What Brett didn't say was "because" those electric oven roasters don't have
the btu's to roast in a timely manner. You'll end up with flat tasting baked
coffee. They could be modded adding more heating elements to be a half-way
decent setup.

What Mike did't say was the RK Drum gets you a wholely decet setup, in
fact, excellent.  Ask the list here about drums...
The issues are:
  Enough heat to roast rather than bake
  Enough motor to turn 5-10lb of beans when you want
  Enough durability to use it again next year.
I love my RKDrums motor.  I already have a drum I built, but would
encourage anyone to go to Ron Kyle in a heartbeat.
Also, Mike and I always agree, usually in a complementary fashion...
Alas, the pursuit of great coffee did not allow me to talk much about
the javapro-crc you mentioned...

I bought a drum off of this ebay-er. I am happy with it.  I didn't have
enough cash to buy an RK or I would have.  I do have an RK motor and I am
absolutly happy with it.

Hey Laura - thanks for the good report!  How do you use the drum you
bought?  Did you get the whole roaster?  WHat do you like best?  What
do you wish was different, if anything?

I should clarify, I bought a drum from this ebay-er for my bbq grill.  I use
it to do anything from 1/2 lb to 5lb of greens.  What I like best would
probably be that I can do large batches with this drum.  I started out with
the motor that came with the rotisserie that I bought at the HD but quickly
switched to an RK motor.  BIG difference!
I do have a friend who bought a similar item that Richard presented.  It is
a drum inside a small rotisserie oven. It takes him 45 minutes to reach 2nd
crack!  Way too long.

I have an RK motor and a home-made drum that does up to 5lb it
seems...  Usually around 3-4 is my normal load....  The RK motor is
strong enough and steady enough to last, and I am very thankful for
that...

Brett
