WARNING
COOKING WITH OIL OR GREASE
• This fryer does not have automatic thermostat controls so must be attended and monitored at
all times during oil heat up and frying.
• Lid must be open during oil heat up and frying. Closing the lid when frying greatly increases the
potential of over-heating the oil to ignition and fire.
• When cooking with oil/grease, a thermometer must be used. Follow instructions in this manual
for proper installation and use of the provided frying thermometer.
• Follow instructions contained in this manual for proper assembly and positioning of the fryer,
gas leak and thermometer test, heat-up and frying operation, cleanup and storage.
• Cooking oil pre-heat up to over-heat times can vary significantly with relatively small adjustments
to regulator; variable wind, ambient temperature, altitude, starting oil temperature, and type of
cooking oil used. When using 4 1/2 gallons of oil in this fryer, oil preheat time to 350˚F can range
from 10 to 15 minutes.
• Do not allow cooking oil/grease to exceed 400˚F (200˚C) which is the FIRE HAZARD zone on the
thermometer. Cooking oil/grease will ignite and catch fire at 550˚F to 700˚F (287˚C to 371˚C).
• Due to varying heating and cooking times, check thermometer every 3 minutes to ensure cooking
oil does not exceed 400˚F (200˚C). This is an ATTENDED appliance. DO NOT leave appliance
unattended while heating oil/grease, cooking food or cool down period after use.
• Smoking oil is an indication that the oil is too hot and may ignite. Regardless of thermometer
reading, if the oil/grease starts to smoke, turn OFF fuel supply to the burner and
STOP COOKING IMMEDIATELY. This indicates the thermometer is not working properly.
Discard the thermometer and call 1-800-864-6194 M-F 8am - 5pm CST for assistance.

THERMOMETER TEST INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING
Always use a thermometer when frying any food products. A thermometer is a sensitive measuring
device which may not work properly if dropped, bent, or twisted. Always check to be sure thermometer
is working properly before frying.
There is a simple way to test a thermometer.
1. Insert thermometer stem into boiling water.
2. While wearing protective gloves, hold your thermometer by the dial and insert stem into boiling water.
The needle should quickly move around the dial and register approximately 212˚F (100˚C).
This indicates your thermometer is working. NOTE: Due to water evaporation, the maximum reading
on a thermometer in hot water test is 212˚F (100˚C). Hot cooking oil will send the temperature reading
above 212˚F (100˚C).
3. If the needle stops at a low temperature i.e. 180˚F; this indicates your thermometer is not working
properly. If so, discard the thermometer and call 1-800-864-6194 M-F 8am - 5pm CST for assistance.

HOW TO DETERMINE PROPER AMOUNT OF OIL
WARNING
Immersing food into hot cooking oil/grease causes a furious boil while displacing oil upwards.
Overfilling the fryer vessel with oil/grease can cause a spillover. To reduce the risk of spillover, these
steps MUST be followed.
This fryer is designed to hold 4 - 4 1/2 gallons of oil/grease depending on what you are cooking.
Never us more than 4 1/2 gallons of oil in this fryer.
1. Make certain that bottom drain valve is closed and burner turned off.

FRYING INSTRUCTIONS
(Read pages 21 - 22 about Cooking Oil)
WARNING
This appliance does not have automatic thermostat controls so must be attended and monitored at all
times during use. When cooking with oil/grease, the thermometer provided must be used to monitor
temperature. Oil/grease heated above 400˚F (200˚C) will ignite and catch fire causing property
damage, personal injury or death.
NOTE: Optimum frying temperature range is 325˚F to 350˚F (163˚C to 177˚C).
1. Follow instructions to properly assemble and position the fryer. Perform gas leak and thermometer
test, and oil level determination.
2. Add the determined amount of oil/grease into the frying chamber.
Remember: - The maximum amount of oil/grease to be used with this fryer is 4 1/2 gallons.
- Leave baskets inside frying chamber while pouring in the oil. The maximum
level of "cool" oil/grease inside the baskets is 2-inches.
- Oil/grease expands when heated and raises its level inside the frying chamber.
3. Light the burner on the fryer as described.
NOTE: Spend a few moments to adjust the flame up and down to become familiar with flame
adjustment process.
CAUTION
Before lighting cooker, always have all food product prepared and ready for frying. This will reduce
future distractions and better enable proper monitoring of thermometer and heating oil.
4. Increase flame to desired level and monitor the thermometer. The heat-up time to reach 350˚F will
take from 10 to 15 minutes. Actual heat-up time will vary depending on type and amount of oil used,
regulator setting, ambient temperature, wind, and altitude.
WARNING
DO NOT close lid during oil heat-up or frying. This can cause oil to heat faster, overheat, ignite and
cause a fire. Lid must remain open at all times during use.
HINT: Very often the first batch results in some food particles sticking to the basket. To reduce this from
occuring, leave the baskets submerged in the oil during the heat up period. Once oil temperature
reaches 300˚F, remove the baskets from the oil and set them on the drain bar.
5. After making certain food product is thawed and towel dried, add food product into the empty baskets.
6. When thermometer reaches 325˚F - 350˚F, reduce burner flame to a low level.
7. Leaving burner flame at a low setting, and wearing a protective glove, carefully and S-L-O-W-L-Y
lower the basket, and food product into the cooking oil. Inserting the food product into hot oil will
cause a brief and furious spatter, and will quickly reduce oil temperature. Frying time will be fast
so NEVER LEAVE COOKING UNATTENDED and constantly monitor the thermometer.
8. Once the furious boil has subsided, increase gas flow to the burner so that temperature can return
to the optimum range of 325˚F to 350˚F. You must constantly monitor the thermometer and make
minor adjustments to the regulator valve until a steady frying temperature is achieved. That is usually
attained during the second batch.
HINT: 4 to 4 1/2 gallons is a very large volume of cooking oil that holds the heat and maintains a steady
temperature during the frying process. As cooking process continues, a steady frying temperature
can be maintained with burner flame reduced to a lower setting.
20
WARNING
Regardless of thermometer reading, if the oil/grease starts to smoke, turn OFF fuel supply to the
burner and STOP COOKING IMMEDIATELY. This indicates the thermometer is not working properly.
Discard the thermometer and call 1-800-864-6194 M-F 8am - 5pm CST for assistance.
Replacement thermometer Model #5070.
9. When frying is complete, first turn off gas supply at the cylinder valve, then close regulator valve.
10. Wearing protective gloves, carefully remove baskets from oil. Set baskets on drain bar.
11. After hot oil has sufficiently drained, carefully remove food from basket.
COOKING NOTE:
When frying the very first basket of food product, the food may reach proper doneness before the cooking
oil returns to the optimum frying range between 325˚F to 350˚F. This is normal.
For subsequent basket loads of food, the oil should return to the 325˚F to 350˚F cooking range while
the food product fries to proper doneness.
As cooking process continues, a steady frying temperature can be maintained with burner flame reduced
to a low setting.
COOKING OIL: Important Facts to Know
Since early times when human civilization first developed pots and pans, people have used various forms of cooking oil for frying.
Originally animal fat (grease/lard) was used for frying which now is mostly replaced by olive, vegetable and peanut oil.
It is almost universal knowledge that over-heated cooking oil will catch fire and burn. Cooking oil has a flashpoint temperature
ranging from 550˚F to 700˚F, depending on type of oil used, altitude and ambient temperature. However, most people do
not realize that cooking oil typically does not burn when below its flashpoint temperature.
Cooking oil contained inside the confines of a stockpot, skillet or pan (vessel) is quite stable when below its flashpoint temperature.
For example, heated cooking oil at optimum frying range of 325˚F to 350˚F does not catch fire even if a flame is accidentally
placed in contact with the oil. This stable characteristic enables cooking oil to be used on kitchen stoves inside hundreds of
millions of homes worldwide. Imagine someone smoking while frying at 350˚F and the cigarette falls into the hot oil.
The fire inside the cigarette will be extinguished by hot 350˚F cooking oil very similar had it fallen into water.
On the other side, cooking oil must be respected and used responsibly. As cooking oil is heated up approaching flashpoint
temperature, it becomes unstable and begins to breakdown. As cooking oil breaks down, vapors are created that when mixed
with oxygen, will burn. When heated to very high temperatures, cooking oil vapors will self-ignite.
The following is a typical scenario of what happens as vegetable oil, contained in a cooking vessel, reaches its flashpoint
temperature and self ignites:
• The oil first becomes darker and emits an unpleasant odor.
• At about 440˚F, the oil begins emitting a pale vapor smoke.
• At about 500˚F, the smoke turns black.
• Soon a heavy, thick black smoke belches out.
• At about 600˚F, a small flame flickers out from the oil. At this point the cooking oil has reached its point of self-ignition.
• If the heat source below the vessel remains engaged, the flame will quickly grow.
• All the while cooking oil burns, thick black smoke continues to belch forth.
Another point many people do not know is that over-heated cooking oil that catches fire can make a huge flame.
For example, a small 12" skillet with only 1/2" deep of cooking oil can create a flame 7- ft to 9- ft high! A large cooking
vessel containing up to 3 gallons of cooking oil can create a flame up to 15- ft high!
On average, every year in the U.S. there are 80,000 kitchen/house fires caused by burning cooking oil that are responded
to by a Fire Department. Imagine a 3- ft high kitchen stove supporting a cooking vessel emitting a 7- ft flame… that is a
dangerous house fire!
The vast majority of these kitchen fires are the result of leaving cooking oil unattended. Simply answering the door bell, phone
or tending to a crying child are sufficient distractions that allow a 12" skillet with 1/2" cooking oil to over-heat and catch fire.
21
Eventually, burning cooking oil will self extinguish. Actual burn out time does vary but on average:
•
•
A 12" skillet with 1/2" deep cooking oil will self extinguish in about 5 - 7 minutes after first flame emits.
A cooking vessel with 3- gallons of cooking oil will self extinguish in about 20 - 25 minutes after first flame emits.
Either way a very large flame is raging long enough to spread fire to any combustible structure that it touches.
Another well known point is that cooking oil can be re-used. Most cooking oil brands recommend using oil 4 - 5 times if it is
strained, and can be stored in a cool dark place from 9 - 12 months.
During the storage period bacteria will form on poultry, fish or animal fats remaining in the oil. This bacteria is quickly killed
when the oil is re-heated. Prior to using again, it is recommended that you smell the cooking oil. If it smells unpleasant or
rancid, discard properly and use new cooking oil.
However, most people are unaware that used cooking oil has a reduced Smoke Point and Flash Point temperature due to partial
breakdown of the oil. (Partial break-down is caused by previous use and bacteria) Although safe for normal use, this is just
another reason to never, ever leave cooking oil unattended during heat up and cooking.
Cooking Oil facts to Remember:
• 100% Peanut Oil is considered a very stable cooking oil having a higher Smoke and Flash Point temperature than other
vegetable oils.
• Some cooking oil is sold as a "blend" of vegetable and peanut oil.
• Re-used Vegetable and Peanut Oil both have reduced Smoke and Flash Point temperatures.
• As a result, Flash Point temperature of cooking oil ranges from 550˚F to 700˚F.
Remember; Think Safety and use Common Sense when frying with cooking oil/grease.
CLEANING AND STORAGE MAINTENANCE
CAUTION
• Wait for oil to cool to or below 115˚F (45˚C) before draining into a plastic container.
Hot oil can melt the plastic and cause personal injury.
• The weight of 4 to 4 1/2 gallons of oil creates downward pressure so S-L-O-W-L-Y open
drain valve to prevent spillage.
DRAINING THE OIL
1. This fryer comes equipped with a drain hose that attaches to the drain valve. You may use, or not
use the drain hose, that is up to you.
2. Batter from frying settles down into the V-Bottom at the drain valve. It is recommended that you first
use a bucket to catch the loose batter as it drains.
3. Once oil begins to flow clear, you may begin draining back into the orginal containers.
HINT: Cooking oil may be used several times before needing to be replaced. The unique design of this
appliance allows the food batter to fall to the bottom below the heat source where it will not scorch.
The oil on the bottom of the appliance is cooler than the oil at the top. For this reason, the oil stays
cleaner longer. You should strain oil back into its container.
CLEANING THE FRYER
Considersing the nature of the cooking task, clean-up is relatively simple. You need a garden hose, bucket,
dishwashing liquid and a sponge.
NOTE: You may first want to move the empty fryer to a clean-up area.
1. Position the bucket under the open drain valve and using a garden hose, rinse out the V-Bottom section
into the bucket.
2. Close the drain valve and add water into the fryer vessel up to the internal heat tubes. Add a dab
of dishwashing liquid and clean the interior with the sponge.
3. Drain the soapy water and rinse clean with garden hose.
4. Using a vegetable oil cooking spray, coat the interior to prevent rust.
22
STORAGE OF FRYER
1. Store fryer in a dry place. Do not store outside exposed to weather. Storage of a gas appliance indoors
is permissible only if the cylinder is disconnected. If storing fryer indoors, detach and leave LP cylinder
outdoors. LP cylinders must be stored outdoors out of the reach of children and must NOT be stored
in a building, garage or any other enclosed area.
2.
For long term storage, cover the burner in-take and exhaust vent with a plastic bag to prevent wasps,
spiders and dirt dobbers from building nests inside the heat tubes.
3. The heat tube can be cleaned by disconnecting both exhaust vent and burner in-take and using a
garden hose, spraying water through the system.
4.
Inspect entire appliance including regulator hose assembly before each use. Replace any damaged
or worn parts. Use only parts specified by Barbour International, Inc.
WARNING
A clogged heat tube can result in flames exiting the exhaust or a back-flash at the burner intake.
Inspect heat tube prior to each use.
TROUBLE SHOOTING TIPS
Problems with lighting the fryer:
1. LP Hose Regulator assemblies and propane tanks are equipped with a safety device to reduce 90% of
gas flow should the hose be cut or severed. Sometimes this safety device may be activated when lighting
the fryer. To prevent this, ALWAYS make sure the regulator valve is in the closed position (see illustration
below) before opening the valve on the LP Cylinder. Then SLOWLY open regulator valve to light.
Prior to lighting, turn regulator valve to CLOSED position.
