Hey everyone,

It's Thanksgiving here in the USA and I was just wondering what people's preferences were: fried versus roasted turkey. I've roasted traditionally but recently started to fry my turkeys and have fallen in love with it. What's everyone else's thoughts?

Happy Thanksgiving!

Two years ago we did a turkey cook-off with my husband's family. Three turkeys, one fried, one roasted, one smoked. The unanimous consensus was:

1) fried
2) smoked
3) roasted

I'm currently on an overseas posting, so will be celebrating far from my family this year, with roast turkey as the only choice (but yay for expat restaurants that prepare traditional holiday meals!).

Be safe with your fryer, and have a wonderful holiday!

Woah woah woah.
smoked. I haven't tried that before. Thanks for the heads-up!

My friend has an electric butterball turkey fryer. As long as the turkey is properly defrosted it's nice and safe with no open fire. :-D YUM.

You should definitely try the smoked version one year! Only downside is you really have to do it the day before... because most turkeys take a LONG time in there.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

what?! you've never eaten meat?!

PLEASE!!! let me do the honor of introducing you to some american-style meatloaf, some korean bbq, some good-ol' fashion hamburgers, and most importantly, my infamous "lousiana/asian" styled fried chicken - and yes, we deep fry like there ain't no tomorrow :P I don't know how you do, I'd probably been done committed suicide already if I couldn't eat meat.

Haha, I have never tried meat and hence what I am missing is immaterial. I'm Indian, remember? We have delicious vegetarian dishes that completely rule out the necessity for meat both for taste and for nutrition. :)

what?! (sigh) you need to try it. we'll...maybe not if you want to continue being a vegetarian. So i know this is a little off-topic but what really inspired you to be a vegetarian? Never really got that feeling or need to quit eating a certain food...even if it was bad i always give it a second try. And maybe third =D (ie. pig ears)

I told you - I have never tried meat in my life. The way I was raised - both my parents are strict vegetarians and I am an Hindu brahmin. That's just the way things works :)

Indian vegetarian food leaves no room for desire for meat. Really. :) Never been tempted to try any, simply because it's breaking 20 years of how I've eaten and I am quite content the way I am :)

I've completed my triumvirate of turkeys!
