Many thanks to Allon, Lynne, Silas, Brian, and Tom, for your suggestions.
I sloooooowed the roast times down and it is working much better. I had the SR300 with no temp control or fan speed. The SR500 has both fan and heat settings. I went to MED heat and mid-point fan speed. Working much better. I take it that oily beans mean 'over-raosted'??? The green bean supplier where I purchase my beans and this roaster stressed the need to take the roast into 2nd crack and get a sheen (oily coating) to the beans - no rest time - just cool for a few minutes , grind, and enjoy. They do not have a very good opinion of the Behmor either.
Thanks again to all... a fun journey, isn't it!! ;)
