    Default Whole Cajun Fried Clucker

    I thought about fryin' a turkey for Thanksgiving, but found it hard to justify the price of the oil for something I don't use that much. Besides, I'd never smoked one before so I decided to do that.

    While still craving fried bird, a friend hooked me up with some half priced peanut oil that was damaged but not leaking. Bingo!

    So I picked up a whole fryer and injected it with Creole butter marinade and coated with Cajun Shake. Let 'er sit in the fridge for several hours. The rest is in the pix.

    I had to pass the time some how...

    Not quite done...see pink spot...

    I've done a bunch of cluckers this way. I should be beyond making these mistakes. Oh well a little time in the oven got rid of the pinkies. Then it was very tasty!

    Nice looking chicken. I love deep fried turkeys but have not done one in a while. I have a full, never used container of Peanut Oil so I will do one but WHEN I don't know. I have probably done 10 or 12 and they are a real pain to do in my opinion they taste great. Wife loves them and has been hounding me for moths to do one. for posting your deep fried chicken.

    Great looking chicken!!! I have only had fried turkey once and it was so so. I don't think it was seasoned that well so it was kind of bland.
