I guess this belongs here...  I'm frying a turkey at a friends house on turkey day and they askedif it was possible to stuff it with bacon like you would wrap a roasted bird with bacon. So I figured maybe someone here knows.

Stuffing it with a bacon wrapped fatty sounds like an idea to try.  Never fried a turkey though, so just thinking out loud.

Wouldn't the Bacon cook too fast if u wrapped it? Like your idea Crash!

I like Crash's idea too, I want to hear the results. My thoughts are oil and fat are one in the same. If the bacon flavor is wanted just add bacon to the frying oil and it will accomplish it's magic as the oil is cooking and flavoring the bird no matter where it is set. The best fried chicken I have tasted she used peanut oil, butter, bacon grease and duck fat which had an amazing flavor combined with her basic rub and flour. Oils have a different impact on flavor than using the straight product. Sesame oil imparts a different flavor than the seeds and impacts a dish from different angles, bacon has a unique flavor yet its oil brings out a different result.
If poaching or braising think of the flavor of the product and when using oils think the flavor of the fat as in frying. Just my thoughts.
