    Turkey Fryers used for Canning

    Fri Jul 09, 2010 4:59 pm Groupie
    I do waterbath canning and was wondering if anyone used a turkey fryer for canning. I know my parents do WBC outside but I think they use a propane camping stove for their second canner. I think the turkey fryer looks more compact and with heat under the whole bottom. And would there be a difference between the electric and gas ones?

    I seen your posting in another forum about your new turkey fryer so it got me thinking about using it as a canner too.

    You can use any vessel for water bath canning as long as you can get it hot enough and it will cover you jar tops 1 to 2 inches. In reality, you want it a little deeper than the minimum unless you want water splashed all over your cook-top.
    When doing a smaller batch, I use a smaller stock pot.
    Consider covering it - water always boils faster in a covered pot.
    With respect to a turkey cooker, be real careful not to knock the full pot of boiling water off the very small top - potential for very nasty burns.

    I think the turkey fryer would be wonderful. Just keep away from pets, children etc. Wouldn't want it to be knocked over, as Jim said.

    My hopes of getting a turkey fryer has kinda gone out the window. I might not be able to afford any fruit to can either. The starter went on my vehicle so we have to get that repaired. icon_cry.gif Since I am out of work right now until the start of the new school year and hubby isn't working too it is going to be a stretch until EI kicks in.
