I don't remember if you have a Webber kettle, but it would get to roasting 
temps with a frying pan. Maybe the WSM with the top section removed would 
make it that high; I don't know, you would need to check it out. A Colman 
camp stove would be hot enough. If you can borrow a small generator, you 
could use your regular roaster.

Hello from a seldom-contributor,

I've got a project this summer and wonder if someone in the general southern 
Lake Michigan area might be willing to help. I am planning to go to a 
festival up near Muskegon, MI called Lakes of Fire (www.lakesoffire.org). 
It's one of those Burning Man festivals that happen every year. This'll be 
my first. It's a 3-day thing, and it's pretty much a hippie thing where the 
general thing to do is give gifts of some kind or another. Anything from art 
to performance to food. I'd like to set up my camp as a coffee roasting 
theme site. I've heard that morning coffee is hard to come by at these 
things, and I'd like to be the camp where everyone can come for a cup of 

The thing there is, I need a charcoal-and-drum setup for this site and 
project. It's beyond my finances right now to buy one, so I'm hoping there 
might be someone in the general area I can borrow a set-up like this from 
for the weekend. It's not until late June. I live in northcentral Indiana 
and would be willing to travel a fair distance to borrow one, if one exists 
nearby. I'll leave you something as collateral. :)

Would anyone be able and willing to help?
