Instructions

1
Rinse turkey with water. Remove neck and giblets; rinse again. Drain cavity well and pat turkey dry with paper towels.
2
Strain garlic marinade into a small bowl; add half jar of Cajun rub and whisk to blend.
3
Draw mixture into a turkey injector. Make 3 injections into each side of breast, 2 in each leg, 2 in each thigh and 1 in each meaty wing section.
4
Gently massage turkey to distribute marinade evenly. Rub remaining Cajun seasoning all over outside of turkey.
5
Set turkey aside 30 to 40 minutes while heating oil in fryer; this allows seasonings to permeate turkey and raises internal temperature slightly to reduce the amount of splatter during frying.
6
Heat oil in a large stockpot or turkey fryer to 375°F. Be sure there is enough room left in the fryer for the turkey.
7
Deep-fry turkey 3 1/2 minutes per pound (40 to 45 minutes); maintain oil temperature at 325°F during frying.
8
Remove turkey carefully from oil; drain. Insert a meat thermometer into the thickest part of the thigh; temperature should be at least 180°F for safe serving.
