and it’s associated Water Pan, and
Cooking Grill if less food cooking is
required.
6.
Adding Charcoal and/or Wood during cooking:
a.Remove the Dome Lid (C) by grasping handle (use hot pad, or heat
resistant gloves, not included), tilting
it towards you to allow heat and
smoke to escape away from your
face. NOTE: Use caution as flames
can flare up when fresh air suddenly
comes in contact with the charcoal
and/or wood fire.
For technical questions, please call 1-800-444-3353.
Page 7
b.Carefully open side Door (H). When
the Smoker House Grill is being
used, the Doors (H) will become
very hot.
g.Use a flexible funnel or spout (not
supplied) and carefully add water to
within one inch of the Water Pan (D)
lip.
c. Use long cooking tongs (not included) to lightly brush ashes off hot
coals before using the tongs to add
more charcoal and/or wood.
h.Pour water slowly to avoid splashing
or over-filling.
d.Leave Door (H) open until the charcoal and/or wood is burning, and
then it may be closed.
e.Replace the Dome Lid (C).
7.
Adding Water during Cooking:
a.Option 1 - Adding water through the
top of the Smoker House Grill.
b.Remove the Dome Lid (C) by grasping handle (use hot pad, or heat
resistant gloves, not included), tilting
it towards you to allow heat and
smoke to escape away from your
face. NOTE: Use caution as flames
can flare up when fresh air suddenly
comes in contact with the charcoal
and/or wood fire.
c. If the water is low, add water by
moving the food on the upper Cooking Grill (E) aside with a large fork,
or cooking tongs (not supplied)
and pouring water carefully down
through the slats in the Cooking Grill
(E). Pour slowly to avoid splashing
or over filling.
d.Re-position the food for proper cooking and replace the Dome Lid (C).
e.Option 2 - Adding water through the
upper side Door (H).
f. Carefully open the upper side Door
(H). Use caution because flames
may suddenly flare up when fresh air
is exposed to burning coal or wood.
SKU 66927
i. Close upper side Door (H) and allow
food to continue cooking.
8.
Cooking Tips:
a.Before starting to cook, prepare all
food in advance.
b.Ensure that all food is completely
cooked before being consumed.
c. Cut fat off of meat before grilling to
avoid it dripping onto hot fire and
causing flare-ups.
d.If marinade is used, let meat dry
completely before grilling as oily
meat can cause flare-ups and tends
to burn.
e.Herbs and spices should be used
before meat is placed on the grill.
f. Aluminum foil is most suitable for
cooking vegetables.
g.During smoking, avoid the temptation to lift the Dome Lid (C) to check
the food. Lifting the lid allows heat
to escape making additional cooking
time necessary.
