Dramatic footage shows what not to do when frying a turkey this Thanksgiving
Deep-fry fires from cooking turkeys cause around 60 injuries and $15 million in damages every year, according to this In The Know video.
There are specific steps you can take to avoid any unnecessary chaos this Thanksgiving. For instance, allow your turkey to fully thaw before frying — because putting a frozen turkey into hot oil could cause the oil to bubble over and into the flames.
Another tip that may seem like a no-brainer but could prevent a lot of house fires is to fry your turkey away from your home. Outside and in dry weather are the ideal conditions to fry.
