Safe Care and Maintenance
Always keep your grill clean:
• When you have finished cooking turn the grill burners to high for up to 10
minutes to burn off any excess grease. Make sure your grease pan is clean to
avoid a grease fire.
• Let the grill cool before using a grill cover.
• Empty and clean grease pan.
• Clean the grill thoroughly at least twice annually.
• Check main opening, throat and venturi to each burner regularly for insect
nests and clean out thoroughly.
• Do not use caustic based cleaning agents on the grill.
• Check all gas hoses and line connections for damage, cuts or cracks before
use.
• Do not make any modifications to the grill. Any modification to the grill may
be dangerous and may void the warranty.
• Do not dismantle or adjust control valves or regulator.
If There Is a Fire:
• Most fires are caused by a buildup of grease or by an improper gas
connection.
• Ensure all people and pets are kept as far away as possible.
• If possible, turn the gas off at the cylinder or the on/off valve.
• Use a fire extinguisher if possible. If water is the only fire retardant available,
thoroughly soak the area around the grill. Spray the water lightly over the
frame and cooking surfaces to cool the grill to a temperature below the
ignition temperature.
Grilling in Windy Conditions
Using your grill in windy conditions may disrupt the front-to-back air flow. High
winds may cause hot gases from exiting the rear of the grill, and the control
panel and knobs may become extremely hot.
• On breezy days, do not to leave the front hood down for more than 15
minutes when the burners are on high. (Never leave the grill unattended
when in operation)
• If you suspect the grill is overheating, please use an oven mitt to open the
front hood. Then adjust the burner control knob to a lower setting.
• Position the grill so prevailing winds will not blow into the rear of the grill.
ADVISORY: Any damage caused from use in windy conditions, such as melted
knobs or igniter wire, or control panel discoloration from heat buildup, is
excluded from warranty coverage.

until the merchandise is unpacked you should notify your dealer within 15
days of the delivery date.
IMPORTANT
For instructions on attaching your grill head to the cart, please refer to the installation
instructions included with your cart.
WARNING
• Never install this product into a combustible enclosure without an insulated jacket. Doing
so could result in fire, property damage and personal injury.
• Never locate the grill under a roof or overhang, in a building, garage, shed or other such
enclosed area.
• Never locate the grill under combustible construction.
• Installation must conform with local codes or, in the absence of local codes ,with either
the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54, Natural Gas and propane Installation
Code, CSA B149.1, or Propane Storage and Handling Code, B149.2
Important Notes:
Selecting a Grill Location
Consider important factors such as exposure to the wind and foot-traffic
patterns.
If you have a freestanding grill, position it so the prevailing wind blows toward
the front control panel (at your back when grilling), supporting the proper
front-to-rear airflow.
Built-in grills located in areas with prevailing winds should be protected by a
wind barrier.
Winds hitting the back of the grill directly may cause problems, as well as
wind blowing along the hood gap.

Built-in Installations
Clearances from Combustible Construction
A minimum of 18” from the sides and rear of the grill must be maintained
to adjacent vertical combustible construction, above the counter top
level. You should take into account that there is a large volume of heat,
and smoke that will exhaust from the rear of the grill. This may discolor or
damage unprotected areas (Figure 02). Do not install under unprotected
combustible construction without using a fire safe ventilation system. A
minimum clearance of 18” must also be maintained under the counter top to
combustible construction. (Figure 01 and Figure 02)

Clearances from Non-Combustible Construction
A minimum of 6” clearance from the back of the grill to non-combustible
construction is required for the purpose of allowing the lid to open fully
(Figure 04). It is desirable to allow at least 6” rear and side clearance to
noncombustible construction above the cooking surface for counter space.
If you’ll be using the rotisserie option, this space is essential for motor and
skewer clearance. The grill can be placed directly adjacent to noncombustible
construction below the cooking surface. (Figure 03 and Figure 04)

GAS CONNECTIONS
Check Gas Type
Before proceeding, you need to verify the type of gas supply to be used. It
will either be Natural Gas (NAT) or Liquid Propane (LP)., Please make sure
the marking on the appliance rating plate is consistent with the type of gas
supply you are intending to use.
The grill is factory set to use either liquid propane (LP) or natural gas (NAT). It
is critical that the gas you use matches what the grill was set up for. You can
verify that by checking the rating plate.
The rating plate is attached to the right hand side of grill bottom.

Code(ANSI Z223.1/NEPA 54 in the U.S and CGA-B 149.1/.2 in Canada).
10
Liquid Propane (LP) GAS
Grills set up for LP gas come equipped with an LP hose/regulator assembly for
connection to a standard 20 lb. LP cylinder. (Type 1). All fittings necessary to
attach the assembly to the grill are included with your grill.
Type 1 Cylinder
CAUTION!
Before connecting LP cylinder to regulator, check that all grill burners and rotisserie valves
are in the “OFF” position and open grill lid.
WARNING
• DO not change the regulator/hose assembly or use any other assembly than the one
supplied with your grill.
• DO not store a spare LP-gas cylinder under or near this appliance.
• Never fill the cylinder beyond 80 percent full.
• If the information above is not followed exactly, a fire causing death or serious injury may occur.
11
LP Cylinder Requirements
• The LP cylinder must be constructed and marked in accordance with the
specifications for LP gas cylinders of the U.S Department of Transportation (DOT).
• Cylinders must be secured using the provided cylinder retention system to
avoid accidental movement.
• When exchanging your cylinder for a refill, exchange only for a Type 1 20lb
cylinder with an over-fill protection device.
• Never use a cylinder with a damaged valve.
• A dented or rusty LP cylinder may be hazardous and must not be used. If in
doubt, have it checked by your LP supplier.
• Always check for leaks after every LP cylinder change.
• Always shut off the LP-gas supply at the cylinder when the grill is not in use.
• Cylinders must be stored outdoors in a well-ventilated area out of the reach of
children. If your grill is stored indoors, the LP cylinder must be stored outside
Figure 8
Gas Line Purging
• You should purge the gas line of air before attempting to light the grill.
• Make sure all grill controls are in the “OFF” position.
• Slowly turn on the main gas supply.
• Hold the knob on for about 5-20 seconds to allow the air in the system to
purge and the burners to light.
• Wait at least 5 minutes after shutting off the control before attempting to
light the burners.
12
Natural Gas
Natural gas installation should only be carried out by a qualified technician.
Fit the natural gas regulator that was supplied with your grill directly to the
grill inlet located on the right side of the grill. You can do this using either
hard plumbing or a flexible hose connected to a bayonet point.
Refer to local installation code for pipe sizing details. Secure all joints spanner
tight but do not over- tighten.
Test gas pressure by removing the last burner from the left hand side of the grill
and attaching a hose and pressure gauge to the end of the gas valve. Turn on 2
burners and check the pressure. Inlet pressure should be 4.0” WC or 1.00 kPa.
For mobile trolley installations that use flexible hosing to connect to natural
gas, a chain or similar restraining device must be fitted to prevent strain on
the gas supply line. One end of the chain should attach to the grill; the other
end should attach to a fixed structural point close to where the hose connects
to the gas piping. The chain must be at least 30% shorter than the gas supply
line. In this way, if the grill is accidentally moved, the chain stops the grill from
stretching the hose.
The grill must be isolated from the gas supply piping system by closing its
manual shut off valve during any pressure testing of the gas supply piping
system.

PRE-USE CHECKLIST
Leak Testing Procedure
DANGER
To prevent fire or explosion hazard, DO NOT smoke or allow any potential source of ignition
(sparks, electrical arcing, etc) in the area while performing a leak test. Leak test should be
conducted outdoors only. Never conduct a leak test using a fire or flame.
Perform a leak test at least once each year whether the gas supply cylinder has been
disconnected or not. In addition, anytime the gas cylinder is connected to the regulator or
any part of the gas system is disconnected or replaced, conduct a leak test. Use only a leak
testing solution as specified below.
Leak Testing Procedure
1.Prepare a leak testing solution of sudsy water by mixing a solution of half
liquid soap and half water in a spray bottle.
2.Check and make sure all the control knobs are in the “OFF” position.
3.Turn cylinder valve knob counter clockwise one turn to open.
4.Apply leak-testing solution by spraying on joints of the gas delivery system.
5.Blowing bubbles in the soap solution indicates that a leak is present.
6.Stop a leak by tightening the loose joint or by replacing the faulty part with
a replacement part recommended by the manufacturer. Do not attempt to
repair the cylinder valve if it becomes damaged. The cylinder must
be replaced.
7.If you are unable to stop a leak, shut off the gas supply at the cylinder
valve. Remove the cylinder from the grill. Call an authorized gas appliance
service technician or LP gas dealer. Do not use the appliance until the leak
is corrected.
8.Push in and turn any control knob to release pressure in the hose and
manifold.
9.Turn off the control knob.

Low Heat Burner Adjustment
To adjust the burner low setting:
• Make sure the grill is cool.
• Remove grates and flame tamers so that
you can see the flames while adjusting
the burners.
• Light the burner and set it to “LOW”
• Pull off the control knob.
• While holding the valve shaft with pliers,
insert a small screwdriver into the shaft
and, while watching the flame, adjust it
to a minimum stable setting. (Figure 12)
Figure 12
Burner Flame Air Flow Adjustment
The amount of air that enters a burner is controlled by the air shutter.
Each grill burner is tested and adjusted at
the factory prior to shipment. However,
fluctuations in gas pressure, gas conversion
and even in the quality of the gas itself may
make it necessary to adjust the burner.
The flames of the main burners should be
visually checked. Flames should be blue
and stable with slight yellow tips. The darkblue should be about 3/8 inch high with a
total flame height of about 1/2 inches
Figure 13
The flames should burn quietly (no “torch” sounds) and they should not “lift”
up from the burner.
If your flames do not match the above description you need to make sure
that the air shutter and burner ports are free and clear of dirt, debris or
spider webs. If they are clear and the flame still does not match the desired
description above, then you will need to adjust the air shutter.
The air shutter is locked in place by a screw which must be loosened before
adjusting. Once adjusted retighten the screw.
16
Adjustment Instructions
Note: The air shutter adjustment must be done by a certified technician.
• Remove the grate and flame tamer.
• Lift out the burner, loosen the set screw and then put the burner back in
place and light it.
• If the flame is excessively yellow, indicating insufficient air, carefully turn
the air shutter clockwise to allow more air to the burner.
• If the flame is noisy (sounds like a torch) and tends to lift away from the
burner, indicating too much air, turn the air shutter counter-clockwise
(Figure 13).
• After the burner cools down, remove it, tighten the air shutter set screw
and reinstall the burner, flame tamers and grates.
• Finally check all the burners for proper operation. Make sure the control
knobs turn freely and completely through their full range.

18
Before You Light the Grill
Perform the Following Checks
• Make sure all gas connections are tight and leak tested and that you do not
smell gas. If so, shut everything off and have a qualified technician check
for leaks.
• Ensure that the cooking surfaces are clean and hygienic.
• Check that the control knobs are in the “OFF” position. Do not attempt to
light the burners if the smell of gas is present.
• Check that the gas supply is turned on.
• Ensure that the hood of the grill and the lid of the side burner are in the up
position. A build up of gas inside the hood is dangerous.
• Make sure the drip tray is in place.
• Make sure the wind is not blowing too strongly or blowing directly on the
back of grill.
WARNING
NEVER attempt to light a burner if you smell gas.
• Always keep the lid open (side-burner lids must be completely removed) when lighting
your grill.
• Releasing fuel into a closed grill before lighting will increase the risk of explosion,
property damage, personal injury or death.
• Keep your face and body as far from the grill as possible when lighting. Any time a burner
doesn’t light within 5 seconds, turn off the control, wait 5 minutes for gas to dissipate,
and repeat the lighting procedure.
Lighting the Grill
Electric Ignition:
• Read instruction before lighting.
• Open lid while lighting burners.
• Make sure all valves are in “OFF” positions.
• Turn gas tank valve on after confirming knobs are in “OFF “ position.
For the main burner, sear burner and rotisserie burner:
• Push knob in and observing igniter glowing. Turn knob slowly to “HI”
position. Continue to hold knob 5 seconds and burner should be lighted.
19
For the Rotisserie Burner:
The rotisserie burner features a thermocouple sensor with a safety valve that
automatically shuts off the flow of gas if the burner goes out. After ignition
CONTINUE HOLDING THE CONTROL KNOB IN for 30 to 60 seconds. During this
time, the thermocouple will heat up and the safety valve will remain open.
If you release the control knob before the thermocouple has heated up, the
safety valve will shut off the flow of gas to the rotisserie burner, and you will
have to relight the burner.
• If you do not see the igniter glowing, do not attempt to light burner. You
must check the ignition system until you see the igniter glowing.
• If the burner does not light in 5 seconds, wait 5 minutes then retry.
Manual Lighting
If a burner doesn’t light after several attempts, it can be match lit using a long
match. First, make sure you’ve returned all of the control knobs to the “OFF”
position and have allowed 5 minutes for any accumulated gas to dissipate
before attempting to match light a burner.
Manual Lighting the Flash Tube
Your grill features individual manual lighting tubes for all main burners.
Place a lit long lit match in front of the flash tube for the burner you wish to
light.
Push and turn the corresponding burner control knob to “HI”. If the burner
doesn’t light within 5 seconds turn the knob off and wait 5 minutes before
attempting to light it again. Once lit, gas will stop flowing through the flash
tube.

BASIC GRILLING
Preheating
Preheating your grill is extremely important and provides more consistent
cooking results.
Preheat your grill by igniting all the main burners including the sear burner
and setting them to High. Then close the hood of the grill and allow the grill
to heat up for 10 to 15 minutes. Once you have reached the desired preheat
temperature you can turn off the burners that you don’t intend to use and
allow the grill to reach equilibrium at the desired grilling temperature.
Types of Cooking
There are two ways to grill: Direct Grilling and Indirect Grilling.
Direct Grilling
This is cooking directly over the heat source. There is one basic variation
to direct grilling. You can either leave the lid up or keep it down and that
determines whether the food is grilled or baked. By closing the lid you hold
the heat in and allow the entire exterior of the food to be cooked. If you cook
with the lid open the rising heat will only cook the bottom of the food. You
still have to turn your food over occasionally to get even cooking with either
method. With the lid down, you reduce the cooking time.
The food you cook with direct heat is the traditional grilling method for
steaks, burgers, fish, etc. Anything that is less than 2 inches thick should be
cooked by direct grilling. These foods generally cook quickly and benefit
from a hot grill. Generally you want to grill with the hood down. The only
reasons to grill with the lid up is for items that need a lot of basting, or cook
so quickly that having the lid down increases the risk of over cooking.
21
Indirect Grilling
Any large food item or cut of meat more than about 2 inches thick should be
grilled indirectly. Indirect grilling requires that the heat source be opposite
the intended cooking area. To accomplish this, simply turn the burners
“ON” on only one half of the grill. Place the food on the unheated side and
close the lid, so radiant heat will cook the food. Since the food is not being
exposed to direct heat it will cook more evenly and slowly.
22
Warming Rack
The warming rack allows you to keep cooked food warm and away from the
intense heat. If the warming rack is unneeded it can be moved to the “UP”
position.
Advisory: The warming rack should be removed when using the rotisserie
burner to prevent the rack from warping due to overheating.
Warming Rack (Down Position)
Warming Rack (Up Position)
23
Installing the Rotisserie Motor
The motor mounting bracket has been installed on the roasting hood before
shipping. Slide the motor onto the bracket.
24
Using the Rotisserie
The rotisserie is an excellent way to large cuts of meat slowly and evenly.
The rotisserie shaft must pierce the food as close to the middle as possible.
If the weight of the food is unbalanced, it will cause excessive stress on the
rotisserie motor. Before cooking, test the rotisserie by hand before connecting
it to the motor to check the balance and adjust as necessary.
IMPORTANT: When connecting your rotisserie motor, first connect the motor
to the grill and then plug the grill into the outlet.
The Rotisserie Burner
To light the rotisserie infrared burner, first mount the skewered food item on
the grill then follow the rotisserie lighting procedure.
The rotisserie burner should reach cooking temperature and glow evenly
across in approximately 5 minutes.
Note: The grill thermometer should not be used for rotisserie cooking. It is not
designed to read direct infrared heat.
If the burner will not stay lit when you release the control knob, relight it and
hold the control knob in for at least 60 seconds to allow the thermocouple to
heat up.
IMPORTANT: If, after holding the control knob in for at least 60 seconds, the
burner still will not stay lit when releasing the control knob, call for service.
Lighting the Rotisserie Burner:
• The rotisserie burner features a thermocouple sensor with a safety valve
that automatically shuts off the flow of gas if the burner goes out. After
ignition, CONTINUE HOLDING THE CONTROL KNOB IN for 30 to 60 seconds.
During this time, the thermocouple will heat up and the safety valve will
remain open. If you release the control knob before the thermocouple has
heated up, the safety valve will shut off the flow of gas to the rotisserie
burner and you will have to relight the burner.
25
Using the Sear Burner
Your GasJoe Ultra 30” and 42” grills come with a sear or infrared burner.
Infrared burners work by focusing the gas flame through a ceramic element
filled with tiny holes. These holes focus the flame on the surface of the
element, creating an intense heat much higher than a standard burner. It
allows you to sear the outside of your food while leaving the inside rare, if
desired.
Preheating the Sear Burner
Always preheat the entire grill before
cooking to achieve consistent results.
If the grill is already hot from cooking you
should still preheat the sear burner for 2-3
minutes or until it glows red.
Never place food over a sear burner before it
is fully preheated. Food particles and grease
drippings on a cold sear burner can clog the
tiny ports and damage the burner.
You should also minimize water spills on the
sear burner and do not use water to control
flare-ups. Take special care to minimize
dropping any liquids on the sear burner while cleaning the cooking grids.
26
How to Sear
Searing locks in the flavor and juices of food while allowing the outer surface
to absorb smoke and aromas by the vaporized drippings of the food.
The tube burners in your grill are not capable of producing searing heat, the
infrared burner is specifically designed for this purpose.
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
The grill cooking grids are heavy duty. Dropping them onto the sear
burner will damage the burner. Such damage is not covered by the
product warranty and will cause fire, burns or other personal injury.
Sear Burner Cleaning
Heat the grill on “HIGH” with the hood open for 5 minutes after each use to
burn away any food particles or drippings.
Any ash accumulation on the burner surface can be removed with a light
brush or vacuum…ALLOW THE BURNER TO COOL COMPLETELY.
To prevent damage to the ceramic element, DO NOT remove the protective
screen during cleaning.
To Turn Off the Burner
When you’ve finished cooking, leave the burner controls on high for a
maximum of 5 minutes to burn off excess grease from the flame tamer, the
burners and other surfaces.
To turn the grill off, it is best to turn off the
cylinder first, and allow all the gas left in the
hose to burn off. This will only take a couple of
seconds. Then turn off all burner controls.
You can leave the cylinder connected to your
grill while it’s not in use.
Failure to follow these shutdown procedures correctly can be hazardous.
27
Controlling the Flames
All burner control knobs have three basic positions: “OFF”, “LOW” and “HIGH”.
You can achieve any flame height between low and high by rotating the
control knob between these positions.
28
CLEANING & MAINTENANCE
Your new grill must be kept clean and properly maintained to maximize its
performance and longevity.
Clean the internal parts of the grill regularly as determined by the amount of
use and food cooked. The entire grill should be cleaned at least twice a year.
To ensure safe and proper use, follow these directions carefully:
Cleaning the Cooking Grates
The easiest way to clean the cooking grates is to scrub them immediately
after cooking with the burners off. Wear a grill mitt to protect your hand from
the heat and steam. We recommend using a brass bristled grill brush that is
dipped in water. Dip the brush frequently to increase the amount of steam,
which makes the cleaning process easier by softening any food particles. The
food particles will fall onto the flame tamer and burn or fall into the drip tray.
Cleaning the Warming Rack
The warming rack can be cleaned using the same procedure as “Cleaning the
Cooking Grates”.
Cleaning the Drip Tray
The drip tray will collect grease from the main grill area. The tray should be
cleaned after every use to avoid the possibility of a grease fire. Be sure to
allow the drip tray to cool prior to cleaning. You may clean it with a solution of
warm soapy water. Rinse thoroughly to avoid staining.
29
Cleaning the Burners
Spiders and small insects occasionally inhabit or make nests in the burner
tubes, obstructing the gas flow. Sometimes this results in a type of fire in and
around the gas tubes called a “flashback”. To reduce the risk of a flashback,
follow the instructions below at least once a month or when your grill has not
been used for an extended period of time.
IMPORTANT
All of the gas control knobs must be turned to the “OFF” position, the fuel
must be off and the fuel line disconnected.
1. Remove burners from grill by carefully lifting each burner up and away
from gas valve orifice.
2. Wire brush the outer surface of the burner to remove food residue and dirt.
Clean any clogged ports with a stiff wire or an opened paper clip.
3. Inspect the burner for damage (cracks or holes). If any damage is found,
replace burner before use.
4. Upon reinstallation, inspect gas valve orifices for cleanliness and the
condition and location of igniters.
Care of Stainless Steel
Do NOT use wire wool pads, scrappers, harsh abrasive, scoring materials,
bleaches, or harsh cleaners on your cart or grill, or allow salt and vinegar
mixtures to remain in contact for a long period of time. This will cause
scratching, scoring, rusting and pitting.
We recommend that you clean stainless steel components with a cleaner
that is approved for stainless steel and only clean when the grill is cool and in
indirect light. Never use steel wool.
Hood and Body
Wipe the inside hood and body with detergent and hot water. The external
surfaces may be cleaned in the same fashion. Wipe all areas dry before
storing.
Storage
Please ensure that all units of the grill are clean before storing.

TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
Before you call your dealer for service please check the following:
• Is there fuel being supplied to the grill?
• If using natural gas, is the main shut-off valve open?
• If using a liquid propane cylinder, is your propane cylinder empty and have
you checked that the valve on the propane cylinder is open?
If you have checked these items, please review the troubleshooting
guide below before calling your dealer.
Burner Will Not Light
• Make sure that all burner controls are set to “OFF”.
• Remove the cooking racks and the flame tamer.
• Check to see if gas supply is reaching the burners by attempting to
manually light a burner. WARNING! If burner fails to ignite, wait 5 minutes
before attempting to ignite the same or other burners.
• If the burner will light with a match then the igniter may not be
functioning properly. Please call your authorized Kamado Joe dealer for
service.
• If you cannot light a burner with a match you need to recheck your gas
supply for leaks and to ensure that you are using the correct fuel supply
type. You also need to make sure that the gas supply is of adequate
pressure.
• If the burner will not light with a match and you are confident that you
are getting gas to the burner then it is likely that you have a clogged or
blocked burner. Turn off all gas connections, wait for the gas to dissipate
and remove the burner. Check the burner for blockages.
Improper Burner Flame
• Check burner gas inlet area for blockage
• Check orifice hoods for any clogs and clean.
• Adjust air shutter, if necessary. See “Burner Flame Air Flow Adjustment” on
page 16.
• Check pressure if flame is too low or too high.
• Check gas supply tank (LP) if running low.
31
Flashback
When fires occurs in and around the burner tubes, immediately turn off gas
at its source and turn the control knob(s) clockwise to the “OFF” position. Wait
until the grill has cooled off and then clean the burners as described as the
previous manual.
Light Bulb Replacement
WARNING: Never attempt to replace a light bulb when the grill is in use. Serious burns will result.
WARNING: Never touch halogen bulbs with your bare fingers. Use a tissue
or a small piece of paper to handle bulbs. Oils from your hands will damage
halogen bulbs.
Changing a light bulb
1.Open the grill hood and locate the glass light covers at the back of the grill.
2.Using a screwdriver to loosen the screw to remove the lens.
3.Pull the burnt bulb out of the socket.
4.Using a tissue or small piece of paper, carefully push a new bulb into the
socket, making sure both wires on the bulb go into the light socket evenly.
5.Carefully replace the light cover by snapping it in place.
6.Tighten the screw.
LED lights Replacement
The LED system is inside of the grill. If any of the LED goes out, please contact
your dealer or Kamado JOE service for a qualified technician and service parts.
