Has anyone been able to successfully empty out their pellet hopper without dumping a ton of pellets on the ground? If so, how did you do it?
I had the same issue when emptying the pellets from my Traeger. So, I came up with this simple accessory to prevent the mess. It is available on my Etsy store. Magnetic Pellet Shoot Extender20210417_173659.jpg

I use a Timberline grease tray and just scoop the pelletts into a 5 gal bucket. Nominally no spill, I also sift the pelletts prior to loading the hopper, if I am changing the pellets the residual pellets will be burned off by the time the grill gets to temp....

Hi I got a brown paper grocery sack ...folded the top so it wouldn't tear as easy and was able to catch all the pellets.. worked sweet..👍

I hate changing pellets! I would use a wooden paint stirrer to try and move pellets to drain hole. Here’s my fix. Bought two 8/32 knobs and replace the the two acres holding the grate in place. Now remove the grate and use my hand to empty out the hopper. :)
