[Homeroast] Behmor questions

I personally have never experienced the issues other listers mention
regarding roast time ending too soon. People have suggested roasting under
1lb at 1lb setting, roasting under a 1/2 lb at 1/2 lb setting. Personally I
roast exactly 1lb at 1lb setting and can get the roast to go to French
without an issue. I usually end my roasts 2 min before max time to finish
with FC to FC+.

Subject: [Homeroast] Behmor questions

I've been thinking of getting the Behmor to replace my dead Poppery (6
years!). Yhe only thing that is holding me back is that I have read that it
doesn't really do dark roasts. I prefer darker roasts, being a west coast
kinda guy. I'm not a fan of Charbucks, I dont need it to be burnt, but I'm
worried that I wont be able to get a French roast out of the thing, and be
stuck at lighter roasts.

I've seen a few posts about a slow roast fix that is available from the
Behmor folks, and some people recommending a pre-heat... but what I'm
looking for is people's actual experiences. Can you get a decent dark roast
out of the Behmor? Should I be looking at a different roaster altogether to
achieve what I want?
