I have some small parts that I want to paint with Rustoluem Bar b que paint. This needs to be baked after it is dry. The oven is obviously out because of the smell. Any ideas how to pull this off?

Just get a old oven and put it outside. I have one out in the shed that the burners don't work, but the oven does. Use it for canning and what ever else.

Over an open fire pit? On the grill? Laid on top of the muffler of the truck?

I'll lend you my daughters easy bake oven if that will help. It gets hot enough to bake a cake.

Or like suggested, maybe use a grill ? A gas grill would work great and can be adjusted to keep a steady temp, plus it's outside

EDIT: And what ever you do, don't try heating them parts up in a propane fired turkey deep-fryer indoors.

I guess the fire pit will be the best bet. Maybe inside a container?

Not knowing the size or number of parts... If I were without any alternative heating methods and if I was scared of my wife, I think I might try a heat gun.  It might take a while, but you can generate a decent heat if the part is inside a container and away from the blast of the blower.  An oven thermometer inside with the parts would be a big help. (Maybe she' would let you use just the thermometer?):D

I painted some grab hooks for my FEL yesterday and they set inside an 8"X10" cardboard box all night with an 85w light bulb in a reflector clamp lamp shining down into the box.  Not a "bake job", just a warming to enhance the drying.

The Easy Bake idea may have been meant as a joke, but the concept would work. They are really only an enclosed space that uses the heat from an incandecent light bulb to bake. A large box turned upside down over your parts with a drop light under it would do it.
