Here's the recipe Steve uses for frying turkeys from Tony Chachere's website…

3-5 Gals. Peanut Oil (Or Oil of Your Choosing)
1 12 Lb. Turkey
Tony Chachere’s Creole Butter Injectable Marinade
Tony Chachere’s Original Creole Seasoning

1: Prepare turkey fryer, or very large stock pot.
2: Fill fryer with no more than ¾ oil and heat to 350 degrees.
3:Make sure turkey is completely thawed.
4: Pat turkey dry with paper towels – turkey must be dry before frying.
5: Remove giblets from turkey.
6: Inject the turkey with Tony Chachere’s Creole Butter Injectable Marinade. Use as much as you’d like.
7: Be sure to space out the injection sites so the marinade goes throughout the entire turkey.
8: Lightly season the inside of the turkey with Tony Chachere’s Original Creole Seasoning.
9: Next, gently lift the skin of the bird up and use your hands to carefully massage Original Creole Seasoning under the skin.
10: Coat the outside skin of the turkey with Original Creole Seasoning.
11: Allow the turkey to sit until it reaches room temperature.
12: Carefully lower the turkey into the oil and allow it to fry for 3 minutes per pound, plus 5 minutes per bird, until the meat thermometer reads 165 degrees when inserted into the thickest part of the breast.
13: Carefully remove the turkey from the fryer and drain it on paper towels.
14: Allow bird to sit for 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
