IMPORTANT SAFETY WARNINGS
WE WANT YOU TO ASSEMBLE AND USE YOUR COOKER AS SAFELY AS POSSIBLE.
THE PURPOSE OF THIS SAFETY ALERT SYMBOL
IS TO ATTRACT YOUR ATTENTION TO POSSIBLE HAZARDS AS YOU ASSEMBLE AND USE YOUR COOKER.
WHEN YOU SEE THE SAFETY ALERT SYMBOL, PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO THE INFORMATION WHICH FOLLOWS!
READ ALL SAFETY WARNINGS AND INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY
BEFORE ASSEMBLING AND OPERATING YOUR COOKER.
WARNING
• This cooker is to be used outdoors only. Do not operate indoors (house, tent, garage) or in any unventilated or
enclosed area. In windy weather, cooker should be located in an outdoor area that is protected from the wind.
• Only use cooker on a level, noncombustible, stable surface (concrete, ground, etc.) Do not use on wooden or other
surfaces that could burn. Do not place cooker within 10 feet of materials that could burn (house, fence, tall grass, etc.)
• Do not use on apartment balconies, patios, recreational vehicles, campers or boats.
• Propane gas is extremely flammable, follow these instructions:
• Use only LP gas cylinders marked "Propane" which are U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) certified.
• Always use the gas pressure regulator supplied with this product which is regulated for an outlet pressure of
15 PSI; the use of other regulators or no regulator could result in dangerous gas leakage.
• Check all gas connections by following directions in the "Gas Leak Testing" section on page 4 of this manual. Never
test for gas leaks with a lighted match or open flame. Do not operate this cooker with a gas leak.
• Propane is heavier than air and can accumulate in low places. Keep propane tank, at all times, in a well ventilated
area. If you smell gas – leave the area immediately and call for help.
• Turn the cooker "ON" and "OFF" with the propane tank valve; use the regulator control valve ONLY to adjust the
flame. Read all warnings on or accompanying propane tank.
• Never store propane tank in an enclosed area (house, garage, etc.). Store outdoors in a well ventilated, shaded
area, away from any heat source or open flame and away from children’s reach.
• Disconnect the propane tank from the cooker when not in use. A safety plug should be placed in the propane
tank valve.
• In case of grease fire, do not use water to extinguish flame. Turn gas OFF at propane tank and use fire extinguisher
approved for use with gas appliances or other appropriate means to extinguish flame.
• Keep hands, face and hair away from burner. Use long matches or long-nosed lighter to light the burner. Do not
wear loose clothing or allow long hair to hang freely while lighting or using cooker.
• Do not leave cooker unattended when hot or in use. Only adults are to operate this cooker; keep children and pets
safely away. Carefully monitor all activity around cooker to avoid burns or other injuries.
• Hot oil or liquid can cause severe burns and permanent disfigurement; use caution and common sense when
operating this product.
• Do not move cooker while in use or while pot contains hot liquid.

WARNING
• Avoid touching hot surfaces, wear oven mitts to protect your hands and non-slick shoes. Use caution when
walking or standing near cooker as splattered oil may have created a slick surface.
• Avoid bumping into cooker or boiling pot to prevent hot liquid spills or overturning cooker.
• Do not walk between cooker and propane tank as this creates a trip hazard. Tripping over the hose could overturn
the cooker or knock pot of hot liquid from cooker causing severe burns.
• Fully extend hose between propane tank and cooker to protect hose from contact with hot surfaces which could
create a leak. Never use a hose that shows signs of cracking or damage. Replace hose every two years.
• Only use flat bottom metal cookware and center evenly over burner. Never put an empty pot over an open flame;
the bottom of the pot could melt. Always have liquid in boiling pot prior to placing over flame. Do not use plastic,
ceramic or glassware. Any pot larger than the retaining ring will rest on top of the ring. Use caution to avoid
knocking pot from retaining ring.
• Do not fill cookware beyond one-half full with liquid to allow room for the addition of food and to avoid boil-over
of hot liquid. In some cases, depending on the weight or size of food, even less liquid will be required.
• Should oil spill-over/boil-over occur, be sure to check that flame was not extinguished by liquid. Gas could
accumulate creating a highly flammable and very dangerous situation. Allow all gas to dissipate prior to
relighting cooker.
• Smoking oil is an indication that the oil is too hot and may ignite. Reduce flame immediately to avoid igniting oil.
Never exceed 375° F.
• Frozen food should be completely thawed before placing in hot oil. Pat food dry before placing in hot oil. Never
add water or food that is dripping wet to hot oil as this could cause oil to splash and cause severe burns.
• Use extreme care when removing food from hot oil or liquid. Remove food from pot SLOWLY. As contents may
be heavy and oil may drip or splatter during removal, extra attention must be used during this process to avoid
overturning pot of hot liquid.
• After food is cooked, turn off cooker and remove food. Allow cooker, pot and liquid to cool completely
before handling.
• Do not use or store cooker near gasoline or other flammable liquids, gases or where flammable vapors may
be present.
• Do not use this cooker and boiling pot for other than its intended purpose.
• Only use replacement/accessory parts manufactured by The Brinkmann Corporation. Repairs should be
performed by The Brinkmann Corporation.
• Properly dispose of all packaging materials.
USE CAUTION AND COMMON SENSE WHEN OPERATING YOUR COOKER.
FAILURE TO ADHERE TO THE SAFETY WARNINGS AND GUIDELINES IN THIS MANUAL
COULD RESULT IN BODILY INJURY OR PROPERTY DAMAGE.

GAS LEAK TESTING
THE GAS LEAK TESTING PROCEDURE MUST BE PERFORMED
EVERY TIME THE TANK IS CONNECTED TO COOKER.
WARNING
•
Gas leak testing must be performed outdoors in a well ventilated area.
•
During the gas leak testing procedure, always keep unit away from open flames, sparks or lit
cigarettes.
•
Never use a flame to check for gas leaks.
•
If the burner does not light within 5 seconds, turn the propane tank valve and regulator control valve
off immediately. Always wait at least 5 minutes for gas fumes to dissipate before repeating
procedure.
•
Always use the propane tank valve to turn the unit ON and OFF. The regulator control valve is used
to adjust the flame ONLY.
•
Never use a unit that has a gas leak. Contact The Brinkmann Corporation’s Customer Service
Department for replacement parts at 1-800-527-0717.
Step 1
Make sure the propane tank valve and regulator control valve
are turned OFF.

Step 2
Make sure male SAE fitting is properly attached to air
shutter (refer to Assembly Instructions). Attach POL
fitting to tank (using f" wrench) and tighten by turning
COUNTER-CLOCKWISE.
Step 3
Prepare a soapy water solution (one part dishwashing liquid
to three parts water) to test for gas leaks in the hose and
connections. Apply a generous amount of the soapy mixture
to the regulator, POL fitting, control valve, the entire length of
hose and SAE fitting (located near the air shutter).
Step 4
With the regulator control valve in the “OFF” position, open
the propane tank valve two full turns (counter-clockwise).
Next, open the regulator control valve fully and check for
bubbles at control valve, along the entire length of hose and
at the SAE fitting. DO NOT LEAVE GAS ON FOR MORE THAN
10 SECONDS. If soapy mixture starts bubbling, gas is leaking
through the connection or hose. Turn the propane tank valve
OFF and retighten the connection that is leaking gas. Repeat
procedure with soapy mixture until gas no longer leaks.
NEVER USE A FLAME TO CHECK FOR GAS LEAKS. Turn the
propane tank valve OFF after each test.
Step 5
Once all gas leaks have been sealed, WAIT AT LEAST
5 MINUTES FOR GAS FUMES TO DISSIPATE BEFORE
LIGHTING THE BURNER.
NOTE:
POL fittings are made with
a metal to metal seal and
must be made very tight to
prevent leaking.
Watch For Bubbles
CAREFULLY FOLLOW “OPERATING
INSTRUCTIONS” ON PAGE 5 TO LIGHT THE
BURNER AND PROPERLY OPERATE THIS UNIT.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
PLACE THE COOKER OUTDOORS ON A HARD, LEVEL, NONCOMBUSTIBLE SURFACE AWAY FROM
ANY COMBUSTIBLE MATERIAL. IN WINDY WEATHER, THE COOKER SHOULD BE LOCATED IN
AN OUTDOOR AREA THAT IS PROTECTED FROM THE WIND. GAS LEAK TESTING PROCEDURE MUST BE
PERFORMED EVERY TIME THE COOKER IS USED.
READ ALL SAFETY WARNINGS AND INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY
BEFORE OPERATING YOUR COOKER.
WARNING: Only use flat bottom metal
cookware and center evenly
over burner. Never put an
empty pan over an open
flame; the bottom of the pan
could melt. Do not use
plastic, ceramic or
glassware. Any pan larger
than the retaining ring will
rest on top of the ring. Use
caution to avoid knocking
pan from retaining ring.
Regulator Control Valve
Step 1:
Make sure the regulator control valve is in “OFF” position.
Step 2:
Fill metal cookware with desired amount of water or oil. Never fill
pan more than half way to allow room for addition of food and to
avoid boil-over of hot liquids. Never place an empty pot/pan over an
open flame. Do not place pan on cooker at this time.
WARNING: Never fill the boiling pot more than half way to allow
room for addition of food and to avoid hot liquid from
boiling over and causing severe burns. Do not place an
empty boiling pot on heat source.
Step 3:
Open the propane tank valve two full turns. Using a long match,
hold the flame 2" above burner porthole. Open the regulator control
valve SLOWLY until the burner lights.
WARNING: If the burner does not light within 5 seconds, turn the
propane tank valve and regulator control valve OFF
immediately. Wait at least 5 minutes until gas fumes
have dissipated before attempting to light the burner
again.
Step 4:
After lighting the burner, open the regulator control valve until a
large yellow flame appears. Adjust the air shutter valve on the
cooker until the flame turns blue. Use the regulator control valve to
adjust the flame accordingly.
Step 5:
Place pot with liquid on cooker. The retaining ring allows placement
of a 14.5" (36.8 cm) diameter pot. Any pot larger than the retaining
ring will rest on the retaining ring of cooker.
NOTE: Due to the intense heat
from burner, it is normal
for paint to burn off and
discoloration to occur on
cooker during the first
few uses.

Step 6:
Bring oil or liquid to the desired cooking temperature. For best
results, use a deep fry thermometer to check oil/liquid temperature.
If oil begins to smoke, reduce the flame to avoid igniting the oil.
Never exceed 375°F (190° C).
Step 7:
Use pan/pot with a strainer basket or long handle skimmer to lower
food into hot liquid. Lower food into the pot slowly. Frozen foods
should be thawed to room temperature before placing in hot liquid.
The temperature of liquid will drop when food is added. Adjust the
flame to return to desired cooking temperature. When the desired
temperature is achieved, reduce the heat to maintain temperature.

WARNING: Frozen food should be completely thawed before
placing in hot oil. Pat food dry before placing in hot
oil. Never add water or food that is dripping wet to hot
oil as this could cause oil to splash and cause severe
burns.
Step 8:
Test food for doneness using a meat thermometer after removing
from hot liquid. Use caution as food will be very hot.
WARNING: Use extreme care when removing food from hot oil or
liquid. Remove food from pot slowly. As contents may
