MiKe is right and I will amend my post by saying that I could never find
that point of dialing down the heat with more than a pound without either
baking or having a runaway. I believe the larger the bean load the harder it
is to roast well in an RK. Remember one is dealing with a BBQ without
assisted convection, eyes on beans, and bean mass temp. Time, smell, cracks
and temp in the BBQ are your only inputs. With enough experience at high
load perhaps it can be done.
My cooling is relatively simple--an 18" sieve placed 36" over a large box
fan--beans cool enough to touch in about 30 seconds
