Ron, I didn't add more fat; it didn't need it, in my opinion. I like that there wasn't too much grease, but enough to get the flour browned and not stick in the skillet.
I used whole milk... It's rich enough without being half and half, though that would be very good, or a mix of the two. The recipe's on my blog, but I did use flour, about 2-3 tbsp. you can add a bit of sage, too, though I like the smoke to shine through a bit more; the sage competes a bit.
the biscuits are very simple, and so much better than store-bought.
