After about a month of a bit of trial and error (not too much error as my first biscuits were smoke-able and smoked some awesome cheese), I have successfully figured out how to replicate a Bradley biscuit about as close as you can get. They fit the smoker well, can drop on the floor without breaking and no one that knows my smoker would guess that I made these myself, as they're very uniform. Costs are negligible, and you will more than likely have some of the materials already. You don't have to get all fancy here, promise. I have calculated that my first shipment of hickory sawdust will yield about 170 biscuits for about 6 cents a piece. The 5 lb bag of sawdust cost me $11 (shipping included in price). Average price of a 48 pack of Bradley biscuits is about 20 to 25 dollars and weights 1.6 lbs. Do the math. Most of the hard woods are about this price, and some are a little more, but it's very negligible. Because of my success, I now have 20 lbs of sawdust ranging from Cherry, Hickory, Mesquite and Apple woods.
I will post a step by step on the materials, where I got them, the companies I bought from and all of my ratios regarding mixing the biscuits before you press them. I'll do this as soon as I can, but am going to make more so I can have pics and such ready. Just wanted to let you all know that if you're willing to put in a small amount of work, you can do something for yourself and save a very significant amount of money (Hey, 10- 12 times more expensive on anything adds up real quick, especially when you're smoking as much as I do). Until then, happy smoking!
