I have more chicken,beef,veg,and pork fat than I want to eat.
I have been adding it to my wood pellets as an accelerant.I live this in my charcoal making.
But I still have plenty of fat.
Should I soak it into some alfalfa pellets to use as a chicken feed?
Could I use the resulting pellets in my tlud charcoal maker?

The chickens would probably appreciate more fat in their diet.  Unless they are able to find a lot of seeds while free ranging, fat is probably scarce in their diet.  Let the pellets soak it up before you feed them.  I add extra melted fat to their feed bucket, shake it around, and toss it in for them to scratch at.  This trick works with yogurt and creamy salad dressing too.
