I have been frying turkeys for about 10 years now! In my opinion its the only way to go, but been thinking about trying a brined turkey (one of each most likely). Just curious how the rest of my Brothers roll!

I'd love to do another Turducken, but it will be a traditional stuffed and roasted bird this year.

I chose smoked because that is my favorite. I do two every year though... one roasted and one smoked.

I am a big fan of fried turkey, but there is something about a traditional roast bird for Thanksgiving.

We roast.
Last year brined and roasted, came out great.
We don't have a deep frier but my father in law deep fries... But he brines it first. Very tasty.


So I would say, brine & fry one, then if you want to, brine & roast the other.

Sorry I'm stupid, but what the heck is a brined turkey. I assume it has something to do with salt.

Had fried for the first time last year and enjoyed it. However, I am a biscuits, stuffing, and gravy person, not that excited about the turkey, so prefer the roasted. Stove top dressing, along with store bought gravy does not get me salivating like a roasted turkey with all the fix'ns.

Heck your not stupid! Basically soaking a turkey in a salt/water/sugar for a good amount of time. Here is the link for the other thread I started.

We've been doing it the way it's been done for generation after generation...the Traditional way. That said, I think it would be great to try it smoked or deep fried.

I prefer smoked, I'd love to try brined and fried but I usually end up with my mom's roasted, overcooked version. She hasn't yet figured out to this day how to reverse engineer a cooking schedule or learned what hold time is. I'm trying.

Coy, come out for a herf and bring a fryer.
