It rolls right out of first crack straight into second crack, no matter what bean I am roasting.

I've been using my Behmor all summer.
I have used the OP for about 6 years. In the summer I cut down on the amount of beans. Weigh them before you start to get a guidline and then adjust according to ambient temps. Too many beans and that sucker will heat up fast!
I cut of the heat for about 10 seconds right after 1st crack, too.
