Bradley Smokers

Has anyone used a Bradley Smoker with their Bisquettes used for the smoke?

  1. I bought one a couple of months age along with a 40" Masterbuilt smoker.
    I like the Masterbuilt so much about the only thing I've done with the digital Bradley is season it!
    I also have a big ceramic cooker that I use. That burns lump or wood and the other 2 are both electric.
    Do yourself a favor and look at Sam's Club in Plymouth, Ma at the Masterbuilt 40" digital model. It's on sale for $240, Bass Pro Shops sells it for $399.
    My Bradley will along with about 500 various bisquettes will be on the local craigslist shortly.

      Are you referring to the electric Masterbuilt smoker? How long have you had it and tell us more about your experience with it. Thanks.

    2. I've had a Bradley digital for over a year and love it. I've used it for salmon, brisket, ribs, turkey legs and chicken. Have had excellent results with all. I like the "lazy-Q" aspect of the Bradley in that I can have it smoke a brisket overnight with no monitoring. I do about an hour per pound in the smoker, then seal it tight and finish it in the oven. It comes out perfect.

      1. A couple more things about the Bradley: the drip pan, water pan and racks clean beautifully in the dishwasher. Also, I use the smoker year-round, even in the cold of winter and on rainy days. I keep a large ziploc bac inverted on the puck feeder to keep the rain/snow from swelling the bisquettes (I buy them from Amazon, generally on the buy 4, pay for 3 deal).

          Check out for really great prices on the bisquette.
          I pay $39 for a 120 pack.
          Do you use a metal puck so pucks feed correctly and you get no waste?

            Amazon's 4-for-3 gets me 192 pucks for $46 or so.
