I just finished a 37 day solar cooking video tour of the western states, with 30+ new episodes for my series: https://www.youtube.com/c/BigBlueSunMuseumofSolarCooking I'm not monetizing the channel, but would love it if all on the ASES list would subscribe. Generally it'll take me a week to edit each ...

No apologies necessary! Of all the items to "repurpose" for a green use, it's kind of poetic justice to cook and dry foods in a car :) I've thought of designing a cooker that would have it's own window, but with a felt/wool cushion that would conform and lightly seal against any window inside the car, ...

Ah, we aim to please :) I actually have a Through-The-Wall-Oven built into the south wall of my garage, it will reach 300oF/150oC. Since I collect cookers and prefer to cook outside, I don't use it as much as I could but when I'm in the "studio half" of the garage, and it's sunny enough here in the "Variety ...

Hope you enjoy the videos--everyone I've visited has been so generous with their time and creative with their use of solar energy, I'm sure you'll find a few projects in them that you'll want to try out. Although I can't play favorites, Craig Bergland's episode I saved for the season finale last fall, ...

Agreed! I actually visited his son, David Wareham, in Milwaukee ten years ago, had lunch and recorded an interview with him. At the time I was thinking of writing an article or even a book about solar cooking, and I was impressed with Richard Wareham's work. I only have the audio with David and it's ...

Solar cookers are great conversation starters! Do you still cook solar? Jo and I keep a collapsible compact parabolic (SunPlicity.fr) in our car and will break it out at rest stops for lunch on long road trips, and at campgrounds when we're staying for a day, plus our rellies' back yards when we're visiting. ...

Great book, if you have a moment to check out the SCI's wiki (solarcooking.org will get you there), I'd urge you to post the book there. The great thing with the wiki is that it is quickly filling a lot of the gaps in solar cooking history--when I started my podcast series I was worried I'd only have ...

My humble contribution to the cause is to capture the current history of solar cooking inventors, promoters, advocates across North America. At least until the pandemic breaks, I'll be hitting the 48 states on two road trips a year. My first complete season can be found in this Vimeo Showcase: http ...

Thanks for promoting Solar Cookers International and their wiki, I just joined their External Outreach committee, fortuitous timing given the creation of this forum!

I look forward to any news from ASES members regarding the use of solar cookers and dryers. I suggest this thread focus on this use of solar thermal as opposed to heating buildings or generating electricity from thermal solar. I also highly recommend participation in the Solar Cookers World Network group ...
