• Do not mistake brown or black accumulation of grease and
smoke for paint. Interiors of gas grills are not painted at the
factory (and should never be painted). Apply a strong solution
of detergent and water or use a grill cleaner with scrub brush
on insides of grill lid and bottom. Rinse and allow to completely
air dry. Do not apply a caustic grill/oven cleaner to painted
surfaces.
• Plastic parts: Wash with warm soapy water and wipe dry.
s
Do not use citrisol, abrasive cleaners, degreasers or a
concentrated grill cleaner on plastic parts. Damage to and
failure of parts can result.
• Porcelain surfaces: Because of glass-like composition, most
residue can be wiped away with baking soda/water solution or
specially formulated cleaner. Use nonabrasive scouring powder
for stubborn stains.
• Painted surfaces: Wash with mild detergent or nonabrasive
cleaner and warm soapy water. Wipe dry with a soft
nonabrasive cloth.
• Stainless steel surfaces: To maintain your grill’s high quality
appearance, wash with mild detergent and warm soapy water
and wipe dry with a soft cloth after each use. Baked-on grease
deposits may require the use of an abrasive plastic cleaning
pad. Use only in direction of brushed finish to avoid damage.
Do not use abrasive pad on areas with graphics.
• Cooking surfaces: If a bristle brush is used to clean any of
the grill cooking surfaces, ensure no loose bristles remain on
cooking surfaces prior to grilling. It is not recommended to
clean cooking surfaces while grill is hot.
Cleaning the Burner Assembly
CAUTION
SPIDER ALERT!
SPIDER AND WEBS
INSIDE BURNER TUBE
If you notice that your grill is getting hard to light or that the
flame isn’t as strong as it should be, take the time to check and
clean the venturi’s.
VALVE

SPIDER WEBS
INSIDE VENTURI
BURNER
In some areas of the country, spiders or small insects have been
known to create “flashback” problems. The spiders spin webs, build
nests and lay eggs in the grill’s venturi tube(s) obstructing the flow of
gas to the burner. The backed-up gas can ignite in the venturi behind
the control panel. This is known as a flashback and it can damage
your grill and even cause injury.
To prevent flashbacks and ensure good performance the burner and
venturi assembly should be removed from the grill and cleaned
before use whenever the grill has been idle for an extended period.
Storing Your Grill
• Clean cooking grates.
• Store in dry location.
• Cover grill if stored outdoors. Choose from a variety of grill
covers offered by manufacturer.
• When LP tank is connected to grill, store outdoors in a wellventilated space and out of reach of children.
• If the outdoor cooking gas appliance is not in use, the gas must
be turned off at the supply tank. Storage of an outdoor cooking
gas appliance indoors is permissible only if the tank is
disconnected and removed from the appliance.
• Store grill indoors ONLY if LP tank is turned off and
disconnected, removed from grill and stored outdoors.
• When removing grill from storage, follow “Cleaning the Burner
Assembly” instructions before starting grill.
Follow these instructions to clean and/or replace parts of burner
assembly or if you have trouble igniting grill.
1. Turn gas off at control knobs and LP tank.
2. Remove cooking grates and flame tamers.
3. Remove screws and carryover tubes from rear of burners.
4. Remove screw and washers to disengage burner from
bracket on firebox.
5. Remove screws to detach electrode from burner. Electrode
should remain in firebox.
6. Carefully lift each burner up and away from valve openings.
We suggest three ways to clean the burner tubes. Use the one
easiest for you.
(A) Bend a stiff wire (a light weight coat hanger works well)
into a small hook. Run the hook through each burner
tube several times.
(B) Use a narrow bottle brush with a flexible handle (do not
use a brass wire brush), run the brush through each
burner tube several times.
(C) Wear eye protection: Use an air hose to force air into
the burner tube and out the burner ports. Check each
port to make sure air comes out each hole.
7. Wire brush entire outer surface of burner to remove food
residue and dirt.
8. Clean any blocked ports with a stiff wire such as an open
paper clip.
9. Check burner for damage, due to normal wear and corrosion
some holes may become enlarged. If any large cracks or
holes are found replace burner.
VERY IMPORTANT: Burner tubes must reengage valve
openings. See illustrations at right.

Indirect Cooking
Food Safety
Poultry and large cuts of meat cook slowly to perfection on
the grill by indirect heat. The heat from selected burners
circulates gently throughout the grill, cooking meat or poultry
without the touch of a direct flame. This method greatly reduces
flare-ups when cooking extra fatty cuts because there is no direct
flame to ignite the fats and juices that drip during cooking.
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 from ready-to-eat
foods 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
1-800-535-4555 In Washington, DC (202) 720-3333, 10:00 am4:00 pm EST.
Indirect Cooking Instructions
• Always cook with the lid closed.
• Due to weather conditions, cooking times may vary. During
cold and windy conditions the temperature setting may need
to be increased to insure sufficient cooking temperatures.

• Meat and poultry cooked on a grill often browns very fast on the
outside. Use a meat thermometer to be sure food has reached
a safe internal temperature, and cut into food to check for
visual signs of doneness.
• Whole poultry should reach 180° F; breasts, 170° F. Juices
should run clear and flesh should not be pink.
• Hamburgers made of any ground meat or poultry should reach
160° F, and be brown in the middle with no pink juices. Beef,
veal and lamb steaks, roasts and chops can be cooked to 145°
F. All cuts of pork should reach 160° F.
• NEVER partially grill meat or poultry and finish cooking later.
Cook food completely to destroy harmful bacteria.
• When reheating takeout foods or fully cooked meats like hot
dogs, grill to 165° F, or until steaming hot.

Rotisserie Cooking
When using a rotisserie on your grill, you should remove the
cooking grates and warming rack. This will provide
adequate clearance for large foods.
CARE AND CLEANING OF YOUR STAINLESS STEEL GRILL
Routine cleaning is necessary to preserve the appearance and corrosion resistance of Stainless Steel. The perception that
many people have is that stainless steel will not rust. That is not the case in certain conditions. Rust marks are regular steel
particles that have become attached to the surface of stainless steel. They may also occur if you are using a steel wool or
wire wool scouring pad instead of a nylon scouring pad to clean your grill. In coastal areas, small rust pits may develop on
the surface of your grill that cannot be fully removed by a cleaner. Concentrate bleaches and other solutions containing
chlorine can also cause rust pits and should not be used.
Cooking creates smoke that may eventually coat and discolor the stainless steel surface. Grease fires will darken the
stainless steel surface, but will not affect the integrity of the steel. Periodic cleaning of the cooking surface and inside of the
grill helps decrease the risk of a fire. The methods below are suggestions for cleaning stainless steel surfaces. Choose a
cleaning method appropriate for your needs. It is recommended that you use a Char-Broil® grill cover to help prolong the
life and prevent discoloration of your grill.
Routine Care
After each use, let your grill cool and then wipe the grill with a soft, damp, soapy cloth and rinse with clean water. It is
important to remove any food particles or marinade from the stainless steel surface of your grill. Most marinades are highly
acidic and damage stainless steel. DO NOT USE STEEL OR WIRE WOOL. To clean, polish and protect your stainless steel
grill on a weekly basis use Char-Broil® Stainless Steel Grill Cleaner. For quick, convenient cleaning, use Char-Broil®
Stainless Steel Grill Wipes.
Stubborn Stains and Rust
Stubborn stains, discoloration and possibly rust and rust pitting can occur from cooking, exposure to harsh outdoor
conditions, or extreme cooking temperatures. For stubborn rust stains and grease stains, you can restore your grill with the
Char-Broil Stainless Steel Restoration Kit. It is available at major retailers retailers or you can buy it online at
www.charbroil.com or www.grilllovers.com. For the latest new products and information for the care and cleaning of your
stainless steel grill go to www.charbroil.com.
* Always rub or wipe in the direction of the grain or polish lines in the stainless steel surface, not across them.
** Do not let stainless steel cleaners come in contact with painted or plastic surfaces as damage may occur.
