Thanksgiving 2012: How to Deep-Fry a Turkey (Safely!)

In this how-to video on Patch, hear from a Florissant firefighter on how you can celebrate Turkey Day by safely deep-frying your Thanksgiving bird.

Thanksgiving 2012 is nearly here—are you ready? 

You have Thanksgiving recipes for stuffing, pumpkin pie and other sides already. Now comes the big decision: How should you prepare the turkey? 

If you decide to deep-fry your bird, please remember to do it safely. The highest rate of cooking fires in homes occurs on Thanksgiving Day, according to the U.S. Fire Administration.

Last year, we teamed up with the the Florissant Valley Fire Protection District to show you how to best deep-fry your turkey. See the attached video for those safety tips.
