1) From: Tom & Maria - Sweet Maria's Coffee
Hi all - you might remember that a LONG time ago I mentioned that I 
wanted to make a page dedicated to home built or heavily modified 
home roasters. Then, of course, I was really busy and dropped the 
ball on the project. Well, I picked that ball up again. The problem 
is some photos I received are now lost to the emails that explained 
the project, and vis versa ... I have emails that I can't find the 
photos for...
I posted some photos on the page (at the bottom) that I have no 
description/attribution for. If you recognize your handywork, or you 
know whose roaster those are, let me know!
Also, if you have a roaster project, I would like to include it. Send 
me a description and attach some SMALL pictures --- or--- send me a 
link to a photo page. Reply to george for this.
The idea is to have one page that offers a good assortment of 
projects, and hopefully provide some inspiration to folks who are 
best suited towards this type of roasting. I really like to check out 
these projects myself - I think they are amazingly creative. Anyway, 
please check out the page:http://www.sweetmarias.com/homemade-homeroasters.htmlTom

Hi Tom,
The big BBQ roaster is mine, as is the large wood-framed cooling tray, set
over a box fan.  The grill is a Brinkman 4 burner Pro-series 2500.  I think
it's capable of 42,000 BTU'S.  It has four independantly controlled cast
burners, which I covered over with ceramic tiles.  The drum itself I will
have to get back to you on this weekend.  I'll measure it and send the
specs.  It will roast 7lbs, but does it's best, I feel, in the 4.5lb range.
Thats where I have the most controll over the roast, I like to try and hit
full city in about 17min.  Less than 2lbs and over 5lbs I have a much harder
time hitting my target.
Thanks- thats a neat site!

I just added Phil Kniss' Heat Gun Bread Machine to this page, and was 
looking at all the great contraptions. Just wanted to remind newer 
people to check this out, because the level of invention is so
