Cant remember but I think it is @Mickey that  is the deep fry king on the Mini
I wanna do some funnel cakes in a CI fry pan w/ Woo

how do you keep temp the same
I take it that if I keep the Egg temp at like 350° my oil should stay the same, Right?

    No. You have to take the temp of the oil. And when the first batch is done you have to let the oil get back to temp.

    You will not be able to take temp of Egg ( the top is open the whole time).

    Be sure and take pictures. Also please do not be next to the house or kids. Be careful.

    Thermapen also, its not too hard as once you hit a temp the vent door stays in the same spot. Good luck.

    Frying outside is best as no scents are lingering in the house
