I believe I understand what you want to do. You want to put the wings in at the beginning while you are applying smoke to the ribs. Then pull them out and hold them until the ribs are ready to serve. If so you are looking at a minimum of three hours for holding the wings. The precaution you will have to take is to make sure the wings stay 140°F, or above. I'm not sure if FTC will keep them that hot for that long. You can give it a try, but monitor the temperature in the cooler.

One trick I've learned which is similar to FTC, is to use the kitchen oven as a food warmer. Preheat the kitchen oven to 250°F, put your wings in a pan and tightly foil, put them in the oven then turn it off, and keep the door closed until you want to grill the wings. That should keep the wings at a safe temperature for those three hours.

Yeah, that was my question.  Thanks for the tip.  I'll do it that way.

From the information you are giving on the temperature, it seems that your Bradley is performing normally. It is like most kitchen oven thermostats. It will overshoot 10 degrees or more before shutting off, then drop 10 degrees or more before coming back on. The only way to resolve that is to get a temperature controller. The Auber PID is a favorite among members, but a lot of controllers that are less accurate have come on the market. They also have a lower temperature range, with 250°F being the maximum; but that would be sufficient for use in the Bradley. It should bring your Bradley to within +/-5°F.

There are more than a few using:  Inkbirds

put the wings below the ribs

Are you suggesting keeping them in the smoker for the complete 5 hours?

Yeah I have worked with that issue but, the failure to reach temp is more frustrating.  Hard to plan a meal I guess.  I'm sure I'll get it figured out.  Thanks for all the info though.  I really appreciate it.

Poultry / Quick question, smoked wings
« Last post by DasBoot on July 28, 2018, 02:22:39 pm »
I'm having guests over tomorrow and would like to do smoked wings, as well as ribs.  Do you guys think it would be ok to smoke the wings when I smoke the ribs, then just hold them FTC until just before time to eat, then throw them on the grill and then sauce them?  I'm doing baby back, so, 2-2-1 on  time.

If it is just an "E" code and not an "E1" code the below information may be helpful.

A. An “E” message is letting you know that there is something wrong with the advance system. It’s the connection between the motor arm and the micro switch. Please open the generator, and take a look at that switch which is going to be a gray rectangle shaped switch; first make sure that it is connected, secondly makes sure nothing is blocking that switch and the arm. If the wires appear to be plugged in, disconnect and reconnect the connections to make sure they are secure.

If the above does not work, check the drive guide for any obstructions; such as a build up of debris in the tracks that will interfere with the movement of the system. Also check the drive guide for any wear and tear. That is an indication the guide track is out of alignment and need to be adjusted.

Another thing that may cause the error, it the micro switch. With your generator plugged in (only do this if you feel comfortable with working with electrical appliances); depress the micro switch. This is to test to see if the micro switch does work. The motor should engage and the motor arm should come around and depress the switch; you should hear a definite click.

If this does not work contact Bradley Technical Support.

I have used a charcoal smoker for years.  It was time to replace it so I went electric and got a Bradley digital.  This is my forth time using it and the second time I am getting the "E" code.  Besides that, the temp on this unit has yet to hit 240 consistently.  Maybe it just takes time getting use to it but, as of now, I feel like a fool having paid so much money for these types of results.

I don't have the BS611, but from what I recall you only need to remove the side panel of the generator (the side that has the vents). Look underneath the generator and remove the screw that is holding that panel in place. Once the screw is removed the side panel should slide up and off.
