There are a few good reasons I can think of to remove pellets from your pellet grill/smoker.
- You want to switch to a different type of pellet for a particular cook.
- You need to clear some sort of a jam or fix a problem.
- 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.
