Solar Oven Cooking. In Minnesota. In January.

Posted by Phoenix Woman on July 11, 2010

It took three hours of slow cooking, with the internal oven temperature at a constant 200 degrees F. To my mind this sounds like the ideal way to cook ribs.

The oven and accessories come from the Solar Oven Society of Minnesota, who are fine, fine people and do good work.
