Popeye's deep-fried cajun turkey -- great!

A friend tipped me off to this; I had no idea that around Thanksgiving, you can get a fully-cooked, frozen deep-fried turkey at Popeyes. I picked one up and cooked it for dinner tonight, and it's a great place to get your Thanksgiving bird.

The turkey's about 10 lbs and took about two days to thaw in the fridge. It's nicely seasoned but not flamingly hot, and the deep frying gives it a well browned skin but it's not overly greasy or oily. The turkey's terrifically moist and juicy, very flavorful. A wee pricey at $40, but since it only takes about an hour and a half to cook, it's a nice timesaver.
