I know this question shows my newness, but when I look at Danny's
which shows a big smoker full of holiday turkeys, I wonder. What
happens to all the grease? Each one of those birds must emit at least
2-3 cups of pure fat.
Just a'learnin about smokers ..
The grease falls to the bottom of the pit and is channeled to a hole where a
big container catches the offal. It's likely that when the container is near
full it is dumped outside into a dumpster-like container that is used to
hold all the disposed of restaurant greases and oils. When that container
gets full, a rendering plant will send a truck to empty it out.
And here in the NorthWet (and more and more other places), that
rendering plant will be making biodiesel. (along with whatever else
they can get outta the crud)
