Keeping warm in the winter
Here's a tip for those of you who have to roast in the winter either outside or in a garage with the door up to evac smoke. I used to dread winter roasting and freezing in the garage.

Recently we bought a parabolic heater (Presto from costco) and I have since taken it over for roasting. It doesn't heat the actual airspace so you can have wind whipping around and still be warm. I did 10# for Christmas and basically had just a hoodie and pants on with the heater directly on me and was hot despite the ambient temp being below 20F.
