Solar Ovens

Interested in trying this. Can you all tell me success stories with specific dishes that you have made with your solar oven? And the kits or instructions that you found? It's about to get real solar in Austin TX.

  1. Made a dynamite huckleberry cobbler in a solar oven once. Yep, summer is here, rudeboy. Time for Barton Springs and JimJim's water ice!

    1. I've baked brownies successfully but the oven is more humid than a conventional oven. A pot of beans slow cooked beautifully. I used a black cast iron dutch oven.
