    I have a GMG Daniel Boone, I want to improve the smoke taste in my food as well as level out temperatures across the grill from left to right.  I am ordering a Don Godke Downdraft kit.  Has anyone installed one of these on their pellet grill and if so, how do you like it?

    Some folks add a hunk of flex duct to the exhaust, to accomplish the same thing....

    I use a 90 degree aluminum 3" elbow (I'm not sure if that was what Dave was referring to or not).  $3 for the elbow vs $80 for a Godke or Hurd downdraft.  You can see it in the picture below.

    Rather than a downdraft I use an extension to take the exhaust from the left side, like a reverse flow cooker.
