Nothing beyond the Behmor cooling cycle is needed.

Wondered what you all thought of this idea: The only thing I miss about my modified popper is I could stop a roast ON A DIME at a precise temp/roast (FC, ie).  When I hit cool on the behmor, I still can get up to 15 seconds of 1st crack.  I wondered if anyone knew which openings are the air inlet areas of the machine for the cooling fan. I assume the steel rectangle on the back is the only exhaust.  My idea would be then to figure out a way to turbocharge the cooling by blowing extra air through the intakes.  Any thoughts?

Oh boy!
MODS!
Whoppeeeee!
Just a thought, but you could place the whole unit in a sort of pressure 
chamber, with just the exhaust sticking out, something like one of those 
half-sized 55 gal drums, the cut short ones. Then cut a hole and attach 
your shop vac in blow mode. The air from the vac would blow through the 
entire Behmore and exit the exhaust!
You just need to get the lid on the drum tight....
Now I have  visions of someone swinging the whole unit around like a 
lariat, where that someone would be living where the night air gets very 
cold outside...
Maybe just blow a large fan at it to help cooling...
Well then, never mind.....
