I don't know of any controllers that don't use an on/off cycle.

What brand of controller are you using now? Could there be a problem with your controller ? What wattage is it rated for, and what is the wattage of your heating element?

General Discussions / A new project....

Hello....

I build a new smoker and installed a single burner hot play. But problem is when temperature rise to some point the burner is  turning off and after while turn on again. It do not let the burner run steady and reach temperature I need to do hot smoking.
I need this to produce the smoke and at same time hit for smoker.

I am looking for something that could let to skip this or maybe there a some brand that dont have this cycling.

The heater controller allows you to increase and decrease the heat output of internal heating elements, hotplates, and band heaters without the issues caused by thermostatic control, such as cycling. This allows you to run at maximum power during the heat-up process, and then reduce the heat for production. No wiring is necessary- just plug in your heater and go!
Unlike some controllers, our heater controller is designed for extended use specifically with high-power heat sources and will not overheat or become excessively hot.
Features:

110V
4000W Maximum
 Includes digital output display making fine adjustments easy
 Universal output plug

Thank you for any help ...advice in this matter.

The CookTool app is primitive. There is no import function.  I also find it very frustrating to program a recipe with more than a few steps that the P10 will actually carry out.

The file that contains the recipes is called the Menu.txt. If you move someone's Menu.txt into the folder that you store your Menu.txt, your file will be overwritten and replaced with the other file. Maybe in the future, Bradley will add an import function.

The New Bradley Professional Smoker (BS1019) / Re: Cover availability
« Last post by Habanero Smoker on September 15, 2021, 01:57:20 pm »
The outside dimensions are about 17 x 22.25 x 29. Go on Amazon and look for a vertical smoker cover that is larger but close to those measurement. I purchased a Char Broil cover at Lowes which was discounted due to the torn packaging. I've looked but don't see that Char Broil size any more.

I don't have this cover, but it is an example of a cover that should fit the P10

The New Bradley Professional Smoker (BS1019) / USB PreProgramed recipes anywhere?

Are there any pre-programed recipes for the P10 that can be imported to the app?
Seems the app would be extremely useful if we could automagically share recipe parameters electronically.

I just ordered my first smoker, a Bradley P10.
I'm extremely excited and am looking for a cover. The P10 cover from Bradley is sold out.
I live in the US - anyone know where I might be able to get one?

Also I'm open to any hints and tips for the smoker.

There is no need for puck savers when using the P10. The bisquettes are delivered by a turntable which moves one bisquette from the bisquette tube to directly over the burners.

Don't load your bisquettes until after you turn the main power on. If you load before turning on the power you will lose one bisquette. This is because when the power is tuned on it performs a self diagnosis, and part of that diagnosis is that the turn table rotates a half of turn, and will place a bisquette over the burner. Then the P10 will automatically feed a bisquette to the burners when the burners reach the appropriate temperature. Also do not advance a bisquette right after you turn on the smoke, because the same will happen. So if you are going to use the advance button make sure the bisquette burning if up to the right temperature.

If you have any questions about the P10 or issues please post; there are a few of us that have them and can help you.

As mentioned, today's porcelain enamel clad cast iron is very easy to maintain. Almost as easy as cleaning non-stick pots and pans. I never used ceramic cookware, though it is lighter than cast iron, I cannot provide any other information. The food produced out of either should taste the same. If you have uncoated cast iron that is just seasoned, you may want to avoid cooking acidic foods, that require a long cook time such as making tomato sauce.

The ceramic cookware is also good for the cook, it never affects the human stomach. Cause I personally use it for cooking. I never faced any problem till now.
