You know what is really awesome about this.......besides having your families together to give thanks, is that when you make that "special turkey"...it is remembered forever....7 of my 9 grandkids will be there for Thanksgiving. (plus my 3 of my 4 kids).......however I make that deep fried turkey, it will go down as "grandpa's" turkey and when I am long gone, they will remember it and hopefully trying to make one like grandpa used to make. Whether you use butter and garlic (like I do), or add cajun flavoring, mesquite, or whatever.........it will be remembered for Thanksgiving Day.

The alcohol will cook off, leaving just the taste. Any time you actually cook something you put alcohol in, if it is cooked very long after the alcohol is added, the alcohol evaporates.

Most any food you inject or marinate with Jack Daniels will "take" the flavor. I've never tried Jack Daniels in turkey, so I don't know about the combination. However, it does taste fine in chicken.

Wow......this is going to be a Thanksgiving to remember. My youngest grandson (red head, like his mom) just turned 1.....so maybe he will remember this Thanksgiving. I know grandpa will......... Can we skip Thanksgiving and get straight to the cold turkey sandwiches and college football on TV???? LOL. I hope everyone have a wonderful Thanksgiving......we all have so much to be thankful for.

To help prevent hot oil overflow...put turkey in fryer, fill with water, covering turkey by 2". Remove turkey and mark the water line. Empty (and dry), then add oil up to the marked line.

Insulated hand mitts are helpful when removing the turkey from the hot oil.

. Sounds like you speak from experience. Good advice. But really complicated for my simple mind. LOL. Hope you have a great Thanksgiving, Julie. Same to Don, Steve and Charlie if you see them.

I will let you know.....my mouth is watering...........(oh, the cold turkey sandwiches with Miracle whip and cheese........mmmmmmmmmmmm)
Oh man! The sandwiches from leftovers are the BEST part! Jim
