General Instructions
Storage
Your Weber Gas Barbecue is a portable outdoor cooking
appliance. With the Weber Gas Barbecue you can grill,
barbecue, roast and bake with results that are difficult to
duplicate with indoor kitchen appliances. The closed lid and
Flavorizer Bars produce that "outdoor" flavor in the food.
The Weber Gas Barbecue is portable so you can easily
change its location in your yard or on your patio.
Portability means you can take your Weber Gas Barbecue
with you if you move.
■
The gas must be turned OFF at the LP tank when the
Weber Gas Barbecue is not in use.
■
When the Weber Gas Barbecue is stored indoors, the
gas supply must be disconnected and the LP tank
stored outdoors in a well-ventilated space.
■
LP tanks must be stored outdoors in a well-ventilated
area out of the reach of children. Disconnected LP
tanks must not be stored in a building, garage or any
other enclosed area.
■
When the LP tank is not disconnected from the Weber
Gas Barbecue, the appliance and LP tank must be
kept outdoors in a well-ventilated space.
Liquid Propane (LP) gas supply is easy to use and gives
you more cooking control than charcoal fuel.

Barbecue must be used. This regulator is set for 10.5
inches of water column (pressure).
This Weber Gas Barbecue is designed for use with
liquid propane (LP) gas only. Do not use with natural
(piped in city) gas. The valves, orifices, hose and
regulator are for LP gas only.
■
Do not use with charcoal fuel.

Set LP fuel scale
Fill LP tank
You will need: LP tank (empty).
Note - The LP tank manufacturer is responsible for the
materials, workmanship and performance of the tank. If
the tank has a defect, malfunctions, or you have a
question regarding the tank, call the tank manufacturer's
customer service center. The phone number is on the
warning decal which is permanently attached to the tank.
If the tank manufacturer has not resolved the issue to your
satisfaction, then call Weber-Stephen Products Co.,
Customer Service Center.
Note - For accuracy, the fuel scale must be set with an
empty tank.
We utilize various LP tank manufacturers. Some of the
tanks we receive have differing top collar assemblies.
(The top collar is the metal protective ring around the
valve.) One series of tanks mounts with the valve facing
front. The other tanks mount with the valve facing away
from the fuel scale. These types of tanks are illustrated in
Figure 15.
To fill, take the LP tank to an RV center, or look up
gas-propane in the phone book for other sources of
LP gas.
Loosen the tank lock wing nut. Tighten so the lock is
held up out of the way. Figure 15 (a). Lift and hook the
tank onto the fuel scale. With an empty LP tank, adjust
the fuel scale setting to E with scale setting (top) wing nut.
Figure 15 (b).
WARNING: We recommend that your LP tank be
filled at an authorized LP gas dealer by a qualified
attendant, who fills the tank by weight.
IMPROPER FILLING IS DANGEROUS.
CAUTION: Do not remove adjustment wing nut from
tank scale.
Tell your LP dealer that this is a new LP tank. The air must
be removed from a new LP tank before the initial filling.
Your LP tank dealer is equipped to do this.
After adjusting tank scale, push tank down a couple of
times to check that the tank scale is set on “E”.
WARNING: If you exchange your LP tank, make
sure you get a similar tank in return. Your LP tank is
equipped with a quick-disconnect valve and an OPD
(Overfilling Prevention Device). Other LP tanks are not
compatible with your barbecue connection.
The LP tank must be installed, transported and stored in
an upright position. LP tank should not be dropped or
handled roughly.

Cooking
Storage and/or Nonuse
WARNING: Do not move the Weber Gas Barbecue
when operating or hot.
■
The gas must be turned off at the LP tank when the
Weber Gas Barbecue is not in use.
You can adjust the FRONT, CENTER and BACK burners as
desired. The control settings High (H), Medium (M), Low
(L), or Off (O) are described in your Weber cookbook. The
cookbook uses these notations to describe the settings of
the FRONT, CENTER, and BACK burners. For example, to
sear steaks you would use (HHH) (all burners at high).
Then to complete cooking you would use (MOM) (FRONT
at medium, CENTER off, and BACK at medium). See your
Weber cookbook for detailed cooking instructions.
■
When the Weber Gas Barbecue is stored indoors, the
gas supply must be DISCONNECTED and the LP
tank stored outdoors in a well-ventilated space.
■
LP tanks must be stored outdoors in a well- ventilated
area out of reach of children. Disconnected LP tanks
must not be stored in a building, garage or any other
enclosed area.
■
When the LP tank is not disconnected from the Weber
Gas Barbecue, the appliance and LP tank must be
kept outdoors in a well-ventilated space.
■
The Weber Gas Barbecue should be checked for
gas leaks and any obstructions in the burner tubes
before using. (See Sections "General and Annual
Maintenance.")
■
Check that the areas under the control panel and the
bottom tray are free from debris that might obstruct
the flow of combustion or ventilation air.
■
The Spider Stopper Guards should also be checked for
any obstructions. (See Section "Annual Maintenance.")
■
Keep the appliance area clear and free from
combustible materials, gasoline and other flammable
vapors and liquids.
Note: The temperatures inside your cooking box, for the
first few uses, while surfaces are still very reflective, may
be hotter than those shown in your cookbook. Cooking
conditions may require the adjustment of the burner
controls to attain the correct cooking temperatures.
CAUTION: Replace thermometer in lid when not in
use. Do not leave thermometer in food while cooking.
If burners go out during cooking, open lid, turn off all
burners and wait 5 minutes before relighting.
Preheating
Your Weber Gas Barbecue is an energy efficient appliance.
It operates at a low B.T.U. rate for economy. To preheat,
after lighting, close lid and turn all burners to high (HHH).
Preheating to between 500° and 550° F (260° and 290° C)
will take 10 to 15 minutes depending on conditions such as
air temperature and wind.
Drippings and grease
The Flavorizer Bars are designed to "smoke" the right
amount of drippings for flavorful cooking. Excess drippings
and grease accumulate in the catch pan under the bottom
tray. Disposable foil liners are available that fit the catch pan.
WARNING: Check the bottom tray for grease buildup before each use. Remove excess grease to avoid a
grease fire in the bottom tray.
25
Periodic Cleaning
WARNING: Turn your Weber Gas Barbecue OFF and
wait for it to cool before cleaning.
CAUTION: Do not clean your Flavorizer Bars or
cooking grates in a self-cleaning oven. Replacement
cooking grates and Flavorizer Bars are available
through your retailer or the Weber-Stephen Customer
Service Center.
Outside surfaces - Use a warm soapy water solution.
CAUTION: Do not use oven cleaner, abrasive
cleansers (kitchen cleansers) cleaners that contain
citrus products or abrasive cleaning pads on barbecue
or cart surfaces.
Bottom tray - Remove excess grease and then wash with
warm soapy water.
Flavorizer Bars - Clean with a suitable brass bristle brush.
As needed, remove from grill and wash with warm soapy
water.
Catch pan - Disposable foil trays are available, or you can
line the catch pan with aluminum foil. To clean the catch
pan, wash with warm soapy water.
Thermometer - Wipe with warm soapy water, clean with
plastic scrub ball. Do not put in dishwasher or submerge in
water.
Inside cooking box - Brush any debris off of burners tubes.
DO NOT ENLARGE BURNER PORTS (OPENINGS). Wash
inside of cooking box with warm soapy water.
Inside Lid - While lid is warm, wipe inside with paper towel
to prevent flaking due to grease build-up.
26
Cast Iron Cooking Grates
Maintenance - Clean grates by turning on the barbecue
burner control knobs to HHH and wipe debris off with stiff
bristled wire brush. This should be done every time you
use the barbecue.
WARNING: Follow all safety instructions provided
with your barbecue. Do not drop cast iron grates, they
will break. Prior to storing, grease very lightly with
solid vegetable shortening or vegetable cooking spray,
then wipe dry with a paper towel. Store in a dry place.
Reseasoning - After each use the grates may be
reseasoned by coating with a solid vegetable shortening,
closing the lid and leaving the cast iron grates in grill until
it is cool.
First Time Use - Wash thoroughly with a mild dishwashing
liquid to remove the wax coating used for protection in
shipping. Rinse with hot water and dry completely with a soft
cloth or paper towel. NEVER ALLOW TO DRAIN DRY, OR
WASH IN A DISHWASHER. You must season the grates
before first use to prevent rust and keep foods from sticking.
A vegetable cooking spray may be used as a convenient
method for quick reseasoning.
Tips - The cast iron grates will turn black with use. The
pores of the iron will be sealed, providing a durable
coating that helps to prevent foods from sticking. The
grates will further season with use. Regular applications of
solid vegetable shortening or vegetable cooking spray will
improve its resistance to rust.
Seasoning Cast Iron Grates - A solid vegetable
shortening is recommended for the initial seasoning.
Spread a thin coating of solid vegetable shortening over
entire surface of the cast iron grates with a paper towel.
Be certain the entire surface, including all corners, has
been coated thoroughly. (Do not use salted fat such as
margarine or butter.)
Rust, a metallic taste or discolored foods are signs of
improper or inadequate seasoning or may result from
cooking acidic foods. If this occurs, wash thoroughly and
reseason.
Preheat grill for 10 minutes. Turn burners to MOM with lid
closed. Allow grill to heat for 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Turn all
burners to OFF. Leave cooking grates in barbecue until they
are cool. Your cast iron cooking grates are now ready to use.
Since cast iron holds heat well, you will not need to use
extremely high cooking temperatures. Best results are
obtained with medium to medium-high heat. Do not
overheat.
Important Note: To prevent rusting the cast iron
grates should be reseasoned frequently. If rust
occurs, clean with a steel wool scouring pad, rinse
with hot water and dry. Coat with a solid vegetable
shortening or a vegetable cooking spray and heat in
grill or oven as indicated above.
As with all cast iron, the more the use, the easier the
maintenance.
WARNING: Do not apply vegetable cooking spray to
a hot grate in a hot grill.

Safe handling tips for LP Gas
■
Liquid Propane (LP) Tank(s)
Liquid Propane (LP) gas is a petroleum product as are
gasoline and natural gas. LP gas is a gas at regular
temperatures and pressures. Under moderate
pressure, inside a cylinder, LP gas is a liquid. As the
pressure is released the liquid readily vaporizes and
becomes gas.
■
LP gas has an odor similar to natural gas. You should
know this odor.
■
LP gas is heavier than air. Leaking LP gas may collect
in low areas that prevent dispersion.
■
To fill, take the LP tank to an RV center, or look up
gas-propane in the phone book for other sources of
LP gas.
■
The LP tank and connections supplied with your
Weber Gas Barbecue have been designed and tested
to meet government, American Gas Association and
Underwriters Laboratories requirements.
■
Replacement LP tanks supplied by Weber satisfy the
requirements. Check to be sure the tank has a D.O.T.
certification, and has been tested within five years.
Your LP gas supplier can do this for you. Figure 7.
If you have questions about spare LP tanks, please
call Weber-Stephen Customer Service.
D.O.T. Certification (example)

WARNING: If you exchange your LP tank, make
sure you get a similar tank in return. Your LP tank is
equipped with a quick-disconnect valve and an OPD
(Overfilling Prevention Device). Other LP tanks are not
compatible with your barbecue connection.
■
Air must be removed from a new LP tank before the
initial filling. Your LP dealer is equipped to do this.
■
The LP tank must be installed, transported and stored
in an upright position. LP tanks should not be dropped
or handled roughly.
■
20 lb LP tank
Figure 7
Never store or transport the LP tank where temperatures
can reach 125° F (too hot to hold by hand - for example:
do not leave the LP tank in a car on a hot day).
Note - A refill will last about 20 hours of cooking time at
normal use. The fuel scale will indicate the propane
supply so you can refill before running out. You do not
have to run out before you refill.
■
Treat "empty" LP tanks with the same care as when
full. Even when the LP tank is empty of liquid there
still may be gas pressure in the cylinder. Always
close the tank valve before disconnecting.
■
Do not use a damaged LP tank. Dented or rusty LP
tanks or LP tanks with a damaged valve may be
hazardous and should be replaced with a new one
immediately.
■
The joint where the hose connects to the LP tank must
be leak tested each time the LP tank is reconnected.
For example, test each time the LP tank is refilled.
■
Be sure the regulator is mounted with the small vent
hole pointed downward so it will not collect water. This
vent should be free of dirt, grease, bugs etc.
Date Tested

General Maintenance
Main Burner Flame Pattern
Weber Spider Stopper Guards
The Weber Gas Barbecue burners have been factory set
for the correct air and gas mixture. The correct flame
pattern is shown in Figure 11.
Your Weber Gas Barbecue, as well as any outdoor gas
appliance, is a target for spiders and other insects. They
can nest in the venturi section of the burner tubes. This
blocks the normal gas flow, and can cause the gas to flow
back out of the air shutter. Figure 9. This could result in a
fire in and around the air shutters, under the control panel,
causing serious damage to your barbecue.
