I was reading lots of threads on smoking turkeys then deep frying them but most it seemed all of the threads I have read they aren't fully smoking/cooking the bird to say 165 then deep frying them. The birds are usually smoked for 1.5-2 hours for a smokey flavor then deep frying them to fully cook the bird. I am smoking a bunch of birds for people at work this weekend and one of the guys and I are going to experiement with a smoked then fried bird. I was planning on smoking all the birds to 165 ish then they will reheat on Thanksgiving day in the oven or roaster. Well if this guy deep fries his to reheat it how long do you think it would take? I'm thinking it won't take very long like around 5 minutes or so???? What do you think????? Usually they are cooked at around 375 for 2.5-3 minutes per lb if I remember right but if the bird is already cooked and all you are doing is heating it up then I wouldn't think it would take that long.
