Deep-frying a turkey can be a magical, delicious experience for all parties involved. Whether you’re celebrating with your lawyer friends on the East Coast or family members in Provo, Utah, make sure to stay safe over the holiday weekend. Lowering a 15-pound bird into a vat of boiling hot oil is never not going to be an inherently dangerous activity.
Accidents involving a deep-fried turkey are responsible for 900 burned-down houses, 60 injuries and five wrongful death cases every year. This Thanksgiving, follow these simple steps to ensure that after the festivities are over and the tryptophan kicks in, you still have a house.
