      I can think of very few things that aren’t improved by being fried in bacon grease.

        Let’s see. Pork fried in pork fat. If that’s wrong I don’t want to be right.

                In my particular case, I'd use th Bacon Grease, on accounta I always use dat, Lard, Tallow, etc...

                I, emphatically, DO NOT WISH to have "Partially Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil" listed as th "Official Cause Of Death" on my Death Certificate...

                YMMV

                I'm with Mr. Bones about shortening. It has no place in my kitchen.

                But whether to fry ham in bacon grease depends on the ham. If it's everyday nothing special ham, yep, bacon grease is good. Wouldn't hesitate a second on that.

                If it's really nice flavored ham from one of our most excellent local lockers who do their own curing and smoking, I would probably not use bacon grease. That would be like slathering someone's ribs or brisket in KC Masterpiece before even trying a taste of the nekkid meat to see how it tastes on its own.

                If I want to taste the ham and nothing but the ham. I might give the ham a little warm up and a bit of browning with a pat of butter or even mild flavored olive oil.

                  Yeah, it’s just a ham slice. Good ham slice, but nothing special.

                  I’m in the league with a few of the others right above me. No vegetable oil anything cuz I found out taint no vegetables in em & they make yer body rot, yessir. Also found out eggs & bacon & the artery conundrum is a sack o’ unmentionable words that don’t mean much cept put money into some coffers of mfgs. & associations.

                  Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                  The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                  The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


                  The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                  Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


                  This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

                  Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?


                  The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.
