- Put sheet in cold oven
- Set oven to heat to 400F
- Check after 17-20 minutes, depending on oven, thickness of bacon, etc...
- When done, transfer to paper towels to absorb excess grease.

If you put in a second batch, you'll need to reduce cooking time accordingly as the oven will already be warm.
I was thinking the broiling pan because it gives the grease a place to go, what does she do for/about the grease when using a sheet pan?

Pours it in a can. No different than having to pour the grease out of a frying pan.

Addendum: If you have a broiling pan, then just try both and see which you prefer. With the sheet it'll cook in it's own grease, adding a bit of tenderness, with the broiler, you should get a crispier bacon.

Ok, broiler it is, crispy bacon is a must have.

DW likes crispy bacon too, but still prefers the sheet over the broiler. Try both, see which you prefer.

At home I use the broiler and have less residue around the house.

At the CG we put a griddle on the portable gas BBQ and it works great. Frankly I was really bummed not having bacon and walking outside on a Saturday morning into the cloud of bacon-ness wafting from every other camper in the park... which could have been my imagination exaggerating a little.

I would not mess around with covering the smoke detector. If you forget to remove it one time, it could be fatal.

Cooking bacon in the trailer is a "NO, "NO. Outside on the grill. No after smell inside.

Ours doesn't like toast or bacon either. I have been cooking bacon lately on the Weber Q100 outside right on the grill, works great. As far as the detector going off, if I push the test button, it stops beeping. No need to take out battery or cover with anything. As a matter of fact, the button has the words test/silence on it. Factory installed, not aftermarket.

My smoke detector as supplied had a screw driven through the circuit board. The replacement one i bought goes off on humid like today while I am camping. Thinking of trying a different type, the dog goes crazy when it goes off!

Same here. One of my dogs goes nuts and tries to hide under anything she can. Big dog, what a baby. So I always take out the battery before I start cooking.
