All you need to mount this into your existing or custom pellet grill, is a rectangular hole 4-1/2″ by 5-1/2″.
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.
*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.*

PID Description Overview
As the name suggests, PID algorithm consists of three basic coefficients; proportional, integral and derivative which are varied to get optimal response. Closed loop systems, the theory of classical PID and the effects of tuning a closed loop control system are discussed in this paper.

I originally bought a lower end pellet smoker, and immediately knew it wasn’t going to suit my needs. A bit of research led me to the Pellet Pro Patriot, and it has made all the difference in the world. The unit comes with mounting instructions and a template, but my grill lined up perfectly – no modifications required. The temps run consistent, and within the tolerance I need to do an overnight first stage on a brisket, or an all-day low & slow on a pork roast, and of course everything else is also a breeze. So far, I’ve had no burn back in the auger, which was a constant problem with my old unit. Had an issue with popping my GFCI when I first set it up – a quick email exchange and troubleshoot, and the replacement part is on the way. So … Easy set up? Check! Quality design? Check! Reliable operation? Check! Great customer care? Check! – THAT is how you earn a satisfied customer.

I purchased the Pellet Pro, the heat diffuser and 2 vents from Smoke Daddy Inc last week. I converted a commercial grade food warmer into a smoker. This is my first experience using a pellet style smoker and let me tell the product is amazing. To break it in I smoked up some pork ribs that turned out amazing. Being able to hold a constant temperature in my smoker made all the difference in the world. I make a lot of sausage out of wild game meat and can’t wait to hang sausage and get a good smoke later this fall. If your thinking of making a smoker definitely use the Pellet Pro. For ideas look up Smokedaddy’s YouTube channel. They have a few videos that really gave me ideas for my project
