United States, Louisiana, Baton Rouge - 11/05/2019 (PRDistribution.com)
Though holiday meals traditionally involve a variety of foods, there’s one dish more and more Americans can’t wait to gobble up this time of year.
Frying turkey has become a wildly popular trend over the past few decades because it produces moist and tender results much quicker than a traditional oven-roast. Additionally, many people inject their turkeys with marinades to bring out even more delicious flavors for the holiday feast.
But there is considerable risk for this winged reward, which when cooked without caution is the cause of many home fires nationwide. That’s why BBQGuys has put together a Turkey Frying Safety guide in advance of the holidays to help home chefs everywhere avoid the hazards of cooking with hot oil.
“Frying a turkey can be dangerous, but you need to follow just a few easy steps to do it right,” said Randy Watson, Grill Master at BBQGuys. “Even if you’ve successfully fried a turkey before, it’s important that you read these safety guidelines to protect your family this holiday season.”
According to a 2018 home cooking fires study published by the National Fire Protection Association, Thanksgiving is the peak day for such incidents by an overwhelming margin. Reported deep fryer fires resulted in an average of nearly $16.5 million in property damage each year from 2012–16, causing several deaths and dozens of injuries in the process.
BBQGuys hopes to help home cooks reduce those numbers in the coming years so they can have safe and happy celebrations without giving up the tasty fried turkey we all love so much.
