Last night was kind of a scary night at our house.

I’ll start by telling you that my husband has always had a bit of a “fire” paranoia. When we were first married, he would be doing the laundry (yes… he does the laundry…I consider myself to be very lucky!) and he would have to check the dryer every 10 minutes because he’d be nervous about fire. One time I wanted to leave a light on for our dog while we were out for the evening and he would have nothing of it. What if the house caught on fire while we were gone because of that one light bulb being on?

So, it came to a bit of a surprise to me when he decided, after we borrowed all of our friends fryers for the Shrimp Boil we hosted this summer, that he wanted a turkey fryer. We all know about the horror stories with turkey fryers and house fires. My husband wanting a turkey fryer was a step to fire paranoia recovery.

The timing couldn’t be more perfect when a rep for the Masterbuilt Butterball Electric Turkey Fryer contacted us to see if we’d like to test one of their turkey fryers as well as give one to a lucky Dine & Dish reader. Even more exciting was the fact that the Masterbuilt Butterball Electric Turkey Fryer is one of the only turkey fryers with a CSA certification and a design that meets Underwriters Laboratories Inc. standards.

Even with that glowing endorsement, we still sent our kids away from the kitchen, had a fire extinguisher at hand, and nervously watched over our fryer as it cooked our Butterball turkey. About half way through the cooking process,  I looked at my husband and said “You realize, if the fryer hasn’t exploded by now, it probably isn’t going to explode!”

We’ve conquered our turkey frying fear and now feel like we could do it again and again without any trepidation at all. And, we can’t wait to do it again and again because this was one moist, delicious and amazing tasting bird!

    In the wee hours of the morning I get up and do my Rosary, and then proceed to attend Mass at my church. Then after coming home and making breakfast for my family I start the preparation of my geting “the bird” ready for the oven. I’ve already prepared, stufing, peeled veggies, made the pumpkin pie and cranberry compode. I’ve already set my table with linens and dishes. I’ve already prepared the sweet potatoes with the marshmellow just waiting to enter into the oven when the “bird is cooked” 165 F. on the thick side of the thigh. I’ve basted and I’ve set some time away for me to just wait till the family are through watching the football game on the big screen. I’ve made myself a toddy of cranberry juice, oj, sparkling cider, cinnamon sticks, whole cloves, and some cut up fresh fruit heated to the simmering stage.

    After the meal is completed, I am at leisure so I usually take a nap getting ready to get up around midnight for those “Black Friday Sales” to take me to the zoo of people scattering around to pick up just the perfect gifts for the holidays. (God Bless them, everyone!)
    Next day is really for ME. I love left over turkey, tukey pot pie, turkey Shephards Pie, or just an old fashioned turkey sandwich with some cranberry compode on the top with lettuce and tomato. Now that’s for me…
    What ever is left is for turkey soup… My MOM would make a huge pot of that and I learned from her. So many used fresh veggies, celery, carrots, onions, parsnips, potatoes, turnips, Summer Savory, fresh parsley, and any left over veggies from the day before. I usually make a huge pot of the soup and share with neighbors..but I do keep some on hand in my deep freeze for another night next week or so…

    So, that’s my Thanksgiving! Now with only 40 day till Christmas, what am I serving….yeah, you guessed it…Turkey again… I LOVE the stuff… I always buy two just before Thanksgiving if the price is right, and put one away so I can avoid any extra holiday shopping…smiles. :)

    Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas and a Healthy and Happy New Year.

    Sirs I would love to see you guys come up with a cooking oil purifier so the oil would last longer. Some way to clean it so it can be reused. Thank you so much.

  3. Chenita Hall says

    We spend our Thanksgiving with my sister giving thanks for all of the blessings of the year! And this cooker would definately help in the preparation of all of the food!!!!

  4. Diane Green says

    Typically we start preparing the food 4-5 days in advanced. Our whole family gets together and we eat as a family.

  5. Melissa Thomson says

    I usually cook on Thanksgiving, but it is usually just for our family of 4. Need to clean up and get to bed early for Black Friday shopping!

  6. April says

    This year my family will be celebrating Thanksgiving at Walt Disney World.
    We’re all so excited and can’t wait!!!!!
    Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

  7. says

    A favorite Thanksgiving tradition is having a fun decorated children’s table.
    This will be my first Thanksgiving where I will be making the turkey. I’m a little scared I will mess it up, a fried turkey sounds interesting!:)

  8. Oanh S. says

    We live in California and our families live in different states. Our friends often invite us over because we have a business that is open on the saturday after Thanksgiving therefore making traveling very difficult to see family. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  9. Vickie Ames says

    Everyone comes over and I cook a Butterball turkey! We have fried them from time to time if a smaller clan shows up!

  10. John Zivec says

    We love deep fried turkey in our house. But it is teedious to keep an eye on the
    tempature and the worry of a fire. This would be so much safer!

    I have always cooked our Thanksgiving turkey with all the fixins since I married my high school sweetheart at the age of 18. We recently visited my mother & step father in law out of state for an “early Thanksgiving” because he was being deployed to Iraq just this last week for an entire year. My step father in law had cooked the turkey in their new oil-less deep fryer (absolutely amazing contraption!) and it was the juiciest, most tender turkey that just seemed to melt in your mouth. Our 3yo son was literally stealing it off of my plate! lol. One of my brother in laws a few years back deep fried a turkey for Thanksgiving as well and it had the same results (so tender, juicy, bursting with flavor & melted in your mouth!). I have always wanted a turkey fryer of my own but it’s just something that we have never been able to afford with work being so slow and bills being so tight. Now that my brother in law and father in law, as well as their immediate families, all live out of state with money being so tight we won’t be able to visit them for Christmas this year nor will we be able to enjoy those amazing Deep fried turkeys! :o( I would be so grateful if I were to receive this turkey fryer and I would put it to great use, and not just on Thanksgiving & Christmas. Thanks to the local turkey sales this time of year we can afford to keep an extra turkey in the freezer. While I love the way my turkey comes out (baked, basted every 30 min. for several hours while trying to juggle side dishes all with different cooking temps-a nightmare!) but I have cooked my turkeys this same way for the past 15 years! To have my own turkey fryer would be a dream come true. I could prepare it in an entirely different way and it would allow me to free up my small oven so that I could prepare all my side dishes at the same time and have it all hot on the table instead of lukewarm and trying to keep various side dishes warm while others were still cooking. With our income being so tight due to the economy this Christmas is looking to be our worst yet (no bonus, we build houses & right now the housing market barely has a pulse) this would be a wonderful surprise to both myself and my husband and would also serve as a Christmas gift that we both have always wanted. Thank you for considering me in the giveaway. God Bless & Happy Holidays everyone! <3

    For the last ten years, I have spent my Thanksgiving alone, as I do on every holiday. All of my family lives very far away. I love to cook, and I do a lot of it! I will sometimes bring food to friends that live in my apartment on the holidays. I learned about this frier while watching Huckabee, and I was very impressed with everything about it. I would love to be able to try it out!!!!

  13. Lakisha says

    It’s been a Thanksgiving tradition (recent, anyway) to complain that we never get to have fried turkey for the holidays!

  14. Lakisha says

    And now that I am a fan on Facebook, the tradition about complaining that we never get to eat fried turkey may end once and for all! :-)
