Deep Fried Prime Rib:
Ham is great this way, we have also done boneless pork loins, have also done a hunk of beef, don't remember the cut though. But something I like is cut up pieces of beef and pork into small chunks like you might do for stew, and season them and fry have some sauce to dip them in and you are set, maybe a few adult beverages also.
I don't have a "big" deep fryer, but when you do a large hunk of beef or pork, how do you know when to pull it out, or do you remove--check temp--put back in, etc, etc.....
You obviously can't probe it, like in a smoker.
Since there is no playbook for frying a ham we decided to go about 3 1/2 to 4 minutes per pound. We have a little leeway for the fact the ham is pre-cooked. We were trying for about 140-145 final temp and hit that in a little over an hour. From the pic, you can see we have a basket, so we'll just pull it up for a second and shove meat thermometer in it. Gloves are recommended BIG TIME for lowering and raising the meat into the oil.
