Outdoor cooking, which largely entails solar cooking efforts, often attracts unwanted visitors in the form of pests. No, I’m not talking about the overly curious neighbor who still doesn’t believe that solar ovens really work, no matter how many times you have shown him.

Of course, what we’re referring to, are those creepy-crawly, little critters that always seem to find their way into the human outdoor cooking scenario. Yes, ants, beetles, and flying and crawling insects of all species, just seem to automatically arrive when you set out your solar oven, or open up the grill. That anthill might be off the side of the patio somewhere, but those little guys know where the party is at!

Don’t let pest ruin your next outdoor solar cooking experience. A number of environmentally safe cures are now available to help keep the solar chef free from an insect invasion, and concentrating on the day’s solar cuisine. New, green pest control products can be kept nearby, or, may be used prior to setting up the solar cooker for the day. Yes, happily, a plethora of “green” bug repellent are there to help you.

Take a look at how you can rid your solar cooking experience of pests without the risk of hurting yourself and others.

Some regular users of solar ovens prefer to use a variety, or combo, of solar oven designs in a meal preparation. Sometimes this is very warranted, since the solar chef may be expecting a larger group for a feast.  Other solar cooks just like to experiment with solar cookers and cooking. Often, they find that they like to make certain meals in specific ovens. Factors influencing their decision include, the amount of solar radiation on the cooking day, the length of that radiation, how much time the cook has to prepare the meal, or feast, and the design of each oven.

So, the thing is, everyone who enjoys solar cooking, may want to put a pot of rice into the panel cooker, meat into a parabolic oven, and chili into a box cooker. Each might be able to make the other, but possibly not as well, or as quickly due to the length and quality of the sunshine on the given day. Whatever the solar chef decides, it is always a blast to solar cook and share a fossil fuel free meal with friends, family or acquaintances. The novelty never wears off and the chef will be fielding questions about solar cooking for days, weeks, and maybe years to come.
