Precisely this. Lower your flame as you approach first crack. I'm not
sure how pan roasting equates with drum roasting since the pan is open to
the air so the environmental temperature is lower than if it were enclosed,
but generally you should begin reducing heat about midway through the
roast. As you approach first crack your heat is generally quite low. The
cracks should be quite distinct.
