The New Bradley Professional Smoker (BS1019) / P10 Error6
« Last post by Jmyamada on Today at 02:52:34 pm »
Is there anything obvious you are looking for when you check the bisquete temperature sensor? Or are should you just plan on replacing it?

Hopefully others will provide input.

There are a few things I find frustrating. One, when you power up it defaults to Celsius. I understand that the USA is only one of a few countries that use Fahrenheit, but it would be nice if the default setting could be changed. I don't use the CookTool. I find it's features are simply, and the settings are frustrating to setup. I haven't check out the CookTool in over a year, so it is possible that they have made improvements. Since I don't use the CookTool, I rarely use the Bradley probes, and rely on my Thermoworks Signal, so I can monitor the cook remotely. The child lock feature should be setup so that it can be disabled. I do find the smoke flavor to be stronger than the other models, and I had to adjust the amount of smoke that I have usually had applied with my Original Bradley.

Thanks for letting me know your experience. I’m gonna keep an eye on this thread and others. We have never cold smoked anything so we are good there. Glad to hear you haven’t had many issues!

Hi jlpetersen1,

Welcome to the forum.

The P10 is a good smoker. Most people post when they have a problem with a smoker, and rarely post positive experiences, except for the food that is produced.

I have one of the earlier models, that when I last checked the firmware was not updatable. Since I've purchased mine, there have been several improvements in the firmware, and a new circuit board design. The firmware is updatable in these later models, as far as I know. Plus you can't beat Bradley's Customer service.

I haven't had many problems , either mechanical or physical, that I couldn't fix on my own, in a relatively short time. But others have had issues with the electronics, or the turntable. If you look at some of those posts, there could be some user error, but it is unknown since most don't report back if their problem was resolved and/or how it was resolved.

It's good for barbequing foods, but you can't cold smoke with it. Hot smoking; which I consider keeping temperatures between 100 - 180F, in itself is difficult. But if you mainly barbecue ribs, brisket, pulled pork, Rib Roast, chicken, turkey etc. it does a great job. Although it does apply more smoke than the other Bradley's.  Another thing to keep in mind, if you live in a cold climate; is that it will not operate if the ambient temperature is 16F or lower.

Our current smoker is on its last leg after 7 years or so and this P10 looks Awesome. However, I see all the threads on here and then when I look online elsewhere I see the same thing and am concerned. Any news on if they are still having the same issues or have they got those issues worked out to where it's a solid smoker now? Being as expensive as it is I don't want to put that kind of money down on something that will give me problems all the time.

Any advice would be appreciated.

I'm not much help on this one. I'm not that familiar with the New Original Bradley. You may want to check with Bradley Support, if what you are planning to do will work. They may or may not answer. They may see it as a liability on their end. It the new type of generator can be adapted for use with your smoker, that would be less expensive, and solve both problems. If you buy the smoke generator with the adapter, that would cost you more upfront. Plus that slider controller will not last forever, and a replacement part will be almost impossible to find, so you would have to rig up some other type of rheostat to control the temperature, or purchase a temperature controller.

Looking at the manual, it looks as if the only cord attaching the new dial type generator to the cabinet is a short jumper cord. Which would mean the heat is controlled by regulating how much current is delivered to the cabinet. If so, you would not need to purchase a new heating element, which wouldn't be a bad idea to have an extra one around. What you would need to do is either wire the heating element to bypast the slider control, or leave the slider control at full power. Then the generator should control the cabinet temperature.

Depending on how old you Original Bradley is, you may already have a short jumper cord. If you don't you would need to purchase one, to hook the generator to the cabinet.

But you will need to check with Bradley, or someone with the newer type of generator can add any information on this.

So I have the Bradley smoker that has the temperature slider underneath the door. The slider knob is broken however I am able to slide it with a small flathead screwdriver to adjust the temperature but now I'm having problems with the smoke generator advancing the pucks forward. I've taken it apart and cleaned it and it seemed to work but then intermittently stopped working. Long story short I was wondering if I could adapt the smoke generator from the original Bradley smoker onto the one I have if I also bought a new heating element that is for the original Bradley smoker? I don't want to buy a whole new smoker at 600 dollars if I can buy 200 dollars worth of parts and fix my problem. My other thought was to buy the generator with the adaptor that they sell to adapt to a custom built smoke house that would fix my puck advancement problem but I'd still be using a screwdriver to adjust my temperature. Also, if I went the second route I'm assuming I'd then have to plug the heating element directly into an outlet and I'm not sure if the fuse in the smoke generator is for the adjustable heating element or for the smoke generator? Any advice would be welcome!

That's what I thought, but needed to make sure. On more than a few occasions I've seen cuts from the pork loin labeled such as Pork Ribeye Steaks, Pork Porter House Steak etc.

Looking forward to your next post.

Sound like they were all good cooks.

I haven't done as much cooking this year as I have unusually done in the past. If you like Blue Hogs sauces, when I'm smoking ribs etc. I use the Original. If I cook in a method where I don't or can not apply smoke, such as sous vide, try using their Tennessee Red. It is flavorful, and it has just the right amount of smoke added. Also, I occasionally will use that sauce, and apple cider (2 parts to 1 part), to flavor my pulled pork when I want something different than the vaunted vinegar. Though the Raspberry Chipotle is also a good choice.

Which part of the pig are the steaks cut from?

They are cut from the shoulder of the pig.    The next time I sous vide these I will take pics and maybe start a new thread with specific details of every step and ingredient I used.
