Was trying to smoke some ribs sunday and my bradley wouldnt get over 210 for like 2hrs then it shot up to 250 then back down to 200 ended up having to finish off in the oven anybody ever see this maybe I need a new element?
Thanks for the reply I called customer support and they said to take a wire brush and clean the thermostat seems to have worked so far thanks again
If you get on the Bradley forum there are plenty of threads as to how to improve these smokers.
The brackets that hold the elements have enough room to add a 2nd unit. If you have a bit of electrical knowledge, hooking it up is simple.
I have since moved up to a Traeger as I found the Bradley electronics very finicky for Ontario weather.

Good luck.
