WHAT YOU’LL NEED

 

MODEL: 911050 / 2000 SERIES

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Natural Lump Charcoal

Your BROIL KING KEG® will run on many types of fuel including traditional charcoal briquettes and even wood chunks. But, the KEG works at its best with True ‘Cue100% Natural Hardwood Lump Charcoal (MODEL# TCF5505). Good natural lump charcoal, like True ‘CueBrand, contains no chemicals, additives or fillers. This means your fire burns hotter, cleaner and makes less ash than with charcoal briquettes.

Fire Starter Sticks

The preferred fire starters for your BROIL KING KEG® are True ‘CueMatchtipFirestarters(MODEL#TCF5511).They’llgetthelumpcharcoal going without using lighter fluids - which we don’t recommend.

You’ll find lump charcoal and starter sticks at hardware stores, general merchandise stores, and outdoor product stores where cookout supplies are sold.

Initial ‘Burn-In’

SEASONING YOUR GRILL

Before you start to cook anything on your new BROIL KING KEG®, you first have to “season it” to burn off the coating used to protect your BROIL KING KEG® during shipment. It will also protect the cast iron parts from rusting during normal use.

First remove the grill grate and wash thoroughly in warm, soapy water. Rinse completely and dry with a soft towel.

Apply vegetable shortening to the cast iron cooking grate and top damper, inside and out.

For the final “seasoning” step - fire up your BROIL KING KEG® to about 400°F for about an hour. That’llburn-offany of the protective coating that might still be in the pores of the metal.

WARNING

Always use caution when opening the lid. Carefully ease the lid open just a crack (about one inch) and count to five (1-2-3-4-5)before opening all the way. This allows the heat that has built up inside the grill to escape slowly and prevents a sudden rush of oxygen from causing aflare-up.

Lighting

Step 1:

Set the top and bottom dampers positions to position 5 to let the maximum amount of air in to fuel the fire.

Bottom

Damper

Top

Damper

Step 2:

Open the lid, remove the grilling grate and pour roughly 1.5 pounds of the natural lump charcoal onto the charcoal grate in the bottom of your BROIL KING KEG®

Careful - not too much. The charcoal should cover the charcoal

grate in a slight mound piled not much higher than the fire holes. Important: Do not allow lump charcoal to block or cover the air holes in the firebowl.

As you become more familiar with your KEG, you will quickly get a feel for how much charcoal you need for each type of cooking. Because your BROIL KING KEG® is so efficient, it takes less charcoal than you’re used to using.

WARNING

DO NOT OPERATE OVER 800ºF / 425ºF

Step 3:

Now the starter sticks can be poked into the side of the mound and lit.

Step 4:

After lighting charcoal, allow it to ignite with lid open until any flames go out before closing the lid.

Step 5:

Place grill grate back in place and close lid. Stay close by to adjust dampers to desired cooking temperature.

... and can get extremely hot.

If you are not planning on using the BROIL KING KEG® other than to sear your food, then begin to adjust the dampers down from the “5” position once the temperature hits about 250°F.

OPERATION

MODEL: 911050 / 2000 SERIES

 

 

Controlling Temperature

Our BROIL KING KEG® allows you to control cooking temperature by regulating airflow through the top and bottom dampers. The more you open the dampers, the more air flow through and the hotter the temperature. Small adjustments to the dampers will impact the cooking chamber temperature.

Cooking At Low Temperatures

Forcookingatlowtemperatures-below300°F-managethetemperatureclosely so not to exceed desired cooking temperature when starting the fire. It is important to get the dampers in the 1 position (or lower) before the fire gets too hot, once the lid is closed.

SHUTTING DOWN

When you’re ready to shut down your BROIL KING KEG®, close both dampers to put fire completely out.

STARTING UP AGAIN

When you’re ready to fire up your BROIL KING KEG® the next time, you may still have unused charcoal left. Leave it there, it is still good. And as for the grease left on the grill - cook it off at the beginning of the next use as it will continue to season the grill grate.

Care and Maintenance

Your BROIL KING KEG® will give you many years of great service with a minimum of care. The seasoning process will help preserve the cast iron parts. If at any point you see rust forming, use a steel wire brush to clean the grate and then season it again as described earlier.

When the charcoal ashes finally do pile up, remove them into a metal bucket with the Multi-Tool- only perform this when the grill is cool and charcoal has been extinguished.

Winning Recipes

Low N’ Slow Ribs

Your BROIL KING KEG® excels at making tender,fall-off-the-bone ribs with a minimum of fuss. Load the grill with coals and light a fire starter on top of the mound. When the fire starter is out and the topmost

coals are lit, close the lid. Adjust the dampers to the #1 position when the temperature reads 250°F. Cook the ribs for four hours. Remove the ribs, baste with your favorite sauce and cook for another hour at 250°F. For extra flavor, add a handful of soaked hickory chips to your fire before starting the cook.

Sumptuous Stuffed Peppers

Cooking veggies is fast and easy on your BROIL KING KEG®. The convection currents anddouble-wallinsulation help to maintain a consistent temperature throughout the grill. For this reason, cooking times on both the upper and lower grates will be about the same. It will also be much faster than a traditional grill - so keep an eye on it. Stuff bell peppers with your favorite fixins - we like Italian

sausage, rice and cheese. Place them directly on the grate and bake on 350°F for 20 to 30 minutes.

Ultimate Beer Can Chicken

TheBROIL KING KEG® isperfectly suited for roasting.

Unlike a regular grill, the insulated BROIL KING KEG® cooks evenly and maintains temperature flawlessly. Just get your fire going and adjust

the dampers down when you reach 350°F. Take a half-fullcan of your favorite beer and add a few cloves of garlic and your favorite barbecue rub. Rub down your bird, being sure to get plenty inside of the cavity. Stand the chicken up on the can by placing the open end into the cavity. Place the chicken standing up on the grill and roast until the internal temperature reaches 165°F. For extra flavor, add a handful of soaked pecan chips to your fire before starting the cook.

Perfect Pizzas

Baking on the BROIL KING KEG® will take your cooking to a whole new level - making you the envy of the neighborhood. The upper grate gives you a little more distance from the fire and is perfect for baking. When making pizza, we like to use 12” diameter pizza stone. Place the stone on the upper grate of your BROIL KING KEG® andpre-heat

to 400°F. Use fresh dough and load it up with your favorite toppings. Place your pizza on a sheet of baker’s parchment paper - this will ensure results. Bake on top of the pizza stone for 10 to 15 minutes.

The Perfect Steak Grilling Guide

For the perfect medium rare 1" thick New York Strip, follow these simple instructions.

Marinate steak for 1 hour at room temperature or up to 24 hours in the refrigerator. If refrigerating, bring steak close to room temperature a half hour before grilling for more even cooking. Preheat grill on MEDIUM/HIGH. Brush grids with olive oil and proceed as directed.

NOTE: Bone in cuts take slightly longer. Times may be affected by wind, outdoor temperature, and thickness or temperature of meat prior to cooking.
