Try 1/2 Lb. with the Behmor set to 1 full Lb. P3 C pay close attention when
you get to the 8 or less minutes left let it roll through 1st and either hit
cool when you hear first snaps of 2nd or actually time 10 seconds into 2nd
crack and then hit cool but the heat will have some inertia so they will
probably continue on further into 2nd even after you hit cool. I believe Joe
says for about anothe 10-15 seconds......see if that doesn't get ya where
you wanna be.....
