There are three safe ways to defrost a turkey: in the refrigerator, in cold water, and in the microwave oven. Refrigerate stuffing and turkey separately in shallow containers.
Use a fryer with thermostat controls to ensure the oil does not become overheated and monitor the temperature. The turkey should be 12 pounds or less in size. Select a safe location outdoors. Don't overheat the oil. Allow approximately three to five minutes of cooking time per pound. Fill the cavities loosely and cook the turkey right away. The stuffing should be moist, not dry since heat destroys bacteria more rapidly in a moist environment.
Dust the inside of the oven roasting bag with flour, then carefully place the turkey, on its rack, inside the bag, inside the roasting pan. The wishbone of a Turkey dates back 150 million years and connects them to the T-Rex and Velociraptor, like the ones in the Jurassic Park movies. There is ONE tool you won't want to be without; use a food thermometer to make sure your turkey reaches a minimum center internal temperature of 165 °F. To be safe, the temperature of a whole turkey should reach 180°F between the breast and the innermost part of the thigh. It takes too long to cook. Always wash cutting boards, dishes, utensils and countertops with hot, soapy water after preparing each food item and before going on to the next.
