<br />My brother-in-law has attempted the process & met with mixed results. He used Knox gelatin as the binder, the bisquettes burned so-so, but the labor involved turned him off.
At 35-40 cents per bisquette, that's a buck an hour to smoke. How much is your time worth? Personally, I'd prefer to spend it smokin' more food & relaxing than making bisquettes. JMHO.
I don't know how Bradley makes the things, they won't even tell us dealers. But I can't imagine they use suet. All that grease & fat in suet would either ignite or cause a gooey mess.http://www.chezbubba.com

You missed the point! Making my own bisquettes is not about time and money, its about smoking with other woods that I have used and like, such as; Grape wood, French Oak, Persimon wood, etc.
If smoking meat was about time and money, I would have not wasted my time or money on a Bradley Smoker, but rather go out to a BBQ place & eat.
Any other Idias on a "binder"[?]
