Tips to Help Prevent Deep Fried Turkey Accidents:

Purchase a fryer with temperature controls, and watch the oil temperature carefully. Cooking oil that is heated beyond its smoke point can catch fire. If you notice the oil is smoking, turn the fryer off.

Turn off the burner before lowering the turkey into the oil. Once the turkey is submerged, turn the burner on.

Wear goggles to shield your eyes, use oven mitts to protect your hands and arms and keep an "ABC" or grease-rated fire extinguisher close by. Do not use water or a garden hose on a fire related to Turkey Fryers.

Skip the stuffing when frying turkey, and avoid water based marinades.

Keep children and pets away from the fryer at all times.

Once finished, carefully remove the pot from the burner, place it on a level surface and cover to let the oil cool overnight before disposing.

Opt for an oil-less fryer. This uses infrared heat, rather than oil, to cook the turkey.

All of us at SERVPRO of Alamo Ranch hope that you have a happy and safe holiday season. If you need us for anything, please call us at 210-670-9591.
