Topic: WAS:Stainless Steel NOW: stuffing the drum (2 msgs / 53 lines)
1) From: Oaxaca Charlie
 Controlling the temp ramps carefully and keeping the rpms up (I
rechecked mine-45 rpm) keeps my roasts quite even, and very
proper,thank you. The "agitaters" run the length of the basket
at an angle moving the beans from one end to the other as well
as stirring them. I start by filling the basket 1/3 full. It
finishes almost 2/3 full. It's easier to roast with a smaller
load, no question.  I'm pushing mine to max capacity only
because there's a line of people waiting for some.

That's good information to know Charlie.  When I build a larger drum roaster,
I'll try large batch sizes like that.  I'm stuck with one pound roasts now on
my BBQ Grill roaster, which really isn't 'that' bad.
