I bought 1/2 pig-i requested the butcher to give me the lard. Well, they gave me the lard, but it wasn't 'lard' it was all the fat they cut from the pig, folded over itself and placed in a bag!! So i have to 'render' it into lard. Duhh! So, it's all going into the goose pot (I'm guessing it's about 10 pounds) to be cooked on a gas grill, outside.
