    I have a analog bulb style fry thermometer that I have used for several years but it's inconsistent. Sometimes my frys come out a little greasy because if under-temp oil. Now that I have digital probe I'm wondering if I can use it in fry oil and if so, should I use the bbq or the meat probe. It's lent now and fish fry time!

    I never have used that, but I have used an instant read like my Thermapen. I'd go with the longer meat probe if you go that route.

    Also, the higher the grease temp, the more grease that goes into the food due to more water being displaced OUT the food, which in turn gets replaced with the grease/oil.

    And yes, that soggy surface ain't good to bite down on. Just don't let someone tell you the food is less greasy because of hotter cooking oil.

      • Beer, Tequila, and Vodka drinks go hand in hand with cooking and grilling. However, I HATE Corona. I'd rather have a Frontal Lobotomy than that bottle in front of me! Worst tasting beer of all time.

        Broil King Sovereign XL, Grill Grates all the way, Maverick PT100, A-Maze-N 12" tube smoker, ThermoPro TP-12 wireless.
        Joule Sous Vide; works great.

        I'm psychic. I see a KBQ in my not so distant future....

      The Mavrick LT-03 infrared thermometer is my favorite way of measuring oil temp. Especially with the skillet fry.

        If I had an infrared I don't think I would ever be able to put it down.

        They are certainly proof that magic exist.
