Best toaster oven/technique for baking bread?
Our oven is a 1962 Westinghouse that has finally given up the ghost. The main problem is that it's set into brick in a 22" hole, and any new oven we bought would be 24 inches. We can't afford to do anything like demolish the brick, and I don't really want a new vintage oven that will crap out on us again in 6 months. We love to grill, so it hasn't been much of an issue except that I love to bake bread. I got a beard machine, but can't get it to bake properly, but it does great dough. I would like to be able to make the dough, then bake it off in a toaster oven or on the grill. I haven't been able to find good information on grill baking or on what toaster ovens might be best for baking bread. I would love some suggestions for either! We have a propane grill, so the temp is somewhat predictable, but it's all flame/bottom heat. Mainly I am interested in the toaster oven idea. I tried slow cooker bread and it was a disaster.
