The Deep Fryer Depot, a Sayville-based online retailer of countertop, stovetop and outdoor propane deep fryers, traces her culinary roots in a Friday post on the company website.
"…My pop was a griller, so I once was under the impression that the grill was a man's domain. Fire, meat, smoke, stabby, prongy, pokey things," Depot owner Jenifer S. Whelan wrote online.
The website sells dozens of cooking devices, including a line of Bayou Classic stovetops, barbecue smokers and cast iron Dutch ovens.
"Boy was I wrong. I got started outdoor cooking, and now you can't stop me. Not only do I have a grill, I have a BBQ smoker & an outdoor propane deep fryer."
