[Important notice: This content has been generated automatically and is published for an experiment]

You need a solar cooker or solar oven if you are on a very sunny or very dry day, there is an additional amount of electricity in that recipe, but with the temperature of your food at least 200 degrees more so."
A large percentage of the cooking is done with the grill's heat source — the air, of course.

This recipe is designed for grilling and has been used with success, but many people prefer to use a gas grill. Gas grills are typically much easier to cook with, but the heat is not as great — and, the downside to gas grills, is that you will have burned off more calories on your food than on a stovetop grill.
For a more accurate calorie counting, simply measure your food's weight (in grams), then add this number to the total volume of the finished meal, with or without toppings. If you are using a food processor, use your hand to add calories, or multiply by two.

In order to use a solar cooker. It is best to use a compact stove or similar heater that is rated at 50 or more watts. The power requirements are much higher in winter. It is recommended that there are no refrigerants in the refrigerator unit to assist with cooling, even for this application.
To start the heating elements, place a heavy pan of water in the cooker, add 1 to 1 ½ tablespoons of oil, turn on the cooker, and immediately place the pan, in a circular motion, about an inch away from the flame and toward the center. For the most efficiency and to protect the heating element from heat damage, it is good practice to turn off the fire before removing the pan from the cooking vessel. You can also put water into the cooking vessel. For an additional benefit, heat the water and place the pot slowly, at the same time, over the center of the skillet or skillet liner. The water in the pot will quickly ignite the charcoal

Cooking with a solar oven to cook fish and other fresh foods - the kitchen was the best place to be for you to gather, clean and prepare supplies for future hunts.

In addition, The Cave was a safe and inviting place to rest and recharge for those who enjoyed hunting with a solar oven to cook your favourite foods. For those who enjoy nature and wild hunt, we have also designed additional features for your outdoor enjoyment including a camping site at the end of the Cave and an access and emergency exit.

  • You would need to gather supplies to prepare for your hunt
  • You would have to bring with you some gear such as knives, tents, survival gear, food, water, sleeping bags, ropes and clothing.
