    Restaurant Leftovers

    Primal Fuel
    So I was just thinking about my favorite BBQ joint, and I began to wonder what they do with their excess fat from all that delicious critter.
    Has anyone ever called a restaurant & asked to buy leftover scraps? What did they say? About how much did it run? Do you think it would be a good idea to try or should I abandon the quest before I sally forth?

    I would imagine that once it's considered "waste" it can't be sold...can't hurt to try though!

    Depends on 'elf n safety I guess...

    Common sense would suggest they have to pay for disposal, so giving it to you is in their interests.
    On the other hand, it could be considered a health hazard technically :/

    I meant it had to be tossed...not given away. lol

    I'm not sure by any means but that's what I would think due to health code and such.

    ALTHOUGH...you may be able to have them sit it aside in a special bin just for your food..I mean trash at a predetermined time that you just happen to be swinging by.

    I wouldn't touch it if it is from conventional meat. Too much Omega 6...

    I dunno if it's conventional or not. I suppose I could ask if they use grass fed or grain fed critter. There is a steakhouse in the process of opening close to me, and they have been asking facebookers if they would prefer grass or grain fed. I have been lobbying for grass, of course, and told them that if they could undercut other restaurants by serving a superior product at a competitive price, they'd be rolling in dough. They are also considering selling steaks to customers for take home prep. I wonder if I could ask them to set aside grass fed fat for take home prep. Hmm...

    I am pretty sure they legally have to dispose of it.
