Each year, fire departments across the country are called for those deep-frying disasters by people who didn’t follow the safety routines for their Thanksgiving meal. Here’s how to do it right, and what can happen if you do it wrong.

This first video is a good demonstration of how to do things correctly.

The second video is a great demonstration of how to have big problems.

Don’t ever deep fry a frozen turkey. Don’t ever deep fry your turkey inside your house or garage, or on your porch.
Do measure the needed amount of oil using water.

Do enjoy your deep fried turkey safely!
