    Quoted from vid1900:

    Get real butter topping instead of crappy chemicals:

    You should just use plain butter or butterfat. Butterfat is what's used in (good) theaters and is the closest to real butter. Butterfat doesn't have colors or milkfat, which may burn in the warmers after awhile, not to mention start to stink up the place. So it's more practical than store butter. It tastes slightly different from store butter, however.

    If you really want the true no-compromise theater taste you can make your own butterfat by just heating regular butter and skimming off the foamy stuff.

    The other keys to movie theater popcorn are the oil and salt. We used red palm oil but coconut oil is fine. We added enough popcorn salt to the bucket during popping to give it a very lightly salted flavor.

    Thinking about it, you could probably use some strained bacon fat to make bacon-flavored popcorn, and/or mix some bacon fat into the butter.

    Quoted from girloveswaffles:

    You had me at Bacon!

    True. Now that I've thought of it, I need to try it out! Just make sure you strain it to remove any particulate because the second cooking in a popper would likely burn the remnants.

    I use bacon fat in my bacon macaroni and cheese recipe. The normal recipe requires about a half stick of butter. About 1/2 that in bacon fat does the job of the butter and makes a nice, but not overwhelming bacon flavor.

    Quoted from Wolfmarsh:

    Thanks for the info, that doesn't sound too bad. The popcorn machine doesn't bother me to clean, so I guess we will pick up a hot dog roller in the future.

    My problem with hotdog rollers is there are only a few premium brands that will work on them, and almost no natural casing franks. If Miller's hot dogs are available in your area, they're very good and will work.


    These are my current favorite but they don't do well on a roller machine.
