Why Bradley Smoker

Today, Bradley Smokers are the food smoker of choice for many different and disparate user groups.

The Bradley Smoker Story describes how the design originates among the salmon smokers of British Columbia, and it is in the category of salmon smoking, be it hot or cold smoked, that the true worth of a food smoker is probably best judged. In the smoking of salmon, taints in flavour, marginal differences in wood types, and the consequences of over or under smoking can be all apparent. The key factors of quality, reliability, and repeatabilty is what sets Bradley Smokers apart.

Happily these merits hit a chord with users well beyond the salmon smoking fraternity, and we find our smokers being used accoss many countries  and for many different purposes. Home gourmet chefs, field sportsman, restauranteurs, cookery schools, smallholders, and home users who want the authentic taste of American barbecue: all find a place for Bradley Smokers in their outbuildings and gardens. 

Here, we have collected some testimonials from our different types of users. We are grateful for their kind words.

" I have been using the Bradley Smoker for six years and it has revolutionised our menus in the restaurantsto the point that we are even selling de Beauvoir smoked salmon in Selfridges food hall. Although we use them commercially for all our restaurants they are a fantastic thing to have at home if you are a keen fisherman, smoker, or experimental cook, having it at home in the garage or built into the shed. "

Mark Hix, chef and restaurateur

Using the Bradley Smoker gives us an extra technique angle when developing new recipes.  The consistency of the smoke is what gives this product a consistent reliability which is what we need due to the precise nature of our cooking.  Other smokers tend to be erratic."

Nathan Outlaw, chef and restaurateur

" At Gortons we use Bradley Smokers for a range of speciality dishes, especially when game is in season. In a busy restaurant kitchen they provide us with the flexibility to create our own smoked food items with remarkable ease and efficiency. "

Peter Gorton, chef and retaurateur

Field Sportsmen

" Bradley Smoker brings a new dimension to cooking game, with flavour and texture guaranteed.  It makes the game season last longer by allowing us to extend the shelf life when there is a glut of in-season game available. A fantastic way to add value and a different eating experience."
