The heat gun blows the chaff between the wall of the bread machine and the pan, with a little escaping out the top. I have seen people craft aluminum foil gaskets to prevent "chaff fountains", but I don't see the need in my set-up.

My preferred beans are either decaf or Asian, which dont have as much chaff as Mexican/South American beans

And, yes, that is my screened-in porch. I would NEVER recommend roasting inside. The smell would linger for a very long time, and the billows of smoke would set off just about any smoke alarm.

Everyday I'm shufflin...
