    Brisket and candles

    I cooked a brisket on the keg a little before Christmas, and decided to do something with all the trimmed fat. Who wouldn't want a candle that smells like delicious smoked meat?

    After a quick look from my wife, I made a little foil boat and stuck the trimmings in along with the brisket. They rendered down nicely, poured into an old empty glass candle, add a piece of string, and there you have it! It did not smell much at all, sadly. Plus, it looks kinda gross. Success! I'll save up some drippings from big cooks on the big smoker and make one out of a coffee can and thicker twine next time

    Brisket was great...why afraid to try it? As long as you don't undercook it, it's hard to screw up, really. It has an undeserved reputation as being difficult to cook.

    LOL! That's awesome. I'm thinking that nobody else has probably ever tried that before.

    Tallow candles and things like them are very old... but I'm guessing your point is that most modern cooks don't do this.

    You can improve them with various additives:
