I have my Bradley for about a month and I'm still experimenting - so far so good.  I have been keeping the vent just about closed.  Is there a rule of thumb to use regarding the vent?  When should it be open? Closed? Partially open?




Welcome Stu,
Here is what I do. When I first start a smoke I will keep the vent all the way open for about 1/2 an hour to let out moisture.Then I'll close it 3/4 of the way shut.Just so smoke does not come out in between the generator and the cabinet.Hope this helps.[:D]

If you are going to do any cold smoked cheese or lox, open it all the way, put ice in the bowl, and keep the heater off...On hot smokes, I pretty do the same thing Bassman does.

There is room on earth for all God's creatures....right on my plate next to the mashed potatoes.


Thanks for the info.
