You will also need a basket that goes with the pot for easy lowering and raising of the turkey, an outdoor burner and a long stem thermometer for keeping the oil at a constant temerature.

Season the turkey inside and out. You can inject it with seasonings. Heat your oil to 360 degrees. Fry the turkey for 3 1/2 minutes per pound. Be carefull when lowering and raising the turkey. Do not use water to put out an oil fire.
