Since the pellet hopper stores the pellet fuel used by your pellet grill, it is imperative that you have a hopper that:
Holds enough pellets to complete long cooks without having to refill the pellet hopper; and
Is properly engineered to feed all of the pellets into the auger system.

Many pellet hoppers have a flat bottom and will let the auger "run dry" long before the hopper is empty.
