I'm not sure where you got the idea there are "lots of options for low-end
in the 1lb-1.5kg range". Do it (build it) yourself maybe, ready built off
the shelf targeting home roasters exactly zero that I know of.

As Andy mentioned there is the RKDrum (and some copycats) made to use with a
gas grill, not much else if anything. But really what you're looking for AND
the activities of roasting up to 3.3lb batches for more than yourself and
immediate family IS entering the realm of commercial roasting and as such
you'll need to look at real commercial roasters if you're serious about
moving forward. Then yes there are options, but not low-end or low cost.

Ultimately the quest for Koffee Nirvana is a solitary path. To know I must
first not know. And in knowing know I know not. Each Personal enlightenment
found exploring the many divergent foot steps of Those who have gone before.
