These were good, my first shot at frying pickles. I would have added more flour to thicken the batter,but they were good as is. LOVED the sauce, very oniony and garlicky!

I have been craving these things for a very very long time. Just the recipe I was looking for! I added 2 cups of flour and it was a little thick so I had to add more beer. I would say 1 1/2 cups of flour would be perfect! Thanks so much for sharing this awesome recipe! :)
