The following components are optional and not included in the carton: a. Optional fire grate divider (Fig. 12) b. Optional plate setter (Fig. 13) c. Ceramic grill feet (Fig. 14 for use with grill table and cabinet) 4. The grill can be mounted in a roll around cart, table or cabinet system offered by Gourmet Guru Grill. 5. SAFETY NOTICE: The grill lower section and lid are heavy so getting help when handling these two sections during assembly is strongly advised. 6. Set the grill lower section (fig. 1) in the cart table or cabinet. In the case of the GGG cabinet or table, the four ceramic mounting feet supplied with them should be set equal distance around the grill base perimeter and then set the lower grill section on the feet. Ceramic feet kits may also be purchased separately. 7. Align the lower section with the cabinet, table or cart as shown in the pictures below. The yellow indexing dot on the lower section can be used to center the grill. 8. Set the upper grill section on top of the lower grill section and align so that yellow indexing dot on the lid and lower section are aligned and the green hinge indexing dots on the rear of both sections are aligned. 9. Loosen the tensioning bolts on the upper and lower section bands. 10. Remove the 8 acorn nuts from the both bands at the back of of the grill and install the hinge with open side of the hinge facing down (see picture below) on the lower band first and then the upper band. Only tighten the acorn nuts enough to hold the hinge on the band at this time. You may need to loosen the bolts holding the upper lower sections of the hinge together to make it easier to install the hinge. Tighten all 8 nuts on the hinge. Loosen the top band more if you have difficulty aligning holes. 11. Check alignment of the upper and lower grill sections and rotate the upper section to align if need be. Tighten band tension bolts. 12. Remove the acorn nuts from the front of the upper band and install the handle assembly with logo on handle oriented correctly. 13. Raise and lower the lid to make sure that the lid operates freely and that the lid sits firmly on the lower section all the way around the perimeter of the grill. If there is a gap, close the lid. Loosen the band bolts slightly and retightened. 14. Open the lid, remove the retainer clip from the thermometer and insert the thermommeter through the opening towards the top front of the lid. Resinstall the retainer clip, open side down, as shown below. 15.Open the lid and install the firebox in the lower grill section orientating the ash removal opening in the firebox to match up with the draft door at the bottom of the lower section. 16. Install fire grate in the bottom of the firebox as shown below with the beveled side of the grate facing down. If you purchased the fire grate divider with your grill and want to use it now you can install as shown below. The divider allows you to use less charcoal for cooking smaller portions or create cooking and warming sections on the cooking grate. 17. Install the fire ring on top of the firebox as shown below. 18. Install the cooking grate on top of the fire ring as shown below. The hinged section allows you to add more charcoal while cooking if necessary, suggest that it be possitioned at the front of the grill. 19. Close the lid and install the metal top vent if you are going to use the grill now. The purpose of the ceramic vent cap is to prevent rain from entering the grill when not in use. 20. If you purchased the optional plate setter, it has multiple uses. It can be installed with the legs down for baking operation such as pizza with an optional pizza stone or with legs up with cooking grate on top of legs for indirect cooking or smoking as shown below. Baking Indirect Heating/Smoking 21. You’re now ready to enjoy cooking on your Gourmet Guru Grill! Fig. 1 Fig. 2 Fig. 4 Fig. 7 Fig. 11 Fig. 3 Fig. 5 Fig. 8 Fig. 12 Fig. 6 Fig. 9 Fig. 10 Fig. 13 Ceramic Feet For Table & Cabinet Only Safe Operation (Read before using your grill) Some components of the grill can reach temperatures capable of causing burns including portions of the ceramic body. Always exercise caution when working around hot surfaces and wear heat resistant gloves when removing any hot cooking components such a plate setters, baking plates or cooking grates. When removing hot cooking components, set them on surfaces that will not be damaged by heat or where someone or a pet might inadvertently contact them and be burned. Locate your grill on a level surface away from combustible materials such as plants, weeds, overhanging tree branches and flammable materials. It is recommended that you mount your grill in a GGG table cart, table or cabinet that is designed to provide stable support for the grill. Never move your grill while the charcoal is still hot. Move your grill, pull rather than push the table cart, table (if equipped with casters) or cabinet. Caution: The grill is very heavy with high center of gravity, exercise caution. Casters on the cart, table and cabinets are designed for hard surfaces and not meant for use on grass, gravel or sand surfaces. You may need to remove the grill from its support system and have assistance to move it across these types of terrain. When opening the grill lid when hot, always raise the lid slightly two or three times first to allow air to enter slowly to avoid backdrafts/flashbacks which could cause burns. Be careful when opening the lid after you have closed the vents with the charcoal still hot as the atmosphere inside the grill is oxygen poor and the inrush of air from opening the lid can cause a dangerous flare-up similar to throwing fuel on a fire. Heat resistant gloves are recommended when opening the lid. Never position you face over the top vent when the grill is in operation. The gases exiting the vent are very hot and can cause burns or singe your hair. Your eyes are especially vulnerable to the hot gases. Use a cooking grate removal tool especially designed for this purpose rather than trying to pick the grate up from the edge. Never remove charcoal from the firebox or attempt to adjust the firebox or fire ring while the charcoal is still hot. Do not clean ash out of the grill while the charcoal is hot. Do not cook without the having the draft door and metal vent open or with the chimney vent off the grill. The temperature is controlled by adjusting the draft and chimney vent positions. The spark arrestor screen should always be closed during grill operation to prevent sparks from exiting the draft door possibly starting a fire. Always cook with the lid closed. Controlling the cooking temperature will be nearly impossible with the lid open. Do not use water to extinguish burning charcoal. Just close the draft door and top vent and let the fire starve out. Never use lighter fluid or any other flammable liquids in the grill. Either use an electric charcoal starter or paraffin/sawdust starter blocks especially made for this service. Always use lump type charcoal, do not use charcoal briquettes made for metal grills. Doing so will void the grill warranty. It is recommended that the grill be supported only in Gourmet Guru Grill table carts, tables or cabinets that are designed to hold the grill. Never set a grill directly on or close to a combustible surfaces such as wood. Clear combustible debris such as leaves and grass away from your grill. Never leave the grill unattended with the lid open as dead leaves from trees or other combustible material could find their way into the grill and it presents a burn hazard to young children and pets. Never use your grill in a confined space where toxic gasses or oxygen depletion can occur such as a closed garage without proper ventilation. Consult local fire codes regarding use of charcoal cookers inside of structures. Always have a fire extinguisher close by in case an unforeseen accident should occur. Don’t let a cooking accident spoil your cookout. Safety First, Last, Always! Let’s Get Started Preparation Complete assembly of your grill and whichever support system (cart/table, table or cabinet) you are using. Inspect the gaskets on lid and lower section to make sure they are not damaged. Remove the vent cover from the chimney and install the metal vent cap. Open the vent louvers fully. Open the draft door fully, leave the spark arrestor fully in the closed position. Charging and lighting the grill Remove the cooking grid and fill the fire box with 100% American oak and hickory premium select hardwood lump charcoal. If you are using paraffin/sawdust charcoal lighter blocks, place one or two blocks in the center of the charcoal and light it. Reinstall the cooking grate and close the lid once it is apparent the charcoal has lit. If you are using a charcoal lighter, bury the lighter in the charcoal and plug it in to a GFI outlet. Unplug and remove the lighter once it is apparent the charcoal has lit and set the lighter aside to cool where it will not contact combustible surfaces or someone or pets may accidently touch the hot surface. Reinstall the cooking grid and close the lid. NOTE: Use heat resistant gloves for this step. Adjust the open area of the draft door and top vent to reduce air flow to hold the desired cooking temperature once your desired cooking temperature has been reached. Experience will teach you how much to adjust the draft door and top vent openings over time. If you are cooking or smoking for a very long time and need to add charcoal you can do so by either using a grate removal tool to remove the cooking grate and then add more charcoal or you can move the food enough to clear the door on the cooking grate then raise the grate door and add charcoal. Remember to burp the lid by raising and lowering it slightly two or three times when opening the lid to avoid potential flashbacks. When you are done cooking, using gloves once again, close the draft door and top vents. The charcoal will self-extinguish once all the oxygen is used up in the grill. Restarting the grill. You will likely need to add additional charcoal before igniting the charcoal. Remove the cooking grid and use the ash rake tool accessory to rake the coals back an forth on the fire grate allowing the ash to fall through the fire grate into the grill plenum. Make sure charcoal is extinguished. Open the draft door and spark suppressor fully and use the ash rake to remove ash though the draft door opening onto an ash pan which in turn can be dumped in a ash can. Close the spark suppressor screen immediately when done. Repeat the same grill charging and lighting process as you used the first time you used your grill. Maintaining Your Grill Interior Components The interior walls, firebox and fire ring will darken with use and should rarely require any kind of cleaning. Most cooking splatter will be burned off and ash will fall into the grill plenum. The firebox and fire ring also do not normally require cleaning; removing them may expose them to damage if you should drop them which is not covered by the grill warranty. The fire grate is heavy duty and should last for many grilling sessions. Replacement grates as well as other components are available from your GGG dealer or online at www.gourmetgurugrill.com. Exterior Components The grill exterior can be washed with soapy water. Applying a drop or two of oil to the hinge pivot bolts occasionally will keep the lid easy to lift. Occasionally check all hardware fasteners to make sure that they are tight. One exception are the hinge pivot bolts which should be adjusted so that the lid has good side to side stability yet not tight enough to hinder raising the lid. Replacement components such as thermometer, handle assembly, hinge, draft door, top vent and top vent cover are available from your GGG dealer or online at www.gourmetgurugrill.com. A GGG grill cover (available from dealers or at www.gourmetgurugril.com) is recommended to extend the life and finish of your GGG grill. GGG Carts, Table and Cabinets Soapy water is recommended to clean the surface of your GGG cart, table or cabinet. Maintaining Your Grill (continued) Replacing The Lid Gaskets The lid gaskets on your grill are designed for long life under normal operating conditions. If the gaskets are showing signs of extensive wear or deterioration you can order a GGG Replacement Gasket Kit from your local GGG dealer or online at www.gourmetgurugrill.com. To replace the gaskets, first make sure the grill is complete cooled down with no live charcoal since you will be using a flammable solvent to remove the old gasket. Never attempt to replace a gasket on a grill that still has hot charcoal in it. Be sure the grill is in a dry, cool well ventilated area. Don a pair of rubber gloves and eye protection. Soak the old gaskets with acetone or isopropyl alcohol to loosen the adhesive. Avoid smoking or use open flames near your work area. Use a putty knife or flat edge scrapper to completely remove the old gasket. Clean the mounting surface with the solvent to make sure any remaining gasket and adhesive residue is gone. Wait at least 30 minutes for the gasket mounting surfaces to dry. Apply 3M high temp double sided tape to the sealing surfaces by peeling the backing off one side. Trim the tape so that the two ends barely contact each other. Remove the backing material from the 3M tape and apply the gasket material by starting about a half of an inch from the tape seam and carefully walking it around the surface while bending it slightly to fit the curvature of the grill. Do not stretch the gasket material. Trim off the excess gasket so that the ends butt against each other tightly to minimize leakage. Close the lid and allow the tape adhesive to cure for about twenty four hours in a cool (not in direct sun) dry environment. Tips For Extending The Life Of Your Grill The grill can handle rain, snow and washing on the exterior and if fact it can be used during rain and snow since the exterior is glazed. Water getting on the interior surfaces which are not glazed can get into pours and micro fissures in the ceramic and freeze during cold weather causing damage. Note: Micro cracking of the exterior glazing and interior is normal and will not affect the life of your grill. Never use water or chemicals to clean the inside of your grill. Your GGG grill is essentially self-cleaning. Store you lump charcoal in a dry place. Left over lump charcoal from you last cook may absorb moisture making it difficult to relight but adding more dry charcoal will overcome that problem. Cooking at lower temperatures, under 350F, for your first few cooks when the grill is new or after replacing the lid gaskets allows gasket adhesive to cure and will drive off absorbed moisture. It is a good idea to use lower cook temperatures for the first cook if your grill is stored outside and unused for an extended length of time to drive off moisture and burn off residue. Always use high grade natural hardwood organic lump charcoal. Inferior products may not produce optimal cook temperatures and may contain undesirable fillers or chemicals. There is no need to adjust the charcoal position during cooking; the grill design is optimized for even burning of the charcoal. Always extinguish remaining charcoal when finished with cooking. Close the lid, the draft door and top vent and the charcoal will extinguish in a short time. Never leave your lid open and unattended and don’t be tempted to use water spray to put out the coals, damage could occur. Periodically check fasteners on the grill bands and hinge and your support system (table cart, table, cabinet) to make sure they are tight. Inspect the surfaces of your support system for damage or deterioration. Especially inspect the area around the circumference of the grill to make sure the grill is centered in the hole in wood tops and not touching the wood sides. Look for signs of deterioration in those areas. Food Preparation Tips If you are using wood chips to enhance the flavor of food cooked on your grill, soak the chips in water first for a more intense flavor. For direct grilling (of steaks, chops, burgers, etc.), have all the coals lit, open the bottom and top vents wide, and preheat the grill to 600 to 700 degrees. Sear the steak on the grate for 2 minutes per side (giving a quarter turn after 1 minute), then lower the lid. Here’s where the genius of the grill comes in: The juices drip on the coals, sending fragrant smoke up to the steak. The lowered lid traps the smoke and seals in the moisture. It also speeds up the cooking time—7 minutes in all should do it. For direct grilling of meat such steaks, pork chops, burgers, etc., load a generous amount of charcoal and light the coals. Leave the draft door and chimney vent fully open and allow the grill to reach 600-700 ⁰. Put your meat of choice on the cooking grid and sear the meat for about two minutes on each side. Then close the lid and allow the meat to finish cooking for 6-8 minutes. The meat will remain moist and the flavor will be locked in. To slow cook,, add a normal amount of charcoal and then add about 2 cups of American hardwood chips. Distribute the chips over the surface of the charcoal and then work them into the voids between the charcoal using the ash removal or similar tool. Light the charcoal in the center, close the lid and adjust the draft door and chimney vent opening to reach 230-250⁰F. The charcoal burn will gradually spread from the center to the rest of the charcoal which will usually give you over 15 hours of grilling time. Add more wood chips if you want a stronger smoke flavor. Slow smoking is accomplished by heating the grill to around 200⁰F, installing the plate setter and setting a large pan of ice on it. Install the cooking grate and set your food on the grate over the ice pan. Approximate cook times for a GGG grill heated to approximately 230⁰F are: Brisket, 5-6#) = 12 to 14 hours Wings = 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 hours Spare or baby back ribs = 3.5- 4.5 hours Shoulder, 5-7 lb. = 9 to 12 hours Enjoy trying some of the recipes on the following pages.
