Just in time for Thanksgiving, the Austin Fire Department did a demonstration on how not to fry a turkey.
In the video, you can see just how quickly a mistake can trigger an inferno.
Here are a few tips:
- Don't fill your fryer to the top; leave room for the turkey so oil doesn't spill over.
- Don't put a frozen turkey in hot oil; make sure it's completely thawed.
- And definitely cook it outside
