Can someone help me for using forced propane burner as my heating element. I rather want to use lpg than electric. Do you think it would work

Reverse Air Flow (RAF) mod problems
Joyride
Hey folks. I'm hoping to get some help on the RAF-1 Extreme mod that ceil-007 described in this thread
https://forum.homeroasters.org/forum/viewthread.php?thread_id=3236&rowstart=40

I got everything working last night, and started doing roasts today. The thing that I'm finding is that turning on my fan to level 1 of 10 causes the ET probe to immediately start dropping. In order to not kill a roast, I have to turn the fan on and off every 15-30 seconds in order to keep the ET up once I've gone past FC.

Is this typical for other folks using this mod?

Thanks!

Hi: I am the current owner of Fern's RAF-1 Extreme. One thing to keep in mind is that Fern tested a lot of tubing sizes/locations/angles before he settled on his choices. Be sure to read that thread further to see how the RAF-1 changes fan inputs (No fan at all until just before first crack), and how venting the plenum box is used instead of the fan to move air through the roaster: https://forum.hom...post_50706
Good luck!
