The Original - Original Vintage Bradley Smoker
« on: April 01, 2009, 11:20:05 PM »
Does anyone have the original - original Bradley Smoker ......... besides Wade?  I bought my first Bradley smoker almost 12 years ago. I have been in the Butcher / Restaurant business for 20 years in Vancouver, near where the whole Bradley boys got started and is headquartered today. I first saw the Bradley original Smoker in a restaurant kitchen. It looked like it weighed a couple hundred pounds and was the size of a dishwasher, made in Canada out of heavy duty stainless steel. This particular restaurant still uses it today!


After I saw this commercial unit in operation I quickly bought the consumer edition. It was made out of what looked like a Danby Bar Fridge. It came with wooden dowels to hang sausages and was over 50 lbs.

I was wondering if anyone still had one in use and would like to share pics and stories of there vintage smoker.

I'll be watching this thread with great interest.
