While they may have built a dynasty around duck hunting, the Robertson family also knows a thing or two about deep-frying a Thanksgiving turkey.

Based on data from State Farm, more cooking fires occur on Thanksgiving than any other day of the year. The good news is that State Farm cooking fire claims on Thanksgiving Day have been reduced from 66 claims in 2010 to 29 claims in 2012, the lowest number of claims in a decade.

November is the number one month for grease and cooking related fire and December is the second highest month.
