Bert,

The rice I cooked was also long-grain brown.  The package says 1:2 ratio (1 cup rice / 2 cups water), but I was going on advice of expert cooks who said 2/3 ratio (2 cups rice / 3 cups water).  Who knows - maybe I was doing it wrong the whole time, but it tasted good.

I remember now I did 4 rice / 6 water only in my large oval roasting pan when cooking for a large group.  More typically I cooked 2 cups rice / 3 cups water, or sometimes 3 / 4.5.  That's about all that will fit in the 10 inch round pot.

That said, I recommend you adjust the ratio based on your own experience - probably the best route to success.

With the reflectors on it changed the center of gravity at the pivot point. The reflectors hang more forward because of the oven's top slant. This made it harder to adjust and keep it's position. I moved the pivot point about an inch. It seem to have help. will know better once I get the reflectors back on.
While I was at it I doubled up the L angle to make it stronger and two inches taller. Now I can slant the oven down enough for the morning sun. Also this makes the oven two inches closer to the sun. 😉

I change the tray to a stainless steel grill I had. The other one looked like it could be Teflon and appeared to be disintegrating from the heat so had to get that fix.

Not any sunny enough days until Thursday now. Probably another pot of Chili. May add some mushrooms and onions this time.
