Hello all. I just got my Bradley 4-rack electric smoker and cover, but haven't fired it up yet. Still have to buy or build something to support it at a comfortable height on the back deck. Any ideas?
I confess to throwing a handful of hickory chips on to the infra red reflector in the gas grill under some pork butt chunks now and then. It works sometimes, sometimes not. I think the control with the Bradley will let me get better and reproducible results. I have ordered The Book, downloaded the rub and sauce recipes, and have the Maverick dual probe thermometer.
My main reason for getting a real smoker is to make smoked kielbasa. I make a serious fresh version, and want to put together some real smoked, natural casing rings. Most of the store-bought stuff is awful. Of course, ribs and brisket are also on the list, and maybe some fish.
I live in Clifton Park, NY, long retired, widowed, and live alone. I do all my own cooking, have no more pets, and do some serious woodworking, mostly Adirondack guide boats. Recently was detoured to building banjoes. Finishing up my third, and last, so I can get back to boat building. I can't play banjo, but am learning. I much prefer my fiddle.
Enough about me. I will be sure to lurk, and post with questions.
