While it did work last year when I deep fried on the gas grill, sometimes the flame got out of control and when it was suggested that the runaway flame could maybe possibly ignite the gas line into the house and start the house on fire I thought I maybe possibly should come up with a different way to make cruschiki this year.
Cruschiki is a labor intensive thing so I went back to the corn fritters as a fry test. I kept the fryer in the kitchen. This model has a lid so that was part of the test - does it keep the smoke down?
The fryer works great as fryers go. It IS portable so that's good. But the lid concentrates the smoke to chimney like action and the smoke is still escaping into the kitchen. I rode my bike down to daughter's house to give some to her and when I came home and walked back into the house it was obvious someone had been deep frying. So. Gas grill frying is a thing of the past but the unit goes outside on a table. Cruschiki in a couple of weeks!
