Thanks for the addition to the group. Seriously considering building a drum roaster along the lines of oldgrumpus's. Love the design and craftsmanship.

Where have all the pan roasters gone?

Sounds like a Peter Paul and Mary song, LOL

No activity here for years. Everyone intimidated by more "sophisticated" roasting methods or what?

Well, I'm a cast iron skillet roaster and I'm not ashamed. :)

For larger batches (8-16 oz) I actually use a dutch oven (fewer escapees LOL). For smaller batches (5-7 oz) I use a cast iron fryer pot. Gas stove on slightly higher than medium heat. The range hood handles the smoke because I replaced the fan motor with a stronger one. Usually keep a constant flame throughout, but with some coffees I ramp up for the first crack.

Seems that 8 minute drying phase and 1C at 12 minutes works best. For larger beans I need a slightly larger flame to hit that mark and vice versa.

Stir with a large whisk very briskly. Even with the higher sides of the dutch oven and frying pot I still get some escapee beans.

Cool by pouring back and forth between two wire mesh strainers outside. Chaff gets removed during this operation.

They are still around. There is not too much to discuss unless you are starting out.
It is a simple process that takes some mechanical effort and gained knowledge of coffee roasting.
People seem to like over-engineering and automating things and you can't get any simpler than pan roasting.
