The Pros and Cons
Though this smoker may sound quite impressive from what we’ve said so far, every product comes with a downside. Since we strive to give you all the relevant information about a product, we always provide a list of pros and cons. Here it is
- Longevity: The Bradley Digital 4-Rack Smoker is well-made and should last you years and years. That is due to the fact that it uses high-quality materials including stainless steel, in addition to the excellent internal insulation inside the oven itself.
- Features: This smoker is chock-full of professional tier features. It has a thermostat which monitors the internal temperature, and it’s easy to use digital screen allows you to check the temperature at a glance. Furthermore, the timer feature allows you to go off and do something else while your meat is smoking, and the smoker will automatically shut down once it is finished.
- Price: We were only able to find two downsides to this smoker. Priced at around $375, it is quite steep for an enthusiastic home griller. That is not to say, however, that you don’t get your money’s worth, as the Bradley Digital 4-Rack Smoker provides excellent value for money. Unfortunately, with great value comes a high price.
- Fuel Source: If this is your only smoker, this may not be an issue. The small briquettes you need to fuel the smoker you need to buy online and from them. In comparison to pellet smokers, you can purchase smoker pellets from your local home depot in some cases. Ensure you have back-stock of them, as it would stink to run out mid-smoking.
