    I've always wanted to know all about fried pickles.
    When we still had our summer place in E. Tawas, there was a restaurant called "The Fried Pickle".
    It's now a bar, sans pickles. I should have asked more questions while I had the chance.>>

    Pretty much makes my point. A Google search returns thousands of discussions and recipes for fried pickles. Thankfully none of them here.

    Fried pickles are awesome. I've made some before. It's not rocket surgery...take a pickle, batter/bread it, fry it, eat it. Maybe we should have a room for how to deep fry things?

    I would love to see a garden forum, but completely understand why we never will.

    Fried pickles can occasionally be found at good BBQ joints. Had some great, and some "meh"

    BB, tongue was firmly "planted" in cheek.
    Just to expound a bit on the pickles. There must be different kinds of exotic oils to use, cuke varieties, favorite batter, etc. to make for lively discussion.
    Rocket surgery or not.
    Most people I know think you merely cut down a tree and throw the wood in a stove. Except here. There are many topics that shouldn't be rocket surgery, yet they're beat to death, and not just in a forum.
    Plenty of gardening forums around the webs.

    Everybody knows the best fried pickles are made from a rare variety of cucumber, which only grows in remote regions of Budapest, that has been pickled using salt harvested from the dead sea, blessed by a Rabbi of Danish descent, and fried in the rendered lard of a Peruvian wild boar at precisely 532::F, with the oil heated with 6 year seasoned oak.:rolleyes: Duh. ;)

    Well, OK, I guess this keeps it within the scope of Hearth.com...or, maybe not. Does that wild Peruvian wood burn well? :rolleyes:

    My Grammy used to say "If you're going to fry a pickle, then lay off the Bikram yoga"

    There was a period of unclarity there for a while

    This site does one thing very well. If it were to branch off too many ways it may end up doing none of them very well. I was chastised once for discussing coal stoves,which is much closer to wood stoves than a garden is.
