See Figure 12.

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 post heating) of a grill will clean the‘Char-Master’briquets.Periodically turn the briquets over while they are cool.

OPERATION

Before Cooking

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

1.Raise the grill lid.

2.Light grill burners.

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.

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.

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 grids. Do not brush grids while they are hot. Do not scrape grids. This can damage the porcelain coating and void the warranty on the cooking 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 yourfaceand arms. Waituntilthe grillhas 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

PeriodicallyremovecookinggridsandChar-MasterBriquetsor flavor screen 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

Visuallyinspecttheburnerflameswitheachuse.Fiveminutes afterlighting,theflamesshouldbeblueandhavewelldefined cones. See Figure 21. See the troubleshooting section if the flames are yellow or lift off the burner.

Stainless steel burners often turn reddish brown after use. This does not effect the performance of the grill. When cleaningtheinteriorofthegrill,removetheburnersandclean 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.

Burner (Venturi) Tubes

The burner (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 burner (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 burner (venturi) tubes as follows:

1.Remove the cooking grids and briquette rack or flavor screen.

2.Remove the burner from the grill.

3.Use a small flexible brush to remove any debris from the burner (venturi) tube.

4.Flush with water.

5.Allow the burner (venturi) tube to dry before reinstalling.

6.Reinstall the burner, briquet rack and briquets or flavor screen, and cooking grids.

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.

Char-MasterBriquettes

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