Bams, good to know that's how the Mexicans do it, too. Thanks!
I have bacon fat and chicken fat (schmaltz) right now that were pan rendered. I never thought of rendering the pork fat in water, what a great idea. I'll give that a try when I smoke my next fresh picnic ham.
Always searching for the perfect loaf of bread.
I still don't know what I don't know.
