Put the leftovers in fridge for salads or microwave the next morning.
    Years ago I got some large jerky smoking racks at Gander Mountain. Fit a large aluminum sheet pan (don't know if they are called a quarter or half sheet) Lay the bacon on one of the racks sitting in the sheet pan, and cook like you said. You can cook about 3/4 lb at a time on them. Can line the pan with aluminum foil, also, but the clean up w/o the foil is no hassle for me.

    I can get Wright bacon on sale and get a lb of Jimmy Dean sausage with it free so I buy a lot at one time.

    I also buy Bacon Up which is 14 oz of factory prepared and filtered bacon grease. I can use it to make gravy without making bacon.
