  • Cooking part in the BBQ?

    I have a old BBQ can I cook the powder coating in the BBQ? lets say I put it on a metal tray so no flames fire upward onto the part.

    This is probably the first time i have been asked this. I like new approaches. Ok simple answer-- sure why not. Ok long answer-- if you can contain the flames away from the part and keep the temp consistant it could be done, however I will warn you that the results won't be perfect due to the smoke and ash passing the part will cause defects or blemishes.

      I kinda like this idea. Seeing as how until I get my oven built, I've been using a steel box with my torpedo heater attatched to it with ductwork. I have an old grill also, Wonder if I can heat it up with my torp and use it?

          It works ok. Just have to keep an eye on the inside temp. I use an old meat thermometer that goes up to 500deg. When the box gets up to 400 I shut the torp off and it usally holds the temp long enough to bake the part. So far no problem.
