What do you do with your fat drained from meat?

Just curious. Don't want to dump into the trash, toilet, sink. Any suggestions?

  • well, I pour it into a bowl, let it get hard (as it cools), then throw in a bread bag, and throw in the trash, I don't know what else to do with it, if I had one of those cars than run on grease maybe I'd use it for that but I try not to make greasy stuff, we usually will grill it though

  • I have four dogs so I take it and pour it on their dinner. They love it-it makes dry food a little more exciting I guess.

  • I keep emptied jars from pickles, etc. and then drain the fat into the jars, put on the lids, and store them under the sink until they're full. Then they go to the garbage can.

  • I like the dog food idea!!!

    What I do is save a milk carton and fill it with the greese and when it is filled and solid I toss it or another thing I do is carefully cut the top off a pop/beer can and place it in the sink, pour the greese into the can and when it is solid I toss it.

  • Pouring it over dog food is a HORRIBLE idea!! .. I use empty butter dishes, once they get full I throw them out.

  • I dump it down the sink with hot water and dishsoap, have done this forever and have had no problems. The key part is the dishsoap...squirt the soap directly into the drain while the water is running.
