Seems that left over buttered popcorn tastes much better then next day.
No special additions for us. I always considered a slight dusting of cayanne pepper but have not tried it.
This was the firehouse recipe that we used forever at work as well as what my kids loved at home........Simple but danged good my kids told me.
Have the same. Love it.
I use whatever cooking oils around and usually straight up Orville popcorn. Butter and salt. Great every time.
Love bbq rub on popcorn but never sticks well. Any tips beyond dousing w butter? I'm sure someone will say mustard.
