Sure, but you seemed a little unclear that there would be such a thing as leftover bacon grease. Frying up bacon for a family is one common way people would end up with a lot of bacon grease. Or if you're just frying up the bacon for the bits to sprinkle over a salad or something. There's plenty of times one is frying bacon for the meat and not for the fat.
