Turkey for Thanksgiving or Christmas is such an important tradition that making sure the turkey presented to family and friends is perfect is absolutely necessary. Cooking a turkey in a convention oven can result in a bird is not cooked through, increasing chances of food poisoning. Conversely, overcooking can also result, leaving diners with a dry, desiccated meal. However, using the Bayou Classic 3016 30 Quart Outdoor Turkey Fryer will guarantee a perfect, delicious dinner with less fuss than would ordinarily be necessary.

This turkey fryer consists of a 30 quart aluminum fryer pot that sits over a cast iron stand. The stand contains the outdoor stove burner, and provides a stable base for the fryer. A hook up for a tank of propane gas is attached to the bottom of the stand. There is a regulator to control the gas flow. Set up of this fryer is extremely easy, and the Bayou Classic can be assembled in 10 or fifteen minutes with the simplest of tools.

This fryer is meant to be used outdoors, and should be set up on a non-combustible surface for safety. It would also be advisable to keep children and pets away from the fryer while it is in operation - there is a quantity of hot oil involved.

The Bayou Classic 3016 Turkey Fryer is easy to use in preparing the turkey for the feast. It is only necessary to add the appropriate amount of oil, allow it to heat to the proper temperature, and then lower the turkey in. As this fryer is narrow, it will use less oil than other brands, saving money. Anyone using this fryer will be delighted to realize that their turkey can be completely cooked in about 45 minutes, although size will determine the exact time needed. Gone are the days when a turkey roasted in the oven for 7 or 8 hours or more. It is important to make sure that the turkey is at room temperature when it is put into the fryer, however, putting in a cold turkey will result in additional cooking time, which will defeat part of the fryer's purpose.

Purchasing the Bayou Turkey Fryer will open up more cooking possibilities for the user, as well. Besides producing the perfect turkey for Thanksgiving or Christmas, this fryer can be used year round to cook chickens, seafood, or french fries. A steam basket will make it easy to cook up a batch of corn or other vegetables. The poultry rack is equipped with a grab-hook which makes it simple and safe to place the turkey into the fryer and remove it. Adding this appliance to the backyard cookery will make preparing turkey and other foods that much more enjoyable, and the results will be much tastier than turkey roasted in a oven.

Introduced in 2005, the Bayou Classic 3016 30 Quart Turkey Fryer is priced very reasonably at around $80.00. The features and performance of this fryer are generally only found on much higher priced units that will not produce any superior results. For anyone looking for a quality turkey fryer that will assure a delicious turkey, the Bayou Classic 3016 is the right appliance.
