As you can see in this picture, the box is on its ‘back’ and doesn’t look like a typical ‘box cooker.’  When the sun is low (this was taken Nov. 1) it works best in this configuration and almost resembles the ‘wedge cooker’ I described before.  The two wings and small reflector inserts function exactly the same.  Even here in New Mexico the sun is fairly low in the sky in the winter and will strike the cooking pot better in this position.  The glazing (plexiglass) is held in place with two little clamps made with ¼ inch bolts, wing nuts and wood blocks.
