Drum In Gas Range/Oven?
While browsing I noticed that RK Drums has a new front-opening 12lb. drum and was pondering the idea that this might be able to be used in a conventional gas home range/oven. It could fit, I believe, in some ovens. The question is of BTU's. Most conventional gas ovens go to about 31,000 BTU,s. It is usually suggested to go with about 50,000 or more for 12 lbs. in a BBQ grill. I was wondering if the better insulation and temperature control of a gas oven might mitigate the lack of BTU's in this instance? There are a lot of cheap used gas oven out there. Nothing better to do. Just putting it out there.

That's a good question. If it's a convection oven, it would be better. I don't know about the heat, but you would have to put an exhaust on it together the smoke out, and probably add a motor so the rpm is closer to 50-60. I wouldn't think it's much different than modding a Bronco or Baby George.
