Cooking InstructionsHide images
step 1
Pat Whole Turkey (14 lb) dry inside and out with a paper towel. This step is very important, since hot oil and water create a violent reaction.
step 2
Into a pot, add Water (10 fl oz), Butter (1 stick), and Cajun Marinade (1 pckg). Stir together and heat until the mixture is lukewarm.
step 3
Inject the cajun mixture into the turkey in a series of three straight lines down the back, as well as into the legs.
step 4
Tuck the wings behind the bird.
step 5
Preheat oil in deep fryer to 325 degrees F (160 degrees C).
step 6
Deep fry turkey for 43 minutes, lowering into the oil very slowly.
step 7
Transfer turkey to cutting board and coat with Cajun Rub (to taste).
step 8
Place the turkey in a roasting bag and transfer to a cooler for 30 minutes.
step 9
Carve turkey, serve, and enjoy!
