Squidoo user GetFreeRecipes shows us how to make these candles that let you pour bacon fat drippings over any food that you think needs a flavour injection.

All you need to do is pour the bacon fat into a glass container, let it cool to room temperature, put it in the fridge for several hours, and then drill a hole in the solidified fat so you can insert a wick. Just be sure to use a wick made from natural materials.
