New Topics / Topic: Door on OBS 6 rack not fully opening and need suggestions, please!
« Last post by solcany on October 15, 2021, 09:46:47 am »
Hi, does the OBS 6 rack door normally swing open fully?  On mine, the bottom right corner plastic door trim snags against the corner of the smoker wall by about 2 mm when the door opens to about a 130 degree arc from fully closed.  The plastic door trim is part of the bottom hinge point.  There is no adjustment possible.  The door cannot completely open fully and can damage the hinge point if opened too hard.  Do any others have this issue and any suggestions?   Links to 2 images are below and 1 of the images shows the door is opened as far as it can without damage.  Thanks

The New Bradley Professional Smoker (BS1019) / New P10 firmware update?
« Last post by RockyMtnGuy on October 15, 2021, 07:47:02 am »
Good morning, I’m the proud owner of a new P10 with an initial successful seasoning session, used my first 6 pucks and hopefully many more for years to come. As I was filling in my registration form online, I was wondering if I need to update the firmware?  How do you determine current firmware status, and where to download the actual firmware for any update?

Setup and Seasoning went great Wednesday PM. Heated quickly and Shout out to my vendor who promised delivery
within a week but actual arrival within 72 hours of placing my online order smoker and bisquettes.
Impressed how quickly it heated and held temp in cold weather ~45 F, and held steady, and recovered after opening to look inside during seasoning. Have a couple of whole trout thawing I will brine today and plan to smoke for dinner tomorrow.  Picked up some pork loins and whole chickens to break-in and learn about the P10 (relatively inexpensive protein).  I also purchased a set of Spanek vertical roasters I’m dying to try out. Any suggestions for crispy skin for chicken?, was going to try to turn temp up to 320F towards end of cook to see if that works instead of moving bird to oven.  Also saw video of using salt and baking powder as a dry brine overnight prior to rub and cook to increase skin crispness for a turkey, do you have experience with this technique?
A rather dumb question, can you change P10 temperature during cook? Also can more time be added or do I need to wait for program to finish or shut off power switch? Was also thinking about trying some apples today since I have a bunch ripe on trees in my yard.  Thanks for asking!  Tonight have a great piece of tuna to lightly sear outside only on grill (would smoke something but want to use the tuna ASAP).

Have you had a chance to season the P10, and have you decided what your first cook will be?

Will do, very excited because it’s actually going to be delivered today according to fedex 5 days earlier than promised!  Cooling off here in Denver, first freeze last night so we'll see how the 1000watts does to maintain temps. Hopefully will at least get it set up and burned in depending on if and when it arrives. Crazy I’m like a little kid at Christmas waiting for Santa.

Let us know how you make out with your P10.

Thanks for the reply.   Not convinced I want to rely on just the thermal fuse.   Thinking about it.


Does anyone know the temp rating of the Bradley thermal fuse?

Thanks all…

Thanks for your kind response. Will order a pack, I think they come in packs of 30.

The size you have will be fine.

I just remeasured the pan, and the height is actually about 1 3/4". I believe some places call these pan medium deep half size steam table pans. The measurements I had posted were from the website that sells those pans; so they had the height wrong. I think that site gave the height of a half size steam table pan.

The pans you found will work great. The 2.5" is deep enough probably for all your cooks. The 12x10 is more closer to the size of the rack, without blocking too much heat and smoke. I use them mainly to keep the drip pan as clean as possible. I don't use any water in the pan, but if I have a cut that releases a lot of fat, I will swap the pan out if I notice the drippings begin to build up. But usually if it is one butt, I haven't found a need to change the pan. I've done two trays of chicken parts and didn't have to swap the pan out. This is something you will learn as you use the pans.

I get them from a wholesale club called BJ's. You need a membership, and it is a small chain here on the east coast. Below is a link to these pans, but it looks as if they will not restock these. So I better get one more package of them. I also use them for when I smoke salt, and or other seasonings. I now cook my chicken parts in these pans for easy cleanup. Some time this week I plan on smoking some lard it those pans. I use these because the low sides allow for the smoke to more readily flow over the sides to get to the stuff that I'm smoking.

In one of your numerous posts you mentioned you use a disposable aluminum lasagna pan under fatty meats to catch some of the grease to prevent overflow of the grease pan at the bottom. Your description was  12 3/4"L x 10 3/8"W x 4 1/4"H .  Where do you source these from. I only found a few 12x10x2.5 on Amazon, the most common size was 9x13”.  Do you think a 2.5 depth will overflow ever?  I do believe the 4”depth would be beneficial just to move to dispose contents with less chance of spilling. I frequently did the same technique with my masterbuilt but used whatever disposable pans I had.
