Tips, Notes, and VariationsEdit

  • Put the sauce in a canning jar, and punch several holes in the lid. Sprinkle by turning the jar upside down.
  • It took up to seven times of sprinkling and shaking to salt the mixture.
  • It is possible to substitute some vegetable oil for the bacon grease, but the result is less authentic.
