UNLOADING THE SMOKER
Smokers Shipped via Common Carrier
Remove the crated smoker from the truck using the appropriate forklift. Note any damage to the crate, smoker
or accessories. Do not sign the delivery bill until the smoker has been inspected and any damage noted
on the delivery bill.
The smoker is shipped strapped to a wooden pallet with an industrial cardboard carton. Once the smoker is in
a level and safe place remove the cardboard carton and open the product loading door. Plastic zip ties secure a
cardboard box to one of the product racks of the smoker. Remove the cardboard box from the product rack.
Cardboard covers protect each product rack during shipment. Remove the cardboard protectors from each
product rack. Located on top of the wooden pallet are two (2) wooden ramps. Fasten the ramps to the edge of
the wooden pallet using the metal clasps located on the end of the pallet and ramps. The smoker is secured to
the wooden pallet with metal banding straps. A 2 x 4 prevents the smoker from moving. After removing the
banding straps securing the smoker to the wooden pallet and the 2 x 4 (with a Phillips screwdriver), release the
brakes on each of the smokers casters. Then the smoker can be slowly and carefully rolled down the ramps
secured to the pallet.
Smokers Shipped via Contract Hauler
The driver will unload the smoker from the trailer. Once the smoker is in a level and safe place remove the
white protective wrap from the outside of the smoker and open the product loading door. Plastic zip ties secure a cardboard box to one of the product racks of the smoker. Remove the cardboard box from the product
rack. Cardboard covers protect each product rack during shipment. Remove the cardboard protectors from
each product rack.
UNPACKING THE SMOKER
The 6” drain pan inside the smoker contains the following items:

Sample seasoning and sauces. Bulk sizes are available. Please contact your authorized Southern Pride distributor for additional information.

GAS PIPING INSTRUCTIONS
IMPORTANT NOTES TO THE INSTALLER

Read all instructions contained in this Owner’s Manual before making gas connections.

Ensure all packing material is removed from the smoker compartments before connecting the gas supply to
the smoker.

Be sure your smoker is installed and grounded properly by a qualified service technician.

Observe all governing codes and ordinances.
WARNING: IMPROPER GAS HOOKUP WILL VOID WARRANTY AND COULD RESULT IN A
HAZARDOUS CONDITION.
1. All local and national codes and ordinances must be observed. Installation must conform with local codes
or in the absence of codes, the National Fuel Gas Code ANSI Z223.1 / NFPA-54, latest edition available
from The American Gas Association, Inc., 1515 Wilson Boulevard, Arlington, VA 22209.
2. The gas supply (service) line must be the same size or greater than the inlet line of the appliance. This
smoker uses a 1/2” (1.3 cm) ID NPT (Sch40) inlet. Sealant on all pipe joints must be resistive to LP gas.
3. Supply line and manifold pressure should be checked with a manometer. Refer to page 16 for minimum
and maximum pressures. Incoming line pressure upstream from the regulator must be 1” W.C.P. higher
than the manifold pressure in order to check the regulator. The regulator used on this smoker can withstand
a maximum input pressure of 1/2” PSI (14.0” W.C.P.). Over pressuring the valve may cause damage to the
valve. If the line pressure is in excess of that amount, a step down regulator will be required.
4. It is recommended new pipe be used and located so that a minimum amount of work will be required in
future servicing. The piping should be so installed as to be durable, substantial, and gas tight. It should be
free from cutting burrs and defects in structure and threading. Cast iron fittings or aluminum tubing should
not be used for the main gas circuit. Joint compounds (pipe dope) should be used sparingly on male threads
only and be approved for all gases.
NOTE: The building structure should not be weakened by installation of the gas piping. The piping
should not be supported by other piping, but should be firmly supported by pipe hooks, straps, bands,
or hangers. Butt or lap welded pipe should not be bent.
5. TEST PIPING FOR LEAKS. Before turning gas under pressure into piping, all openings from which gas
can escape must be closed. Immediately after turning on gas, the system should be checked for leaks. This
can be done by watching the 1/2 cubic foot test dial for 5 minutes to show any movement, or by soaping
each pipe connection and watching for bubbles. If a leak is found, make the necessary repairs and repeat
the above test.
NOTE: Defective pipes or fittings should be replaced and not repaired. Never use a flame or fire of
any form to locate gas leaks, use a soap solution.
6. After the piping and meter have been checked completely, PURGE THE SYSTEM OF AIR. DO NOT
bleed the air inside the smoker. Be sure to relight all the gas pilots on other appliances.
NOTE: The burner and its individual shutoff valve must be disconnected from the gas supply piping
system during any pressure testing in excess of 1/2 psig.

OPERATION
The smoker should be operated in the following order (with all operations according to the subsequent instructions):
1. Load the product into the smoker and close the product loading doors.
2. Place the desired wood into the firebox and close the firebox door.
3. Ensure that the drain pan is empty and installed in the pan rails located under the smoker drain hole.
4. Set the control and start the cook cycle.
5. Once the cook cycle is complete, turn the control off.
6. Remove the product from the smoker.
7. Remove the ashes from the firebox.
8. Empty the grease from the grease pan.
PRODUCT LOADING INSTRUCTIONS
The smoker is equipped with seven (7), 18” x 26” product racks in its standard configuration for the loading of
product. The modular designed rack slide system has 1.5” spacing that allows the smoker to hold up to 27
product racks at one time.
1. Remove the wire product rack from the smoker.
2. Place the product directly on the product rack, leaving an air gap between each piece of product.
3. With the product placed on the rood rack, carefully slide the loaded product rack into the smoker starting
from the bottom rack slide position.
4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 until all product is loaded into the smoker. Product height will determine how many
rack slide spaces you need to advance to maintain an air gap between each loaded product rack.

FIREBOX LOADING INSTRUCTIONS
1. The solid fuel should be handled in accordance with NFPA® 96.
2. Ensure the control is OFF, or in the Idle or Pause position, before opening the firebox door.
3. Use 1-3 logs, 3-5 inches in diameter, 10-12 inches long. Use green or slightly seasoned hardwoods, fruitwoods, or charcoal (not to exceed six pounds). THE WOOD OR CHARCOAL IS ONLY USED TO
FLAVOR THE PRODUCT, NOT TO HEAT THE SMOKER.
4. Be sure to keep the wood 4” from the burner or ashes can accumulate on the burner and cause it to not
work properly.
5. Place the logs on top and inline with each other to minimize air flow around each log. This will help promote a smoldering, slow burn, which maximizes smoke.
6. The wood does not have to be lit manually; the smoker is equipped with a gas burner that will light the
wood. Combustible or flammable liquids shall not be used to assist ignition.
7. Tightly close the firebox door to prevent air from being pulled into the firebox.
8. If the cook menu was paused, a press of the start button is required to resume the menu..
CAUTION:

Remove coals and ashes from previous cook cycle before loading new wood
into the firebox. Refer to Ash Removal Instructions on page 23.

Do not use dry wood or kindling.

Do not overload firebox. Too much wood or charcoal can cause overheating
of the smoker. Keep wood at least 4 inches from the burner.

Do not allow ashes in or near the burner opening.

MOBILE SMOKER WARNINGS (continued)
LP GAS (continued)
7. Before each use, inspect the gas hose. If excessive abrasion, wear or if the hose is cut it must be replaced
prior to the smoker being put into operation.
8. LEAK TESTING: Do not use a flame to check for a gas leak. To prevent fire or explosion hazard, DO
NOT smoke or allow any potential source of ignition (sparks, electrical arcing, etc.) in the area while performing a leak test. Leak tests should be conducted outdoors only.
a. Create a soapy solution of 1 part soap and 1 part water, or use a gas leak detector solution available
for purchase from a plumbing supply or hardware store. Confirm that all control knobs are in the off
position.
b. Open the gas supply valves and apply the soap solution generously by paint brush or squirt bottle on
all connections and fittings. If bubbles appear to “grow” on any of the connections, you have a gas
leak, immediately turn off the gas supply.
9. Fixing a gas leak: Wash off the soapy solution with cold water and dry. Tighten the loose joint, or replace
the faulty part with manufacturer-recommended replacement parts.
10. Do not attempt to repair the LP cylinder valve if it is damaged. The only way to safely resolve a damaged
cylinder is to replace it.
11. Repeat the leak test to ensure that no leaks are present.
12. Do not operate the smoker if there is a gas leak present.
13. Leaking gas may cause a fire or explosion which can cause serious bodily injury or death.
14. When not in use, the gas valve on the LP tanks must be turned off and the supply line disconnected from
the tanks. The protective dust cap must be installed on the valve outlet.
15. Liquid propane is not natural gas. The conversion to or attempted use of natural gas in a liquid propane
smoker is dangerous and will void your warranty.
16. Do not attempt to disconnect any gas fitting while your smoker is in operation.
17. Although your liquid propane cylinder may appear to be empty, gas may still be present. The cylinder
should be transported and stored with the valve closed.

On mobile smokers, turn off LP gas.

If the smoker is HOT from use, allow adequate time for it to cool down (approximately 1 hour).

After the smoker exterior has been washed, apply a stainless steel polish cleaner to all surfaces.

Wipe control panel, door handles, and door gaskets thoroughly, since these areas harbor food debris.

Do not use scotch bright pads or scouring pads to clean the outside of your smoker. If a nonabrasive scouring pad must be used, make certain to scrub with the visible grain of the surface metal
to avoid scratches.
Caution: Some cleaning products are not suitable for stainless steel; be sure to read the label before use.

TROUBLESHOOTING THE GAS BURNER
WARNING:
Gas burners require an experienced technician for proper service and adjustment.
If the burner does not appear to be operating properly, DO NOT ATTEMPT TO
ADJUST THE BURNER YOURSELF, but call in a competent service technician.
GAS BURNER SEQUENCE OF OPERATION
It is very important to know the sequence of operation when troubleshooting the burner. The below steps describe the cycle for ignition in the sequence of operation for the burner.
1. The smoker is powered on with the desired cooking temperature set.
2. At a call for heat from the thermostat, 120 volts of power go through the thermostat, the high limit switch,
and on to the burner.
3. The power comes into the burner at the junction box, which is located on top of the blower motor; 120
volts AC go to the primary side of the 24 volt AC step down transformer and to the combustion motor and
the combustion motor comes on.
4. The step down transformer sends 24 volts AC out to the centrifugal switch on the blower motor.
5. When the blower motor is powered up and reaches full speed, the centrifugal switch (located on the end of
the motor) is activated, sending 24 volts through it and on to the ignition control module.
6. When 24 volts reaches the ignition control module, it sends a high voltage spark out to the electrode
(igniter) to light the pilot flame, and at the same time, it sends 24 volts to open the pilot valve on the main
gas valve.
7. After the pilot lights, the electrode (igniter) acts as a flame sensor sending a DC micro amp signal back to
the control module that there is a pilot flame, then the ignition control module sends out 24 volts AC to
open the main valve.
8. The pilot flame lights the flow of gas from the main valve and the burner will fire until the call for heat
from the thermostat has been satisfied, shutting the burner down.
NOTE: The burner is equipped with a ignition module that has a 3-try for ignition sequence.
