Good morning all. Just finished a few days with Yemen Red Harraz. We liked it.

Oh yeah, almost forgot. I tested the strength of all of it when rolling it from my garage to the back yard I rolled a wheel off the sidewalk. Yup, it flipped over. I was able to slow the fall but didn't try to hold it off as this thing is heavy. Luckily my neighbor was home and helped me right it up.

Looked it over and ran it, everything was fine. What surprised me is it didn't separate from the stand as it just sits on the angle iron top. It is very close tolerance though and I suppose that kept it on the cart.


SOOO glad it all turned out OK! What a disappointment it would have been if it had been damaged! I've been learning a lot from your photos and choices for your components. So happy you're here on the forum!

Roaster: Old fire extinguisher with a crank, over a crab cooker, now building a drum roaster.

Thanks Ralph! Yeah working on this is a lot of fun and keeps the old brain cells from completely drying up. ( I hope ) Yup, this Forum is great! So much info here and folks willing to share.

I am really enjoying your build too. Some really nice work! You are going to have a primo machine.

Made some tweaks to the burners today. I was getting to much heat at a lower pressure so I closed up about 25% of the holes in the burners. I will see tomorrow ( weather permitting ) on how it works.

Originally I was concerned I wouldn't have enough heat, but I have plenty.

Here is a PSA.

My exhaust blower had a large screen on the intake side. I opened the exhaust tube up and it was full of chaff even though it was a large mesh a lot didn't go through.

Lucky it didn't catch fire. You do not want ANY obstructions in the exhaust system anywhere. DUH!

Lol! Sometimes the squirrel upstairs doesn't run fast enough; but, then again, he is old.
