Hot Smoking and Barbecuing / Re: Have Brisket, Will Travel?

Sorry I saw your question so late! I recommend that you transfer the cooked brisket to a glass mold and wrap it well in a few bags to keep it warm if there is no place to heat it up. I hope everything worked out for you and your nephew had a great prom. My daughter is going on a trip to Europe with her friend after graduation, and we have already booked her train tickets at and a hotel. I think it's excellent practice for teens to take a gap year and see the world. What does your nephew do after high school?

Yes you could but the digital smoke generator needs to have an input from a temp. sensor in the oven so you'd have to install one. In my most humble opinion you won't gain anything but some timing stuff and lots of buttons to push.The digital model has the same temp swings as the analog and is sensitive to the cold.

I own the original Bradley manual smoker 4 rack and would like to know if I can replace that feeder with an upgraded digital feeder?
Hi gregreid;

Welcome to the forum.

A few users have posted that they have made this mod, and are using the original controller; but I always lean towards the side of caution, and would not run this type of setup without a third party controller.
I have the original Bradley smoker with the analog dial controller.  This one:

I'd like to change the heating element to the Tempco 900, as many others have done.  But will it work with my original controller, or do I need to upgrade it too?

Greeting fellow Manitoban and welcome to the forum. I have the 6 rack digital and did the second element mod a couple years ago. I also have the PID and haven't looked back!! Love my smoker and smoke right up to Christmas, and then let it rest till April. I do have it in the garage though and just vent the exhaust out the man door, In the cold the only serious issue I find is the smoke condensates and turns into black rain, and can drip back onto your food.

Hi gumby2383;

Welcome to the forum.

Just wanted to applaud you for smoking a 26 pound turkey in the Bradley.

I've tried not to reheat pre cooked shrimp. They always turn out to rubbery for me. You may want to search for "butter bath shrimp" recipe techniques, and reduce the cooking time.
