Cleaning Deep-Frying Oil Using Gelatin

Saw this come through my feed today:

https://www.seriouseats.com/2016/06/clean-cooking-oil-with-gelatin-technique.html

It's via Kenji.  

If you do any amount of frying, this is worth trying I think.

    It would certainly be worth trying after frying a turkey 👍

    The greatest barrier against all wisdom, the stronghold against knowledge itself, is the single thought, in ones mind, that they already have it all figured out.

    Just saw that today. And timely, too - just fried up some stuff yesterday, and have a big jar of oil to clean up.

    Kinda sounds like the same process of using gelatin to clarify home brewed beer before bottling! Guess that gelatin loves those proteins, huh?

    What kind of smokewood do you think goes with gelatin?  Hickory or Mesquite?

    I do not have any broken or spare parts for any size egg.

    Depends on what you fried.  I’d go with alder for fish fry chud.  Maybe a fruitwood for turkey.

    Yeah you'd have to take out some of the sriracha and ketchup you have in there, along with all of the KY.

    I tried it. Seems to work as advertised, but I was somewhat underwhelmed.

    Only had a pint or so to deal with. For the time and effort involved, I could have just poured it through a coffee filter, and called it done. 

    May be worthwhile,  if you've got a larger volume of oil to clean up.

    You lost a flagger.  Only 1 flag on this post.  Your entourage is slipping.

    I think someone is really just trying to prevent me from reaching 30k points, because that's when you get the free BGE candles.

    It's a lie.  When I hit 30K, they gave me a puppy.
