With the icy roads, Snohomish County Sheriff John Lovick felt like he could not leave his post today for the annual turkey fry, but we’re leaving you with his recipe. Lovick will be back next Thanksgiving. Have a great holiday.

JOHN LOVICK’S DEEP-FRIED TURKEY RECIPE:
If you are planning on cooking a deep fried turkey, please be very cautious and remember: safety first.

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 medium-chopped onion
6-8 cloves garlic
6 tablespoons mild hot sauce
1 tablespoon prepared mustard
4 tablespoons seasoning salt
2 cups water
1 turkey, thawed if frozen
Make marinade by mixing Worcestershire sauce, onion, garlic and hot sauce in blender until liquefied. Add prepared mustard, seasoning salt and water. Dry turkey inside and out. With a meat injector, inject 1/2 a cup of marinade in both sides of breast. Inject in legs and thighs and wings.
Season the turkey with a pinch of cayenne pepper, if desired. Heat 5 gallons of peanut oil to 350 degrees.

*** DO NOT OVER-FILL THE COOKER WITH OIL–IT CAN SPILL OVER THE EDGE WHEN YOU INSERT THE TURKEY AND CAUSE AN OIL FIRE ***
Slowly lower turkey into oil. Cook for 3-1/2 minutes per pound. Turkey will get golden brown. Remove from oil and allow to cool for half an hour.
