First, select a good sturdy box. A good starting box is about the size of a printing paper box or lid to a banana box. Heavy moving boxes about the same size work great. Do not start with a large box. Do not use a box that has holes in it. Any tape that you use should be duct tape. DO NOT USE PLASTIC PACKING TAPE. Plastic tapes will melt.

Using a heavy duty roll of wide foil start covering the box, shiny side out. Start from the middle of the top of the box with foil about inch over the edge and work width wise first. Tape foil down with duct tape. Work down the side and into box. Make sure that foil lays flat and do not puncture the foil. Mold the foil into the side and corner seams. Continue wrapping until the edge of the foil is reached. Overlap foil edge by about inch and tape.

(NOTE: Some people only foil the inside of the box with a small overlap on the outside. This will work but covering the entire box makes it less likely to get burnt by hot ashes or coals).

Start the next piece of foil by overlapping the first piece by 2 inches or more based on the size foil being used. Repeat until the width of the box is completely covered. Repeat this step running the foil the length of the box, making sure every exposed piece of cardboard is covered. If there is any cardboard exposed on the inside of the oven, it will burn. Do not use any tape on the inside of the box. Tape can be used to hold foil in place on the outside only.
