The approach to automating a BC roaster should effectively be the same as I covered in automation post for the North Roaster. In fact, this approach can be used for really any drum roaster running on gas, and the approach really doesn't get in the way of onboard PID roasters such as with the BC, Bella TW (e.g. Mini 500) and would certainly work with "maker-style" roasters such as the Huky, Kaldi, et. al.
While I have not seen the BC, I gather that its plumbing is inboard, so you would likely have less room for valve plumbing, and I can think of a few ways to simply my original post on this, which I'll update on the North automation thread in a bit.
