Set the multilevel cooking grids FIGURE 17.

Installing Char-Master

Briquets

Individually place the ‘Char-Master’briquets in a single layer evenly on your grill’s briquet rack; DO NOT dump them onto the briquet rack. A single layer of‘Char-Master’briquets is all that’s needed. DO NOT overlap or stack the briquets. See FIGURE 17.

After properly placing the ‘Char-Master’briquets on your grill’s briquet rack, there may be some briquets left over. Save them for future use.

Before cooking, always preheat the grill as directed by the grill’s operating instructions. Hot briquets cause better, quicker cooking and better flavor.

Cleaning

Routine preheating and routine burn-off(also called postheating) of a grill will clean the ‘CharMaster’ briquets. Periodically turn the briquets over while they are cool.

Grid Lifter

Assemble the grid lifter as shown. FIGURE 18.

When positioning or removing grids always use the grid lifter provided with your grill.

Propane Cylinder Safety

Liquid Propane (LP) gas has a long history of safe use when the safety precautions provided in this manual are followed.

FAILURE TO FOLLOW THESE SAFETY PRECAUTIONS COULD RESULT IN A FIRE OR EXPLOSION CAUSING PROPERTY DAMAGE OR PERSONAL INJURY.

Propane gas cylinders should always be handled, stored, and transported with extreme caution in a secured upright position.

Never attempt to use or repair a propane gas cylinder that has been damaged. Never attempt to use or repair a cylinder with a faulty or damaged valve outlet. A cylinder that has been dropped, dented, or otherwise damaged must be replaced.

A propane gas cylinder should never be transported in the passenger area of a vehicle.

Keep cylinders out of direct sunlight and never apply any other source of direct heat to them.

When refilling your cylinder, always insist on a reputable, qualified gas dealer. Your propane gas cylinder is filled by weight, and should never exceed eighty (80%) percent of its weight limit. If the cylinder is not completely empty, the gas dealer must make necessary adjustments to ensure it is not overfilled. Never use an overfilled Propane gas cylinder.

Cylinder Storage

Your grill must be stored outdoors in a well ventilated area if the cylinder is attached to it.

Disconnected cylinders must have a threaded valve plug tightly installed and must not be stored in any building, garage, or other enclosed area.

Flammable materials (gasoline, grill covers, etc.) must not be stored in the cylinder enclosure.

Always store Propane cylinders in a secured upright position, out of the reach of children.

Connection Requirements

GASCONVERSION

Gas Conversion

Propane grills include a conversion kit for natural gas. If you have a natural grill and wish to convert it to propane you will need to purchase the optional conversion kit #CK195.

Begin by removing all the components from the inside of your grill. Locate and remove the orifice hoods mounted on the underside of the grill body. FIGURE 20.

HOSE AND

 

REGULATOR

ORIFICE HOOD

SUPPLY TUBE

Before installing the natural hoods, inspect them for damage and note the number stamped on the side. The correct hood will be marked "48".

The hoods are self-sealing,requiring no additional pipe sealant. If you wish to use sealant, take care to add it to the threads only to avoid blocking the orifice.

Thread the hoods onto the supply tubes leaving about a 1/8" gap between the hood and the locking nut. FIGURE 21.

OPERATION -PROPANE &NATURALGRILLS

Checking for Gas Leaks

Check for gas leaks every time you connect your Broilmaster® propane gas grill to a Propane gas cylinder, when a connected cylinder has not been used recently, or when either a natural or propane grill is being used for the first time.

CAUTION: DO NOT USE AN OPEN FLAME WHEN CHECKING FOR LEAKS. CHECKING FOR LEAKS WITH AN OPEN FLAME MAY LEAD TO A FIRE OR EXPLOSION, RESULTING IN PROPERTY DAMAGE OR PERSONAL INJURY.

To check for gas leaks:

1.Use dish washing liquid and a little water to make a soapy solution.

2.Turn OFF the knob on the control panel.

3.Turn ON the gas at the supply or cylinder. A hissing sound indicates a leak. Turn OFF the gas and repair the leak.

4.Apply the soapy water solution to all gas connections.

5.Look for bubbles. Bubbles indicate a leak.

6.If there are bubbles turn OFF the gas and repair the leak.

7.Turn the gas back ON and repeat the above procedures until all leaks are repaired.

Air Shutter Adjustment

The venturi air shutter(s) are preset at the factory so that after five minutes the burner flames are blue with well defined cones. If, after five minutes the flame is yellow, or there is a gap between the burner and the flame, adjust the venturi air shutter as follows:

1.Turn gas OFF and let the burner cool.

2.Loosen shutter set screw

3.Close the air shutter to the minimum opening. Refer to Figure 11.

4.Light the burner, wait five minutes and then carefully open the air shutter until the flame is blue and well defined.

5.Retighten the set screw.

OPERATION

Before Cooking

Before cooking on a grill for the first time, it should be broken in to burn off any oil residue from the manufacturing process.

1.Raise the grill lid.

2.Light grill burner.

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 hot briquette cook quicker and provide better flavor.

Cooking

Broilmaster® is happy to provide a cookbook with each of its grills. The cookbook contains helpful cooking tips and instructions as well as great tasting recipes for preparing many delicious foods on your grill.

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/NFPA 70. 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 groundedthree-prongreceptacle or wall outlet. Do not cut or remove the grounding prong from the plug.

If an extension cord is required, use only a threeprong cord 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.

Cleaning the Grill

CAUTION: TO PREVENT INJURY, USE CARE WHEN

CLEANING A HOT GRILL.

NOTE: DO NOT USE A COMMERCIAL CLEANER ON THE COOKING GRID. 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 grid 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 gas knob 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 gas knob and 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 flare guard 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

Stainless steel burners often turn reddish brown after use. This does 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.

Grease Tray

Empty periodically. Replacement tray liners can be purchased at most supermarkets where disposable aluminum baking pans are displayed.

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 venturi tubes as follows:

1.Remove the cooking grids and briquette rack.

2.Remove the burner from the grill.

3.Lay the burner face down and remove the four retaining screws from the venturi tube plate and the burner. FIGURE 24.

4.Use a small flexible brush to remove any debris for the tube(s).

5. Flush with water.

6. Allow the tube(s) to dry before reinstalling.

7. Reinstall the venturi tubes and burner.

Exterior

Clean regularly with a solution of mild detergent and hot water. Touch-uppaint is available from your dealer. Broilmaster® protective covers are recommended. Stainless steel components can be easily cleaned with aspray-onstainless steel cleaner found in most hardware stores.

Briquettes

If the briquettes did not come clean during burn off, after cooling turn them over. The residue will burn off duringwarm-upfor the next use.
