How do you deep fry a turkey? Other than the requisite pot, what temp. and how many minutes per lb? Any suggested spices and how to apply and at what stage?

This is definitely an outdoor activity. Apparently several houses have burnt to the ground in New Orleans when this recipe was tried inside.
There are many more such pages.

A friend of mine did this a few weeks ago at a holiday party-injected marinades, and it was very good. Took a little over an hour, IIRC.

I did it once, in my driveway. A gravel driveway covered with snow.
Be prepared for a mess. And if you have dogs, kids running around, you will need to 'guard' the deep fryer. I ended up buiding a quick fence around mine. And still had to keep an eye on it.
When I was done, I ended up building a fire (wood) on the drive to get rid of all the oil that splattered out.
