Dear Sir or Madam:
“Revolutionary Smoking Technology for Household Chefs”
Thank you for allowing us to introduce you to the Bradley Smoker®. The Bradley
Smoker® will bring years of gourmet cooking to you, your family and friends. Today’s
household expectations: good health, great cooking and product convenience - can be met by
the Bradley Smoker®’s cool, continuous, clean smoke - ALL IN ONE PRODUCT.
After years of experience as serious sportsmen and smokers, we decided that there had
to be an alternative to the labour, mess and unpredictable results associated with conventional
smoking methods. For the last decade, we have researched, built prototypes and field-tested
numerous smoker designs. We are now proud to present the Bradley Smoker®. This
revolutionary smoker, used in conjunction with Bradley Flavour Bisquettes®*, yields
consistently superior results with an absolute minimum of effort.
At Bradley Smoker Inc., all we have done is made better products by eliminating
the guesswork and intensive labour traditionally associated with smoking procedure. Smoke
produced the Bradley way is four times cleaner than smoke produced by identical loose chips
burned in a fry-pan or burn-box.** The automatically extinguished Bradley Flavour
Bisquettes® will prevent formation of high temperature gases and acids which distort the taste
of your smoked delicacies. Plus, the Bradley Smoker® meets both the North American and
European standards.
The Bradley Smoker® is compact, safe to operate and will easily hot or cold smoke with
culinary results. The variety of Bradley Flavour Bisquettes® (Alder, Apple, Cherry, Hickory,
Maple, Mesquite, Pecan and Special Blend) will enable you to prepare all types of gourmet
meals right in your own backyard.
We wish you great cooking and product satisfaction for many years to come.

Seasoning & Preparation
For Use
Getting Started
After seasoning the smoker, refill the
waste pot 1/2 full of water.
Turn on the smoke generator by pressing
the ON/OFF switch (12).
When the smoker generator indicator
light (5) is on, this means the burner element is on and that it will start to burn
Press the bisquette advance button (6)
to push a bisquette onto the bisquette
burner element (F). In approximately
20 minutes the next bisquette will
Note: After the advance button has been
pressed, a new cycle will start, (or)
in approximately 20 minutes a new
bisquette will advance.
Place your food onto the cooking racks
and load them into the smoker.
Set the damper at the desired opening.
If heat is required, slowly move the heat
switch to the desired temperature, as per
the thermometer.
Cold Smoke - use the smoke generator
Hot Smoke - the smoke generator and
temperature heat control switch will be on.
Note: The thermometer will only read the air
temperature inside the tower. To get a
more accurate temperature of the food
being smoked, place a damp piece of
cloth around the thermometer inside the
smoker. Keep in mind that the ambient
temperature will affect the cooking
temperature of the smoker.
Seasoning the Bradley Smoker® is an
ongoing process, the more you use it, the
better tasting your foods will be.
Seasoning is mainly to remove the
impartial smells from your smoker. The
smell of your new Bradley Smoker® is not
necessarily how you want your food to
Seasoning Method:
Clean the racks and drip tray and place
into the smoker.
Fill the waste pot 1/2 full of water.
Load the feed tube with 3-6 bisquettes.
Open the damper (7); slightly [at the top
of the smoker].
Plug smoker into its own designated
Press Bisquette Advance Button (6) until
a bisquette is on the Bisquette Burner
Element (F).
Turn on the smoker by moving the
temperature heat control switch (10) to
between low to medium. Wait for five
minutes. The thermometer (9) should
read 66°C (150°F).
If it is higher, bring down the temperature
by adjusting the temperature heat
control switch to the left to lower and
vice versa when the temperature reads
lower than 66°C (150°F).
Smoke the tower continuously at
66°C (150°F) for 1 - 2 hours, or until
bisquettes are out.
Normal cooking temperature is between
200-250ºF. Keep in mind that the
thermometer is for reference only, and
is not intended to give exact internal
temperatures. The internal temperature
will be higher closer to the heating
Note: Each Bradley Flavour Bisquette®
burns approximately 20 minutes.
“ Remember to clean your smoker
after each use.”
Refer to part numbers in the External Parts List and Internal Components List
Important Safety Precautions
6. Clean the damper (7) [at the top of
the smoker] to ensure it is not stuck.
7. Wipe the door gasket (13) with water.
Bradley Smoker® must be maintained and
cleaned after each use.
Unplug the smoker prior to commencement
of any maintenance or cleaning.
Do not immerse smoker into water.
Do not spray inside of the smoker with
any kind of appliance cleaner.
Do not try to clean the heating element
Do not use aluminum foil inside the smoker.
Do not spray or clean the smoker with
excessive amount of water.
Do not leave unattended when in use.
After Cleaning
1. Place tray (B) and racks (C) into the
2. Insert the smoke generator (1). Plug
short power cord (A) onto the tower.
Refer to ‘Install Smoke Generator’, in
‘Assembly Instructions’.
3. Place waste pot half full of water into
the waste pot position (D)on the
bottom rectangular tray (J)
4. Place bisquettes into the feed tube (H)
and onto drive guide (I).
5. Plug long power cord (E) into
designated outlet.
“Your smoker is now ready to start
another smoke.”
Steps Maintenance Procedures
1. Clean out the waste pot (D). Dispose
of all spent bisquettes carefully as they
may still be hot.
2. Wash drip tray (B) rectangular tray
(J), waste pot (D) and cooking racks
(C) with hot water and dish detergent,
or place them into the dishwasher.
3. Remove food particles and/or grease
residue from the smoker. If the inside
surface requires cleaning, lightly wipe
it with a damp cloth. Once you have
cleaned the smoker, you must re-condition the tower. Refer to ‘Seasoning’
method in ‘Operation Guidelines’.
Note: The tower should have smoke or black
residue on the inside. The more residue
the better the product will taste (e.g:
Similar to a cast iron frying pan, it
must be conditioned before using).
4. The smoke generator (1) should be
kept clean and free of wood chips
and/or grease, at all times. If loose
wood chips have collected in the
smoker tower and/or smoke generator,
simply blow, or vacuum, these particles
away. Unplug and remove the smoke
generator from the tower, if necessary.
Refer to ‘Remove Smoke Generator’, in
‘Assembly Instructions’.
5. The bisquette burner element (F)
should be lightly scraped by using a
wire brush, or scraper, to remove any
residue that has been left by the
burning process.
Trouble Shooting
No Power to smoker:
Check that all plugs are correctly
inserted into sockets. Check fuse box.
Check to make sure the outlet - Ground
Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI), has not
been tripped.
Bisquette will not advance:
Check the drive guide and clear loose
wood chips. By clearing the smoke
generator, bisquette jamming and undue
wear and tear of smoke generator would
be avoided.
Bisquette does not burn completely:
Check to see if any electrical equipment
is plugged into the circuit. The smoker
should be plugged into its own dedicated
wall circuit. Check if the burner is free
of residue build up, this can cause the
bisquettes to travel above the burner.
