The directions say to put the turkey in the pot and fill with water, two inches above the top of the turkey. Then remove the turkey to determine the amount of cooking oil to use, however the amount of water is two inches above the maximum fill line on the pot. It's only a 10 pound turkey, and when filled with water two inches above it's only about four inches from the very top of the pot. Can someone please help me with this thanksgiving turkey?
