Safety
IMPORTANT:
Your Dacor grill is designed to be safe when
installed properly. However, care must be
used as these grills can produce very high
temperatures which increases the potential
for injury or accidents. We recommend you
always follow the safety notes listed below.
NOTES:
1.
Carefully read this manual before using
the grill, this will reduce the risk of
injury due to fire or electric shock.
2. Proper installation is extremely
important. Refer to the installation
instructions included within the
literature kit which shipped with your
grill. Your installer should show you the
location of the gas shut off valve and
the electrical connection. You should
also be familiar with the correct and
easiest way to shut off these utilities
in case of an emergency. Minimum
clearances to combustible materials
should always be observed. Reference
the correct clearances in the installation
instructions.
3. Repair and replacement of any parts
within this appliance should be
referred to an authorized Dacor service
technician.
4. Children should never be allowed to sit,
stand, or play around the grill at any
time. Children should never be allowed
to crawl inside the grill cart. Remember,
when in use, the grill will get hot
enough to cause severe burns.
5. Avoid the potential for grease fires by
frequently cleaning the grease tray.
Always allow the unit to completely cool
down before removing the grease tray
for cleaning.
6. Keep hands and fingers away from all
edges of the canopy while in the raised
position.
7. Never move the grill during cooking.
8. Always keep the canopy closed when
moving the grill cart.
9. Spiders and insects can nest in the
burners of this grill. This can obstruct
the proper flow of gas into the burner
and cause improper operation, fire
hazard and potential damage to the unit.
Periodically inspect the burners. If any
of these symptoms occur, immediately
refer to service or the troubleshooting
section of this manual.
10. Your outdoor grill is equipped with a
three-prong grounding plug to protect
animals against shock hazard. This
plug should be plugged directly into
a properly grounded three-prong
receptacle. Never cut or remove the
grounding prong from this plug.
11. The grill canopy should be closed
during the pre-heating period.
IMPORTANT:
12. Gas Smells:
•
If you smell gas when the unit is not
in use, immediately shut off the gas
at the main valve, open the canopy
and call your local service agency
to inspect the unit. Finding a leak is
not a do-it-yourself process.
•
If you smell gas when the unit is
in use, immediately shut off the
gas at the main valve, open the
canopy, and dissipate for at least
five minutes. Relight the burners
and verify that they are operating
properly. If the burners fail to light
or are not functioning properly, shut
off the main gas supply valve and
call your local service agency for
inspection.
13. Never block the vents located on the
back of the grill or the opening at the
rear of the canopy. Blocking any or
all of these vents during cooking, will
result in damage to the unit and may
cause a fire or injury.

Liquid Propane Tanks
1.
2.
Dacor LP model grills are set at the
factory for LP tank installations. Use
only the Dacor supplied regulator. DO
NOT ATTEMPT FIELD CONVERSIONS.
Approved field conversions from natural to
LP or LP to natural will only be approved
when completed by an authorized Dacor
servicer.
Dacor grills are approved for a maximum
LP tank capacity of 20 pounds (5 gallons).
The tank must be constructed and marked
in accordance with the specifications for
LP-gas tanks of the U.S. Department
of Transportation (DOT) or the National
Standard of Canada, CAN/CSA-B339, tank,
Spheres and Tubes of the Transportation
of Dangerous Goods. To minimize the
potential for fire or an explosion, the
following precautions should be observed
when using, filing, or storing an LP tank:
• Never use a dented or rusty LP tank.
If there is any question as to the
soundness of the tank, have it checked
by your LP supplier.
• Never use a tank with a damaged or
defective shut off valve.
• Do not over fill the LP tank. Never fill
the tank beyond eighty percent (80%)
of its capacity. Overfilling will cause
the pressure relief valve on the tank to
vent excess gas vapor. This vapor is
combustible and can ignite, causing a
fire.
• When transporting an LP tank, ensure it
is in an upright position and away from
any sources of high heat.
• Do not store additional LP tanks inside
the cart of the unit. Tanks must be stored
outdoors in a well-ventilated area out of
the direct sunlight and/or sources of high
heat, and out of the reach of children.
• LP tank supply systems must be
arranged for vapor withdrawal.
• LP tank used must include a collar to
protect the tank valve.
2
For your safety, the gas supply must
be turned off at the LP-gas supply tank
when your grill is not in use.
The LP-gas supply cylinder must be
disconnected when this barbecuing
appliance is not in use.
If the appliance is to be stored indoors,
the LP tank must be disconnected and
removed from the appliance.
LP tanks not connected for use shall not
be stored in the vicinity of this or any
other appliance.
Detach and leave the tank outdoors if
storing the unit indoors. These grills are
for outdoor use only.
Check for leaks after every tank change.

Preheating Instructions
NOTE:
When preheating, set burners on high.
Following preheat, adjust burners to desired
temperature setting.
In order for the U- burners and burner box to
remain clean, the gas burners and the flame
spreaders have to be hot enough to vaporize
fats/oils/marinades as they drip upon them.
Without a proper preheat, these materials will
collect on both the flame spreader and the
burner tubes resulting in partial or total loss of
ignition or a decrease in burner performance.
Always light every burner to generate maximum
heat output and to assure even heat distribution.
Using only one or two burners can eventually
result in a buildup of unwanted material and
could affect performance.

•
Preheating is an important part
of proper grilling – preheat to

•
Smoking foods – heat to a
temperature range from 225 to 300
degrees.
In colder climates the infrared burner may
have to be used in order to achieve the
suggested preheat temperature of 500F.
Regardless of what you are barbecuing, use
every burner. This assures even heat distribution
and also improves grease/fat management.
Using only one or two burners will eventually
result in an unwanted buildup of material that
might inhibit reliable performance.
After using the barbecue, allow it to continue
heating an additional five minutes. This allows
materials to move to the grease tray and away
from the burner area. This assures clean
burners and a healthy ignition system.
4
Advanced preparation:
•
Bring all food items to be grilled to
thawed temperature.
•
Check to make sure the drip
retrieval tray is in position.
•
Preheat the grill with the canopy
closed to a minimum of 225
degrees or the applicable cooking
temperature for the food you are
preparing.
•
Refer to the Dacor cooking
guide for preheat/cooking food
temperatures and style of cooking
recommended.
Begin the cooking process:
•
Once you have achieved the
appropriate temperature for your
chosen recipe, place the food
product on the grill and begin the
timing process.
•
Refer to your Dacor cooking guide
for approximate times for all types
of grilled foods.
After completion of cooking:
•
Remove the food to serve and close
the canopy for a safer environment.
(Refer to the Care and Cleaning
section of this manual for further
instructions.)
Smoker cooking is done with the
canopy in the down position. Smoke will
be exhausting through the grill vents.
Do not block vents. Blocking vents will
damage the unit and may cause fire or
injury.
Smoker wood chips are soaked with
liquids which create steam and smoke
while barbecuing. Proceed with caution
during cooking. This steam can be
very hot and dangerous. (Refer to the
cooking guide)
Frequently, the smoker box will need
to be refilled during cooking. It will be
extremely hot. Exercise caution during
this process. Steam and hot metal
surfaces can cause personal injuries
and possible fire.
NOTES:
1.
2.
3.
Smoker cooking enhances the flavors
of food during grilling or rotisserie
cooking.
Your Dacor smoker box is a removable
accessory that is shipped with your
originally purchased grill product.
The smoker should be filled with
your choice of wood chips. For your
convenience, please refer to your Dacor
grill cooking guide for a chart of wood
types, characteristics, and foods to go
with each type of wood chip.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
9.
Once you have prepared the wood and
smoker box for use, while the grill is
still cool, select a direct or indirect
cooking location, then place the smoker
box appropriately. (Refer to the grill
cooking guide for smoker direct vs.
indirect cooking.)
To place the smoker box correctly
•
Determine desired smoker location.
•
Remove one small grill and the
even heat channel. (The grills
and even heat channels may be
moved to create a smoker opening
anywhere across the full width of
the unit.)
•
Place smoker in the opening.
Turn on the burner to maximum (HI)
temperature. Leave the burner on high
until the chips begin smoking. Then turn
the heat down where the chips don’t dry
out or flame up.
Recipes with long time duration will
require the addition of wood and liquid
to the smoker box. Remember, every
additional time you open the grill
canopy and smoker box, you will extend
your recipe cooking times.
Clean up should occur only after cool
down. Do not leave the smoker box and
its contents inside the grill during HI
heat self cleaning.
A cool smoker box and the residue can
be removed safely for cleaning. Dump
the cool wood remnants and wash the
stainless steel smoker box with warm
water and dish soap. Rinse well and dry
the box. Do not dump the remnants until
cool.
Rotisserie Cooking
WARNING:
2.
3.
Rotisserie burner operation:
•

rotisserie rod. (Recommended
loading procedures are listed in
your Dacor grill cooking guide.)
•
Mount your loaded rotisserie
rod into the drive location on the
rotisserie motor and into secondary
mounting support on the left side of
the grill.
•
Double check all rotisserie forks
and locking screws for tightness to
assure items will not move during
rotation.
•
Turn on the motor and observe
several rotations to confirm the
food is stable, then close the
canopy completely and you are
cooking.
This unit is equipped with a 3-prong
grounding plug for your protection against
shock hazard and should be plugged directly
into a properly grounded receptacle. Do not
cut or remove the grounding prong from this
plug. Do not allow the rotisserie electrical
cord to touch any heated surface of your
grill.
2.
Cooking with the rotisserie burner is not
recommended during high wind.
If any flame is blown out during windy
conditions and does not automatically
re-ignite within 5 to 7 seconds, turn off
the control and attempt a new ignition
until you hear the constant clicking stop
and you see flame ignition.
NOTES:
1.
Rotisserie cooking utilizes the intense
