|Make sure you have lots of towels and your favorite doggie-safe floor cleaner on hand!!! Don't ignore pleas to go outside at 3am, either! This isn't probably going to be pretty coming out the other end.
Eating A LOT of cooked grease could put you at risk for an attack of acute pancreatitis. Keep an eye out for discomfort, vomiting, and fever. Basically, if anything seems REALLY wrong, go to the vet. The pancreas produces the enzymes the body needs to break down fats, so when you put a whole bunch of fats into the system the pancreas is put to so much work making enzymes that it can get really inflamed and basically shut down. Kinda like a car radiator overheating or something. Chances are with some help from the vet you'll come thru it OK should something like that happen.
Chances are you'll be fine. Assuming there wasn't anything else in the trash that could be harmful and you're in good health otherwise, some grease will pass thru no problem, but don't make a habit of it! Keep an eye out for irregular pooping (after the grease clears that is) or not pooping at all, lack of appetite, vomiting, and other signs of anything undigestable having gotten lodged in your innards.
Hope you feel better -- that grease was probably tasty going down, but it can't feel good to have it all sitting in your tummy!
