Default Let's talk deep fryers

I'm putting together my outdoor kitchen to final finish the house off after 5 years here. I have a Large Traeger, large gas grill and 36" gas griddle that will all be built in arranged in a horseshoe. I have been considering a gas fryer or possible a large electric countertop model. I have had Fry Daddies and such in the past but they are always just too small.

My biggest question is what to do with the oil? I would only use it a few times a year and looking at a gallon+ of oil to fill each time. Has anyone had luck freezing? How long can it store? Other solutions..... Other than use to start the fire pit?

I haven't done any research, thought I would ask here first.

My understanding is peanut oil will stay re-useable and not go rancid much longer than lard based oil. I'd start my research there. Maybe there is a short order chef in the group that can point you in the right direction.

Can it be recycled?

I deep fry with vegetable oil and use it over several time's. I simply cool it, strain it back into a glass jar and stick it in a cabinet. When it get's to dark I dump it on the gravel driveway I have! You could probably flush it too.

For flavor peanut oil. Since you’re only using it a couple times a year. Just get aluminum tin pans throw them on your griddle and deep fry on that. Don’t overthink it a griddle Is the same thing as a stove top just without the pans. 😉🥃🇺🇸

A large cast iron skillet or chicken frier would be better than an flimsy aluminum pan.

Pick yourself up a stock pot the size you want to fry in and a candy thermometer or oil thermometer. You can put it on griddle or buy a propane burner if you want it off to the side. You can buy cast iron or aluminum, or whatever. You don’t have a change in cooking based on what you warm up the oil in. Cheap expensive doesnt really matter. A good thermometer is worth the investment though. Main thing is a burner that can keep your oil at a stable temp and quickly bring the temp back up after adding cold food to the hot oil.

Vegetable oils are organic. You can dump it on your compost pile.

We let the oil cool then pour it back into crisco cans and keep in the fridge. Then replace once a year or so or when it gets to dark.

I totally agree, I would let it cool and then filter all of the sediment out your oil. This what causes your oil to turn dark. Then pour into your containers and freeze. Very easy to reuse.
