Made a slow cooker brisket for dinner, and the fat rendered beautifully ... and left our plates covered in grease when we were done eating. We didn't have many scraps left, just a few larger drops of fat that I let our dog Molly lick off directly. She does a better job than me scraping it into her dish, anyway. There wasn't much left to wipe off with the newspaper. Some hot water and a brief swipe with a rag later and it was shiny clean.

To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
- clean an oily dish (plate or bowl--not a skillet/pan/pot/etc) without soap - 95% goes into a compost or animal bucket - 4% can be wiped out with a piece of paper that will later be a fire starter
- last 1% is removed with hot water - end result is squeaky clean
To show you've completed this Badge Bit, you must show proof of the following (as pictures or a video < 2 mins):
- the oily dish after the meal is over
- the food scraps going into a compost or animal bucket (if applicable)
- the plate being wiped with a piece of paper for future fire starter
- the last bit of oil being removed with hot water
- the newly clean dish
Okay so I really wanted to do this BB with something really greasy so I could get a sense of what the BB was getting at, so I thought my grease jar would be a good one, even though it is not specifically a dish. Hear me out. I store my bacon fat at room temp so every so often I clean out the whole thing so there isn't a risk of it going rancid. To avoid contaminating the next batch, I want is squeaky clean with no oil residue from the previous batch. It's also been wicked cold here so I though the chickens could use a high calorie treat!
Here is the grease jar. Super handy for collecting bacon fat and convenient to access when we grease the cast iron (which is daily in our house). Clearly oodles of grease.
I scraped it out with a wooden spatula and put it in the chicken bucket:
Wiped it out with a piece of paper cloth to light a fire with later:
