In Defense of Gobbler's Drift

Mad Minerva has a funny William Shatner video on the danger of dropping a turkey into a fryer with the flame on.

It was humorous--but too focused on one of the many disasters that can happen. I think the video makers would have done better to follow the script of Duffer's Drift to show all the things that can go wrong on the way to doing it right.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving. And a safe one. Even though you may have lots of Thanksgiving oven-cooked turkeys behind you, chances are you don't know as much as you think you know about deep frying a turkey.

Make sure, that when this day is over, you aren't saying "As God as my witness, I thought turkeys could fry."
