What quantity of vegetable oil is required to fry a turkey?

You will need four to five gallons of oil to cook a turkey that weighs between 12 and 14 pounds in a pot that has a capacity of 30 quarts. Fill the pot with peanut or canola oil until it reaches the mark you established earlier. After turning on the burner and setting it to a temperature where the heat is relatively high, heat the oil until the thermometer reads 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
