Solar Cookin Ribs

My latest home made solar oven. I used two thin lexan sheets for the window. They have already warped and wrinkled loosing my tight air seal. I have been doin more solar cookin and gettin pretty good with ribs. I got St. Louis style pork rib marinated and rubbed then cool chilled for 30 hours. Solar oven cooked 5 hours and topped off 12 min. on the gas grill.
Didn't do so good on the beans. I soaked less than 1/2 cup of pinto beans overnight which swelled to almost fill my 28 oz. jar. Even after soaking overnight with that much volume they never got soft. Early this summer I was successful with unsoaked beans but it wasn't very many and I cooked them all day.
Check out these solar ribs. I went ahead and put them on the gas grill on high a few minutes each side to get a little char goin and added some sauce.
They were tender juicy and tasted really good. :)

Great looking ribs. Beans do take a while to cook.
