Deep Fried Turkey Safety Tips

Posted on November 24, 2015

If you plan on deep frying a turkey latter this week remember to be safe. If you do have a greese fire remember these safety tips

  • Leave the area and call 911
  • Only if it can be done safely, turn off the heat source (i.e. the burner) if possible
  • Only if it can be done safely, cover the fire. Keep a pan lid handy when cooking with oil or grease and slide it over the pan to cut off the oxygen. If a pan lid isn’t available, soak a towel and ring out the excess water, placing the towel over the pan 
  • Only if it can be done safely, once covered, slide the pan off the heat source if possible. Don’t attempt if there is a chance the pan could tip
  • Do NOT put water on it, water will create a fire
