Installation Safety Precautions

Use grill, as purchased, only with LP (propane) gas and the regulator/valve assembly supplied. If your grill is Dual Fuel ready, a conversion kit must be purchased for use with natural gas.

Grill installation must conform with local codes, or in their absence of local codes, with either the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1/ NFPA 54, Natural Gas and Propane Installation Code, CSA B149.1, or Propane Storage and Handling Code, B149.2.

All electrical accessories (such as rotisserie) must be electrically grounded in accordance with local codes, or

National Electrical Code, ANSI / NFPA 70 or Canadian Electrical Code, CSA C22.1. Keep any electrical cords and/or fuel supply hoses away from any hot surfaces.

This grill is safety certified for use in the United States and/or Canada only. Do not modify for use in any other location. Modification will result in a safety hazard.

WARNING

Do not attempt to repair or alter the hose/valve/regulator for any “assumed” defect. Any modification to this assembly will void your warranty and create the risk of a gas leak and fire. Use only authorized replacement parts supplied by manufacturer.

NOTE: DO NOT over tighten screws and washers that come into contact with porcelain coated surfaces. Over tightening may cause the porcelain coating to crack and break, resulting in exposed metal that will be prone to rust.

GRILLING GUIDE – Getting Started

First Time Use

Read your Assembly Manual and ensure the grill is put together properly. Remove all Point-of-Purchaseadvertising material from all grill surfaces before first use. We recommend operating your grill on its highest setting for15-20minutes prior to your first use. This aids in removing the oils used during manufacturing.

Lava Rock / Briquettes

This gas grill has been designed, engineered, and tested to be used with flame tamers or heat distribution plates to provide more even heating, improve the cleaning process, and reduce flare-ups.The addition of after market lava rocks, charcoal, or briquettes of any type will cause poor combustion and increase the likelihood of a grease fire, and is not recommended. Using briquettes, lava rock, or charcoal in this grill will void your warranty. For extra smoke flavor, we recommend using a smoker box with wood chips.

Temperature - Convective Grills ONLY.

The temperature gauge in the hood of your new grill measures air temperature. The air temperature inside your grill will never be as hot as the temperature at the cooking surface.

Note: Since 1995, all regulators (the part that attaches to the gas tank to regulate the flow of gas) have included a safety feature that restricts gas flow in the event of a gas leak. You can inadvertently activate this safety feature without having a gas leak. This typically occurs when you turn on the gas using the grill control knob before you turn on the LP tank valve. If the gas regulator safety feature activates, the grill will only reach temperatures between 250°F and 300°F even with all burners on the high setting.

Regulator

Coupling Nut

If your grill is not getting hotter than 250°F to 300°F these

steps should be taken first to reset the gas regulator safety

device:

1.Open the grill lid.

2.Turn off all knobs on the control panel in front.

3.Turn off the tank knob.

4.Disconnect the regulator from the LP tank.

5.Wait 30 seconds.

6.Reconnect the regulator to the LP tank.

7.Slowly open the LP tank knob all the way. Do not put excessive force on the valve at the full open position to avoid damaging the valve.

8.Turn on the appropriate control knob and light the grill per the instructions on the control panel.

An illustration of this process is included in this Product Guide. See Troubleshooting section for additional information.

Pre-HeatingYour Grill

Just like your home oven, your grill should be pre-heatedto provide optimum performance.Pre-heatthe grill on high for 1015 minutes – longer if weather conditions require. Please refer to the lighting instructions inside the Product Guide if you have questions about how to light your grill. Amatch-lightchain and hole is provided for your convenience.

GRILLING GUIDE – Grilling 101

Outdoor grilling is really quite simple. You'll succeed with burgers, dogs, or steaks usually on your very first try. With experience, you will learn how to work with your grill, creating more imaginative meals all the time. This knowledge makes up the art of grilling. Before you start grilling, organize your food according to cooking technique and required cooking time, and optimize the use of your grilling area.

Direct Cooking

Direct cooking involves grilling your meat directly over high heat. It is perfect for searing steaks, chops, and other smaller pieces of meat and vegetables that quickly make their way to the table.

Indirect Cooking

Indirect cooking utilizes select burners to circulate heat throughout the grill, without direct contact between the meat and the flame. The meat is placed over the burner that is 'off'. This method is generally used to slow cook large cuts of meat and poultry. A pan can be placed underneath the meat to catch grease and food drippings, and helps minimize clean-up.

Rotisserie Cooking

Rotisserie cooking is best for 'round' meat, such as large roasts, whole poultry, and pork. It generally requires an accessory motor and spit rod that allows the meat to be turned at a constant speed. Rotisserie cooking is best done in front of a special rotisserie burner, or utilizing an indirect cooking burner arrangement. A pan can be placed underneath the meat to catch grease and food drippings, and helps minimize clean-up.

Food Safety

Food safety is a very important part of enjoying the outdoor cooking experience. To keep food safe from harmful bacteria, follow these four basic steps:

Clean: Wash hands, utensils, and surfaces with hot soapy water before and after handling raw meat.

Separate: Separate raw meats from ready-to-eatfoods to avoid cross contamination. Use a clean platter and utensils when removing cooked foods.

Cook: Cook meat and poultry thoroughly to kill bacteria. Use a thermometer to ensure proper internal food temperatures. Chill: Refrigerate prepared foods and leftovers promptly.

GRILLING GUIDE – Tips & Tricks

Cooking on your new grill is a hands-onexperience, and it is recommended to remain outside with your grill while cooking. Grilling can be affected by many external conditions. In cold weather, you will need more heat to reach an ideal cooking temperature, and grilling may take longer. The meat's internal temperature and thickness can also affect cooking times. Cold and thicker meats will take longer to cook.

Internal Meat Temperatures

Meat cooked on a grill often browns very fast on the outside. Therefore, use a meat thermometer to ensure it has reached safe internal temperatures.

USDA Recommended Safe Minimum

Internal Temperatures

Beef, Veal, Lamb, Steak, Roasts, & Whole Pork

Turkey, Chicken & Duck-Whole,Pieces & Ground

165° F

Please refer to the USDA for complete, up-to-dateinformation. Our internal temperature chart is based on USDA standards for meat doneness. Check it out atwww.isitdoneyet.gov

Sauces

Sauces containing sugars and fats can cause flare-ups,and your food may burn. In general, apply these sauces during the final 10 minutes of cooking. Keep in mind, use of excessive sauces or glazes will also require extra cleaning afterwards.

Marinades and Rubs

To enhance the flavor of grilled foods, a liquid marinade or dry rub can be used prior to cooking. Meat can be either soaked or injected with liquid marinade up to 24 hours prior to grilling. Dry rubs can be applied directly to the meat immediately before grilling.

Wood Chips

For extra smoke flavor when grilling, try adding wood chips. Soak the chips in water for approximately 30 minutes before adding to a smoke box or pan. Place smoke box or pan on top of the cooking grate above the flame. Turn grill on high until the wood starts to smoke. Reduce heat to desired temperature for cooking, and place food on cooking grate as desired. Close lid to retain more smoke. Hardwood varieties that work particularly well with grilled foods include Alder, Apple, Cherry, Grapevines, Hickory, Mesquite, Oak, Rosemary and Sassafras.

Skewers

Metal skewers should be flat, with long handles. Round skewers allow food to roll when turned, so it may not cook as evenly. Use metal skewers when cooking meat kabobs. Wooden skewers should be soaked in water for an hour before use, and are best used for quick cooking foods such as vegetables and fruits.

Utensils

Use tongs or a spatula to handle the food instead of a fork, and don't turn the food too

often. Piercing the food with a fork will release juices that you want in the meat, and may cause flare-ups.

GRILLING GUIDE – Cleaning Your Grill

Why Clean?

We've all heard the saying 'An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure'. This is great advice when it comes to keeping your grill clean.

Routine Care

Periodic cleaning of this grill is necessary, as grill fires can occur when grease and food debris collect in the bottom of the grill. After each use, remove any remaining food particles from the cooking grate and inside of the grill using a grill brush. Do this after the grill has cooled down, yet is still warm. It is much easier to clean food particles while warmth is still present, than after the food particles have completely cooled and hardened. This grill is not designed to be 'burned off' by closing the lid and turning the burners on High for an extended time. The excessive heat generated can cause leftover grease to catch fire, and can cause permanent damage to your grill.

General Cleaning

Plastic parts: Wash with warm soapy water and wipe dry. Do not use abrasive cleaners, degreasers or a concentrated grill cleaner on plastic parts. Damage to and failure of parts can result.

Porcelain surfaces: Because of glass-likecomposition, most residue can be wiped away with baking soda/water solution or glass cleaner. Usenon-abrasivescouring powder for stubborn stains.

Painted surfaces: Wash with mild detergent or non-abrasivecleaner and warm water. Wipe dry with a softnon-abrasivecloth.

Stainless steel surfaces: Stainless steel can rust under certain conditions. This can be caused by environmental conditions such as chlorine or salt water, or improper

cleaning tools such as wire or steel wool. It can also discolor due to heat, chemicals, or grease build-up.To maintain your grill's high quality appearance, wash with mild detergent and warm water, or use a stainless steel grill cleaner.Baked-ongrease deposits may require the use of an abrasive plastic cleaning pad. Use only in direction of brushed finish to avoid damage. Do not use abrasive pad on areas with graphics.

Cooking surfaces: If a bristle brush is used to clean any of the grill cooking surfaces, ensure no loose bristles remain on cooking surfaces prior to grilling. It is not recommended to clean cooking surfaces while grill is hot.

Storing Your Grill

Clean cooking grates.

Store grill in dry location.

When LP cylinder is connected to grill, store outdoors in a well ventilated space and out of reach of children.

Cover grill if stored outdoors. Choose from a variety of grill covers offered by manufacturer.

Store grill indoors ONLY if LP cylinder is turned off, disconnected, and removed from grill. Never store LP cylinder indoors.

When removing grill from storage, follow the 'Cleaning the Burner Assembly' instructions in the Use and Care section of the Product Guide.

Critters

Spiders like to make their homes in the venturi tubes of grills. These must be inspected and cleaned regularly to ensure there are no blockages. Refer to the Use and Care portion of this Product Guide for complete information.

INSIDE VENTURI

BURNER

In some areas of the country, spiders or small insects have been known to create “flashback” problems. The spiders spin webs, build nests and lay eggs in the grill’s venturi tube(s) obstructing the flow of gas to the burner. The backed-upgas can ignite in the venturi behind the control panel. This is known as a flashback and it can damage your grill and even cause injury.

To prevent flashbacks and ensure good performance the burner and venturi assembly should be removed from the grill and cleaned before use whenever the grill has been idle for an extended period.

Storing Your Grill

Clean cooking grates.

Store in dry location.

When LP cylinder is connected to grill, store outdoors in a wellventilated space and out of reach of children.

Cover grill if stored outdoors. Choose from a variety of grill covers offered by manufacturers.

Store grill indoors ONLY if LP cylinder is turned off and disconnected, removed from grill and stored outdoors.

When removing grill from storage, follow “Cleaning the Burner Assembly” instructions before starting grill.

Cleaning the Burner Assembly

Follow these instructions to clean and/or replace parts of burner assembly or if you have trouble igniting grill.

1.Turn gas OFF at control knobs and LP cylinder.

2.Remove cooking grates and flame tamers.

3.Remove carryover tubes and burners.

4.Detach electrode from burner.

NOTE: Removal/Detachment method will depend on the burner configuration. See different configurations in illustrations below.

5.Carefully lift each burner up and away from valve openings. We suggest three ways to clean the burner tubes. Use the one

easiest for you.

(A)Bend a stiff wire (a light weight coat hanger works well) into a small hook. Run the hook through each burner tube several times.

(B)Use a narrow bottle brush with a flexible handle (do not use a brass wire brush), run the brush through each burner tube several times.

(C)Wear eye protection: Use an air hose to force air into the burner tube and out the burner ports. Check each port to make sure air comes out each hole.

6.Wire brush entire outer surface of burner to remove food residue and dirt.

7.Clean any blocked ports with a stiff wire such as an open paper clip.

8.Check burner for damage, due to normal wear and corrosion some holes may become enlarged. If any large cracks or holes are found replace burner.

VERY IMPORTANT: Burner tubes must reengage valve openings. See illustrations at right.

Correct

9. Attach electrode to burner.

10.Carefully replace burners.

11.Attach burners to brackets on firebox.

12.Reposition carryover tubes and attach to burners. Replace flame tamers and cooking grates.
