Notice Before Installation
Contact your local municipality for any building codes regulating outdoor barbecue installations. In
absence of local codes, you must conform to the latest edition of ANSI Z223.1.
WE RECOMMEND THAT THIS INSTALLATION BE DONE BY A PROFESSIONAL.
General Specifications for
Piping
Steel pipe is not recommended for underground use
unless it is protected with an approved coating,
insulated from hose piping and cathodically protected.
It is recommended that copper tubing be corrosion
protected with a satisfactory material such as TC
Mastic.
All buried fittings should be corrosion protected with a
satisfactory material such as TC Mastic.
Underground piping must have a minimum of 10"
cover.
Plastic tubing
Plastic tubing is suitable only for outside underground
use.
■ The transition from metallic pipe to plastic pipe
should be made outside and at least 10"
underground.
■ When compression or crimp type mechanical
joints are used with plastic pipe, it is advisable to
use an internal rigid stiffener in conjunction with
the fitting.
■ The stiffener should be assembled flush with the
end of the tube and extend at least to the outside
edge of the compression fitting.
Testing connections
You will need a soap and water solution and a rag or
brush to apply it.
All connections and joints must be thoroughly tested
for leaks after gas has been turned into the line.
American National Standards Institute (ANSI)
Recommendations for gas supply installations:
Connections:
■
This barbecue is designed to operate at 7 inches
of water column pressure (.2526 psi).
■ A manual shut-off valve must be installed
outdoors, immediately ahead of any connections
or change in pipe material.
■ An additional manual shut-off valve indoors should
be installed in the branch fuel line in an accessible
location near the supply line.
■ The point of tie into the branch line should be
carefully selected to avoid a drip leg or be
downstream of a valve controlling another
appliance.
■ Pipe compound should be used which is resistant
to action of natural gas when connections are
made.
■ The outdoor connector must be firmly attached to
rigid, permanent construction.
Gas line piping
■ If the length of line required does not exceed 50
feet, use a 5/8" O.D. tube. One size larger should
be used for lengths greater than 50 feet.
■ Indoor and above ground piping can be steel or
copper.
Steel
New standard weight (Schedule 40) steel pipe with
malleable iron fittings.
Copper
New copper tubing type K or L.
Copper tubing must meet requirements of ASTM B88
latest edition.
Use flared fittings. Metallic ball sleeve compression
fittings must not be used.
Copper tube joints may be soldered or brazed with
material having a melting point in excess of 1,000°F.
Outside underground piping
Outside underground piping may be copper tubing,
type K or L (ASTM B88) or polyethylene plastic tube
PE3306 (Minimum wall thickness .062") meeting
ASTM 2513, latest specifications.
DANGER
Do not use an open flame to check for
gas leaks. Be sure there are no sparks
or open flames in the area while you
check for gas leaks. This will result in
a fire or explosion which can cause
serious bodily injury or death, and
damage to property.
Wet the fitting with a soap and water solution. Any
bubbles that form or grow indicate a leak. If bubbles
occur shut off gas, tighten the fitting, and retest.
WARNING: If a leak persists after tightening the
fitting, turn gas off at the supply. DO NOT
OPERATE YOUR BARBECUE. Contact WeberStephen Customer Service.

Cooking
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.
■
Keep the appliance area clear and free from
combustible materials, gasoline and other
flammable vapors and liquids.
CAUTION: 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 WeberStephen Customer Service Center.
Outside surfaces - Use a warm soapy water solution.
CAUTION: Replace thermometer in lid when not
in use. Do not leave thermometer in food while
cooking.
CAUTION: Do not use oven cleaner, abrasive
cleansers (kitchen cleansers) cleaners that contain
citrus products or abrasive cleaning pads on
barbecue or cart surfaces.
If burners go out during cooking, open lid, turn off
all burners and wait 5 minutes before relighting.
Bottom tray - Remove excess grease and then wash
with warm soapy water.
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.
Flavorizer Bars and Cooking Grates - 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.
Drippings and grease
Thermometer - Wipe with warm soapy water, clean
with plastic scrub ball. Do not put in dishwasher or
submerge in water.
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.
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.
CAUTION: Check the bottom tray for grease
build-up before each use. Remove excess grease
to avoid a grease fire in the bottom tray.
Inside Lid - While lid is warm, wipe inside with paper
towel to prevent flaking due to grease build-up.
Work tables and accessory trays - Use any
household cleaners on these surfaces except those that
contain acid, mineral spirits or Xylene. Rinse well after
cleaning.
After a Period of Nonuse
■
The Spider Stopper Guards should also be
checked for any obstructions. (See Section "Annual
Maintenance.")
Periodic Cleaning
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.

General Maintenance
Main Burner Flame Pattern
Weber Spider/Insect Screen
The Weber Gas Barbecue burners have been factory
set for the correct air and gas mixture. The correct
flame pattern is shown.
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.
This could result in a fire in and around the air
shutters, under the control panel, causing serious
damage to your barbecue.
