    We have a big steer butchered every year. This year however (now that I have chickens) I've asked the butcher to package the tallow for me. Is there any sugggestions on rendering and storing the fat? I only plan on using it for the chickens to make suet not soap or food. I thought someone here could advise me on thier experiences.

    Wifezilla, I have been reading up on that and not sure of myself to do more than making suet. I do make my own pie crust and bisquits. Maybe I'll challenge myself to make some for my baking and I guess if all else fails, feed it to the chickens. [​IMG] Have you rendered beef fat for baking? If so, what are the results?
