Depeche Mode said it right... "Just Can't Get Enough"!
And for me that's DEEP FRIED TURKEY (DFT)!!!
For those you who may recall it was just 2 short months ago that our family experimented with this phenomenon for the first time at Thanksgiving. We decided to gather up the family again for round 2 and this time added some kick! I experimented with a Southern Style DFT recipe that required the "injection process" the night before, as well as a spicy dry rub (Is it just me or does that sentence sound a bit naughty?!?!) We had done the Traditional Style DFT recipe before. Here are the before pictures with the dry rub:
And after about an hour of cooking (17.5 lb. turkey) at 350 degrees...
Now, I know Trytophan can have a "sleepy" effect on people after eating turkey,
but what's their excuse, they didn't even have any?!?!
