Glen and Annah Dunaway Fish Frying System

In the last blog, I described the fish fryer that our family used for years and years as I was growing up to fry fish for family gatherings. I expect it has also been used on a sandbar or two to fry up a day’s catch for some primitive camping trips on the Escatawpa, as well.

Below are two diagrams that explain how this unique fryer worked.

This unique system remains in our family. Unfortunately, life got busy, and we have seldom blown off the spider webs and put a fire under it to cook some fish. Damn shame. Now that my brother Bill, in whose garage, it has been gathering dust and arachnids, and I are both retired, it sure seems like now is a really good time for another fish fry.
