USE AND CARE

DANGER

NEVER store a spare LP cylinder under or near the appliance or in an enclosed area.

Never fill a cylinder beyond 80% full.

An over filled or improperly stored cylinder is a hazard due to possible gas release from the safety relief valve. This could cause an intense fire with risk of property damage, serious injury or death.

If you see, smell or hear gas escaping, immediately get away from the LP cylinder/appliance and call your fire department.

Keep LP tank at a minimum distance of 24” (inches) away from appliance at all times.

LP Cylinder Removal, Transport and Storage

Turn OFF control knob and LP cylinder valve. Turn coupling nut counterclockwise by hand only - do not use tools to disconnect. Install safety cap onto LP cylinder valve. Always

use cap and strap supplied with valve. Failure to use safety

cap as directed may result in serious personal injury

and/or property damage.

LP (Liquefied Petroleum Gas)

LP gas is nontoxic, odorless and colorless when produced. For Your Safety, LP gas has been given an odor (similar to rotten cabbage) so that it can be smelled.

LP gas is highly flammable and may ignite unexpectedly when mixed with air.

• A disconnected LP cylinder in

storage or being transported

must have a safety cap installed (as shown). Do not store an LP cylinder in enclosed spaces

such as a carport, garage, porch, covered

patio or other building. Never leave an LP cylinder inside a vehicle which may become overheated by the sun.

• Do not store an LP cylinder in an area where children play.

LP Cylinder

The LP cylinder used with your appliance must meet the following requirements:

Use LP cylinders only with these required measurements: 12" (30.5cm) (diameter) x 18" (45.7 cm) (tall) with 20 lb. (9 kg.) capacity maximum.

LP cylinders must be constructed and marked in accordance with specifications for LP cylinders of the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) or the National Standard of Canada, CAN/CSA-339,Cylinders, Spheres and Tubes for Transportation of Dangerous Goods; and commission, as applicable. See LP cylinder collar for marking.

LP cylinder valve must have:

• Type 1 outlet compatible with

regulator or Oil-LessTurkey Fryer.

• Safety relief valve.

• UL listed Overfill Protection

OPD Hand Wheel

Device (OPD). This OPD safety

feature is identified by a unique triangular hand wheel. Use

only LP cylinders equipped with this type of valve.

LP cylinder must be arranged for vapor withdrawal and include collar to protect LP cylinder valve. Always keep LP cylinders in upright position during use, transit or storage.

LP Cylinder Filling

Use only licensed and experienced dealers.

LP dealer must purge new cylinder before filling.

Dealer should NEVER fill LP cylinder more than 80% of LP cylinder volume. Volume of propane in cylinder will vary by temperature.

A frosty regulator indicates gas overfill. Immediately close LP cylinder valve and call local LP gas dealer for assistance.

Do not release liquid propane (LP) gas into the atmosphere. This is a hazardous practice.

To remove gas from LP cylinder, contact an LP dealer or call a local fire department for assistance. Check the telephone directory under “Gas Companies” for nearest certified LP dealers.

CAUTION

SPIDER ALERT!

SPIDER AND WEBS

INSIDE BURNER TUBE

If you notice that your grill is getting hard to light or that the flame isn’t as strong as it should be, take the time to check and clean the venturi’s.

VALVE

SPIDER WEBS

CONTROL PANEL

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.

Cleaning the Burner Assembly

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

1.Turn gas off at control knob and LP cylinder and disengage regulator from cylinder.

2.Remove top cover, cooking basket and inner liner, shown A. This will expose the burner tube from inside, shownB.

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

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

5.Disconnect electrode wire underneath appliance, shown C.

6.Remove screws and disengage control panel assembly from unit, shown D.

Cleaning the Burner Assembly (Continued)

7.Clean inner burner as recommended below, shown E. We suggest three ways to clean the burner tube. Use the one easiest for you.

(A)Bend a stiff wire (a light weight coat hanger works well) into a small hook. Run hook through 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 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.

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.

9.Attach electrode to burner.

10.Carefully replace control panel assembly .

VERY IMPORTANT: Burner tube must re-engageover valve

opening. See illustration, shown F.

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 and poultry.

Separate: Separate raw meats and poultry fromready-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.

For more information call: USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline at 1-800-535-4555In Washington, DC (202)720-3333,10:00 am- 4:00 pm EST.

Grease Tray

• Never use drippings from grease tray.

How To Tell If Meat Is Cooked Thoroughly

Meat and poultry cooked on the appliance often browns very fast on the outside. Use only thawed meat and a meat thermometer to be sure food has reached a safe internal temperature, and cut into food to check for visual signs of doneness.

We recommend food to be at least 40°F before cooking in your appliance.

Whole poultry should reach 165° F. Juices should run clear and flesh should not be pink.

Beef, veal and lamb steaks, roasts and pork chops can be cooked to 160° F.

NEVER partially cook meat or poultry and finish cooking later. Cook food completely to destroy harmful bacteria.

Storing Your Appliance

Clean cooking basket.

Store in dry location.

When LP cylinder is connected to appliance, store outdoors in a well-ventilatedspace and out of reach of children.

If Regulator is disconnected from the LP cylinder, a hook is provided to hang Regulator from the handle as shown.

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

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

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