Hi Mrs. S-- I think that could probably work out just fine! Just make sure you pat down the bird with paper towel to remove any external moisture so it doesn't blow out in the hot oil. Happy Thanksgiving :)

Approach with extreme Caution...make sure you have an emergency plan in place and plenty of room. At least 10 to 20 feet away from combustilbles. Also dry the bird for a day in the fridge upside down near the end. Fluid can hang out along the backbone between the ribs. I also have a small fan blowing on the bird as it sets on the counter for an hour before taking the plunge.
