I am officially a Bradley Smoker owner as a few hours ago. I'm about as excited as when I purchased my 1st boat. I've been doing my research and came to the conclusion that Bradley electric was the way to go. My buddy has a 6 rack digital Bradley that I have been jealous of since he got a few months ago. I decided to save some money and do some mods myself. As I type this, the Bradley is on the picnic table seasoning before I do some meat tonight. Oh, I purchased my 4 rack black at Gander Mountain in Eden Prairie, MN for $350. Cabelas has them priced online regular price $300. I showed Gander the Cabelas website on my "smart phone" and they honored the Cabelas price. Very good deal! Stopped at the grocery store on my way home and picked up some roasts for jerky, a ham, chorizo sausage, a beef brisket, 2 cornish game hens, and some cheeses. I may thaw out some salmon and trout I have in the deep freeze. Anyway, I look forward to contributing on this forum and learning some tips and tricks. Thanks!
