I don't cook much but I do get behind the BBQ from time to time. For the Easter long weekend, I put a turkey on the BBQ and invited a few friends over. The BBQ turkey takes about half the time to cook on the BBQ than it does in the conventional oven and the turkey is always super moist. I usually just rub the bird with some butter, garlic, salt and pepper and place it in a pan with chicken stock, carrots and celery. This 15 pounder only took two and a half hours.

I really want to try the deep fried turkey but I am scared that I will burn my place down. Apparently, there are a large number of house fires in the USA every year caused by deep frying turkeys and poor measurement of the oil and placing in a unthawed bird in the oil.

We did that one year while camping. I suggest trying it outside and not indoors. Just make sure you have large oven mitts when you put the turkey in the oil as it will bubble and splatter A LOT!
