Thanksgiving Dinner – I know, it doesn’t fall on a Sunday

This year, try something different for your Thanksgiving turkey.  Deep fry it.  This process has been popular for abut 20 years, and if you have not given it a try, do it this year.  The precautions are VERY important.  Every year several houses and apartment complexes are burned-down while frying turkeys.  This notice is not intended to stop you from enjoying this technique, only to beg you to follow the basic safety measures explicitly.
