Hey everybody,

Welcome to the Forum.

I keep it very traditional: coconut oil, yellow popcorn, and popcorn salt.

Thanks Ross,

Where do I get the coconut oil? I heard that coconut oil burns in the kettle. Is this true?

Coconut oil will burn in the kettle if the kettle is too hot. If the kettle is at the correct temperature, it works great.

You can find coconut oil at various places. Around here, Wal-Mart sells a two pound jar. I went to a concession supply house and picked-up a 50 pound pale of coconut oil. It was about half the price (or less) on a per pound basis.

Thanks for the info? What's the difference between regular salt and popcorn salt. By the way I got the coconut oil. At what temp should I cook the popcorn to keep from burning the coconut oil in the kettle. I bought her a 8oz paramount machine.

Popcorn salt is more finely ground. They also tend to add some color and flavoring.

Your kettle should be around 475 degrees F. At around 525 degrees F coconut oil starts to degrade.

For what it's worth......
Before I retired, I owned and operated 11 discount movie theatres in the south eastern US. I have a huge amount of experience in popping corn. We only used coconut oil and Flavacol yellow salt in our theatres.
My advice is unless you pop a LOT of popcorn, buying the large can of coconut oil can be a mistake. There is a shelf life on coconut oil. I found out the hard way my using a brand new can of oil that came from a closed theatre. Trust me....it goes bad. Just be careful. :D

***NOTE***
I did a bit of research on the shelf life of coconut oil. Although it seems to have a longer shelf life than some oils one person suggested 2 years was max. The vintage tub of oil I referred to in my text above had an unknown "new" date. It could have been 2-3 years old. I just remember it had a BAD taste to it. As soon as I changed oil the problem went away.
