I m new to this forum, but found this discussion to be exactly the line of questions I have…Rather than use a home oven, I figured I would use my outdoor BBQ grill since I have 5 burners, so I can turn 3 on and 2 off to use indirect heat to get a temp that is 350 and below so for small items I could create whatever temperature I want without direct flame on wood.

Has anyone found any rough rule of thumb for what temp and for how long based on xyz thickness? Or is the best way to drill a tiny hole and put a meat thermometer in there to to judge if it has maintained 140 for over 30 min?

I bought a cheap microwave for my shop at a garage sale that I use for drying turning blanks. If your goal is to kill bugs, depending upon how big your chunk of wood is, 30-60 seconds at 50% power should kill them.
