Topic: Crack temps (3 msgs / 37 lines)
1) From: Jason Molinari
Hey, i was just wondering what people get as their crack temps using a grill therm, like the weber. Seems that my 1st crack doesnt happen till over 400, which is odd..my therm. in boiling water reads 210. I know i'm measuing the air temp, not the bean temp..but can the bean temp be that far off?
Just wondering what you guys get for your crack temps.. (hmm that doesnt sound so good:) )

I can put a pan of water on the stove and even after a couple of minutes I
can still poke my finger in the water without scalding even though the flame
just inches away is about 1200F!  So yes, the bean temp can easily be 200
difference.  Dan

First crack temps on 400 - 410 were not uncommon when I was roasting
with my Rosto and using a digital thermocouple.  Remember that you are
measuring the air in the chamber, not the actual temperature of the
beans.  This temp will vary from roaster type to roaster type.
