I whole heartily agree! I bought a motor off of Ron and what a difference it makes. the shipping was super fast and all questions were answered promptly. I am really enjoying BBQ roasting!
Nice unit. This is built sturdy and should last forever. Unfortunately I dropped motor unit while installing and crushed the plastic fan. I will epoxy it together and see if it runs without shaking. You did a wonderful job on the parts no sharp edges and even the drilled holes have no burs. You must have been a machinist or an engineer or just one talented guy. I am not used to seeing quality with everything made in china now a days.
I received the Drum and Motor setup on Thursday, I had
to make a few adjustments to get it level and in line
on my Weber grill, took about 10 minutes and then let
the drum burn in for about 15 minutes.
Today (Saturday) I did two roasts, the first roast was
a little over done but the second roast came out very
nice. Each roast was 1 pound. It is going to take
some practice with roast times and getting the drum
into the grill without losing too much heat and
getting the beans into the cooling tray but I think
after 3 or 4 roasts I should have it down.
The motor is very quiet and I have no problem hearing
the first crack.
I am pleased with the drum and motor and look forward
to many roasts, you have a great product.
Yay! The roaster is HEAVY DUTY! Nice! Just got my grill and motor, I should be able to roast this weekend! I'll let you know how it goes :) Dan Hankle Fernwood Finca LLC
