use a dimmer switch...
Posted by Swissy on Aug 24 2004
if the Bradley will not go below 125 degrees, consider using a light dimmer switch to reduce the power to the element. I made one by putting the switch in a box, and splicing an extension cord on both ends. Plug the smoker into it, and presto! A temperature control unit. Works GREAT on my homemade smoker- I put a 1500 watt heating element into it, and I can go from 80-90 degrees (depending on outside temp) all the way up to 300+ degrees! Cold smoked salmon all the way to smoked turkey and prime rib, all for just the cost of the parts (I have less than $150 into a 2x2x6' smoker)
