The Greenwood Fire Department says frying a turkey can be very dangerous if performed incorrectly. It says to always completely thaw turkeys before placing them into the deep fryer.

The fire department also says to not overfill the frying pot with cooking coil. This can cause an overflow which can catch fire.
