Bacon Powered Lamp

Step 2: Create your Fuel

This lamp uses bacon fat for fuel. I guess you will need about a quarter of a cup of fat. 
To obtain bacon fat...
You can simply collect the fat left in the pan after frying your breakfast bacon until you have enough,
or
you can do what I did and trim the excess fat off some raw bacon and fry it on the stove until all the fat turns liquid. This is a very simple process, but be careful not to burn the fat or yourself. Everything gets very hot.
