Each Thanksgiving, we anticipate a perfectly cooked turkey waiting on the dinner table like so many cooking shows, magazines and television commercials promise. Unfortunately, many of us do not have the cooking talents of a celebrity chef – or their support team. That’s why many of us turn to deep-frying our turkeys. With a turkey fryer, what used to take several hours now takes about 45 minutes. However, we must ask ourselves if we’re willing to trade safety for convenience.
