    I've never heard of it but will have to check the next time I'm in the store. Is Plath's a higher-end store? Spray duck fat doesn't seem like something a small-town Piggly Wiggly would carry.

    Also, because it's an animal fat how does it retain its solubility at room temperature? All the spray oils I've seen seem to be plant-based.

    Plaths is a two office (one in Petosky, one in Rogers City) butcher shop in the upper part of the lower peninsula. I shop there for some pretty amazing smoked pork products when we are at my sister in law’s cottage.
    I have no clue about why it maintains solubility at room temperature and does not require refrigeration. It’s interesting. The butcher said he likes to use it on a steak before he grills one, I didn’t notice any real advantage or any hint of flavor so, as a neutral, light, pan lubricant I guess it’s as good as any. I’m still trying to form a better opinion, I don’t use much of that sort of thing anyway but, this seems pretty good for a quick spray for fried eggs.
    Check the “cornhuksers” web site I note in the original post, I don’t remember what shipping was like.
    Just did a quick google search, Walmart seems to have it for nearer nine bucks.

    I'm on my second can of this stuff; I like it, but I'm still not sure it is worth the price. I've sprayed my onions and peppers (for fajitas) with it as well. Seems to give off a nice subtle flavor, but again I'm not totally convinced of its worth vs. the price.

    The thing is, the stuff can take a LOT of heat before smoke point, I’m thinking vortex steak. Applied to steak, not grill, of course.
    I like the fajita vegetable application, spray blistering hotcast iron, zammo! Hot toasty browned veg!
