Here's how we fondue. Don't know if this is what you are looking for or not but maybe it'll give others some ideas.
I use my FryDaddy as my cooking vessel and fill it 3/4 full of oil and heat it up. For the food I buy frozen pizza rolls, frozen battered mushrooms, and anything else in the frozen aisle that can be cooked in oil-cheese balls, battered shrimp, filled ravioli, etc. I cut up a sirloin steak into pieces that vary in size from small to large. Some spam into 1 inch by 1 inch squares (spam is GREAT fried in oil!), some raw chicken breasts, and hot dogs into 1 inch pieces. For veggies I use cailuflower, mushrooms, green peppers, all into bite size pieces, and onions in rings. I also make a pancake batter to dip the veggies into, then into the oil. The hot dogs are good in a corn meal batter--like corn dogs. I also cut up cheddar cheese if I don't buy frozen cheese balls.
I have a lot of sauces to dip into. Seafood sauce, sweet and sour sauce, soy sauce, hoison sauce, mustard, ketchup, spaghetti sauce etc. I dig thru the fridge for different things to dip into. I put each sauce into small bowls for easy access.
Then we sit down with 6 fondue forks each and go to town! You can cover anything with the pancake batter-the veggies, spam, meat etc. Also we like the steak cooked just plain in the oil and it comes out as well done or as rare as you want depending on how long you leave it in there. I kind of make varying sizes of the beef because I like mine in big chunks (2 to 3 inches)so it's well cooked on the outside and medium rare in the middle.
We have several forks cooking things at once. Then just dip the cooked items in any sauce. It's fun and takes about 2 hours to get full! Well, us anyway. LOL
