    Those are great. We use the spiral cut hams. They butterfly out all nice and crispy... mmmm.

    Man, slap some of that on a buttered biscuit and start eating.
  3. Looks AMAZING and way to represent NE Ohio LOL

    I've tried deep fried turkey, but never a ham. That looks incredible. I gotta try it sometime.
  8. I wonder what a deep fried prime rib would be like.

    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.

    Dang, that's something new and looks awfully good!  Thanks for sharing.  Forwarding this to my dad, he's the one with the turkey fryer and loves ham as much as anybody I know.

    As for temp we fry in the basket so it easy to lift and check for doneness, the boneless pork loin was around 6 min a pound chunks of beef were similar.
  17. 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.
