Bradley Smoker BS916 Review
For over 30 years, Bradley has been making electric smokers, giving meats the best-smoked flavor without all the hassle of barbequing. Nowadays, they are creating smart units with different automated controls. The new bradley smoker bs916 is one of the highest tech smokers yet.
This appliance uses Bluetooth, and we just love everything that comes with this feature. To be precise, it uses iSmoke technology that will allow you to operate the temperature and the appliance right from your tablet or smartphone. All you have to do is to download the application and start cooking those delicious meals you always wanted to try.
You can check out our best recipes and see what you can make for your friends and family gatherings. They will love the results! The unit also comes with the touchscreen that let you set the amount of smoke, temperature and time, so you can easily monitor the food you are smoking.
Without further ado, let’s dive in!
This smoker comes with an attached smoking box. It holds wood chips, so you will be able to load it without any difficulties. The great thing about it is that it features a touchscreen display on its front side. That will provide you a simple way to set the unit to add the chips itself as needed. All you have to do is load the wood, set the controls and leave the appliance to do the rest, without worrying about oversmoking your meal.
This feature is very easy to use because it comes with the bold colors and a brightly lit screen that let you monitor all the settings. With it, you can set the smoking time according to your recipe. When the meal is done, the unit will automatically shut itself down. Another great benefit that goes with this feature is the ability to set the amount of smoke you need to add when you are preparing your meal.
We absolutely love the Bluetooth technology that lets you control real-time progress on any smartphone or tablet. And you will certainly appreciate it, even more, when it is raining outside.
Ideal use of this component is the ability to monitor the actual internal temperature of the meal and the temp of the smoker wirelessly with your mobile. The 2 color-coded temp probes will let you monitor heat at two different places inside the cooking chamber.
That is an excellent benefit when you are smoking a roast or brisket up top and a fish fillets or sausage on the bottom racks. With the iSmart application, you can make adjustments to the settings, check on them and see when your food is ready.
Large Cooking Area
Although this electric smoker has a ten racks capacity, it comes with a six more which is enough for most users. It has 780 square inches of smoking space. However, if you are planning on cooking a lot of sausage or jerky, you may want to purchase four more racks. That way you will add an additional 130 square inches of cooking area. With these extra shelves, your cooking area will have 910 square inches. It is a perfect option for big families and friend gatherings.
This smoker is perfect for both professional and amateur cooks because of its stainless – steel interior and commercial – grade silicone door. Inside of this unit are placed integrated probes that regulate the temp of the meat and will let you know when the food is ready. They also operate with other ingredients and dishes that you want to smoke.
Because this model uses components and parts that are made from stainless steel, you won’t have problems with cleaning it. You will be able to remove the most stuck on of grease or fat and sauces in just a few minutes. Also, the smoke won’t stick to the surfaces because of the design material.
It includes two heating elements which are producing the necessary amount of heat and smoke. First one operates with wood chips to produce the amount of smoke you will need for the meal. The other one maintains the right temperature inside the cooking chamber to ensure that the meat is safe to eat and that is adequately prepared.
This Bradley model comes with some other features such as drip bowl and a rectangular tray. You will get cooking instructions that are great when you are a beginner, and that you need to read before you start smoking that meat. You will also get a recipe book with it with some great and delicious meals you can prepare for your friends and family.
