Celebrate Thanksgivukkah Correctly With A Deep-Fried Turkey (VIDEO)

It's Hanukkah and Thanksgiving, so we really only have one choice. We're deep-frying that sucker.

Alright friends, Thanksgivukkah is upon us, and it's time to talk turkey (literally). For those who are not aware, we fry latkes and jelly doughnuts in oil on Hanukkah to commemorate one night's worth of menorah oil miraculously lasting eight whole nights. Ordinarily, we would insist that you just put the f*cking turkey in the oven, but this year, we really only see one preparation choice for your Thanksgivukkah turkey -- you've got to deep fry it.

In the video above, Sam Sifton partners with Bon Appetit to show you the proper way to fry turkey. What does proper mean? It means you don't burn your house down or melt your feet off. It means you use the right tools, cook it for the right amount of the time and end up with a juicy, crispy Thanksgivukkah fried turkey recipe for the ages. Good luck and Happy Thanksgivukkah!
