Fry bacon until crisp. (I did this on relatively low heat in a skillet.) Set bacon aside to drain, and pour bacon grease into a small, clear measuring cup. You should have about 2 tablespoons; if you have less, make up the difference later with additional butter. Place grease in freezer until solid. (This will happen in 30 minutes or less.)
Crumble bacon into a small bowl. Add maple syrup and stir to combine.
In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Using a pastry cutter, blend in solid bacon grease, 4 tablespoons butter, and enough butter to equal 6 tablespoons total of fat. Once the fat is evenly distributed and the mixture looks mealy, add the maple syrup-bacon and the sour milk. Stir just until the mixture is moistened; do not overwork. Knead the dough together once or twice, then turn out onto a floured surface. Pat into a rectangle that is 1-inch high and cut into 6 squares.
Bake biscuits on a parchment-lined baking sheet, without edges touching, at 425F for 12-14 minutes. Biscuits will be golden and a toothpick inserted into them will come out clean. Serve warm.
This delicious biscuit/scone is made with 2 tablespoons of bacon grease from your bacon, and 4 tablespoons butter. Try using 4 tablespoons bacon grease and 2 tablespoons butter for an extra-delicious treat!
