    Please---I never went the turkey fryer route---for obvious reasons. This could make for a boring day---without all the "logistical" issues of frying a turkey.

    The link you posted above sure looks good. I hope it works well for you, too. If so, I just might need to get one.

    What Mike said

    I wish they had more than a 16 lbs size limit.

    Yeah, there's always some cook here in my state that assumes they can successfully cook a turkey in hot oil. And, it's pretty darned impressive how quickly it ignites a huge fire.

    Excellent

    How big was the chicken and how long did it take?

    Standard sized chicken about 5 lbs. Took just a little over an hour to get up to 165*....

    I use a Meater thermometer that tracks the temp on my phone ...

    ...and now for the important question----was the dark meat done and the breast still juicy? That "trick" is the challenge when roasting a whole foul.

    I'm a dark meat fan and the whole bird was tender and juicy !!! Just made a sandwich for lunch out of the breast meat and it was good too.
