Have You Ever Deep Fried a Turkey for Thanksgiving?

I've never deep fried a turkey or eaten deep-fried turkey, and after watching these videos of turkey frying gone wrong (that is, they turn into fireballs Satan would be proud of) at Eat Me Daily, I'm thinking, "Yeah...I'm fine just going with the ol' roasting method." But then I see a photo of crispy, golden turkey, and I think this deep frying thing may not be such a bad idea.

Do you break out the turkey fryer for Thanksgiving—without incurring injury or calls to the local fire department?
