Default What's in your turkey fryer... besides standard turkey?

I got DH a turkey fryer and so far we've only done two chickens. We want to get the basket because we currently do boils on the stove.

What do you cook in yours? And quick tips? Oil and water uses? We keep talking about all kind of things we'd like to experiment with.

I make fresh menudo in my turkey frying pot because my wife absolute will not allow me to cook it inside the house. It can really smell up the place. I also do fresh deep fried chicharrones. Lots of the neighborhood men and some women come rambling over when the smell the pot a cooking, as the smells fill the neighborhood. My policy is bring the beer and you get a bowl of 'nudo or fresh chicharrone.

Were started to wonder about other things to fry after reminiscing about a trip years ago that included a stop somewhere in South Dakota. Can't remember the name right now but there was an outdoor historical musical followed by a "pitchfork barbeque". Hunks of beef stuck on pitchforks and stuck in vats of oil to fry, grab your sizzling cow hunk and some potato salad, beans and bread. The meat wasn't bad considering the push-em through service.

Just got us wondering what else we could do and hoped to hear from others.

Beef, pork, duck, could you do whole potatoes, letting our imaginations run wild.

I graduated to a big boy fryer several years ago. When I was still using a turkey burner I cooked French fries, pasta for a wedding, corn on the cob, chicken wings, and we did all of our canning on it outside.

I cut the top off of a beer keg for a bigger pot with built in handles. Where else can you get a 15 gallon, food grade stainless pot for a $10 deposit?

In case you are wondering, this is a big boy fryer. I have three of these. Pitco Frialator 65-80 lbs. Capacity Stainless Steel Gas Floor Fryer (Pitco Frialator PITY-1118), Fryers and Accessories from Fry Baskets to Cooking Oil Filtration
