Bradley Smokers are powered by electricity and instead of wood chips, they burn discs of compressed wood, called bisquettes, which are automatically fed onto the burner. The Bradley Original Smoker can hot- or cold-smoke, slow-cook, or roast food, and according to About.com’s Derrick Riches, they can run for up to eight hours “without human intervention.” Their production line offers up to six cooking racks to accommodate a large volume of food, so you can cook for a crowd.   Did you like this?
