Tips for frying your Thanksgiving turkey
SERVPRO knows that the turkey is the most important part of the Thanksgiving meal. It is the centerpiece that brings the rest of the dinner together. And while we all agree that fried turkey is amazing, injuring yourself or damaging property isn't. Here are a few tips to help keep you safe while preparing that deep fried bird.
- Find a flat area: This helps keep the pot from tipping over and helps keep the oil level even when cooking
- Use proper tools: Take the turkey in and out of the oil with gloves and the lifter tool
- Be Prepared! Have a fire extinguisher ready at all times!
If you do experience fire or smoke damage while cooking the Thanksgiving feast, call SERVPRO of Leavenworth and NW Wyandotte County, the fire cleanup professionals.
