Roasted about a pounds worth of Papua New Guinea. My brother who got me into roasting will be home for Thanksgiving so we'll get to chat and talk coffee over the holiday.

Gosh do I love that Salvador peaberry! I can't remember a season when I've
had so many excellent coffees from there, and Matalapa has been one of my
favorites.
cheers,
Scott

We're visiting our daughter and family in SoCal this week. I brought some Kenya Nyeri Tegu at full city. What a great cup. Happy Thanksgiving to you all.

6) From: Martin Maney
I've roasted Moka Kadir and Santa Ana Naranjo for myself, friends, and
family on Thursday.  The West Valley decaf was my first (and so far
only) ¼ lb roast on the new Behmor, need to taste it soon. And the
Guji... that wasn't roasted for the holiday as such, but it came out so
nice I can't not mention it.  :-)

7) From: Scott Thile
We've got several folks coming for Thanksgiving, including my oldest son,
who's as crazy about coffee as I am, and my Dad and Step Mom who like good
coffee, but don't like being challenged much.
I did two roasts of Brazil Cerrad DP Fazenda Aurea, one at about Full City
++ for SO shots, and the other at Full City for Clever Cone drip. It's not
my favorite, but seems forgiving and more accessible for the less
adventurous, and my son liked it as an SO for cappuccino last time we had
it. Also roasted Ethiopia Gera Jimma at Full City++ for SO shots. And some
of the Sumatepia SWP Decaf at Full City++ for a Decaf option. Haven't tried
that yet, but am excited about it since I'm having to drink more decaf
these days... Tom's review of it was very compelling!
Happy Thanksgiving all!

9) From: Scott Thile
No offense taken, miKe. I'm afraid you'd break down entirely if you saw my
set up and approach... I've had the start of 1st lined up with yours, with
at least 3 mins before I hit 2nd, but I lack the confidence in my set up
and my skills to shoot for anything where I don't at least touch 2nd.
Otherwise I just don't know where I am. No doubt I'd love your Gera Jimma
at city/city+ much better than anything I can pull off with it!
At this point I'm limited to a Whirley Pop with a thermometer (more for
comparison between roasts than accuracy) while using the side burner of my
outside grill. Had to replace the grill a couple of months ago, and have
not been happy with a roast since. Still re-calibrating to the new one.
I've been using this basic set up since I started roasting about a year
ago. I like roasting larger batches, or I'd be real tempted to get a Quest.
I'd really love to find or make something on that level that could roast
between 1 or 2 lb batches.
Very Thankful to have gotten into roasting, and to have all the excellent
options from SM and the expertise you all are so happy to share!

10) From: Brian Kamnetz
Scott,
I've heard in the past of people using a heat gun as an auxiliary heat
source when roasting over a grill side burner. You might consider a
stainless steel dog bowl over the burner, stirring with one hand and
holding the heat gun in the other. Heat gun temp is regulated by any
adjustment on the gun itself, and by moving the heat gun closer to or
farther from the beans.
I have used a small, cheap Milwaukee heat gun as the solitary heat
source and had no problem roasting half a pound. My usual heat gun is
a Master Appliance 751B and I easily roast a pound with that. (But
it's a beast, weighs nearly 4 pounds.) I would assume that a small,
light weight heat gun as an auxiliary to the side burner would quite
easily roast a pound.
There are other heat gun/dog bowl roasters on this list; maybe they
will contribute their wisdom.

Brian, Scott, When I used to roast HG/DB method I would take heavy-duty
aluminum foil and cover the back half of the bowl thinking that it would
keep more heat in.  Seemed to work..  Terry/Kona

13) From: sci
For Thanksgiving, I did a marathon roasting session today with my QM3,
which I absolutely love. It is so easy to extend the roasts from 1C into
2C, typically 3-4 min. I don't get runaway roasts or stalls. Slow, med, and
fast ramps are a snap too.
I roasted 4 batches of 1/2lb each:
1. Honduras COE Finca Ovidio--C+ (just after the end of 1C)
2. Brazil Cerrado DP Faz. Aurea--FC
3. Sumatra Onan Ganjang Cultivar--FC
4. Eth. Illubrador Camp Coop.--FC+
I'm going to making Hario siphons of the Ovidio, Ganjang, and Illubrador.
There will be a *$ barista at our gathering, so I'm hoping she will like my
"3rd wave" coffee.
Thanks SM!

14) From: Nathan Pozderac
(first post on the Homeroast list, been lurkin for little while)
Roasted two batches for thanksgiving...the first is a 50/50 blend of el salvador finca montecarlos and Ethiopian washed yirgacheffe. A really nice blend taken to a full city roast, or just shy of full city. 
The other was a Columbian Giraldo exotico taken to city plus. 
Both 8oz after roasting. Can't wait to share with my family.

Happy Thanksgiving one and all,
Out of Lurking for a bit.
Roasted some Bali Natural Monsooned,  Papua New Guinea, Sumatra Mandheling,
Ethiopia Harrar Queen City, Mexican Chiapas,  and a Costa Rica.     All
roasted on with a hottop I got about 6 months ago.   Also did some generic
(read cheap) El Salvador and Dominican Republic on a Syd & Jerry's to try
out the machine before I start roasting the good stuff on it to sell.
Hopefully I'll be getting a used food truck next week and I'm setting it up
for a mobile coffee shop with the ability to roast coffee in it.   Planning
on using it next year (using the time from now to then to alter some
things) at the regional market, local farmers markets, and other places.
 I'll also be selling fresh pre-roast, some small coffee related items,
 hot coffee,  and the like.    Probably not espresso as I can't drink the
stuff so I wouldn't know a good shot from a bad one.    Although I might
have a machine there to make some cappuccino, etc.   Most likely will also
have some things to eat with the coffee like homemade cookies, biscotti,
and the like.
George Miller
Drink more coffee and do stupid things faster and with more energy.
Never argue with an idiot.  He'll drag you down to his level then beat you
with experience.
