A similar idea was demonstrated at a recent event but I missed the class due to teaching a class elsewhere.  This version had a huge tin can under the inverted clay pot/saucer where I assume there would be coals.  Looked like a good idea to me.  I plan to check to see if there was a handout.  Something to experiment with on the patio.
