Thinking about converting a "proofer"

Post by shortlived » November 4th, 2016, 11:15 pm

Will something like this work?

https://www.amazon.com/HeatMax-Commerci ... ds=proofer

I plan to find something used/broken for this build but I wonder if i find some kind of warming oven can I assume it will handle 400F degrees?

any advice great appreciated.

:welcome: I'm pretty sure that it could. I have a friend that has a pellet smoker and it's built out of really thin metal and it does alright.

Don't see why not.


If it's tourist season, how come I can't shoot 'em?

Should make a cool unit. It will definitely have a high capacity. :kewl:

Thanks for the replies, after much reading I'm more torn before I started! Now I like the look of the gravity feed stumps clones.... So many options
