INTRODUCTION
Thank you for selecting the Kuuma Products barbecue. Your unit was carefully
inspected and tested at our factory. Please take the time to read this manual carefully;
many of its instructions are essential to the safe operation of your new barbecue.
Because of the continuing refinement of our product designs, your barbecue may
possess features not discussed in the manual. We have tried to supply all the
information you might need, so please take time to read this manual before installing
and using your barbecue. Kuuma Products advises strongly against unauthorized
modification of this product, but we do encourage you to correct problems which may
arise by under-taking the simple repairs and maintenance described in this manual.
Barbecue mounting options are not included. To satisfy your specific mounting application
for your Kuuma Products barbecue, the mount is sold separately. Please read the “Installation
Instructions” section entitled “Mounting” for more details.
SAFETY
Read all Instructions before operating.









For outdoor use only.
Never operate this grill unattended. Keep children and pets away at all times.
Grill should be operated on a flat, level, non-combustible surface.
Use high pressure propane only.
Grill is not intended for commercial use.
Always light BBQ with lid open.
Do not leave hot BBQ unattended.
Always turn off Propane after use.
Any modification of the barbecue may be dangerous.
Caution: The BBQ lid is hot – Do not touch when in use. Open lid with handle only.
DANGER



Do not operate this grill within 10’ (3m) of any other gas cylinder.
Do not operate this grill within 25’ (7.5m) of any flammable liquids.
If a fire should occur, keep away from the grill and immediately contact the fire
department. Do not attempt to extinguish an oil or grease fire with water.



Cooking area should be kept clear and free from combustible materials. Do not
obstruct flow of combustion and ventilation air.
NEVER light the grill with the lid closed. Build up of gases is dangerous and can
cause an explosion.
NEVER use your grill in an enclosed space. NEVER use it as a heater. The
burning of propane can make carbon monoxide, a colorless, odorless gas that can
cause death.
Propane is highly volatile and even a 1lb. bottle contains enough fuel to cause a
serious fire or explosion. To reduce the chances of a gas leak or explosion, always
follow these precautions when using propane.





The LP gas bottle used with this grill must be constructed and marked in
accordance with the specifications for LP gas cylinder of the U.S> Department of
Transportation (DOT) CFR 49 or the national standard of Canada, CAN/CSAB339.
Do not attempt to refill any disposable bottles. Please recycle appropriately.
The bottle must be installed, transported and stored in an upright position and
should not be dropped or handled roughly.
When the grill is to be stored indoors, the bottle must be disconnected from the
grill.
Always attach and detach the bottle in a well ventilated area. Be sure not to
loosen the regulator / grill connection during the connection of the bottle.
Warning
Natural Hazards – Insects and spiders
A clogged burner tube can lead to a fire beneath the appliance. During shipment or
storage, it is possible that small insects and spider could find their way into the burner
tube and make nests or webs. This could block the flow of gas though the burner
causing a smoky, yellowish flame, or even prevent the burner from lighting. It could
even cause the gas to burn outside the burner tube, which could seriously damage the
grill. If this occurs, turn the gas flow off and wait for the grill to cool. Once cool,
remove the burner tube and clean along with the brass orifice. This cleaning should
be done periodically.
INSTALLATION
Unpacking & Installation
1. Remove all interior packing before use.
2. Verify the burner is positioned with the burner slots vertical. (propane models)
3. Position the Flavor Plate over top of the burner with the round holes facing the
front. (see item 3 in Diagram (1))
4. Ensure the back tabs on the Cooking Grill are in the holes on the back of the upper
rail. The front of the grill should sit on the front top ledge.
Table top use – The Stow & Go and Profile BBQs come with attached fold down
legs.
To use on a table top, unfold the (4) legs located on each corner of the BBQ.

mount. DO NOT LEAVE A HYBRID OR ELECTRIC MODELS MOUNTED
WHERE IT CAN BE EXPOSED TO WATER / MOISTURE / RAIN.
OPERATION
Propane Gas Hook-up
1. This BBQ is set-up for High Pressure Propane. Low pressure valves are available
from Kuuma to replace the standard high pressure regulator.
2. When using standard 1 Lb disposable propane canisters, ensure the regulator is in
the off position prior to fastening the canister. Take caution not to cross thread.
3. When using a propane supply already on board, the BBQ can be hooked up prior
to the regulator, as the barbecue has its own regulator valve assembly, direct from
the box. If you wish to hook up on the low pressure side of your system’s
regulator, you need to get a low pressure control valve from Kuuma Products. DO
NOT DOUBLE REGULATE.
4. Carefully follow instructions in this manual for proper assembly and leak testing.
Do not use grill until leak testing is complete. Check for leaks prior to use.
How to check for leaks:
Use a clean paint brush and a 50/50 solution of mild soap and water. DO
NOT USE HOUSEHOLD CLEANING AGENTS.
1. Be sure valve on regulator is in OFF position
2. Brush soapy solution onto the connection between the bottle and the
regulator.
If growing bubbles appear, there is a leak. Retighten connection and repeat
steps 1 & 2.
If you cannot stop the leak, remove the bottle from the regulator and check for
damaged threads, dirt and debris on the regulator and one the bottle
If threads are damaged on either, DO NOT USE until replaced.
5. Before Lighting – DO NOT use the grill if the odor of gas is present. The
pressure regulator supplied with the grill must be used – never substitute.
6. The disposable propane canister must not be more than 45 degrees off vertical
7. Store and use the barbecue in a well ventilated area. Do not store with Propane
bottle attached.
8. Do not store fuel tanks in direct sunlight, indoors, or in temperatures over 120 F.
9. Shut off connections at tank supply when barbecue is not in use.
Lighting
Now that your barbecue has been connected to a propane supply you are ready to light
it.
1. Never operate your Barbecue indoors. Use only in a well ventilated area.
2. Make sure the regulator is in the off position.
3. Open lid. Always make sure your face and body are as far away from the grill as
possible.
4. Light the BBQ with a Butane lighter using the lighting holes located either on the
right hand side of the heat plate or on the left side of the BBQ. Insert match or
lighter. Keep flame next to burner while following step 5.
5. Push and turn the regulator counter-clockwise to the high setting.
6. Visually confirm burner is lit by looking through the front of the BBQ.
7. Adjust heat setting.
8. To shut off, turn knob clockwise to the Lock-Off position.
Note: If burner does not light after (10) seconds, turn valve to off position and wait
(5) minutes before repeating.
Cooking
1. Do not overheat BBQ. DO NOT operate the grill without food on the cooking
surface. Uncooked food absorbs heat. Preheating may damage the grill.
2. Do not cook with the lid closed.
3. Operate the grill between HI and Low only. Operating the grill below the LO
setting can result in a dangerous flame out, causing unburnt gas to collect. If this
happens, wait 5 minutes for gas to dissipate before attempting to relight.
Lock the lid securely with the latches when the BBQ is not in use.
Adjustments
There is an air adjustment that can be made on the BBQ to optimize performance
(Propane Models)
There are two air adjustment locations on the Stow N’ Go BBQ.
The external air baffle is located on the regulator housing on the right side of the
BBQ. When cooking in windy conditions, slide the baffle forward to reduce the cross
wind effect on the orifice.
There is a primary air shutter located on the far end of the burner in the regulator
housing. (Shown below) This air shutter adjusts the flame quality of the burner.
Adjustment Screw
3mm to
4.5mm
The burner flame should be mostly blue with yellow tips. If the flame is completely
blue with a wild flame, the opening at air shutter needs to be reduced. (Do not
completely close this opening) If the flame is yellow, the opening needs to be made
larger.
Regulator
The regulator pressure may be set too low and you may have to reset it. Remove the
silver label in the center of the regulator (where it says “Push to Turn”). By turning
the Phillips head or 3/32 hex screw found below this label, you can increase or
decrease the gas flow. Clockwise increases the gas flow, and counterclockwise
decreases the gas flow.
Adjustment screw
CAUTION: You can increase the gas flow too much and the gas will not shut off.
Check this carefully after each adjustment.
Universal BBQ Regulator
(For use with all Kuuma Products High Pressure Barbecues)
1. Disconnect Propane fuel source.
2. Remove the burner tube if your BBQ has a tube style burner.
3. Remove existing regulator by holding the orifice (located in the wind screen housing on
the right hand side of the BBQ) with a combination wrench (11/16” or 17mm hex) and
unscrewing the regulator.
4. Clean the orifice, and make sure there is no carbon build up blocking the jet. (do not
stick any metal objects inside the hole)
5. Screw on the new Regulator (clockwise) onto the orifice. Regulator should be tight but
still able to be rotate slightly. Re-install the burner tube.
6. Attach the Propane source and check for leaks. Light the BBQ and turn the Regulator to
the high setting. If the flame is not sufficient, the regulator pressure may be set too low
and you may have to reset it. Remove the silver label in the center of the regulator
(where it says “Push to turn”). By turning the Phillips head or 3/32 hex screw found
below this label, you can increase or decrease the gas flow. Clockwise increases the gas
flow, and counterclockwise decreases the gas flow. CAUTION: You can increase the gas
flow too much and the gas will not shut off.
CLEANING & MAINTENANCE
Cleaning
Stainless Steel exposed to high heat will change color over time. Discoloration of
components does not affect the operation or performance of the BBQ. The exterior of
the BBQ can be cleaned with soapy water. We recommend covering the grill between
uses. Clean the grease from the Grease Tray on a regular basis. Lining this tray with
tin foil is a great idea! Clean the heat plate on a regular basis. Build up of grease and
food particles can cause flare-ups or poor heat disbursement.
DO NOT LEAVE A HYBRID AND ELECTRIC MODELS MOUNTED
WHERE IT CAN BE EXPOSED TO WATER / MOISTURE / RAIN. THIS
WILL DAMAGE THE UNIT.
Maintenance
The following procedure will allow for the removal of the Burner Tube and Regulator
for cleaning or replacement.
Burner
The burner can be removed from the Barbecue by removing the machine screw
connecting the burner to the left side of the barbecue and sliding it out.
Regulator
1. Remove the barbecue’s burner, described above.
2. The orifice is located at the entrance to the burner. It is a brass fitting with a fine
hole that controls the maximum amount of gas to enter the burner.
3. Remove the orifice from the barbecue using an 11/16” (17mm) wrench.
4. Do not lose the spring washer that goes between the orifice and the regulator
housing. Observe the orientation of this washer for proper re-installation.
