Partially frozen turkeys will cause the oil to bubble over, possibly covering the entire deep fryer in flames......If the fryer does bubble over or tip and spill hot oil, get away from it and don’t try dousing it with cold water. Move objects away from the oil and any fire and smother it with dirt or sand. Having a few buckets of these materials on hand helps you stay prepared in case something does go wrong.
Safe disposal of leftover cooking oils: Mix the cooking oils with unscented kitty litter, sawdust or sand to solidify the oil. Dispose of it in the trash. Avoid scented or disinfectant types of kitty litter as they can react with the oil and cause a fire (so ensure that a few buckets of sand are to hand).
