CONNECTING THE LP TANK
WARNING
WARNING
•
Do not store tanks under or near the smoker.
•
Never fill tanks more than 80% full.
ALL INSTRUCTIONS AND SAFEGUARDS ON THIS PAGE
MUST BE FOLLOWED TO PREVENT FIRE, DAMAGE,
AND / OR INJURY.
1. The knob on the LP tank must be closed. See that the
knob is turned clockwise to a full stop.
2. Check that control knob on the smoker is turned off.
3. Remove the protective cap from the LP tank valve and
coupling nut, if present.
4. Hold the regulator in one hand and insert the nipple into
the valve outlet. Be sure the nipple is centered in the
valve outlet. The coupling nut connects to the large
outside threads on the valve outlet.
Note: Use care - do not cross thread the connection.
5. Hand tighten the coupling nut clockwise until it comes to
a full stop. Firmly tighten by hand only. Do not use tools.
If the two previous statements above are not followed
exactly, a fire causing death or serious injury may
occur.
•
This smoker is designed to operate on LP (Liquefied
Propane) gas only.
•
DO NOT leave the smoker unattended while in use.
Operate the smoker with close supervision.
The 20 lb LP cylinder used with this smoker must
conform to the following requirements.
Diameter- 12” (30.5cm)
Height 18” (45.7cm)
With a maximum capacity of 20 pounds. The gas
cylinder used must include a collar to protect the
cylinder valve. The cylinder supply system
must be arranged for vapor withdrawal.
The instructions stated on gas cylinder tanks have to
be followed when filling or transporting
tanks. Failure to do so could result in problems relating
to overfilling, excessive venting release
of gas and to regulator freezing.
Do not allow dirt or foreign material to get into or onto
tank connection when it is not attached to the fuel
supply system. Place the dust cap on cylinder valve
outlet whenever the cylinder is not in use. Only install
the type of dust cap on the cylinder valve outlet that is
provided with the cylinder valve. Other types of caps or
plugs may result in leakage of propane.
Cylinders must be filled before initial use. All handling,
transport, filling and storage of LP gas cylinders must
be in accordance with NFPA 58 Storage and Handling
of Liquid Petroleum Gases, or CSAB 149.1 Natural Gas
and Propane Installation Code. Cylinders must be
suitably tied down during transport. Do not place any
other items on top of cylinders at any time. Cylinders
are not to be exposed to excessive temperatures or
high heat.
CAUTION: In the connection process, the
hose/regulator side of the connection will
seal on the back check in the valve,
resulting in a slight resistance. The
connection requires about one-half to
three-quarters additional turn to complete
the connection.
Any fuel supply cylinder used must be constructed and
marked in accordance with specifications for propane
cylinders of the U.S. Department of Transportation
(DOT) CFR 49, or CAN/CSA B339. The appliances is to
be used only with the 20 pound, vertical standing vapor
withdrawal type tank.
If there is a question on the identity of your unit and of
the type of fuel to be used, please look on the data
plate. Units are factory equipped for use on only one
type of fuel. These units cannot be, and should not be
used on other type of fuels. Doing so can cause severe
damage to the unit and the installation area and the
added risk of serious injury. Any attempt to operate
these smokers on fuels for which they are not design
certified voids the manufacturer's warranty.
Gas Tank outlet must have Type 1 gas connection
termination in order to mate with gas hose provided
with smoker.
The pressure regulator and hose assembly supplied by
the manufacturer with the appliance must be used.
Replacement pressure regulators and hose assemblies
must be those specified by the appliance manufacturer.
13
CONNECTING THE LP TANK
The regulator/hose assembly should be handled carefully to
prevent contamination by foreign objects and dirt. Clean
and inspect the hose before each use of the appliance. If
there is evidence of abrasion, wear, cuts or leaks, the hose
must be replaced prior to the appliance being put into
operation. In order to insure proper operation, any
replacement of the fuel tank regulator assembly has to be
done with parts authorized by the smoker manufacturer.
This unit is not to be utilized with a non-self-contained LPgas supply system.
Valve/pressure regulators are factory set to the correct
operating pressures. No attempts should be made to adjust
these settings!
CHECKING FOR LEAKS
After all connections are completed, check all connections
and fittings for leaks with a soap solution.
• With all valves closed, apply the leak check solution
(50/50 mix of dishwashing detergent and water) to all gas
carrying connections, fittings and to tank seams.
• Open tank valve.
Presence of bubbles at areas of wet solution indicates a
gas leak. If leaks are detected or you smell or hear gas,
shut off the valve and repair the leak or replace the
defective part. Do not use the smoker until all leaks are
corrected.
When setting up the smoker and tank, it is
recommended to have the tank and smoker on a line
perpendicular to the wind direction.
The gas hose/regulator assembly should be totally
extended to the maximum distance so that the hose is
straight and the tank is as far from the smoker as it can
be.
LP tanks are intended for operation in the upright
position only.
Care should be taken to protect the fuel supply hose
from damage from either foot or vehicle traffic.
If the appliance is not in use, the gas must be turned off
at the supply cylinder and the cylinder should be
disconnected from the appliance.
Storage of the appliance indoors is only permissible if
the cylinder is disconnected and removed from the
appliance.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
PRE-USE PROCEDURES
Before you cook food in your smoker, it is important to
“season” your smoker. Seasoning seals the paint and
interior of your smoker to enhance flavoring, durability, and
overall performance. This is also referred to as the “breakin” process.
If your smoker requires any touch-up paint on the inside of
the cabinet, the only time you should apply paint to the
inside is before the seasoning process. Paint should not be
applied to the interior of your smoker after your smoker
has been used. Paint toxins may contaminate your food.
However, if paint becomes necessary after use, see the
section in this manual concerning After Use Care and
Maintenance.
To season your smoker, simply use it as you normally
would; only do not cook any food. You will need to follow
all of the operating procedures in the next few sections of
this manual.
Using your desired flavoring woods and marinades, burn
your smoker at low temperature (around 125°F [50°C]) for
45-60 minutes. Let the smoker cool, and clean out the used
water and wood.
Once seasoning is complete, your smoker’s interior will
have a durable, seasoned coating.
ADDING WATER
To add water before cooking, simply remove the water bowl
and fill it with water up to 1” (2.5cm) below the rim. Then
replace the bowl to the bottom of the rack.
To add water while the smoker is hot, DO NOT pull the
water bowl out beyond the rack.
Cooking Tips:
Line the water bowl with aluminum foil before each use.
This will make it easy to clean and help your water bowl
last longer.
To make adding water easier and safer, use a clean
watering can with a long spout.
ADDING WOOD / CHARCOAL
To add wood chips before cooking, simply fill the wood chip
box with your choice of flavoring hardwood chips. The
amount and type of wood you use is entirely up to you. One
full box is typically enough for several hours of smoking.
Once the box is filled, place the lid on top of the box and
set the box in the smoker.
To add wood chips while cooking, we recommend using
tongs or long handled pliers to remove the box lid and to
place the pieces into the wood chip box without removing
the box. It is not recommended to remove the wood chip
box while the smoker is in operation.
LIGHTING PROCEDURES
IGNITER LIGHTING SYSTEM:
1. Check all connections for leaks using the “soapy water”
test as explained on page 13.
2. Open the smoker cabinet door.
3. Check for any blockage to the burner. Remove any
foreign objects or matter.
4. Be sure the burner control knob is in the “OFF” position.
5. Open the LP cylinder valve by turning counter-clockwise.
6. To light unit with the igniter, push in and turn the burner
control knob counter-clockwise to the high setting.
7. Immediately rotate the igniter repeatedly to click it
several times (you should see a small spark jumping
from the end of the electrode rod to the side of the
burner). If the burner doesn’t light within 3 to 5 seconds,
turn the burner control knob off and wait five minutes for
gas to clear before repeating the steps again. If burner
still fails to light try match lighting the smoker using the
instructions noted below.
8. Once the burner is lit, then close the door to allow heat
to accumulate.
MATCH LIGHTING:
1. Repeat steps 1 thru 5 of the Igniter Lighting System
above.
CAUTION: The wood chip box and lid get very hot.
Avoid handling them while in use. Always
wear protective oven mitts when handling
hot components.
Cooking Tip – Flavoring wood:
2. Remove the Wood Chip Box and its stand from inside
the smoker. Light a paper match and drop it into the
burn chamber, making sure it falls next to the brass
burner. Quickly turn the control knob to the light
position. If the burner does not light within 4 or 5
seconds, turn the control knob off, wait 5 minutes for
gas to clear, and repeat the process.
• Small wood chips work best inside the wood chip box.
• Use dry hardwoods such as hickory, pecan, apple,
cherry, or mesquite.
• Most fruit or nut tree woods produce excellent smoke
flavoring.
• Do not use resinous woods such as pine or plywood.
These usually produce unpleasant flavoring.
• Let your taste be your guide – experiment with different
types and quantities of wood chunks, chips, or sticks.
You can even mix woods.
• To produce more smoke and to prevent fast burning, presoak the wood chips in a separate bowl of water for at
least 20 minutes, or wrap the chips in perforated
aluminum foil.
• Most smoke flavoring occurs within the first hour of
cooking. Adding wood chips after the first hour is
typically not necessary unless extra smoke flavoring is
desired.
15
SHUTTING THE SMOKER OFF
CAUTION: The smoker can become very hot while in
use. Do not touch any portion of the smoker
except for the door handle and burner
control knob. It may be necessary to use
protective gloves.
• Turn the burner control knob off by pushing in and
rotating clockwise. The burner flame should then
go out.
• Turn off the LP cylinder valve by turning the knob
clockwise until it stops.
• Follow all warnings and safety precautions before
removing meat from smoker or preparing the unit for
storage. Please see page 16 for proper storage
procedures and the important warnings and safeguards
on pages 2 and 4.
COOKING INSTRUCTIONS
IMPORTANT: Before each use, clean and inspect the hose
and the connection to the LP cylinder. If there is evidence of
abrasion, wear, cuts or leaks, the hose must be replaced
before the smoker is used. Refer to the “leak test”
instructions in the LP Tank connection portion of this
manual.
• Fill the wood chip box with flavoring wood chips and
place the box inside the smoker as instructed in the
assembly section of this manual. Refer to the section that
explains flavoring wood for recommended use of
flavoring wood.
• Place the water bowl inside the smoker in the lowest rack
position as explained in the assembly section of this
manual. Carefully fill the water bowl with water or
marinade up to 1 inch below the rim. A full bowl will last
for approximately 2-3 hours. Do not overfill or allow water
to overflow from the water bowl.
• Insert or adjust the cooking grills in to the desired rack
positions. For better access to the food with tongs or
spatulas, make sure the grill wires run front to back as
explained in the assembly section of this manual.
• You are now ready to light the burner. Refer to the Lighting
Procedure on the previous pages of this manual. The heat
from the burner will allow the wood chips to burn, causing
the flavoring smoke to accumulate.
• Place the food on the cooking grills in a single layer with
space between each piece. This will allow smoke and hot
moisture to circulate evenly around all the food pieces.
• Smoking for 2 to 3 hours at the ideal constant cooking
temperature of 225° to 250° F (110° to 120° C) will get the
best results. This temperature is according to the
temperature gauge mounted on the front of the smoker.
For more tender and heavily smoked meat, a lower
temperature may be preferred. If time is critical, a higher
temperature range is recommended.
16
•
Check water level periodically and add water if low. For
best results and to retain heat, avoid opening the door
of the smoker while in use. When the door must be
opened, only open it briefly. The smoker will quickly
resume cooking temperature after the door is closed.
•
Always use a meat probe thermometer to ensure food
is fully cooked before removing it from the smoker.
•
After each use, and after the smoker is cooled,
carefully remove the grease pan from the bottom of the
smoker, empty the grease, and clean the grease pan.

AFTER USE SAFETY AND
MAINTENANCE
WARNING
• Use caution when lifting and moving the smoker to avoid
strains or back injury. Two people are recommended to
lift or move the smoker.
• DO NOT store the smoker near gasoline or other
combustible liquids or where combustible vapors may
be present.
• DO NOT store this smoker in an area accessible to
children or pets. Store the smoker in a dry, protected
location.
• DO NOT allow anyone to conduct activities around the
smoker following use until it has cooled. It is hot during
operation.
• DO NOT leave hot ashes unattended until the smoker
cools completely.
• This smoker becomes extremely hot - allow the smoker
to cool completely before handling. If you must handle
smoker while it is hot, ALWAYS wear protective oven
mitts or heat resistant gloves when handling the smoker
or its components. Allow the smoker to cool before
removing and cleaning the grease pan.
• Dispose of cold ashes by wrapping them in heavy duty
aluminum foil and putting them in a noncombustible
container. Be sure there are no other combustible
materials in or near the container.
• If you must dispose of the ashes in less time than it
takes for them to completely cool, remove the ashes
from the smoker, keeping them in heavy duty foil, and
soak them completely with water before disposing of
them in a noncombustible container.
CAUTION: All care and maintenance procedures are to
be performed only while the smoker is
turned off and cooled.
• Clean the water bowl and cooking grills with hot, soapy
water. Rinse and dry thoroughly. You may prefer to coat
the water bowl and cooking grills lightly with cooking oil
or cooking spray.
• Frequently check and clean the burner for insects and
insect nests.A clogged tube can lead to fire outside the
smoker. Also make sure the smoker does not have any
foreign objects obstructing the flow of combustion and
ventilation air.
Fish
(Cook until opaque and flakes easily)
Note: These temperatures are measured with a meat
probe thermometer. The heat indicator on the
door of the smoker is not an accurate meat
temperature reading.
17
• If your heat indicator seems to be out of calibration:
Remove the heat indicator from the door of the smoker
by loosening and removing the mounting nut from the
inside. There is a second nut mounted on the back of the
heat indicator that can be turned to adjust the heat
indicator needle. Set the needle to the current outdoor
ambient temperature and re-mount the heat indicator to
the door of the smoker.
• To clean the inside and outside of the smoker cabinet,
simply use a damp cloth. Spray-washing with a water
hose is not recommended. All moisture should be wiped
away and not allowed to stand inside or on top of the
smoker. Carefully remove the grease pan, dispose the
grease, and wash thoroughly. Once cleaned, you may
prefer to lightly coat the interior of the smoker cabinet
with cooking oil or cooking spray.
STORAGE
BEFORE STORING YOUR GRILL:
• Clean all surfaces.
• When cool and not in use, store your smoker indoors in
a dry location to protect against rusting.
• If storing the grill outdoors, cover the grill with a grill
cover for protection from the weather.
TROUBLESHOOTING
PROBLEM
• If rust is present on the exterior surface of the smoker,
clean the area with steel wool or emery cloth and use
heavy duty, heat resistant paint.
Burner will
not light
• NEVER apply additional paint to the interior of the
smoker. If rust is present on the interior of the smoker,
clean it thoroughly with steel wool or emery cloth and
lightly coat the area with cooking oil or cooking spray to
help minimize recurring rust.
3. Burner may not be
properly seated.
4. Burner may be

• When an LP tank is not connected, and to help prevent
dirt or other foreign particles from clogging the
hose/regulator, hang the end of the hose/regulator from
the side handle using the supplied S-hook.
• To protect your smoker from weather, always keep your
smoker covered while not in use.
• Inspect the flames at the burner by looking through the
front access hole.A good flame should be blue with a
yellow tip 1” to 2” in length. If flames are excessively
yellow and irregular, oil residue and food deposits may
be collecting on the burner. Try cleaning the burner
surface and the holes to improve the flames. Bad flames
may also be caused by poor gas valve orifice-to-burner
attachment. Always let the smoker cool before cleaning
or checking the assembly.
