with the upcoming holiday of thanksgiving [canadian] deep-fried turkey is apparently the best there is. though i have never had it, anything deep-fried is worth a try.
this is obviously an outdoor endeavour using specialized equipment. i heard talk today that the best oil to make deep-fried turkey with is peanut oil due to its high smoking point and that it does not form sludge which makes clean-up a nasty thing.
check out the contraption itself at the specialist site, Bayou Classics [the deep south is apparently home of the deep-fried turkey].
look here for a step by step with pictures & explanations of the whole process.
