Let me rephrase me questions.

If I am using a process of cooking at 225 and the ramping up temps or move to the over to finish at 165 , at what temp should I start ramping up the over temp or moving the bird to the over?

I run a PID. Am I correct in assuming that this would override any stock programing for oven temp?

Thanks for all the help TMB. Have ordered glycerine from amazon & hope to have it here soon.
Will definately post to let all know how this works out.
Right now I'm using some that I toasted and ground to powder on a 5 lb pork loin for a test.
Happy smoking!

Hi Yo!Adrian;

Welcome to the forum.

What vent opening do you have the vent set to. If it is too closed, and too much moisture builds up it will keep your temperatures down. Try setting it to 1/2 to 3/4 opened.

I was gifted a Bradley this Fathers Day by the teeneagers that claim I'm their father (i admit to nothing). Used it 6-7 times and now the box won't get to temp <ugh> I've smoked some wonderful deer burgers (Hickory & Apple) and some bear roasts. I had to finish them all in the house oven to get the meat to 165. This is a pain.

Called Bradley, got replacement control switch and inner heat temp sensor. Installed and still not reaching temp. Tested empty I got 250 on the temp gauge, methinks it should be higher. I expected to see well over 300.
Called Bradley again, they're sending a new heating element. The tech said they'd also send a replacement power cord, just in case. In the meantime I got an element on Amazon and installed it. Same results.
I'm getting 117v at the plug so that's not an issue.
Power connected directly to the box (bypassing the bricket motor thingy) works, I' get a red glow on the element.

There's no way this will get close to temp in the winter :(  It barely works now.

I've been combing the archives looking at the mods to add a 2nd element, it's tempting but I'm trying to get Bradley to fix this issue as i'm still under warranty. Anyone else have this issue with new smokers..?

Meat to cheese ratio of 5 to 1. 10 lbs meat = 2 lbs cheese. Curious if the cheese you bought was pre-cut into cubes? I also put some cubed jalapeƱo peppers in mine for a little heat and nice colour .

Well, after years of searching for high temp cheese where i live (Edmonton ab) i have finally found some.  Now, having never used this before, what is a good amount to put in a 10 lb batch of smoked bratwurst? Im really stoked about trying this cheese but don't know what works so any advice from the veterans would help alot.

Hi all,
I am new to the forum and excited about it.
I have one basic question about smoking fish.  What are your preferences using a rub or a wet brine? Thanks for your input

Thanks again TMB.
Now I just need to figure what to do with it. I'm guessing steeping the seeds in warmed liquid but will be looking it up to make sure.
i used 4oz of glycerin and about a 1/4 cup of seed I did not warm I just let them soak for 7 days then strained the seeds out worked great

If you will search there are recipes for making it, I just did what I thought was right and it wroked well.  Just make sure you cover the seeds all the way and use an air tight jar

Poultry min. temp is an  IT of 165F.  If you haven't bypassed the max. temp. sensor in your Bradley, it'll trip before 300F if I remember correctly.
