Subject: Easy roasting setup for BBQ Grill
 

Hi All..  This is my first post here on the coffee geek and wanted to share my roasting setup that I've created for my grill.  It's really easy to set up using a behmor 1600 basket, requires no fabrication and can be put together with stuff you probably have in the garage.  I've roasted about 20lbs of coffee so far with it and seams to do a great job!  If interested you can read more about it in my instructables page.. http://www.instructables.com/id/BBQ-Coffee-Roasting/ and a quick video of it in operation here.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y7iisqXsZRA  Please let me know if you have any questions or any comments!

Thanks!
Aaron.

You get 10 points for a low budget solution - you would have got more if you'd made you're own drum though ;)

I expect you lose a lot of heat every time you open the lid but can you hear the cracks with the lid down?

A thermocouple type thermometer would be useful if you could get one cheap.


Cheers

Ian

Thanks Ian!  At some point I'd like to design / build a cool roaster but for now in the learning stage, I was just going for easy :)  You're right on opening the lid however.  I can hear the cracks through it but I've noticed that if I leave it down for the duration of the roast, I get a slightly smoked flavor in the coffee.  I don't think our grill has very good ventilation.  Putting a thermocouple thermometer is on the list!  

Thanks!
Aaron.
