Step 2: Built-In Mounting Assembly
IMPORTANT: Since the mounting is attached directly to the grill,
you must first partially assemble your grill by attaching the control
panel to the grill head (refer to the appropriate grill section for a s-
sembly instructions).
Then the built-in mounting heat shield must be attached to the bd-
tom of the grill head using four 4-20 x 3" bolts, see fig. 14
"Complete View” illustration.
Do not forget to remove the protective film from all stainlesssteel
parts of your built-in mount.

D. Orifice Engagement (Fig. 22)
At the top end of each valve there is a tiny gas opening known as
the orifice. Gas exits the orifice and enters a venturi where it
mixes with air coming in from the side air shutter. The proper m-
ture of air and gas produces a clean blue flame at the bumer.
lake sure the valve orifice on the control panel aligns with the
bummer ventun tube correctly. The orfice should fit into the venturi
tube "to A" inches as shown below.
WARNING! Always check the alignment of the orifice and the
venturi whenever the grill has been moved. Make surethatthe
orifice fits into the venturi tube 1/47 to 1/2”. Failureto makethis
connection may cause fire and result in serious body injury or
damage to your grill.

INFRARED COOKING TIPS
Ul ji 9 № =
7 E
11.
12.
13.
14.
15.
Infrared gas grills get very hot. Do not leave food unattended on the grill for any length of time.
Estimate cooking times to be 30% to 50% less than a conventional grill.
Always thaw food thoroughly before cooking to achieve better, more predictable resuls.
Always use long handled grill tools for grilling. A grilling mitt may be useful for handlinghot items.
The use of a fork is not recommended for grilling on your new MHF grill. A fork may mar the surface of the cooking gnds. Piercing foods while
cooking will allow the juices to escape, causing the finished product to be drier than may be desired.
To minimize flare-up, trim fat from meats ore remove skin from poultry.
If a flare-up occurs, don't try to control it with water. Water can cause bumer damage. Instead, move the food to another part of the grill, lo wer

Check Local Codes
Consult your local LP dealer or Natural Gas Company for recom-
mended installation procedures and regulations. In the absence
of local codes, Installation must contorm to the National Fuel Ga
Code, ANSI 22231 or CAN/CGAB149.1 Natural Gas Installation
Code or CAN/CGA-B149.2, Propane Installationode.
Natural Gas Models
The grill is designed to operate on Natural Gas at a pressure of 7"
water column (W.C) [1.75 kPa). Check with vour gas utlity for
local gas pressure, Use of your gas grill at pressures other than
approximate 7” WC could affect the performance of your grill.
Natural Gas Hose & Inspection
A single hose of not more than 12 feet long (3.6 meters) is sup-
plied with the cari-styled models,
« Check the hose before each use at places where there could
be extra bending, such as near the gas supply quick-
disconnect coupling and at the grill valve connection. Look for
cracking, cuts or heat damage. Check the entire length for
cracking and excessive wear.
« To replace the hose, turn off gas supply at valve. Release the
quick-disconnect coupling. Using a wrench, disconnect hose
from arill valve connection under the control panel, and clean
threads.
« Replace only with an identicalhose from the manufacturamr
an authorized dealer. Do not use pipe jointcompoundon
the flared fitting at the control panel grill valve connection.
LP Gas Models
The Gnll using a Type | LF cylinder includes the Gaslow Regula-
tor that incorporates an industry exclusive Leak Detectorand

ZI
LP Gas Cylinder Requirements: (The LP-Gas Cylinder is not
supplied with your MAP Grill.)
The LP cylinder should be equipped with an OPD (Overflow
Prevention Device) and a QCC! Or Type 1 (CGAS10)cylinder
connection. This cylinder connection is compatible with the
grill connection. OPD is an internal mechanicaldevicethat
limits the amount of liquid propane and prevents overfilling the
LP cylinder. The correct filing methods for the filling of your
cylinder are by weightor volume, as describedin NFPA SE.
Please make sure your LP dealer fills your LF cylinderby
weight or volume. Ask your LP dealer to read purging and fil -
ing instructions on the LP cylinder before attempting to fill.
All LP cylinders supply systems must include a collar fo pro-
tect the cylinder valve.
The LP cylinder must be a 20-LB size (18 1/4" high, 12%” in
diameter).
The LP cylinder must be constructed and marked in accor-
dance with the specifications for LP-gas cylinders of the U.S.
Department of Transportation (D.O.T.). In Canada, gas cyli n-
ders must meet Canadian LP Gas Tank Specification Code,
National Standard of Canada, CAN/C52-B339, Spheres and
Tubes for the Transportation of Dangerous Goods and Com-
mission.
Be sure your LP cylinder has a D.O.T. certificationand has
been tested within five years. This information is usually
marked on the protective collar.
WARNING: If you use an LP tankexchange service,
be sure that the exchanged tank is equipped with an
OPD. If there is not an LP tank available for exchange
equipped with an OPD, we recommend that you have
your LP tank filled by an authorized LPdea ler.
/N DANGER
Do not use an open flame to check for gas leaks.
Be sure there are no sparks or open flames in the
immediate area while you check for leaks. Sparks
or flames will result in a fire or explosion which
can cause serious bodily injury or death, and
damage to property.

CONNECTING THE LP CYLINDER (Fig. 40)
1. Slip the LP cylinderinto the grill LP Tank Mounting. Positionthe
LP cylinder so that the tank valve receives the regulator wih-
out kinking or creating sham bends in the hose. Secure the
tank to the grill base. For cart base models fasten the mounting
thumbscrew to secure the tank in place. The Optimum Console
base models has the LP Tank Locking Bar to hold the LP Cy-
inder in place (refer to mounting section for detail).
2. The Gaslow Regulator has a largeplasticnut - QCC-1 fitting -

vice). Other LP cylinders may not be compatible with your
grill connection.
LP-GAS CYLINDERFILLINGA HANDLING
A qualified attendant, who fills the cylinder by weight, should fill your
LP cylinder at an authorized LP gas dealer. Improper filing is dan-
gerous.
* When transporting the LP cylinder be sure the plastic dust cover
is in place over the valve. This keeps the valve threads free of
dirt.
e Do not handle the cylinder roughly.
« Do not apply heat directly to the cylinder,
LP-GAS CYLINDERFILLING E HANDLING (contisued)
«Air must be removed from a new LP cylinder before the initial
filling. Your LP dealer is equipped to do this.
« The cylinder supply system must be amanged for vapor wih-
drawal
« Always keep and store cylinders in an upright, secure position.
« Use this grill outdoors in a well-ventilated area. Do not use in a
garage, building, or any other enclosed area.
« Storage of an outdoor cooking gas appliance indoors is permissi-
ble only the cylinder is disconnected and removed from the out-
door cooking gas appliance.
« |f the outdoor cooking appliance is not in use, the gas must be
tumed off at the supply cylinder,
e Cylinders mustbe storedoutdoorsout ofreach ofchildren and
must not be stored in a building, garage or any other enclosed
area.
LP GAS CYLINDERS SAFE HANDLING TIPS
* Liquid propane (LP) gas is a petroleum product as are gasoline
and natural gas, LF gas is a gas at regular temperaturesand
pressures. Under moderate pressure, inside a cylinder, LP gas is
a liquid, As the pressure is released, the liquid readily vaporizes
and becomes gas.
« LP gas has an odor similar to natural gas. Be aware ofthis odor,
« LP gas is heavier than air. Leaking gas collects in low areas and
prevents dispersion.
= To fill, take the LP cylinder to your local authorized LP dealer, or
look up “gas-propane” in the yellow pages to find authorizeddea |-
ETS,
® A new LP cylinder must be purged before the first filling. YourLP
dealer is equipped to do this.
« An LP cylinder must be transported, installed and stored in an
upright position,
« LF cylinders should not be handled roughly.
«= Never store or transport an LP cylinder where the temperatures
can reach 125 degrees. Never leave an LP cylinder in à car on a
hot day.
« Always close the LP cylinder valve before disconnecting the tank
or any other gas fitting.
« Always close the LP Cylinder valve after using grill.
+ Do not use a damaged LP cylinder. Dented, rusty or a damaged
LP cylinder valve may be hazardous and should be replaced with
a new one immediately.
Never fill the LP cylinder beyond 80% full.
Do not store a spare LP gas cylinder under or
grill.

Maintenance
Annual Maintenance |
After a period of nonuse or to keep your grill in top
operating condition, you should perform the following mainte-
nance procedures to keep the grill ready for instant use and for
your safety,
+ [io not obstruct the flow of combustion and ventilation air.
+ (lean inside the grill head. Remove the bumer'venturi assen-
bly and cover the valve orifices with a piece of aluminumfoil to
keep out dirt. Brush inside bottom and sides with a stiff wire
brush to remove built-up grease and debris. Be careful not to
damage the Ignitor or CollectorBox.
Test the Ignitor for a good spark. (See Ignitor Systemin the
General Maintenance section.)
The stainless steel burner may be brushed lightly witha stiff
laundry brush, Any clogged flame holes may be openedusing
a thin wire, Use the supplied ventun cleaning brush or a bottle
brush, pipe cleaner to clean out the venturis. (Ses Flashback
in General Maintenance.)
e Clean the Control Panel, Side Shelf Supports, Lid Handle
Spacers, Lower Cart Frame, Posts with a mild detergent soap
and wam water solution, For the Optimum Console use a mild
detergent soap and water, Windex or a quality stainless steel
cleaner such as MHP*s StainlessSteel Cleaner(Part#SSC)to
clean the column and grill lid facing. Do Not Use cleaning
agents such as bleach, powdered cleansers, steel wool
pads or caustic solutions like oven cleaners becausethey
will damagethe surfaces.
Occasional white oxidation on the exterior of your grill head
and lid may be washed off with mild soap and warm water.
Severs weathering of the grill head and lid can be remediedby
lightly sanding or rubbing with steel wool, Then it can be re-
coated with a high quality heat resistant paint similar to MHP's
BF-1 Paint, available in spray cans from your desler,
Inspect the hose and gas fittings. Remember to leak check
every time you disconnect and reconnect a gas fitting.
Keep the ventilation openings of the LP cylinder enclosure free
and clear from debris.

| General Maintenance |
Flashback
In some areas of the country, spiders and other insects build
nests, lay eggs and spin webs in the grill's venturi tube or valve
orifice, This obstructs the full flow of gas to the bummer. Some gas
backs up resulting ina “Flashback” - a fire in the venturi behind
the control panel which could cause serious bodily injury or dam-
age to your grill,
To remove spider webs and/or other obstructions, you must clean
out the venturis. This should be done routinely if the grill has
sat idle for extended periods. Also, if you live in an area
where spiders are plentiful, you should clean the venturis
often, especially in the fall when there is an increase in egg
sack production.
To clean, be sure the grill is cold. Open lid and remove the cook-
ing grids, the briquettes and the briquette grate.
1. Remove the bumer clip holding the bumer in place. (See
Fig. 42)
2. Lift bummer and venturi assembly out. With suppliedcleaning
brush, a pipe cleaner or a flexible wire, clean out the venturi
tube.
3. Remove hex head orifice with a 3/8" wrench. Clean Orifice
hole and inner part of the valve with a toothpick. Be careful
not to enlarge the onfice hole.

COOKING TECHNIQUES
More Versatile than your kitchen oven...your MHP Gas Grill roasts, sears, broil, spitroast, bakes, steams and smokes. The eating enjoyment of
each cooking technique will result in a distinctive flavor for entertaining friends or a welcomed treat for a family meal,
Direct—For grlling/searing steaks, chops, burgers, frankfurters sausages, fish
fillets, chicken parts or shish-ka-bobs. Your MHP Gas Grill is designed to cook with
the lid closed, except for quick searing or mare of a char flavor, Close lid to finish
grilling, retaining natural juices, moisture and preventing flare-ups.
Indirect (use one side of burner) - For roasts, ribs, ham, whole
chicken, turkey, game or whole fish, Using the indirect heat mahod, tum on one
side of burner, then place food on the cooking arid over the side of bumer that's
not lit.
Indirect (use of water pan) - An aluminum foil pan is centeredon the
briquettes to moderate the temperature and to add moisture and flavor. Fill the pan
with water or other ingredients, (add to water, wine, apple juice, orange juice, herbs,
spices, etc). The cooking juices from the food drops into the waterpan creatinga
savory water vapor from which the foods absorbs flavor and moisture,
Pan Roasting—For large cuts ofmeat, pot roast, turkey, wholechickens,
duckling, aluminum foil drip pan or shallow metal bakingroasting pan on top of
cooking grid. For extra flavor, add your favoritevegetablesor some wine or fruit
juice or garlic, onions to the drip pan, Use liquid to baste or gravy.
Smoke (addition of wood chips or chunks) - Ordinary meat,
whole fish, poultry and game becomes a taste sensation when smoked, Ushg the
water pan technique and your favorite wood soaked in water for several hours or
ovemight. Place chips in the convenient MHP reusable smoke box or wrap in als-
minum fall, poke a couple of small holes in the foil pack. Place hoes side up directly
on briquettes along side of water pan,
Rotisserie—Foultry, lamb, besf and pork tastes more of themselveswhen
spit-roasted. Meat is rotated over the heat keeping it constantly bathed in its own
juices, insuring that all sides become done at one time, A drip pan can be used
to collect the drippings for basting or gravy.

GETTING TO KNOW YOUR MHP GAS GRILL
Some Questions and Answers.
There is really no mystery to gas grill cooking.
The best of two worlds are combined in the use of a gas gnll, the flavor of charcoal cooking and the convenience and heal control of your kitchen
oven.
Let's look at some of the most commonly asked questions about gas grill cooking:
Can | Get That Charcoal Flavor?
The fact 1s thal charcoal does not flavor your outdoor meal, but 1s only a heal source. The MHP Gas Goll utilizes a special porcelain briquette above
the patented bumer thal heals up fast and spreads the heat evenly. The delightful backyard laste thal comes with barbecue cooking ts caused by
meal dnppings falling on the heal source where they are vaponzed to nse and add outdoor flavor to the food.
What control Settings Should | Use?
The greatest cause of gas grill cooking lailures 15 excess heat. Understanding the three basic heat setting along with expenence, you will find the
precise heat you need will become easier and easier to achieve.
HIGH4s used pnmanly for preheating and cleaning. It may also be used for quick searmg of meats, such as sleaks and chops.
MEDIUM-F or broiling or quick cooking foods. Also use MEDIUM for seanng foods thal have been cooked al LOW, for more of a smoke Памог,
LOW-Most foods should be cooked at LOW. Even thick steaks, which have been seared on both sides at HIGH, will finish wih better texture and
more juices at LOW. All roasts, poultry, rotissene and smoke cooking should be at LOW.
Do | Cook With The Lid Open Or Closed?
Like your kitchen oven, the MHP Gas Gnll 1s designed to cook with the hd closed, except for quick seanng. Cooking with the Id closed helps food
retain natural juices, moisture, enhances flavor and keeps annoying flare-us to à minimum. Also, heat 1s reflected from the bid, and meal cooks not
only from below, but, evenly on all sides from circulating hot air, (similar to convecti on oven) for faster, more fuel efficient cooking
Can | cook More Than One Thing At A Time?
You can prepare entire meals in the MHP Gas Gnll...and you'll love it even more. Baked potatoes, com-on-the-cob, stuffed tomatoes, peppers,
squash, vegetables, garlic bread, baked apples, pies...grill them on the warming rack or alongside the meat for complete menus.
When And How Do | Use A Meat Thermometer?
Use a oven-sale meal thermometer when cooking large pieces of meal, poultry and game to determine if cooked ade quately. The thermometer
should be inserted into the thickest part of the meat. For accurate temperature reading, the up of the thermometer should not touch fat layers, bone
or gnstle, or if using the rotissene, the spit rod.
What Utensils Should | Use?
Always use long handle forks, spatulas or longs, designed especially for outdoor cooking when testing or tuming food in your grill. Keep hot pads or
mitt handy for removing food from cooking grid. For juicer more flavorful meats, use tongs when handling and turning. Piercing the meat with a fork
allows juices lo escape.
Can | Use Aluminum Foil?
Aluminum foil 1s probably the most convenient accessory of all. Foil can be used to cook food on orin. ltalso serves as a drip pan and heat dellec-
tor. Vegetables cook best when wrapped in foil. Foil holds in natural hquids, and foods cook moet and tender. Delicate foods such as lish fillets and
sealood may be cooked on fol placed directy on the cooking grid. When spit- cooking foods of uneven shape, smaller parts that may cook too Last,
may be wrapped in foil. Foil 15 also great to use in cleaning the gril. For stubborn grease ore sauce build-up that 1s not removed dunng your normal
cleaning process. Simply place a sheet of aluminum foi covering the Flavor Master bnquettes. With the hd open, tm the control to HIGH and ignite,
close ld. Alter about 70 minutes or so the residue will be reduced lo a white powder, which is easily brushed or wiped off after the gnll has cooled.
When Should | Use Seasoning and Sauces?
Salt, which tends Lo dry out foods, 1s best added alter cooking. Sauces and mannades add a special laste treal when gnlled. Mannades are popular
because hey tum less expensive cuts ol meat into tasty entrees. Large items such as roasts should be mannaled al kast 8 hours or overmight. Fish,
poultry and nbs may be mannated successfully in an hour or two. Food in the mannade should be tumed occasionally and kept co ol under refrigera-
tion. Sugar-based glazes and sauces will burn faster and should be brushed on dunng final stages of cooking or used as a lable sauce.
Can | Cook Frozen Food?
For best results, thaw all meal in the relngerator. This allows for juicier, more Havordful meats. However, very good results can be obtained by cooking
your steaks while stll frozen. Just remember to allow more cooking time. The microwave oven provides an alternative for thawing your meat, al-
though it 1s our least recommended method. Fish and vegetables can be successfully grilled frozen.
How Economical Is A Gas Grill?
You will save on your utility bill using a gas gnll instead of conventional oven or charcoal cooking. Less energy for air-condition, fewer dishes lo wash
and no charcoal or starter fluid to buy. Charcoal grilling costs 30 times more than natural gas and 10 times more than propane ( as lo cook an aver-
age meal,
Handling Food Safely
Always thaw your frozen products in the refrigerator, Never thaw at room temperature, Do not use the same cutting board or platter for raw meats
and cooked meats. Wash hands, utensils, cutting boards and counters that contact raw food. Cook meats to the proper degree of doneness; Never
serve ground meats rare or raw. Do not allow cooked meats to stand at room temperature, Always refrigerate leftovers immediately,
