    Default Infrared Turkey fryer

    I see this for sale at OSH, would it work for melting wax? Could a bottom drain valve be added?

    Infared turkey fryer? Sounds... well it sounds like we need more information . To fry a turkey without turning the outside to charcoal takes some control and consistency of temperature, which radiant heat can provide but takes time and lower temps (hence the many-hour baked turkey compared to the faster deep-fried turkey). What's OSH?

    It runs on propane, so there is a flame somewhere. OSH is a hardware store chain owned by Sears.

    I will have to go look at it.

    Default Bee careful

    Where is riverrat when we need him? This sounds like an accident waiting to happen. I would sure consider anything with an open flame dangerous to melt wax with. I'll stick with my 'lectric melters I think.

    Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound. Flying faster than the pollen jocks on the bee movie the ratman has appeared. Only to advise all that bizzybee is the official beesource pyro. I am just the firemarshal. I wouldnt advise doing it near any uninsured structures. or for that matter I just plain wouldnt recommend it period. Open Flame + Wax - Common sense = Skin grafts

    while this model would be safer than other turkey fryers. It still has an open flame. He could try it but after a couple of trips to the propane fill station. I am sure he will change his mind towards an electric melter. It would be far safer and cheaper to run.
