A comment on Thermapens

Frying some shrimp now, the oil is just getting hot.  Serving with rice cooked in broth derived from a BGE cooked chicken, so if it turns out worthy of sharing I will post the cook in the OT forum.

Anyway, it occurred to me to share that since I got a Thermapen and actually know the temperature of my oil all my fried foods are turning out much better.

    When you say fry you mean deep fry or pan fry? Just curious.

    Mostly useful for deep frying, like french fries or tonight's shrimp.

    I agree on the oil thing. Fried up tater tots tonight. My wife tried to drop them in and I said "Wait a sec". I checked the temp and it was 240. Thanks, Thermapen!

    Good advice Doc. A must if you are using the egg to heat oil. I even use the Thermapen to check my deep fryer, so far they always agree.

    Umm.. Naked wiz... Let's put aside the use of a charcoal cooker for a second.. (

    :-O. I'm instead going to point out the pine straw you are using as a base for your grill, which is directly next to your house... This apparent lack of judgement coming from the famed grand poohbah of charcoal? [-X [-X X_X X_X
