Hi, thanks for the info! I am replying mainly because the second link for the YS640 pellet diagram won't download. The text says it's for the 480 but you hover over and it says 640 for the link. But then the link gets a 404 error.

I'm doing a built-in on the 640 and was planning on removing the cart and setting the unit on a concrete countertop with a cutout underneath. But I would like the diagram so I know what sort of clearances to allow for.

One more question. The current design of the smoker's counter area doesn't have any accommodation for the handle for the baffle. Would it be possible to just completely remove the handle so I can adjust the baffle from inside the grill? The way the outdoor kitchen countertop is designed, we wanted the smoker's cook surface to be level with the concrete counter on the right hand side. But that made it where the baffle can't be pulled open.

If the baffle handle can't be removed and is a hard requirement, then I'll need to figure out some other way of making clearance for it. So for that part, it would be good to get the fully extended distance that the handle can travel.

Thanks so much!!

Here are the responses that I received from the owner of the Company:

But then the link gets a 404 error. It’s simply the countertop drawing, what it doesn’t show is a pair of cross members that can be angle iron, or square tube, these members to be inside of the countertop cutout for the cooker to sit on. The only consideration is the grease drain tube.
