It is so simple and our troop uses them all the time.
Take a sturdy large box. Not too big. A box that was used to ship a
14-15" Computer Monitor is an excellent size. Completely line the
inside of the box with aluminum foil (reflective side out). Seal the
top of the box closed with duct tape. Cut a hole in the front (door
to pass baking trays in and out of. Put steal rods or hangers through
the middle of the box (forming a rack to place your baking trays).
Place an inverted pie tin in the bottom and then another pie tin
(right side up) on top. This is where your charcoal goes. It is
important to have the inverted pie tin in order to insulate the bottom
of the box from the charcoal. Place 1-2 pieces of charcoal in box per
100 (Fahrenheit) degrees of cooking temp. It is easy and simple. The
only key here is make sure that there is absolutely NO exposed card
board inside your box. This all must be covered with aluminum foil,
otherwise your box will ignite.
