Saltwater and Electric Smokers

Discussion in 'Electric Smokers' started by alligatorob, Jan 26, 2008.

  1. I am looking for an electric smoker that will hold up at a beach house. I tried a Bradley a couple of years ago and really liked the way it smoked things, but the electrical only lasted 6 months before giving out. I assume due to the salt spray. We are used to things rusting faster here, but most stuff lasts several years, not just a few months. I know Bradley makes a stainless steel smoker, but that is just the shell, the electrical is the same as in their regular smoker. I guess that way you will have a really nice clean smoke that doesn’t work instead of an ugly rusty one that doesn’t work.

    Anyone with experience in a highly corrosive environment with advice?

    Any way of storing it inside out of the elements. I store mine in the garage when not using it. And like bubba said using a cover would help alot. With electrical you have to be concerned with the wiring and controls. Even if you made a small box to keep it in, like those deck storage lockers that I think rubbermaid makes. Hope these ideas halp you out.
