Removing Pellets from Your Pellet Grill?…. Bucket Head Shop Vac!

5 Gal. 1.75-Peak HP Wet/Dry Shop Vacuum Powerhead with Filter Bag and Hose (compatible with 5 Gal. Homer Bucket)

There are a few good reasons I can think of to remove pellets from your pellet grill/smoker.

  1. You want to switch to a different type of pellet for a particular cook.
  2. You need to clear some sort of a jam or fix a problem.
  3. You’re storing your pellet smoker and want to remove pellets to avoid potential problems.

Maybe some pellet grills have a way to easily remove pellets, but mine (Recteq RT-700)… does not.

Looking for solutions I cam across the Bucket Head Shop Vac.  The Bucket Head attaches to any standard 5 gallon bucket and… vacuums. When I need to remove pellets from my pellet smoker, I just vacuum them out.  When I’m done I detach the Bucket Head from the bucket and put a regular lid on for storage.  It works great!

I only use this for pellets so I don’t have to worry about cross contamination with dirt and such.
