Hi from southern Sweden
« on: April 06, 2012, 01:27:33 PM »
I used the large (6 rack) digital Bradley today for the first time.

I had enough cured pork sides to fill all racks but one.

I had the smoke going for 4 ½ hours and the heat one hour longer at 75 degrees celsius. Have not tasted it yet but it all looks and smells fantastic.

Due to the weather conditions her I have placed the smoker on a converted wheel-barrow so that I can easily move it inside the wood-shed if it starts raining.

I have a couple of questions:

1/ How do you best go about cleaning the smoker between sessions? I run all the loose bits in the dish-washer but what do you use on the interior of the smoker? Just hot water and elbow grease or other stuff?

2/ One thing that we will smoke in quantities will be lamb sausage. Right now I have got the "special blend" bisquettes. Will these be good for flavoring sausages?

Cheers!

Ake

Welcome aboard.

DON'T TOUCH THE INSIDE OF THE SMOKER ;D.
Clean the racks, water bowl and V tray.
You want to build up the black goodness in it. Later on if it starts to peel off you can gently brush it off with a wadded up paper or gently blow it off. Also, make sure that the end of the burn plate where the bisquettes are burned, is clean of gunk. A small putty knife or wire brush is what I use.
Use whatever wood you like. Experiment. I like pecan or mesquite mostly. Apple for poultry. I have also used maple. Good luck. :)

welcome aboard,

as for cleaning the inside of the  smoker, you only want to remove the excess flakes and oily build up, leave the rest alone
