Well, there's always my Hottop pages on my TerryStockdale.com web site.

You can find them via the Coffee page:

I had one of the early Hottop models.  Sold it in about 2005, when I 
won an RK Drum in a Ron Kyle-sponsored Sweet Maria's Tradition.

Those new Hottops look good, though.  I keep thinking about it.  The 
biggest thing would be consistency, as wind and temperature tend to 
affect my gas grill roasting. Of course, voltage affected the Hottop, 
but that's what a variac is for...
