Definitive fat ranking

Help me rank the "idk" category.

Good:
>Butter (grass-fed): baking, sauces, condiment
>Extra virgin olive oil (completely unrefined ; glass bottle w/ press date on it): relatively low heat, salad oil
>Lard (from pasture-raised pigs, not corn/soy fed): baking, medium-heat frying (eg traditional fries)
>Beef tallow (render your own from suet): deep frying, deep frying, pemmican, traditional fries, shortening
>Clarified butter (grass-fed): deep frying, sautéing, flavoring, condiment

Decent:
>Unrefined avocado oil: decent alternative to clarified butter
>Unrefined coconut oil: tropical cuisine
>Ghee (grass-fed): same as clarified butter but nuttier flavor

Avoid:
>Anything that doesn't go into either Good or Decent

Idk:
>Walnut oil (unrefined)
>Flaxseed oil (unrefined)
>Sesame oil (unrefined)
>Palm oil (fractionated)
>Palm kernel oil
>Macadamia oil
>Hemp oil
>Pumpkin seed oil
>Peanut oil (unrefined)
>Duck fat
>Beef suet (not processed into tallow)
>Lamb suet (not processed into tallow)
>Mutton suet (not processed into tallow)
>Lamb tallow
>Mutton tallow

Keep the banter to a minimum

      Pigeonholed things don't require you to think, you can just do as you're told. People like doing as they're told.

    Ok, I looked at your list. The animal fats are all good. Palm oil is okay, because it's saturated and that doesn't leave space on the molecule to oxidize. Flax seed isn't good because it oxidizes too fast.

        I've done this but honestly felt like there was too much heat. Like from friction or something. Felt fine though.

    duck fat is s-tier bud
    also suet and tallow. if you're cooking with suet you gotta make tallow first i have no idea why you would distinguish the two unless you think rendering at home is somehow less processed

    Isn't palm oil nutritionally pretty good, it's just that the production of it involves a lot of clear-cutting old rainforests and modern slavery

        Coconut is by far the best oil from a health standpoint, nothing else even comes close. The actual ranking, for health, is

        Best
        >coconut
        Distant second
        >butter
        Extremely distant third
        >other animal fats
        Literal poison
        >everything else

        Rankings for flavor and application for various cooking methods are completely different, of course.

    Sesame oil is typically not used for cooking, it's mostly used as an oil for finishing dishes to depart its distinct flavor.

    For me it's:
    1) BUTTER king of fats
    2) Tallow from roasts
    3) Unrefined coconut, for specific stuff
    4) Unrefined sunflower/olive for salads
    5) Anything refined but soy

    Frick everything else.

    Fat from pasture/grass fed animals = good
    Extra virgin olive oil = good
    Seed oils originally used for industrial lubricant = bad

    You should add hazelnut to the top tier, it’s got a very similar fat profile to olive oil and is much more likely to be the actual stuff, plus you can make it at home.

    IMO olive oil should be bottom tier. I’m convinced the entire industry is a competition between producers for “most plausible scam”, either because you’re getting a different oil, it’s old, or it’s made from low quality olives.

      Just use a fat with a higher smoke point. There's no point in using olive oil if you don't get that EVOO flavor.

    Ghee and animal fats are superior. High smoke point, and they do not denature until high temperature.

    Ghee is dirt cheap to make at home. It does not go rancid for a very long time. I use it in my scratch backpacking meals because no matter the conditions it does not go bad. Tastes great, too.

    I only cook with ghee, Bela Vada avocado oil and animal fats. Butter for skillet eggs at low temp. The rest I feed to my enemies along with the head of Alfredo Garcia.

      This, putting ghee as decent and butter as good is the dumbest shit Ive heard, ghee is just clarified butter, basically butter but removing the stuff that makes it smoke.

      Unless you're an artery and then you are hardened for sure. The best use of lard is by the pig itself.

    Peanut belongs in good. It's my favorite to use for chicken in most contexts. Refined peanut oil has a high smoke point at 450 degrees Fahrenheit, and the flavor is mild to neutral. Chick-fil-fries everything in it.

    King:
    Virgin Coconut oil
    Butter
    Ghee (when not produced in india)

    Noble:
    grass fed tallow
    organic/small town fatback (diy rendering)
    olive oil (high risk of getting punked just like meme oils)

    Okay:
    bird oils: (higher polyunsat value)
    Sesame oil (finishing only, best to diy or buy from reputable)
    virgin palm oil
    Cocoa butter (its difficult to get these two without contaminants like lead)

    >garbage tier
    Everything else
    >But
    Everything
    avacado oil is dogshit that is 99% of the time sneed oil relabled and in any case theres zero fricking way they dont heat treat the avocado sneeds and flesh.

    Heres why
    Out of everything the stuff I listed are either necissary to be on the list (they have some kind of culinary purpose that cannot be superanuated, like olive oil), or they cannot be faked
    Tallow cannot be fakedl
    Bird fat cannot be faked
    Butter cannot easily be faked
    virgin coconut oil cannot be faked
    this is why clarified butter is harder to deal with.

    The best to fry with are coconut oil and clarified butter by far though. Light frying I'd recommend tallow.
    Absolutely do not smoke your sesame and olive oil. dont bother with anything lless than virgin on those types.
    Never buy shelf stable lard, render it yourself from pork.

      If you can't tell the difference between avocado oil and soy/canola oil by smell alone then you have a problem.

        olfactory shit is the easiest to fake, thats why olive oil is mostly canola oil relabled but with some flavnoids and rancid olive oil to masque its fakeness. buy avocados fresh, stop consoooming sneed oils.

    oh and lastly, suet is the goat and hard to get so dont assume tallow is the same shit.

    I filter bacon grease, save it in a jar in the fridge.
    It works great for cooking and smells/tastes delicious.

    What tier is bacon grease?

    • 3 weeks ago
      Anonymous

      Bacon grease is meh tier. I save it not wanting to be wasteful, but then rarely use it ending up throwing most out anyways. When frying things like potatoes with bacon grease they never get as crispy as other fats, even straight lard. I also don't really like using bacon grease unless I'm cooking something which is going to include bacon, but in that case I have plenty of fresh bacon grease from cooking the bacon. If I want something to taste like bacon, I'll just cook some bacon.
