Propane Cylinder Safety
Connection Requirements
Liquid Propane (LP) gas has a long history of safe use
when the safety precautions provided in this manual are
followed.
Caution: Never use Liquid Propane (LP) gas in a
grill designed for Natural gas, or Natural gas in a grill
designed for Liquid Propane gas. Questions regarding different types of gases should be directed to your
local gas supplier.
Failure to follow these safety precautions could result
in a fire or explosion causing property damage or

that has been dropped, dented, or otherwise damaged must
be replaced.
A propane gas cylinder should never be transported in the
passenger area of a vehicle.
Keep cylinders out of direct sunlight and never apply any
other source of direct heat to them.
When refilling your cylinder, always insist on a reputable,
qualified gas dealer. Your propane gas cylinder is filled by
weight, and should never exceed eighty (80%) percent of
its weight limit. If the cylinder is not completely empty,
the gas dealer must make necessary adjustments to ensure
it is not overfilled. Never use an overfilled Propane gas
cylinder.
Installation must conform to local codes or, in the absence
of local codes, with the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI
Z223.1. In Canada, installation shall be in accordance
with CAN/CGA-B149.2 Propane Installation Code, or
CAN/CGA-B149.1 Natural Gas Installation Code, and
local codes where applicable. Consult your local gas
supplier or propane gas dealer for code regulations and
recommended procedures.
Warning: Broilmaster® Deluxe Gas Grills require Liquid Propane (LP) cylinders equipped with an Overfill
Protection Device (OPD). An overfilled or improperly
filled Propane cylinder can be dangerous.
Always use the pressure regulator and hose assembly supplied with your Propane gas grill.
Note: Not all valve and cylinder combinations are compatible. Check warning tag on valve and cylinder as well
as external fitting threads.
All Broilmaster® pressure regulators and hose assemblies
require Propane cylinders with a Type 1 connection device
as illustrated. Figure 9.
Cylinder Storage
Your grill must be stored outdoors in a well ventilated area
if the cylinder is attached to it.
Disconnected cylinders must have a threaded valve plug
tightly installed and must not be stored in any building,
garage, or other enclosed area.
Flammable materials (gasoline, grill covers, etc.) must not
be stored in the cylinder enclosure.
Always store Propane cylinders in a secured upright position, out of the reach of children.

PROPANE GAS GRILLS
Pressure Regulator and Hose
Assembly
The pressure regulator has an outlet pressure of not more
than eleven (11") inches water column. It must be connected to the Propane gas cylinder’s female valve outlet
before the grill can be operated.
Caution: Operation of a Propane gas grill without the
pressure regulator and hose assembly will cause gas
leaks which could lead to fire or explosion, resulting
in property damage or personal injury.
Connecting to Propane Gas
(Continued)
Attach the pressure regulator to the Propane gas cylinder’s
valve using the plastic handwheel. Tighten in a clockwise
motion to achieve a gas tight seal. Figure 11.
Caution: Do not use a wrench or any other tool to
tighten. Use of a wrench or other tool will damage the
plastic handwheel.
The pressure regulator’s fitting must remain clean and
free of nicks and scratches. A dirty, nicked or scratched
fitting can cause a gas leak, resulting in an explosion or
fire. Use only genuine Broilmaster® replacement parts
unless otherwise specified by the manufacturer.

Operation - Propane & Natural Grills
Before Cooking
Electrical Accessories
Before cooking on a grill for the first time, it should be
broken in to burn off any oil residue from the manufacturing
process.
If an electrical accessory (e.g. rotisserie) is used on your
grill, the accessory must be electrically grounded in
accordance with local codes or, in the absence of local
codes, with the National Electric Code, ANSI/NFPA 70.
In Canada, the electrical accessory must be electrically
grounded in accordance with the applicable section of the
current Canadian Electrical Code, CSA C22.1.
1. Raise the grill lid.
2. Light grill burner.
3. Burn on HI for ten minutes.
4. Close the lid and burn on HI for an additional ten
minutes.
5. Turn OFF gas. The grill is now ready for use.
Preheating
Before cooking on a gas grill, allow the grill to preheat on
HI for 5 minutes with the lid closed.
This uses very little fuel and hot briquette cook quicker
and provide better flavor.
Any electrical accessory should be equipped with a threeprong (grounding) plug, and plugged into a properly
grounded three-prong receptacle or wall outlet. Do not
cut or remove the grounding prong from the plug.
If an extension cord is required, use only a three-prong

Maintenance
Cleaning the Grill
Caution: To prevent injury, use care when cleaning
a hot grill.
Note: Do not use a commercial cleaner on the cooking
grid. Do not brush grids while they are hot. Do not
scrape grids.
For baked on residue use a brass (NOT STEEL) brush on
the cooking grid and other components.
Burn Off
This process is much like that used in self-cleaning ovens
and is most efficient when completed after each use of
the grill.
Caution: Do not open the grill during the burn off
process. Opening the grill during the burn off process
may cause a sudden grease fire flare up that could burn
your face and arms. Wait until the grill has cooled
before opening.
1. Turn gas knob to HI. Close lid and allow the grill to
burn for ten minutes, or until no smoke is present. Do
not allow the grill to burn for more than 30 minutes.
2. Turn gas knob and supply to OFF and allow the grill
to cool.
3. Wipe COOL grill with a damp cloth to remove soot.
Venturi Tubes
The venturi tubes allow air and gas to mix prior to
burning, thus ensuring an efficient flame. Spiders or other
small insects may build webs or nests inside the tubes
obstructing air flow. Fire, or flashback, can occur, in and/or
around obstructed venturi tubes and can cause damage to
components beneath the grill or an unsafe condition. To
reduce risk, inspections and cleaning should be performed
at least twice monthly when spiders are active. If the grill
has been unused for an extended period of time inspect
the tubes before using the grill.
Clean venturi tubes as follows:
1. Remove the cooking grids and briquette rack.
2. Remove the burner from the grill.
3. Lay the burner face down and remove the four retaining
screws from the venturi tube plate and the burner.
Figure 16.
4. Use a small flexible brush to remove any debris for the
tube(s).
5. Flush with water.
6. Allow the tube(s)
to dry before
reinstalling.
7. R e i n s t a l l t h e
venturi tubes and
burner.
Grill Bottom
L
Periodically remove cooking grids and flare guard to clean
the interior of the grill. Scrape off baked on residue with
a putty knife or brass brush and rinse with water. Clean
the bottom air holes with a small knife.
Stainless steel burners often turn reddish brown after use.
This does not effect the performance of the grill. When
cleaning the interior of the grill, remove the burners and
clean with a brass brush. Wash with water and a mild
detergent.
Grease Tray
Empty periodically. Replacement tray liners can be
purchased at most supermarkets where disposable
aluminum baking pans are displayed.

Exterior
Clean regularly with a solution of mild detergent and
hot water. Touch-up paint is available from your dealer.
Broilmaster® protective covers are recommended. Stainless steel components can be easily cleaned with a spray-on
stainless steel cleaner found in most hardware stores.
Briquettes
If the briquettes did not come clean during burn off, after
cooling turn them over. The residue will burn off during
warm-up for the next use.
