    I'm a 90 percent of the time griller. I'm not sure about the fat dripping off, but I know there's no skillet to clean after dinner!

I also think grok would have made use of the bones for broth for the young and elderly.

    I enjoy cooking on an open fire and do it when ever I can. I only fry my meat if it is breaded and I gave up bread so no more fried meats.
    Yep. I'm no expert but one thing I've read over and over is that HG folks were not in the habit of wasting calories. Food was hard won.

    Another thing about the bones, didn't Native Americans use the marrow fat for pemmican? Now that's some fatty stuff!

    Personally, I don't add a lot of extra fat in my cooking. If I'm cooking in a skillet, I want enough for things to brown and not stick but I don't like really oily food. I think a lot of folks exaggerate a bit for effect, as bloodorchid says.

    I don't tend to grill really fatty cuts. I usually cook those low and slow.

    I don't think that traditional peoples cook all or even most of their meat on spits. But even if you do, a lot of the fat is internal and doesn't drip out, especially if you are cooking an entire animal. So they wouldn't be losing that much.

    But plenty of animals were probably cooked wrapped in leaves, stewed or boiled in pots/bark containers, baked in hot coals, etc. There are lots of primitive ways to cook and not all of them drain fat.
    Today I will: Eat food, not poison. Plan for success, not settle for failure. Live my real life, not a virtual one. Move and grow, not sit and die.

    Sometimes up to 75% of my daily calories come from fat. Remember, without carbohydrates the body needs a fuel source. And I walk up to 8 miles every day at work. My current intake is balanced so that I do not gain or lose weight anymore. I'm finally at my healthy weight and fitness. Primal for the win! And it's not like I'm missing anything from my diet. Between the fish and vegetables, etc., I get everything. Do not fear the fat. It is your friend!
