Larry,
The next level is a realative term depending on who you talk to=
 - can you provide any additional information like what batch size, price r=
ange, etc. 
I personally moved up to an RK drum a few years back from a s=
plit wired P1 and have been very happy. I have heard great things about the=
 Hot Tops, but they are a bit pricey. There seems to be a good level of exp=
ectation for the Behmor at $299, but we will have to see.

Larry,
      There is no best roaster for everyone.  Much depends on your  
lifestyle.  If you are a tinkerer, you can have a lot of fun working  
with heatgun/bread machine or other hobby constructed roasters.  If  
your lifestyle can best be described as suburban, the Ron Kyle  
roasting drum for a good BBQ is probably best fit.  If you are an  
apartment dweller, I would recommend, based on Tom's comments,  
waiting for the Behmor 1600 that is about to hit the market.
       My own inventory of roasters includes the following.
           Three electric hot air popcorn poppers
           Two of the stove top hand stirred popcorn poppers
           The restaurant style kitchen range, I actually have two of  
these at the moment, that can drive a wok
               or about any of more than a dozen pans.
           The old wood burning stove that can drive a wok.
           Two Androck over the fire popcorn poppers to roast over  
pecan wood fires.
           Two home made drums, neither as good of Ron Kyle's but I  
made these back when he was            		designing his.
           Three heatgun/bread machine combinations, only two work  
right now since I lost one of the stirring 		paddles for one of the  
bread machines.
            And, my current project, which is nearly as finished as  
these kinds of projects get, a bread machine stirring a roasting  
chamber of three nested stainless steel bowls heated by a Sunpentown  
turbo oven runing a Nano-Carbon Fiber and FIR heating element, with  
chaff removal and cooling by directly connecting a shop vac to the  
nested bowls.

8) From: miKe mcKoffee
Dang Pecan, that's quite an array of roasting tools! All I have is a coffee
dedicated carbon steel wok, P1, Wearever popper, 3 Rostos, IR1 and CCR
HotTop. Maybe I can make up for the shortage with "current project" USRC 8#
max capacity 'Bad Boy' with PLC touchscreen profile controller and ethernet
computer interface for data capture and unlimited profiles! 
Just finished fourteenth back to back CCR HotTop batch with a few more to
go. Gonna be a busy Wed-Fri finalizing bean selection for our first espresso
blend!
Also have a couple vendor pre-roast blended decafs to roast for espresso,
but they don't count.
Time to dump the cooling tray and grab the next batch-o-greens:-)
