  I like the consistancy of the batter to where it will stick to a spoon so you have to use the "2 spoon method". Take one spoon and scrape it into the grease off the other. You will have to play with that a little to get it where you want it.

  After you get the base where you like, then comes the fun of adding chilli powder, finely chopped onions, etc. ;)

My vote goes to the Tubercle. I mean he is from "Sweet Caroline"  ;D

I've found the best hushpuppies to come from south of the Mason-Dixon Line.  ;)

I like the bacon grease tip.  :)

Thanks for the confidence ;D

 Hush Puppies ain't nothing but little chunks of corn bread.

 Some day I might break down and pass along the ol' secret cornbread recipe.

 My daughter was 30 before I gave her the recipe. Still haven't given to my son or other daughter, they haven't proven themselves worthy yet.

 Hint: It has as much to do with techniqe as ingridients.

 And it ain't got nothing to to do with that Satan-sifted Spawn of Hell Jiffy Mix!

 It might be fun to do in 18th Century prose. ;)

I'd guess that a big part of it is treating it like buttermlik biscuits. Mix as few times as humanly possible, then WALK AWAY and do not touch save to dunk in oil.

I might just have to have myself a fish fry this weekend.
