Blown away sun oven
by Mark Rosenberg
I was cooking some chicken and bam along comes a huge dust devil. carried my oven away and tore up the reflectors. However the glass did not break and a few rivots later I was able to complete my chicken dinner which is now named bbq devil chicken. Tough little oven. If you have gusty winds you can place a brick paver inside for weight and anchor the reflectors down with twine like you would a tent.
Yes, those winds that come quickly out of nowhere are a pain when it comes to solar cooking. They can grab the cooker and dump them real quick.
I am glad to hear that you were able to fix your solar oven up again and keep on using it.
The Sun Ovens really are pretty tough, but care does need to be taken in order to prevent such mishaps, which is why I always brace mine with bricks on the sides and back, just in case.
