They put a patch on my back to wear for the next 7 days, which is some kind of narcotic. It's not working. I've always been resistant to pharms, just the way my body is.Well that's just crap. Chronic pain is the worst dog, even worse than the black dog of depression. Trust me, I've been companions to both of them. Fingers crossed for you.
For an experiment, try it on a cooling rack in the cookie sheet, with some water below. The rack lets both sides be exposed to air and the water keeps the dripings from smoking.A friend converted me to makin' bacon in the oven: 425° for 12 minutes. lay out flat on a cookie sheet lined with tin foil. crisp , even, flat bacon!
I’ve found that on the rack, it doesn’t get as crispy. Fine for me, as I like my bacon squiggly... the GF, not so much. So, some goes on the rack and some on the side.For an experiment, try it on a cooling rack in the cookie sheet, with some water below.

No guantees, but works for a duck.
2 tacos, 2 beers and 2 of my wife’s monstrous homemade blueberry muffins. She even made them with extra blueberries for me (that is why they are a little flat). We call them “5 mile muffins” because they probably have 5 miles of running worth of calories in each...worth it.4 tacos and 4 beers?
I know it's not all about latitude, but I live north of anywhere in Indiana, and I say 14 is beyond chilly and into cold. -14 is Damn cold.
I'm in central Indiana. I'll walk the 50 feet from my door to the mailbox and back in 32 degree weather in tshirt and shorts. At 14 degrees, it'll be jeans and a hoodie. At -14, I'll swap the hoodie for a jacket. At -40 I'll put on a hat and gloves. About a month ago I went camping and it got down to 23 overnight. Getting up to go pee was an adventure but the trip was fun.
