Box Oven

1 Brick or flat rock
1 Corrugated cardboard box
3 Coat hangers
1 pk Aluminum foil, heavy-duty
1 Metal pie pan, old
4 Charcoal briquets, lit


Cover the inside and outside of the box completely with 3 or 4 layers of aluminum foil, including the flaps. Lay box on level ground so that the opening opens oven-style (front-door style is OK, too).

Straighten the coat hangers, then run them through the sides of the box about 2/3 of the way up from the bottom to form a rack.

Set brick in bottom. Place live coals into pie pan/pie plate. Put pan on brick (don't forget, the PIE PAN IS HOT! Use an oven mitt or hot pad).

Place food to be cooked onto coat-hanger rack and close oven door. Watch carefully, checking often. Each live coal makes about 80 degrees Fahrenheit.
