The Smoke Generator with Adaptor is a highly adaptable unit that allows you to retrofit almost any small structure into a smokehouse. Consisting of two parts (Smoke Generator and Adaptor) this highly versatile unit allows you to re-purpose almost any small structure into your own customized smoke house. The Smoke Generator is identical to the generator on the Bradley Original Smoker. With fully automatic smoke you can turn it on, load it with nine hours of Bradley Flavor Bisquettes, set the temperature, and smoke away. This unit is easily attachable to your structure of choice to create your very own smoker. The removable side panel makes for ease of cleaning and preventative maintenance.
The second part of the apparatus consists of a stainless steel face-plate, with an adjustable collar onto which the smoke generator fits by means of two lugs. This allows the smoke generator to be easily removed from the faceplate in order to facilitate cleaning and storage. The intention is that the faceplate remains permanently attached to the structure that you use for smoking.
The unit also uses Bradley Flavor Bisquettes. It is particularly well suited to cold smoking. Where the cabinets fitted to the other models are insulated, this causes heat to built up within the cabinets, which mitigates against cold smoking. However, the chances are that your home made structure will be of a considerably larger volume, and may not be insulated. As a consequence, you are highly unlikely to experience any built up of heat in your structure, and providing the ambient temperature is low enough: below about 28°C, then you will have no difficulty cold smoking. For the other Bradley Smoker models, we recommend the use of the Cold Smoke Adaptor accessory when cold smoking.
An ideal structure might be an old chest freezer, stood upright, the lid for the door, with an 11 cm hole in the side for the adaptor, and a vent in the top in order to allow for a natural draft to flow through the structure. It is important that this draft occurs, both in terms of the quality of the smoked product, and to stop smoke being drawn back into the Smoke Generator. If this does occur then it would eventually cause a build up of tar on the mechanism.
A blueprint to build your own smokehouse is included with the unit.
Bradley Smoke Generators are used to considerable effect by small time producers of, for example smoked hams, bacon and salmon. There are many users who are able to run successful smoking businesses just by using one or more Bradley Smoke Generators.
A question we are often asked is what size of smokehouse can be sustained by a Bradley Smoke Generator. There are many variables that would effect the answer so conducting careful scientific experiments would be unlikely to be helpful, however an 3,5m² room is well within capacity. If you are really looking for a solution of this magnitude then you would in any case be advised to deploy two generators, keeping one as a spare if needed.
This product won the coveted Vesta Award in 2003, for innovation in design and technology, not to mention the many prizes for smoked food won by users ever since.
