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*
We at Smoke Daddy Inc are always striving to improve on our Pellet Pro products and one of the largest complaints is the “floppiness” of the auger motor. After researching this, we determined that by changing the way the auger motor is mounted, this would result in a more consistent feed rate and help reduce auger jams in addition to reducing stress on the auger motor gear box. In the meantime, we also decided to upgrade to a heaver duty gear box. We have been running this setup on our Pellet Pro 2300 vertical smokers for the last 5 months with only great feedback from our customers.
We also offer an aftermarket auger motor mounting bracket for your existing pellet grill that will “stop the flop.” It will fit Pit boss, Camp Chef, Traeger and many more. Check it out HERE.
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.

With our newly reengineered PID algorithm named the “Sportsman Program,” you are now able to set the temperature as low as 100 degrees F for smoking at lower temperatures with a pellet smoker. Perfect for smoking jerky, sausage, fish, or anything else that doesn’t require high temperatures to smoke.
*PLEASE NOTE* Since the hopper assembly needs to maintain a fire in the burnpot at all times, you may need to increase the ventilation by cracking open the grill/smoker door. This will allow the heat to escape properly resulting in lower temperatures.
For custom smokers, we offer 3″ Risers that allow the Heat Diffuser to sit 3″ above the burnpot.
This will allow adequate space for the heat to disperse evenly throughout the smoker.
Made from high quality 10ga steel.
