  1. With this heat we been having we decided to start using the sun oven for cooking. I am very new to cooking in the sun oven and was wondering if any of you out there cook in sun ovens and have any recipes,tips,tricks or secrets to making meals in them that you wouldnt mind sharring would be greatly appreciated .

    First experience the roast cooked in the sun oven came out really dry .
    Second attempt did pork steak in it and it also came out dry.

    Last night I made Ham, Potatoes and cheese and this came out Excellant !
    Tomorrow I am going to try a Ham mac n cheese dish in the sun oven and will see how it comes out.

    We have had no sun to speak of. I saw a farm stand last week with green peas and cherries in the same line. It's such a cool year here in Oregon. I wonder if you made your sun oven? I would like to try to make one and see how it goes. I don't have any advice, Sorry ,but was glad to see your posting. Hopefully more folks will try these out.
