Turkey Fryer Fire Safety Tips for Savannah
Five dangers of deep frying a turkey:
1.Turkey fryers can easily tip over, spilling hot cooking oil over a large area.
2.An overfilled cooking pot will cause cooking oil to spill when the turkey is put in, and a partially frozen turkey will cause cooking oil to splatter when put in the pot.
3.Even a small amount of cooking oil spilling on a hot burner can cause a large fire.
4.Without thermostat controls, deep fryers can overheat oil to the point of starting a fire.
5.The sides of the cooking pot, lid and pot handles can get dangerously hot.
