Title: Smoker temperature
Post by: Drahth56 on October 21, 2017, 01:48:54 pm
Hi. I have a original Bradley. Second time using and I have a question. I’m doing wings, they say to get smoker to 275°. I did that but when I put racks of wings in temp dropped to 150°. It’s been a hour and still not up to 275°. Is this normal? I have it on HIGH. THANKS

do you have the vent open? A closed vent will keep moisture in and hinder the temp rising.

Remember if the wings are cold that will also effect temp. amount of wings also.

Lots of similar complaints here. The 500W element is simply not enough. I have just did the 900W mod that others have done and I now have what I think is the perfect home smoker.
As oldsmoker said, bring the wings to near room temperature before placing in the smoker.

Anyone did the 900watt mod to the smart smoker?
I just tried my first smoke in it,  temp is way off and won’t even get up to temp with a 12lb brisket had to finish it in kitchen oven
