My smoke alarm doesn't like bacon

Even with vents and windows open and stove vent fan on I have to remove the battery when I cook bacon!!!

Ours dosen't like almost anything fried. When we remember, just take the batteries out when cooking fired foods.

Who or what don't like bacon? That's un-American.

Last winter we had a diesel next door that set ours off. The old single guy was so nice we didn't complain. We just closed all the windows on that side of the RV in the morning before he left to work.

Our smoke detector does not like bacon either, especially near the end of the frying. We have a towel ready to fan that puppy if it goes off.

We partially precook our bacon in the oven before leaving home and freeze it. Then we just take what we need out of the freezer bag and microwave for 30-60 seconds.

You can also put the smoke detector in the freezer when you cook the bacon
