[Homeroast] Behmor in Garage

I have a Gene Café (not a Behmor), and I roast outside with ambient air
temps in the teens & 20s during the winter -- well below freezing (Park
City, UT -- elevation ~ 6800 ft).  It works fine.

I do leave the chaff collector off which I suppose reduces backpressure a
bit.  I leave the collector off primarily so I can hear 1st crack & 2nd
crack, as I am hard of hearing.

I have used my behmor in 50 degrees and colder but keep the beans at room
temp preheat 115 seconds and also use 12 to 13 oz of beans to roast instead
of a pound.
