More deep fried turkey... can you stuff it?

My wife heard somewhere that turkey stuffing is fantastic if you stuff the bird and then deep fry the bird, stuffing and all. I've looked around the web, including Chowhound, of course, and no one mentions the stuffing in any "deep fried turkey" information. So my guess would be that this kind of turkey prep leaves stuffing out of it. Well, what's the deal?

    No , do not stuff it. The cooking process requires that the oil flows up through the cavity.

      You definately cannot stuff a turkey that you plan to fry. The bird will not cook properly and will be raw on the inside and burnt on the outside.
