All this guy needed to make a deep-fryer was three different sized cans, some hair grease, and toilet paper. While he refers to the method as "prison style", I could certainly see someone trying something like this while camping.


He took the cans, and cut them up to the desired shapes and sizes. He also twisted up some toilet paper and covered it in hair grease.


After loading up the bottom half of a can with hair grease and the toilet paper that acted as a wick, he covered up the flame with a make-shift stove that even had a flap on it to control the temperature. 


All that was left was to add the oil...


and let the oil get hot!
