Ok so I've been on the site for a while mostly reading with a few posts now and again. I was going through my freezer and I found a vacuum sealed package of pork fat that I had as leftover from when I made venison jerky last season. I was wondering if anyone has ever tried smoking basically shavings of fat. Now I realize that fat breaks down with heat and that's why ribs will fall of the bone and butts will pull fabulously. Here's why I'm thinking about smoking it. I'd like to get that fat nice and smokey before it has a chance to break down. After it breaks down into a liquid in a drip pan below, I wanna cool it off and let it firm back up so I can form it into a stick similar to making a compound butter. Then I could cut off chunks to through into the foil wrap stage when doing ribs or anything else for that matter. What do y'all think? Will it work? Has anyone done it? Thanks.
