Masterbuilt 20011210 Butterball
Roll on summer so I get a chance to use my super new Masterbuilt 20011210 Butterball again, I was given this deep fryer as a gift a little while ago I have already deep fried 2 turkeys and they came out just as good as the outdoor fryer but without the mess. The unit was purchased from Amazon and was well packaged.
In getting the masterbuilt 20011210 butterball unit ready for use, make sure to remove all of the paper first (the inside is lined with cardboard…y
ou’ll need to pull the right side (this is the side where the heating mechanism comes out from) of the unit upwards) to get rid of the cardboard material. Be careful when doing this as you could easily damage the coil if It’s done too fast.
Note also, you’ll need to take off the plastic that covers the drain, You won’t use more than 2.75 gallons of peanut oil (the outdoor fryer used about 4 gallons). The fryer comes with a basket which can easily hold a 18lb turkey. I suggest placing the unit in a garage and leave the windows open for a few days, placing inside the home may give you a turkey smell for a few days.
The peanut oil takes about 45 minutes to heat up. Once the unit is ready, the green light will go on. Place the turkey into the masterbuilt 20011210 butterball fryer and set the digital timer (about 3 1/2 to 4 minutes per pound). There are cavities in the unit so that if oil spills out, you’ll be able to remove It (I use a dry paper to do this). Only do this during cooking if your unit is excessively sweating (drips coming out of the unit).
As you know when turkey frying especially with a Masterbuilt 20011210 Butterball
1. make double sure the bird is fully thawed & remove the neck and giblets
2. peanut oil works best
3. carefully place the bird down into the unit as to avoid any spills & use the right protective gear (oven gloves )
4. keep a good watch by staying near the unit while it’s cooking / keep the little ones away for safety
5. look to ensure that the peanut oil covers the whole bird. If you need to add more oil, wait 10- 15 minutes after placing the turkey into the unit. The bird will cool down the oil, so that if you need to, you can slowly add more oil to the fryer. When your doing this, be careful and make sure that you have the right protective clothing.
Once the turkey is cooked, the basket comes with a hook so that you can hang on the side of the unit so the oil goes back into the pan. I would recommend placing a paper bag/tray underneath the bird when transporting it into the house so that the oil doesn’t drip oil into the house.
Use a butterball turkey for best results
Brine your turkey with Sea Salt you can do this twice, the skin will absorb the salt. However, the second brine will increase the saltiness of the bird.
To give the turkey a better taste stuff 1 1/2 pounds of uncooked bacon between the skin in the meat everywhere possible on the turkey and put 10 oz of beer into the breast meet and the legs then cook and enjoy.
