Dear Sir or Madam,
“Revolutionary Smoking Technology for Household Chefs”
Welcome to the wonderful experience of backyard smoking and slow
roast cooking. The Bradley Smoker is an insulated smoker oven designed to
automatically generate a continuous flow of clean smoke. It is an outdoor
electrical appliance that enables one to cook, roast, hot smoke, as well as
cold smoke food with consistently superior results using minimal effort.
The Bradley Smoker is unique in that it produces smoke which is four
times cleaner than traditional burn-box chips*. Because it automatically
extinguishes the spent Bisquette, it prevents the formation of high
temperature gases and acids. In addition, the Bradley Smoker meets both
North American and European appliance standards.
There are nine different woods of the Bradley Flavor Bisquettes that are
made especially for your smoker - Alder, Apple, Cherry, Hickory, Maple,
Mesquite, Oak, Pecan and Special Blend. There are a number of recipe
cards that come packaged with the Bradley Flavor Bisquettes which are also
available in the Bradley Recipe Collection, Volume One. Other items of
interest are the Flavor Cures, Bradley Jerky Racks, Bradley Original Racks,
Weather Guard Covers, Bradley Cooking DVD, Caps, Aprons, and the
Bradley Digital Thermometer with meat probe that takes all the guesswork
out of roasting and smoking meat.
I wish you great cooking and smoking for the years to come.
Sincerely,
Wade Bradley
*Based on studies and tests preformed at The British Columbia Institute of Technology.

local authority to determine proper size and
type of fire extinguisher.
• If an extension cord is required, the cord
must be an approved 3-prong (grounded)
heavy duty cord not over 6 feet long.
• Do not use power cords if they have been
damaged.
When in Use
• For outdoors use only. Do not operate in

General Maintenance
Refer to the External Components List & Internal Components List Diagrams
Important Safety Precautions
• The Bradley Smoker must be maintained and cleaned after each use.
• Unplug the Long Power Cord prior to commencement of any
maintenance or cleaning.
• Do not immerse smoker in water.
• Do not spray inside of smoker with any kind of appliance cleaner.
• Do not cover or seal the racks or drip tray with aluminum foil. This can
cause severe damage to your smoker.
• Do not leave unattended when in use.
• Do not spray or clean the smoker with excessive amounts of water.
Instead use a damp cloth.
Maintenance Procedures
• Clean out the Drip Bowl. Dispose of all burnt Bisquettes carefully as they
may still be hot.
• Wash the Drip Tray, Racks, Bottom Rectangular Tray and Drip Bowl with
hot water and dish detergent or put them in the dishwasher.
• Remove food particles and grease residue from the smoker. If the inside
needs cleaning, wipe it with a damp cloth.
Note: The tower should have smoke or black residue on the inside. The more
residue, the better the product will taste.
• The Smoke Generator should be kept clean and free of wood chips
and grease at all times. If loose wood chips have collected in the Smoke
Generator, simply blow or vacuum these particles away. Unplug the Long
Power Cord before removing the Smoke Generator from the Smoke Tower.
Refer to “Remove Smoke Generator” in “Assembly Instructions”.
• The Bisquette Burner should be lightly scraped using a wire brush or scraper
to remove any residue that has been left by the burning process.
• Clean the Damper (at the top of the Smoker) to ensure it is not stuck.
• Wipe the Door Seal with warm water and dish detergent to remove any
leftover residues and food particles.
After Cleaning
• Replace Racks, Drip Tray, Bottom Rectangular Tray and Drip Bowl into
the smoker, making sure all parts are clean and dry.
• Insert the Smoke Generator back into the Smoke Tower.
• Make sure the Long Power Cord is unplugged.

Trouble Shooting
No Power to Smoker:
Check that all plugs are correctly and firmly inserted into sockets.
Check fuse (located on smoke generator). Check to make sure the
outlet, Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI), has not been
tripped.
Bisquettes will not Advance:
Check the drive guide and clear all loose wood chips. By cleaning
the smoke generator, bisquette jamming and undue wear and tear
can be avoided.
Bisquette does not Burn Completely:
Check to see if other electrical equipment is plugged into the
circuit. The smoker should be plugged into its own dedicated wall
circuit. Check to make sure the bisquette burner is free of residue
build up.
Smoker Oven Not Reaching Temperatures:
Allow smoker oven time to preheat. Remember, once food is put
in the oven, the temperature will drop, and slowly rise again. Try
closing the Damper slightly and keeping the smoker out of the
wind. Next, try using a separate thermometer inside the smoker
oven to ensure the temperature is reading correctly.
Note- Normal cooking temperature is between 200° F – 250° F. Keep
in mind that the Temperature shown on the Display is for reference only
and is not intended to give exact internal temperatures of the food. The
internal temperature will be higher closer to the Heat Element.
If these tips don’t work, please call our Customer Service at

Seasoning & Preparation
For Use
Getting Started
•After seasoning the smoker, refill the Drip
Bowl half full of water.
• Turn on the Smoke Generator by pressing
the Generator On/Off switch (12).
• When the Smoker Generator indicator
light (5) is on, this means the Generator has
power.
• Press the bisquette advance button (6) to
push a Bisquette onto the Bisquette burner (F).
Note: After the advance button has been
pressed, a new cycle will start, (or) in
approximately 20 minutes the next bisquette
will advance.
•Place your food onto the cooking racks and
load them into the smoker.
• Set the damper at the desired opening. Do
not close the damper all the way when the
smoke is running.
• If heat is required, slowly move the heat
switch to the desired temperature, as per the
thermometer.
Cold Smoke - use the smoke generator
only. Unplug the Short Jumper Cord.
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, use a meat thermometer.
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 taste.
Seasoning Method:
• Clean Racks, Drip Tray, Drip Bowl and
Rectangular Tray and place in smoker.
• Fill the Drip Bowl half full of water.
• Load the Feeder Tube with 5 Bisquettes.
(note: each Bisquette burns for 20 minutes).
The 2 extra Bisquettes are meant to push the
final Bisquette onto the Burner. These last 2
Bisquettes will not advance onto the Burner.
• Open the damper slightly at the top of the
Smoker Tower.
• Plug smoker into its own designated outlet.
• Turn on the smoke generator by pressing the
Generator On/Off Switch (12).
• Press Bisquette Advance Button (6) until a
bisquette is on the Bisquette Burner (F).
• Turn on the smoker by moving the temperature
heat control switch (10) to medium. Wait for
10 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 hour, or until bisquettes are out.
• Your Smoker will be seasoned having reached
150º F and smoked in for 1 hour.
“ Remember to clean your smoker after
each use.”
