I don't know that there's much bacon-related crap I haven't made. These candles are "eh." More a novelty. Bacon grease heats up and goes straight liquid pretty quickly, and stays pretty soft.
It's better to put the wick in before you pour the grease, like you would making any candle.
In the summer my grease jar doesn't ever solidify.
