    This is our method as well. Tin foil on cookie sheet cook till crisp, but still tender in places like the meat and some of the fat portions. Makes good bacon that way. On the stove top it makes a huge mess and it seems to always scorch and get burnt...

    Right there where the action is happening. (my preference) I can slide the TC out a little when moving or inserting the tray and slide it back when the tray is loaded.

    The one I plugged through the ear with my sons .22 back in 16 got turned into brunswick stew. I'd love to whack some more. They are everywhere now.

    Yes, it helps. In a defensive situation you probably won't even hear the firearm going off, but with all that you must be aware of you may not even notice the recoil. You will notice the ringing in your ears after the situation is settled.

    I give it to the wife and say "Cook this bacon". I like it crispy. I cook nearly everything else, for every meal, but she does the bacon, and the spaghetti. Those are her two items. [smilie=1: Nope, I did NOT marry a cook. :holysheep

    Very sad and I'm saddened by this. The first thing I saw in the news was he used an AR15. They didn't even wait for the blood to cool before they jumped to conclusions and pushed an agenda.
