How to Fry a Turkey and Is the Whole Thing a Sham?

Of course, theres yet one more theory, and the one which actually might be the most likely: It’s just plain cool. People don’t fry turkey for the flavor or moisture. They fry turkey because frying sh*t is cool, and frying really big sh*t is really cool.

How to Make Perfect Thin and Crisp French Fries

Im gonna come right out and say something that Im sure you wont all openly agree with: McDonalds french fries are great. At their best, they are everything a french fry should be: salty, crisp, light, and not greasy. Granted, you get the occasional odd franchise that letsem sit under the heat lamp for a couple hours too long, but on the whole, I find it remarkable that the bigwigs have discovered a way to create a frozen fry that even a one armed eyeless chimp has trouble screwing up. And I know, because they’ve got one working the fry station at the franchise on my corner.

I did it. I made french fries that rival those at McDonalds. I have this post to thank for that.
