This project recycles and repurposes a substance that would normally be thrown away. Burners love bacon, strangely comforting it is for the meat-eaters wandering the desert. Camps cook a lot of it to give away. They are left with bacon grease that is a very tricky substance that must be hauled out, but is notoriously difficult to store and transport without spilling. We have a solution: the baconator. We have been experimenting with “choofers,” named for the sound they make as they burn oil to keep fruit crops from frost damage. We’ve discovered a way to tune these to burn bacon grease with minimal smoke. We have two of them we’ll be setting up in back of camp with the required secondary fuel containment and safety setbacks. They will be lit for a few hours nightly, depending on the volume of bacon grease other camps leave with us. They will be placed near the evapotron along the back street for pedestrian warming.
