Sorry, I missed the start of this thread, but her is an idea other
than the charcoal reflector oven.
First you obtain a large can (5 gallons like you get the three kinds
of popcorn in at Christmas), could be a clean "garbage can.
You punch a few holes in the top of the can.
Inside the can put empty metal pop cans, as many as will fit to cover
the bottom, usually 12-15.
Fill the pop cans full of water.
On top of the pop cans put cabbage leaves, to keep food from falling
into the pop cans.
On top of the leaves you can add : potatoes, onions, corn, chicken
Put the can on top of charcoal or wood coals and let it cook.
The "garbage can" acts as a steamer and you can easily cook all you
food at once.
It takes 45 minutes to one and half hours depending on what you are
