Installed on my old Treager that never seemed to have enough smoke flavor no matter who's pellets I used. Did not like the smoke tube as it left a lot of build up in the chamber. But since adding the Downdraft and a new controller that allowed me to adjust fan speed I have to admit the pellet cooker is now on par with a stick burner. Have done Ribs , Sausage and Summer Sausage and a Pork Shoulder all were far better than what had been smoked before. As others have mentioned now smoke comes out the drain and will need to figure a way to control it. Installation was easy and I chose to replace my hinges with Rectec lid stop hinges. Pellet usage is visibly less and heat is more stable across the grill. This is a Great Way to add new life to a old grill

Excellent product , keeps smoke where it is needed . I also plug the grease drain with a paper towel to stop smoke from blowing straight out hole .

Was looking to keep the smoke in my Traeger longer. Ordered this up and installed it. Works like a charm. I even modified my top take so it would work with this installed.

The day I got this I installed it and its been great ever since. I get more flavor and use less pellets while maintaining the desired temp...
Very happy with this and would recommend this to anyone with a pellet smoker. THANK YOU!

I was anxious to get this and see if did as advertised. I was quite pleased to say Yes, it does. I found that the downdraft added smoke flavor to the foods I have cooked so far. I ordered it knowing it would take 3 weeks for delivery but was pleased when it arrived a few days ahead of time.
I was curious if the temperature would be more stable and after a couple of cooks I noticed it was. I also used a remote ambient temperature probe in different spots across the grill grates. I noticed that the temperature seems to be more consistent all over the grilling surface. I had a hot spot on the right rear corner of my grill. The Downdraft appears to have helped keep the heat more evenly distributed.
I knew when I bought it that the lid catch would need to be relocated to the left side of the grill. I put the catch in a vice and used a torch to heat it up and bend it the way it needs to be. It wasn't that difficult to do and only took a few minutes.
I am pleased to say this is a great product.
