I have 2 el cheapo's, $25 or so on sale. Works good enough for me,it's the pot I change. I went to a Rest. Supply and got a (used) stock pot. They have any size you need and last MUCH longer...
And , yes the flavor is not in the infrared unit. The hot oil is the difference
(a friend has one).
When you get ready to fry the Turkey,do a volume measure first. Put enough water in the pot to just cover the Turkey.You'll have to wash the bird off anyhow, so use the pot in this step.
Mark the level on the outside(grease pencil,tape,scratch-whatever) and fill with oil to that mark when ready to fry.This prevents overflow fires when you immerse the Bird in the hot oil.
Make sure you have a 'GOOD' lifter and are holding on well as you lower it, slowly, into the Fryer. Do this slowly as you need your oil to be 360* to 370*F(this will help compensate for the temp. drop when the Turkey is added)and adjust to stay at 350*F during the cook(watch it carefully-like driving,no drinking here,too dangerous).
Cook the bird for 3min./lb.,the thighs IMT should be 160*F,the breast will be perfect.Do the same for Breast and bring to 160*F.
Good luck and
