Just a few quick questions. I am a professional chef and have access to a steady supply of free bacon grease. If I were to purify and filter said grease, would if behave the same way in cp soap as traditional lard? Would it have the same saponification value as lard? I use lard in soap frequently and thought it might be fun to try the bacon grease. Has anybody here tried this before? If so, did you get decent results? Also, is there a way to deodorize it so as to lessen the smoky smell? Any input would be greatly appreciated. The bacon is cooked on sheet trays in a large convection oven so there are no other oils or fats mixed in.
