255 is really getting it up there pretty good. It has lots of possibilities, get a couple of Cornish Game hens and cook those in your oven, one at a time(maybe both).

Instead of the little mirrors, concentrate on an automatic tracking device to follow the sun.

Great job Oops! Now you can save on your utility bill and keep the heat out of the kitchen on hot summer days. ;)

Set the angle one-half the latitude of your location. Then, put reflectors around to bring the sunlight into your reflectors.

That will give you the highest efficiency.

I found that snow did that for me, reflecting the light into the solar panels, I did not need the "sun-hours" claimed.

edit: I don't have a solar cooker.

I am commenting only on my own experience with my solar panels.

Would this type of stove warm enough in the dead of winter to do some cooking?

Nice job Oops. I like how you get a lot of features into an affordable package. Especially the little things like pot hammock and your shadow peg to help aim towards the sun. Neat to see.

Thanks for sharing 8-)
