  1. 8 cups or more canola oil
  2. 1 cup whole buttermilk
  3. 1½ cups yellow cornmeal
  4. ½ cup all-purpose flour
  5. 2 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
  6. 4 cups garlic dill pickle slices, such as Wickles
  1. In a small heavy-bottomed Dutch oven, pour enough oil to fill halfway. Heat over medium-high heat to 350°.
  2. In a medium bowl, add buttermilk. In a shallow dish, combine cornmeal, flour, and 1 teaspoon salt. Working in batches, dip pickle slices into buttermilk, then into cornmeal mixture, tossing gently to coat.
  3. Fry in batches until golden brown, 2 or 3 minutes, adjusting heat if necessary. Drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with remaining 1 teaspoon salt.
