  • Daniel....That beer keg was made from Stainless Steel. As loath as I am to impose,... restoring those 'homemade pots' would be an easy task to honor your ancestor's efforts. JMHO....~Eli.

  • The first thing I thought when you brought out those keg pots was "oh man! what a great idea for our huge crab boils at our fish camp at the lake! I gotta make me some of those!!" LOVE IT!!!

  • I think I would hooked up the old burners first to see what you had before replacing. Not much that can go wrong with a gas burner. I have about 1/2 doz that came out of old tobacco barnes in Carolina. Either way you got a good one !

  • Put some wheels on it and then some short handles on the opposite end so you can easily move it around. Also, put a small ring in the bottom to secure the propane bottle.

    Deb AnnasDeb Annas3 oy oldin
  • Nice old piece of history! Those burners were probably that big because they used bigger pots for their cooking and frying! Your little burners would have taken forever to heat up the size pots grandpa used!! Also the old burners remind me of the ones they have in Chinese Restaurant stoves, massive and hot! Looking good! God Bless!

  • Another type of outdoor fish event You mentioned a crawfish boil & I wondered how close a couple of 40lbs bags of crawfish would be to y'all? The other ones would be a clam bake & lobster An old Maine lobsterman method Local history project for the kiddos, see if any of the names can be located from the articles & collect stories from past Arms family fish fries. Need a Noodling story or two imo. Keep Well

  • I love history ‼️♥️ I’m Puerto Rican/ Italian & Native... food was a way to connect to our “Ancestors” & to teach/share that with newer generations.. I feel it’s a lost tradition in this modern day... THANK YOU for opening your Arms history with us ‼️‼️🧡💚💜🧡💚💜

  • One suggestion to add to your fish fryer is a set of wheels with brakes will it easier to move when cleaning the patio

  • Great video. If you have a shop in your area that makes tops for boats they sew you up a heavy canvas cover for that cooker that will make it easier to look at.

  • For cleaning the keg halves I'd recommend filling them with warm water and soaking them with laundry powder with added bleach. 2-3 Tablespoons + a couple of hours should do the job. The enzymes need time. Less scrubbing needed. Works wonders on my stainless steel roasters after making ossubuco milanese or any other long time roasting dinner and cleans up all the nasty organic stuff.... And: cool project. I like that. Looks neat, too!

  • Bless You, on that sneeze, at our church fall festival, we have a fish-fry booth in which we have 3 separate burners and all use oil in them. At the end of the festival, we used 18 gallons for the 2/day & 3/night it runs, peanut oil in 2 of them & veggie oil in the 3rd one for those that don't want peanut oil.

  • MmmmMmm fried turkey, whole fried chickens, chicharron pork but fried fish will change taste of oil. Clean taste by french fries. Clean oil by making bucket filter of special charcoal and filter material. Mmm Mmm. Best device for submerging was a chained wire bucket and lower slowly. Always test the amount of oil needed before lowering Delectables. We had a teacher's husband make them for a Thanksgiving late luncheon in school, potluck style NYC

  • Wow lots of fish they knew how to do it, Are you in any of those pictures Daniel thx for sharing. What happen to Houston’s lip was he chasing girls at school lol 😂

  • That’s so cool to have a piece of family history like that. Add a set of heavy duty wheels on the left legs and an extended handle on the right and it’ll be perfect! I’m sure yo already had that in mind though!

  • Great thing to restore! The memories connected to it! It would also make a great outside burner to do canning on if the BTU's are correct! Dual purpose.
