How To Fry a Turkey


Get your marinades & spices ready

Preparing your ingredients prior to frying a turkey can save a lot of time. You'll need to make sure you've prepared the right marinades and spices for the turkey. Academy Sports + Outdoors carries a great selection of popular turkey frying prep items such as marinades, spices, frying oil, trays and dishes, and turkey frying equipment.


Prep your fryer

Deep-Fry your turkey outside. If using an electric fryer, you may be able to fry indoors. Please refer to the manufacturer's instructions. Make sure you're far away from homes, garages, wooden decks, and anything else flammable in a dry and ventilated area.
It is important to set the gas burner on a level surface so that the fryer doesn't tip over. Keep the propane tank as far away from the fryer as possible, and also make sure it does not become a trip hazard.
To determine how much oil is needed for frying, place the thawed turkey in the fryer basket and place it on the fryer. Add water until the top of the turkey is barely covered. Remove the turkey, allowing the water to drain from the turkey back into the fryer. Measure and mark the line, and use that line as a guide when adding oil to the propane fryer. The level should be at least 5-inches below the rim.


Prep your bird

There are a variety of spices and marinades available for your turkey available online and in-store. Marinade your turkey prior to frying.
Dry the turkey thoroughly afterward with paper towels and prepare your turkey with the spices and marinades of your choice. Make sure your turkey is completely dry before frying to avoid fire hazards.


Fry it!

Cook the turkey 3-4 minutes per pound. Once the turkey begins to float to the top of the oil-fry for 15 additional minutes. Remove the turkey and place on a clean platter. Turn off the flame and let the oil completely cool making sure it's away from any potential trip hazards.
