    Agreed. I've cooked a whole turkey three times. 1- brined and oven roasted, 1- fried, and 1- oven roasted not brined. The brined oven roasted turkey was by far the best.

    There's one method I haven't tried yet and that's deep-fried. I've heard those are very good. I'm hoping someone who does it will post here and tell us the tricks.

    Did you deep fry yours?

    This is what my parents would make:

    Turkey with stuffing. Mashed potatos, with biscuits and gravy of course. Beats. Sweet potato mallow. Deviled eggs. And variably, some other meat may be involved, for instance, we'd often eat venison for the holidays.

    Let me also say that smoked turkeys are way better than the usual kind. They're also better than ham.

    The movie Australia is coming out on Thanksgiving. And it is, no doubt, going to be a turkey.

    Did you deep fry yours?

    Yeah. It was alright, I'm not real crazy about it but I learned the hard way not to fill the deep fryer more than half way with oil.

    Also, you're supposed to use peanut oil because of the higher smoking point. It's amazing how quickly it cooks too.

    Edit: Just to add a few more tips.

    - Might seem obvious but it doesn't hurt to state that this should be done OUTSIDE on pavement, not grass.
    - It's really important that the oil be very hot before you insert the turkey because the temp of the oil will drop a lot once the turkey is inserted, so use a thermometer to measure it.
    -Be sure that the turkey is completely thawed out, not at all frozen or it will cook too unevenly.
    - You obviously can't stuff the turkey beforehand.
    - The extremities (i.e. legs, wings) will be much crispier than the rest.

    If anyone needs a recipe and more detailed instructions, please feel free to PM me and I will share.
