In my case, I strain it no matter what and reuse it later. I usually either use the oil for the next bird (I do several throughout the year, for myself and for friends who get a random craving in April, a birthday, etc.), or I use it in my deep fryer on foods that don't matter too much. I rarely use my deep fryer, so it works out well to just pour some, fry whatever I want, then either strain it again or toss it depending on it's condition.For those of you frying your bird. What do you do with the oil afterward and do you use the fryer only once or twice a year?
Because I only use 100% peanut oil, no matter what, I always get my money's worth out of it. Wasting peanut oil should be a crime.
