The 2017 year is coming to a close; both Thanksgiving and Christmas are nearly upon us. This means friends, family, vacations, food, and gifts become the norm, and due to the high volume of meals being shared, we thought it would be good to address a certain American pastime: Cooking turkey in a fryer. Many great deep-fried turkey safety tip videos have already been produced, and so we thought we would support those great videos with an epic infographic.
According to the National Fire Protection Association, in the United States, deep frying a turkey is the result of more than $15 million in property damage each year. Most of the damage occurs around the Thanksgiving holiday – making early November a prime time to be reminded on how to safely deep fry a turkey. Being a game company, we, of course, made this safety reminder fun. We hope you enjoy it and have a safe holiday season.

How to Deep Fry a Turkey Safely:
- Always thaw the turkey first. This doesn’t mean partially thaw it – leaving little ice. This means to remove all ice and ensure the bird is fully thawed.
- Always place the turkey in the fryer first and then add oil. This will ensure you don’t overfill the deep fryer.
- Always place the deep fryer outside, on a flat surface, safely away from your house. This way if a fire does happen, it’s safely away from you. The only exception to this rule is if you purchased an indoor electric fryer.
- Don’t lose track of time. Check the fryer regularly to ensure it is working properly and that the bird will make a pleasant meal later.
- If a fire occurs, use baking soda or a class B Dry Chemical Fire Extinguisher. If it gets too big, call the fire department.
- After cooking, don’t try to cool the fryer with ice. It will cause a fire. Let it cool on its own timeline.
