Z Grills Smokers Review

Z Grills is a brand known for making smokers very similar to those of Pit Boss and Traeger. Most of their products are pellet grills that work by burning wood pellets to create heat and smoke.

Bradley Smoker Reviews

Bradley Smoker Reviews

Bradley, also known as Bradley Smokers, is a family company and one of the most recognizable names in the outdoor smokers’ industry. The company was founded in the 1970s, and that is one interesting story.

Once upon a time, there were two men; one knew how to catch salmon but he had no idea how to smoke it. Funny enough, he became the founder of Bradley’s electric smokers. How did this happen you may wonder? Well, one day he met a master smoker who wanted desperately to learn how to catch salmon. Bradley’s founder gave him some tips and got some great smoker recipes in return.

Back in the day, the entire smoking process was much more difficult. That is what motivated the founder of Bradley to come up with smoker designs that will make the entire process easy and enjoyable.

People behind Bradley smokers know that the most important part of the entire smoking process is controlling the smoke. That is why the company makes sure that its products are characterized by outstanding performance.

There are only three models of electric smokers that Bradley manufactures and we’ll cover below (almost) everything there is to know about them!

Guide to Different Types of Smokers

A smoker is an outdoor cooking appliance, similar to a grill. What makes a smoker different is that it can maintain low cooking temperatures for longer periods of time while simultaneously producing smoke and holding it so that the food can absorb it. A good smoker can do all of this efficiently while taking up the same amount of space a regular barbecue would.

There are many ways to smoke your food because there are several different kinds of smokers and smoker-grills available on the market. You get to choose between charcoal smokers, wood smokers, electric smokers, gas smokers, and pellet smokers. Each type comes with certain advantages and disadvantages. We will cover each type of smokers in this article and present you with some of our top picks.

Ultimately, it is up to you to choose what kind of barbecue would you like to smoke and how much time and effort are you willing to put into it.

You just put the food in, turn the smoker on, and then you can snooze in your lounge chair or spend time with your family. Or, even better, you can turn the smoker on before you go to work and then come back to a tender, smoky, juicy meal.
