Bend Fire has issued some safety reminders if you are planning to deep-fry your turkey this year. Most important, always use your fryer outdoors on a non-combustible, flat surface. Make sure an adult tends to the fryer at all times, and make sure they use proper protective gear. There are plenty other tips. You can find them at KBND.com. We also have a link to a turkey frying video that is a real eye-opener.
