Do you own an outdoor turkey fryer? I don't only because the outdoor fryers look so dangerous in my opinion. I am sure they are safe but since I have little kids I get a bit nervous frying something outside in a fryer. I am always afraid one of the kids will bump into it and tip it over. So needless to say I have never deep fried a turkey before.

Recently I was contacted by Masterbuilt to see if I wanted to test out their new Butterball Indoor Electric Turkey Fryer. I was so excited an indoor turkey fryer now that was right up my alley. After visiting the Masterbuilt website I knew just the recipe I wanted to make. The recipe I decided on was for a Low Country Shrimp Boil. You see I have wanted to do a shrimp boil for a quite some awhile so the timing couldn't be more perfect.

I was so amazed that not only could you use this indoor fryer to fry a turkey, but it also boils and steams food as well. I think the boil and steam feature is my favorite part of the whole fryer. Well not to mention that I can use it indoors without a flame source. Now I don't have to worry about my kids accidentally bumping into the fryer and tipping it over or someone getting burned. Below is a list of features for this wonderful turkey fryer.


The Butterball Turkey Fryer from Masterbuilt:

? The fryer is retailed at $159.96
? Adjustable thermostat temperature control
? Stainless steel construction
? Porcelain-coated inner pot
? Digital timer
? Folding lid with window and filter
? Cooking basket with drain clip
? Drain Valve for easy cleaning
? Saves on oil - uses 1/3 less than conventional turkey fryers
? It can feed up to 8 people when frying a 14 lb turkey (max turkey limit)
? The fryer can also be used with chicken, and can boil and steam food instead of frying Ü

I also am including a link to Johns Video so you can see the in's and outs of using the Butterball Electric Turkey Fryer. This video helped me out so much. It really put my mind at ease when I used the indoor fryer for the first time. I have to say it was a lot easier than I thought it would be.

The Turkey Fryer also comes with a "Dadgum That's Good Cookbook" by John McLemore, the CEO of Masterbuilt. This cookbook is filled with a variety of recipes that can be prepared in the indoor electric turkey fryer.

Here is just a sample of recipes. Fried wings, steamed sesame chicken & vegetables, steamed crab legs, pumpkin fritters, deep fried mini pecan pies, chowders, ribs, lemon pepper chicken and even boiled peanuts.

Since I chose to do a shrimp boil I have included some step by step photos of just how easy the whole process was. I was so excited because I did 90% of the recipe all by myself. So trust me if I can do it anyone can. Let's get started........

Fill the butterball indoor fryer to the max line with water. Place the seasoning bags in the basket. Set the heat to 375 and bring the water to a boil. (about 20 minutes) Add the whole potatoes to the basket and lower into the water carefully; boil 12 minutes.

Add the corn to the potatoes and boil an additional 9 minutes. Add the sausage to the potatoes and corn and continue boiling for 9 more minutes. Lastly add the shrimp. Boil for a additional 3-5 minutes or until the shrimp is pink. Total cooking time for the shrimp boil is 33-35 minutes. Lift the basket from the hot water hooking the basket to the drain clip.

Allow country boil to drain and then serve hot. That's it a Low Country Shrimp Boil in about 30 minutes who wouldn't love that. We were so excited at how good the shrimp boil turned out that we packed up half of it and surprised our friends. They were just as excited as we were that it only took 35 minutes for the shrimp boil.

Done it a dozen times and the family loves it. I usually top it off with snow crab legs....
