Hello all I have a trager bbq smoker and i am finding that when i need to cook at 160 for an hour and then adjust it up to 180 to cook the final stages of my summer sausage. I cant control my temp. I go from smoke to 225. Dose the bradley have better temp control.

I have both, and yes - you'll get better temp control with a Bradley.   A lot of the guys here use Auber PIDs to fine tune the temperature control, ramp temps, etc.

Do you have a digital controller on your Traeger?

You can adjust the P settings to get tighter control on your temp.
