Bacon Drippings - Available Online
 
Has anyone ever bought bacon drippings from these folks?

http://twinfoods.com/twin-foods/

Our home cured bacon doesn't make near the amount of drippings we use compared to processed bacon.

I haven't; and apparently you have to buy some in order to find out how large a "package" is.

Their website says each package is one pound. Apparently this product is in lots of stores in OK.

Good lord man, cook your own bacon and save the drippings. I do mine in the oven at 400 for somewhere around 20-30 min. Causes less splatter, the drippings are "cleaner" and you don't need to mess with it as much.

I can walk a block down the street and get rendered pig skin in a 1 quart container for around $2.00. It's great for anything in a frying pan. Doesn't burn and smells like mild bacon during use.

Thanks, but I guess you missed the last sentence of my original post. Are you able to get a lot of drippings from your home cured bacon?

I have one of these in my refrigerator for saving bacon grease for recipes...

I never have any problem getting fat drippings from my cured pork belly. It could be that you have really lean belly. I would put purchased fat drippings in the same league as packaged chopped onions or shredded packaged cheese, a fool and his money.

I see now; it wasn't on the order page, but on the one that leads to it.

Don't know if I would want to pay it, but $10 per pound actually isn't surprisingly high. I cook my own bacon and I always save the drippings, but that doesn't mean I always have some to use when I want it.

Yep, missed it. I was so offended at the thought, I stopped and shot off my mouth. Sorry!

Actually it says a box is one pound. How many boxes to a package? Just the one?

From their website:

With our product, there is no need to buy bacon and cook it just to get bacon grease
Well, that's true but, I cook bacon to get bacon... the drippings I save are a dividend from the cooked bacon.
BTW, you can't make cornbread without a CI skillet and bacon drippings!:clap2:

I get plenty of bacon drippings from home cured bacon. We have been keeping bacon drippings in a coffee can in the cabinent for the last 50 years at my house. We would not even consider cooking vegetables or cornbread without it. Gots to have my bacon drippings

This is the way I feel about it. I understand that you're not getting much from your home-cured bacon but this just rubs me wrong. I would bite the bullet and buy and cook bacon to get good drippings before purchasing it from others. If you're making your own bacon as a cost savings effort, I wonder if having to buy drippings completely negates those savings...? Just a thought.
