Wow, how much are you going to end up with?

I have a book that has a recipe for Bison tallow soap. There's a guy down the road who raises bison, so I'm tempted to ask him if he ever has any tallow.

Been rendering tallow for 3 days now should be good for a bit. Thank goodness lol.
I tried that a month ago. It took days to get a cup of oil, that I just give up. It smelled bad too. I must have been doing it wrong.:sick:

I got the beef tallow from the butchers and had him grind it for me makes it much easier. Put it in a big roaster i had outside on the deck and turn it to 140 degree's and stirred once in awhile. When melted put it through strainer lined with cheescloth . Did that twice. Was easy enough no smell in the house.

It's definitely worth it to ask him. Bison is pretty lean, so he may not have much.
