Thanksgiving turkey fryer safety tips from UNL Extension

November 23, 2018

OMAHA - For those who have never tasted a deep fried turkey have no idea what they are missing.

With that, University of Nebraska - Lincoln Extension Educator Alice Henneman says be smart about using fryers so your holiday doesn’t turn into a disaster.

Henneman says use the recommended oil and the turkey must be thawed and patted dry before emerging it in the oil.

Henneman says read and re-read the manufacturer’s instructions.

She says the recommended size is no larger than 12 pounds and make sure it is completely thawed before emerging it in oil.

Use it in a driveway or other safe surface in case of a spill.

Her biggest tip is to have a working fire extinguisher handy, just in case.
