  3. Get good equipment.  A stable fryer that is big enough to hold your big is sufficient.
  4. Dress Appropriately! No flip-flops or open shoes.  Be sure to be covered up enough that grease cannot spill onto your bare skin.
  5. Wear over mitts or gloves while deep-frying.
  6. Make sure your bird is completely thawed! An unthawed turkey is a sure why to a huge fireball because oil and water DO NOT mix well at all.
  7. Turn off the burner right before dropping the turkey in.  Relight once your turkey is submerged.
  8. Have a helper for assistance when needed.  Two sets of eyes and hands always helps.
  9. Keep your children and pets away!  A turkey frying area is not the place for children to be playing or pets to be running around.
  10. Keep a Class K fire extinguisher around just in case of a fire.
