The secret to the Bradley Smoker is the Bradley Flavour Bisquettes. Hardwood chippings are bound together using precise quantities at controlled pressures and densities, the flavour of the smoke determined by the variety of wood burnt. Alder and maple give a rich and distinct flavour commonly used with seafood, hams and bacon. The stronger and very distinct flavour of mesquite and hickory are commonly used for smoking beef and pork products such as pork shoulders and beef brisket. Apple and cherry impart a sweeter, milder smoke flavour, commonly used with poultry and wild game meat.
Alder, the wood of the North West, is most commonly used for smoked salmon because of its milder flavor. However, thanks to its light, sweet, and musky flavor, Alder Bisquettes add a smooth smoke flavor perfect for almost any dish.
