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.

Love Has No Age: How I Met My Future Husband At Age 17

I grew up like most little girls of this generation (with no shortage Barbie dolls or”Rugrats” episodes). I also started planning my “princess wedding” at a young age, so I was pretty much a pre-pubescent Gen-Y cliché. I pictured myself wearing a dress that looked like it belonged atop a wedding cake rather than on […]

Last week, Marvel Comics released promotional artwork for its new, alternate universe Spider-Woman. The photos include one unforgivably demeaning variant cover image drawn by Milo Manara. In the drawing, Spider-Woman crouches on all fours with […]
