Topic: New home made Ice bucket roaster (11 lines)
1) From: Jim De Hoog
I will be getting pics for those that have requested.  I haven't had time for a second roast.  I can't devote as much time as I would like this weekend. 
   
  The ice bucket is 5 1/2" wide at the bottom & tapered to 8 1/2" wide at the top with the mixing bowl attached to the top, the overall length is 12".  I straightened the forks on on one meat fork, formed a loop at the ends and riveted it to the bottom to support the drum so I can probe the drum while it rotates.  The rotisserie spit & mounts are set at a slight angle so that the drum rotates parallel with the burner.   A Dremel come in handy for notching and cutting out.  
   
  I think that I will be trying out on the second roast using my electric drill drill as the motor to turn the drum.  The 5/16" spit fits nicely into the chuck of my 3/8 variable speed drill.  Should have more than enough speed and power to turn the drum with a pound or two of beans in it.  Will just have to see how I will keep the drill solid.  But I have a thought about that already.
   
  I'll update you when I got the pics up.
