A thing you can try... hook the aluminum tubing to the handy IR2 connector =
with the IR2 directly under the rangehood and aim it at the collector surfa=
ce. The aluminum tubing I have leans against the intake surface if I set th=
e IR2 on an upside down pot. The tube delivers all smoke and odor directly =
to the rangehood... similar system as mentioned but with your parts. Should=
 be, at worst, there is some small amount of odor in the room for a short w=
hile... odor that smells really nice, to me.

Greetings!
I'm one of the newbies.  I just finished my 4th roast in an IRoast2.  I =
have a couple of insights to offer.  First, the fan motor really is so =
loud that hearing cracking is very difficult.  Too much loud R&R in my =
perfectly spent youth.  (This begs the issue of the possibility of too =
much loud R&R, but that's another list.)
The more frustrating issue is smoke and odor.  I have a really good =
kitchen hood, 900 CFM...not even close.  Tried in a bathroom, door =
closed and the fan going.  Worse.  Ended up in an alternate building, a =
shop/studio.  Ran a length of aluminum tubing out of a window and =
clamped to that neat circular metal thing on top of the IRoast2.  Still =
stunk  up the building.  Roasting coffee is an outdoor sport.  If you =
live in a colder climate you might have to enjoy home roasted coffee in =
the warmer months.  Bummer. =
Are all roasters that smoky and odorous? =
Cheers,
Bill

Neither my new Behmor nor my current iRoast2 produce much smoke (my first
iRoast2 DID and also made charcoal just by looking at the start button). As
for the odor...that's just part of the enjoyment of roasting.
If my wife was still alive she might disagree, but, I love it and the cats
don't seem to mind it.
