Let soak for about 1 hour and drain fries from the water.  Completely dry the fries in a kitchen towel before frying!!  Preheat oil in fryer to 350 Degrees F.  Fry potatoes in batches for approximately for 8 minutes, drain onto a paper towel lined sheet pan and sprinkle with some kosher salt.  Repeat with the rest of the cut fries. Once all the french fries are cooked, place in the warmed oven, turn off the oven just before placing fried potatoes in the oven to keep warm.  In a medium pot on medium heat, melt butter.  Whisk in flour and cook for a minute.  Add; beef stock, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, garlic, salt and pepper to taste.  Once sauce starts to thicken, add in the pulled beef.  Lower heat and cook for additional few minutes.  To assemble:  Place French fries into 4 serving dishes, add 1/4 cup cheese curds and pour 1/2 cup of hot beef gravy on top and garnish with minced green onion.
