We got a Vent-a-Hood for the Bluestar.  Really need to install it.  It’s rated for I think 1200cfm, at the outlet in the roof.  The way most hoods are rated it would be more like 1800cfm.

Do you want to get shot? 'cause that's a damn good way to get yourself shot.

I would advise looking for an owner's manual for it and seeing if it was actually designed that way (I can't believe that it was) or if something was left out.

I can't imagine why anyone would even bother to put in a recirculator vent hood without a charcoal filter and a grease screen.
I recall the manual said which filters to get, but it didn't come with any.  I should still have the manual.  I may have to look it up and order a set. 
I thought it was just a paper filter.  A charcoal filter that absorbs the smoke/grease would be good.  Maybe it wouldn't set off my smoke alarm so easily.   =)

That's exactly what the charcoal filter is for, to absorb smoke and odors.

I don't use my range hood all that often, but I decidedly do when I'm searing meat or anything that might get a smokey.
