Installation Instructions
Local Code Officials should be consulted prior to installation.
Open hearth broilers create a good deal of heat and smoke and should be installed
under an efficient exhaust hood.
We recommend a standard class 1 hood with fire suppression due to the small
amount of particulate being released. However, some local codes may require a
solid fuel hood.
The Charbroilers are pellet fired; however,the unit uses electricity to control the
temperature and ignite the pellets. The unit should be plugged into a 120 volt 15
amp circuit.
Following is the recommended service spacing:
 4” clearance all the way around the standard Charbroiler
 The optional lid will add 9” to the back of your Charbroiler and 25” to the
height when open.
Electrical Specifications
CB024
 120V, 5 amps

Operating Instructions
Figure 1-Charbroiler Controller
Before starting check the following:
1. Pellet level (your new Charbroiler was shipped with 200 lbs. pellets),
o Only 100% hardwood food-grade pellets should be used in
your charbroiler. Pellets should be no larger than ¼” in diameter
and ¾” long. Use of heating fuel pellets can be harmful to both
the food you are cooking and your Charbroiler.
2. Ensure the fire pot is clean and clear of ash.
3. Make sure the pellet slide is clean.
4. Ensure the Master On/Off Switch is ON.
When you turn the unit on, the igniters automatically come on for 10 minutes to
start burning the pellets.
1. After 10 minutes, the igniters automatically go off.
2. While cooking, if you run out of pellets and the burner goes out, simply
refill the hopper with pellets and press the igniter button to restart the
burner.
3. The igniter will come on for 10 minutes and then automatically shut off.
Burners are controlled with an electronic controller with “Low,” “Med,” and
High” settings. In order to light the burners:
1. Press the on/off button and adjust the controller to “Med.”
2. NOTE: When the broiler is first lit, it will smoke for approximately 15
to 20 minutes as the fire starts as oils and impurities are burned off.
3. Once the unit lights, you will see smoke coming from the unit.
4. When this smoke clears and you see that each burner is lit, adjust the
controller to the cooking temperature you desire.

8.
Always preheat charbroiler prior to cooking.
For searing set the burner to “Hi.”
For cooking and finishing set to “Med.”
During slow times adjust the unit to “Low.”
The broiler requires 100% hardwood food-grade pellets for operation.
 Before starting the unit, add pellets to the hopper.
 The unit will cook on “Hi” for approximately 4 hours without adding
more pellets.
Once a week, the pellet hopper should be cleaned to remove all pellets and
sawdust. We recommend using a shop vacuum once a week to clean the hopper
area (see Charbroiler illustration for hopper location).
The drip tray is located at the bottom of the unit and is easily removed from the
front of the unit. Water should be added to the drip tray and replaced as necessary
(See Figure 2).
The drip tray helps prevent flare-ups and catches grease (see Charbroiler
illustration for drip tray location).
Hot water vapors rising from the drip tray and through the combustion chamber
helps reduce flare-ups. Exercise care when using your Charbroiler.
Add water to back section
of drip tray
Figure 2-Drip Tray
Seasoning the Cooking Grates
1. Set the heat control switch to the “Low” position,
2. Preheat for 15 to 20 minutes.
3. Use a cloth to spread a thin film of cooking oil over the top of the grate
surface.
4. Allow the film to remain on the grate for about 5 minutes.
5. Wipe the surface clean and apply another film of cooking oil.
6. Wipe the surface clean again.
7. The Charbroiler is now ready for use. The oil may smoke—this is normal.

Shut Down Instructions
Make sure the charbroiler is always shut down properly.
 If you have been running the unit on HI, drop down to LOW for at least 5
minutes before turning the unit off.
 Press the on/off button on each controller
 Do not unplug or turn Master On/Off Switch off for at least 15 minutes to
allow unit fans to finish cooling down unit.
Cleaning Instructions
 After each use:
o Clean the grates with a metal brush
o Remove and wash/rinse out drip tray
o Clean out fire pots of access debris
o Remove and wash/rinse off heat deflector
o Wipe exterior surfaces with detergent and a cloth (a non-abrasive cleaner
can be used)
