Thanks, this is the point I've been trying to get to. I don't understand why ghee isn't a staple in barbecue. It's shelf stable, has a high smoke point, tastes like butter and is available at a reasonable price at any Indian or international market and, I'm sure, on-line. Those worried that it will give their food an Indian flavor haven't tried ghee, it tastes like butter and nothing else.
