GRILLING GUIDE – Getting Started
First Time Use
Read your Assembly Manual and ensure the grill is put together
properly. Remove all Point-of-Purchase advertising material from
all grill surfaces before first use. We recommend operating your
grill on its highest setting for 15-20 minutes prior to your first use.
This aids in removing the oils used during manufacturing.
Lava Rock / Briquettes
This gas grill has been designed, engineered, and tested to be
used with flame tamers or heat distribution plates to provide
more even heating, improve the cleaning process, and reduce
flare-ups. The addition of after market lava rocks, charcoal, or
briquettes of any type will cause poor combustion and increase
the likelihood of a grease fire, and is not recommended. Using
briquettes, lava rock, or charcoal in this grill will void your
warranty. For extra smoke flavor, we recommend using a
smoker box with wood chips.
Temperature - Convective Grills ONLY.
The temperature gauge in the hood of your new grill measures
air temperature. The air temperature inside your grill will never
be as hot as the temperature at the cooking surface.
Note: Since 1995, all regulators (the part that attaches to the gas
tank to regulate the flow of gas) have included a safety feature
that restricts gas flow in the event of a gas leak. You can
inadvertently activate this safety feature without having a gas
leak. This typically occurs when you turn on the gas using the
grill control knob before you turn on the LP tank valve. If the gas
regulator safety feature activates, the grill will only reach
temperatures between 250°F and 300°F even with all burners on
the high setting.
Regulator
Coupling Nut
If your grill is not getting hotter than 250°F to 300°F these
steps should be taken first to reset the gas regulator safety
device:
1. Open the grill lid.
2. Turn off all knobs on the control panel in front.
3. Turn off the tank knob.
4. Disconnect the regulator from the LP tank.
5. Wait 30 seconds.
6. Reconnect the regulator to the LP tank.
7. Slowly open the LP tank knob all the way. Do not put
excessive force on the valve at the full open position to avoid
damaging the valve.
8. Turn on the appropriate control knob and light the grill per the
instructionsl.
An illustration of this process is included in this Product Guide.
See Troubleshooting section for additional information.
Pre-Heating Your Grill
Just like your home oven, your grill should be pre-heated to
provide optimum performance. Pre-heat the grill on high for 1015 minutes – longer if weather conditions require. Please refer to
the lighting instructions inside the Product Guide if you have
questions about how to light your grill. A match-light chain and
hole is provided for your convenience.

GRILLING GUIDE – Grilling 101
Outdoor grilling is really quite simple. You'll succeed with
burgers, dogs, or steaks usually on your very first try. With
experience, you will learn how to work with your grill, creating
more imaginative meals all the time. This knowledge makes up
the art of grilling. Before you start grilling, organize your food
according to cooking technique and required cooking time, and
optimize the use of your grilling area.
Rotisserie Cooking
Rotisserie cooking is best for 'round' meat, such as large roasts,
whole poultry, and pork. It generally requires an accessory motor
and spit rod that allows the meat to be turned at a constant
speed. Rotisserie cooking is best done in front of a special
rotisserie burner, or utilizing an indirect cooking burner
arrangement. A pan can be placed underneath the meat to catch
grease and food drippings, and helps minimize clean-up.
Direct Cooking
Direct cooking involves grilling your meat directly over high heat.
It is perfect for searing steaks, chops, and other smaller pieces of
meat and vegetables that quickly make their way to the table.
Indirect Cooking
Indirect cooking utilizes select burners to circulate heat
throughout the grill, without direct contact between the meat and
the flame. The meat is placed over the burner that is 'off'. This
method is generally used to slow cook large cuts of meat and
poultry. A pan can be placed underneath the meat to catch
grease and food drippings, and helps minimize clean-up.
Food Safety
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.
Separate: Separate raw meats 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.

GRILLING GUIDE – Tips & Tricks
Cooking on your new grill is a hands-on experience, and it is
recommended to remain outside with your grill while cooking.
Grilling can be affected by many external conditions. In cold
weather, you will need more heat to reach an ideal cooking
temperature, and grilling may take longer. The meat's internal
temperature and thickness can also affect cooking times. Cold
and thicker meats will take longer to cook.
Wood Chips
For extra smoke flavor when grilling, try adding wood chips.
Soak the chips in water for approximately 30 minutes before
adding to a smoke box or pan. Place smoke box or pan on top of
the cooking grate above the flame. Turn grill on high until the
wood starts to smoke. Reduce heat to desired temperature for
cooking, and place food on cooking grate as desired. Close lid to
retain more smoke. Hardwood varieties that work particularly
well with grilled foods include Alder, Apple, Cherry, Grapevines,
Hickory, Mesquite, Oak, Rosemary and Sassafras.
Internal Meat Temperatures
Meat cooked on a grill often browns very fast on the outside.
Therefore, use a meat thermometer to ensure it has reached
safe internal temperatures.
USDA Recommended Safe Minimum
Internal Temperatures
Beef, Veal, Lamb, Steak, Roasts, & Whole Pork
(with a 3 minute rest time)
145° F
Fish
Beef, Veal, Lamb, and Pork - Ground
Egg Dishes
Turkey, Chicken & Duck Whole, Pieces & Ground
145° F
160° F
160° F
165° F
Skewers
Metal skewers should be flat, with long handles. Round skewers
allow food to roll when turned, so it may not cook as evenly. Use
metal skewers when cooking meat kabobs. Wooden skewers
should be soaked in water for an hour before use, and are best
used for quick cooking foods such as vegetables and fruits.
Please refer to the USDA for complete, up-to-date information.
Our internal temperature chart is based on USDA standards for
meat doneness. Check it out at www.isitdoneyet.gov
Sauces
Sauces containing sugars and fats can cause flare-ups, and your
food may burn. In general, apply these sauces during the final
10 minutes of cooking. Keep in mind, use of excessive sauces
or glazes will also require extra cleaning afterwards.
Marinades and Rubs
To enhance the flavor of grilled foods, a liquid marinade or dry
rub can be used prior to cooking. Meat can be either soaked or
injected with liquid marinade up to 24 hours prior to grilling. Dry
rubs can be applied directly to the meat immediately before
grilling.
Utensils
Use tongs or a spatula to handle the food instead of a fork, and
don't turn the food too
often. Piercing the food
with a fork will release
juices that you want in
the meat, and may
cause flare-ups.

GRILLING GUIDE – Cleaning Your Grill
Why Clean?
We've all heard the saying 'An ounce of prevention is worth a
pound of cure'. This is great advice when it comes to keeping
your grill clean.
Routine Care
Periodic cleaning of this grill is necessary,
as grill fires can occur when grease and
food debris collect in the bottom of the grill.
After each use, remove any remaining
food particles from the cooking grate and
inside of the grill using a grill brush. Do
this after the grill has cooled down, yet is
still warm. It is much easier to clean food
particles while warmth is still present, than
after the food particles have completely
cooled and hardened. This grill is not
designed to be 'burned off' by closing the
lid and turning the burners on High for an
extended time. The excessive heat
generated can cause leftover grease to
catch fire, and can cause permanent
damage to your grill.
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.
Storing Your Grill
• Clean cooking grates.
• Store grill in dry location.
• When LP cylinder is connected to grill, store outdoors in a well
ventilated space and out of reach of children.
• Cover grill if stored outdoors. Choose from a variety of grill
covers offered by manufacturer.
• Store grill indoors ONLY if LP cylinder is turned off,
disconnected, and removed from grill. Never store LP cylinder
indoors.
• When removing grill from storage, follow the 'Cleaning the
Burner Assembly' instructions in the Use and Care section of
the Product Guide.
Critters
Spiders like to make their homes in the venturi tubes of grills.
These must be inspected and cleaned regularly to ensure there
are no blockages. Refer to the Use and Care portion of this
Product Guide for complete information.
General Cleaning
Plastic parts: Wash with warm soapy water and wipe dry. Do not
use 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
glass cleaner. Use non-abrasive scouring powder for stubborn
stains.
Painted surfaces: Wash with mild detergent or non-abrasive
cleaner and warm water. Wipe dry with a soft non-abrasive cloth.
Stainless steel surfaces: Stainless steel can rust under certain
conditions. This can be caused by environmental conditions
such as chlorine or salt water, or improper
cleaning tools such as wire or steel
wool. It can also discolor due to heat,
chemicals, or grease build-up. To
maintain your grill's high quality
appearance, wash with mild detergent
and warm water, or use a stainless
steel grill cleaner. 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.

• 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.

INSIDE BURNER
If your barbeque is getting hard to light or
the flame is weak, check and clean the
venturis and burners.
3. Remove carryover tubes and burners.
4. Detach electrode from burner.
NOTE: Removal/Detachment method will depend on the
burner configuration. See different configurations in
illustrations below.
5. 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.
6. Wire brush entire outer surface of burner to remove food
residue and dirt.
7. Clean any blocked ports with a stiff wire such as an open
paper clip.
8. 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.
