Greetings from Blue Ridge Mts of Virginia
Tele Savalas
Hello, name is Mike and I'm a roast-aholic.

Not really - we have been using a Behmor 1600 for years now, and it took me two batches to appreciate the timing of first and second cracks and it has been downhill from there. The spouse prefers to walk away, so her roasts are hit-and-miss. We basically just roast a pound of something every week in the summer, perhaps a bit more often in the cold season.

We both appreciate great food and wine, we grow our own vegetables and herbs in the summer. I make my own hot sauces. I also smoke a lot of meat goodies on my Big Green Egg and make my own jerky using a Jerky Cannon and dehydrator from LEM.

Other interests include music (I play lead guitar in a weekend warrior band) and I build guitars in my spare time. My expensive tastes and hobbies are accommodated by my long hours as a radiologist, as are frequent trips with wife and kids to snorkel in warm waters.

That's me in a nutshell! Looking forward to checking in now and then!
Welcome Mike!

Hey Mike, another welcome from another HRO guy.

What part of the world do you reside in?

Also, be sure to put a thread together in the Behmor section and tell all about methods/profiles that have given you good results.

Thank you, Jack and Allen. Jack, I'm in Blacksburg, VA, a small mountain town with a huge university. Therefore, high-quality freshly-roasted coffee beans were never in short supply, but it is so much more convenient and affordable with the Behmor. And I've learned so much in the process of shopping beans. It's just like learning about wine or anything else that is a proper result of a man working the Earth and treating the product with respect.
Welcome Hokey Mike.
