Oops! I'm sorry. Try googling 'Chile Roasters'. Most of the ones I've seen used in markets are large stainless steel drums with propane burners. All of them are very expensive (to me) so at home I just use the backyard grill. Mine don't come out as perfect as the tumbling roasters do but taste just as good. My friends have the smallest one offered. Keep in mind that these grills cook a lot of peppers at one time and you want to keep them operating as long as there is a crowd at your market, so think small and grow a lot of peppers.
