Exactly. keeping one jar in frig. for use, and other two in freezer for later. will not keep to long at room temperatures. Melts very quickly.

Cracklings
Expected more cracklings after the meltdown. Will see if birds like them this winter.

Why do you run it through the grinder, Grubby? Does it melt down easier?

Franklin, it has no smell. T-Roy, it melts down much quicker but it isn’t necessary. We ended up with about 3 gallons, lots of little old ladies will be getting gifts of bear oil, hopefully they repay the favor with warm donuts. :)

Nick, with everything it does for your boots just think what it could do for your hair.

It’s a lot easier to microwave wave it. It comes out white and is so much quicker.

Elite 1, it’s not eligible for the record book if you use the microwave.

Lol I know it’s almost like cheating but I have brunt some in the crockpot a lot less babysitting it.
