Thank you sirSafety. But who lets their kids get anywhere near the grill? I took mine out and have had no issues. I did leave it in on my vertical smoker and just use a broom stick to push them around but will probably eventually remove it as well. It is just there as a safety measure to keep someone from getting fingers stuck in the auger while turning. Common sense says no one would do that but if they did not put it there then someone could sue them if they lost a finger.
Now on my 2nd pit boss, took the screen out of both. More govt. safety BS.What is the purpose of the hopper screen does anyone know. I was wonder I was thinking about taking it out so I can push pellets if I need to & don’t have to use a stick.thanks
I wasn’t sure what it was for I didn’t know if it would mess up the feed of the pellets thanks for your responseNow on my 2nd pit boss, took the screen out of both. More govt. safety BS.
