My GSO Modification

My GSO Modification

I read an article from another site member a while back about how to harness more heat with a GSO. I had some left over insulation from my wood burning furnace that was highly reflective and attached it with a little medical tape to the back side of the cooker. The day was mild and cooler than usual, but my oven got up to 300 degrees in about 15 minutes!! I was thinking, that it would be easy for anyone to mod their GSO or any box type cooker with some of those sun screens from the car, seeing as that is what my insulation was made of. Looking forward to trying this out in more depth when the winter months hit. That is going to be the real tough season to try to get some work done with my cooker. So far this has been nothing but fun and I am learning a lot. My roommates love when I cook in my GSO too and one of them is considering buying one for his mother who lives in Texas! That being said, if an infantry man can see the use in this wonderful invention, I think that anyone can!!


Great enhancements to your Global Sun Oven, and easy too.
I also use the same bubble material you mentioned above to make simple solar panel cookers, as well as for added cooking capacity along with my commercial solar cookers.

You must be coming down with solar cooking syndrome, your mind, in such a short time, is already "frenetic" with ideas for better and more solar cooking options.

...tell your infantry buddy that great minds think alike, I was infantry, which probably explains why I took so well to solar cooking..."take the most feasible and quickest route to your objective with as little resource (expenditure) as possible"

Thanks for sharing this.
