I looking to buy a smoker for wild game and store bought meat. Is Bradley the best one to buy? Should I get an electric or propane smoker? What size is best for normal household use? What flavors are the best to use and finally what do you use to brine the meat? Thanks for all the help.

I have a Bradley electric, non-digital. If I had it to buy over again I would have spent the extra for the digital but at the time I was just embarking upon my smoking adventures. I like the Bradley because of the automatic puck feeding system, it holds a steady temperature, will do cold smoking and is a lot of fun. It has been really reliable. The major drawback is that you have to use the Bradley proprietary wood pucks which are more expensive than regular hard wood but unless you are doing industrial volumes of smoking the price difference is tolerable.

I also use an offset smoker which I like as we'll but I only use it when I have a whole day to spend chained to the smoker minding matters. With three small kids, the Bradley gives me a lot more flexibility to not have to be there the whole time.

Want a great smoker that is fast, easy to use, and makes great food? Read up on this one, read the reviews. Have cooked many a meal on one and had many people go buy after I did, check it out!

I am still into charcoal and wood for heat and love my Lyfe Tyme grill/smoker You do have to tend the fire during the day but it does a great job and when you want to BBQ some ribs it is great as well.

I have had a Treager for 13 years, my three sons all have one, lots of guys at the club have them. You wont be sorry. My only thought would be get the right size. I bought the big one Q75 and since there are only two of us at home now it is too big

I echo exactly what Dan/djldb6 had to say. I will definately step-up to digital controller when analog system stops working. I like the hickory wood chips.

Easy, works well, and affordable.

Love my MasterBuilt electric. Very little mess to clean up and works like a charm. The digital thermometer makes it easy to cook to proper temperature.

Bummer. When I saw the thread title, I thought it referred to a different topic. I was going to tell you that when you found one, please ask her if she has a sister. Oh well.
