Hi wondering if I could get a few tips on seasoning
Today I'm going to finnish off seasoning 2 camp ovens I have Brough recently,iv seasoned both 2 times with canola oil,but I'm thinking of using the fat under the weber bbq that's in the drip tray,is this advisable or should I just stick to the canola oil
Thanks for any info

Personally I would stick to the oil. 

Unless you can get an extreme high heat to really hard carbonise the fat there is a good chance it will go rancid and eventually stink you out of house and home.

If you really want to use fat I would buy beef dripping from a butcher.  The drippings in the Weber tray will have all sorts of impurities in them.

Thanks heaps Derek I'm glad I asked before doing it, I'm actually using bacon fat ATM but I haven't got much left, that's why I was thinking of using the Webber drippings
I saw on YouTube about using the bacon fat, this won't go rancid like you said earlier I hope will it, or do you still suggest I go back to the canola oil,I'm abit green between the ears with these camp oven as you mite of guessed
Thanks again appreciated

For what its worth Ive used all sort of oils at different times, all of them seem to work equally well to me.
Ive never really used animal fats intentionally, but a fair bit of it would have to be baked into some of my ovens from roasts that Ive done.
I have had one or two smell a bit rancid at times, but regular use will keep that problem to a minimum.

Lately I've been using Sunflower oil from Aldi to season and getting very good results, it has a higher burning point than Olive oil and is not as expensive. In saying that there is nothing wrong with using Canola to season, just don't use in your cooking.

When I die I hope my missus doesn't sell my camp ovens  for what I told her I paid for them. pd

....or if you want to season (or cook) with an even higher flash point oil there is solidified Coconut oil , Rice "Bran" oil or even Peanut Oil.

We use rice bran oil at home Guss. My wife started buying it because apparently it has less environmental impact than others. I use canola for seasoning my cast iron gear, no reasoning to it, it's just what we have in the spray can in the pantry!  Grin
