That's why I watch exercising on tv.

What's the "best" bluewater frying oil?

Also I like to multipurpose things on the boat. Should I run the oil through the engine for 100 hours first or the fryer for 100 hours first?

I drink heavily when I need extra smartness... I also get handsomer as a side benefit.

Thanks Dan, almost lost my dinner with that one.

We have a company here in Utah that makes diesel from frying oil. Cheap fuel. But your truck smells like McDonalds.

BTW, I didn't know Hunter made friers! Just think of all that chrome! I thought monks were not spost to be gaudy!

Aren't multihull deep friers much more versatile, especially the tri that can do a turkey in the center, with freedom fries and bacon cooking in the amas?

Good answer - thanks...

Run it through the crankcase first and then the fryer and then put it in the diesel tank - diesel exhaust will smell like chicken nuggets (or French people)

Triple utility - awesome!
