A detailed study of a solar cooker used for meat grilling was performed. Experiments were undertaken to test the effects of several parameters on the cooker performance. A mathematical model for the solar grill was developed. Heat balance equations were solved using the fourth-order Runge-Kutta technique. It was concluded that an air-tight oven with double glazing and maximum meat charge will give the best performance and highest efficiency for the solar grill.
