And, yes, that may look cool in slow motion on YouTube; but it's significantly less cool when it's your garage burning.
But here's the rub: fried turkey is tasty. It's not tasty enough to justify burning down your house, but it is delicious.
The solution: Learn the right way to fry a turkey.
Then you can enjoy a perfectly fried bird and not turn your house into kindling.
Fortunately, the professionals from Gander Mountain are giving a demonstration on the safe (and delicious) way to fry a turkey on Thursday, Oct. 17, in the parking lot of Mentor Public Library’s Main Branch. The demonstration will begin at 6:30 p.m.
And, yes, there will be free samples when they're finished.
The outdoor chefs will even suggest special marinades and spice rubs that can you can use.
This program is part of a partnered seminar series by Mentor Public Library and the Mentor Gander for hunting and fishing enthusiasts.
During the last year, the professionals from Gander Mountain have talked about everything from kayak fishing to urban deer hunting at the library.
The outdoor cooking program is free and open to the public. However, the library asks that people register beforehand. People can sign up by calling (440) 255-8811 ext. 215 or by visiting the library's website.
