Bradley smoke generator with UDS (Drum Smoker)
« on: November 16, 2017, 08:29:28 am »
Hi, i'm wanting to smoke sausages / snack sticks mainly, is it possible to use the Bradley smoke generator attached to a UDS to achieve a cold smoke (without buying the cold smoke adaptor). ie there will be no other elements or heat source in the drum only the Bradley smoke generator. how much heat does the Bradley smoke generator give off? PS I will be using Prague powder to cure the sausages for those that will warn me about Botulism and the dangers of cold smoking meat etc.

It's hard to tell what temperature the generator will bring you UDS up to. In a small cabinet like the Bradley, I have hit around 120°F, sometimes 140°F on a hot sunny day.

I have measured the temperature generated at the heating pad with an infrared thermometer, and at the surface the pad get up to 525°F - 555°F. You may need to make some sort of hood to prevent drippings from falling onto the heating pad and rail guide.

                   inhale.
