Bradley Smoker Jim Beam BTDS76JB Outdoor Smoker Review

Bradley Smoker Jim Beam BTDS76JB Digital Electric SmokerThe Bradley Jim Beam 4-Rack Digital Outdoor smoker is the ultimate backyard BBQ smoker. Whether you enjoy the smooth taste of this fine Kentucky bourbon or not, the flavor of smoked goodness from the Jim Beam Outdoor smoker will shine through. The amazing thing about this smoker is that the smoke generator will automatically feed wood bisquettes, so all you have to do is set the digital smoke setting, along with time and temperature and go tend to rest of your BBQ because the smoking is now automated for up to 8 hours. Unlike Jim Beam you are not regulated by a 200-year-old recipe, you can experiment with the wood bisquettes you use and even the liquid you use to soak the bisquettes, such as apple juice, beer, or even Jim Beam to come up with a smoky flavor your guests will love. If you follow the manual, you will cook like a professional even as a beginner, and then, you can experiment with different recipes to match even the best smokehouses. For those BBQ smokers who like technology, the Bradley Smoker BS916 Digital Bluetooth Smoker may just be up your alley. Check it out … but don’t plan on visiting your neighbor while this bad boy is fired up.

Fully-Insulated Stainless-Steel Interior

With the fully-insulated Bradley smoker, you need not be concerned with the outside temperature, whether you want to smoke a Thanksgiving Turkey, a Christmas Ham, or have a special Christmas in July with a smoked ham shoulder, the freezing cold temperature will not affect this smoker. Additionally, the outside of the smoker is barely warm, so you don’t have to worry about the kids getting too close and getting burnt. Therefore, you can setup this 54-pound outdoor digital smoker on the patio or balcony because of its small footprint, it will not take up a lot of room.

Digital Interface & Automatic Wood (Briquette) Feeder

Many other smokers claim to be fully-automatic with digital controls for time and temperature, but this Bradley Jim Beam digital smoker backs up its claim with 8-hour fully automatic time, temperature, and smoke controls, plus an automatic wood feeder. Others claiming full automatic smoking fall short in that you must feed it wood chips to keep the smoke concentration consistent. If you have to add more wood chips after 2 or 3 hours, is it really automatic? Most of the other brands cannot even control the smoke from their digital control panel, you just feed it and take your chances. Hopefully, you will come back before the wood chips are complete ashes.
