Cook:

Yield:
12 servings

Ingredients
  • 1 (15-pound) turkey
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Garlic salt
  • Cajun seasoning
  • 3 to 4 gallons vegetable oil
  • Deep-fry thermometer
  • 26 to 40 quart large pot
  • High pressure outdoor propane cooker
Directions
  • Thaw turkey completely. Then clean out cavity, rinse and pat dry. Season turkey with dry ingredients, to taste (for more flavor, season the night before you cook.)

  • Heat oil in pot (allow enough room in pot for turkey to be placed, too much oil will cause overflow), bring oil to at least 375 degrees F. Placement of turkey will bring temperature down and you will want to keep temperature at 325 degrees F. while cooking. Cook turkey until golden brown, about 4 minutes per pound.
