Box Oven

cardboard box oven recipes


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


1.  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).

2.  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.

3.  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).

4.  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.
