picked up some oil today.

i picked up some oil from a Chinese restaurant today and tried to set it through my first strainer, which is a piece of a flannel sheet. the first 5 gallons of wvo i sent through it was left over v/o from our turkey fryer. it passed through the "filter" rather quickly and got a ton of junk out. now the oil from the Chinese restaurant is alot darker and ticker and would not go through the sheet, so i tried straining it through a window screen first then through the sheet, but it still wouldnt go through the sheet. are they maybe using some sort of different oil to fry that is not any good? or am i doing something wrong? is this oil ok to use eventually?

thanks guys,
brian

Try running it thru some of your wifes old pantyhose first (be sure she doesn't want them any more) then thru the flannel sheet. If you have a bunch of crispies pour it thru some screen wire before the pantyhose. Heating the oil will make it flow better.

The oil should be fine to use.
