Turkeys are a part of many Thanksgiving traditions. Although they aren’t made by everyone there are still many ways to prepare a turkey for your family on Thanksgiving. Turkeys can be made in all types of preparations. Math teacher Mr. Wilson likes to prepare his turkey by brining it in a brine for 12 hours. “I leave it in the brine overnight,” states Wilson. Then he covers it in butter and cooks it in the oven.
Science teacher Ms. Weber has used a different method in the past, including frying it. She gets a really big pot, fills it with oil, and heats it up. The oil has to be 400 degrees Fahrenheit. “It’s really dangerous. You deep fry it for like an hour and it takes longer for a bigger turkey,” says Weber. Ingredients many people use include several quarts of peanut oil, dry rub of creole seasoning, and some people may even put onion inside it.
