You can cook up a bunch of bacon and let it cool then chop it up for use as bacon bits and save the grease. I would think you can buy it at the store too but Im not 100 percent. Hope that helps.

why would anyone want to do that?? then you wouldn't get to eat the bacon


fwiw if you can buy it someone tell me the company so i can go work at it.... i would love to be the garbage man there.

I don't recall seeing bacon grease sold in a store. You can buy lard, though.

Yeah, thanks, I know I can collect it by cooking bacon, but I was looking for a short cut.

Go to a restaurant, and hook up with the KM or chef and ask them to save some for a few days for you. I don't think you will find it as a store item. Now lard on the other hand will be near/on the baking aisle.

Never seen it in a grocery store. Though, honestly, I have never sought it.

During the span of your two posts (5:32-6:06), you could have rendered some bacon.

Never have seen it in a store.

I rendered it last night for a dish, but was just looking for a short cook....I mean shite you don't even have to make your own roux anymore.
