according to the instructions outlined in the “Assembly Instruction” section of the Owner’s Guide.
LIQUID PROPANE GAS UNITS ONLY:
Use the regulator that is supplied with your Weber® gas barbecue.
Do not attempt to disconnect the gas regulator or any gas fitting while your barbecue is in operation.
A dented or rusty liquid propane cylinder may be hazardous and should be checked by your liquid
propane supplier. Do 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.
If you see, smell or hear the hiss of escaping gas from the liquid propane cylinder:

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, if you
move.
Liquid Propane (LP) gas supply is easy to use and gives
you more cooking control than charcoal fuel.

General Instructions
Grilling Methods
Cleaning
NOTE: If grill looses heat while cooking refer to the
troubleshooting section of this manual.
WARNING: Do not move the Weber® gas barbecue
when operating or while barbecue is hot.
You can adjust the Left and Right burners in each burner
set as desired. The control settings are High (H), Medium
(M), Low (L), or Off (O).
Note: The temperature inside your cooking box for the
first few uses, while surfaces are still very reflective, may
be hotter than those shown in your cookbook. Cooking
conditions. Such as wind and weather, may require the
adjustment of the burner controls to obtain the correct
cooking temperatures.
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.
For availability of replacement cooking grates and
Flavorizer® bars contact the
Customer Service Representative in your region using
the contact information sheet
provided with your manual.
Outside surfaces - Use a warm soapy water solution to
clean, then rinse with water.
CAUTION: Do not use oven cleaner, abrasive
cleansers (kitchen cleansers) cleaners that contain
citrus products, or abrasive cleaning pads on
barbecue or cart surfaces.
If burners go out during cooking, open lid, turn off all
burners and wait five minutes before relighting.
Preheating - Your Weber® gas barbecue is an energyefficient appliance. It operates at an economical low BTU
rate. To preheat: after lighting, close lid and turn all
burners to high (HH). 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.
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 bottom
tray. Disposable foil drip pans are available that fit the
catch pan.
WARNING: Check the bottom tray for grease buildup before each use. Remove excess grease to
avoid a grease fire in the slide out bottom tray.
Slide out Bottom tray - Remove excess grease, then
wash with warm soapy water, then rinse
Flavorizer® bars and Cooking grates - Clean with a
suitable brass bristle brush. As needed, remove from grill
and wash with warm soapy water, then rinse with 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, then rinse.
Thermometer - Wipe with warm soapy water; clean with
plastic scrub ball. Do not put in dishwasher or submerge
in water.
Inside cooking module - Brush any debris off of burner
tubes. DO NOT ENLARGE BURNER PORTS
(OPENINGS). Wash inside of cooking box 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.
Thermoset surfaces - Wash with a soft cloth and a soap
and water solution.
Do not use cleaners that contain acid, mineral spirits
or xylene. Rinse well after cleaning.
Thermoset work surfaces are not to be used as
cutting boards.

Gas Instructions
■ Be sure the regulator is mounted with the small vent
hole pointed downward so that it will not collect water.
This vent should be free of dirt, grease, bugs etc.
■ The LP cylinder and connections supplied with your
Weber® gas barbecue have been designed and tested
to meet government, American Gas Association, and
Underwriters Laboratories requirements.
Safe handling tips for Liquid Propane
Gas Cylinders
■ Liquid Propane (LP) gas is a petroleum product as are
gasoline and natural gas. LP gas is a gas at regular
temperatures and pressures. Under moderate pressure,
inside a cylinder, LP gas is a liquid. As the pressure is
released, the liquid readily vaporizes and becomes gas.
■ LP gas has an odor similar to natural gas. You should
be aware of this odor.
■ LP gas is heavier than air. Leaking LP gas may collect
in low areas and prevent dispersion.
■ To fill, take the LP cylinder to an RV center, or look up
“gas-propane” in the phone book for other sources of
LP gas.
WARNING: We recommend that your LP cylinder be
filled at an authorized LP gas dealer, by a qualified
attendant, who fills the tank by weight. IMPROPER
FILLING IS DANGEROUS.
WARNING: If you exchange your LP cylinder, make
sure you get a similar tank in return. Your LP
cylinder is equipped with a quick closing coupling
or type 1 valve and an OPD (Overfilling Prevention
Device). Other LP cylinders may not be compatible
with your barbecue connection.
■ Air must be removed from a new LP cylinder before the
initial filling. Your LP dealer is equipped to do this.
■ The LP cylinder must be installed, transported and
stored in an upright position. LP cylinders should not be
dropped or handled roughly.
■ Never store or transport the LP cylinder where
temperatures can reach 125° F (too hot to hold by hand
- for example: do not leave the LP cylinder in a car on a
hot day).
Note - A refill will last about 20 hours of cooking time at
normal use. The fuel scale will indicate the propane supply
so you can refill before running out. You do not have to run
out before you refill.
■ Treat “empty” LP cylinders with the same care as when
full. Even when the LP tank is empty of liquid there still
may be gas pressure in the cylinder. Always close the
cylinder valve before disconnecting.
CAUTION: When transporting the LP cylinder make
sure the plastic dust cover is in place over the
valve. This will keep dust and dirt from the threaded
portion of the valve.
■ Do not use a damaged LP cylinder. Dented or rusty LP
cylinders or LP cylinders with a damaged valve may be
hazardous and should be replaced with a new one
immediately.
Liquid Propane (LP) Cylinder(s)
■ The joint where the hose connects to the LP cylinder
must be leak tested each time the LP cylinder is
reconnected. For example, test each time the LP
cylinder is refilled.
Liquid Propane Cylinder requirements
■ Replacement LP cylinders supplied by Weber satisfy
the above requirements. Check to be sure other
cylinders have a D.O.T. certification(1), and date
tested(2) is within five years. Your LP gas supplier can
do this for you.
If you have questions about spare LP cylinders
contact the Customer Service Representative in your
region using the contact information sheet provided
with your manual.
■ All LP tank supply systems must include a collar to
protect the cylinder valve.

Operating Instructions
Grilling Methods
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 hits 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 2 to 5
minutes per side. Smaller pieces require less searing time.
Usually after searing you finish cooking the food 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 High. 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.
NOTE: If grill looses heat while cooking refer to the
troubleshooting section of this manual.
You can adjust the Left and Right burners in each burner
set as desired. The control settings are High (H), Medium
(M), Low (L), or Off (O).
If burners go out during cooking, turn off all burners
and wait 5 minutes before relighting.
WARNING: Check the bottom tray and catch pan for
grease build-up before each use. Remove excess
grease to avoid a grease fire in the bottom tray.
Preheating the grill before grilling is important. Light your
Summit® gas grill according to the instructions in this
Owner’s Manual. Turn both burners in each burner set
to High (HH), close the lid, and preheat grill with the lid
down until grill thermometer reaches 550ºF. This is the
recommended broiling temperature.
Preheating
Preheating the grill before grilling is very important. Light
your Summit® gas grill according to the instructions in your
Owner’s Manual. Close the lid and wait until the
thermometer in your lid reaches 500˚-550˚F (260˚-288˚C).
This will take approximately 10 to 15 minutes, depending
on outside temperatures.
Covered cooking
All grilling is done with the lid down to provide uniform,
evenly circulated heat. With the lid closed, the Summit®
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.
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 funnel-shaped bottom
tray into the grease catch pan.
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.

Operating Instructions
Grilling Tips & Helpful Hints
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 an oven. To set up for
Indirect cooking, gas burners are lit 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 High. 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 heavygauge 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.
• Always preheat the grill before cooking. Set all burners
on HIGH heat and close lid; heat for 10 minutes, or until
thermometer registers 500˚-550˚F (260˚-288˚C).
• Sear meats and cook with the lid down for perfectly
grilled food every time.
• Grilling times in recipes are based on 70˚F (20˚C)
weather and little or no wind. Allow more cooking time
on cold or windy days, or at higher altitudes. Allow less
cooking time in extremely hot weather.
• Grilling times in charts and recipes are approximate.
Times can vary because of the weather, or the amount,
size and shape of the food being grilled.
• The temperature of your Summit® gas grill may run
hotter than normal for the first few uses.
• Grilling conditions may require the adjustment of the
burner controls to attain the correct cooking
temperatures.
• In general, large pieces of meat will require more
cooking time per pound than small pieces of meat.
Foods on a crowded cooking grate will require more
cooking time than just a few foods. Foods grilled in
containers, such as baked beans, will require more time
if grilled in a deep casserole rather than a shallow
baking pan.
• Trim excess fat from steaks, chops and roasts, leaving
no more than a scant 1⁄4 inch of fat. Less fat makes
cleanup easier, and is a virtual guarantee against
unwanted flare-ups.
• Foods placed on the cooking grate directly above
burners may require turning or moving to a less hot
area.
• Use tongs rather than a fork for turning and handling
meats to avoid losing natural juices. Use two spatulas for
handling large whole fish.
• If an unwanted flare-up should occur, turn all burners to
OFF and move food to another area of the cooking
grate. Any flames will quickly subside. After flames
subside, relight the grill. NEVER USE WATER TO
EXTINGUISH FLAMES ON A GAS GRILL.
• Some foods, such as a casserole or thin fish fillets, will
require a container for grilling. Disposable foil pans are
very convenient, but any metal pan with ovenproof
handles can also be used.
• Always be sure the bottom tray and grease catch pan
are clean and free from debris.
• Do not line the funnel-shaped bottom tray with foil. This
could prevent the grease from flowing into the grease
catch pan.
• Using a timer will help to alert you when “well-done” is
about to become “over-done.”

Weber® Spider /Insect screens
®
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 air shutter. This could result in a fire in and
around the air shutters, under the control panel, causing
serious damage to your barbecue.
(1)
Lightly tap the burner to get debris and dirt out of the
burner tube. Once the spider/insect screens and burners
are clean replace the burners.
If the spider/insect screen becomes damaged or cannot be
cleaned, call Weber-Stephen Products Customer Service
for replacement parts.
Main Burner Flame Pattern
The Weber® gas barbecue burners have been factory set
for the correct air and gas mixture. The correct flame
pattern is shown.
1) Burner tube
2) Tips occasionally flicker yellow
3) Light blue
4) Dark blue
The burner tube air shutter is fitted with a stainless steel
screen(1) to prevent spiders and other insects access to
the burner tubes through the air shutter openings.

Annual Maintenance
Inspection and cleaning of the Spider/Insect screens
To inspect the spider/insect screens, remove the control
panel. If there is dust or dirt on the screens, remove the
burners for cleaning the screens.
Turn off the gas supply. Remove the manifold.
Look inside each burner with a flashlight.
Clean the inside of the burners with a wire (a straightenedout coat hanger will work). Check and clean the air shutter
opening at the ends of the burners. Check and clean the
valve orifices at the base of the valves. Use a Steel bristle
brush to clean outside of burners. This is to make sure all
the burner ports are fully open.
CAUTION: Do not enlarge the burner ports when
cleaning.
Brush the spider/inspect screens, lightly, with a soft bristle
brush (i.e. an old toothbrush).
 CAUTION: Do not clean the spider/insect screens
with hard or sharp tools. Do not dislodge the spider/
insect screens or enlarge the screen openings.
