Going to try to brine a Turkey this year. Got a good recipe. Can you inject the brine solution before frying without blowing yourself up?

You can brine it of course, but I wouldn't inject the solution into the turkey. Its generally superficial and when it get hot will probably case a boil off and make it pop. So I would brine it, pat dry then deep fry.

I've never deep fried an entire turkey but I have brined them before cutting and deep frying portions and they are more moist going in, that does cause a lot of extra oil splashes.

AFAIK store bought turkeys are already injected and I've never had a problem in the deep-fryer
