10
CONTROLLING FLARE-UPS:
•
Flare-ups are a part of cooking meats on a gas grill. This adds to the unique flavor of cooking on a
gas grill. Excessive flare-ups can over-cook your food and cause a dangerous situation for you or
your grill. Excessive flare-ups result from the build-up of grease in the bottom of your grill. If this
should occur, DO NOT pour water onto the flames. This can cause the grease to splatter and could
result in serious burns or bodily harm. When grease fires occur close the lid and turn off the burner
until the grease burns out. Use caution when opening the lid as sudden flare-ups may occur.
WARNING
•
DO NOT leave your grill unattended while in use.
•
DO NOT move grill when in use. Lock wheels in place to stabilize grill.
•
DO NOT use water to extinguish flare-ups.
•
Have fire extinguisher readily accessible suitable for use with gas appliances.
TO MINIMIZE FLARE-UPS:
•
Trim excess fat from meats prior to cooking.
•
Cook meats with high fat contents (chicken or pork) on Low settings or indirectly.
•
Ensure that your grill is on level ground and the grease is allowed to evacuate the grill through the
drain hole in the bottom
WARNING
11
•
DO NOT store a spare LP gas cylinder (filled or empty) under or near the grill.
•
Never store flammable liquids or spray canisters under or near the grill.
•
DO NOT extinguish grease fires using water.
WARNING
TRANSPORTING AND STORAGE:
•
Never move a grill when it is hot or when objects are on the cooking surfaces.
•
Make sure that cylinder valve is shut off. After moving the grill check that all gas connections
are free of leaks. Check the venturi tubes to ensure they are properly connected to the valves
and the orifices are inside the venturi tube.
Follow the instructions listed below.
BEFORE STORING YOUR GRILL:
•
Ensure that the fuel supply tank valve is fully closed.
•
Clean all surfaces.
•
Lightly coat the burner with cooking oil to prevent excess rusting.
•
If storing the grill indoors, disconnect the LP tank and leave the LP tank OUTDOORS.
•

of direct sunlight.
•
If storing the grill outdoors, cover the grill with a grill cover for protection from
the weather. A grill cover can be purchased by contacting: The Brinkmann Corporation at
1-800-527-0717.
CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE:
•
For safe grilling and peak performance of your grill, perform these checks at least twice per year or
after extended periods of storage.
HARDWARE
•
Be sure to tighten up all hardware (nuts, bolts, screws, etc.) at least twice per year.
12
BURNER AND VENTURI
•
Although your burner is constructed of cast iron, it will rust as a result of the extreme heat and acids
from cooking foods. Regularly inspect the burner for cracks, abnormal holes, and other signs of corrosion damage. If found, replace the burner.
•
Venturi tube can become blocked by spiders and other insects building their nests. Blocked venturi
tubes can prevent gas flow to the burner and could possibly result in a venturi fire. To clean the
venturi, remove the ash guard/grease cup holder plate from between the legs. Then, remove the three
retaining bolts from the bottom of the burner and remove the burner from the grill. Use a pipe cleaner
or a small wire and insert into the opening of the venturi. Remove any obstructions that may exist.
Replace the burner, ash guard/grease cup holder plate and follow the “Gas Leak Testing” section of
this manual.
COOKING GRILLS
•
Clean with mild soap detergent and water. A brass bristled brush or a nylon cleaning pad can be used
to remove residue from the chrome plated cooking surface. Do not use steel wire bristles to clean the
chrome plated cooking grill. Steel can cause the chrome plating to chip or crack. DO NOT use a
commercial oven cleaner.
HEAT SHIELD
•
13
Periodically, it may be necessary to inspect and clean the heat shield to prevent excess grease build-up.
When the grill is cold, remove the cooking grill. Inspect the heat shield and replace if broken or
damaged. Do not allow heat shield to become damaged to the extent that it may fall through onto the
burner. Replace the heat shield and cooking grill and light the burner. Operate the grill on "HIGH" for 10
minutes to remove the excess grease.

baste to tender perfection. When grilling or smoking, simply place
poultry on rack atop the grill. Makes carving easier, too.

roasts, briskets and turkeys without cutting into the meat. Commercialquality thermostat features an easy-to-read 2 3/4"
