Also make sure you dont over fill the oil if you are frying it, and be sure to get the giblet pack out also.

Yes Sir. I have one of those indoor friers so it doesn't have a flame on it.

Modified Alton Brown Procedure...

Ingredients
1 (14 to 16 pound) frozen young turkey
For the brine:

1 cup kosher salt
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 gallon vegetable stock
1 tablespoon black peppercorns
1 gallon heavily iced water

2 to 3 days before roasting:

Begin thawing the turkey in the refrigerator or in a cooler kept at 38 degrees F.

Combine the vegetable stock, salt, brown sugar, peppercorns in a large stockpot over medium-high heat. Stir occasionally to dissolve solids and bring to a boil. Then remove the brine from the heat, cool to room temperature, and refrigerate.

Early on the day or the night before you'd like to eat:

Combine the brine, water and ice in the 5-gallon bucket. Place the thawed turkey (with innards removed) breast side down in brine. If necessary, weigh down the bird to ensure it is fully immersed, cover, and refrigerate or set in cool area for 8 to 16 hours, turning the bird once half way through brining.

Toss that (oops..lower gently) in some 350 degree lard or peanut oil...and get ready to be amazed!

...oh yeah! the brine does the osmosis thing...pushes (or pulls...can't remember) the sweet and non-salty liquid into the turkey...

...my 15 lb birds will gain a couple of pounds in 30 hours...

dry off the outside! wet bird and hot oil...while fun to watch is not fun to extinguish!

Nothing wrong with cheating...you can "change" that water every couple hours to hasten the process.

Ok, I think I'm good. I'll run some water tomorrow an hour or so before and check it then.

Thanks man. I'll say that's the best bird I've ever done. No injection just a dry rub of salt, pepper, garlic, and creole. I checked the breast temp after 49 minutes and put it back in for another 6.

Actually the pie recipe is on the back of the "Libby's" pumpkin. Get the large can and make two pies.

The hard part is the crust...so here is the easiest crust recipe ever. Measurements are critical be exact!!!!

2 Cups "All Purpose Flour"
1/2 Cup Wesson Vegetable Oil
3 Tablespoons Water

Forget what you have seen or heard about pie crust this is very easy, but not what you have seen done before.

Flour in the mixing bowl. Add oil all at once. Use a butter knife to mix/ stir together, use a cutting type motion to do this. Once it is "crumbly" add the water. (neither hot or cold tap water is fine)

The crust will be a little sticky so place on sheet of wax paper (or use a dough board) down on flat surface. put your ball of pie crust in center cover with a second sheet of wax paper. Roll out pie crust between the wax paper. make it bigger than pie pan.
Gently lift top layer of wax paper from crust. Invert pie crust on to pie pan, allow the weight of crust to let it fall into pie pan while peeling away second piece of wax paper. (or dough board) leave set while mixing filling. your done.

I also use this same crust for Apple, Pecan, Cherry, Lemon, and Cream Pies.

And "home made" Pot pies, for homemade pot pies leftovers from Roast potatoes and carrots and a cup or so of frozen peas..use the broth from the Roast potatoes and carrots for a gravy in the pot pie...I add "sweet Baby Rays BBQ sauce to help the gravy out a little.....wonder why we keep getting fatter around here?
