Thanksgiving, The Bird: The Alton Browncast #21

      In the Good Eats episode about frying, he did exactly what he describes here and added 5 pounds of ice. This is under the auspices of a “partially frozen turkey”, however, which is throwing me off. He did something similar in a video on his Facebook page, however omitted the brown sugar and didn’t add ice at all. That was with a completely frozen turkey, though. He recommended a two-day soak to thaw/brine the turkey.

    Can I ask what you use to tie off the turkey for a fried turkey? You mention you tie the legs and the wings, but on your recipe on food network doesnt mention it. Also I am not positive what kind of twine is fry resistant.
