Mix all ingredients in a large stainless steel mixing bowl. Place the bowl in the refrigerator and allow the seasonings to blend (minimum one hour).
Use a large Dutch oven and fill to 2/3 full. Use a minimum of 3/4 gallon fresh peanut oil and preheat the oil to 350F. Next use two tablespoons and dip about 1 to 1-1/2 tablespoons of batter, use the other spoon to push the batter off of the spoon and into the hot oil. Fry the puppies about 3 -5 minutes or until golden brown. As the puppies cook they will float and allow themselves to be turned.
A tablespoon of granulated onion can be added to or substituted for the garlic. Or you can substitute the granulated garlic for 2 tablespoons of Roasted Garlic Puree.
