getting rid of it

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
I'm going to be smoking 9 slabs of spares in the morning. I assume there will be a lot of grease in the bucket when I get done. How do you guys go about disposing of it? I can't see just pouring it down the drain. That's just asking for problems. You can't throw it out in the yard or pour it down the sewer.

So, how do you get rid of it?

Mine collects off my Lang in a gallon ice cream bucket I have reserved the lid to. Once a week it goes in the trash can and is picked up.

I have a jar that I use to pour all my grease and oils from cooking and smoking into. Then when its full I put it in the trash. I always save my empty pickle jars..........Pouring down the drain you are just asking for them to clog up on you.............

I trow it in my burn barrel (trash barrel). Don't put it down the drain, unless you like backed up pipes!mad.gif

If you can, keep the meat drippings and skim off the grease and fat.

I have an old tractor rim dig into the ground for a campfire pit in the backyard. when I get a plastic pail full I set the pail in the center of a good strong fire that has well established good, hot coals.

Hey, thanks guys. I never thought about putting it in the trash. I just knew that there wasn't anyplace I wanted to pour it out.

Ours goes into the weekly trash, we are not allowed to do any open burning without a permit from the fire dept. once a year in October. Then it is only for yard waste.

I have an old tree stump left over from the hurricane that I'm slowly burning. I pour the grease and oil on it and it burns off when I burn the stump.

I save plastic and glass jars for grease. I prefer the glass jars so you have a secure (screw-on) lid, which removes your worries of the grease spilling out in the dumpster.

Don't put very hot grease intpo a glass jar, as it could cause breakage of the glass due to rapid & un-even heating/expansion.

Speaking of garbage dumpsters, I don't store larger grease stores in the household trash can...too smelly and could get messy...go straight to the dumpster with it.

There is a restaurant nearby that has a couple of 45 gallon drums out back. They lets me pour my excess fat into their drums. They in turn give it to a local pig farmer who mixes it with his hog feed.

I keep a 5 gallon bucket under my pit. Each time I clean the ash from a cook I put it in the bucket and any grease drips into the bucket of ash under the pit. I don't get a lot of grease, espescially with a drip pan, but whenever the bucket gets full I just dump it behind the shed and it keeps the weeds from growing.
