    Exclamation BBQ Roasters x 2 with RK Drums For Sale - Parramatta Area

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi all,

    I’ve 2 BBQ Roasters set up on hooded 3 burner BBQs using RK Drums from the States. One has a load weight of 1.2kg green (1kg roasted output) and the other a load weight of 1.5kg (1.2kg roasted output). Both have an electric motor that runs off 10amp power. BBQs are LPG, gas bottles not included. Selling as I’ve upgraded to a 5kg commercial. Would suit someone looking to increase capacity over a popper / bread maker. We made a small hobby business out of them. . Happy for you to come and check them out. Can sell separately or together. I only have one cooling fan though. The milk crate & wood construction is to hold the drum whilst you’re loading.

    Asking $350 each or $600 for both. Reasonable offers considered.

    Cheers,

    Matt

    Hi,
    I'm pretty sure you'll need to put an asking price as per the rules.

    Matt,

    Could you advise the actual dimensions of the drums?
    The reason I ask is that I have the 4lb RK drum and the 2 in the pics look like a 4lb (8" x 12") and a 6lb (8" x 18") to me.
    If they are, then the capacity is probably a bit higher than you have stated. My standard load in the 4lb drum is 1875 green to yield 1.5kg roasted, but it can actually handle more.

    Brett.

    Hi Brett,

    The smaller drum (Iím pretty sure) is a 4lb drum. Itís 310mm long and 200mm diameter. The larger drum, which I thought was the 8lb, is 460mm long and 200mm diameter. We played around with weights in the early stages and kind of settled on those weight as coming out pretty evenly. I guess we kind of though if it anít broke...

    It could also be related to the fact they these are 3 burner BBQs, although they do get plenty hot enough.

    Are you interested in expanding your operation? ;-)

    Cheers,

    Matt
