I want to invest in a good bacon fat jar. But, before I do, I want to be sure that if I use it on a regular basis to add fat to my cooking, I won't end up with adverse health effects. Also, how long does bacon fat last before I should discard it... (more)

There is a fair amount of PUFA in pork lard. Have you ever tried grass fed beef tallow?

Do you feel it is our responsibility to confront the conventional wisdom that we so often come across in articles like this one on --gasp-- Huffington Post, that advise us to steer clear of bacon and saturated fats, or suffer the... (more)

If I'm ever quoted in some famous phrase book, I hope they pick up on my favorite saying: with ability comes responsibility. (yeah I came up with it, though I doubt I'm the first) Since you know the truth, you should tell people. You have the... (more)

Could you consume too much bacon fat? Every morning, I'll make anywhere from 3-4 slices of bacon, and maybe a couple of eggs cooked in the bacon fat. After I'm done cooking those, I'll use the remaining bacon fat to cook some veggies in. Is that... (more)

Is there ever to much bacon! I know it is a sin, not used all that bacon fat. I will not tell, if you do not! What kind bacon, do you buy?

Obviously I love bacon, but having some logistical problems with cooking it. I cook a batch of about 6-8 strips in the oven once a week. This produces more leftover fat than I can possibly use in cooking vegs, etc. So I have pots of the... (more)

First, you shouldn't be creating that much smoke when cooking bacon. Turn the heat down. I cook my bacon in the oven on a cookie sheet at 350F for ~25-30 minutes for thick cut style. I can say there is really no noticeable smoke. If the frequency... (more)

Hi, Paleos. When I cook a pork chop, lamb's leg, or chicken etc, am I meant to eat the skin, the rind, the fatty bits? This is where I am getting mighty confused about Paleo and weight loss, good fat and bad fat. Thanks a bundle E (more)

I find that the better quality your cut of steak, the more edible the fat is. Rib-eye is $$$ but the fat just melts in your mouth and is so delicious. If you're timid, start there. Then you'll be able to appreciate the slightly more robust but... (more)

Bacteria is not the concern with bacon fat, oxidation is. To reduce the rate of oxidation, you want to keep the fat out of light and air. The refrigerator makes a great spot to put it for this reason. You need a dark (opaque) air-tight... (more)

Kerrygold butter and butter from grass-fed animals contain: vitamin A vitamin K2 vitamin E CLA other important fat-soluble nutrients ... which bacon does NOT contain. I would go for the butter anytime. (more)

If you're going into ketosis, you definitely shouldn't be looking at calories. I think a tool like livestrong is ideal for tracking carbs and fat intake, but those calorie limits are really not designed for ketosis or Paleo lifestyle, and more... (more)

You alway find out something new when you do actual research. I always thought bacon grease, butter, and coconut oil were ideal for frying. The reason? Well, don't they all have rather high smoke points? And isn't that because they are... (more)
