Serve this Alabama-original, fried pickles, at your next barbecue for a fun twist on a favorite condiment. We also tried and loved fried Wickles-brand sweet-hot sliced pickles in this recipe. These Alabama-bred pickles are sold nationwide, but you can also order them from www.wickles.com.
Whisk together egg and next 3 ingredients in a large bowl; add 1 1/2 cups flour, and whisk until smooth.
Pour oil to a depth of 1 1/2 inches into a large heavy skillet or Dutch oven; heat over medium-high heat to 375°.
Dip pickle slices into batter, allowing excess batter to drip off. Fry pickles, in batches, 3 to 4 minutes or until golden. Drain and pat dry on paper towels; serve immediately with Spicy Ranch Dipping Sauce.
