Even though I'm safety-minded, I would never use this again

By 

from USA

Comments about Bayou Classic 30-Quart Outdoor Turkey Fryer Kit:

See my review for the butterball electric turkey fryer for what I replaced this with. My wife got me this about 10 years ago as a Christmas present. I used it 3 or 4 times to fry up delicious turkey, but I always had the fear that the aerosolized peanut oil at flashpoint could go up in flames at the drop of a hat. You always hear the news stories about some redneck who burns his house down on TG day due to these things. I was always extremely careful when using it, but it's just an antiquated way of frying a turkey. Propane? Open flame? seriously??

To seal the deal, the aluminum pot that came with it developed a pinhole leak on TG day a few years back - a blessing in disguise - I trashed the rest of it and got the butterball unit at walmart and never looked back. I just don't get why these things still sell so well, given the price is very close to the electric units. Both do the exact same thing, the electric just does it better at a much safer and precise level.

Thanksgiving wouldn't be the same without my turkey fryer

By 

from Bellevue, NE

Comments about Bayou Classic 30-Quart Outdoor Turkey Fryer Kit:

I was never a big fan of turkey meat until I bought my Bayou turkey fryer.  Instead of the dry, chewy turkey meat I was used to, this turkey meat was moist and tender.  I've gotten more compliments on my turkeys than anything else I've ever made. 

Normally, I buy a fifteen pound turkey.  I inject Tony Chachere's Creole Butter marinade all over.  I place it in the deep fryer and cook it according to the instructions per pound.  (I typically use peanut oil.)  The deep fryer cooks it perfectly every single time!  The instant heat from the oil locks in all that delicious moisture making the turkey incredibly tender.

And instead of having to cook it for hours in the oven, it's done in minutes with the deep fryer.  It definitely makes the cooking process go by faster and it keeps the kitchen cooler.

After cooking our turkey like this for years, I won't eat it any other way.  I've even started to get requests to make deep fried turkey for friends and family.

The only downfall to this deep fryer is that it makes such good turkey that you are hard pressed to find leftovers.

The best turkey to make for Thanksgiving

By 

from weston, WI

Comments about Bayou Classic 30-Quart Outdoor Turkey Fryer Kit:

*We had always the same turkey every year and we wanted a change.  So we went out and bought the fryer and the oil.  It was the best turkey that we have had in a long time.  The best part of it is that you don't have to worry about the big mess to clean up. I think that it would be hard to go to a normal turkey ever again.  The outside of the turkey is very crispy and the inside is very juicey and the trick to that is make sure that you inject it with anything that you like.  For instence you can just do butter which is what we did or you can use any kind of liquid seasoning and inject it and then just put it in the fryer and let it cook away.  *

 

*You have to make sure that you watch it and don't leave it unattended.  Make sure that you use the thermomter that comes with it.  You will have to ajust the tempature more when the turkey is about done. We had noticed that when we wher cooking it.*

This thing rocks!

By 

from Huntsville, OH

Comments about Bayou Classic 30-Quart Outdoor Turkey Fryer Kit:

My dad has had one of these for a few years now. I recieved this turkey fryer from my parents as a christmas gift. We cooked our first turkey in it two days later! We did a 16 pounder in it, I think 16 or 17lbs is the maximum weight. We didnt season it or anything. Just a plain old fresh turkey. YUMMMM its was awsome! Its a little work to get this thing going and clean up but it is well worth the hastle! We had some trouble getting it going beacause it was VERY cold outside and  windy. Had trouble keeping our flame.Please, Please, Please make sure your turkey is not frozen! It could and will blow up if you put a frozen turkey in hot oil! Be safe! You can do all sorts of things in this fryer. It even comes with a steammer kit to do clams in oysters. I cant wait to try other recipes with this fryer! Great Buy, Glad I got one finally.

I fried a 10lb turkey in this bad boy-Bayou Classic Turkey Fryer

By 

from Ypsilanti, MI

Comments about Bayou Classic 30-Quart Outdoor Turkey Fryer Kit:

With the Bayou Classic Turkey Fryer you can count on your turkey coming out with a nice even crust and so juicy and tender that you're friends will be talking about this one for a long time to come. You bird will also cook evenly (no bloody meat). There are unlimited possibilities with this. Donuts, seafood, vegetables, fries, corndogs, and my favorite- deep fried rabbit, and it's so easy to clean. I need my cook ware to be tough because I do alot of cooking, and I need to be able to cook alot of food at one time. The Bayou Classic Turkey FrIyer allows me to do just that. I own a catering business which requires me to cook food in mass quantities. I can fit a whole turkey in it at once or cut up and it helps me get the job done on time. I am so glad that I purchased this for my business as this is the most used fryer in my shop.

The best turkey I have ever tasted was deep fried.

By 

from Lufkin, TX

Comments about Bayou Classic 30-Quart Outdoor Turkey Fryer Kit:

For years I baked my turkey and made my dressing. It was good but I got to the point i didn't like turkey anymore.  I kept hearing people talk about fried turkey so I desided to try my hand at it.

This Thanksgiving I deep 2 turkeys in the Bayou Classic Turkey Fryer. It was the best turkey I ever tasted. I had 30 people over for Thanksgiving and there wasn't a bite of turkey left.

I do believe I have started a new tradition at my house. Use the Bayou Classic Turkey Fryer and deep fry your your turkey just once and you won't go back to baking  that bird again.

It is easy to use, just follow directions and safty precautions and you will become a pro at it in no time.

Great for fish fries too!!

By 

from Rice Lake, WI

Comments about Bayou Classic 30-Quart Outdoor Turkey Fryer Kit:

We use our "turkey" deepfryer for fish fries too!  When we have big get togethers for fish or even cooking a huge batch of french fries for a group this works wonderful!  We've even used it to cook corn on the cob!
