  • Turkey deep fryer kit



  • Heat up oil to 325 degrees F.
  • Trim off any large chunks of thick fat and french the bones for presentation (optional) use butchers twine to tie the roast next to each bone to help hold the shape of the roast.
  • Combine salt, pepper, granulated onion, and granulated garlic then season the roasts liberally on all sides
  • Combine smashed garlic and shallot and a stick of melted butter. Inject the garlic butter into the roast every 2 inches (optional step)
  • Once the oil reaches 325 degrees lower the roast into the oil slowly making sure the oil doesn’t bubble over. Take your time
  • Cook the roast at between 280-300 degrees F. until you reach an internal temperature of about 90-95 degrees F.
  • Keep a probe in the center of the roast and tent with aluminum foil. Rest for 20-30 minutes until you reach an internal temperature of 120-130 for medium-rare.
  • Remove the roast from the fryer rod before slicing, the outer slices will be more cooked than the center but have more crust. Slice the roast as thick or as thin as you prefer. Make sure to remove the butcher's twine before serving.
