Default Tell me about your deep fryer?

I do not fry a whole lot anymore, but when the family wants it, I usually go all out. Fried 4 lbs of snapper and 3 lbs of squash this evening. Set the burner up, fry the fish first then the squash then its all mediocre warm or cold.

I am thinking a dedicated deep fryer when I finish the outdoor kitchen, I need one. Any recomendations? Ones to stay away from? Have seen these quite a bit

I have a "Cajun Fryer" manufactured by R&V works out of Louisiana. It is the 4 gal version. You can order them factory direct from their website. They also sell them over at Buc-ees. I have fried anything and everything in it and it does an excellent job. The oil stays really clean and if you fry fish in it, you can immediately fry french fries or anything else for that matter and it won't taste fishy. It takes about 15 mins to get the oil up to temp. It is really easy to clean, it has a nice ball valve on the back side for draining the oil. When I ordered mine, it had some minor cosmetic damage in shipping. I didn't want to fool with sending it back but I did notify them about it. They sent me a box full of accessories and spare parts for my trouble Excellent fryer and excellent customer service.

Best accessory I have is my temp gun. Let's me make sure the temp is right and stays right. I think it was 20 bucks on amazon.

I have the same drier but single basket. And also have. A 2 basket r.v. Works. The single basket is all you need for 8 people. Works great in my outdoor kitchen

Good info, i did see those ones at Bucees thos weekend on way home. I just didnt stop to look at em, lol

Temp gun beats the heck out of a probe in the way.

Do these stay pretty consistant? Drop a batch of fish in does the temp drop much? I am guessing with a few gallons of oil in it it does not fluctuate much?

The Cajun Fryer is top notch.

The oil temp in the Cajun Fryer will stay consistent...the only thing that I've seen that affects it is frozen french fries but it recovers quickly. I doubt there is any setup that can survive frozen fries though.

I have the Cajun fryer and I have a bayou classic. They are built with the same design , but my Cajun fryer is a better built cooker. If you want performance get the Cajun fryer!!
