1 12-15 lb Turkey, thawed and dried
1 bottle Stubb’s Texas Butter or Chipotle Butter Injectable Marinade
Stubb’s Chicken Spice Rub (optional)
Vegetable Oil (or other oil of your choice)
Turkey Deep Fryer Kit
Before you remove your turkey from its plastic packaging, place it in the turkey deep fryer. Fill the fryer with water two inches above the turkey. Remove the turkey and measure the water. That is the amount of oil you will need to cook your turkey.
Remove the turkey from the packaging and the neck and giblets from the inside of the turkey. Pour the marinade into a measuring cup. Pull the marinade into the injector.
To inject, push the needle all the way down until you hit the bone. As you push the plunger down, pull the needle up. Be sure to distribute the marinade in multiple places of each part of the turkey so that every bite is flavored. You’ll want to inject the marinade as follows: 4oz in each breast, 1oz in thigh, 1/2oz in leg.
Rub the entire turkey with Stubb’s Chicken Spice Rub, if desired.
Heat your oil in the deep fryer to 350°F then turn your fryer off (this will prevent a grease fire in case your oil comes out when you lower your turkey in). Place your turkey into the fryer basket and lower it into the oil. Wait one minute and then relight the fire.
Cook your turkey for 3 ½ minutes per pound. Remove turkey when temperature reaches 160°F. Let the turkey rest until it reaches 165°F.
