The turkey pictured as my profile image is the unfried turkey. I cooked it in my oil less fryer. It turned out wonderful.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

The "unfried" turkey cooked in an oil-less fryer comes out tender and juicy on the inside with a deliciously crisp skin. We recommend injecting the turkey to really get flavor into the meat. The cooking process seals in all the flavor and moisture. The outcome is very close to a fried turkey without actually frying the turkey. Using the oil-less fryer outside frees up the kitchen oven for side dishes. We opted to inject the meat with a store-bought Creole butter and rub the turkey with olive oil and a little Creole seasoning. But customize your holiday turkey with flavors your family loves.
