The fish cooker

Speaking of contraptions, I've got one that I've been trying to find the right context to share.  It's a custom-welded fish cooker that the wife's grandparents have down in Tallahassee, FL.  On the day when the refrigerator is most full of leftovers, the family tradition is to have a fish fry.  Don't question, just enjoy it!
The fish cooker pictured here is welded out of stainless steel with a custom burner underneath.

I thought it was also interesting to note the fish-breading box pictured here that houses flour in a "well" underneath a plastic grate where the meat that you're going to cook sits on. Give it a shake, forget about dredging and splattering flour everywhere.

Here are some marinated oysters about to hit the fryer. A little of Essence of Emeril (otherwise known as a mixture of paprika, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder, etc.), oyster liquor, and oil.
