N8 Here is all you need to know. At the upper end grocery stores they sell coconut oil. It is what popcorn was popped in at the theaters years ago. It is a hard white solid at room temp and it will not caramelize like olive oil when heated. Put about 80% of the coconut oil you need for popping in the pan and the other 20% make up with bacon drippings. It won't taste like bacon and the coconut oil is very taste neutral. Pop and drizzle melted real butter and sprinkle salt on it and the party is over.

Well I use a Whirley popcorn maker on and electric burner. It is an aluminum pot with a top flip up lid. It also has a wooden crank that you turn and it has a small wire inside the pot.
I use peanut oil and white kernel popcorn.
I then add a bit of salt and some melted butter to the mix and eat.
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.

N8man, this is almost the same recipe I use. Just one MAJOR change and everyone says it is the BEST caramel corn ever. Use HONEY instead of the Karo corn syrup and use real butter.

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.

I need to follow this thread. Thanks N8.

Popcorn cooked in bacon fat in a cast iron skillet on a kettle earned me a zero. The joke was on everyone that didn't vote for me, it was awesome.

I like Mills Magic Dust, Yardbird or Ted & Barney's on popcorn. My wife loves SM Sweet Seduction or SM Cherry. Otherwise we just do plain butter and salt. Always popped in Extra Virgin Coconut oil or bacon fat.

I'm lazy and use a


popper. I also use coconut oil from Snappy popcorn. You can mail order it http://www.snappypopcorn.com/productcart/pc/1-Jar-Snappy-Colored-Coconut-Oil-4p72.htm . They also have some great http://www.snappypopcorn.com/productcart/pc/8-5-oz-Shakers-c98.htm. I like the Jalapeno the best.

Edit: I don't know what happened. I cannot get the hyper-links to work for the Snappy products. You will have to copy and past the links if you want to check them out. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Pop it stovetop with some oil then sprinkle heavily with Tabasco (original) and a pinch of kosher salt. Makes it even better that the wife and kids won't steal it from me!
