Most turkeys fried at the same time: McKinnon's sets world record (PICS)
PORTSMOUTH, NH, USA -- Employees at the local McKinnon's Market & Super Butcher Shop successfully attempted to set the world record for most turkeys fried at the same time; it involved employees simultaneously dipping 20 turkeys into boiling hot peanut oil in the supermarket's parking lot at Southgate Plaza,
according to the World Record Academy: www.worldrecordacademy.com/.

The Guinness world record for the Most people dressed up as turkeys was set by 661 runners dressed as turkeys.
Guinness World Records states that the largest turkey weighed in at 86 pounds (39.09 kg).
Brothers and McKinnon's co-owners, Carl and Ed Penta, joined employees of the Portsmouth store for the turkey-frying demonstration.
Both said, not only was the event meant for customers to learn how to properly fry a turkey, but the event was also a way of giving back during this Thanksgiving season.

"Fried turkey is delicious," said Carl Penta. "We'll be donating all of them to the local homeless shelter."
Once completely fried, the employees will cut up the turkeys and the meat will be donated to Cross Roads House homeless shelter, he said.
