So...was there any advice on how to do it RIGHT? And what kind of extinguisher to have on hand ( since water is clearly out)?

A good multi-purpose fire extinguisher (ABC) is good for most fire types. Class K is specifically for cooking oil fires.
OSHA has a good web site on extinguishers: Web Link
Remember "PASS" to use extinguisher:
P - Pull the safety pin
A - Aim the nozzle at the BASE of the fire, from a safe distance (4 to 10 feet away)
S - Squeeze the handle
S - Sweep the extinguisher from side to side while aiming at the base of the fire
If safe, you can try to cover and smother.
