No offense taken, miKe. I'm afraid you'd break down entirely if you saw my
set up and approach... I've had the start of 1st lined up with yours, with
at least 3 mins before I hit 2nd, but I lack the confidence in my set up
and my skills to shoot for anything where I don't at least touch 2nd.
Otherwise I just don't know where I am. No doubt I'd love your Gera Jimma
at city/city+ much better than anything I can pull off with it!

At this point I'm limited to a Whirley Pop with a thermometer (more for
comparison between roasts than accuracy) while using the side burner of my
outside grill. Had to replace the grill a couple of months ago, and have
not been happy with a roast since. Still re-calibrating to the new one.
I've been using this basic set up since I started roasting about a year
ago. I like roasting larger batches, or I'd be real tempted to get a Quest.
I'd really love to find or make something on that level that could roast
between 1 or 2 lb batches.

Very Thankful to have gotten into roasting, and to have all the excellent
options from SM and the expertise you all are so happy to share!
