 I was using my HP and FR for roasting samples, but I
finally figured out how to get good small roasts in my
grill that are much better than the unmodified tiny
electric machines. Split wiring and adding a variac and
thermocouple to the FR would be even better, but too much
work for me to consider.

 I thought that Ed's homeroaster.com site would have that
info, but I could only find the mods for poppers and
Precison units there. Jim Shulman has a modified FR, and
probably a site showing it, but I don't know where. Mike's
modified Rosto gives the best control I've ever seen for
any kind of roaster. Maybe this reply post will get someone
out there you send you the info you need. With a chamber
extention, split wiring for heater and fan, and a variac a
FR should be cabable of real precision roasting for any
profile you want to try (and there are so, so many...).
 Good luck with that,
  Charlie

I am roasting on a RK drum behind the store(a small rural village!) for 
our coffee shop and roast coffee business, however my wife, the 
proprietor and CEO, still uses two HotTops (under a hood) at the 
serving counter for atmosphere, and as a conversation starter.  When 
customers see all the bags of roast coffee vs. the two little roasters, 
they must think she roasts around the clock!

This is my third attempt to post this in three days.  Now, all three 
will probably show up!

It's posts like this that makes me want to make a "good coffee" map.  I 
remember not too long ago how casts and crew would stock up with coffee 
and little brewers to tour out of the area.  LA and the south in 
general was known as a coffee waste land, so everyone brought there 
own.  An actress I knew brought a Colman stove and a moka pot and would 
set the stove up on the floor of the hotel room!

Connelley,
       What part of rural, almost all the state, Nebraska are you  
in?   I'm going to be making a couple of drives through the area  
later this summer and in addition to  Tractor salvage yards, a decent  
coffee place would be worth visiting.

Although I don't have a grill drum yet I would like to
hear what you figured out about getting good small
roasts from it. Thanks.
