I know there is a post going on the Master vs Bradley but it didn't answer my questions and I didn't want to high jack the post
I am new at this and need some help with the final decsion. My decision has come down to Master Built digital Elec 4 rack with the water pan and window or Bradley Stainless 4 rack digital 500 watt. These two only because our selection here is very limited.
Master built is $349 and Bradley on sale was $429 now $299.
The cost of the Bradley wood pucks is not a factor and the 20 min clean burn of the pucks I like.( I think)
The master Built has the water pan which I think is a nice add on to keep your meat moist and add extra flavour ( I think)
is a water pan really that great??? ( I think so)
The Bradley is 500 watt and I can't find the wattage for the Master built (dedicated outlet for smoker not an issue)
I like the digital controlls on both smokers and that's what I want.
they say the Bradley is scared of the rain and can't get wet????? and the pucks can jam????
The master built looks a little simpler in operation as far as smoke goes and uses any wood chips, I like the way they are reloaded in to the smoker
Does the water pan get hot enough to evaporate the liquid efficientley
Any answers on venting problems
will they stay hot enough once set at 230f if it is little windy ( not heavy wind)
Can they be run efficientley on cool days???
Any help with problems, service or ease of operation would be appreciated
I don't know how long the Bradley will be on sale
Thanks in advance
