A quick note to the New Members and Visitor's
« on: February 22, 2010, 01:31:04 pm »
Welcome to the Bradley Smoker Forum! You have entered what is probably the best thing about a Bradley Smoker, The Forum. Here you will find people who will bend over backwards, and trip over each other trying their best to make your smoking experience the best that it can be. You will find some of the best tried and true recipes for use in your Bradley Smoker and others. If you have questions PLEASE ask them. If you feel stupid about asking the question. Just think how stupid we feel about admitting that "yeah I did that". At one time each and every member on this forum was in your shoes. We were "The newbie". So come on in and read awhile and ask questions, tell us about yourself. We really are a friendly bunch, even though it can be more like a dysfunctional family at times. We do have fun. I leave you with this quote that sums up the mentality of the members of this Forum.

"Since you cannot do good to all, you are to pay special attention to those who, by accidents of time, or place, or circumstance, are brought into closer connection to you"
--Saint Augustine

I am a newbie to the Bradley system i bought a six rack digital smoker I loaded it up with chicken and ribs . tried to follow the directions from the cook book but nothing was done as it should have been. Then i recently put 10 lbs of chicken leg quarters in it for 8 hours with 4 hours of smoke again it was not done. What am i doing wrong even when i do it with the temp on high i get the same results . Somebody must know what i am doing wrong.

Thats a nice welcome Chris, We should add links to the FAQ's and recipe site then make this a sticky.
Hi LQ, hope your doing well.
I think I'm the one who has NOT "done the most idiotic things."  ::) ::)
Everything I do is idiotic.  ;D ;D ;D

Hi my name is James and I am a smoke aholic. I am a newbie and I am very happy to be here.  Of late, I have spent the majority of my free time reading unbelievable smoking forums right here. Nothing like finding the ultimate fix to support an addiction! 

At this time I would like to thank everyone who has contributed to these forums, for if it wasn't for them, I wouldn't be going to bed less stupider tonight.

Keeping it stoked,
JJ

Bought OBS Fri. before Memorial Day and smoked ribs and cornish hens over the weekend. I read up a lot before buying and in this short time I absolutely love this smoker. I think it would make a tennis shoe taste good.

Just got a digital 4 shelf Bradley.  Been looking forward to it for a while.  Have done chicken (wonderful) and brisket (way underdone) thus far.  I am a CPA from East Texas and intend enjoy this new hobby. Cheers

just got my 4 rack digital smoker. Have smoked a lot of food the old way with charcoal and hickory chunks and beer. Have to sit there all day monitoring it. I was usually drunk by time food was done. made some good stuff just want easier and more control so here I am.
If to error is human. Than I'm more human than most.
