Use and Care of Your Smoker

Before first use of smoker:

Refer to Cooking Guide for important instructions before first use.

Remove all packaging and sale labels from the smoker. Do not use sharp tools to remove stickers.

Wash cooking baskets and half racks with warm soapy water,

rinse and dry throughly.

Before each use of smoker:

Use smoker only on a firm and level surface to prevent tipping over. Not for use on table tops or other elevated surfaces.

To prevent household circuit breakers from tripping, keep electric controller dry and do not use other electrical products on the same circuit.

Check grease tray to make sure it is empty and is properly installed.

For stick-freecooking, apply a thorough coating of vegetable oil or vegetable oil based spray to the cooking baskets and

racks.

Turn smoker on:

Plug power supply cord into a properly grounded, GFI protected outlet. If extension cord must be used, refer to “Extension Cord Use and Safety” on page 3.

Press the Power Button. Follow instructions in Cooking Guide.

Extension Cord Use and Safety

For best smoker performance, use of extension cord is not recommended.

If you must use an extension cord, for your safety:

Use only outdoor type with 3 prong grounding plug, rated for 15 amperes or more, approved by UL, marked with a W-Aand a tag stating “Suitable for Use with Outdoor Appliance”.

Use the shortest length extension cord required. Do not connect 2 or more extension cords together. A 12 or 14 gauge extension cord of 50 ft. or less is acceptable.

Keep connections dry and off ground.

Do not let cord hang over edge of table top or other items where it can be pulled by children or tripped over.

Ground Fault Interrupter

•Since 1971 the National Electric Code (NEC) has required Ground Fault Interrupter devices on all outdoor circuits.

•If your residence was built before 1971, check with a qualified electrician to determine if a Ground Fault Interrupter protector exists.

•Do not use this smoker if the circuit does not have GFI protection.

•Do not plug this smoker into an indoor circuit.

WARNING

Use care when operating your smoker. Be sure you read and understand all the information and safeguards in this product guide before operating this smoker.

NOTE: Before cooking on your Smoker for the first time, refer to the separate Cooking Guide on how to prepare the Smoker for cooking. It is recommended that you season your Smoker prior to cooking.

Once seasoning is complete, the Smoker is ready for use. The cooking chamber will continue to darken with use. This will inhibit rusting along with improving the performance of the infrared cooking system.

Controlling grease fires:

To aid in controlling grease fires use the following precautions:

Keep smoker free from grease; chance of fire is greatly increased by grease buildup.

Trim excess fat off meat and use less fatty cuts of meat to reduce chance of grease fires.

If flare-upoccurs during cooking reduce controller setting.

If flare-upcontinues turn controllerOFF and unplug the power cord.

Grease Tray

Never use drippings directly from the grease tray to make gravy. Use the included foil tray liner to catch drippings, then reheat the drippings to kill bacteria. Replacement foil tray liners and other accessories can be found at www.charbroil.com.

Use extreme caution when removing tray or disposing of hot grease.

Safety Tips

The grease tray must be inserted into smoker and emptied after each use.

If you have a smoker problem see the "Troubleshooting Section".

Clean smoker often, preferably after each cookout. If a bristle brush is used to clean any of the smoker cooking surfaces, ensure no loose bristles remain on cooking surfaces prior to cooking. It is not recommended to clean cooking surfaces while smoker is hot.

Do not clean with metal scouring pads. Pieces can break off the pad and touch electrical parts, creating a risk of electric shock. When removed from the unit, the roasting basket may

General Smoker Cleaning

Meat Thermometer: Do not immerse or soak in water. Wash with warm soapy water and wipe dry.

Do not mistake brown or black accumulation of grease and smoke for paint. Interiors surfaces should not be painted. Apply a strong solution of detergent and water or use a grill cleaner with scrub brush on insides of smoker lid and bottom. Rinse and allow to completely air dry. Do not apply a caustic grill/oven cleaner to painted surfaces. A black surface improves the smokers performance.

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

Painted surfaces: Wash with mild detergent ornon-abrasivecleaner and warm soapy water. Wipe dry with a soft nonabrasive cloth.

Stainless steel surfaces: To maintain the high quality appearance, wash with mild detergent and warm soapy water and wipe dry with a soft cloth after each use.Baked-ongrease deposits may require the use of an abrasive plastic cleaning pad. Use only in direction of brushed finish to avoid damage.

CAUTION

Do not use sharp or pointed tools to clean smoker.

Do not use abrasive oven cleaners, steel wool or metal brushes to clean smoker body. They will damage the finish.

Replace damaged part(s) only with Char-Broilcertified replacement parts. Do not attempt to repair damaged parts.

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 1-888-MPHOTLINE(888-674-6854)In Washington, DC

Or E-mail: mphotline.fsis@usda.gov

How To Tell If Meat Is Cooked Thoroughly

Meat and poultry cooked in 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.

Use a meat thermometer to ensure proper internal food temperatures.
