Default Grease for Herman?

I got Herman a chew toy. But he doesnt gnaw on it like he does his first chew toy.

Occasionally my family will save the grease from whatever meat we fried and then drizzle the grease over the dog food.

Can I dip Herman's new toy in the grease or will that be bad? (If it is bad please explain why.)

I wouldn't do that, animal fat isn't good for them.
A lot of hams don't like things sold as chew toys, can you get whimzees or antos dog chews? They are the best chews & most enjoyed by hams, you could also try hazel or apple wood sticks, dandelion root is good too but due to it's medicinal properties they shouldn't have too much or too often.

As long as his teeth are fine there is no need to fret about chewing on things. Hamsters with properly meeting teeth will wear them down as they chew their normal seed mix Greasy food is not suitable for hammies so avoid that!
