When it comes to frying turkeys, you need to remember one thing; DO NOT PUT A FROZEN TURKEY IN THE FRYER. According to the U.S. Fire Administration (USFA), about 4,300 house fires are started on Thanksgiving every year, accounting for 15 deaths and almost $27 million in property damage, many of them due to deep fried turkey accidents. Every year my family likes to fry a couple of turkeys in our turkey fryer. We do it outside on the driveway to make sure that if something goes wrong we are safe because the fryer is on a concrete driveway. While it is summer time and there is plenty of time to plan for Thanksgiving we at SERVPRO of Katy/Cypress and Champions/1960 want to give you a friendly reminder to deep fry turkeys that are thawed and do it on your driveway.
