I'm not disagreeing, but the fats in butter burn at about 350 deg. I don't always have ghee. And my wife insists on a vegetable oil and I'd rather agree to canola over soy or corn oil. Sometimes a modest health risk is worth it for marital bliss.
And I want to know how you get all those bacon drippings. I maybe eat a pound of bacon a week, but the drippings don't go very far. Also, I use an extra virgin olive oil for salads and a light olive oil for cooking.
And while I'm at it, I would like to know how many of you save your tallow and how many of you actually buy lard. My local Giant used to only have lard in pound packages over by the butter, but now they stock gallons in the mexican food aisle.
