Following These Tips for Turkey Will Make Your Thanksgiving Dinner Safer
ROCK SPRINGS, Wyo. - Nov. 2, 2021 - PRLog -- From stuffing to brining to leftovers, everyone has a favorite Thanksgiving turkey menu. As you plan your holiday meal, follow these turkey tips from the fire safety industry. They will help you keep your Thanksgiving dinner delicious and safe.
Cooking is the biggest cause of home fires and fire injuries, and Thanksgiving is the peak day for home cooking fires. So there's no better time to focus on safety.
Start with these prevention tips:
Deep-frying turkeys has become popular in recent years. This cooking method has a lot of risks. Turkey fryers get hot all over, so they need to be handled with great care and only by an adult. They can tip over, spilling hot cooking oil. Partially frozen turkeys placed into hot fryers will cause the oil to splatter. If fryers are overfilled, the hot oil will spill over the side when the turkey is added. Even a small amount of oil on a hot burner can start a fire.
If you deep-fry a turkey, place the fryer outside on a flat surface that can't burn, such as cement. Place the fryer several feet from anything that can catch fire. Don't let children or pets come anywhere near it. An adult should watch the fryer while it cooks. Use a fryer with thermostat controls. Without these controls, the oil can heat to the point of catching fire. Thaw the turkey completely before cooking it so that ice crystals won't splatter the hot oil. Use potholders and oven mitts when handling the turkey.
For additional fire safety and burn prevention information, contact your local fire safety department. The goal this year is to enjoy future Thanksgiving holidays with friends and family. Safety is always first
