Topic: The first / second rest (27 lines)
1) From: Brian Hyde
Just wanted to drop a quick note and say thanks to at least Ed, although 
I think others mentioned it, about the suggestion of pausing between 
cracks.  (Can I say that?)  I noticed Tom mentioned it in his review of 
Ron's drum and it reminded me of it.  It really did do the trick.  
Reflecting on it, I think I had probably accidentally done this before. 
 Sometimes being absent minded I have let the temperature soar at the 
beginning and literally had to turn it off to let the temp come down. 
 Of course then I get absent minded again and let it drop below target 
and then I bring it back up to finish up shortly into second.  I have 
produced some of my best roasts during this type of screw up.  Now it 
makes sense.  
Congrats on the reviews Ron.  It looks like great craftsmanship.  I am 
glad I have passed your name along.  Hmmm... I wonder if any of them 
have ordered...
