Step 5: Sit Back and Admire Your Work

Now you deserve a rest.
Grab some Super Crunchy Bacon Crackling (see my earlier Indestructable for the recipe), crack open a cool refreshing beverage, sit back and enjoy the relaxing bacony atmosphere.

Ahhh... Wouldn't be dead for quids.

I really hope you have enjoyed my Instructables. If you did, I'd love it if you could give them a vote in the bacon contest after May 8.

I made it
If you modify the bottom of your cooking pan, it can automatically drip excess bacon fat into the lamp as the bacon cooks. You might get away with driving a nail into the bottom of the cooking pan so it makes a small elevated bump with a hole in the middle. Be sure to do this off-center of the pan, so the grease drips onto the lamp, but not on the wick. The elevation is to ensure that a layer of bacon grease remains in the pan, but any grease that is over this level is drained into the lamp. You may need to somehow have a wire that penetrates the nail hole, so the bacon grease can overcome any surface tension that would keep it from draining.  Maybe a bent paper clip or something.  Any watery juices will remain in the pan, unable to reach the drain hole.
Wouldn't dripping hot fat, in a trickle out of a hole in the bottom of a bowl, onto a burning flame. with just a bit of oxygen (thanks to those nifty triangles cut in the can) be somewhat of a massive fire hazard? <br>The fat dripping out the hole, wouldn't be able to completely avoid coating the outer curved face of the cooking pan, even with a paper clip grease guide..over a live flame, I'm thinking this would end up achieving a bacon fat house destroying time bomb, that even Macgyver would be proud of (and whom oddly I am watching on the telly while typing this)
Clearly there's a possible positive outcome from every problem.
Good idea. I was trying to install a tube, but your idea is much more do-able.
phew, when i saw this ible i thought what a waste of bacon, but it was only the fat, good ible :P<br>
thanks for the props man. nicely done. i wonder what other foods could be cooked using their own grease as fuel...
Haha this is awesome. I'm glad you modified your first idea into this. It is definitely on my list of projects!
Omg yay! You listened to mine and twojima's idea on the Bacon Powered Lamp page to have Bacon Powered Bacon! &lt;3 I'd totally vote for this one. :D<br>
Thanks. It's a great idea. I had to build it
