"DJ" had this to say:

Hi Karen, not a stupid question at all! Anyone without a fryer might be stuck. Most meat thermometers don't go that high. I'm not even sure that everyone knows what a candy thermometer is! There are special thermomters you can get, designed for oil, and they clip on to the edge of a pot, but ... I've already got a glass candy thermometer, so this is what I've always used. Just be careful! I'm glad you asked! :)
