We tried it one year, and yes, it was absolutely delicious.  We did it in the back yard, well away from the house... there was a dangerous element to it.

High smoking point is what I've been told.  Chinese restaurants use a lot of it too.

That makes sense... it has a smoke point of 450 degrees F, same as corn, soybean, and sunflower oils.  Few common cooking oils are higher than that and many are lower.  (For reference, canola is 400 and lard is 370.)  I use corn oil for most things myself for this reason as well as it's availability and low cost.  I don't see why go with peanut in particular, I'd think it would be expensive, especially when you need so much of it.
