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.
