This is how to deep fry a turkey, Cajun style! Throw tradition out the window and bust out the big burners for this recipe. To prepare the bird, I inject it with a Cajun butter baste and let it rest in the fridge the night before frying. A good rule of thumb when frying turkey is to allow three to...

Video: How to Clean and Cook Octopus

It seems like folks are either really passionate about eating octopus or really passionate about not. I don't discriminate my meals by only choosing animals that us humans deem as dumb—and I actually believe that chickens, pigs, and most creatures we consume are far more intelligent than we give...
