Oh, boy...I happen to love and believe chili isn't even good unless there is grease evident!

I used to put in 1 cup of bacon grease, but since we quit having breakfast I have none.

Now I use 2 pounds of 80/20 and never drain the grease.

Should I just start buying short ribs and grinding my own chili meat?

Oh BOY...Oh BOY...I see a new source of beef grease in my future chili !!!

You don't have to have bacon only with breakfast. BLTs, couple of slices with a steak, bacon and eggs for dinner, calves liver, onion and bacon, bean with bacon soup, fry some up before starting any number of pressure cooker cooks, etc. Mom always had a pot of bacon grease on hand and she rarely ate breakfast.

Short ribs are a pretty expensive way to make grease. But the ribs are fantastic. Still, SGH seems to think you have plenty of cash. OTOH, I haven't seen any "If I had Ron's money..." comments in quite a while.

You could always get your butcher to trim off some pork fat and make your own lard. It's easy, and possibly free. I only did it once and he just went in the back room and sliced some fat off of a loin or two. No charge. Plenty of YouTube vids on how to make lard. It's easy... and probably healthier than most other types of oils.

I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!
