Oven-Smoked Bacon

I don't know about anyone else, but I plan to make my own bacon to avoid the added nitrates and nitrites in regular bacon. Nitrate/nitrite-free bacon from the store costs way more than this stuff will for me to make.

Nitrates and nitrites can cause cancer in relatively small amounts (just 2 hot dogs a month can significantly raise your risk). So, I'm glad I've found a bacon recipe that's easy to make without a smoker.
