The first time we picked it up we said, "Damn, that's one Fat Bastard." And so the "Fat Bastard" was named. It's a half gallon (59 oz) of Pure Premium Grass Fed Tallow. This is our most economical brick. It's the equivalent of purchasing three jars and getting the fourth one free. Designed for perfect loading into your "fry daddy" type fry machine or even the more traditional Dutch oven. Bricks are great for slicing off just the right amount to throw into your skillet. Fry on - big time!
