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 three and a half minutes of cooking time per pound. Since I’m frying a 15-pound turkey in this video, I’ll give it 45 minutes at 350°F, then check temp it to make sure its cooked through.
