Subject: Thermometer?
 

]]]]Greetings. I operate a coffee mill in Australia. We usually just sell DGB but are getting a 15 kg has garanti later In the year. Although I've done sample roasting in a 300 gram gas roaster I thought I'd experiment with something a little larger and more challenging so I built this wood fired last week which may be able to handle 3 kg (drum is changeable). I'm using reject macadamia nuts in shell from the farm next door as fuel. So far so good - the nuts get really hot at first but settle down to burn even and slow. Not sure whether to use a stick thermometer (first one overheated) or infra red. No experience with infrared.... any suggestions?

Here are some pics with one of a successful roast (cooling is done with a drum from a clothes dryer - not pictured)
