Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
Wash, scrub, and dry the potatoes thoroughly.
Rub bacon grease (or olive oil) all over the potatoes.
Rub salt all over the potatoes.
Using a fork, poke about 5-6 holes all around each potato.
Place the potatoes directly on a baking sheet; bake for about 45-60 minutes.
Using a sharp knife, make a long slit in the top of the cooked potato, then squeeze it open using a clean dish towel.
Enjoy as is, or serve with your favorite toppings!
