Thanksgiving Safety

Thanksgiving cooking is synonymous with home holiday celebrations. It is no coincidence therefore, that Thanksgiving is also the number one day of the year for home cooking fires. The most common reason for indoor and outdoor cooking fires is unattended food on the stovetop, BBQ grill, or the deep fryer.

The Turkey Fryer

Turkey fryers should be placed at least 10 ft. from the house. The fryer should be placed on flat ground. Oil in the fryer should be maintained at a constant temperature. Remember to leave enough room in the fryer for the whole turkey.  Many fires start when the turkey is submerged into the oil and it overflows onto the burners.  Water, when it encounters hot oil, will bubble, and cause oil to spill out of the fryer. So be sure to completely dry off the bird before you put it in the fryer.  Never use water to extinguish a grease or oil fire as this promotes the spread of fire. Try to smother the fire with a lid, or with baking soda or a fire extinguisher.
