William Shatner Wants You To Avoid Fiery Disaster This Thanksgiving

To boldly go to the emergency room is a dismal way to spend your Thanksgiving.

Canadian sci fi icon William Shatner made this Turkey-frying public service announcement a couple years ago for State Farm Insurance.

If you’re going to deep-fry your bird, mind these three helpful tips from the short video:

  • Turn off the flame when you lower the turkey into the flaming hot oil
  • Make sure the bird is fully thawed before you put it in the fryer
  • Even if it’s cold and windy and raining and snowy, do your turkey-frying away from the house, the garage, the porch, and the deck.

Whether you prefer to fry, oven bake, or grill, there are lots of turkey recipes in the AllSpice recipe database.

And check out this big list of helpful Thanksgiving-themed articles and recipes.

Let’s be careful out there!
