Safety First

DANGERS and Cautions

1.This grill is for outdoor use only, and shall not be used in a building, garage, or any other enclosed area.

2.This grill is NOT for commercial use.

3.This grill is for use with liquid propane (LP) gas only. The conversion to or attempted use of natural gas in this LP gas grill is dangerous and will void your warranty.

4.LP gas Characteristics:

a.LP gas is flammable and hazardous if handled improperly. Become aware of the characteristics before using any LP gas product.

b.LP gas is explosive under pressure, heavier than air, and settles and pools in low areas.

c.LP gas in its natural state has no odor. For your safety, an odorant is added that smells like rotten cabbage.

d.Contact with LP gas can cause freeze burns to skin.

5.LP gas tank needed to operate. Only tanks marked “propane” may be used.

6.The LP gas supply tank must be constructed and marked in accordance with the Specifications for LP gas Cylinders of the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) or the National Standard of Canada, CAN/CSAB339, Cylinders, Spheres and Tubes for the Transportation of Dangerous Goods; and Commission.

7.LP gas tank must be arranged for vapor withdrawal.

8.The LP gas tank must have a listed overfilling prevention device (OPD).

9.Only use 20-pound cylinders equipped with a cylinder connection device compatible with the connection for outdoor cooking appliances.
