ManedWolf - Thank You All For Your Insight!
I just went back and reviewed my question from a few years ago, and the responses. I wanted to thank everyone for your input. At the time I asked the question I was going through culinary school, having never really set foot in a kitchen; let alone a professional one, I wanted to say I appreciated all the answers you gave. I'm sorry I took so long to say that, but it was important. Now, I know how to make an excellent stock, and the fat is worth it's weight in gold!
