    I did some beef short ribs on the bbq yesterday. Low and slow.
    It rendered a fair amount of beef fat.
    Is there anything I can use this for or should I just throw it out?

    If it rendered from suet I'd keep it in the ice box and use it like any other type of fat.  It has a high smoke point.

    BBQ beef fat is very strong flavored. Not sure i would use it.

    Use it to make a pastry dough, then make bbq beef pastries.

    Beef shank confit with Yorkshire pudding and with carrots and cabbage seasoned with caraway then oven roasted with beef fat.
