    That looks so good I am starting to hate you! LOL

    I have been cooking for more years than most of the folks here have lived.  I still have trouble keeping the batter/breading on fried peppers.

    How the heck did you do those???

    Thanks for your help.

    Good luck and good smoking.

    thanks for the props Bro...

    Use the dry – wet – dry method.

    Meaning the dry is your meal of your choice (corn meal, flour or a mix) the wet is a beaten egg and maybe some beer added in it.

    Set up 3 stations – 2 dishes with the dry ingredients in them and one with the wet stuff. Toss in the first dry… dip in the wet… toss in the last dry… then straight to the fryer… works every time.

    The 1st dip in the dry allows the egg wash stick to it than the last dry helps form the crunchy outside.

    Sounds like the old tri coating or anglaise method.  Some call it the standard coating.

    What were the coating ingredients you used?  My coating seems to stick to everything EXCEPT peppers.

    Do you allow the coating to dry on the peppers before you fry, or do you just dump them straight in from the coating process?

    My only luck with these has been with a traditional Japanese tempura, and that is a pain to make and use properly. Ice water, rice flour, make in small batches and repeat the process regularly.  You get the pic. 

    Sorry to be so much trouble to you, but those are just absolutely beautiful, and I have to learn to duplicate that!

    Good luck and good smoking.

    Man that stuff looks great. Excellent job!
  7. I'm with Venture on this one. My wife loves fried green tomatoes and it is a pain

    to use tempura. Everything else falls off in the cooking process, frustrating.

    Those look excellent by the way, great job.

    looks great, what's the dipping sauce?
  9. That looks great. I love fried green tomatoes. I just dip mine in flour and put in skillet with a tiny bit of olive oil. I fry them til nice and crispy and put on bread with lots of salt and pepper. I never heard of the fried banana peppers. I will have to steal a few of the peppers I am growing to make sweet hot mustard and try this out.

    Thanks.  I will have to do some research on that Kentucky Kernal stuff.  I prolly can't get it here, but I might be able to duplicate it.

    I brought this up because of the peppers.  I can get green tomatoes, eggplant, or almost anything else to hold my breading.  Peppers have always been my downfall.

    Again thanks for the info, thanks for the patience, and thanks for an absolutely beautiful QVIEW!

    Good luck and good smoking.

    Thanks slownlow.  I will sure check it out.  Problem is sometimes Wally sells different things in different regions.  I will check their web site, too.

    Thanks for the inputs from all.
