Female: Okay. Gosh! Now, we’re starting the turkey.
Male 1: Hey mama. We’re about to get started off.
Female: Okay. What are you doing? Are you going to season him good?
Male 1: This is Tom. He’s about 14 pounds. We’re going to put a light—we’re actually going to use your seasoning on this bird. We’re going to season it really lightly with the house seasoning.
Female: Don’t forget to rub your meat.
Male 1: Just kind of light and we’re going to really season him after he comes out.
Female: I’m going to go in the house. I can’t wait to taste it guys.
Male 1: Okay. We’ll see you a little later.
This is a 14-pound bird. And our rule of thumb on frying a turkey is three minutes per pound. So we’re going to cook this bird for 42 minutes and then we’re going to give him 5 extra minutes just for safety just to make sure that it’s cooked thoroughly. This is a meat tool right here to keep from splashing and coming up on you so I’m going to use this and lower the bird down in here. It’s about 400 degrees and this is about 47 minutes worth of cooking. Beautiful.
Male 2: It already smells great.
Male 1: Look how fine that looks.
Male 2: That bird looks perfect.
Male 1: 47 minutes later and look at this delicious bird that we got.
Male 2: We’re going to season this now right after it comes out of the fryer.
Male 1: What I’ve got here is a stick of buttermilk, I got a little garlic powder as well as a teaspoon and a half of Cheyenne. Now we’re going to do this right. When it comes out of the fryer because it’s wet with the grease and the seasons wood, it will cook really well.
Female: Oh! Perfect timing. He’s perfect.
Male 1: And this is the seasoning that you were asking us about.
Female: My goodness. I can’t wait to have a turkey sandwich. Here, you grab that leg. Alright, just let your brother and I grab the leg, now pour that butter in there.
Male 1: I thought he was going to steal my drum stick.
Female: No. I would never do that to you.
Male 1: You’re a classic drum stick stealer. You’re notorious for it. And that looks wonderful.
