Oh, golly, and I'm missing it...
He's right about the saturated fat though... I have a special syringe

I am from MEridies, but I used to do the same thing. I used to inject
melted lard, fresh rendered from early century lard hogs, and heavily
salted. Now I think it is more important to switch over to the
lowest-priced heritage baking shortening (not the stuff recently
reformulated to meet new standards). I use less salt with this, but the
trans fats will make you delerious. (end sadonism)
BTW, Pork skins fried in actual lard with salt are a joy to behold,
regardless of the health alerts!
(eeek! I'm looking at doing a pork shoulder confit next weekend for the
experience of it. Mmmmmm, fatty pork braised in seasoned, pork fat! Rock
on! Maybe a salt/honey gastrique ala Apiscius?)
