    Very necessary...if you dunk the bird in peanut oil and it overflows, you have a serious fire...

Iím pretty sure injecting the bird is critical when deep frying.

    Iíve actually never tried that before. Was thinking about digging an imu and building a smokehouse in my backyard at some point... too many other projects going on before I can get to that though.

    We do a fried turkey almost every year. Always do a creole injection and Cajun rub, probably the exact one mentioned above lol
    My personal favorite.

    This year as Iím in an apt and canít have a fryer Iím going to do the oven but with the same injection and rub. Hopefully I donít ruin it, about 7 people are depending on it for dinner

Rotiserrie over a fire, deboned/mojo rubbed, and 1001 other things you can do with a turkey that's better than deep frying, but if you want to try it out, why not.
    I have had it that was really good. Iíve also had it and it was very bad.

    We've been doing them on Traeger for a few years now & won't bother with an oven bird again. They come out awesome - nice & tender. Never dry either.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
