2.Turn ON gas supply to grill.

3.With the grill lid open, push and turn the rotisserie control knob counterclockwise to ON.

4.Push and hold the ignitor button until the rotisserie burner ignites.

Attention: When igniting the rotisserie burner, hold rotisserie control knob in for 30 seconds in order to energize the thermocouple.

5.If rotisserie burner does not ignite, turn rotisserie control knob

clockwiseto the OFF position.Turn OFF gas supply to grill. Refer to Troubleshooting section in this manual.

Beforerotisseriecookingyouwillneedtoremovethewarmingrack and the Cooking Grids from your grill. When Rotisserie Cooking you can place a Cooking pan under the food to be cooked.This will capture the drippings and keep your grill clean of excess grease which could cause a fire. Use caution when moving a cooking pan containing hot oils.

The Rotisserie Motor is rated to turn a maximum load of 12 pounds.

Warnings:

Never use the Rotisserie Motor in the rain, and never use it if it has become wet.

Always use a grounded three-prongoutlet and athree-prongextension cord to energize the Rotisserie Motor.

Never alter or remove the grounding prong on the Rotisserie Power Cord, as an electric shock hazard would then result.

Never permit an electrical supply cord or gas supply line to contact any heated surface of this grill.

WARNING

The Rotisserie Motor must be electrically grounded in accordance with local codes or, in the absence of local codes, with the National Electric Code,ANSI/NFPA70. Keep the Rotisserie Motor electric cord away from the heated surface of the grill. Do not operate the Rotisseriewithadamagedcordorplug,oriftheRotisseriemalfunctionsorhasbeendamagedinanymanner.CalltheCustomerService for replacement. The power supply cord has a 3-pronggrounded plug. For your personal safety do not remove the grounding prong.Itmustbepluggedintoamating3-pronggroundingtypereceptacle,grounded in accordance with the National Electrical Codes and local codes and ordinances. If an extension cord is used, it must be properly grounded and suitable for use with Outdoor Appliances. Keep the extension cord connection dry, off of the ground and out of the reach of children. When the Rotisserie Motor is not in use, remove and store in a dry area.

Rotisserie Use

Warning: Do not operate the side burner option simultaneously with the rotisserie. The side burner will melt the rotisserie handle.

Secure meat firmly to the spit rod with meat holders (It may be necessary to tie fowl and rolled roasts to retain their shape for even rotation). To ensure proper rotation, it is important to adequately balance and fasten the meat or fowl onto the spit rod.

Before heating the grill, rotate the spit rod and meat manually a few times. If out of balance, attach the counterbalance assembly to the spit to even out the weight and rotate again.

During cooking, adjust the meat holders if the meat shrinks and pulls away from the spit rod. Use gloves and caution to prevent burns.

Becertainthattherotisseriebracketsandmotoraresecuredinplace, then light the burner and close the grill lid for preheating.

After preheating, place the loaded spit rod into position. Start the rotisserie motor and make certain the food is properly balanced. Close the grill lid.

Note: Beef and pork roasts and certain types of fowl will release a considerable amount of fat and juice in the process of cooking and are therefore “self-basting.”Lean meat and chicken will taste better if basted occasionally with melted butter, margarine, salad oil, barbeque sauce or a sauce of your own preference.

The exact degree of “doneness” can be determined by the use of a meat thermometer.

OPERATION (cont.)

Before Cooking

Beforecookingonagrillforthefirsttime,itshouldbe“burnedoff” to remove any oil residue from the manufacturing process.

1.Raise the grill lid.

2.Light grill burners.

3.Burn on HI for ten minutes.

4.Close the lid and burn on HI for an additional ten minutes.

5.Turn OFF gas. The grill is now ready for use.

Preheating

Before cooking on a gas grill, allow the grill to preheat on HI for 5 minutes with the lid closed.

This uses very little fuel and provides better flavor.

Electrical Accessories

If an electrical accessory (e.g. rotisserie) is used on your grill, the accessory must be electrically grounded in accordance with local codes, or in the absence of local codes, with the National Electric Code,ANSI/NFPA70. In Canada, the electrical accessory must be electrically grounded in accordance with the applicable section of the current Canadian Electrical Code, CSA C22.1.

Any electrical accessory should be equipped with a three-prong(grounding) plug, and plugged into a properly grounded threeprongreceptacleorwalloutlet.Donotcutorremovethegrounding prong from the plug.

If an extension cord is required, use only a three-prongcord and plug into a properly grounded receptacle as described above.

Do not expose an electrical accessory to water. Avoid using any electrical accessory in wet weather as it may present a shock hazard.

Keep any electrical cord and fuel supply hose away from all heated surfaces.

MAINTENANCE

Cleaning the Grill

Caution: To prevent injury, do not clean a hot grill.

Note:Donotuseacommercialcleaneronthecookinggrids.Do not brush grids while they are hot. Do not scrape grids.

For baked on residue use a BRASS (NOT STEEL) brush on the cooking grids and other components.

Burn Off

This process is much like that used in self-cleaningovens and is most efficient when completed after each use of the grill.

Caution: Do not open the grill during the burn off process. Opening the grill during the burn off process may cause a sudden grease fire flare up that could burn your face and arms. Wait until the grill has cooled before opening.

1.Turn control knobs to HI. Close lid and allow the grill to burn for ten minutes, or until no smoke is present. Do not allow the grill to burn for more than 30 minutes.

2.Turn control knobs and gas supply to OFF and allow the grill to cool.

3.Wipe COOL grill with a damp cloth to remove soot.

Grill Bottom

Periodically remove cooking grids and flame tamers to clean the interior of the grill. Scrape off baked on residue with a putty knife or brass brush and rinse with water. Clean the bottom air holes with a small knife.

Burner Maintenance

Stainlesssteelburnersoftenturnreddishbrownafteruse.Thisdoes not effect the performance of the grill. When cleaning the interior of the grill, remove the burners and clean with a brass brush. Wash with water and a mild detergent.

Electrode Position

Igniter electrode tips need to be placed about 1/8” from the burner surface in order to work properly. Adjust accordingly if it is misaligned. See Figure 20.

Grease Tray

Empty periodically.

Exterior

Clean regularly with a solution of mild detergent and hot water. Superb by Broilmaster®protective covers are recommended. Stain-lesssteelcomponentscanbeeasilycleanedwithaspray-onstainlesssteel cleaner found in most hardware stores.

Venturi Tubes

The venturi tubes allow air and gas to mix prior to burning, thus ensuring an efficient flame. Spiders or other small insects may build webs or nests inside the tubes obstructing air flow. Fire, or flashback, can occur, in and/or around obstructed venturi tubes and can cause damage to components beneath the grill or an unsafe condition. TO reduce risk, inspections and cleaning should be performed at least twice monthly when spiders are active. If the grill has been unused for an extended period of time inspect the tubes before using the grill.

Clean Rotisserie burner and venturi tubes as follows:

1.Remove rotisserie burner back cover (5 Phillips screws - 4 on the back and 1 on the inside top).

2.Use a small flexible brush to remove any debris from the venturi tubes (interior of burners).

3.Replace rotisserie burner back cover.
