Hi Jim,

I was afraid you would give me a chiding for not building my own.  One would think a retired person would have nothing but time but the PID parts are still in the box for my Silvia, my main stereo system needs to be built, and I've got to get my '29 Ford running while my grand-kids still will get a kick out of riding in it.  My "gearhead chops" are still somewhat intact but spread thin.

Thanks for the link.  There are some interesting things there.  The first thing which comes to mind is a mod to disable or mitigate the the cool-down wait Hottop imposes. I have come to view the heat left from my completed roast as the pre-heat for the next roast. Imagine my surprise that Hottop doesn't permit that.  In addition the preheat in the Hottop takes a long time.  I guess that should be no surprise with the relatively big roaster having about the same power which I was dumping into the little Z&D during preheat. You can bet I will be studying that mod.

Thanks,

Phil

..if I don't pre-heat my RC to 300F (outside of glass), then the first roast will take 60-90 seconds
longer than the following batches, first crack will linger, and the taste suffers...
