The Pellet Pro® Upgraded Pellet Hopper Assembly – 36,000 BTUs

(1 customer review)


Holds 35lbs of Pellets!

*NEW* Pellet Dump Feature

We are the #1 Source for DIY Pellet Smokers!

*The 18″ hopper Assemblies are our of stick until the middle of Nov*

SKU: N/A Category:

With our exclusive Pellet Pro® PID Controller© & universal mounting capabilities! Controller can be switched to either side of the hopper, thus can be mounted on both the left and right side of your application!

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

The hopper assemblies are either 12″ or 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.

*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.*

The Pellet Pro® True PID Controller

The Pellet Pro® uses a True PID Controller

PID Description Overview

Proportional-Integral-Derivative (PID) control is the most common control algorithm used in industry and has been universally accepted in industrial control. The popularity of PID controllers can be attributed partly to their robust performance in a wide range of operating conditions and partly to their functional simplicity, which allows engineers to operate them in a simple, straightforward manner.

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’ve only had this a few days, but what a difference. I have a Traeger Lil Tex that I literally wore out…replaced the auger motor and fan, still making noises and the controller went bad, so I decided to buy the complete assembly from Smoke Daddy instead of continuing to replace parts. It fit perfectly, the bolts are a different size, but the new assembly included new bolts, pattern was the same. I had to drill out 2 holes where the temp wires went through because of the connecter on the new one, but I like the connecter, so I drilled the holes and put a piece of gasket over the holes afterward. Fired up, seasoned the pot, and everything works perfectly. We’ll see long term how it holds up, but it is a much better design than the old one. Love the pellet dump feature, and although the hopper is bigger, my old cover fits fine.
