Bradley smoker

I am considering buying a Bradley smoker "please Santa" Would this double up as a drying container for salami, biltong, sausages, ham ect. Not got round to making a biltong box yet and thought this would do two jobs in one.

Franco thought that the biltong box design on my website - www.biltongbox.com - could double up as a salami curing device. Perhaps he could elaborate again.

bradley smoker

I have not used my Bradley yet for salami but with a little thought it could be adapted to make it. The crucial part of salami making is to get the relative humidity(R/H) high (90%)in the first 24 hours, if you put a pan of water in the bottom of the smoker I am sure it will raise the R/H levels.

For the drying stages of the salami process the smoker can be used.

There is a forum for the Bradley smoker at

http://www.bradleysmoker.com/forum/ they have posts on salami there.

I used my Bradley for the first time today. Nothing special just ribs and chicken but boy did they taste good. I smell a bit like a chimney sweep at the moment but well worth it. I advise anyone who can raise the funds to purchase one of these. :D

I'm considering one. Where exactly does one use the thing? Outdoors I presume, but it is electric - right? What about rain etc? Do you then need to store it indoors?

They are disigned for outdoor use only. I used mine in my shed, no real health and safty issues here as long as you check every now and then, but it did stink the place out at first as there was alot of smoke generated. I'm going to knock up some kind of extraction device.
It would be easy to store indoors and use outside as it is very light, the problem being the good old british weather. Im sure you could Knock up some sort of canopy easaly enough, Having seen your biltong box skills :)

I use it in the garage which has a small window in it, it does get a little smoky, if the weather is fine I use it outside.

If you like smoked meats then for a final push check out what the butchers and delis charge for these items. When you get your breath back that should have done the trick.

kind regards

Yor right Parson I'm gonna have to get one next year, smoked food is premium prices in deli's, is the stainless the better option?

stainless

Postby Franco » Fri Dec 10, 2004 8:33 pm

The stainless smoker is exactly the same as the black Bradley apart from the exterior. If you are planning to keep the smoker outside permanently I would go for the stainless one otherwise the black one is fine.
