Yeah, they run on LP. Just saw the Target ad for Sun. I think they have a kit with the oil for 30 bucks starting tomorrow.
Never used one before but am going to try it this year.
The kicker is that the oil is expensive.

biggest problems come from using too much oil or if the bird is frozen. Frozen=water. water and hot oil=explosive combination. When used EXACTLY as instructed, you are okay. But keep in mind, it's 5 gallons of boiling hot oil sitting in a big pot. Keep people, especially kids, away from the frier.

UL tests, especially for that type of stuff, is generally to warn people that you have to be careful when using them. You'd think that it would be common sense, but since people always get burned with them, the message isn't getting through.

The way I use mine is to put the turkey in first and then fill it with water to about an inch above the turkey so it is completely submerged. Then take out the turkey and "mark" where your water line is. Dump out the water and dry the turkey as well as the fryer completely. Fill the fryer back up to the "mark" with the oil, (peanut oil works the best). Turn on your burner and let the oil get to the desired temp. Carefully and SLOWLY lower your turkey into the oil. (It will boil and splatter, so make sure your hands and arms are covered). The temp of the oil will drop but DO NOT adjust your heat. It will come back to the desired temp within a few minutes. Once the turkey is submerged and you have the correct temp. let it cook, checking it occasionaly as to not to burn it and to re-check your temp. Cook it for the approx. time based on the weight of your turkey and when it is all done, sit back and enjoy the most delicious, juicy turkey you have ever had.

seeing as how I've seen video of people shoving bottle rockets up their asses, I would have to say that turkey frying is relatively safe.

now, a bottle rocket up a turkey's ass? that's safe.
