For Michael Bush or other experts. I have scanned all the dipping posts and Michaels web site but I have a dipping question.
Should there be a film or coating on the outside? I have fried at 320F for 20 minutes till it quits foaming. When pulling out I can see wax sucking in but expected more film outside when done. It's all new woodenware.
Second question: How critical is the paraffin/rosin mix. I have a 160 gal seamless cooking pot on a turkey cooker. Started with 100# wax and 50# rosin but underestimated. I had to add 50# more wax to get things totally submerged but didn't have more rosin. So it's a 3:1 instead of a 2:1 mix. What will the consequences be if I was short rosin?
