L.P. GAS INSTALLATION
Perfect Flame™ Gas Grills that are set to operate with L.P. gas come with a high capacity hose and regulator assembly. (Note: Only use the pressure regulator and hose assembly supplied with the grill or a
replacement pressure regulator and hose assemblies specified by the manufacture).
This assembly is designed to connect directly to a standard 20 lb. L.P. cylinder. L.P. Cylinders are not included with the grill. L.P.
Cylinders they can be purchased separately at an independent dealer.
LP hose/ regulator supplied
(Type 1 connector)
L.P. TANK INFORMATION
Never use a dented or rusted L.P. tank or cylinder with a damaged valve.
L.P. cylinders are equipped with an O.P.D (Overfilling Prevention Device). The device shuts off the flow of gas to a cylinder after 80% capacity is reached. This limits the potential for release of gas when the cylinder is heated, averting a fire or possible injury.
The L.P. cylinder must have a shut-off valve terminating in an L.P. gas supply cylinder outlet specified, as applicable, for connection No. 510 in the standard for compressed gas cylinder valve outlet and inlet connection ANSI/CGA-V-1. Cylinders must not be stored in a building, garage, or any other enclosed area. (The
L.P. cylinder must have an overfill protection device, OPD, and a collar to protect the cylinder valve.)
The L.P. gas supply cylinder must be constructed and marked in accordance with the specifications for L.P. gas cylinders of the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) or the National Standard of Canada, CAN/
CAS-B339, “ Cylinders, Spheres and Tubes for the Transportation of Dangerous Goods and Commission.”
L.P. TANK USE
• When turning the L.P. tank on, make sure to open the valve SLOWLY two (2) complete turns to insure proper gas flow. Most gas tanks now come equipped with a leak detector mechanism internal to the tank, when gas is allowed to escape rapidly it shuts off the gas supply. Opening the valve rapidly may simulate a gas leak, causing the safety device to activate, restricting gas flow causing low flames. Opening the valve slowly will insure this safety feature is not falsely triggered.
• When not in use, gas supply cylinder valve is to be in the “ OFF” position.
• The tank supply system must be stored upright to allow for vapor withdrawal.
• The regulator and hose assembly must be inspected before each use of the grill. If there is excessive abrasion or wear or if the hose is cut, it must be replaced prior to the grill being used again.
• 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.
• Only a qualified gas supplier should refill the L.P.
DO NOT store a spare L.P. gas cylinder under or near the grill. Never fill the cylinder beyond 80% full.
• Place dust cap on cylinder valve outlet whenever the cylinder is not in use. Only install the type of dust cap on the cylinder valve outlet that is provided with
If this information is not followed exactly, a fire causing death or serious injury may occur.
the cylinder valve. Other types of caps or plugs may result in leakage of propane.
Pre Operation Leak Testing
Although all gas connections on the grill are leak tested prior to shipment, a complete gas tightness check must be performed at the installation site due to possible shifting during shipment, installation or excessive pressure unknowingly being applied to the unit. Periodically check the whole system for leaks and immediately check the system if the smell of gas is detected.
1. Do not smoke while leak testing.
2. Extinguish all open flames.
3. Never leak test with an open flame.
4. Mix a solution of equal parts mild detergent or liquid soap and water.
1. Turn off the burner control knobs.
2. Turn the top knob of the fuel supply cylinder counter-clockwise (right to left) two (2) rotations to open.
3. Apply the soap solution to connections of the fuel supply assembly. If no soap bubbles appear, there is no gas leak. If bubbles form at the connections, a leak is detected. If a leak is detected, immediately turn off the gas supply, tighten any leaking fittings, turn gas on, and repeat steps 1-3.
4. Turn off the knob on the fuel supply cylinder.
5. Turn on the burner control knobs for a moment to release the pressure in the hose, then turn the control knobs back off.
6. Wash off soapy solution with cold water and towel dry.
Check all gas supply fittings before each use and each time the gas supply cylinder is connected to the regulator. Have a qualified service technician leak test the grill any time a part of the gas system is replaced.
Also it is recommended to perform a leak test at least once a year whether or not the L.P. gas supply cylinder has been disconnected.
When leak testing this appliance, make sure to test and tighten all loose connections. A slight leak in the system can result in a low flame, or hazardous condition. Most L.P. gas tanks now come equipped with a leak detector mechanism internal to the tank, when gas is allowed to escape rapidly, it shuts off the gas supply. A leak may significantly reduce the gas flow making the grill difficult to light or causing low flames.
If you cannot stop a gas leak turn off the gas supply and call your local gas company or the dealer you purchased the appliance from. If necessary, replace the faulty part with the manufacturer’s recommended replacement part. A slight leak could cause a fire.
Do not use the grill in garages, breezeways, sheds or any enclosed area. Never operate the grill in enclosed areas as this could lead to a carbon monoxide buildup, which could result in injury or death. Place the grill on a level surface. Avoid moving the grill while it is in operation.
NOTE: The grill will operate best if it is not facing directly into the wind.
Clearance to combustible construction - A minimum of 24" from the sides and back must be maintained from the gas grill above and below the cooking surface to adjacent vertical combustible construction.
Clearance to non-combustible construction - A minimum of 10" clearance from the back of the grill to non-combustible construction is required for the lid to fully open.
Storage of an outdoor gas cooking appliance indoor is permissible only if the cylinder is disconnected and removed from the appliance.
Heat and smoke exhaust out of the back of the grill hood opening.
Make sure not to have the grill back facing your home or anything that could be damaged by heat or smoke.

1. Make sure the grill has been leak tested and is properly located.
2. Light the grill burners using the instructions provided in this manual.
3. Turn the control knobs to desired temperature “High, Medium, or Low” and preheat the grill for 10 minutes before cooking.
4. Adjust heat settings to meet your cooking needs for desired results.
5. Allow grill to cool down, wipe off any splatters or grease and clean the drip tray as needed.
6. Do not put a cover on the grill while it is still hot as it could start a fire.
Lighting the Grill do not attempt to "Light" the grill if the odor of gas present!!
BEFORE AND AFTER LIGHTING
1. Ensure your grill is located on a level surface.
2. Keep the gas grill area clean and free from combustion materials, gasoline, and other flammable vapors and liquids.
3. Ensure nothing is obstructing the flow of combustion and ventilation air.
4. Ensure the ventilation of the cylinder enclosure are free and clear of debris.
5. Visually check burner flames.
Check the gas supply line for cuts, wear or abrasion.

GRILL BURNER LIGHTING
Lighting the Grill with electronic igniter
1. Make sure all control knobs are in the “OFF” position.
2. Open the gas supply valve located on top of your L.P. tank.
ATTENTION: When turning the L.P. tank on, make sure to open the valve very SLOWLY 2 complete turns to insure proper gas flow.
3. Always open the hood before attempting to light.
4. Push and turn one of the control knobs counter-clockwise to the “HIGH” position and immediately press the electronic igniter button. You will hear a snapping sound. It may be necessary to hold the electronic starter button for about 4 seconds.
NOTE: If the burner does not light in 4 seconds, turn the knob to the “OFF” position and wait
5 minutes before trying again.
5. Repeat above steps to light remaining burners.
If by chance the electronic igniter does not light the burner, the burner may be lit with a match attached to the match extender, located on the inside of the cart door.
Remove the main cooking grate, anti-flare screen flavor grid, Keep your face as far away from the grill surface as possible and pass the match extender to the ports of the main burner tubes. Position the match near the burner ports and push and turn the control knob counter-clockwise to the “HIGH” position. After the burner has lit, turn the knob to the "LOW" position and carefully place the flavor grid screen and grate back in position. Then turn the control knob to the desired setting.
If the grill will not light after several attempts see the trouble-shooting section of this manual.
Turn the control knobs to the OFF position when not in use.
Keep any electrical supply cords and the fuel supply away from any heated surfaces.
Using the Rotisserie Burner
The grill rotisserie system is designed to cook items from the back using infrared heat. The rotisserie burner is an infrared type which provides intense searing radiant heat. Preferred by chefs over other cooking methods, this intense heat sears in the natural juices and nutrients found in quality cuts of meats.
Remove the warming rack from the grill when using the rotisserie to prevent warping from the intense heat of the infrared unit.
NOTE: The rotisserie spit rod is centered between the grill hood and the burners. It may be necessary to remove the grates, anti-flare screen flavor grids when cooking larger portions of meat on the rotisserie. This is by design, since this configuration gives you the most possible room above and below the rod for larger pieces of meat.
Once lit, the rotisserie burner will reach cooking temperature in 1 minute. The orange/red glow will even out in about 5 minutes. The rotisserie motor is equipped with metal gears and is capable of turning up to 8 lbs. of food. The motor is mounted on a bracket on the left side of the grill by sliding the motor over the bracket with the cord facing the back of the grill. Make sure the rotisserie motor is completely seated on the bracket prior to operating. Make sure the rotisserie cord is away from any hot surfaces.
wARNING Electrical Grounding Instructions
This appliance (rotisserie motor) is equipped with a three-prong (grounding) plug for your protection against shock hazard and should be plugged directly into a properly grounded three-prong receptacle. do not cut or remove the grounding prong from this plug.
ATTACHING THE ROTISSERIE
The motor is mounted on a bracket on the left side of the grill by sliding the motor over the bracket with the cord facing the back of the grill. (See Fig. 1)
With the rotisserie motor in place and plugged into an electrical outlet, it is now ready to operate. Slide one of the meat forks onto the rod (prongs facing away from the rounded end). Push the rod through the center of the food, then slide the second meat fork onto the rod
(prongs toward the food). Center the food to be cooked on the rod, then push the meat forks firmly together.
Tighten the thumb screws. It may also be necessary to wrap food with butcher’s string, (never use nylon or plastic string) to secure loose portions. (See Fig. 2)
Once the food is secure, insert the pointed end of the rotisserie rod into the motor assembly and rest the other end on the support on the right-hand side of the grill. (If needed, remove the cooking grates, anti-flare screen and flavor grids for more room). Turn the power switch to the “ON” position to start the rotisserie motor.
NOTE: Remove the rotisserie when not in use.
Store the unit indoors when not in use. Remove warming shelf when using rotisserie.
Pointed end of the rod
do not use the rotisserie in the rain.
Open the lid. Push and turn the control knob for the rotisserie counter-clockwise to the “HIGH” position.
Continue push the knob and wait 5 seconds. You’ll hear a snapping sound. If the burner does not light in 4 seconds, turn the control knob to "OFF" and wait 5 minutes before trying again. Once lit, turn the control knob to the desired setting. (See Fig. 27)
If the igniter does not function, the burner can be lit by holding a lit match to the burner while the control knob is turned counter-clockwise to “HIGH”. (See Fig. 28)
NOTE: After the first use the stainless steel around the burner will darken. This is a normal reaction of premium stainless steel due to heat and is not a defect. The infrared panel will also darken after initial use. This is also a normal occurrence.
NOTE: do not operate the main burners and infrared back burner at the same time. This can cause warping of the roll top grill hood.
Bottom Infrared Cooking Tips
Even with an expert chef, infrared cooking can be quite a challenge. If you follow these simple suggestions, you will soon be making juicier, more savory foods than you have ever experienced before. In general, foods will cook in less time then they would take an ordinary grill. If you rotate food regularly (about every 2 minutes), extreme charring is avoided.
Infrared grills work by producing concentrated heat which quickly sears the meat. Searing holds in flavor and juices while allowing the surface to soak in smoke and food aroma that is produced as grease and drippings are vaporized by the infrared burner. The outcome is a crisp, savorful exterior with a tender, moist interior - just the outcome you want with most grilled foods.
HOW TO GRILL WITH BOTTOM INFRARED BURNER
• Place food on grilling surface and turn every 2 to 2 1/2 minutes until food is cooked to desired doneness. Do not let food cook more than 2 1/2 minutes without turning.
• Perfect cross sear marks can be made by rotating food 90°
We recommend that you
turn food being grilled on an infrared burner every
two minutes during the cooking period. Never
allow food to cook more

These are recommended times only. Due to variations in cuts of meat and personal taste, your cooking times may vary. Use your discretion when using your infrared burner.
NEVER ATTEMPT TO CONTROL A FLARE-UP DOUSING WITH WATER. BURNER DAMAGE
WILL RESULT AND VOID YOUR WARRANTY.
With proper care, flare-ups should not present a problem with your grill. Minimize flare-ups by:
• Properly pre-heating the grill
• Trimming excess fat from meat
• Cleaning grill regularly to avoid grease build-up
• Repositioning meat during cooking
If flare-up occurs, move meat to a different portion of the grill until the flare-up is under control.
Using the Grill Light
Always unplug light cord when not in use.
wARNING do Not use grill light in the rain.

TO INFRAREd BURNER
INFRAREd BURNER CLEANING
After each use, it is necessary to burn the bottom infrared burner with the hood open for at least five minutes to vaporize any food drippings or particles. Failure to perform this step will damage the burner. It may occasionally be necessary to brush, blow, or vacuum accumulated ash from the burner surface. Do so carefully and only when the burner is cool.
Never allow water to contact t h e i n f r a r e d b u r n e r a s damage will result. water damage is not covered by your warranty.
PROTECTION OF INFRARED BURNERS
The burners of your grill are designed to provide a long life of satisfactory performance. However, there are steps you must take to prevent cracking of the burner's ceramic surfaces, which will cause the burners to malfunction. The following are the most common causes of cracks and the steps you must take to avoid them.
Damage caused by failure to follow these steps is not covered by your grill warranty.
IMPACT WITH HARD OBJECTS -
Never allow hard objects to strike the ceramic. You should take particular care when inserting or removing cooking grids and accessories into or from the grill. If objects such as these fall onto ceramic, it is likely to crack the ceramic.
IMPAIRED VENTILATION OF HOT AIR FROM GRILL -
In order for the burners to function properly, hot air created by the burners must have a way to escape, the burners may become deprived of oxygen, causing them to backfire, especially if the burner output is set at HIGH. If this occurs repeatedly, the burners may crack. This is the reason your grill was designed with ventilation louvers. These design features give the hot air an escape route. Accordingly, never operate your grill with very little or no open space at the cooking surface (the cooking grids provide sufficient space).
Also, never cover the ventilation louvers with foil or other materials that prevent air flow. Specifically, do not cover the entire surface with foil, a large pan, etc.
- Keep outdoor cooking gas appliance area clear and free from combustible materials, gasoline and other flammable vapors and liquids.
- Do not obstruct the flow of combustion and ventilation air.
- Keep the ventilation openings of the cylinder enclosure free and clear from debris.
- Visually check the burners
Soft blue flames
O u t o f A d j u s t m e n t : H a r d b l u e flames- too much air
poor Combustion: wavy, yellow flames- too little air
Care and Maintenance
Outdoors can be very harsh on the granite of your grill. There are things visible that can affect the granite like dirt and pollen and things not visible like UV Rays. Please follow these instructions to preserve the granites natural beauty:
- Granite is a hard, non-porous natural stone and is relatively not affected by harsh chemicals however it is recommended to use a neutral cleaner or stone soap (available in hardware stores or from a stone dealer), or a mild dishwashing liquid and warm water.
- Use a soft, clean cloth to clean the granite. Rinse after washing with the soap solution and dry with a soft, clean cloth.
- Blot up spills immediately, before they penetrate the surface.
- Clean as often as needed to keep grime and dirt removed.
- Granite must be sealed to prevent or minimize staining and/or fading. Leaving granite unsealed may make it difficult to remove stains in the future. It is recommended to seal your granite outdoors every 4-6 months depending on climate conditions.
IMPORTANT: Before cleaning, make sure all controls are off and the grill is cool. Always follow label instructions on cleaning products.
For routine cleaning, wash with soap and water using a soft cloth or sponge. Rinse with clean water and dry at once with a soft, lint-free cloth to avoid spots and streaks.
To avoid scratching the surface, do not use steel wool to clean the grill.
Use the vinyl grill cover to protect finish from weather.
The drip tray should be cleaned periodically to prevent heavy buildup of debris.
NOTE: Allow the drip tray to cool before attempting to clean.
Important: Do not leave the grill outside during inclement weather unless it is covered. Rain water can collect inside of the grill, the grill cart or the drip tray if left uncovered. If the drip tray is not cleaned after use and the grill is left uncovered, the drip tray will fill with water causing grease and water to spill into the grill cart. We recommend cleaning and storing the drip tray after every use.
The cooking grates can be cleaned immediately after cooking is completed and after turning off the grill. Wear a barbecue mitt and scrub the cooking grates with a damp cloth. If the grill is allowed to cool down, cleaning the grates will be easier if removed from the grill and cleaned with a mild detergent.
Care and Maintenance
After initial usage, areas of the grill may discolor from the intense heat given off by the burners, this is normal.
Purchase a mild stainless steel cleaner and rub in the direction of the grain of the metal. Specks of grease can gather on the surface of the stainless steel and bake on to the surface and give a worn appearance. For removal, use a non-abrasive oven cleaner in conjunction with a stainless cleaner.
NOTE: Always scrub in the direction of the grain.
Certain parts of your grill have a porcelain coating. Porcelain is a glass-based product, and is highly durable to standard wear and tear. However, porcelain is sensitive to concussive blows, which can create interlaced micro-fractures, or “spider-webs.” Please take care not to strike any porcelain covered parts with solid objects, drop them, or create any other concussive blows. These interlaced micro-fractures are common and may lead to minor chipping. Neither the chipping nor the interlaced micro-fractures will adversely affect the performance of your grill, and are not covered under the warranty for porcelain parts.
The light bulbs in your grill will need to be replaced occasionally.
Only use the light bulbs supplied with the grill or a replacement light specified by the manufacture.
Light bulb replacement instructions:
1, Unplug the light cord.
2, Open the lid, remove the self-tapping screw holding the glass cover in place.
3, Remove glass cover and light bulb.
4, Reinstall the new light bulb, glass cover and screw.
Always unplug light cord when not in use.
wARNING do Not use grill light in the rain.
Grill will not light
1. Push the igniter button and check for sparks.
2. If there is a spark, check to make sure gas is supplied to the burner.
a. Purge the line of any trapped air.
b. Check to see if you can match-light the burner.
c. Check to see that the other burners operate.
d. Visually check the electrode and wire while pushing the igniter button. If a spark occurs anywhere but the ignitor trip, the ignitor must be replaced.
Burner flame is yellow and gas odor can be smelled
1. Check the burner inlet for obstruction, especially for spiders and other insects.
2. Check the air shutter for proper adjustment.
3. Check for the source of gas leaks.
1. Hood up when grilling.
2. Keep knobs on low.
3. Turn one burner off if neccessary.
4. Post heat grill for 10-15 minutes, this will burn off drippings.
5. Use meats containing less fat.
6. Always grill chicken on low, meat side down for 20 minutes and turn to skin side for another 20 minutes. follow above steps.
7. If flare up continues, move meats to warming rack until flame sttles down.
8. Never spray water on gas flames - it will destroy your grill.
Burner blows out
1. Check for any burner defects.
2. Check for proper burner installation.
3. Make certain the fuel mixture is not too lean.
4. Make sure the gas supply is sufficient.
5. See if the LP tank is empty.
Low heat, LP gas
The propane regulator assembly incorporates an excess flow device designed to supply the grill with sufficient gas flow under normal conditions, yet control excess gas flow.
Rapid changes in pressure can trgger the excess flow device, providing a low flame and low temperature. If the tank valve is turned open to allow gas flow while a burner valve is open, the surge of pressure will cause the device to activate. The device will remain closed until the pressure is equalized. This should occur within 5 seconds.
To ensure this does not cause difficulty in lighting the grill, follow these instructions:
1. Make sure all burner valves are "OFF".
2. Open the tank valve and wait 5 seconds.
3. Light the burner one at a time following the lighting instructions .
Low heat, natural gas
Low heat generated with knob in "HI" position
Gas pressure is affected by gas line and length of gas line from house gas line. Follow the recommendations in the chart below.
Up to 25'
From House to Grill
2/3" of run 3/4"
1/3" of run 1/2"
1. Make certain the problem is isolated to only one burner. If it appears so, clean the orifice and the burner, clearing ports of any obstruction.
2. Check for a bent or kinked fuel hose.
3. Make sure the air shutter is properly adjusted.
4. Check for proper gas supply and pressure.
5. Pre-heat the grill for full 15 minutes.
6. If using LP gas, check for an empty tank.
