The new Bayou Classic® 42-qt 'Grand Gobbler' is specifically designed to fry your larger Thanksgiving turkey up to 25 pounds! Made of 99% pure aluminum, this 42-qt Turkey Fryer features heavy duty riveted handles and a vented lid. Inside the pot is a patented Poultry Rack and Lift Hook designed to create a circular flow of oil up through and around the cavity during the frying process. The final result is cooking your Thanksgiving Turkey golden brown. The select-grain leather glove (right hand only) protects from hot oil as you lift the turkey, to slowly insert and later remove, from the pot. The stainless 12-in. fry thermometer enables you to monitor and maintain optimal frying temperature. The 2 oz. Seasoning Injector with stainless needle is ideal for infusing your favorite seasonings into the turkey prior to cooking. Use outdoors only with your favorite Bayou Classic® high pressure cooker.
And yes, even larger size turkeys up to 35-lb can be fried in the Grand Gobbler, but legs and wings must first be removed and fried separately; otherwise, they will overcook. When doing this, fry the turkey body following the standard instructions for 'whole' turkeys. Typically, legs and wings require 18 minutes to cook separately.
Sales person says: Specifically designed for frying a whole turkey in as little as 45 minutes, this aluminum Bayou Classic Turkey Fryer features a tall, narrow patented design that requires less cooking oil than a standard stockpot.
