FRYING SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

OUTDOOR FRYING:

Follow the directions explicitly that come with your UL approved, high-quality Turkey Fry Kit, making sure that all connections with the propane tank to the burner are secure and tight with no gas leaks. (Otherwise, somebody might have a housewarming they didn't expect.) Do not place burner anywhere near flammable material, decks, garages, etc. and NEVER fry on an open burner indoors.

Using the long-stemmed thermometer that comes with your kit, heat Cottonseed Oil (or high-grade cooking oil) to 350 degrees in the pot of your UL-approved, high-quality Turkey Fry Kit using the Propane Burner you have safely ignited.

INDOOR FRYING:

Follow the directions explicitly that come with your UL approved, high-quality CAJUN INJECTOR® INDOOR TURKEY FRY KIT. While the indoor fryer can be placed on a countertop or on a floor, hot grease sometimes will pop out. Keep away from cloth or fabric such as carpeting.

Outdoor Burning Safety Tips!
Never place an open-flame burner of any kind inside any building, including the garage

Never place the burner on a wooden deck or near anything flammable

Stabilize the burner on level ground as low as possible

Make sure all propane gas fittings are tight with no leaks

Keep children and pets away from the open flame

Never leave an operating turkey fryer unattended. NEVER. Take the TV or radio outside to listen to the game

Never heat oil to above 375-degrees

Never put frozen or partially-thawed meat into boiling oil. The combination of ice and hot oil could create an explosion and cause oil to boil over and ignite. Always thaw meat COMPLETELY

Always use safety gloves and metal hook to retrieve turkey from hot oil
