I just roasted 500g of Mocha Mattari -- it's on it's third day of rest. Should be cracking into it tomorrow AM and I can't wait!

copper sheet to use?
dukeja
I did a copper wrapper on my stainless steel drum to spread the heat from gas grill. I got the 110 copper from Amazon to make the wrapper. The copper sheet is outside of the stainless steel mesh so the bean is not touching the copper directly. After the 1st roast, I noticed that the outer layer (under flame) has changed color and texture. I am concerned about 1) Is it a wrong copper to use? 2) If it is good, how can I maintain it after use? I would appreciate if you can point me to the right direction. Thank you so much!!

Looks like copper tubing color change when sweating/soldering plumbing connections (i.e. applying direct heat/flame). I don't know how long copper would hold up in a roasting application. Sweating a pipe takes a few minutes vs. ongoing roasting @ longer temps???
