- Reserve the bacon grease by pouring it into a small dish.
- Heat 3 tablespoons of the bacon grease in a large pot on the stove on medium high heat.
- Place two popcorn kernels in the grease.
- When they pop, add the remaining popcorn kernels.
- Cover the pot with a piece of foil and cut several slits in the foil with a knife to allow steam to escape.
