Fried Turkey or Ham
Heat oil to 400ºF. Now
slowly lower the turkey or ham into the oil. Be very
careful for the oil will try to boil over if done too fast.
When the temperature drops to 350ºF., hold that
temperature to a constant 350ºF. You will need a
thermometer for the heat is very critical.
The rule of thumb is 3.5 minutes per pound. The turkey
needs to be thawed, but if it is thawed and very cold I
allow 4 minutes per pound. Just watch the turkey very
carefully and do not allow it to burn. Nothing is any
worse than a burnt turkey at meal-time. Overall time for
a 20 pound turkey will be from 1 hr. 10 minutes to 1 hr. 20
A GOOD MARINADE FROM "THE HOUSE OF SPICES"
1-pint of the same oil used to cook the turkey
Satan's Breath® Vindaloo
1 to 2 T.
Satan's Breath® Cajun Blend
2-T Satan's Breath® Jalapeno Garlic
Satan's Breath® Breader & Hushpuppy Mix
Bring oil temp up to almost a boil on the top of the stove and
whisk in the
in the spices. Cut off the heat and let the spices steep
for 20 minutes.
When cool enough put in your meat syringe and inject the
all parts and rub the inside of the cavity heavy. Let
the turkey sit in the refrigerator until ready to cook.
I leave mine in over night. When the oil is hot and
ready to cook, take the turkey out, shoot a little more
juice in it, rub the cavity again. I dust it after
rubbing the oil on the second time with a little Satan's
Breath® Hush Puppy & Breader Mix inside and out.
It adds to the spicy taste and the crunch.
