Cooked in a big stainless bowl over a gas burner. Popcorn salt, the pink stuff with MSG in it. Melted butter. BRB got to whip some up now.

Popcorn, I love it! I found a brand new Whirley-Pop at my local thrift store about five years ago, and use it regularly. I always like traditional butter and salt, but when the wife and I are going to watch a movie at home I'll whip up my version of "elote" Mexican street corn-popcorn. I pop my corn in vegetable oil, and in a small pan on the stove melt about a half stick of butter, squeeze 1/2 a lime into warm butter, drizzle over popcorn in bowl, season with salt, grated Cotija cheese, or Parmesan, and Taijin Mexican seasoning. If you can't find Taijin, chili powder works well too. Having machetes handy is optional, depending if you are inclined to share or not.

In my teens, I went on an Outward Bound hiking trip and we'd make fireside popcorn, that our guide seasoned with salt, pepper, and brewers yeast of all things. Weird but delicious

Gosh. My popper is a brown paper sack. Just dump in what I want and microwave it on high till its done. I'm partial to butter and salt, but a good dose of Cajun spice is great too.

I like the big mushroom kernels. Bass Pro in St. Louis, sells kettle corn made with mushroom kernels outside their store on the weekends. Salty & sweet!

I usually take 1/2 stick of butter, melt about 1/3 of that in a 2.5 qt pan then toss in enough kernels to form a single layer on the bottom. Melt the rest of the butter and drizzle that over the popped corn and toss with salt.

Next time, though, I'm going to try popping it with bacon grease in the pan instead of butter.

My brother in law and his wife throw a couple of handfulls of milk chocolate M&M's in the bowl of popped corn, it's not bad.

Myself, I usually only eat popcorn when I am at work on weekends so it is microwave bags that I sprinkle season salt on.

I'm a HUGE popcorn fan, and have been making my own stove top or over a fire for probably 15 years (I'm 32). It's one of the first things I learned to cook well on my own. I am a big fan of the Whirly Pop that some of you have mentioned. Its my go-to Christmas gift if I have to give something to someone that "already has everything." I like plain old butter and salt, my wife likes to mix hers with something sweet - M&Ms or something like that. Rosemary and parmesan (fresh, not from the shaker) is a REALLY tasty combination. Also, butter and cajun spice is nice.

A movie theater around here sells what they bill as "bacon popcorn." Its just popcorn with bacon grease drizzled on top. Its pretty soggy and not good at all. I know some of the great minds on here can improve greatly on that! Thanks for starting a thread about my all time favorite food - popcorn!

P.S. I've often wondered what smoked popcorn would taste like. Thinking about popping some up the next time I have my UDS rolling, and then placing in a metal colander and setting in the smoker for just a couple of minutes.

I take my daughter to the farmer's market some Saturdays, and the best part is knocking out a whole bag of the kettle corn they make to order right before we leave. I need to figure out how to make that stuff, its very "crack-like"

have you ever tried coconut oil? For a little extra kick add a splash of your favorite hot sauce.

I use a stir crazy popper too and I use BACON grease and it is the bomb. For an avg batch (3/4 cup of corn) i use about 2ish TBS of bacon grease. I save my bacon drippings and occasionally when we eat maple bacon those flavors comes through. Kind of cool. From there season with butter and salt. But you have to have some good corn. I get mine from Indiana.

I just found the popcorn button on my microwave the other day. I keep pressing it but it never spits out popcorn. What am I doing wrong? I probably paid extra for that feature too.
