Solar Barbeque

Solar-powered barbeque
  [vote for,

Damn! I was just going to add a superbly halfbaked idea - the solar-powered barbeque - but a swift web-search shows me that about a million people have thought of this before me. I'm still going to add it though as even if it works, it *looks* halfbaked.

By the way, I am longsighted (US: farsighted) and so I can char (I was going to write 'cook', but this would be innaccurate) small amounts of food by focussing the sun's rays with my glasses.

       This is a spectacularly wonderful idea . . . and so easy to implement. Ingredients: 1 pig; 1 shovel; 1 bucket with lid and hose attached; 1 match; 1 matchbox; steel plate; raw animal flesh and onions; solar energy. Method: . . . naah, you get the picture.

       Damn! I was hoping this would be about rocketing food towards the sun.
