Yep. Fire departments respond to more than a thousand fires a year caused by folks attempting to deep fry a turkey. Physics in action: displacement, hot oil, and the slightest amount of water or ice make for great "hold my beer and watch this" moments.

That's a misspelling...
Supposed to be "Fired Turkey".

Looking at the pic, I'd say they likely weren't doing turkeys, but instead were doing Cracklings.

It’s not really a Smoking topic but with American Thanksgiving coming up thought it was appropriate.

My friend fried one last weekend. His comes out the best. Brines with a spicy brine. He uses lower temp then most. 300 degees and 4 minutes a lb. He been doing them for many years and says the lower temp works better.
