Have you thought about making your own live CD ? See for instance

Never tried it myself, so cannot comment on how easy it is, but if it
does what you said you could simply(?) rebuild a live CD, with your
custom application included. No need for some other external device.
Just a thought.

You then could make a XXX.deb for it (Possibly also needed for the above
live CD step).
