Alton Brown Built the Outdoor Deep-Fry Rig of Your Dreams


Deep-fat-frying can turn into deep, burn-the-house-down trouble, which is why Alton Brown has created this hulking DIY apparatus to “safely control the immersion and retrieval of your fried edible.” If, like he does here, you have an eight-step fiberglass ladder, swivel pulleys, sash cord, optional emergency beacon, the space for it, and manual dexterity, you’re mere minutes away from frying large animals injury-free in your own DIY “fry derrick.”
