    But we haven't started to hash out what KIND of oil to use. There are so many choices. 5W-30, 10W-40, synthetic, hybrid. Much more to discuss.

      Oil is primarily for heat transfer. I use 1 Tablespoon regardless of whether I'm popping 1/4 cup or 1/2 cup. Just enough that as the kernels pop, they still have oil to transfer the heat.

      For flavoring melt butter in a double broiler, not cooking oil.

        I have a camp popcorn popper made out of metal screening. Works like an air popper over the fire, works great and no oil needed, not even for heat transfer. By the way, that popper's been in my family since I was a kid and after 50+ years still pops over the fire.
