Deep-fried wild turkey

Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient
1 each Wild turkey, whole, dressed
2½ gallon Peanut oil
1 cup Italian salad dressing
½ cup Lemon juice, fresh
3 tablespoons Onion juice
3 tablespoons Garlic juice
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon Liquid smoke
1⅓ ounce Cayenne
¼ cup Salt

Mix all ingredients except turkey, pot and peanut oil to make a marinade. Let stand overnight in refrigerator. Use meat injecting needle to inject all through turkey. Put turkey and marinade in a large plastic bag and keep in the refrigerator for 1 to 3 days.

Remove in time to bring to room temp before cooking. Heat oil in a 40-60 quart pot to 325 degrees (Use candy thermometer). Immerse turkey completely and cook for 4 minutes per pound. Place a pie tin with holes in the bottom in the bottom of the deep fryer to prevent sticking. This is supposed to be a red-hot favorite. Try one. Recipe date: 12/23/87
