I've been looking around for a way to add gas to my big oven. I saw somewhere where people were using those propane tube heaters as a way to heat the oven. I was wondering if you could use something like this. http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/111855465722
I know you would have to modify it some but it would be less noise and it would do away with the big azzed vent pipe you have to use with the tube heater. I was thinking about enclosing three sides and making a heat exchanger box around it with a small fan to move the heat into the oven. The unit would sit on the outside of the oven, be insulated and piped into the oven with 6" flu pipe. It would still need to vent but it seems to me that the normal venting through the door would be enough to do the job. The back of the unit where the gas burner goes into the heater would be left open so that you could see the flame and to provide air to keep the flame going.
Anybody see this as a viable option? The heater is rated at 200,000 BTU.
