closed until fire is out.
Do not enlarge valve orifices or burner ports when cleaning
the valves or burners.
The Weber® gas barbecue should be thoroughly cleaned on
a regular basis.
Liquid propane gas is not natural gas. The conversion or

state of California to cause cancer, birth defects or other
reproductive harm.
(Wash hands after handling this product.) X
LIQUID PROPANE GAS UNITS ONLY:
Use the pressure regulator and hose assembly that is
supplied with your Weber® gas barbecue.
Do not attempt to disconnect the gas regulator and hose
assembly or any gas fitting while your barbecue is in
operation.
A dented or rusty liquid propane cylinder may be hazardous

not use a liquid propane cylinder with a damaged valve.
Although your liquid propane cylinder may appear to be
empty, gas may still be present, and the cylinder should be
transported and stored accordingly.

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS
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 natural gas supply is easy to use and gives you more cooking control than charcoal
fuel.

FLAVORIZER® SYSTEM
When meat juices drip from the food onto the specially angled Flavorizer® bars,
they create smoke that gives foods an irresistible barbecued flavor. Thanks to the
unique design of the burners, Flavorizer® bars, and the flexible temperature controls,
uncontrolled flare-ups are virtually eliminated, because YOU control the flames. Because
of the special design of the Flavorizer® bars and burners, excess fats are directed
through the slide-out grease tray into the grease catch pan. X
SEAR STATION®
Your Weber® gas barbecue may include a sear burner for searing thin meats and fish.
The Sear Station® burner has an ON or OFF control setting (2) that works with the two
adjacent main burners. With the sear and adjacent burners you can effectively sear
meats while using other cooking areas for cooking with moderate heat (refer to “SEAR
STATION® IGNITION & USAGE”). X

If burners go out during cooking, turn off all burners and wait five minutes before
relighting. X
PREHEATING
Your Weber® gas barbecue is an energy-efficient appliance. It operates at an economical
low BTU rate. Preheating the grill before grilling is important. Light your grill according
to the instructions in this Owner’s Manual. To preheat: After lighting, turn all burners to
START/HI, close the lid, and heat until the temperature reaches between 500°F and
550° F (260°C and 290°C), the recommended broiling temperature. This will take 10 to
15 minutes depending on conditions such as air temperature and wind. X
COVERED COOKING
All grilling is done with the lid down to provide uniform, evenly circulated heat. With the
lid closed, the gas grill cooks much like a convection oven. The thermometer in the lid
indicates the cooking temperature inside the grill. All preheating and grilling is done with
the lid down. No peeking — heat is lost every time you lift the lid. X
DRIPPINGS AND GREASE
The Flavorizer® bars are designed to “smoke” the correct amount of drippings for
flavorful cooking. Excess drippings and grease will accumulate in the catch pan under
the slide-out grease tray. Disposable foil drip pans are available that fit the catch pan.
WARNING: Check the slide-out grease tray and catch pan
for grease build-up before each use. Remove excess grease
to avoid a grease fire in the slide-out grease tray. X
WWW.WEBER.COM®

COOKING METHODS
The most important thing to know about grilling is which cooking method to use for a
specific food, direct or indirect. The difference is simple: place the food directly over the
fire, or arrange the fire on either side of it. Using the right method is the shortest route to
great results—and the best way to ensure doneness safety. X
6 BURNER
DIRECT COOKING
The direct method, similar to broiling, means the food is cooked directly over the heat
source. For even cooking, food should be turned once halfway through the grilling time.
Use the direct method for foods that take less than 25 minutes to cook: steaks, chops,
kabobs, sausages, vegetables, and more.
Direct cooking is also necessary to sear meats. Searing creates that wonderful crisp,
caramelized texture where the food touches the grate. It also adds great color and flavor
to the entire surface. Steaks, chops, chicken breasts, and larger cuts of meat all benefit
from searing.
To sear meats, place them over direct high heat for two to five minutes per side. Smaller
pieces require less searing time. Usually after searing the food, you finish cooking it at a
lower temperature. You can finish cooking fast-cooking foods by the direct method; use
the indirect method for longer-cooking foods.
To set up your gas grill for direct cooking, preheat the grill with all burners on HI. Place
food on the cooking grate, and then adjust all burners to the temperature noted in the
recipe. Close the lid of the grill and lift it only to turn food or to test for doneness at the
end of the recommended cooking time. X
DIRECT METHOD
Food is placed on the area of the cooking grates directly over the lit burner.
6 BURNER
INDIRECT COOKING
The indirect method is similar to roasting, but with the added benefits of that grilled
texture, flavor, and appearance you can’t get from cooking with an oven. To set up for
indirect cooking, light gas burners on either side of the food but not directly beneath it.
Heat rises, reflects off the lid and inside surfaces of the grill, and circulates to slowly
cook the food evenly on all sides, much like a convection oven, so there’s no need to
turn the food.
Use the indirect method for foods that require 25 minutes or more of grilling time, or that
are so delicate that direct exposure to the flame would dry them out or scorch them.
Examples include roasts, ribs, whole chickens, turkeys, and other large cuts of meat, as
well as delicate fish fillets.
To set up your gas grill for indirect cooking, preheat the grill with all burners on HI. Then
adjust the burners on each side of the food to the temperature noted in the recipe, and
turn off the burner(s) directly below the food. For best results, place roasts, poultry, or
large cuts of meat on a roasting rack set inside a disposable, heavy-gauge foil pan.
For longer cooking times, add water to the foil pan to keep drippings from burning. The
drippings can be used to make gravies or sauces. X

Food is placed on the area of the cooking grates between the lit burners.

SEAR METHOD
Food is placed in the area of intense heat between the lit burners.
USING THE SEAR STATION®
Your Weber® gas barbecue includes a sear burner for searing meats such as steak,
poultry parts, fish, and chops.
Searing is a direct grilling technique which browns the surface of the food at a high
temperature. By searing or browning both sides of the meat, you will create a more
desirable flavor by caramelizing the food surface. Searing will also enhance appearance
of the meat with sear marks from the cooking grates. This, along with the contrast of
textures and flavors, can make food more interesting to the palate.
The Sear Station® burner has an on or off control setting that works with the two
adjacent main burners. With the sear and adjacent burners, you can effectively sear
meats while using other cooking areas for grilling with moderate heat.
Before searing food, you should turn all of the main burners on HI for 15 minutes to
preheat the grill. Note: Always grill with the lid closed to allow for maximum heat and to
avoid flare-ups.
Once the grill is preheated, turn the outer burners off or down to low. Leave the center
two burners on HI and ignite the Sear Station® burner.
Place the meat directly over the Sear Station®. You will sear each side anywhere from
one to four minutes, depending on the type and thickness of the meat. You may turn the
food a quarter turn to make crossing sear marks (1) before you sear the other side in the
same manner.
Once you are done searing the meat, you can finish grilling it by moving it to a more
moderate heat over the outside burners to achieve the desired doneness.
As you gain experience in using your Sear Station®, we encourage you to experiment
with different searing times to find results that work best for your taste. X

SMOKER BURNER IGNITION & USAGE
USING THE SMOKER
The smoker uses presoaked wood chips. For best results with faster cooking foods like
steaks, burgers, and chops, etc., we recommend using finer wood chips because they
ignite and create smoke faster. For longer cooking foods such as roasts, chicken, and
turkeys, etc., we recommend using larger wood chunks because they ignite slowly and
provide smoke for a longer period of time. As you gain experience in using your smoker,
we encourage you to experiment with different combinations of wood chips and chunks
to find the smoke flavor that best suits your taste.
1
As a starting point, soak wood chips in water for at least 30 minutes before using. (Wet
wood will produce more smoke flavor.) Place a handful of wood chips or a few larger
chunks in the bottom of the smoker body (1). As you gain experience in smoking,
increase or decrease the amount of wood to suit your taste.
Note: Always grill with the lid closed to allow the smoke to fully penetrate the food. Light
the smoker burner by following the instructions for “SMOKER BURNER IGNITION.”
After wood starts to smolder, turn control knob to LOW.
Smoke will start in approximately 10 minutes and last as long as 45 minutes. If you
require more smoke flavor, refill the smoker with wood chips and/or chunks. Keep the lid
of the grill closed while cooking.
Note: After refilling smoker, smoke will take about 10 to 15 minutes to start again. The
smoker may be used to enhance meat, poultry, and fish recipes. Cook with the lid down
according to the times indicated in charts or recipes.
DANGER
Do not use any flammable fluid in the smoker to ignite the
wood. This will cause serious bodily injury. X
CLEANING THE SMOKER
Before each use, empty the smoker of ash to allow proper air flow.
Note: Smoking will leave a “smoke” residue on the surface of the smoker. This residue
cannot be removed and will not affect the function of the smoker. To a lesser degree, a
“smoke” residue will accumulate on the inside of your gas grill. This residue need not be
removed and will not adversely affect the function of your gas grill. X

MAINTENANCE
CLEANING
WEBER® SPIDER/INSECT SCREENS
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.
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 (1) of the burner tubes. This
blocks the normal gas flow, and can cause the gas to flow back out of the combustion air
opening. This could result in a fire in and around the combustion air openings, under the
control panel, causing serious damage to your barbecue.
Outside surfaces — Use a warm soapy water solution to clean, then rinse with water.
The burner tube combustion air opening is fitted with a stainless steel screen (2) to
prevent spiders and other insects access to the burner tubes through the combustion air
openings.
CAUTION: Do not use oven cleaner, abrasive cleansers
(kitchen cleansers), cleaners that contain citrus products, or
abrasive cleaning pads on barbecue or cart surfaces.
Slide-out grease tray — Remove excess grease, wash with warm soapy water, then
rinse.
CAUTION: Do not line the slide-out grease tray with
aluminum foil.
Flavorizer® bars and cooking grates — Clean with a suitable stainless steel bristle
brush. As needed, remove from grill and wash with warm soapy water, then rinse with
water.
For availability of replacement cooking grates and Flavorizer® bars, contact the
Customer Service Representative in your area using the contact information on
our website. Log onto www.weber.com®.
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, then rinse.
We recommend that you inspect the spider/insect screens at least once a year.
(Refer to “ANNUAL MAINTENANCE.”) Also inspect and clean the the spider/insect
screens if any of the following symptoms should ever occur:
A)
B)
C)
D)
Gas is smelled in conjunction with burner flames that appear yellow and lazy.

DANGER
Failure to correct the above mentioned symptoms may result
in a fire, which can cause serious bodily injury or death, and
cause damage to property. X
Thermometer — Wipe with warm soapy water; clean with plastic scrub ball.
1
Cookbox — Brush any debris off of burner tubes. DO NOT ENLARGE BURNER PORTS
(OPENINGS). Wash inside of cookbox with warm soapy water and a water rinse.
Inside lid — While lid is warm, wipe inside with paper towel to prevent grease build-up.
Flaking built-up grease resembles paint flakes.
Stainless steel surfaces — Wash with a soft cloth and a soap and water solution. Be
careful to scrub with the grain direction of the stainless steel.
Do not use cleaners that contain acid, mineral spirits, or xylene. Rinse well after
cleaning.
2
Preserve your stainless steel — Your grill or its cabinet, lid, and control panel may be
made from stainless steel. Keeping the stainless steel looking its best is a simple matter.
Clean it with soap and water, rinse with clear water, and wipe dry. For stubborn particles,
a non-metallic brush can be used.
IMPORTANT: Do not use a wire brush or abrasive cleaners
on the stainless steel surfaces of your grill as this will cause
scratches.
IMPORTANT: When cleaning surfaces be sure to rub/wipe
in the direction of the grain to preserve the look of your
stainless steel. X
