    Default EPIC Fail: Frozen Fries

    I love experimenting.

    Pretty much moved on from 3 forums so far, for a failure to at least "try" new methods.

    That aside, I lay out my Epic Failure tonight.

    Wife and Jr HS Daughter out school supply shopping. Limited time, somewhat unknown exact arrival for dinner.

    I shoot for 6:30pm, the norm.

    Boneless skinless boobs on the kettle, offset with hickory. Leave 15 minutes extra for chimney start (see farking dog trashing turkey fryer thread. Miss my 2 minute turbo starter chimney). Got them on.

    Can of corn and green beans, check, I'll toss in Micro. Texas toast, check, got the fry pan out. Goal here is to not heat up the house with stove/oven on.

    Mashed taters, Fawk Fork! I used the flakes and Complete pancake mix as breading on the chicken 2 weeks ago.

    Rice-a-Roni, just had it, and I'm running out of time. Zatarain's Dirty Rice, I'm outta time and ground beef.

    Looking.

    Looking.

    Hey, I have a bag of frozen french fries, and the label says 20 minutes at 425*. I have 25 minutes, and temp on kettle says 450*

    Go for it!

    One sheet aluminum, olive oil spray, fries.

    Second sheet, spray where it will hit the top of the fries, tuck in fries with a square "blanket" of foil. Its like a fry sandwich between two slices of foil, ends tucked off.

    30 minutes total at 425-450*

    EPIC STEAMED FAILURE, SMELLS LIKE, TASTES LIKE, BURNT OLIVE OIL, BUT WITH NO BURNING OR ANY COLOR OF ANY KIND ON THEM

    I had doubled down on the Texas Toast, as I never experiment without a backup.

    I first thought this was a first time, and might need temp/time practice.

    Nope.

    It was the last forking time. I'll just have to get the damn burner fixed so I can fry them normal.

    Baked/Steamed/Fried chit tastes like Baked/Steamed/Fried chit.

    Lesson learned: Fries are called fries for a reason. FRY THEM!!!

    I'll keep experimenting, just not with fries.

    For those that need pics, see the Okie Cow Chip Toss Competition thread. I'm sure it smelled better there

    Good God!

    Don't feel bad,I tried to smoke potato chips last week. Sliced some potatoes as thin as I could by hand, oiled a baking pan, and put in the smoker with a chicken at 350. Burnt cow chips is about what I got, but I ain't givin up! Gonna try again. Not sure what I'm gonna do dif, but I'm gonna try again. There is no defeat if we keep trying till we succeed!!!!!!!!!!

    Experiments have led to some tastey stuff ... this time the talley goes on the Tastes Like Chit column.

    Good try Bill! Good story too ... made me smile even. Makes me think of a thread I started one time (another site) on things we've all bombed.

    One more thing - Bubba's rule applies here. No pics - Never Happened

    done the fries on the q before with no problem, but obviously thats cause it can act like a oven, i think i'll wait to see you guys nail it in the smoker first before i try it, bill on a side note let me guess you hit the walmart for school supplys huh

    Just a thought, try a cold smoke for flavor and then deep fry.
