How Long Do You Deep Fry A Turkey In A Butterball Deep Fryer?

How long do you deep fry a turkey in a Butterball deep fryer?

  • While the oil is heating, prepare your turkey with any seasonings, marinades, or injected flavors.
  • Once the oil is heated, place the basket in the fryer for 30 seconds.
  • Set the timer and cook the turkey about 3 to 4 minutes per pound.
  • Does turkey have to be fully submerged in oil?

    Remember, when thawed completely, the food must be cooked immediately. For more, see our Big Thaw fact sheet. When working with large amounts of hot oil, select a cooking vessel large enough to completely submerge the turkey without it spilling over. The oil should cover the turkey by 1 to 2 inches.
