BuzzKill !!
« on: July 01, 2004, 02:31:33 AM »
Hello everyone,
  I have watched this forum for awhile now and being a huge fan of the BBQ i decided I had to have a Bradley Smoker because everyone here says its so great.  So I ordered it on June 18th and ran home from work every day to check to see if my new toy had arrived.  Well it showed up on the 30th just in time for my favorite and most beloved holiday July 4th.  So like a kid on Xmas day I opened up the smoker box and carefully removed everything deciding that tonight was going to be the night to put it together and cure the pit.  I found the instructions and with a huge smile on my face opened them up to read all the great BBQ knowledge Bradley Smoker could bestow on me and IT WAS ALL IN FRENCH!!!!!  AHHHHHHH
  So does anyone have any directions in English?  You would make this non French or Spanish speaking American a very happy guy.
     Thanks much

scooter,
I live in GA. and have no idea what time it is in your part of the world but you obv. live in the USA.  I think I have instructions.  I'll give it 10 min and wait to hear from you.
P.S.  You can also download the manual in english from home page.  Look for downloads in menu bar.  Just tried it works great. Will hang around for a little bit just in case.

banzai,

Most of the bradley woods you buy will come with recipe cards in each pack.  Also I'm sure your going to find that most of the folks here will tell you that what wood you use is a personal preference.  I find that hickory is pretty good on beef but to harsh for pork.  I mostly use maple and apple and alder they are a sweeter wood.  But now that your bradley has arrived you should stock up your library.  "Smoke & Spice" is a must have....I also have "Paul Kirk's Championship BBQ" and "Where Theres Smoke Theres Flavor"  bought them all on Amazon for under $30 (used).  Some guys alternate between woods during the smoke process.  

Have a GREAT weekend![8D]

Looks like we have a new batch of green horns. COOL!  Welcome everyone to the forum.  Hay, you got it right on the small booklet, it really doesn't have much.  You nice folks will find out that the forum will probably be your best place for information.  I know the threads get a bit fragmented sometimes and it may be hard to find the info you need but just ask the question.  Alot of us don't mind putting our two cents worth - as you will soon find out.  

Oh' ya, my favorite recipe that comes with the wood pucks is: "Smoked Moose Heart".  Being from Arkansas this really makes my heart sing with glee.  I can't make my mind up for the fourth, Moose Heart or Road Kill Racoon?

Jeff is correct, get yourself a remote thermometer.

Everyone have a great Holiday and good luck with your new smokers...

Thanks For the info guys.  Sorry I did not catch you last night I made the post then went to go play with the smoker.  Going to season it later.  Im downloading the English instructions now.  I've got to say this is a really great place for BBQ info and the people seem to be really nice.  
  Thanks again
