comment How do I safely deep fry a turkey?
The day before or the morning of, I put the turkey in a clean plastic bag to keep it dry. Fill the pot with enough water to cover the turkey plus a little extra to fill the cavities (once the turkey is out of the bag). Remove and dry the turkey. Mark the pot on the outside. Dump and dry the pot. Fill the pot to the mark with the oil. This makes sure you do not have too much oil in the pot which can also lead to boil over.

comment Can I make cakes in a tagine?
Dutch oven recipes are an excellent idea as they will account for the higher humidity level in the Tagine than normal cake done in an oven.

comment Reducing the saltiness of commercially prepared seasoning
Ok, so why not take those packets and add them to your own mix? That would thin out the sodium and the supplied packets would not go to waste. It might also help to retain the original flavor some.

comment What to do with a Sizzler?
The key for the Pittsburg steak is as you mentioned the caramelization. The seasoning includes a little sugar to help that along.
