This is just what the doctor ordered, great way to let smoke move around before leaving, also adjustable, not sure why some one would want less smoke but I love it thanks Don

Definitely cuts down on pellet consumption. Seems to add and help with smoke flavor. Glad I got this for my GMG DB. 5/5

The only issue that i have with it is, when i went to install the rotisserie rod in through the hole in the cover, the hole was not big enough for it.

My Danial Boone has been having temp problem for a while. The unit is 7 years old and was thinking she was on her last leg. Started researching temp problem on line and seen the Don Godke downdraft. The first time cooking with it the temp was a lot better. I had put multiple thermometers in the unit to see what the temps were at versus point. I’m only 5-10 degrees of what the unit is set at. Thank you very much and I would recommend it to all my friends.

Such a great investment. Pellet consumption is down! Flavor and smoke are way up. My GMG JB prime is showing much more even temps across the grill surface with the Don Godke’s downdraft. So easy to install. It really helps with the back left hot spot too. My first cook was chicken and jalapeño poppers. They came out amazing! Now I’m doing a tri-tip and some pork belly low and slow. Working my way to brisket next.
Top quality, very happy with my purchase and it will pay for itself in no time.

I was having a real issue with temp swings on my GMG Daniel Boone Prime. I just could not get the fire shield in the correct position! So, I purchased an Inkbird thermometer and found temps still to be erratic. THEN, I saw that fellow smokers were having good success with the DG Downdraft in terms of consistent temps. Well, I purchased the downdraft from Don Godky. The very first cook was salmon. The temperature remained consistent throughout the cook! I was totally surprised! The salmon had to be the best I’ve ever cooked. I noticed much more of that smoky flavor in the salmon as well.
Since that first cook I’ve done ribs, and a couple of steaks. I also did a 7lb. turkey breast. All came out wonderfully! I totally recommend the Don Godky Downdraft for those having issues with temp swings and who want better smoke flavor!
PS Extremely easy to install.

seen a difference in pellet usage, Easy pay for itself in a year or less. plus holds smoke longer making for a great smoke ring.
