Thanksgiving turkey is an American icon. Despite the prevalent online debates over dry- versus wet-brining methods, most home cooks are searching for one thing: deep-frying.
Cooking your bird to a fried crisp is the most-searched technique nationwide, according to Google. And the highest number of queries on how to deep-fry a turkey — perhaps unsurprisingly — come from deep Southern states: South Carolina, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama.
Though Americans love their fryers, a increasing number are concerned with health. “Vegan Thanksgiving” searches went up a whopping 35% from 2010-2011, and "gluten-free" searches went up 53%. The term “organic turkey” is a popular one as well, especially in Washington, Colorado, and Connecticut.
