Remove the grate.
Those two products may be a problem for some people with compromised health as some will attach to the pellets, be vaporized, and then the droplets land on the food. Though it may be trace amounts and not harm very healthy people, some might want to avoid the risk. Food grade silicone lubricant is available in aerosol, sausage makers use it on the grinder head for instance.Turtle wax or armor all the interior wall of the hopper. Or if there is a food grade wax.
It's a slippery slope when those pellets don't feed.
I think one company even made inserts so the walls had a steeper angle.
@divisionbell77Sorry to bring up an old thread, but has this happened again?
I found this thread because I was googling if it was OK to remove that grate in the hopper, as I want to be able to change pellets easier.
I noticed the pellets where not going down as I would like, I've had not flame outs and these are CP's, however they are 2 years old when I had a properly working GMG, but I also stored them in a good plastic bin with a good rubber seal. I just picked up some Lumberjack Char Hickory, and was wanting to scoop out the CP pellets, which led me to this thread. Wondering if this is something I'll need to keep my eye on when I do longer cooks when the weather gets nicer.
