W ARNING

1.The fryer must be located on a level surface.

2.This is an outdoor cooking appliance only. Use only outdoors.

3.Never leave the fryer unattended. If fryers aren't watched care-

fully, the

oil will

continue to heat until it catches fire.

Never

move cooker

while in

use or hot.

 

4.A fire can occur from overheated oil or grease.

5.Oil may heat faster than expected.

6.Use a thermometer to monitor oil temperature.

7. Do not use appliance on or near combustible surfaces, wood

decks, storage sheds, garages, shrubbery, trees, houses, etc...

8.Do not cover the pot when heating oil or grease.

9.Should grease fire occur, turn off the gas and cover the pot with the lid.

10.Check every fitting for gas leaks before each use.

11.Never stand over burner while lighting; this could result in serious injury. Carefully follow lighting instructions.

12.This cooker is equipped to operate on propane (LP) gas only from

a refillable cylinder certified by DOT (Department of

Transpor-

tation).

 

13. Never let children or pets near the fryer when in use. Even

after

use, never allow children or pets near the turkey fryer.

The oil

inside the cooking pot can remain dangerously hot, hours after use.

14.Never place empty containers over an open flame.

15.Do not attempt to change valve depth into burner or reassemble parts.

16.Never store propane tank in an enclosed area. If cooker is stored in doors after use, disconnect the propane tank for outdoor storage.

17. The regulator and hose assembly provided with this cooker must

be used, no substitutions. Other regulators or no regulator used at all could result in dangerous gas leakage and improper burner performance.

18.Never install or remove the propane tank while cooker is in use or too hot to touch.

19.Always inspect hose kit before each use. Protect hose from cuts, heat or abrasions. Never use a hose that indicates signs of cracking or damage.

20.Never allow hose to contact any part of the cooker while in use or still hot. Place propane tank from cooker so that the hose length

will not be in the way. Keep all connections and fittings clean, replace any damaged parts.

21.Never store the propane tank near high heat, open flames, direct sunlight or where high temperature exist.

CHECK FOR GAS LEAKS

Apply gas detector fluid (or soapy dishwashing solution) on all connections, especially around the regulator, valve and POL-cylinderconnection. Any bubbles that appear indicate a gas leak. If so, turn off gas and tighten the fitting. If a leak persists, pipe thread compound may be needed on the threads.

NEVER USE

A FLAME T O CHECK FOR GAS LEAKS.

The Superb Turkey Fryer is

the affordable choice for frying whole

turkeys and chickens. The narrow diameter requires less oil than a stan-

dard stockpot. The raised rack allows the oil to circulate and keeps the

turkey off the bottom to prevent

burning. This fryer can also be used as

a regular stockpot for all types

of cooking.

It is recommended that you "season" the pot before use. Pour a small amount of vegetable oil in the pot and spread it around with a paper towel until the entire bottom and sides are coated and let stand for 10 minutes. Wash out the interior and it is ready for use.

Preparation and Cooking of Whole Fried Turkey

Caution: Do not use a kitchen stove for frying whole fried turkey with this unit. This unit is designed for use on outdoor gas cookers. Superb recommends the Pronto Flame Cooker, Model NumberHP-100.Be sure

to read and follow all instructions provided with your outdoor gas cooker and propane tank.

Ingredients:

Turkey, up to 16 pounds

Peanut Oil or Cottonseed Oil:

For a 10-12pound turkey use 1 1/2 - 2 gallons

For a 13-16pound turkey use 2 1/2 - 3 gallons

1 quart water

1 tablespoon garlic powder

1/2 stick butter

1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

3 teaspoon Creole seasoning

If uncertain about how much peanut oil to use, place turkey in pot and fill with water until turkey is covered. The amount of water used corresponds

to the amount of oil needed.

Preparation:

Make sure the the turkey is completely thawed and be careful with marinades. Oil and water don't mix, and water causes oil to spill over, causing a fire or even an explosion hazard. A partially frozen turkey placed into the fryer can cause intense bubbling, forcing the oil to overflow. Clean and dry turkey inside and out; removing giblets and neck

and trimming away all excess fat. Make sure opening around the neck is clear.

The National Turkey Federation recommends refrigerator thawing and

to allow approximately 24 hours for every five pounds of bird thawed in the refrigerator.

Combine water, butter, garlic powder, cayenne pepper and Creole seasoning in microwave-safecontainer. Heat in microwave, then inject into breast and legs, spacing injections about an inch apart. The breasts will puff up. This can be done a day ahead.

Place turkey upside down on rack, with legs facing up. See Figure 3.

Cooking:

Following the instructions in your outdoor cooker owner's manual, light the outdoor gas cooker and set at a low flame.

If the cooking pot is overfilled with oil,

the oil may spill out when the turkey is

 

placed in the fryer.

 

 

• Use a deep fryer thermometer to main-

 

tain

frying temperature

of 350°F.

 

Control heat intensity with valve on the

 

outdoor gas cooker. If the oil begins to

 

smoke, reduce the heat! If oil overheats

 

it may spontaneously ignite.

 

 

• Keep

an all-purposefire

extinguisher

 

nearby. Never use water to extinguish a

Figure 1

grease fire. Remember to use your best

 

judgment when attempting to fight a fire. If the fire is manageable,

 

use an all-purposefire extinguisher. If the fire increases, immediate-

 

ly call 9-1-1for help.

 

 

Pour cooking oil into pot and attach thermometer to the top edge, making sure the stem of the thermometer is as far down as possible without touching the bottom of the pot.

Carefully place the pot on the cooker and

 

adjust the flame higher, but do not adjust

 

 

valve to full open.

 

 

 

 

Heat

oil to 350°F. Depending on the

 

 

amount of oil used, it may take from 15-

 

 

20 minutes for the oil to reach 350°F.

 

Caution:

 

It is recommended to shut off burn-

 

er

on cooking

unit before

lowering turkey

 

into pot. After the turkey is in the pot, relight

 

according

to

instructions

 

supplied

with

 

Pronto Flame Cooker and bring oil tempera-

 

ture back up to desired cooking temperature.

 

Caution:

 

When turkey

is

lowered

into the

Figure 2

hot

oil, it

will cause the

oil

to splatter. This

 

can cause severe burns, therefore, we recommend wearing work gloves,

a long-sleeveshirt and safety glasses.Wipe excess moisture from the outside of the turkey. This will reduce the splatter of oil.

• The turkey is ready to fry when the oil temperature reaches 350°F.

Grasp handle on lid.

Interlock hooks on lid into hooks on basket (See Figure 2).

Carefully place basket with turkey into cooking oil.

Hooks on basket will rest on top of pot.

Remove lid from basket.

 

Attention:

The lid CAN NOT be on pot while turkey is frying.

Inserting the

turkey will reduce the temperature of the oil. Slowly

 

increase the heat so that the temperature

 

 

of the oil will come back up to 350°F.

 

This will take several minutes. Monitor

 

 

the thermometer to maintain this temper-

 

 

ature.

(Windy

conditions may prevent

 

 

the temperature from returning to 350°.

 

 

If so, just add 3 - 4 minutes to overall

 

cooking time).

 

 

Fry

turkey

for 3 - 3 1/2 minutes

per

 

pound or until golden brown. (Example:

Figure 3

 

A 15 pound turkey will take between 45

to 55 minutes to cook).

Note: While cooking, hot oil will spew up through the turkey's body like a fountain.

Caution: Turkey must be monitored at all times. DO NOT leave pot and cooker unattended while in use. DO NOT use lid while frying. Use lid only when the pot is being used for other types of cooking, such as soups, stews or gumbos.

When turkey is done, turn cooker off at the shut off valve and at the gas supply (LP tank or other source).

Leave pot on cooker.

Grasp handle on lid.

Interlock hooks on lid into hooks on basket.

Carefully remove basket with turkey from cooking oil.

Place basket with turkey on absorbent paper and allow turkey to drain for a few minutes (See Figure 3).

Carefully remove turkey from basket and place on platter ...

THEN ENJOY!
