Can I store beef dripping in my new deep fat fryer or will it quickly go off at room temperature. I suppose I could put the whole machine into one of my fridges when it cools down. Ideally I'd like to store the fat at room temperature for two or three weeks until the fat is looking a bit dirty.
Also the instructions said not to mix fats, I've made a 75% beef dripping / 25% virgin coconut oil mix. Why would that be a problem?

Fat which has been heated will go rancid more quickly and the higher the heat, the quicker the spoiling.

I have not had good luck with keeping beef drippings, they seem to go rancid quickly, and in any event have a strong flavor and aren't very versatile. I am not 100% sure of the health qualities of beef drippings, but if they are actually going rancid, then they probably aren't good for you.
This might work better if the fat were trimmed from the beef and rendered slowly rather than coming off of a roast, but I find that duck and pork fat are a lot better than beef in terms of keeping the rendered fat for cooking with later.
