So far most of the posts are good ideas except for throwing it in the trash.
If you do not want to consume it youself you can put it in compost as well, or toss it outside at the end of your lawn, many creepy crawlies will enjoy it as well as the birds, it is good to use a tablespoon or two for roux and it is not heart attack inducing crap in moderation just like anything else you choose to eat. Our cats will even grab a lick or two from what we put on the dog's food.

i also vote for giving it to the dog


i use to bring beef fat home to my greyhounds (dogs) years ago, they loved it and it was good for their coats..
but they did get the squirts, so i backed off..

I often grind beef fat and pack like a baseball and roll in birdseed for the birds..
sometimes,,,i grind it,,, heat to a liquid,,,throw in birdseed, peanuts, then let it solidify(cool) and cut into square for critter snacks

This. Fried potatoes, after it's clarified.

Yum, all of the cooking suggestions and for the critters! Fat is not bad for you anymore, carbs are. And to think it only took mainstream medics over a century to figure it out.

This reminds me of a funny story... One day my husband asked me to buy some beef fat. I figured he wanted me to use it to flavor a sauce or something. one night I wasn't feeling well so I laid down on the couch and woke up to a horrible smell. I was like... what the heck are you cooking? It smells like someone died LOL. He decided to fry the beef fat like bacon!!! He ate it and got horrible stomach pains later. Serves him right LOL.

Well, I don't have a dog so that's out. I'm in the camp that thinks fats have been demonized, so I didn't want to discard it purely on that regard. The stock comes out rich and flavorful after roasting the bones, so I was hoping for a way to use the fat as well. I put it in the freezer for now, I think I will use it next time I make a gravy or roux. Thanks for all the replies!

I just cooked the duck that was in my freezer and rendered the fat so that it won't burn or spatter when it's heated.

To render, simply simmer the fat, in a tallish pot at very low heat and it will sizzle and pop like crazy. Keep simmering until the sizzling and popping stop. Then the beef fat can be used to cook or fry. I'm sure oven fries made with beef fat are going to taste good.

Save the beef fat and grind it in with the moose meat for mooseburgers. Mooseburger is a little dry without a little added fat.
