    I purchased a oven-cooker from a restaurant equipment auction.The oven-cooker is about 3 foot x 3 foot x 7 feet tall. It has electric heating elememts. I will use it as a smoker hams, bacon, sausage, ect. I need to decide should I buy a Bradley Smoke Generator or A-Maze-N-Smoker tray. The Bradley biscuits look expensive any sugestions?

    Get with Todd about a pellet smoker I think a tray would work but he may say go with a tub smoker. Both are great. He will work with you and stir you the right way to go

    For longer time cold smoking I find the pellet smoker (AMNPS) more effective than the tube smoker as I can get a good 12+ hours out of it which means it only has to be tended twice a day. It is substantially less expensive to run than the Bradley. The operating costs of the Bradley is in the region of $1.75 per hour whereas the AMNPS is $0.17 per hour.
