        ~~~You're certainly welcome in my home anytime Tex, with or w/o Biscotti=:-)


        BTW, I know that you are a bit of a pastry chef Tex, what do you think of Randy Glass's Biscotti recipe, looking over the ingredients and preparation?


        http://tinyurl.com/yhy5m2s


        I've never tried to make a Biscotti and have been thinking about trying his. As you may know, Randy wrote the current user manual for Hot Top USA. I've been hanging out on his site perusing his instructions for fastening a TC probe to the bean chute cover (on my Hot Top B model) in order to have a bean mass temp read out


        While I have your ear on this subject (bean mass temp probe)...I wanted your opinion on the suitability of using RTV silicone to secure the TC probe from sliding down into the rotating drum. The link below takes you to Randy's bean chute temp probe mod


        http://tinyurl.com/yh6glfx


        i was doing some off list with Randy and he cautioned me about the possibility of the probe sliding down the cover into the turning drum. Obviously not a situation you want to have...which would muck up the probe at the very least if not the drum or motor drive


        You have more experience than I when it comes to using copper based RTV silicone, think it would be up to the task?...to secure the probe to the cover

Ran the heat element at 100% till first crack, slowed it down to 70% for maybe 30 seconds then dropped the heat again so the heater was only putting out 30%, letting exothermic run the roast

Fan ran at 25% throughout the roast once it hit 325 degrees f on the oem et temp display
