I don't usually post non-Electrical Safety Recalls, but I thought this one might be of interest to some.

On a personal note, I've been curious about this myself.

Any Members here Fry a Turkey like this?

I have not had the opportunity to use this particular model, but a turkey fried in Peanut oil is quite tasty.
