Cooking With Optional The BeefEater
Roasting Hood
Indirect Cooking Method
Indirect cooking is where the heat circulates around
the food, cooking by convection. This is similar to a
conventional oven and is recommended for rotisserie
cooking, roasts, poultry, casseroles vegetables and whole
fish. The indirect method of cooking can also be used to
cook such items as thick cuts of meat and fish steaks that
have been quickly seared on the grill by the direct method
(to seal in the natural juices) then completed by the indirect
method. The key to success in indirect barbecue cooking
is to cook slowly. Note: Opening the Hood: The more the
roasting hood is opened to attend to cooking food the more
heat will be lost, lengthening the cooking time.
Lighting
Important Note: Always open the roasting hood before
lighting the barbecue.
Light the outside burners, ie: one burner at each end of
the barbecue. After lighting, close the hood and allow the
barbecue to reach the desired cooking temperature.
Preheating Guide
2 burner barbecue - turn both burners down fractionally
below medium.
Operating Your BeefEater Barbecue
Direct Cooking Method
Commonly used for traditional barbecuing. Place food over
the lit grill section. Excess flaring may occur and so care
must be taken while cooking. Check inside the roasting
hood regularly. We do not recommended this method for
roasts unless you place a baking dish under the roast. This
will allow flammable fats and juices to be isolated away
from the flame. The direct cooking method is recommended
for steaks, chops, sausages, and hamburgers.
3 burner barbecue - turn the central burner off and reduce
the two outside burners to medium.
4 burner barbecue - turn the two inside burners off and
reduce the two outside burners to medium.
5 burner barbecue - turn the three inside burners off, leave
one outside burner on high and reduce the other outside
burner to medium.
When the desired temperature is reached, open the
roasting hood and sit the roast on a roast rack and place
this into a baking dish. Place the baking dish over the unlit,
center portion of the cooking surface.

Cooking With The BeefEater Roasting
Hood cont.
If you are cooking a roast, it is always a good idea to use a
roast holder and baking dish. This will keep the meat away
from the direct heat source but allow the meat to cook by
convection. (This is essential in the case of the 2 burner
barbecue where the meat tray will be sitting over direct
heat). Note: Do not use a baking dish/tray with a depth
less than 35mm. Shallow trays will fill quickly and overflow,
which could cause a grease fire.
Note: Opening the Hood: The more the roasting hood is
opened to attend to cooking food the more heat will be lost,
lengthening the cooking time.
Do not use more than two burners on high at any one time.
This may cause damage to the barbecue and roasting hood.
The roasting hood can retain a great deal of heat and
therefore, constant monitoring is required. The barbecue
should be attended at all times.
There is sufficient heat generated by two burners, one
each end of the barbecue, to roast: lamb, pork, chicken,
turkey, etc. As a temperature guide, two burners on Low
will produce approximately 300°F (150°C) and two burners
on High will produce approximately 460°F (240°C). Windy
conditions and cold weather will also affect hot plate
temperature.
Temperature Warnings
Do not exceed the temperature warning on the temperature
gauge.
Operating the barbecue and roasting hood above
this temperature will discolour stainless steel
components and may cause damage to the
appliance. See the ‘Cleaning and Maintenance’
instructions for tips on how to clean stainless
steel.
Do not use more than two burners on high at any one time.
This may cause damage to the barbecue and roasting hood.
Operating the barbecue above

How Long Will The Gas In My Cylinder Last?
If you have a full cylinder of propane, just look at the table below to see how many hours of gas you have, depending
on how many burners you have alight. These figures. are approximate only
You may notice that if you have several burners alight and your cylinder becomes low on gas, the liquid may freeze up.
If this occurs, turn the cylinder and all burners off and wait till the liquid thaws. You may then reignite the burners.
