This Thanksgiving, how many.......

stories will be in your local newspaper about people blowing up their cars, garages, or houses because they tried to deep-fry a frozen turkey? I'm guessing at least three, here.

  • oh gosh, there is no telling here! TN is notorious for doing crazy/dumb stuff like that. Lol

  • Yeah,probably a few. Our local stations play a video on safe deep frying,but there's at least one garage/house fire evey year!

  • Probably not many here, we're in WA and not many people that i know of here fry their turkeys. We fry ours every year normally (wont this year because DH may not be here), but we are VERY careful, and we have an electric turkey fryer instead of the gas ones.

  • LOL six. We live in the suburbs of Washington DC so we could host a few more deep frying accidents. AS we have Baltimore, Virginia and Frederick close by as well.

  • well, this time of the year is always bad with people getting too excited. and it's unpredictable really but you can be sure there will be plenty reports of that nature.
