Peter, 
Sorry, I don't have the time to reverse engineer our USRC 3k for you. You
might be able to get someone else local and/or attending PNWG VI to "go in
deep" with camera and notepad at the ready.

Hi miKe,
Thank you for getting back to me. I really do know that you do not have 
any time for reverse engineering.
I apologize that I asked so complicated a question.
Mostly I am curious if the flame path is separate from the roasting 
chamber.
In other words, is it like a BBQ grill where the products of combustion 
get to roast the beans, or does the burner heat a separate chamber, this 
heat used for roasting, and the burner gas goes off by itself and not 
through the beans.
Not sure why this really matters except that if you want to get good 
coffee, why take a chance that some unburned hydrocarbons are getting 
mixed with your beans.
Maybe there is not enough to matter, but I was just very curious.
With electric roasters, there is not this problem, but with a Turbo Oven 
there is smoke recirculation.
So far my taste buds are not equal to the task of tasting any 
differences between beans roasted with a poppery or beans roasted with a TO;
but, you know how we folks on this list like to get picky about details :)
respectfully,
PeterZ
