... at what point do you just remove the batteries from your smoke alarms altogether?

Usually before I start the bacon.

As a bacon connoisseur I find it easiest to just remove the smoke alarm batteries the first time I ever hear it beep, and leave 'em out.

You're cooking at too high a temperature.

This.

Start with a cold pan, lay bacon in it (not touching, if possible), and set burner to medium. Turn as they wrinkle, multiple times, and remove from pan as soon as you see the really brown flecks just start to appear on both sides. Drain on paper towels.

Or:

Preheat oven to 350. Line cooking pan (needs a good lip all the way around; a cookie sheet won't work) with parchment paper, lay bacon flat on paper, cover with another sheet of parchment. Press down to get top parchment to stick to the bacon (not sure why this makes a difference, but it seems to yield better bacon). Bake for 20-25 minutes. Check for doneness/crispiness preference. Remove from parchment, drain on paper towels.

Bake them until they're so dry the Kwisatz Haderach summons a worm. That is when they're done.

You could check if the offending smoke alarm uses an ionization detector. If it is change it for a photoelectric one that will be less prone to false alarms due to cooking or dust. http://www.asecurelife.com/best-smoke-detector/

We have a photoelectric detector closest to the kitchen that rarely goes off while the ionization alarm in the bedroom is usually the one that triggers quickly. Useful reminder to close the door to the bedroom when frying something.

Do not, for the love of all things holy, try cooking bacon in an air fryer. The neighbours three houses away need to remove their smoke alarm batteries.

I've gone to cooking it in the oven. I think most packages have baking instructions on them.

When asking "What would Jesus do?", remember that flipping over tables and using a whip are within the realm of possibilities.

This, except you can buy a cookie sheet that will work. Its called a half sheet and measures 13" x 17.5" and has a 1" lip. Here is the link to amazon:

You can also use a wire rack that fits inside the lip of the half sheet to put the bacon on, especially if you don't want to mess with parchment paper.

If you want I can post pictures the next time I cook bacon.
