Anyone know how much oil you need for the Butterball Turkey Fryer? I can't find my book and only used mine once.
There is a line on the inside of the inner container that identifies where to fill to. Sorry, I don't know the exact amount and it would depend on which model you have. You might try the company website as they often have various models shown and manuals electronically for them. Good luck.
The amount of oil is important esp don't overfill. You can put your turkey in the fryer and fill it with water. Remove the turkey and the volume of water is how much oil you need. Turkey should be dry when you add to hot oil. Be careful and good luck!0
there is a line on the fryer that you arnt supposed to go pass. what i do is put my turkey in the pot, then fill with water till i hit the mark.remove the turkey, and take a sharpie and mark where the water is. then empty the pot, and DRY WELL!!! then you can fill it with oil and start heating it and it will be correct amount. hth i have both the huge masterbuilt one and the squareish butterball fryers. i wish i knew someone to give the lg. one to, as i only used it a coupla times for i think maybe 3 yrs.i dont do the huge birds anymore. i was in bj's today and i swear the box for the butterball fryer is smaller than mine! i bought that one last year. are they making them smaller again? nascar fan
The 14 lb turkey fryer uses 2 gallons oil & the 20 lb fryer uses 2.75 gallons.

Thanks, everyone. I'll let you know how it turns out. I'm going to brine it and then use a rub.
Eee gads! Who on earth makes a nice, healthy turkey in a fryer??? What a way to make something so good for you, so fattening and artery clogging!! Then to add tons of salt for a brine?? It amazes me how unhealthy America eats. Just amazing.
