Spill it!!!

OK the gravy.

The bottom of the Chook deep fryers has a thin collector. At the end of each day the crap at the bottom of the fryer was collected and put into the old style gravy mixers. These would then be 'fined' down and mixed with the gravy bag bix to create the gravy.

The problem is, sometimes you would get some of the lard blocks which hadn't melted find their way into the collector as well as the odd loose feather and bone. Not to mention the sweat from people standing over the deep fryer.

And no the secret herbs and spices were not secret at all. They were listed on the silver herb bags.

NOW YOU DON"T WANT TO ASK ABOUT THE CHICKEN!

Ok...the chicken. The old 7-10-7 method.

Turn it in the gravy 7 times, pat it 10 times. then spin it 7 times again.

problem - mind you this was the late 80's so OH&S may have caught up with them.

The flour/egg mix unused from the previous day, curdling under the effects of dripping blood was covered and used again the following day. The bottom of the chook sink resembled a massacre with a combination of bits, guts, and blood. Although they cleaned everything else this was rarely cleaned as they topped up the mix every day.

Did you never get a piece of chook with a wierd crumby thing hanging off it that may have appeared a bit reddish?

If so, then you've eaten crap that may be a few days old and the only thing that stopped you getting food poisoning is the 7 day old lard that killed all the bacteria.

NOW DON'T ASK ABOUT THE FREEZERS

Are you sure..you may not want to go back.

PS: This is all serious..exaggerated a bit but serious...

The freezer floors were always wet, but not with water, instead with dripping blood from the chooks that were piled on pallets 5-6 high. It wasn't a freezer as such as the chooks were delivered semi frozen so they were not 'hard' in there. The bags would have air holes (for what reason I have no idea as the chooks were already dead). Anyway the blodd would drip down the pallets and onto the floor.

If the flour pit was a massacre this was like something out of the Polpot era.

BUT DON'T ASK ABOUT THE FRIES

:lol: Damn straight. Nothing like a good chip from KFC, soggification to the max!

Hate it when their hot and crisp... I prefer them warm and soggy.

This forum requires that you wait 60 seconds between chips. Please eat again in 6 seconds.
