Swanson's is pretty good too. Olivado was very good. But DON'T get the hawaiian one at Whole Foods. It tastes like putrid vegetable oil.

For reals? If you had then you would know for sure as it's some serious yum :) Wait. Just saw your profile and you live in BK? Uh oh.. you probably did then. I might have to hunt you down as it's all mine!

It works well Eric. You can build your own, but I bought one Pre made. There's a basket at the bottom which I can load with chunks (charcoal would work too). It takes half an hour t get a good fire before loading the stainless racks and putting the lid on. Air control is done with bottom plugs. It holds temp for 4-6 hours depending on the wood. The downside is the abundant smoke. It's best done out in the country.

Oh man I've been freezing mine, and am still working off the sockeye stock before I get into the coho. Applewood with a little hazelwood at 225-250F for 2 hours in a barrel. Beyond the home smoked fish, my favorite oils for cooking are duck fat and butter.

I'm going to make my answer broad as you did't necessarily say just for cooking :) so a normal week for me will incorporate the following:

  • Marrow butter
  • Coconut oil and nut oils
  • Duck fat, my jar is getting low so ohno must roast another feathery friend soon
  • Cheese
  • Munching on Macadamia nuts and coconut slices
  • Dark chocolate
  • Bacon - pate or rillettes about once a month
  • Avocado
  • Almond butter
  • Whole milk dairy products - yogurt, cottage cheese

Growing up on the coast I used to love eating smoked sockeye salmon that was home-canned. The best jars had enough fish-oil to cover the smoked meat. I still love to smoke and can my own salmon but now I live further inland and they've generally burned most of their delicious fat reserves by the time they get here.

Fresh fatty fish is preferred. Duck fat for mushrooms, potatoes etc. Marrow bone fat for sauces and some vegetables and wild mushrooms. Grated coconut, and butter. Also some tallow (not often, used in some foods that spices mask the flavor of tallow, i dont really like it so much). i dont use pork.

Coconut Butter.

The only drawback is it seems very easy to overeat.

I don't use it that much but when I do I remember how tasty it is:

Macadamia Nut Oil

NOW foods has an organically one.

I have really been grooving on some tallow lately. I get grass-fed beef bones for almost free from a local farm, simmer them for days to make bone broth, then as an added bonus, when the broth cools, I have an inch of beautiful, rich creamy tallow on the top of each jar. I use a big spoonful for scrambling eggs and have been cooking pretty much everything else in it, too. I love coconut oil, but it's nice to have a hange (and you can't beat the price).

For some reason, my body hates coconut and olive oils, and I've never been able to eat butter without paying for it the next day.

However, both me and my body concur that bacon grease is where it's at. Delicious and tummy friendly? I'm down with that. :D

avacado oil is great not only to fry in due to its ability to withstand high heat, but can also be used as a dressing. it is nutritious and delicious. i have purchased organic coconut oil but have not used it yet. i am looking forward to trying it!

There's myriad reasons already posted here as to it's amazing health benefits; but I'm going to get in with coconut oil - it's almost perfect. Especially for frying thick slices of back bacon in. :)

A close second would be palm oil, and for cold use, EVOO and if I can keep a hold on my 3/6 ratios almond and walnut oil.

Cold smoked salmon. Just had a frittata with artichoke hearts, asparagus spears, no-additive cream cheese and salmon, so good!!! I buy salmon from deli's, not vacuum packed cold smoked salmon. It's often very high salt, but I don't eat it that often, so I think it's not that bad. I prepare almost all my food at home, so I don't think I don't have to worry about salt intake.

I've lowered my fat intake, so I currently don't need to "supplement" my fat intake (like spoonfuls / shots of coconut oil or butter), apart from fish oil caps.
