Topic: cold roast.. (2 msgs / 28 lines)
1) From: ConradArms
It doesn't get that cold in North Carolina, but I was having problems when  I 
roasted in my I-Roast in my unheated garage when the temp. was below freezing 
 or just plain cold.  So, I tried roasting in the house but the fire  alarm 
went off.  This is now the process I use in the winter.     I keep my I-Roast 
in the house and when I roast I take the machine to the garage  and put it in a 
tall cardboard box while roasting (learned this trick from  SM home roast 
list).  The heat generated while roasting keeps the roaster  nice and warm.  All 
my roasts have since turned out perfect.
 
Good luck..............keep warm............Dorothy

I had a similar experience over the Christmas holidays. I brought along my
heat gun, roasting bowl, etc, to Madison WI in order to demonstrate roasting
to a friend. I went to his house and saw right away there were going to be
problems. We were roasting in his unheated garage. While it wasn't
exceptionally cold, the HG cord could not reach the wall socket and the only
extension cord he had was 100 feet, and, in addition, the stainless steel
roasting bowl was on the concrete floor. After quite a while roasting with
very slow results I moved the roasting bowl into a cardboard box, which both
got the stainless steel bowl off the concrete and allowed the heat to
accumulate a little. That worked a lot better.
