This electric smoker is a front loading cabinet smoker that uses the patented “smoke generator” on the side. It will burn proprietary wood “bisquettes” and blows the smoke into the cabinet which has an electric cooking element. Just like pellets, the bisquettes are efficient energy sources and will generate flavorful smoke. It has a digital controller that has smoke generator functions on the left and oven temperature functions on the right. The oven temperatures are set just like on your kitchen range. It also has independent timers that are integrated for both the smoke and oven functions. The 6-Rack Smoker has a 500 watt cooking element and 125 watt smoking element.

The 6-Rack Smoker by Bradley uses a polished stainless-steel interior and is made of powder epoxy steel. This is designed to help the cooker hold up to heavy duty use. Inside the chamber, you will see a traditional hot plate that holds a very low heating element. It also has an elaborate feeding system for the bisquettes that are cube shaped instead of sawdust which would be too fine. Bradley designed this smoker so that these bisquettes are the key to clean smoke since they do not burn down to ash. This results in very little need for energy and can be put out easily in the integrated water bath. Plus, this electric smoker has a secondary heating element which will control the temperature in the smokehouse.
The automatic brisquette feeding system of this electric smoker is what sets it apart from other electric smokers in the market today. All you have to do is load it with enough brisquettes and the smoker will do its thing. This will allow you to sit back and relax as you wait for the smoker to finish cooking.
The Bradley 6-Rack Smoker has a 1-year limited warranty against manufacturing defects. The warranty is effective from the date of purchase and is limited to repair or replacement of components as determined by Bradley Technologies Inc.

Its auto brisquette loading system makes it a very useful electric smoker, especially if you are preparing other dishes because it allows you to work on something else while it does its work. Best of all, this electric smoker has enough space to cook for the whole neighborhood. In our humble opinion, if you are looking for an electric smoker that has enough space to cook for a large party, this is a great choice.
