In the end it came out a bit crispier than I'd like. This was maple bacon. When I tried the same thing with unflavored bacon it turned out almost too dry to eat. :( May need to either adjust the temp or not keep it in there as long next time I try it. :)

ps: This is my very first comment. *^____^*

Alton Brown places bacon on cookie rack on top of pan. Fat drips away from bacon. Place in COLD oven and set to 400°F. The slow heatup helps to render a lot of the fat away before it actually starts cooking. Much healthier than frying in own fat.

Yes absolutely the best bacon. So juicy and crispy at the same time. So full of flavour

I use this method but have found that parchment paper works better than foil.
