gear

When deep frying a turkey, oil splattering is almost unavoidable. The moment you try to put the turkey into the deep fryer, some oil will spill out. If you are not careful, the oil could cause significant burns on your body. Anytime you want to fry a turkey, ensure that you put on the right protective gear in case of any splatters. Safety glasses will also help to protect your eyes from splashing oil.

2. Do Not Deep Fry Indoors

Deep-frying turkey in enclosed rooms is a common mistake. It is extremely dangerous to do it indoors. The best place to prepare the turkey is in an open space. Additionally, ensure you avoid setting up the fryer near garages or any other areas with highly flammable things.

3. Avoid Deep Frying a Frozen Turkey

Oil and water do not mix at all. If you put a frozen turkey into hot oil, you risk burning yourself. Ensure that the turkey is completely dry before letting it into the oil. Don’t let your oil get too hot lest it catches fire. Always have a fire extinguisher nearby to put out the fire in case it breaks out.

Following these simple tips will assure you of not only a delicious turkey but safety for you and your loved ones.
