Operating Instructions
DANGER
The heat and moisture retention property of ceramic grills creates a "pressure cooker" effect resulting in a
superior cooking performance. It can also result in a possible "flashback" of fire and steam toward the handle
as the lid is opened. Such a flashback can singe hair on your forearm, especially when cooking over 300˚F.
Flashbacks can be reduced or prevented by following the simple 2-STEP LID OPENING INSTRUCTION:
1) Slowly open the lid a few inches. Pause for a moment to release internal pressure...
2) Then open lid completely.
NOTE: Flashbacks are greater during the time when both top and bottom vents are closed. During
that time the fire is starved for oxygen and is being extinguished. As the lid is
opened, oxygenated air rushes in and is ignited by the hot coals.
By just barely opening the lid, the sudden rush of fresh air will burn inside the grill and
not around the handle.
Remember, opening the lid is a 2-STEP process.
NOTE: Check Felt Liner on Base & Lid. Grill must maintain a tight seal for proper cooking.
Felt Liner will occasionally need to be replaced. A roll of Replacement Felt is included.
CHARCOAL TIPS
1) Natural Lump Charcoal is recommended because it has that great smoky flavor and can be reused.
Lump Charcoal burns hotter than briquettes while producing less ash, thus reduced obstruction at bottom
air intake vent.
2) For general cooking, fill the Fire Bowl with charcoal up to the bottom of the Insulation Ring. If you want
to cook at a slow and lower temperature, refer to Air Vent Adjustments on Back Page.
3) The temperature is regulated by the air flow through the grill, therefore adjust both top and bottom vents
to reach the desired temperature. It may require some time to properly learn the vent settings.
Refer to Air Vent Adjustments on Back Page.
4) With lump charcoal, you can start cooking as soon as it starts to burn. You do not have to wait for lump
charcoal to turn completely white as with briquettes.
5) Close both top and bottom vents completely when cooking is finished. The fire will quickly extinguish and
any remaining charcoal can be reused.
LIGHTING
1) DO NOT USE LIGHTER FLUIDS! Use of lighter fluids can leave a chemical odor on the ceramic inserts.
2) Use only Natural Lump Charcoal found at most grocery stores.
3) You can use an electric starter, paraffin stick or a Charcoal Chimney.
4) Be certain that both top and bottom air vents are open when lighting.
CLEANING OUT THE ASHES ( Clean only when grill and ash are cool, before lighting )
1) Use a grill brush to stir the remaining coals so that all ashes fall to the bottom of the grill.
2) After most ashes are at the bottom of the grill, open the bottom air vent completely.
3) Place a pan or aluminum foil under the bottom air vent to catch the ashes.
4) Rake ashes out of the bottom air vent into a pan or aluminum foil.
5) Do Not remove Fire Bowl or Insulation Ring to clean ashes. Simply slide open air vent and rake out ash.
Open and rake out ash.

INDIRECT GRILLING - SMOKING - SLOW COOKING
Indirect grilling requires the use of a grill as an outdoor oven. This method enables cooking larger
(pork shoulder, whole chickens) or tougher cuts of meat (brisket and ribs) that would burn if grilled direct.
For best results, slow cook at a moderate temperature ranging from 275˚ to 350˚F.
The pan of water diffuses heat from the coals while heated water vapor keeps food moist and tender.
You may need to add water before the cooking process is complete. At 250˚F, one batch of charcoal should
last all day.
INDIRECT GRILLING SET-UP:
1) After desired cooking temperature is achieved, place reversible grate "upside-down" on Insulation Ring.
2) Having a small amount of water, place water pan on reversible grate. Then, add more water to the pan
until 3/4 full.
3) Position flat grate on top of reversible grate. Place meat on the grate, close the lid and set vents.
4) Monitor the thermometer and adjust the vents periodically to maintain a constant temperature.
There is no need to frequently
open the lid to check the cooking.

GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT CERAMIC GRILLS
1) The Cypress grill is formed by firing a special blend of various clays and matter which stabilizes the ceramic.
It is a heat holding ceramic that resists rapid contraction and expansion. This stabilizing characteristic
prevents the ceramic from cracking should a cold rain occur while grilling. You can cook year round.
2) The exterior glaze may have small pin holes and imperfections. Near the metal bands may be found some
surfaces not completely covered by color and glaze. This is all normal and adds to the distinct character
making each grill unique. Over time, it is possible for the surface glaze to develop a "crackling" pattern.
This too is normal and adds to the grills character while having no effect on cooking performance.
3) Over time you may notice a crack in one or both ceramic inserts. This does not harm the function of the
grill so continue cooking as normal. Actually, a cracked insert is considered "normal" as it is the buffer
protecting the grill body from extreme heat. Do Not remove Fire Bowl or Insulation Ring.
4) Temperature Control: The insulating property found in ceramic provides superior grilling performance
because it retains both heat and moisture. By adjusting both top and bottom vents you can achieve a
desired cooking temperature. Temperature will continue to increase even after all vents are closed.
Therefore, it will require some practice to know when and how much to close vents as the desired temperature
approaches. Once temperature control is mastered, you can smoke, barbeque, grill or bake at precisely
the proper temperature. There is no need to repeatedly open the lid to monitor cooking.
5) Moisture Retention: Thick ceramic used on the Cypress Grill retains moisture and heat better than all other
conventional grills. As a result, foods are cooked evenly and completely while retaining natural juices and
flavors, with minimal shrinkage.
The heat and moisture retention property of ceramic grills makes them prone for growth of mold in certain
environments and between long intervals of use. Mold inside the grill can be removed simply by lighting
the grill and bake for half an hour at 450˚F. After the grill cools, remove excess residue with a wire brush.
