Fill fryer pot with oil and heat to 400°F. Place turkey in fry basket and slowly lower basket into oil. Fry turkey about 3 1/2 minutes per pound (about 35 to 42 minutes for a 10- to 12-pound turkey). When turkey is done, juices should run clear when thigh is pierced with a fork and reach a minimum internal cooking temperature of 180°F (measured in thigh).
Hang basket from fryer hook to drain. Remove turkey from hook and place in large, clean pan. Let stand 15 minutes before slicing.
