Attaching a Heat Diffuser (PDF)

All you need to mount this into your existing or custom pellet grill, is a rectangular hole 4-1/4" by 5-1/4". 

The hopper assembly is 18" from the center of the burn pot to the mounting edge of hopper in order for the burnpot to be as close to the center of the application as possible.

Each Hopper Assembly is carefully taken out of its packaging, is visually inspected, then is bench tested to ensure each functions properly.  We then repackage every hopper in our own designed packaging which protects them from damage during the process of shipping.

For attaching a Heat Diffuser, please refer to the "Attaching A Heat Diffuser" .pdf at the bottom of the page.

*The PID Controller Operates where the fan motor and auger motor pulsate at different times. It will operate differently than other controller brands to maintain a stable temperature*

*The auger motor is designed to "float" inside of the hopper assembly.  It may appear loose, although that is the design.*

Creative customers like you are using our Original Pellet Pro® hopper assemblies for various custom applications.  We have recently added pre-drilled holes to the hoppers in order to attach legs for added stability.  The legs are available in two lengths and are an optional addition.  The holes can also be used to attach utensil hooks or a shelf if legs are not needed for your custom design. 

Currently, we are in the process of manufacturing shelves for the hopper assembly and will be posted on our website when they become available.
