Does anyone know where, locally, we can order a deep fried turkey for the holiday? Want to try it out without the hassle of buying the oil and deep fryer...

Thanks

I don't know of anywhere that you can actually order them from a store.

I have my own fryer that is barely ever used, but fried turkey sure is tasty! I think you can pick up a fryer for relatively inexpensive nowadays, might be worth the expense if you find you like it.

Was looking at the same for Thanksgiving. Have done my own in the past, I would rather just have it done for me. Then a coworker suggested Popeyes (yeah, the chicken place)..... I havent' done it, but thinking about it.

It's old, but this is what I found:
Fried Turkey for Thanksgiviing - Washington DC & Baltimore Area - Chowhound

Of the options listed, you could try looking at Eastern Market (they mention Inman's) or a farmer's market, maybe?

If I am not mistaken, I think you should be able to order one from Georgia Brown's, since it's on the menu. Other than that, you can order online from a few places, some of whom ship overnight.

Jive Turkey in Brooklyn's Clinton Hill, for example, will ship their turkeys and they have unique flavor options as well. There's usually a long line to get one at the store, so they must be pretty good.

Apparently, the cajun turkey is only available for order at Thanksgiving, not Xmas...My brother just called them.

The great thing about fried turkey is you don't need gravy. I made one for thanksgiving and it turned out great. If you do invest in a fryer, go with an electric one. It works well for indoor use and doesn't have all the safety concerns of a propane model (open flame + 3 gallons of oil + inexperience = BIG Fire!). It also works well for boiling crabs!

Are we talking about frying a turkey in peanut oil? I have a friend that did it himself and the turkey was good, but the cost of the oil was prohibitive.
