Normally I roast about 550 gr at a time, and this leaves me with about a
pound for my customers.
Today I was roasting the third pound, and got distracted by C
complaining that the sink would not drain.
Easy fix.. so I left the roast and came back in time to shut it off,
only to learn that the paddle had jumped off my bread machine and the
roast roasted without being stirred.
Some beans were black, and some still green.
Decided to try a re roast.
This may work if you stay and watch it, but somehow I got distracted
again with a yard chore... fixing the garden hose.
I smelled something....
"OH....My..." said I
There was so much smoke I could hardly see the roaster!
I ran to it, and noticed that the Digital readout read 585F!
At last... spanish roast....
way beyond Spanish..
I quickly removed the turbo oven and killed all the power.
Dumped the beans into the cooler..
boy these beans have no weight!
Plenty oily though!
Real black and shiny... crispy too!
So much for the beans,
but is my PGR okay?
All of the SS bowl (roast chamber) was coated with very thick, black ,
almost a tar like substance.
Nope I would not want to roast any beans in that mess!
I mean, Roastium is one thing, but this is really bad.
So I took my PGR apart, and cleaned all the SS surfaces with plain old
fashioned spray on oven cleaner.
The silicon gasket at the bottom of the bowl is still fine, and the
Turbo Oven is none the worse for the experience.
It looks all shiny and new now, inside anyway, and ready to roast again :)
No, I did not actually see any flames, but the scene looked like a
couple of tires burning.
Gonna watch the roaster from now on, here in LHC.
