Glenn is just jerking you around. I think solar stuff is neat. Other than some lights in my yard, I don't have anything solar, but like to read about it and especially from folks that are in the testing stage.

Will your oven heat Vienna Sausage and beans (which is a step above Glenn's meal of Cambell's Chunky Beef soup)

Yup. I've been working on a marketing slogan.

Actually, I bought the sun thing because I like new techie stuff, and it was lots cheaper than a new computer or camera.
Living in Moab, that thing is guaranteed to work. I remember frying eggs on sandstone at Dead Horse Point some years ago.

We do get a bit of sunshine here. I'll probably be using it to cook lots of tofu dogs.

If it can replace the heavy bbq for steaks and burgers it would be a winner. Need more info via youtube.

The mini with hot dogs looked good.

Yeah, I don't see how it can replace a grill for things like burgers and steaks Bruce. Wrong shape.

Nothing with hot dogs looks good.

Poutine now, there is something that looks great.

What I found cool about this new design, especially the GoSun Mini Kit, is it's portability. At less than 2 pounds it can go anywhere. No, it's not going to replace a BBQ or the 3 burner stove top in an Escape trailer but it will store in a back pack on a hiking trip or a bike ride where-by my Weber, sadly, has to stay in camp with my trailer. Solar cooking is not for everyone, especially those that find it difficult or confusing. I used to find the office photocopier difficult to use...compared to carbon paper.

So having spent some time looking around the 'net.... it does brown foods if one leaves the cooking tray ajar from the tube (steam escapes).

I could probably get used to cutting meat into pieces that would fit onto the tray. No hot dog fan here either Jim.

The C$400+ to get the sport into my hands in Canada is somewhat of a deal breaker, although saving approximately $100 per BBQ season in fuel costs would go a long way to mitigating that upfront cost. With a nod to Glenn, I'll just use up my existing cannisters this year and figure out what to do with 2016.

Hopefully someone brings one to Osoyoos.

I fill a 10# propane tank once or maybe twice a season.
