Here is the recipe I used and they turned out very tasty! Now I didn't measure the spices exactly, so feel free to adjust to your taste.
1 cup flour
1/2 cup beer
2 tsp paprika - mixture should be a light pink/orange color
1 1/2 tsp cayenne - more or less if you like hot or mild
1 tsp garlic salt
1 tsp black pepper
several shakes hot sauce
dill pickle slices - I love Best Maid
Dry pickles in paper towels to remove excess juice. Combine all ingredients and whisk well. Dip pickles in batter and fry at 375 for 2 about 2 minutes. Don't overcrowd fryer for best results. Serve with ranch dressing.
