How do you drain grease from your stock pots or dutch ovens?

About a year ago, I was making my favorite meal (chili), and while I was draining grease from my pot with the pot lid acting as the strainer, it occurred to me that there had to be a better way. With the exception of the one time the lid slipped and I filled my sink with the contents of the pot, using the lid to drain liquids has worked. However, I just bought a 7.25 quart dutch/french oven and it is heavy. I just don't want to drain hot liquids using lids anymore.

Colanders are great for draining water, but I don't see how they'd work with grease. Water can go straight down the drain, grease can't. So the question I have is: how do you drain grease from your stock pots or dutch ovens?
