I understand that some inkjet printers use heat during their printing process, similar to laser printers. This would make printer to a t-shirt transfer paper a potential disaster. Is it OK to use the HP OfficeJet Pro 8600 for t-shirt transfers?

Firstly it uses "HP Thermal Inkjet" technology
Secondly the transparency is not listed in it supported papers/media
Plain paper; Thick plain paper; HP Bright White Paper; HP Premium Presentation Paper, Matte; HP Premium Plus Photo Papers; Other inkjet papers; HP Advanced Photo Papers; HP Everyday Photo Paper, Matte; HP Everyday Photo Paper, Glossy; Other photo papers; Other specialty papers; Other Greeting Cards; HP Brochure Paper 180g, Glossy; HP Brochure and Flyer Paper, Matte; HP Tri-fold Brochure Paper, Matte; HP Tri-fold Brochure Paper, Glossy; Other brochure papers; Plain hagaki; Inkjet hagaki; Photo Hagaki; Card Stock
therefore we can say transparency film is not supported.

As an alternative, you can design T-shirts in HP Photo Creations and order them to be shipped to your home. HP Photo Creations is a free download at www.hp.com/go/hppc. Here's a screenshot from the program, showing a T-shirt we designed. (HP Photo Creations displays a realtime 3D preview of your project as you design it.)
Hope this helps,
