Help Me Learn How to Deep Fry a Turkey

Good Questions

Q: I've got Thanksgiving on the brain, and I'm thinking of going the deep fried turkey route this year. Last holiday season, I had the chance to try some deep fried turkey and it was awesomely moist and flavorful.

Are there any experienced turkey-frying readers that can share tips, tricks and stories? I'm somewhat fearful of undercooking the turkey, or accidentally burning down my neighborhood with a grease fire.
