The New Bradley Professional Smoker (BS1019) / Re: First week using P10

I keep my bisquettes in waterproof plastic containers and store them in my shed. So far I haven't had any major problems by storing them this way.

Below is a link to the USDA on high altitude cooking that may be helpful.
High-Altitude Cooking

Below is a thread that discusses cooking at higher elevations:
Cooking Temps vs Elevation

I'll definitely let you know what Bradley says.

Thanks for the heads up on the possible residue on the burner plate with premium bisquettes.  I have not tried any premium yet, just the standard hickory, alder, maple and apple, “flavors” I am familiar with and have used in the past (with a non Bradley smoker) so I have a reference point as I learn how to use the Bradley smoker system. I’m all in with the P10, as I’ve already purchased 10 different bisquettes flavors.

A question regarding storage of bisquettes, I’ve decided to place them in water proof storage containers to prevent swelling from humidity absorption over time as I probably have at least a several month supply and for some flavors I suspect they will be around for more than a year. Was planning to store a few boxes outside with the smoker and the rest in my garage. My wife was already concerned about the small flakes of wood that are a bit messy in the kitchen, and strongly suggested they be kept outside (“like you have for years with our old smokers”). I was originally planning to keep them inside the pantry. When I checked locally in Denver metro, the bisquettes are pretty scarce and limited selection, each vendor had a few boxes, nowhere near a full selection. So I ordered a bunch of boxes online. There must not be very many Bradley smokers here in Denver metro.
Any hints smoking at altitude?

I’ll be interested to hear what you learn from Bradley regarding the firmware versions. It would also be interesting and possibly helpful if others who are checking this thread to post their firmware versions here. Probably currently not a big deal as everything is working very well but if there are updates in the future, such as Bluetooth or Wi-Fi connectivity options a firmware update will be more important.

The version number is strange. I thought everyone in North America would have the same version. I'm thinking b002 is equivalent to version 2.0, and b021 would be equivalent to version 2.1. There may be something wrong with the site, which is considering b002 as the latest version, and it is not directing me to the latest version. Bradley may provide me a direct link to the latest version. I'll let you know what I find out.

While I'm thinking about it. If you use the the Premium bisquettes, check your burner plate after each use. I find that these bisquettes can leave a residue on the burner which will build up over time. When cool, I just use a piece of paper towel, and isopropyl alcohol to clean the excess off the plate.

I have been watching the smoker pretty closely just to learn how it works and what works, internal temp, food probe temps, how much smoke, etc.  In my jammed puck there was no error message, I just noticed the smoke stopped so I opened it, lifted the smoke diffuser (found a burned out puck, pushed it into the water tray, then when I checked the feeder tube and removed the existing pucks, I found the jammed one at the bottom.  Loosened it up, it dropped and everything back on track. Hopefully it was a random event.  Cannot rule out user error, since I’m new at this but will continue to keep an eye everything.

The firmware number is interesting, that’s specifically why I posted it to see if everyone had the same version.  I recall you answered a post awhile back regarding someone updating their firmware from the European site and you gave them some instructions.  Let  us know what Bradley says about the different numbers and if anyone else has checked their firmware it would be interesting what version they have!

Sounds good.

I just picked up a small top round that was on sale. Plan on making dried beef out of it.

The Black Bradley Smoker (BTIS1) / Re: Auber control and Bradley plug wiring?
« Last post by Habanero Smoker on October 23, 2021, 02:44:02 pm »
Are you sure you have the power cords plugged into the correct sockets?

If you are hooked up properly, then you may have a bad PID. Once you are past the set temperature the light on the PID should stay off (thus turning off the power to the element) until the temperature of the cabinet comes down below the set temperature. You should send an email to Auber and explain the problem. I heard he is very quick in responding, and very helpful.
