Bacon Fat=Lard?

We just discovered carnitas at a Mexican restaurant here in Okinawa. Delicious! Was reading how to make my own. It talks about covering the meat in oil if you don't have lard. Well, I save all my bacon drippings to use when cooking. I have quite a good amount. Would using this work?
