    you won't be sorry.

    accurate temp control, great support, wide variety of wood, you can't beat these things.

    they smoke alot. they have a forum like this one. there are some pics of guys that have a kitchen hood like set up and they claim it doesn't smoke up the house.

    i have heard the big green eggs are nice, i have never used one.

    i love the bradley, the wood feeds itself on a timer, and the heat is thermostaticlly controlled, you can put your stuff in and walk away (except for the basting)

    the big green egg is kind of pricey, it just sort of looks like a 800 dollar weber, unless i'm missing something. i guess the cost is in the ceramic.


    the drawback for some people with the bradleys is having to buy the wood briquettes for the smoke, but i have found it costs about 4 or 5 bucks per smoke. cheaper than charcol for a regular grill. they sell them at gander mountain or you can ebay or amazon them.

    I have a Weber Smokey Mountain and love it. I try to smoke on it at least once a week. The green eggs are very nice as well and what I wanted when I first got into smoking. After having some spent some time smoking meats with my WSM I absolutely love it.

    I think you can get good results with alot of different models and configurations. The main thing is cooking by internal meat temperatures,, not cook time, oh and buying quality meat!

    Anyone watch that show on TLC called "BBQ Pitmasters" ?
