Question about Bradley BTST02 - Stainless Steel Smoker
If you take a flashlight and look down the tray where the bisquettes feed onto the heater you might find that the coating on the bottom has rusted through (that part of the tray is not stainless steel), and the rusty metal in that spot creates a rough spot. If so, the puck pusher sticks, and you can hear the motor clicking, but the bisquette does not advance. If so, it's an easy fix. Do not replace the motor. Just go buy the thinnest piece of stainless steel you can find. Get a piece about 3" X 6". Cut it down to the size of the tray, and slip it into the tray (under the puck pusher) so that it just extends past the feeder (It will hang out the front onto the stainless tray about 2"). My fit was pretty snug, so I just pushed the metal down flat, and it stayed in place. Everything was good to go!

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.

Soak hardwood chips in water for at least 30 minutes and up to 2 hours for larger chunks. Drain them completely before adding to the smoker unit. Use 1 1/2 cups of wood chips when smoking for less than 3 hours. For longer cooking times use 3 cups of wood.
Place the bottom unit that contains the heating element on a sturdy surface, away from flammable materials. Make a foil pouch containing the wood chips and punch a few holes in the top. Place this pouch onto the pan containing the heating element. The chips can be added directly to the pan, but the foil pouch makes cleanup easier.
Place the large water pan onto the unit and fill it 2/3 full of water or apple juice. The water or juice will moderate the temperature and provide moisture for the cooking food.
Add the cooking grates to the top of the unit and close the lid to allow the unit to preheat.
Place the food on the preheated grates and cook until done. Keep the lid closed as much as possible to maintain the heat. Open the vent on the top of the lid to allow the smoke to escape.
Check the water level occasionally by opening the door on the side of the Charbroil Electric Smoker unit. Add more water as needed.
Add more soaked wood chips after a few hours if the smoke begins to die away. This is optional; the chips provide flavor but are not necessary for cooking the meat.
