Oil-less Fryer versus Oil Deep Fryer for Bird Day
 
Picked up an oil-less fryer this past weekend and snapped it in with a 6 lb chicken....it was great!

For the last 6 years I've deep fried my turkey in peanut oil and loved it every time.

If I had to choose one this turkey day, which should it be?
Any horror stories? Or good stories/techniques to share?

Thanks

(Disclaimer: I'm doing both anyways)

My goodness. Deep-fried turkey is blaspheme.

Orangejello727 11-08-2012 07:23 PM

how does an oil less fryer work? What do you use to fry the bird if its not oil?

get this...a mesh lid also....:eek:
I had my doubts as well.

Its literally propane just like a normal deep fryer with a ring of fire inside the bucket instead of a flame on the outside heating the oil.

The flame is between the bucket and the outer shell.

It gets so freakin hot...ridiculous.

I'd say oil is 3 minutes per lb....the oil-less was closer to 10 min per lb.

The cleanup was near nonexistent though, just the cleaning of drippings.

You must speak from naivety. Fried in peanut oil can be beat by nothing.

can you burn your house down with the oil-less one?

I am a bit of a safety nut and follow the manufacturer directions.

This thing should be treated like a deep fryer. Anytime I kick on the propane I do it outdoors. Also as a suggestion..
Keep your animals away from it.

It looks not hot..but it is!

I'm sure people will find a way to burn down anything with it but I would say that it is highly unlikely.

Some dumbos think they can fry a turkey in their kitchen....disaster!

I need to get a turkey fryer. Has the price of peanut oil come down? A few years ago it had tripled in cost.

I have a deep fryer and done some turkeys. I have smoked our Thanksgiving turkeys the last few years. I would really appreciate it if you could snap some pics and show your oil-less deep fryer in action the next time you use it. Thanks.

yup!

It's very expensive.

Once a year I'll splurge and dunk 3-4 birds.

No complaints with oil-less so far. Only use a bit more propane.

With the oil-less fryer does that also mean less calories then the oil deep fryer? I assume so

[QUOTE=imbaked247;3616125]With the oil-less fryer does that also mean less calories then the oil deep fryer? I assume so[/QUOTE]

definitely.

its a dry, convection, infrared type heat.

zaps the bird to a crisp without the mess and added calories.
Of course you don't get the peanut oil flavor, but the natural chicken/turkey flavor with a good seasoning job and you're all set.

I recommend trying it...can do any kind of meat. Trying another chicken tomorrow and maybe some beef..I'll take a few pics.

Frying a turkey for Thanksgiving!?!?

I'm way too old-fashioned for that!

If you are old fashioned then frying is the way to go. That is the only way I knew as a kid in the south. Cooks fast. Can cook 4-5 birds before lunchtime if you start at daybreak.

Must use peanut oil. I checked Sam's Club on Friday. 35 pounds cost $39.99. Tripled in price over the past 7-8 years.

I didn't expect to make anyone laugh. Have you calmed down yet?

Explained: Deep-fired turkey is traditional in many places. Though some had never heard of it until the early 2000s when Martha Stinkbag made a big deal about it.

I have never, ever heard of anyone deep-frying a turkey for Thanksgiving...it's not something us New Englander's do...

ntgm37 11-11-2012 10:03 PM

It's pretty common everywhere...did it it Florida, Arizona, California, Montana, and now Wyoming. Everyone i have met on these states have heard of it.

I have heard of doing it...but not for an old fashioned, home cooked Thanksgiving meal. I mean come on...a deep-fryer has no place in the kitchen on Thanksgiving!!! :)! C'mon people! :D

darealstunna 11-12-2012 05:58 AM

Born and raised in Brooklyn NY 18 years...never did it. Really was never an option so I know what Bostons talking about.

I'm 33 now..been living in the south for 12 put of the last 15 year (3 in Cali) and out of the 12 in the south deep fry has ruled. Now I know why. Totally awesome
This oil-less is starting to grow on me though.

mikestrick 11-12-2012 08:11 PM

Used to fry a turkey every Thanksgiving and Christmas. But now Peanut Oil is so damn expensive. Have a propane pig cooker and that's what I use now. Brine they turkey overnight and grill that sucker up and it's moist and delicious.

chicken looks awesome...always wanted to try and deep fry a turkey just heard too many horror stories about it, so I'm afraid to try.

Dude you have to toss your hat in the ring and go for it.

You will not be disappointed.

Just YouTube a few vids and you're set.

It's superhard to burn the bird...but super easy (if you're not careful) to hurt yourself, a pet, kid, property, etc.

No time like the present!
