I ordered the Frontgate "roasting drum" on-line on Sunday.  Called today =
for order status and was told that the item is no longer available.  =
Someone, either here or on alt.coffee, said that Lowe's carries =
something similar.  I'll have to check them out.

The Frontgate cans have been unavailable for several months now.  I think
there is one just like it (maybe better) here:More expensive, but a lot cheaper than any 1 to 2 pound roaster you'll find">http://amos.catalogcity.com/cc.class/cc?pcd346749&CCSYN"More expensive, but a lot cheaper than any 1 to 2 pound roaster you'll find
anywhere else.  The Char-Broil Rotisserie is the other costly item at about
$30, including rod, a wooden handle, motor and some connectors you'll
probably use for the roaster project.  Get the one with one long rod.  I
bought one of the bad ones on Ebay that arrived yesterday. It has a split rod
(threaded in the middle), no wooden handle, and a 3 RPM motor.  The good one
comes in a long box with one 3' long rod and has the 6 RPM motor and a wooden
handle.  You'll probably spend another $10 or so on miscellaneous screws,
rivets, stirring vane material, pop rivets and such.  You'll also need
something to diffuse the flame.  I used 4"x4" perforated ceramic tiles by
Char-Broil.  They work fine.
Total project about $100 if you use the $60 can.
Easy to build.  No machine shops.
