A long time ago, some home roasters got together near here to do some backyard roasting. #fbf

I saw a real need for being able to accurately control a complex roasting profile and also be able to achieve identical results with multiple roasts. I know that some of you prefer zen roasting and /or dog bowls. That is fine and I respect that we all have different tastes, preferences, and styles. I have both a Hearthware Precision and also a HotTop. I have done perhaps 600 roasts so far and I have temperature logged some and taken notes on others. I have determined the best roasting for my particular taste and it requires complex profiles and good accurate control. The prototype computer controlled roaster (CCR) is based on a modified HotTop as Tom and others have written today.
