miKe,
 
Thank you for the email.
 
I guess what really frustrates me is some, if not all of the negative
comments, concerns and false statements could easily have been answered or
assuaged had someone stopped in my booth, called or emailed me to ask
questions. In all cases written invitiations were and have always been
extended, yet not once has there been a call, question or visit.
 
As to coming up, now more than ever I'm trying to figure a way to get up to
demo the roaster and will keep you appraised.
 
Thanks again
Joe

Hi Joe,
 
No I'm used to idiots online who say things without any basis in facts.
Since I've been a fairly regular on Sweet Maria's List for 6+ years have a
pretty good idea who's credible and who tend to live in la-la land.  I've
also followed your CG posts and have no reason to believe what you've stated
is anything but factual. Yeah, some people think since you've partner with
Ronco as a marketing arm (which is basically how I understand it anyway)
somehow think it's a Ronco "product". Which it now I suppose is and yet
isn't as far as concept and design goes. Who gives a rib if Ronco wants to
sell them, other than that must mean they've been impressed enough by what
it can do! Which doesn't mean all that much or really nada to an advanced
home roaster performance wise but does to the quality of the build design.
 
I have no illusions that it's likely to be a "perfect" roaster for every
person's criteria, me included. And so what. I have issues with the Diedrich
HR-1 touting one pound "profile cabable" capacity! It doesn't really have
enough "juice" to profile other than heater flat out at max rated 1# load
and you get what you get. And we're talking at 10+ the cost of your 1#
roaster. 
 
Take care and hope to hear from you soon PNWG V wise.

Mike,
 
I was just on the meyers site and tragically as is so often the case these
days misquotes abound some of them personally quite upsetting given the
nature of the misquotes.
 
Given you were kind enough to invite me to the get together, should you wish
to have any clarification on any issue whether cylinder design, sizes,
roaster design, name, smoke suppression, Ronco's role etc. In other words
anything. Please feel free to contact me at my home: 619-229- XXXX (last 4 X
out by miKe)
 
I want to answer questions.
 
If you prefer I call you to answer your questions I'd be more than happy to
do so.
 
Doing this is the only way at this time I can work to eliminate misquotes
and any misinformation.
 
Best regards
Joe Behm
