Cajun Deep Fried Turkey

10 gallons Peanut Oil -- or oil of choice
10 pounds Turkey -- (up to 15 pounds)
6 teaspoons Salt
6 teaspoons Paprika
6 teaspoons White Pepper
6 teaspoons Cayenne
6 teaspoons Accent® seasoning mix -- (optional)
16 ounces Crab Boil concentrate

Rinse turkey inside and out. Mix 1 part crab boil concentrate to 4 parts water. Combine
dry ingredients with crab boil solution. Adjust seasoning to taste. Inject turkey
(approximately 2" apart) with mixture using syringe (available from gourmet kitchen stores
or medical supply stores.) Cover turkey with foil and refrigerate over night. Heat oil to 350
degrees F. CAUTION: Use a grease thermometer to monitor the oil. It may ignite if the
temperature goes beyond 375 degrees F. Put turkey in basket and CAREFULLY lower it
into the pot. Cook 5 minutes per pound. Check in 1 hour using a meat thermometer.
