I use it to marinate chicken/beef, I'll marinate it for a few days with other seasonings/juices.

It's a great cooking oil as well, and I really do like to grill up some steaks that have been marinated in bacon fat.

What do you do with it?

Being a Southern Girl I thought the only way to cook veggies was in bacon fat. My mother always kept a little strainer container on the shelf along with her flour, sugar, coffee. All canister sets back in the day came with matching bacon drippings container.
I stopped keeping bacon drippings for many decades and only recently- last 2 years- started keeping a bit and adding it to my green beans. It makes a big difference. I've greased my pancake pan with it some which gives great flavor.

I use it to cook steaks, scrambled eggs and to add some flavorful fat to soups!

Pop popcorn in it once in a while.

Use it to saute kale or other greens

Use it to grease the pan or skillet when making southern-style, savory, unsweetened cornbread (can't stand the sweetened, cakelike stuff).

Make a container out of a newspaper, pour it in there and put it in the trash. We rarely eat bacon so it isn't much of a problem.

Fresh from the garden, a small pile of leaf lettuce or young spinach, paper thin slices of radish, and chopped green onions. Fry up a little bacon, crumble over the greens and pour a teaspoonful of piping hot bacon grease over all, salt and pepper to taste. My mom called it a wilted summer salad, quite tasty.

I fry medium sized cuts of vegetables and beef in bacon fat then I skewer them and serve.

If you have never had skewered vegetables fried in bacon fat then I highly suggest trying this.

I throw it away. I don't like my veggies to taste like meat, so don't use it the way a lot of folks do.
