Ok frying gurus, I need some advice. I tried frying ours for the first time yesterday. Kept frying till the meat thermometer read 165 in the breast. Tried to keep the oil at 350 throughout and cooked for a total of 55 minutes for a 12lb bird. We're did I go wrong? 100% peanut oil. Do you think my oil thermometer might be off?
My wife was fine with it. The breast meat was ok, so it's not like her and the kids starved. The underside meat was actually great. Drumsticks we're toasty though. She knew it was a gamble since it was our first time cooking a turkey and then also the first time frying.
