Topic: BBQ drum roasting question (10 msgs / 188 lines)
1) From: Paul Jolly
OK, so I've decided that I need to go with some other kind of drum roaster rather than the Ronco...and all such roads eventually lead through Ron's drums.  So here's my question for those of you who do drum roasts in a BBQ: do you dedicate your grill to coffee roasting exclusively?  I'd like to still be able to cook my weekly salmon, chicken, and veggies in the same BBQ as I roast coffee in.  However, I know how smokey my Galloping Stir-Crazy roaster gets, and I don't want my grilled food to have that savory coffee-smoke flavor.
   
  Thanks for your help.

Paul,
I have a dedicated gas grill for roasting coffee because I only use=
 gas for coffee and wood/charcoal for BBQing.

Paul,
I went with the dedicated grill approach for my RK and am very h=
appy I did. If it is in the budget and you have space for it I would recomm=
end it. Since my roasting is done on a dedicated grill, I cannot speak to t=
he flavor impact.

I do 1-2 drum roasts a week, and 3-4 steak grills a month - we do
both.  My drum (non-RK) spills some beans, so I clean out the grill of
burnt beans regularly.
I pull the grills out and clean them after cookng steaks...
Never noticed coffee-smoke in my cooked meat, and the coffee is good
too.  BUT, I've not done fish, snake, alligator or Condor (I hear it
tastes a lot like Eagle) - so I can't speak to your passion for
salmon.
Regards,
Brett

I have one gas grill used for both cooking and coffee roasts.  I
cannot tell that any flavors are "cross-connected".  (Then again, I
don't get any blueberry taste from Harrar either...)

Paul I have a few customers that use the same grill for cooking and =

But I prefer a dedicated grill for roasting if for no other reason then =

Ron - The new grill I bought in October requires no significant
changes for either setup.  For coffee work, I just get out the motor
assy out, hang it on the bracket and plug it in. I don't have to
change even the warming rack inside the grill.  The drum fits in with
a little extra space to boot. I leave my regular thermometer in the
grill all the time and just poke in the thermocouple when I roast
coffee.
The grill has 3 burners and cost about $160 at Lowes hardware. If
anyone is curious as the the make & model I can go get it from the
grill instruction.

Just keep it pretty clean of smelly, greasy things and burn it off for 10-15 
minutes before roasting.  It works fine like that.

I would expect that Yirgacheffe would go well with say, salmon or trout....
