How to Deep-Fry A Whole Turkey
Reviewed By SouthlandMechSer
"Cook22, I am a Southern Reneck. I'm also a retired Submariner who operated, performed maintenance, and repaired some very technical and potentially dangerous equipment, machinery,and systems. Your warning concerning deep frying a turkey is valid where idiots are concerned. For those more intelligent folk like those who can operate a car, run machinery, operate powet woodworking tools, operate a hammer, chew gum and walk at the same time...these fryers can be operated safely. So, we Rednecks are not in any danger....you? Follow the instruction and use your head, safety doing anything is paramount."

How to Deep-Fry A Whole Turkey
Reviewed By Cook22
"Deep frying a turkey is a redneck invention if there ever was one. How many other ways to cook something pretty much dictate that you have a fire extinguisher VERY near by? All it take for a disaster you do NOT want to deal with is for a child to trip over the propane tank and knock it all over, or hit the fryer itself. Either way you've got a GIANT fire if the oil is hot enough to fry, and most likely burnt humans, not just the turkey. This way of 'cooking' rates right up there with trucks that are so high from giant tires, that you honestly need a step ladder to get in and out of one...unless of course you can fly, but I digress. For the sake of you sanity and the safety of your or your neighbors children(including the "children" that are using one of these, PLEASE stop before you even buy one. Like the saying about Corvairs back in the day by Ralph Nader, he said they were unsafe at any speed. These turkey fryers are unsafe in the hands of ANYBODY! There are too many variables that could go wrong in a split second, and as a former roofer that worked with tar that was 4-500+ degrees, and then a legitimate cook for decades, I know how fast things can go wrong and people end up permanently disfigured for LIFE because of flammable liquids. Just be NORMAL and use an oven like most NORMAL people do, and DO NOT buy these death traps! Would you like to see YOUR kid scarred for life just because you wanted to "run with the big dogs"?? Didn't think so. Oh yeah...if one of your neighbors kids gets severely burned by your new pos toy, you can and probably WILL get sued!!"

Canning Temperatures and Processing Times
Reviewed By GrandmaGirlScout
"This is a common mistake people make regarding botulism. You state, "In high-acid foods, such as tomatoes, fruit and pickles, the growth of the Clostridium botulinum bacteria, which is heat resistant, is prevented by the high acidity level or the acidity allows the botulism spores to be destroyed quicker when boiled. This allows them to be processed using a boiling-water-bath at 212°F." You actually have this backwards. It is the SPORES that need the super high heat of pressure canning to kill them so they can't produce the cells that turn to the deadly bacteria, which IS easy to kill with heat. This is why all home-canned low-acid foods should be boiled for 10 minutes before tasting or eating, because if the bacteria did grow in the low-acid anaerobic environment, they would be killed by boiling."

Roasting Turkey
Reviewed By Eyemin
"I cut the tail off the turkey. My wife said I should have left it on because that's how she closed the cavity to secure the stuffing. She would sew it closed. Any suggestions? Foil? Cheese cloth? Signed, In the doghouse"

Turkey Cooking Times
Rating of 5 out of 5.0 stars
Reviewed By leewos
"Excellent guidelines. I especially like the addition of the "cooking in a bag" method. I usually "stuff" mine loosely with carrots, celery and onions".......but because these vegetables give off steam, it helps cook the bird internally so I use the times for an UNSTUFFED bird. The vegetables maintain moisture in the white meat and adds a good flavor."

Types of Cookware
Reviewed By SharonRay
"I don't quite agree with the cookware listed here being healthy. Being a healthy cook myself, I did some research to find healthy pots and pans and the results were shocking. I used to believe that not all metals are bad for cooking. I found out about the alkaline baking soda test (https://miriamsearthencookware.com/2015/08/11/the-baking-soda-test-a-simple-reliable-method-to-test-cookwares-toxicity-in-your-kitchen/) to check if a material leaches toxins while cooking. I was surprised to find that most metals and ceramics cookware are toxic. I was worried about the health of my family and started researching for 100% non-toxic cookware. Luckily I found a useful article and would like to post this link with your permission: http://ezinearticles.com/?Consumer-Buying-Guide-For-The-Best-Pots-And-Pans&id=9800295 and got to know that MEC's pure-clay pots are naturally non-reactive to food thus make the perfect cookware. Since then I just love this new way of healthy cooking and everyone in my family is happy with how delicious food cooks in them."
