As preppers we are always looking for effective ways to cook off-the-grid, so we’ll be better prepared, should the SHTF one day. DIY solar ovens, rocket stoves and cob ovens, we’ve covered them all previously on K.W.N… We haven’t however covered the applebox oven, mainly because I had never heard of it!
It doesn’t come simpler, cheaper or easier to build than an applebox oven. If you can stick foil to a box, you can build one! Once built your new oven will cook/bake food quickly and efficiently. In fact this oven uses 50% less charcoal cooking the same food in a Dutch oven. My advice – build your own DIY applebox oven and then store it in the loft/basement and forget about it until you need it.
