over easy...

Cooked another chicken in the solar oven yesterday.  Forgot to take the reflector (wind catcher) off when I was finished.  Must have gotten a little gusty last night from just the right direction.  The wind snapped the weld on the swivel post.  Luckily the cast iron pizza pan didn't break the glass and the reflector only has mild damage.  86,93,67,0,B

Just watched this YouTube video , "From Gotham to isolated, code & debt-free West Texas estate" and loved it.

Oops, sorry to hear about that.

Probably any lessor built solar oven would now be in total ruins - after being subjected to those stout Terlingua Ranch winds. Heck - all John's oven needs is a 100 percent stouter mounting to keep it attached to that massive steel foundation. Since the oven is already on wheels - after cooking has been completed - it might last longer to simply roll the oven inside that huge greenhouse - which has never been blown down by those same stout winds?
