Exploding Fowl

Turkey frying might be one of those things best left to the experts. That's because, according to the National Fire Protection Agency, so many things—so, so many things—can go wrong when we do it ourselves. From burns caused by splattering oil, to turkeys that literally explode while being submerged into gallons of white-hot oil. Oh, and while we figure you guys are smart enough to figure this out yourselves, never—and we mean NEVER—use a turkey fryer indoors.
