kleenex I do not know. I know olive oil has a very high smoke/burn point and butter the lowest. I am not certain I know what basting oil is unless it is the stuff they also call dipping oil. Hope someone here as the answer, you have me curious.

Kleenex, on their website, I did a search for "oil" and came up with their recipe for basting oil, which is olive oil with garlic, thyme and rosemary. There were a couple of other variations.

So...I'm thinking they are one in the same, with the basting oil having some flavorfull additions.

So good and logical audeo, you researched it more than I did. I read the recipe and made a snap decision, your way is better I think. Thanks.

Well Audeo, I do not have any olive oil on hand. So I am going to have to go back to Wegmans and pick up either the basting oil they sell or make my own using the simple recipe.

I wonder why adding ingredients changes the name to basting oil???

Probably their spin on it, because someone else came out with dipping oil which is flavored olive oil.
