Try toasting bread with a welding torch. :D It doesn't take long.
Select the correct heat source.

I would put the heating coil inside what amounts to a slightly larger "barrel" with some wire running parallel to the barrel, similar to what is in an off-the-shelf toaster.

That way, part of your barrel doesn't have to be glowing orangy... Less heat capacity, and it won't get sucked off into the rest of the barrel as quickly. You could fine-tune for the correct toast stiffness.

You could even have a retained sabot (more like wadding) for better sealing.

Since there's no limit to size, you could have a 10' rectangular tube barrel...

The heating coils could be used to heat the air, increasing the local SOS. Supersonic toast, anyone?

Is there a standard for the bread? If not, you could use what I believe was called "hard tack" in colonial times. then you could just go hybrid.

I've eaten hard tack. It is like a heavy cracker. It is brittle and would shatter.

No offense... but I've eaten hardtack as well. I personally think it would hold up to the shock of a hybrid, it would just come out missing a little. It's really not THAT brittle, it's about as brittle as totally blackened bread. It doesn't shatter per se, it just breaks off at the edges.

If you can, I'm all for TRYING to toast hardtack. Good luck.

Good idea ramses. I doubt the toast would cook with a layer of stainless to go through anyway. I could have a larger barrel, where the toast begins and contains the heating elements, which is joined to a barrel above which is an appropriate size.

I daresay the height is measured from the top of the toaster (otherwise i could change the case for a regular toaster, make it 10m tall and get the record instantly).

That is what I poorly attempted to explain
p of the toaster, but it is possible that it is the distance traveled.

Even if it was from the top, you just accelerated the toast for 10 meters, as opposed to 1-2"... lots of velocity

Now we need to find a way to make the toast aerodynamic, and keep it from tumbling.

Even if you didn't use hard-tack, some custom, non-rising bread could be used (if the rules permit). kind of like special hard, high-density pumpkins for the pumpkin-chunkin competition.

I could soak a piece of toast in epoxy resin :D

I do believe it still requires to fit the basic perception of toast- i.e. no rocket shaped bread. I'll look into harder breads though.

Hmm... I've started cutting sheets to make a prototype "barrel" from, but it's hard work.

I was thinking..why not fire it from a tube? Roll it up loosely, cook it in a cylinder, fire it from the same sized cylinder. If it doesn't return to it's usual shape after firing butter could be added to aid flexibility. Thoughts? It's substantially easier to get (or make) a cylindrical barrel than to make a rectangular one. Plus, I daresay I could kick it much harder while it's rolled up.

just buy some rectangular tubing that fits bread good, cut it a bit to make it perfectly

That's not as easy as it sounds...

Anyway, I should be able to accelerate the toast much quicker if it's rolled up.

But then only one side would be toasted... How about a cylindrical barrel with a center guide-rod. At the bottom, the guide rod is mesh, with heating elements to toast it evenly. You'll have to experiment with it unrolling, but more flexibility in the barrel is pretty much the definition of what you DON'T want. The cylindrical approach also restrics the use of a stiff custom bread. The custom bread could be engineered to have a higher sectional density, making it a better projectile.

For a rectangular barrel, you could get two pieces of steel channel, and weld/solder/epoxy/whatever them together with the walls whatever length you need for the thickness of the toast. Go for really thick bread.

LOL.
still i like my crossbow toaster idea cause it will be very efficient and not have to worry about leaks and pistons
