“pretty effective,” but not totally eh?
Spending all day in brine does do a number on one’s skin.

The only thing I’ll brine is pieces of (non-human) meat. (Specifically those consider food by most. smile)

Take care,

Derek

I got a turkey fryer for my birthday… Four years ago. Sadly I haven’t used it yet.  red face

But it’s not for lack of desire! (I really want to do a Cajun spiced deep fried turkey. Thanksgiving in July! Hoody hoo! smile)

And for those concerned about safety we have a large (cement) patio in the backyard and a good fire extinguisher!

Take care,

Derek

Have you ever tasted a deep fried turkey? It is very moist and not at all greasy (when done properly). I used to buy turkeys for my unit every year for Thanksgiving potluck and another co-worker would deep fry and drop them off. They were some of the most delicious turkeys I’ve ever tasted!

I’m not sure I have actually tasted one. (Although as much Food Network as we watch, I think a false memory or two may have crept in. smile)

I also want to do one on the grill rotisserie, but my wife gets very possessive when it comes to cooking that particular meal. grin She does make the most amazing mustard garlic mashed potatoes and succulent turkey though! (I generally get the “privilege” of doing dishes.  tongue rolleye)

Take care,

Sounds a lot like a rotator cuff issue I had several years ago. Got to the point that just the movements needed to get a shirt or a jacket on would leave me groaning in pain. Lost a lot of range of motion. Luckily it didn’t require surgery, just a year layoff from the gym and lots of physical therapy (mostly stretching and massage of the area).

I don’t really like fried foods.  I like fried turkey, but I always peel off the skin and throw it away.  It just makes me sick to my stomach.

Our skin is pretty effective at preventing mineral flow across it.  Otherwise, when we go into the ocean or worse Salt Lake, we’d have all the water sucked out of us or become pickled in brine.
