Temperature is very inconsistent. It can heat up to 260 in 15 minutes or it might take an hour. Once it reaches temp I add my meat and it will never get back to desired temp. I've used it 5 times and now the burner for the chips doesn't work. I called Bradley for advice and very disappointed with their customer service. Returning to Home Depot.

The thermostat is un-controlable and it takes for ever to get back up to temp after you open the door.

The Bradley smoker works great as far as getting a consistent smoke. I like that it periodically feeds the pucks into the smoker box so there is no need to open the door and loose heat/smoke. However you will need to open the door to discard the burnt pucks that get extinguished in the water bowl in the bottom of the unit after some hours of smoking.
I also suggest you purchase a thermometer that monitors the internal temperature along with the meat temperature. The will help you from opening the door when it is not necessary.
Cleanup of the unit is very easy and it can be stored indoors or outdoors (with a cover) once it has cooled.
The only other thing I do not like is the availability and cost of the pucks. I bought a larger box online than they sell in the stores. This helped cut the costs a little. However, the pucks are what allow you to get the consistent smoke. That's the price you pay for not sitting right next to the smoker all day.

So far I've done Pastrami, cheese and Turkey breast in the smoker. All have come out fantastic. I thought using an electric was cheating, but it is so easy and you only use it for the amount of time needed. When I used to smoke with my side box grill, you would have coals and wood that would burn for many hours after, or need to be dumped in water. With this smoker, just put in 3 bisquettes per hour and when they are burnt you are done. The only drawback so far is that the local stores do not carry the bisquettes, hopefully enough smokers will be sold they will start stocking them. It would also be nice if Bradley could supply at least the 3 bisquettes needed for seasoning the unit (of course more would be better). In short make sure you buy the bisquettes along with the smoker, and a cover (I purchased a 48 pack of Hickory and the cover at the time of purchase). One other thing, the heating element is only 500 watts, so it does take a while to get up to temp. And if you open the door, it takes a while to get back up to temp. So, make sure you preheat and try not to open the unit too often while cooking.

I was researching different smokers for my husbands birthday. I was told to go electric. I found the Bradley smoker on the Home Depot web site with excellent reviews.
They are all correct. He couldn't be happier. Using the electric feeder with the briquettes, you don't have to keep opening it. The food is excellent. The cost was almost $100.00 cheaper then priced at a local sporting goods store.

I've smoked ribs (pork), chicken (whole), Apple-chicken sausage and tri-tip, they have all been fantastic. I got a great deal from Home Depot.com, knowing what I know now, I would have purchased this years ago. Cleanup is easy and the trays are dishwasher safe.
