Smoker feeds all pucks spontaniously

My bradley smoker worked great for the first 3 times I used it, then it decided to start feeding all the pucks through continuously until it runs out while flashing E on the smoker side of the digital read out. I called bradley and asked them what to do, they told me it was as simple as cleaning up the orange wire in the back of the digital control box. When I opened it up there was nothing in there that even looked remotely dirty, none the less I cleaned and wiggled all the contacts and it still does the same thing. Any suggestions?

    I am mid way through smoking a brisket. Earlier this morning I found that my Bradley Digital smoker was shoving pucks through as fast as it could. With a 60$ cut of meat on the line I removed the smoke generator and opened it up. I did so by backing out the screws that soround the perimeter of the base. After a quick inspection I found a loose wire. In my case it was one of two orange wires that plug into a small white plastic electrical connection. These wires make contact via small silver probes crimped on to the end of the wire. If you can see any of the silver crimped probe the wire is not making good contact. I used a pair of needle nose pliers to shove the probe fully into the white plastic connecter. Since then things have running perfectly

How do I smoke in this Smoker/Grill? Like where do I put the Smoker chips there is no smoker chip box, just the pan for the charcoal and a pan I think for water.

Hi karin 1967...

To use your Brinkman Smoker or Other Smokers
1... Marinate or place a rub on the meat you will be smoking, and let it sit for a few hours or overnight in the refrigerator.
2...Cover your wood chips with water(and if you wish you can add some Jim Beam Whisky or other flavorfull liquids in a bowl with the water, 1 inch above the wood chips and use a flat peice of metal (pie pan,etc.)to weigh the wood chips down underwater.
You will do the wood chips at least 24 hrs before you plan to start smoking this gives the wood time to soak in the flavorfull liquids.
3...Start a fire in the smoker having the fire below the meat, but do not put the meat on yet, wait till the flames die down first.
Once they are coated with gray ash, you can place the meat on the racks and add your soaked chips to the smoker.
I would place an aluminum drip pan under the center portion of the cooking area on your smoker, to catch the juices from the meat if you are not using a water pan in that position.
4...Place the meat in the smoker on the grilling surface, and place the wood chips over the charcoal and hardwood in the main grilling area Close the lid and do not open it unless you must add wood chips during the cooking process.
5...Continue adding wood chips to the tray as needed during the time you are cooking.
If you have a Brinkmann or other smoker with one chamber for placing the wood chips and the meat, add wood chips only once per hour.
6...Apply your sauce to the meat one hour before the meat should be done.
Test your meat with a thermometer for for an internal tempreture of 160 degrees for medium and 170-180 degrees for medium well to well
Note: Apply the sauce quickly to avoid loosing the heat in your smoker if you leave it open too long it will allow the heat and smoke to escape, increasing the cooking time.
Close the lid if it needs to continue cooking till you reach the right internal tempreture
7...Test your meat with a meat thermometer after a few hours of cooking time.
Make sure your meat is at least 160 degrees internal tempreture for medium and more than 170 degrees for medium to well.
Close the lid and maintain your heat if it needs to continue cooking.
Please take time to rate me.

I have a Lincoln Pro Core 100 wire feed welding machine; it is (5) years old. I use the machine often. A year ago I built a 5' X 20" barbeque pit out of pipe and attached a 2' X 2' X 4' smoker to it...


There is nothing wrong with your machine. The Pro-core100 is a 20% duty cycle machine; meaning: that will work for 2 straight minutes of welding and then needs 8 minutes to cool down.

Just allow the machine to cool down, turn it off and start again after the 8 minute cooling process.

If this was useful to you please vote. Thanks.

Wood chips won't advance

You said, "wood chips won't advance." That may be the problem, the Bradley Smoker doesn't use wood chips. It uses a manufactured wood chip biscuit, that looks like a small hockey puck. These will feed automatically when the smoker calls for them. Loose wood chips won't.

Pellets keep feeding. cant control temp.

Are you trying to grill or smoke? In ether case, once the pellets ignite and the temperature you want has been reached, the switch should be turned to off. That should stop the auger pellet feed.

Also, are you using Traeger Pellets. They are the only one designed for this grill/smoker. If you're using heating pellets for a pellet stove, that also would cause that problem

If you've lost your Owners Manual, here's a link to it in a downloadable and printable pdf format.

Hope this helps. Please let me know.

Why can't we get smoke out of the Mastercraft smoker. We have tried it at 120 no smoke, 130 degrees it smoked for a bit. we have opened up the vents half way & changed to smaller chips. Now what (the...

On Master Craft Smokers, you need to put the wood chip in when you first turn it on. The heating element will be on trying to bring up the temperature and will start burning the wood. Also open the vents all the way to get the element to turn on more often. 130degrees is very low for smoking anything. Most meat needs to be 170 on the inside to be considered done. Try cranking the temp at the beginning and turning it down after that. After the first couple hours the meat should be considered smoked, then it just needs to cook.

Bradley smoker that shuts off for no reason

Yes I have an answer, Rather than whining to the world, why don't you just ask the Bradley company--don't you think they would know? I know first hand they can help and they do care a bunch about their customers. Odds are you have not programmed it correctly or have it plugged in incorrectly (wires switched).
