A few years ago my daughter’s in-laws from Brooklyn, NY came to Memphis for Thanksgiving.
 
To give them a taste of Southern cuisine, I decided to fry a turkey in addition to my conventionally roasted turkey. In effect, we had a taste panel where our 20 guests got to try both a roasted and fried turkey. There was no question that the fried turkey tasted better. It was more savory and had a richer flavor.
