This project-turned-discovery might redefine your next outdoor adventure (if you’re keen on the edible fair involved). Vegans, feel free to avert your eyes.

These photos look like they were pulled from a rugged individualist’s Pinterest account if, say, the site were designed for any user interested in something other than tasteful redecorating, wistful travel or “fun” crafting.

Posted by the DIY website, Instructables, these photos demonstrate how to cook a hot dog with nothing but a Pringles can as ammunition.

The metallic and reflective interior casing of a Pringles can is, evidently, the perfect method for solar power cooking. Camping just got loads more crafty, if you ask me.

All this design requires to function is a semi-hot day (at least 80 degrees). At those conditions, the can can reach an impressive 170 degrees. This is apparently hot enough to cook meat.

So if you’re unafraid of ingesting raw franks, give this adorable DIY a whirl.
