Hello from the Texas Gulf coast!
Redneck Packrat
New to roasting my own, suggested to join here by an acquaintance on another forum.

So far I've tried 2 popcorn air poppers, didn't like the results from either one. They got hot enough but my hearing doesn't allow me to discern the cracks with the fan whining at me.

Tried a batch in a #8 Wagner skillet that I just finished seasoning. Figured to use a 'virgin' skillet so as to not impart any food flavors into it (is this a problem? Should I dedicate one skillet to roasting?) and stopped it just at the rice krispys sound. Far and away better than the hot air batches prior to this. Now, to get a routine so that I have consistency.

I'll mostly be reading for now, I don't think I have enough experience to contribute anything worthwhile and there's a lot of knowledge on this forum for me to absorb. Looking forward to it!

I do not hear well. I have the same problem.
You can compensate by reading temperatures. And also RoR (Rate of Rise) if you use more complex temperature readouts, like logging.

There is a lot of information here, and elsewhere, about temperatures.

P.S. The term redneck came from union organizing of miners in West Virginia. They wore red kerchiefs.

Hi Red. Another welcome to HRO!

I'm originally from Houston and used to go boating with family at various places along the coast back in the 60's. I saw your facebook page and you've got some excellent looking specimens of cast iron!

On the dedicated skillet, yes, otherwise you'll have chicken fried steak flavors. Actually, this could be a big seller in some areas of the country!

I've often thought of a drum design using two cast iron sauce pans, cut the handles off, have them both on a shaft with open ends facing each other and a couple of agitation blades inside. Rotate the works over a flame and slide one side away from the other to dump into a cooling tray. I've always heard that cast iron is capable of achieving a nicer roast.

I did what turned out to be an oversize batch in my skillet. I say it was oversize because I lost a bunch of beans when stirring after they expanded. Either my hamhandedness or they just got so light they came out. It really turned out GOOD, though.

I was in Academy yesterday and saw that they have their Char-Broil brand rotisserie setups on clearance for $19 and change, so I threw one in the buggy. It rang up under $15! Going back to get the rest of 'em (there were 3 more on the shelf)

Now to build some sort of steel tube to roast beans in. Got a new old muffler for a tractor that was sold 15 years ago, it's 5" pipe. Gonna try to look in the end of it and see if the holes in it are properly sized to hold coffee beans in; if they are I'll disassemble it and make a roasting basket. I can't remember if it's a real live namebrand muffler, if it is, it's stainless inside. And completely useless to me. Sounds like a fun project....IF it works....

R. Packrat, the air poppers are noisy indeed. If you can get a roaster that is more silent it will help. Monitoring the temps helps too :-)

My ears have had a constant ring from cannon and machine guns so I understand your problem.
