The thread on fried corn brought this to mind,here is something I saved from the BBQ Forum a while back. Haven't tried it yet but someday I'll get around to it
Deep fried corn
There is a family sports type bar and grill in Cooper City, FL a suburb or Ft. Lauderdale name Land Lubbers. They do deep fried corn and it is fantabulous, their wings are even better. All they do is do nothing but deep fry the cobs with nothing on them and serve them with melted butter! It appears they take them out when they are a nicely browned!

I experimented with deep fried corn on the cob one time when I was cooking up some wings. I ended up doing pickles, both whole and slices and they turned out good too. I was using several different kinds of batters but it seems like this one was the best. If it looks familiar, it's from Top Secret Recipes and is the equivalent to KFC Honey Wings. When you dip into the flour first, then the milk and egg and then back into the flour, it makes the breading thicker.
1 egg, beaten
1 cup milk
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoons salt
3/4 teaspoon pepper
3/4 teaspoon MSG
While oil is heating to 350 deg, combine the beaten egg with the milk in a small bowl. In another small bowl, combine the flour, salt, pepper and MSG. Dip each wing, corn on the cob, pickle, etc. first in the flour mixture, then into the milk and egg mixture, and back into the flour. For wings, you'll cook for 9-12 minutes, for corn on the cob or pickles, just cook until the breading turns a nice golden brown.
