It might not, since suet is raw beef fat.  Once it's rendered, it's called tallow.  I'm surprised a butcher shop didn't have it.  Maybe they just don't keep it on hand, but could save some for you if you asked?  Our butcher shop gives pork fat away free to anyone who wants to render lard.

There's a good book on this topic called <a target="_blank" href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0805067744?ie=UTF8&tag=buttham-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=0805067744">Never Done</a>[Image: ir?t=buttham-20&l=as2&o=1&a=0805067744], by Susan Strasser.  It's exhausting just reading about the amount of water women hauled into the house before indoor plumbing.  I don't know how my grandmothers did it all: cooking, cleaning, babies, laundry, gardens, chickens, sewing....  I think my mom's amazing, and she has electricity and hot-and-cold running water to help!

People don't know how to make popcorn?  Egad.  Put some fat in a large heavy pot with a lid and get it hot, toss in the popcorn, and wait for it to pop.  You'll need about a tablespoon of fat for every 1/3 to 1/2 cup of unpopped popcorn.  Use a good quality saturated fat like coconut oil or lard, that won't break down under high heat.  When the popping slows down, shake to pot to help uncooked kernels fall to the bottom and pop.  When the popping stops for a few seconds, it's done.

I miss popcorn, maybe more than anything else from my grain-eating days.  It's just not the same eating butter straight.
