Serve Up Deep-Fried Delights This Holiday Season

The passion Southerners have long felt about deep-fried turkey – particularly at holiday time – has traveled across the country.

Celebrity chefs such as Emeril Lagasse have gotten people raving about and craving this culinary creation. When properly prepared, the turkey’s tasty and delicious flavor is hard to resist.

Many want to enliven their guests’ taste buds and put a twist on traditional holiday fare by serving deep-fried turkey, but don’t know how to get started. You can prepare it in traditional propane-fueled turkey cookers. Or try a new electric turkey fryer, which offers consumers additional features and improved safety. The Masterbuilt electric fryers, the first in the industry, are CSA approved under UL Standard No. 1083 for use literally everywhere.

Unlike traditional propane fryers, the new Masterbuilt electric models let you cook on a screened-in porch or in a garage as well as in the kitchen, and they are also ideal to take along on camping trips or vacation. These electric fryers won’t cramp your cooking style. They are deep enough to fry a 14-pound turkey, wide enough to steam lobsters and roomy enough to handle 10 to 15 ears of corn.

Electric grills are also becoming popular on the patio or deck, as they are usually the only choice in most multi-unit townhome, condo and apartment environments. The Electric Veranda GrillTM meets this U.S. household demographic that continues to change in both size and composition. This stainless steel grill has a small footprint that enables placement in the corner of even a small patio or deck.

The electric grill is easy to use and clean and inexpensive to operate.

More than 80 percent of U.S. families barbecue, and the average barbecuing household now has 1.6 grills, according to the Hearth, Patio & Barbecue Association. These specialty cooking appliances add flexibility to the backyard barbecuer’s repertoire!

The Masterbuilt fryers Turk ‘n SurfTM and The Big e FryerTM and its Electric Veranda Grill are now available at selected national and regional retail chains.
