Brett and I fried two turkeys for thanksgiving. This was our first attempt. You cannot get any manlier of a thing to do for Thanksgiving than frying turkeys. You are outside; it involves fire and the positional of expositions.
This being the case, we fried the turkeys in the front yard. This way we figured the Dalworthington Gardens Fire Department would have easy access if we somehow caused a problem.
Truth be told, two Eagle Scouts through proper preparation, successfully fried two turkeys without any major problems. We had some challenges with the oil level, but handled that with no panic.
Since we did not need them to come by, we brought one of the turkeys up to the DWG Police /Fire/Dispatch to feed our Public Safety Personnel working on Thanksgiving.
