Victory over the smoke alarm!

Some people know about my challenges with the smoke alarm in our Boise apartment. I set it off nearly every time I cook! However last night I discovered an excellent tip for broiling steaks in our apartment-sized oven, courtesy of the internet:

Now, if I could just figure out how to keep the broiler element from turning OFF while I’m trying to cook.
