What Is a Small Cavity Hopper Insert?

The Small Cavity Hopper Insert is a black, rectangular metal funnel that helps pellets flow into your grill's auger. This hopper insert prevents tunneling, which is when pellets gather on the hopper's sides instead of going into the auger. Tunneling occurs in smaller grills, and it can lead to issues, such as a Low Error Reading message and an inability to maintain set temperatures.
