Turkey Deep Fry Safety Tips

Deep frying a turkey for Thanksgiving? Know the rules of safety so that you and your family can enjoy the feast.

1. Set up your deep fryer outside and at least 10' away from any object (ie: vehicles, house, garage, overhanging limbs, etc...) and out of the wind.

2. Test your connections on your deep fryer and propane tank for leaks by using a simple solution of soapy water.

3. Make sure your turkey is completely thawed and patted dry.

4. Keep a working fire extinguisher on hand and nearby in the event of an emergency.

5. Fill deep fryer with water, then insert turkey to determine fill line. Remove turkey, drain water, then fill fryer to water line with oil. Remember to dry your turkey off again.

6. Be sure to wear your PPE gear before placing turkey in oil. An apron, goggles and gloves (neoprene works best) are recommended.

7. Insert turkey slowly and gently into hot oil.

8. Use a thermometer to ensure correct temps when cooking.

9. Never leave fryer unattended.

10. When turkey is done, shut off burner and remove slowly, using a drip pan to capture any dripping oil.

11. Allow oil to cool and dispose of accordingly.

From all of us at SERVPRO of Derry/Londonderry, have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving!
