From a heat source that glows - lamp, rod or flame. I don't think
that heat radiating from a hot oven wall will be reflected.
Not that it makes much difference with foil, but my oven glows a lot.
Radiant electric coils. Mostly, even with the shiny side whichever
way I want it, I use it to keep selected portions moist and keep them
from getting too crispy, e.g. turkey wings. For the small difference
it makes, I try to do shiny side out.
Not something I become hysterical about.

Only a fool would refuse to believe in luck. Only a damn fool would rely on it.
