I gotta get one of the separater gizmos. I always just set the pan outside on the deck. Seven months of the year it gets cold real quick and then I scrape the fat off with a spatula. TexLaw is right the stuff will keep a long time with no fat. I make up demi glace (sp?) and freeze it. It's also about time to make some more Worchestershire sauce. That's fun to make and tastes great. You get to grind up massive amounts of horseradish, and a bunch of anchovies and other stuff, and then boil the bejesus out of it.
