I have been smoking for about 1 1/2 years (newbie). I bought a used Bradley Smoker off of Craigslist and got my use out of it. I recently built a bigger all wood smoker w/ rough cut pine and cabinet grade plywood and screws. I would like to use the heating element and smoke tower from the Bradley, but they are in rough shape...Youtube videos of other builds , I have observed that the use of hotplates and frying pans and commonly used. Which leads me to my question, leaving wood chips to smoke and smolder, turning to ash, does that not leave a burnt taste in the food being smoked? as the Bradley smoke tower changes wood biscuits every twenty minutes...my Bradley is the six tray...my new build is on wheels and is over six and a half feet tall...still wondering if one element will heat the space...the build is finished...the heating and smoking options are not, I am open to any and all suggestions, thanks !!! Will try to get picture as soon as I figure out how to....
