I'm about to buy a smoker mostly for personal use but also to do trial runs of smoked salmon for a new small business I'm considering selling smoked salmon. Trying to keep costs and time to a minimum.
The Bradley initially caught my eye because of the wood briquette loader but then I see the MES is very highly rated and recommended. If you were going to be doing A LOT of smoking, (like 5 days a week), do you think you would be better off with the MES with AMAZEN or the Bradley in the long-run?
The main thing that concerns me about the Bradley is that you are tied to those briquettes and they are not cheap, but I'm not sure how the cost comparison would stack up compared to chips or pellets? In need a set-it and forget-it type setup as I've got other stuff I need to be doing than tending to the smoker all day.
