feet of the Smoker. LP gas cylinders must be stored outdoors, out of reach of children.
DO NOT store LP gas cylinders in a building, garage, or any other enclosed area. DO
NOT store LP gas cylinders inside or on top of the smoker. Improper storage of LP gas
cylinders could lead to explosion, fire, and/or personal injury.
7. DO NOT use the Smoker near or under flammable or combustible materials
such as decks, porches, or carpets. A minimum clearance range of 36 inches is
recommended. DO NOT operate the Smoker under overhead constructions. Operate
the Smoker only on a stable, level, non-flammable surface such as asphalt, concrete or
solid ground.
22. While the Smoker is not in use, the gas must be turned off at the supply cylinder.
8. DO NOT use the Smoker near gasoline or other combustible liquids or where
combustible vapors may be present.
23. LP gasses are heavier than air, tend to pool and collect in low-lying areas, are
easily ignited and are highly flammable! Proper care and caution should be employed
when dealing with any such fuels. The Smoker should be shut off and all supply valves
(on-piping or on fuel cylinders) should be closed in the event that the odor of unburned
gas is detected. DO NOT attempt to use the unit until any gas leaks are fixed and/or
the source of the unburned gas odor is accounted for.

Smoker.
!
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 Racks with hot, soapy water. Rinse and dry thoroughly. You may prefer to coat the Water
Bowl and Cooking Racks lightly with cooking oil or cooking spray.
.
Frequently check and clean the Venturi and Burner for insects and insect nests. A clogged tube can lead to fire outside the smoker.
.
Check to be sure the Heat Indicator remains accurate. Simply loosen and remove 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. Once cleaned, you
may prefer to lightly coat the interior of the Smoker Cabinet with cooking oil or cooking spray.
.
If rust is present on the exterior surface of the Smoker, clean the area with steel wool or emery cloth and lightly coat the area with
cooking oil or cooking spray to help minimize recurring rust.
.
When an LP tank is not connected, and to help prevent dirt or other foreign particles from clogging the HVR, hang the end of the
HVR hose from the side Handle using the supplied S-Hook, as reviewed in ASSEMBLY STEP 12.
.
Inspect the flames at the Burner by looking through the front access hole. A good flame should be blue with a yellow tip up to 1”
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 HVR-to-Venturi attachment.
Always let the Smoker cool before cleaning or checking the assembly.
.
To protect your Smoker from weather, always keep your Smoker covered while not in use.
24. DO NOT use the Smoker if the burner fails to light or fails to remain lit. Under such
conditions, gas should be shut off and fuel cylinders should be disconnected.
25. Use under high wind conditions that result in poor burner operation such as
blowing out and flaring should be avoided. If repositioning the unit does not improve
operation under such wind conditions, the unit should be shut off until conditions are
more favorable for proper usage.
11. NEVER use gasoline or other highly volatile fluids as a starter. They can Explode.
26. All installations are to conform to local codes. In the absence of local codes,
installation should conform to the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54.
12. The Water Bowl and Wood Chip Box should not be moved while the Smoker is
operating, or until the Smoker has cooled sufficiently. These contain hot ashes and
liquids that may cause serious injury! If you must move these components, ALWAYS
wear protective oven mitts or heat resistant gloves.
27. The Smoker should be installed with
the hose regulator assembly extended at
full length of hose directly (30”) away from
the burner. When so configured, placement
results in maximum tank to Smoker
distance. When the Smoker is operated,
the hose/regulator and gas tank should be
on a line perpendicular to wind direction.
Placing tank closer than 30” to the Smoker
can overheat the tank and cause release of
propane through relief openings and can
result in tank fire or explosion.
13. Dispose of cold ashes by wrapping them in heavy duty aluminum foil and putting
them in a non-combustible container. Be sure there are no other combustible materials
in or near the container. If you must dispose of the ashes before they have completely
cooled, remove the ashes from the Smoker, keeping them in a heavy duty foil, and soak
them completely with water before disposing of them in a non-combustible container.
14. Use caution when opening the Door of the Smoker while in operation. Keep
hands, face, and body safe from hot steam or flare-ups. Protect your nose and mouth
from smoke inhalation.

3. Insert or adjust the Cooking Racks into the desired rack positions. For better access to the food with tongs or spatulas, make sure
the Racks run from front to back as explained in the “ASSEMBLY STEP 8” section of this manual.
4. You are now ready to light the Burner. Refer to “LIGHTING PROCEDURES” In this manual. The heat from the Burner will allow the
wood chips to burn, causing the flavoring smoke to accumulate. Adjust the Dampers to control the heat.
3 BOLTS
6. Smoking for 2 to 3 hours at the ideal constant cooking temperature of 225°F to 250°F will get the best results. This temperature is
according to the Heat Indicator 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.
7. Check water level periodically and add water if low. Never allow the water to completely evaporate. Check the water level at least
every 2 hours or as necessary. 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.

.
.
For better performance, rotate the Smoker to where the front or back of the Cabinet is facing the wind. This allows the adjustment
of the Dampers to be more effective and accurate.
.
CAUTION: Keep the Dampers open a minimum of 10% at all times.
The Dampers should NEVER be fully closed.
Opening a side Damper allows more oxygen to be consumed by the fire, fueling the flames and causing an increase in temperature.
Opening the top Damper helps to exhaust both the heat and smoke.
The key to effective smoking is to watch your Heat Indicator on the Door and adjust the Dampers accordingly.
Temperature maintenance is best controlled by different Damper adjustment configurations.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
ASSEMBLY STEP 3
CONTROL PANEL / HVR SYSTEM / IGNITOR INSTALLATION
SEASONING YOUR SMOKER
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 “break -in” Process.
.
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 175°F) for 45-60 Minutes. Let the
Smoker cool, and clean out the used water and wood.
.
Once the seasoning is complete, your Smoker’s interior will have a durable, seasoned coating.

ADDING WATER TO YOUR SMOKER
.
.
To add water BEFORE cooking, simply remove the Water Bowl and fill it with water up to 1” below the rim. Then replace the Water
Bowl to the bottom of the Rack.
.
To make adding water easier and safer, use a clean watering can or jug with a long spout.
.
Line the Water Bowl with aluminum foil before each use. This will make it easier to clean and extend the life of the Water Bowl.
To add water WHILE the Smoker is hot, DO NOT pull the Water Bowl out beyond the Rack! The water and the Water Bowl will be
extremely HOT!

ADDING WOOD/CHARCOAL TO YOUR SMOKER
.
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 Wood Chip Box
is filled, place the Wood Chip Box Lid on top of the Wood Chip Box and set the Wood Chip Box in the Smoker.
.
To add wood chips WHILE cooking, we recommend using tongs or long handled pliers to remove the Wood Chip Box Lid and to
place the pieces into the Wood Chip Box without removing it. IT IS NOT RECOMMENDED to remove the Wood Chip Box while
the Smoker is in operation.
CAUTION: The Wood Chip Box and the Wood Chip Box Lid get very HOT! Avoid handling them while in use. ALWAYS wear
protective oven mitts when handling hot components!

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.
FRONT
To produce more smoke and to prevent fast burning, pre-soak 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.

SET-UP TIPS
FIGURE 10
Tighten the zip tie so that there is no slack remaining. DO NOT over-tighten the
Zip Tie to help prevent the hose from coming into contact with the hot Burner Chamber. OVER-TIGHTENING may restrict gas flow and could damage the gas line.
3. Inspect the installation underneath the Smoker to ensure that the Hose is not rubbing any portion of the Burner Chamber.
4. Carefully turn the Smoker upright onto its Legs.
ASSEMBLY STEP 5
DAMPER PLATE INSTALLATION
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 Smoker indoors is only permissible if the cylinder is disconnected and removed from the Smoker.

5. Hand tighten the coupling nut clockwise until it comes to a full stop. Firmly tighten by hand
only. DO NOT use tools.
CAUTION: In the gas connection process, when threading the HVP Hose to the LP tank valve
some resistance will be encountered. This is normal when seating the valve. Seating the valve
requires about one-half to three-quarters additional turns 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 appliance is to be used only with the 20 pound, vertical
standing vapor withdrawal type tank.
(A) Do not store tanks under or near the Smoker.
(B) Never fill tanks more than 80% full.
If instruction A and B 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.
.
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. Use the
protective cap provided.
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 CAN/CGA B149.2 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.

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.
The regulator/hose assembly should be handled carefully to prevent contamination by foreign objects and dirt. The assembly should be
inspected before use and any dirt or contamination should be wiped off. 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.
