[pct-l] Heavy foil

I haven't tried this, but heard that large toss-away turkey pans or other
throw-away aluminum pans can be cut and work well. Cheap too. Meets my two
criteria: light and CHEAP! Careful about wind getting underneath though.
I've had that problem with my sody-pop can stoves which like most stoves
are sensitive to those cooling winds.
