Once you have eaten or otherwise disposed of your Pringles (and cleaned the
tube), cut a slit about 7 inches long lengthwise in the tube. Cut 2 shorter
slits at each end of the long slit, so you have something like the letter
I. Fold back the cut sections; the "wings" will be the solar reflectors. Now
line the open space with some heavy plastic -- an oven bag works well. Do not use plastic or saran wrap as it will melt. That's
basically it. Put some food (e.g., a hot dog or some marshmallows) on a
skewer and run it through the tube, place it in some sunny area, and wait for it
Pizza Box Cooker
Get a pizza box (preferably brown).
Put the box together. Then cut a slit on 3 sides of the lid about 1 inch in
from the sides. Leave the back part where it folds down attached. Cover
the new lid and the inside of the box with aluminum foil. Then get an oven
bag and cut it to fit the entire lid and tape it on. Place a piece of black
construction paper on the bottom of the inside of the box as a collector.
Put a tack with a piece of string on the outside of the lid and a small
tack on the back outside of the box bottom. Tie the string to the tack in the
box bottom angled so that the sun's rays bounce down into the box. That is
all there is to it.
