What would state and county fairs be without fried food?

At the Los Angeles County Fair, you can enjoy the usual midway delights, bungee jump, or ride a mechanical bull. But everyone comes for one thing, and one thing only — fried foods.

At the state fair in Texas, people can enjoy sampling deep fried beer and margaritas. Mark Garrison and Dan Pashman of The Sporkful podcast stop by to discuss whether we’ve officially reached the limits of frying.
