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.
Not for use by children.
■
If there are local codes that apply to portable gas
grills, you will have to conform to them. If there
are no local codes, you must conform to the
latest edition of the National Fuel Gas Code:
ANSI Z 223.1.
■
The valves and orifaces of this barbecue are set to
operate at 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 and orifices
are for LP gas only.
■
Do not use with charcoal fuel.
■
Check that the area under the control panel and the
bottom tray are free from debris that might obstruct
the flow of combustion or ventilation air.
■
The area around the LP tank must be free and clear
from debris.
■
When the Weber Gas Barbecue is stored indoors,
the gas supply must be disconnected.
WARNING: Only use this barbecue outdoors in a
well ventilated area. Do not use in a garage,
building, breezeway or any other enclosed area.
These instructions will give you the minimum
requirements for assembling your Weber Gas
Barbecue. Please read the instructions carefully
before using your Weber Gas Barbecue. Improper
assembly can be dangerous.
■
The gas must be turned OFF at the fuel supply
when the Weber Gas Barbecue is not in use.
Operating area
Liquid Propane (LP) gas supply is easy to use and gives
you more cooking control than charcoal fuel.
■
■

General Specifications for Piping
Inside wall
Note - Contact your local municipality for building
codes regulating outdoor gas 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.
Outside wall
Some of the following are general requirements taken
from ANSI Z223.1, for gas supply installations. Refer to
ANSI Z223.1 latest edition for complete specifications.
Quick Disconnect
Shut off
Locking shut off
Note: The LP gas supply at the barbecue must be
regulated to 10.5 inches of water column pressure.
■
A manual shut-off valve must be installed outdoors,
immediately ahead of the quick disconnect.
The quick disconnect is installed
above ground
CAUTION: If young children are in the area, a
locking valve should be considered.
■
■
■
Figure 14
An additional manual shut-off valve indoors should
be installed in the branch fuel line in an accessible
location near the supply line.
Gas line piping
The quick disconnect connects to a 3/8 inch NPT
thread from the gas source. The quick disconnect
fitting is a hand-operated device that automatically
shuts OFF the flow of gas from the source when the
barbecue is disconnected.
The quick disconnect fitting can be installed
horizontally, or pointing downward. Installing the
fitting with the open end pointing upward can result
in collecting water and debris.
■
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.
■
Gas piping may be copper tubing, type K or L;
polyethylene plastic tube, with a minimum wall
thickeness of .062 inch; or standard weight
(schedule 40) steel or wrought iron pipe.
■
Copper tubing must be tin-lined if the gas contains
more than 0.3 grams of hydrogen sulfide per 100
cubic feet of gas.
■
Plastic tubing is suitable only for outdoor,
underground use.
■
The dust covers (supplied plastic plugs) help keep
the open ends of the quick disconnect fitting clean
while disconnected.
■
■
Pipe compound should be used which is resistant to
the action of propane gas when connections are
made.
Gas piping in contact with earth, or any other
material which may corrode the piping, must be
protected against corrosion in an approved manner.
■
The outdoor connector must be firmly attached to
rigid, permanent construction.
Underground piping must have a minimum of
18" cover.
Test connections
■
All connections and joints must be thoroughly tested for
leaks in accordance with local codes and all listed
procedures in the latest edition of ANSI Z223.1.
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.

Cooking
Storage and/or Nonuse
The Weber Genesis Gas Barbecue should not be
moved when operating or hot.
■
When storing the Weber Gas Barbecue, make sure
that the inside shut off valve and/or locking outdoor
shut off valve is secured in the OFF postion. When
the Weber Gas Barbecue is stored indoors, the gas
supply MUST BE DISCONNECTED.
■
After a period of storage and/or nonuse the Weber
Gas Grill 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.")
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.
If burners go out during cooking, open lid, turn off
all burners and wait 5 minutes before relighting.
Note - The temperatures inside your cooking box, for the
first few uses, may be hotter than those shown in your
cookbook. Adjusting the burner controls may be
necessary.
Periodic Cleaning
CAUTION: Replace thermometer in lid when not in
use. Do not leave thermometer in food while cooking.
CAUTION: Turn your Weber Gas Barbecue OFF
and wait for it to cool before cleaning.
Preheating
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.
Your Weber Genesis 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.
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.
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.
Bottom tray - Wash with warm soapy water.
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.
Thermometer - Wipe with warm soapy water, clean with
plastic scrub ball. Do not put in dishwasher or submerge
in water.
Inside cooking box - Brush with a suitable barbecue
brush (brass bristle). Brush any debris off of burners with
barbecue brush. DO NOT ENLARGE BURNER PORTS
(OPENINGS). Wash inside box with warm soapy water.
Inside Lid - While lid is warm, wipe inside with paper
towel to prevent flaking due to grease build-up.
31
Using the Steam-N-Chips
Smoker
The Steam-N-Chips Smoker cooks with both Weber
FireSpice Wood Chips and Chunks. For best results with
faster cooking foods like steaks, burgers and chops, etc.,
we recommend using the FireSpice Chips because they
ignite and create smoke faster. For longer cooking foods
such as roasts, chicken and turkeys, etc., we recommend
using FireSpice Chunks because they ignite slowly and
provide smoke for a longer period of time. As you gain
experience in using your Steam-N-Chips Smoker, we
encourage you to experiment with different combinations
of FireSpice Chips and Chunks to find the smoke flavor
that best suits your taste.
DANGER Do not use any flammable fluid in the
Steam-N-Chips Smoker to ignite the wood.
This will cause serious bodily injury.
Cleaning the Steam-N-Chips Smoker
Before each use, empty the Steam-N-Chips Smoker of
ash to allow proper air flow. Accomplish this by lightly
tapping the sides of the smoker and stirring the ashes so
that they sift through the bottom and fall into the bottom
tray of your barbecue. Remove bottom tray and empty.
To use the Steam-N-Chips Smoker
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 Steam-N-Chips
Smoker. To a lesser degree a "smoke" residue will
accumulate on the inside of your Weber Genesis Gas
Barbecue. This residue need not be removed and will
not adversely affect the function of your Weber Genesis
Gas Barbecue.
As a starting point, place a handful of FireSpice Chips or
a few FireSpice Chunks in the bottom of the smoker body.
Figure 4. Since the chunks vary in size, place as many as
you can in the smoker allowing room for the water pan.
As you gain experience in smoking, increase or decrease
the amount of wood to suit your taste. Fill water pan,
place it in the smoker and close the smoker lid.

Light the barbecue and preheat with all burners on HIGH,
lid down, for 10 minutes or until thermometer registers
500°F - 550°F. Adjust the burners for cooking; MOM or
LOL will be your best settings for long duration smoking.
Smoke will start in approximately 10 minutes and last as
long as 45 minutes. If you require more smoke flavor,
refill the smoker with FireSpice Chips and/or Chunks and
refill the water pan with water. The Steam-N-Chips
Smoker may be used to enhance any of the meat,
poultry and fish recipes in the gas barbecue cookbook.
Cook with the lid down according to the times indicated in
charts or recipes.
Note - After refilling smoker, smoke will take about 10 to
15 minutes to start again.

General Maintenance
Weber Spider Stopper Guards
Main Burner Flame Pattern
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 6. This
could result in a fire in and around the air shutters,
under the control panel, causing serious damage to
your barbecue.
The Weber Gas Barbecue burners have been factory set
for the correct air and gas mixture. The correct flame
pattern is shown in Figure 8.

Figure 8
The Weber Spider Stopper Guard is factory installed. It
fits tightly around the air shutter section of the burner
tube and the valve, thereby preventing spiders and other
insects access to the burner tubes through the air
shutter openings. Figure 7.
If the flames do not appear to be uniform the length of the
burner tube, follow the burner cleaning procedures.

FlameCheck Safety System
Reinstall the Spider Stopper Guards. Slightly rotate
the Spider Stopper Guards so that the seams are in
line with the Venturi fins. There should be no gaps
in the seams or in the fit around the burners and
valves. Figure 16.
The correct positioning of the thermocouple probe is
shown in Figure 18. The tip of the probe is positioned in
the flame. The probe senses the heat from the Front
burner, and activates the FlameCheck valve. The valve
allows the gas to flow into the Front burner. If the Front
burner should go out for any reason, the thermocouple
probe will cool off, thereby closing the FlameCheck valve,
which stops the gas flow to the burners.
If the FlameCheck Safety System should fail to operate,
contact your dealer.
