Hello from SW Ontario, Canada
JamesR
Hi all, I've been a home roaster for 10 or 11 years. I got lucky with my first thrift store hot air popcorn popper find - a Popcorn Pumper - and it has been my workhorse for all these years. I've been meaning for a couple of years now to get more scientific in my approach to roasting, and this year I'm modifying my trusty roaster with a thermocouple and a PID. If I can get it to work to my satisfaction, I'll build myself a new roaster in the next year or two.

I currently roast for me and my wife and for my in-laws. My next roaster will be bigger so I can roast for a few more people. I don't think I'll ever go pro, but who knows?

My background is in mathematics & computer science, with a heavy emphasis on electrical engineering, industrial control, and test & measurement systems.

Hello James and welcome to HRO. Plenty of good stuff here for the engineering geeks. Looking forward to your build.
Cheers, Scott

Another welcome to HRO! We look forward to your build when you get things underway. Now, if you happen to undertake a gas fired fluidbed, make sure you put some pressure on the guy that first posted to your intro post to post some plan sketches (for general consumption)on a basic "Jetroaster" gas burner. I've been drooling for the chance to build one for a few years now so help me gang up on him!

Thank you for that subtle reminder! I haven't forgotten, I promise.
Cheers, Scott

No rush Scott! We're going to be moving into a leased condo in South Carolina for a few months and then move into a house once we find one in our intended area (with enough space for a large woodworking and roasting shop), then time to get unpacked, setup shop etc...

At least 6 to 8 months before I'd be able to jump back into fabbing roaster parts and making sawdust.

But, now that I've let the cat out of the bag, you might get some pressure from other's here at HRO!

Thanks Allen. Given my background in electrical engineering, I'll try to stick to an electric roaster, at least for now. If I ever need something bigger (i.e. more than 1kg), it'll probably have to be propane.
