post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Doing a 5 lb batch of kielbasa this morning. Used my bucket mixer but no pics of that (to hard to take pics and mix)

Have the controller set to smoke setting 180. The IT of the Bradley box is 100 with pecan smoke rolling. I will bump the controller to 225 to raise the IT later.

How long do you dry it before smoking?  my last ones turned out steamed looking (too moist).

looks good, Nepas!

 

About how long did you mix the meat to get the consistency?

 

My last batch is kielbasa is all gone so you've inspired me to crank out another batch in the near future!

Mixed for 4 mins. Any longer would render the fat to the mixer and blade.

As with everything there are Pro's & Con's

 

Here are mine.

 

Pro's

Gives real smokehouse style results
Was fun to build.
Makes a great cold smoker for cooler outside temps.
Heavy smoke.
Can use smoke stix (sausage rods) and racks at the same time.
If you have a larger item to take just smoke you can put inside the main area (just smoke) while using the side smoke box.
I can still use my 4 rack with the Bradley cold smoker if needed.

 


Con's

Takes longer to smoke due to indirect heat.
Pellet consumption was almost 8 1/4 lbs.
Vents on the MAK need to be covered. Right side top and one of the vents on the bottom smoke box.
Had to remote the MAK temp to 325* to get a Bradley IT of 168* Maybe next time use my top draw fan.

 

Anyways i'm happy with it.  ;D
