  • Smoke Daddy

    in looking for a compact smoker that we could take with us while traveling I haven't found many to choose from .... has anyone used a Bradley Propane Smoker .... the best price for one of these smokers is shown in the link .... Bradley has good name in this area so I tend to believe it works .... our Holland Companion Grills are great but I haven't found them to be effective when used as a smoker .... in addition, comments/links from anyone who may know of a different compact smokers that lend themselves to camping would be appreciated

    Jim, you should get a Smoke Daddy and add it to your current grill.

    It will provide the smoke you want and is VERY compact.

    You can even cold smoke things like cheese.

      very interesting .... didn't know something like this existed .... I can see it being a very good addition to one of our home style Holland grills .... after going out and looking at our Holland Companion grills, I don't think there is sufficient sidewall length to make one work .... tip appreciated

            I'm jealous.
            It is the new design with folding legs, and a handle on top.
            Haven't had much luck with putting the wood chips on the tray in the Holland, this might be the answer.

            Maybe the Holland folks will see this, and come up with there own design.

              now that is interesting .... I hadn't thought of installing one on the back of the grill

                over the last couple of days I've changed my mind several times about what would be best for us in the area of a smoker to take with us when we are traveling .... the probable solution became much clearer today when I learned we are going to have to replace our current home smoker (as discussed in this thread) .... it now seems to me that Russell's suggestion of Smoke Daddy offers a way to take care of a couple of issues .... I believe that using one to provide smoke for both our Holland Companion and the home smoker I hope to rebuild offers a very good return on the money spent to buy the Smoke Daddy

                    I wonder how that would work on my Brinkman? I'll bet it would do really well.
                    Thanks for the info

                      I've been thinking about adding a Smoke Daddy to a small Holland Companion size grill and do have a couple of concerns .... with such grills, the propane burner is usually mounted within the grills casing .... on the Smoke daddy web page they show their 6" model mounted on a Companion with its chimneys down .... while it is possible to cook with them down on an electric Companion it isn't with a propane model .... it would be possible to cold smoke with this configuration .... if the smoke stacks were raised and the burner lit, I wonder if smoke would remain in the grill at a sufficient concentration to flavor the meat as one would hope

                        Can you pop a couple soup cans over the stack????
                        Punch a couple nail holes in them to keep the burner from smothering out...may be an "engineer as you smoke" kinda thing....

                          our Master Built electric smoker has an adjustable smoke vent .... I've actually experimented with closing the smoke stacks on our propane Companion .... with both closed the flame went out .... with one open it did burn but seemed to cause the flame to smoke .... kind of like cooking on a burner which blacks up the bottom of a pot .... I'd guess that using a vented soup can type cover over the stacks could be made to work but I suspect it would take some pretty large holes .... the addition of smoke from a Smoke Daddy would seem to me to complicate getting the proper gas/air mixture required for a clean/efficient flame

                            Have you ever tried the wood chips in a foil pack and just laid it on the metal under the grill? I have been playing around with smoke on my companion w/o much luck.

                            Following this thread with hope of something else to try that does not cost $$$$

                              A clean/efficient flame may be unobtainable with a Smoke Daddy....would propping the hood open a tad allow too much heat to escape??
