Oh, COOL.  
How to make a portable air conditioner for $10. (Warning: may cost slightly more than $10, depending on where you find your materials.)

How to make an evaporative beer (or soda) cooler. Terra cotta pots, a tin can, sand, and water, and you're good to go. Less useful in humid climates.

How to make a meat smoker. Again with the terra cotta pots. Awesome.

How to make a solar cooker. I really do have to try this out. Hurricane season is coming.

I have a smoker out of terra cotta pots and I love it. I use it alll the time.

Oooo, a solar cooker. I keep meaning to cobble together one of those - my back yard gets splendid summer sun. But it will have to wait until I have the weta house, the nectar-bird feeder, the wood-burning stove...

I wonder if you could make a bigger version of the cooler and use something that will evaporate more quickly into the atmosphere?
