Installing Char-MasterBriquets

Individuallyplacethe‘Char-Master’briquetsinasinglelayerevenlyonyourgrill’sbriquetrack;DONOTdump them onto the briquet rack. A single layer of ‘CharMaster’briquets is all that’s needed. DO NOT overlap or stack the briquets.

See Figure 9.

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‘Char-Master’briquets. Periodically turn the briquets over while they are cool.

Propane Cylinder Safety Connection Requirements

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

Failuretofollowthesesafetyprecautionscould 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.

Apropane 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.

Caution: Never use Liquid Propane (LP) gas in a grill designed for Natural gas, or Natural gas in a grill designed for Liquid Propane gas. Questions regardingdifferenttypesofgasesshouldbedirected to your local gas supplier.

Installation must conform to local codes or, in the absence of local codes, with the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1. In Canada, installation shall be in accordance with CAN/CGA-B149.2Propane Installation Code, orCAN/CGA-B149.1Natural Gas Installation Code, and local codes where applicable. Consult your localgassupplierorpropanegasdealerforcoderegulations and recommended procedures.

Warning: Broilmaster® PremiumGasGrillsrequire Liquid Propane (LP) cylinders equipped with an Overfill Protection Device (OPD). An overfilled or improperly filled Propane cylinder can be dangerous.

Always use the pressure regulator and hose assembly supplied with your Propane gas grill.

Note: Not all valve and cylinder combinations are compatible. Check warning tag on valve and cylinder as well as external fitting threads.

All Broilmaster® pressure regulators and hose assemblies require Propane cylinders with a Type 1 connection device as illustrated. Figure 10.

OPERATION

Before Cooking Electrical Accessories

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 provides better flavor.

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 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 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.

Maintenance

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 obstructingairflow. Fire,orflashback,canoccur,inand/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 17.

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.
