Cast Iron and Bacon fat.

I need to know conclusively... I now have beautiful SS appliances , a wonderful gas stove, first time I have ever had gas... It is better to cook with gas... but here is the question.

I have cast iron griddle that I tend to leave in the oven to cook bacon on.
I tend to eat the bacon and run out to work. Leaving the bacon fat on the griddle. Now somewhere it seems to me that someone said that bacon fat is a great thing to season cast iron with. But is it ok to leave the bacon fat on the griddle? Can I just wipe the left over the bacon fat off and keep going?

I do that with my cast iron skillet all the time. I just wipe it out with a paper towel.

If your bacon is rendering a lot of drippings, you could set it on a stove eye to melt/warm once you get home. Pour off the excess and then wipe or wash.
