I have not built one but here are some thoughts:

I would push the air in instead of pulling it out. I would have the fan push 
cool air over the heating element and into the the roasting chamber. This 
eliminates the need for a high temperature fan (read you could use almost 
anything that blows air)

Subject: [Homeroast] from scratch roaster project

I have a friend who has programming experience that would like to build a 
roaster from scratch.  I have 2 questions for anyone that has built an 
electric roaster from scratch. What could I use for an element? And, what 
could I use for an exhaust fan that would be able to handle the heat of the 
roaster exhaust.

It's been a while since we've had a discussion along these lines, Calling 
all great minds that are still here!
