Grease disposal

How are you disposing the grease after steam cleaning your Lang?

I don't really see a lot of grease in mine after a cook.  I usually steam clean it the way Ben shows in the videos on the website and I have a metal bucket that is around 4 or 5 gallon in size under the grease drain which catches all of the water and debris then I just dump it.  There is very little grease if any in it though.  Most of the grease is burned up during the cooking process because of the way the smoker is built.

I pour mine if a fire pit

Grease disposal

Talk to a local restaurant,  they usually have grease disposal units, just tell them there is water also.  See what they say.  I do have a good mixture after a long smoke and 8 shoulders.

I guess you probably do have quite a bit to dispose of if you are cooking 8 butts at a time.  I will never do that many, I usually only do one at a time or maybe 3 or 4 racks of ribs at a time so I don't have anywhere near the grease that you have.  Putting it in a fire pit sounds like a good idea if you can get the water seperated out.
