Turkey Frying Safety Tips

Follow these turkey frying safety tips to keep your Thanksgiving Day feast one that emergency personnel never have to visit!

  • Never leave the fryer unattended.
  • Keep children and pets away from the fryer at all times.
  • Wear protective equipment – eye protection and good grill mitts.
  • Defrost your turkey COMPLETELY – and dry it immersing it in hot oil.
  • Keep a grease-rated fire extinguisher within arm’s reach of your work area.
  • Never operate a fryer outdoors in the rain or snow.
  • Keep outdoor fryers away from combustible structures or trees – that means off the deck, too!
  • Place the fryer on a level surface and do not move it around once heating.
  • Leave two feet between the tank and the burner when using a propane-powered fryer – consider wrapping hose in aluminum foil to prevent hot oil that may splatter from touching it.
  • Do not overfill the fryer.
  • Turn off burner if oil is smoking. Use a fryer with a temperature gauge and keep a sharp eye on it.
  • Turn off the burner before lowering the turkey into the oil. Once the turkey is submerged, turn the burner on.
  • Once finished, carefully remove the pot from the burner, place it on a level surface and cover to let the oil cool overnight before disposing.
