5 of 5 Sad I waited to install it on my 5D November 21, 2022
Reviewer: Dan Halverson from DeKalb, IL United States  
I ordered a 5D back in June and was just using the wood chunks in the smoker.  I'm doing 150 pounds of snack sticks that require a no-smoke drying stage, so I installed the Bella.  WOW!!!  The smoke control and volume is so much better than just the chunks.  Once the smoke is started (about 3 minutes) I have the air pump at it's lowest setting and it's perfect.

5 of 5 5 starts is not Enough February 27, 2022
Reviewer: Jon M. from Rockport, TX  
I’m not a person that writes reviews but I had to on this one. I built my own 4x8 smoke house that I would build a fire in in a stainless steel box and cover it leaving just enough gap for it to smolder. It never worked right and was nothing but a hassle but it did the job. I was buying some accessories for my Smokin-It smoker and stumbled across this smoke generator. I thought we’ll I am beyond pleased with my smoker and accessories let’s give this a try. I hooked it up the day it arrived to my home made smoke house. Some friends and I got together and made a batch of sausage and put this thing to work. It worked so well I had to turn the pump down half way which saves pellets. I am beyond pleased with this smoke generator as I am with all my Smokin-It products.

Reviewer: Steven Blair from Franktown, CO United States  
Hey pellet smokers, you want more smoke. Install Bella’s cold smoke generator by Smokin-It. It can be used for hot or cold smoking. I fill it with a 50/50 blend of pellets & wood chips. The results have been outstanding with a much deeper, richer smoke flavor. Customer service was excellent. I talked directly with owner, ordered it & received it in a timely manner. I highly recommend this product.

5 of 5 the Bella cold smoke generator March 3, 2021
Reviewer: Chance  
I ordered one for the smoker I was building, it's rather big, so big I can put a Smoke Vault into it. Seeing the amount of smoke generated, that's what I want!. installed easy, performed perfectly. It was me who wasn't thinking clearly. I was smoking Bacon sausage in 25 below zero  ( just happy it wasn't snowing ) after I took the pump in, while it unthawed, all the fuild came out. Bummed... I called Smokin-it only to inquire if  could refill it. That wasn't gonna happen, what happened was I received 25 feet of black hose to keep the Bella warm. Now I find out a new Bella is on it's way. Smokin-it went far & above customer satisfaction. I wasn't expecting that.
In closing I want to say  Thank you and hopefully others don't do what I did in my desire for Bacon sausage

5 of 5 Cold Smoke Awesomeness December 3, 2020
Reviewer: Joshua Hoffman from Richardson, TX United States  
Purchased just before thanksgiving. I was always trying for more smoke flavor and no matter chips, chunks, pellets, dust, I was not able to get to my preference on Brisket and other meats. Now I am in control of the smoke. I get as much smoke as I want when I want it. I have made a couple of turkeys, I am smoking cheese and butter as I write this. Temp in smoker is 60, outside temp is 45. Smoke generator going full blast with both sides lit.

Drilling the hole in the door:
I drilled the pilot hole slow, with lubricating oil, and stepping up bit size until I could get my unibit in. I used a unibit on one side and a hole saw on the other to see which worked best. They performed equally well.

If you do not already own these, just by the pre drilled door. Stainless may cost you more in time and bits than if you just buy the door if you are not patient. My hole saw kit was $35 when I bought it, Unibit that goes to 1" was $30 for a quality bit back when I purchased.

5 of 5 Epic Cold Smoke Generator October 29, 2020
Reviewer: Steve B  
I own a REC TEQ Bull (RT 700) pellet smoker with the optional side smoke box.  I purchased the Bella for a couple reasons: 1) I wanted to do a true cold smoke with the grill off (for cheese, etc) and 2) the RT Bull does not produce smoke when its set over 225-250 degrees.  

I have tried the Bella a couple times and have been very impressed with the cold smoke output.  I cranked my main grill to well over 500 and was able to get great smoke in the side box at the same time... the best of both worlds.  The only mod I made to the Bella was to add 2x 303 stainless steel thumb screws (M4-0.7) to the bottom door so I don't have to use a screwdriver to clean it out.

Awesome product guys!

5 of 5 The Holy Grail of Smoke Generators August 4, 2020
Reviewer: Mike Stalling from Overland Park, KS United States  
I bought this to replace my failed Bradley smoke generator.  Less expensive and cheaper smoking fuel than the Bradley pucks.  Installed it to my bradley 4 rack box with a custom adapter and all I can say is that I don't think I was ever really smoking food before I installed this.  I know I will be able to get a smoke ring on any meat and the smoke is completely adjustable to boot!  This was the best thing I've bought in a long time.  I can't wait to do some ribs next.  Thanks Smokin' it for a great product.
