Default Opinions on Bradley Smoker

Hi everyone,

A friend of mine is considering getting a Bradley Smoker. Does anyone
on here use one? You can visit their website by adding a dot com to
the end of the joined words. It runs about $400 or so, not counting
their "bisquette" fuel blocks.

Personally, I can't see not spending an extra $150 or so and getting a
Kamado #5 since that's a much more versatile item and doesn't use
proprietary fuel, but I don't want to influence the judges.

Anyone?

On their web page it looks like a good unit. I do have a problem with the
fuel though. I would not want to be stuck with having to buy from them.
I'd look for a better buy.

Their proprietary "bisquit" fuel runs about 50 cents per hour to run.
Using your smoker 20 hours per week means it costs $10 per week, or
$520 per year to run. Forever. No thanks.
