If possible, take it home and dispose of as you normally would. If you
have a large amount, you must serving a lot of people and this means
you found a way to get supplies etc. to the campsite and should be able to
find a way to get the grease and other trash out with a minimum of
problems. If there is ready access to transportation, this should be
the preferred method.
If carrying the grease home is not an option, i.e., backpacking, the amount
should not be very large. If you have a fire, CAREFULLY, slowly
pour it into the fire, not into the coals on the ground but onto a log
or such where there is a flame -- to be somewhat safer, soak it up with
paper or pour it on a log or board away from the fire and then place the
grease soaked paper or grease covered wood into the flame.
If fires are not allowed -- I don`t know what you`d do, make an oil
lamp maybe? How does the bacon get cooked? Maybe it`s a good time to plan
on preparing something else instead of bacon.
