This is our first year attending.....And we are so looking forward to it! What is this about a turkey fryer? Is it a competetion? And is it deep fried turkey?

And by the way..."Moi, aussi, j'aime chante pres du feu!!"

The great specialist in turkey fryer, at Emily, is Doug Roach. He will surely take a great pleasure to explain more. But, yes, Nicole, it's deep fried turkey....without competition.
Will be a great pleasure to meet you all.

Alistair, I'll have the same sparkling something to help you sing....

For Nicole & Tina...
One of the events at Emily is a pot-luck supper where any and all are invited to bring something to share with the brood. A couple of years ago, my ever-lovin' and I dragged our turkey fryer up from Miami and created a bit of a stir. Seems most folks there had never seen such a bizarre way to boil a bird. The really unfortunate thing was that there wasn't enough turkey to share with all two-hundred folks who were there.

Apparently our friend Raymond from Quebec now has brought this marvelous gastronomic technology to the northern climes and is offering to introduce it to more of our fellow Bolerites.
I'll certainly bring mine and anyone else that has a fryer is encouraged to pack it along. Perhaps some year after more and more folks imbibe in this most sublime epicurean delight, we'll finally have enough fryers and enough turkeys to share with everyone in the park.
Competitions are for kids... Raymond & I will simply be sharing the best bird you'll ever wrap your lips around.

Now about that strawberry bubbly, buddy..........

Hmmm... sounds good... I have a propane fryer.... what else is needed aside from the bird?

I may have to ok this with Luc though... he does the packing, I just organize in advance.

I am looking forward to this meet.

yup, I'm the one stopping you from bringing the "just in case" stuff.

the propane fryer is OK but you can forget about the lawn mower "just-in-case" the grass is too long ! LOL


Humm fried turkeys with a 5 gallons batch of gravy

People with diesel cars/truck will be able to drive their way back home burning all the resulting waste veggie oil (I miss my vw TDI)

Luc makes a good point about the oil. While we strain and save ours to use another day, it could just as well power certain vehicles all the way home from Emily. Anybody want my oil?

If you've got a fryer, Tina, all you need is a pot big enough to handle your turkey completely submerged in boiling oil, a lid for that, about an hour's worth of fuel, 4 or 5 gallons of some type of vegetable oil, an injector and some sort of marinade (this can be done the night before), a thermometer, some heavy gloves, and either a basket or chain/plate mechanism to get the bird into and more importantly, out of the oil.
You think Luc can find space for all that?

Here's a link to a site that has a pretty fair description of what's involved. (I don't recommend using peanut oil as this site advocates.) It's actually quite a simple procedure once the turkey is prepared. (Heck, if I can do it, it's GOTTA be simple.)

This is what our cooker looks like:


At 350 degrees, the gloves and extraordinary care are both required!


This shows our basket/lifter thing and the end result.


If you try this once, you'll always consider a turkey prepared any other way to be somewhat inferior.

Have at it!

(DANG! I shouldn't have pulled up that picture... now I'm drooling all over my keyboard!)

Doug, thanks for the pictures, I understand fully now. Thankfully I am full from supper...lol

Ok, so I have the whole get up like you described.. Luc had an idea of maybe we could make french fries.. being from Quebec and all.... (Homemade fries that is)

Anyhow, we`ll bring our fryer along and decide closer to then what we`ll place in it.

As for the recycled fuel... Luc has lots of friends who use used veggie oil in their cars... it will make for some interesting convos at the campfire.

Happy bolering all!

Actually, slicing up some baking potatos and some yams is what we usually do after the turkey is removed. The turkey needs to sit a bit after frying to finish cooking inside and that interval is perfect for doing up some vegetables. The veggies soak up a lot of the stuff that we'd have to skim out before putting the oil back in the jugs for use later and they're particularly tasty when done in "turkey oil".
Last time we were at Emily we also had a bag of fresh Vidalias we'd picked up in Geogia on the trip up and tried to do some "Blooming Onions" like that Aussie steakhouse does. Unfortunately, the batter we tried just gooed up the oil and they were kind of a bust. Next time: no batter!
You live and learn.

I have made these and with the batter I use they come out well.... I will pack the ingredients to make it.

So I will also bring our potato french fry maker for industrial portions... and we`ll likely use our fryer along with some salads for the potluck. (gotta have something aside from grease... )

Now to brainstorm ideas for the retro decor. We still have a few items to change on the Boler before then... new curtains and stainless steel backsplash and fridge plate. The snow is almost gone now and we are already wanting to take the boler out... problem is the back yard may still be too soft to try to get it out this early.

Anyone else getting the camping bug?
