Deep-Fry Your Turkey Outdoors to Avoid Fire Damage this Thanksgiving in Exton, PA

If your turkey does cause trouble, call ServiceMaster Professional Cleaning and Restoration for Fire Damage Restoration Services.

The turkey is usually considered the main focus of the Thanksgiving feast. You’ll probably use a special family recipe for the stuffing. Family members may have a heated debate about their preferences for white or dark meat. The chef or chefs in your family have probably already discussed how to prepare the turkey. A popular and potentially dangerous method is deep-frying. Because danger still lurks no matter how you prepare the turkey, the friendly staff at ServiceMaster Professional Cleaning and Restoration offer these suggestions for preventing fire damage in Exton, PA as you celebrate Thanksgiving with your loved ones.

A deep-fryer designed for outdoor use should NEVER be used indoors. Take great care and be alert when deep-frying your turkey to avoid unwanted fire damage. Fryers designed for indoor or outdoor use contain hot oil that can cause fire damage from grease fires if not handled carefully. We recommend that you lower and raise the turkey slowly to prevent splattering oil or tipping over the fryer. We also advise keeping the fryer under constant supervision. It should never be left unattended while in use. Do not fill the oil past the maximum fill line. Allow it to preheat properly, and always follow the instructions included with the fryer.

To successfully deep-fry a turkey outdoors, please make sure that you have taken every necessary precaution. The deep-fryer should be set up on a flat surface. It should be a safe distance away from any structures like the house, porch, or garage. The turkey itself should be either fresh or completely thawed. You can pat the bird with paper towels to remove excess moisture. Before you begin to cook the turkey, make sure the fryer is prepared. A standard fryer works well with turkeys that are 14 pounds or lighter. A turkey that is 15 pounds or heavier should be deep-fried in a larger fryer, or separated into legs, thighs, and breast before deep-frying in a standard fryer.
