This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the sand badge in Food Prep and Preservation

To complete this badge bit, you must cook at least 2 cups of grain in a solar oven.  (Note that this BB is part of a 4 part adventure in cooking grain in four different ways. Pseudograins are also allowed, but all four ways of cooking must be the same food prepared with 4 different cooking contraptions.)  

Here are some solar ovens threads at permies:
 - Making non-toxic cheap solar ovens
 - Review of the Sun Oven
 - Review of the Solavore Sport

There are many types of solar ovens you could make yourself.
Here is an even bigger array of plans for do-it-yourself solar ovens.

This is an article and infographic by GoSun on types of solar ovens:

This is an overview of a few of the types of solar ovens out there:

This is a basic how to of using a solar oven:

I cooked wild rice in our solar oven today!  Two cups of dry rice and 2.5 to 3 cups of chicken broth.  Next time I'll put in a bit more broth.
