I'm going to try using popcorn salt.  That is about as fine a textured salt as one can find.


I take my salt and place it in my mini processor. I use my Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus Food Processor. A couple of pulses will turn it into a fine powder. On a side note, if you need confectionery sugar, and you have none on hand, it will turn granulated white sugar into confectionery with a few pulses.

I have noticed that the commercial bought smoked almonds have very fine salt on them so I ground table salt in the mortar and pestle until I was happy with the texture.

Applying 220 volts to a 120 volt system would burn out all of the electrical parts, you would be better to replace the hole unit then trying to repair it. This is just my opinion.

General Discussions / Power pack repair
« Last post by JordsFuller on February 22, 2018, 01:11:30 am »
Good morning!

I have a bit of a problem out in Zimbabwe, someone managed to plug my
Bradley model BTDS76P. Serial no 1210011750200160 Into the electricity supply of 220v.
Long story short, I’ve had some damage done to what looks like the power supply?(some sort of pc board) Having a short supply of Bradley agents in the region I removed the board and sent it off to a Samsung for repair. They managed to remove two damaged cells but lost said cells in the process so now it’s making the repair job a little impossible without some expertise. I would like to find out what cells were removed from my generator, if this is not possible how would I go about ordering in a replacement power pack?
Update: I’m failing to insert an image of the pc board so if anyone has an idea what I’m in about you could link a WhatsApp or email add
Many thanks in advance

Has any one ever put a fan in that runs for 1 minute then off for 3 minutes like a timer? just food for thought.

I have both elements running in a 120 VAC Digital model. Works fine.

 My fan is on a separate plug and I run it full bore after preheating the smoker and the meat I am smoking is in it's dry out/warm up stage. During this time I have the vent wide open. Then when I begin the smoke I just close the vent to about 2/3rd's open. After smoking I open the vent fully again.

What's about the mod with the fan? Is it really  useful? It seems to me that not many installed a fan.

The fan I installed came from a convection oven and improves the heat distribution in the cabinet. Before the fan was put in I found the lower racks saw far more heat than the top one and I had to rotate the racks from top to bottom frequently on long cooks to ensure the lower racks did not overcook before the top was done. Now I rotate racks less and when I do it's primarily front to back rather than top to bottom. It also helps dispel the moisture when food is first put in.
Are the fans also working while you are smoking? Does it push out the smoke more quickly?
