I love fried dill pickles. I put the pickles in a cheese cloth and wring out the excess juice until they are as dry as possible. I have put them on a dehydrater over night. It helps keep them crisp longer and they can be held in a warm oven for a bit...but still not for long. I also use the pickle slices that are sliced the length of the pickle instead of the little circles sometimes, they are worth the price when doing this. The hot sauce was a great addition. Yum!
