SNT, Ya just can't waste those racks. Good for a crowd, throw a couple of racks of wings in. They will not need as much as the bird. When the fryer is hot, Toss and sauce!! You will still have enough room for a couple of fattys too. Easy to make. [And have lots of beer!]

Well its here, i'm home, and the seasoning process has begun. Time to start adding all that flavor that i see lining the walls of your smokers in all the pics.  Mine looks so nice and clean...



Its Alive!! Seasoning process under way.

Don't worry about that nice and shiny, after each smoke the seasoning just keeps getting better!  And I agree one heck'uva deal...Bet your ready to smoke something now!  I remember as soon as mine was delivered and seasoned that same night I was a digging through the fridge for anything to smoke!  Congrats!

Wifey once threatened my DBS with oven cleaner. Stopped it real quick by telling her I would take it to the dump if she did. Harsh but effective

Wouldn't that be the ultimate cutting off your nose to spite your face?  If my wife threatened my smoker, I might threaten to take her to the dump..... ;) ;D ;D

Tomorrow will be the day. I picked up a rack of ribs, a whole chicken, boneless skinless chicken & some bacon, and a pork tenderloin. Not sure if i'll do the tenderloin tomorrow, but the rest of it is going in.

Since i plan on doing the Smoked then Fried turkey on Sunday for lunch with friends over, i wanted to try out the method on a whole chicken. Any reason why that won't turn out with the same results as a test run?  I plan on cold smoking for several hours, then dropping it in the turkey fryer for a short bit (smaller bird, not much cooking time).

I'll be scouring the forums for the best rib recepies, and i was thinking i'd wrap the boneless chicken breasts in bacon and smoke those for dinner tomorrow evening. This is all to get the feel of the unit, then i plan on making smoking a weekly habit.

I almost picked up some almonds and some cheesecloth at the store tonight to give that a run, but held off until i make a Sam's run to pick up the big container of almonds at a better price.

On a really cool note, i went by Academy sports tonight on the way home, i wanted to pick up a Wireless Thermometer so i can monitor the IT from inside the house, and when i went back to the endcap where they had the Bradley stuff a week ago, it had all gotten moved to the side of the endcap, but they had a handful of the 4 rack smoker covers on a peg labeled $9.99. I pounced on that and when i got to the register they rang it up for $29.99 so i had them check the endcap. They pulled the peg but gave me mine for that price. I also picked up the thermometer, not the Maverick T73, but close enough for now. I also picked up a box of the Apple bisquits, so i have Mesquite and Apple now to choose from.

Anyway, getting really excited about the first run tomorrow.  ;D ;D ;D

Welcome here STM and Coolbreeze, that is a 5exy looking Bradley, but it's far too shiny!
Best get smoking and get it all blacked up!

Be patient with the ribs, they take a lot of experimenting, but once you get them right you'll realise it was worth the effort  ;)

SNT Welcome I feel that I must warn you.  You said "i plan on making smoking a weekly habit." This statement is SOOOOOOO far from the truth. You will be trying to invent and find ways to smoke every day, or at least working on something to be smoked. IE: curing, brining, or resting in a rub. Like everyone has told you there is a lot of knowledge here all you have to do is ask.
