Individually place the ‘Char-Master’ briquets in a
single layer evenly on your grill’s briquet rack;
DO NOT dump them onto the briquet rack. A
single layer of ‘Char-Master’ briquets is all that’s
needed. DO NOT overlap or stack the briquets.
See FIGURE 11.
After properly placing the ‘Char-Master’ briquets
on your grill’s briquet rack, there may be some
briquets left over. Save them for future use.
Before cooking, always preheat the grill as
directed by the grill’s operating instructions. Hot
briquets cause better, quicker cooking and
better flavor.
Cleaning
Routine preheating and routine burn-off (also
called postheating) of a grill will clean the ‘CharMaster’ briquets. Periodically turn the briquets
over while they are cool.

1. Raise the grill lid.
2. Light grill burner.
3. Burn on HI for ten minutes.
4. Close the lid and burn on HI for an additional
ten minutes.
5. Turn OFF gas. The grill is now ready for use.

preheat on HI for 5 minutes with the lid closed.
This uses very little fuel and hot briquette cook
quicker and provide better flavor.

each of its grills. The cookbook contains helpful
cooking tips and instructions as well as great
tasting recipes for preparing many delicious
foods on your grill.

Any electrical accessory should be equipped
with a three-prong (grounding) plug, and plugged
into a properly grounded three-prong receptacle
or wall outlet. Do not cut or remove the
grounding prong from the plug.
If an extension cord is required, use only a threeprong cord and plug into a properly grounded
receptacle as described above.
Do not expose an electrical accessory to water.
Avoid using any electrical accessory in wet
weather as it may present a shock hazard.
Keep any electrical cord and fuel supply hose
away from all heated surfaces.

MAINTENANCE
Cleaning the Grill
Venturi Tubes
CAUTION: TO
The venturi tubes allow air and gas to mix prior to
burning, thus ensuring an efficient flame. Spiders
or other small insects may build webs or nests
inside the tubes obstructing air flow. Fire, or
flashback, can occur, in and/or around obstructed
venturi tubes and can cause damage to
components beneath the grill or an unsafe
condition. To reduce risk, inspections and
cleaning should be performed at least twice
monthly when spiders are active. If the grill has
been unused for an extended period of time
inspect the tubes before using the grill.
NOTE: DO NOT USE A COMMERCIAL CLEANER ON THE
COOKING GRID. DO NOT BRUSH GRIDS WHILE THEY
ARE HOT. DO NOT SCRAPE GRIDS.
For baked on residue use a brass (NOT STEEL)
brush on the cooking grid and other components.
Burn Off
This process is much like that used in self-cleaning
ovens and is most efficient when completed after
each use of the grill.
CAUTION: DO NOT OPEN THE GRILL DURING THE BURN
OFF PROCESS. OPENING THE GRILL DURING THE BURN
OFF PROCESS MAY CAUSE A SUDDEN GREASE FIRE
FLARE UP THAT COULD BURN YOUR FACE AND ARMS.
WAIT UNTIL THE GRILL HAS COOLED BEFORE OPENING.
1. Turn gas knob to HI. Close lid and allow the
grill to burn for ten minutes, or until no smoke
is present. Do not allow the grill to burn for
more than 30 minutes.
2. Turn gas knob and supply to OFF and allow
the grill to cool.
3. Wipe COOL grill with a damp cloth to remove
soot.
Grill Bottom
Periodically remove cooking grids and flare guard
to clean the interior of the grill. Scrape off baked
on residue with a putty knife or brass brush and
rinse with water. Clean the bottom air holes with a
small knife.
Clean venturi tubes as follows:
1. Remove the cooking grids and briquette rack.
2. Remove the burner from the grill.
3. Lay the burner face down and remove the four
retaining screws from the venturi tube plate
and the burner. FIGURE 16.
4. Use a small flexible brush to remove any
debris for the tube(s).
5. Flush with water.
6. Allow the tube(s)
to dry before
reinstalling.
7. Reinstall the
venturi tubes
and burner.

Burner Maintenance
Stainless steel burners often turn reddish brown
after use. This does not effect the performance of
the grill. When cleaning the interior of the grill,
remove the burners and clean with a brass brush.
Wash with water and a mild detergent.
Grease Tray
Empty periodically. Replacement tray liners can
be purchased at most supermarkets where
disposable aluminum baking pans are displayed.
Page 20
Clean regularly with a solution of mild detergent
and hot water. Touch-up paint is available from
your dealer. Broilmaster® protective covers are
recommended. Stainless steel components can
be easily cleaned with a spray-on stainless steel
cleaner found in most hardware stores.
Briquettes
If the briquettes did not come clean during burn
off, after cooling turn them over. The residue will
burn off during warm-up for the next use.
