CONGRATULATIONS! YOU ARE READY TO USE THE KAMADO GRILL NOW!
STARTING/LIGHTING YOUR KAMADO GRILL
STEP 1 Kamado Grill is easy to start. Locate the fire grate inside the firebox as shown in Figure
13. Add enough charcoal that starts just below the holes in the wall of the fire box, with the
peak of the mound just below the upper edge of the fire ring. (See Figure 13) Please follow
important tips of adding charcoal as below.
Figure 13
8
IMPORTANT TIPS:
A. Build the mound with larger chunks at the bottom, while leaving smaller ones on
top as you build it. Do not dump charcoals directly into the firebox. Smaller
pieces could block the air holes of the fire grate.
B. Less charcoal should be added for initial lighting of the charcoal. After you get some
charcoal lit, spread out the lit charcoal on the fire grate evenly, and add more charcoal
as needed.
C. Do not start the grill with too much charcoal, it will rapidly reach a high temperature,
and it will take longer time to get the temperature down to your desired cooking
temperature.
D. Charcoal could be relit 2 or 3 times for multiple cooking. Use the ash tool to stir the
used charcoal in order to make ashes drop down through the fire grate. Add 1/3 fresh
charcoal to the used charcoal for building a new mound.
E. A full firebox of ONLY fresh charcoal is highly recommended when smoking & searing
to reach desired temperatures.
STEP 2 Open the bottom vent door and leave the dome open. Light the charcoal with a fire
starter cube or two, chimney starter, electric starter or other method. Wait 8-10 minutes for the
charcoal to build a small bed of ember. Then close the dome, and leave the top vent fully open.
CAUTIONS:
A. NEVER USE ANY LIGHTER LIQUID or any other combustible liquids to light up the
charcoal.
B. NEVER use “Instant Light” briquettes. The grill will cook the fuel flavor in your food.
C. NEVER use briquette charcoal. This type of charcoal can not reach temperatures
above 500°F and it does not offer true charcoal flavor.
D. ALWAYS use protective gloves to operate the grill. The grill is hot during operation.
COOKING TEMPERATURE ADJUSTMENT
To achieve a consistent cooking temperature as high as 750°F or as low as 225°F is easy on your
Kamado Grill. Actually you can maintain low temperatures for up to 12 hours without adding
any more natural lump charcoal.
OUR KAMADO GRILL COOKING TEMPERATURE IS TO BE CONTROLLED BY ADJUSTING THE TOP
VENT AND BOTTOM VENT. INCREASING AIR FLOW THROUGH THE TOP AND BOTTOM VENT
WILL ACHIEVE A HIGHER COOKING TEMPERATURE, WHILE DECREASING AIR FLOW THROUGH
THE
TOP AND BOTTOM VENT WILL ACHIEVE A LOWER COOKING TEMPERATURE. THIS IS THE KEY TO
ALL THE COOKING TECHNIQUES ON YOUR KAMADO GRILL.
9
CAUTION – If you are going to cook at a low & slow temperature, do not let the grill get too hot.
It takes hours to get temperatures down. Just start the grill with as little charcoal as possible.

WARNING! PREVENT A “FLASHBACK”
If the dome is lifted suddenly after a period of time for cooking, a sudden surge of flame or heat
called a “FLASHBACK” could occur. This is caused by the sudden exposure to oxygen.
To prevent a “FLASHBACK”, fully open both top and bottom vents and wait for 5 seconds, then
lift up the dome about 1” for 2-3 seconds. After that, you could fully open the dome.
COOKING CONFIGURATIONS
COOKING CONFIGURATION: SMOKING or Roasting (see figure 14)
This configuration is for smoking meats and other foods requiring indirect heat. It is
recommended to place a drip pan on the top of the heat deflector.
This configuration is also great for roasting chicken (with our without a Chicken Stand), turkey or
10
other foods requiring indirect heat. Higher cooking temperature is required for roasting by
adjusting the top and bottom vent.

CLEANING & MAINTENANCE
The Kamado Grill is made of quality materials, so there is not much general cleaning &
maintenance. The best way to protect your Kamado Grill is to store a grill cover. (See Figure 19)
Figure 19
CLEANING ASHES FROM YOUR GRILL
Usually there is a need to remove the ashes underneath the firebox after cooking. An Ash
Cleaning Tool is included in the Kamado Grill. Please follow the steps for removing ashes from a
grill in a cart or a grill table.
CAUTION! Wait until the ashes and the ceramics are completely cool. Then removing ashes from
your grill and properly disposing of.
STEPS
1. If there is any partially used charcoal in the firebox, stir the charcoal so any ash in the firebox
will drop down.
2. Open the bottom vent door fully, and place a small container under the opening to catch the
ash. It is recommended to have a little water in the ash container before you remove ashes
into the container. Wind might blow away ashes.
3. Insert the Ash Cleaning Tool through the bottom vent door and pull out ashes into the ash
container.
GRILL BANDS
Check position and tightness of both upper and lower bands, and also the hinge at the
beginning of every grilling season or annually. If the bands & hinge are in proper position, use a
10mm wrench and Allen wrench (included in the grill package) to check the tightness of each
band connectors, side shelves brackets connectors, and hinge connectors. If loose, please tighten
all connectors fully. If a band is not centered, loosen the band enough to push it back in position.
Then tighten the band connector with a 10mm wrench and Allen wrench.
13
CLEANING YOUR KAMADO GRILL
If your Kamado Grill is not used for a certain period of time, moisture can be trapped inside the
grill and you might see mold or mildew on some parts like the cooking grids or internal ceramics.
This can be easily cleaned, since Kamado Grills are self-cleaning, using the following steps.
CAUTION! Do not use bleach or other cleaning liquids or products. It will leave an unpleasant taste
in food.
1. Add charcoal and light it. Allow the grill to heat to a higher temperature up to 600°F for 15
minutes with the dome closed.
2. Allow the grill to cool down completely with dome closed.
3. Before cooking, brush the cooking grids with a standard grill brush. You can also use a soft
bristle brush to remove any residue on ceramics. (Do not use any bristle brush to clean the
outer side of the ceramics with glaze.)
GASKET REPLACEMENT
The felt gasket material will degrade over time. Depending on the use of the grill, the exposed
gasket material on the ceramic base and dome and the neck of the dome might need to be
replaced every 1 or 2 years.
1. Use a box cutter to make a cross cut on the old gasket material. Pull off the loose material by
hand as much as possible. (See Figure 20)
2. Use a paint scraper with enough pressure to scrape around the edges of the dome and base.
Remove the remaining gasket material and adhesive as much as possible. Be careful not to
press too hard or at a steep angle to avoid damage to the ceramic or glaze. (See Figure21)
Figure 20
Figure 21
3. Clean edges of the dome and base with solvent.
4. Remove about 6” of the white backing material of the new felt gasket. Facing the grill, start
the new gasket on the base dome at the center of the rear side near to the hinge. (See Figure
22) And ensure that the new gasket is flush to the interior of the base dome edge.
14
Figure 22
5. Use a box cutter to remove excess gasket material, so the ends meet flush and create a
seamless gasket. (See Figure 23)
6. Follow same steps as above to replace the gasket on the neck of the dome. (See Figure 21)
Figure 23
CLEANING HEAT DEFLECTOR AND PIZZA STONE
Allow ceramic heat deflector and pizza stone to cool completely before cleaning and indoor
storage. Just wipe off food material with a brush and store inside a dry place.
CAUTION!
 DO NOT place the hot ceramics on tables or surfaces that are not heat resistant.
 DO NOT use either ceramic plate to cook with on a stove top.
 DO NOT use cleaning chemicals or soap and water.
 DO NOT soak in water. It may cause it to crack during the next use.
