LP Gas and Cylinder Information
Your new gas grill operates on LP (Liquid Petroleum) Gas. It is odorless, colorless, and non-toxic when
produced. You can smell LP gas as it has been given an odor similar to rotten cabbage for your safety.
Triangular Hand Wheel
Your grill uses the newest and safest LP Gas Cylinder.
1. O.P.D. (Overfill Protection Device) – prevents accidental gas leaks
caused by overfilling of the tank. Each tank contains a float that
closes the input valve when the tank is 80% full. This allows room
for the LP gas to expand in hot temperatures. A triangular hand wheel
distinguishes this type of tank.
2. O.C.C.1 Type 1 Quick Connect Valve – provides fast tank hook-ups and requires only to be tightened by
hand.
In addition, the LP tank you use with your grill must meet the following requirements
1. Required Measurements: 12-1/2” (317mm) in diameter and 18-1/2” (472mm) in height.
2. 20-pound (9.1kg) propane cylinder.
3. Constructed and marked with U.S. Department of Transportation (D.O.T.) for the US or CAN/CSAB339, Cylinders, Spheres and Tubes for Transportation of Dangerous Goods; and Commission, for
Canada.
4. A safety release valve.
5. A means for vapor withdrawal.
!
WARNING
1. Do not attempt to use a cylinder with any other type of connection device.
2. Do not attempt to use a cylinder with a larger capacity
18

1. Use only a licensed dealer.
2. The dealer must first purge the cylinder before filling.
3. Never fill a cylinder more than 80% full by volume. Volume will vary by temperature. An empty
cylinder weighs approximately 18 pounds (8.2kgs). A full one approximately 38 pounds (17.3kgs).
4. Be sure the LP dealer checks the cylinder for leaks after filling.
5. Do not release LP gas into the atmosphere, as it can unexpectedly ignite when mixed with air.
6. Contact a LP dealer to remove LP gas from a cylinder.

Cleaning Your Grill
! WARNING
1. Do not clean any part of your barbecue grill in a self-cleaning oven.
2. Do not use oven cleaners, abrasive kitchen cleaners, cleaners that contain citrus products, or mineral
spirits.
3. Do not use any type of steel bristled brush.
4. Clean your grill regularly to prohibit grease build-ups and avoid a grease fire or excessive flare-ups.
5. Always allow the grill to cool down prior to cleaning.
STAINLESS STEEL – clean with multipurpose low abrasive non-phosphorous metal or stainless steel polish
and a soft cloth. Always polish in the direction of the lines. Do not allow grease and dirt to accumulate.
In addition, the following products and naturally occurring substances in the outdoors will damage all stainless
steel finishes. Use caution so that they do not come in contact with your Gas Grill. Immediately wash them off
and dry the stainless steel should they ever come in contact with your Gas Grill. This includes, but is not
limited to, Pool Chemicals (chlorine and bromine), Lawn Fertilizer, Ice Melting Salts, Sea or Salt Water, Urine,
Bird Droppings, and Tree Sap.
OTHER EXTERIOR SURFACES– wash with a mild dish soap and warm water. A cloth, soft brush, or
plastic cleaning pad can be used. Rinse thoroughly and wipe dry.
COOKING GRATES, WARMING RACK, AND HEAT DIFFUSERS – use a stiff brass brush. Wash with
warm water and mild dish soap as needed, rinse, and dry.
GREASE PAN AND TRAY – check after each use. Remove and empty the Tray when half full. Remove and
clean the Pan as grease builds up. Both can be washed with warm water and mild dish soap.
ELECTRONIC IGNITER – visually inspect for cracks. Replace if a crack is found. Do not use water to
clean the igniter.
BURNERS – we recommend you clean your burners at least twice a year, or before use if the grill has not been
used in over one month.
!
WARNING
Small insects, such as spiders, are able to access the burner tubes. Sometimes they will build nests or spin
webs. In either case, this can block or reduce the amount of gas flowing through the burner. You will
usually see a smaller flame, or a flame that is mostly yellow rather than blue, coming from the burner when
this happens. Other signs include the gill not heating evenly, not reaching temperature, or burners not
igniting. In cases with severe blockage, this can cause the flame to burn backwards, and outside of the
burner tubes, which can cause damage to your grill and/or personal injury. IMMEDIATELY SHUT OFF
THE FLOW OF LP GAS AT THE CYLINDER BY TURNING THE HAND WHEEL
CLOCKWISE SHOULD THIS HAPPEN. Wait for the grill to cool, and then clean all burners.
24
CLEANING THE BURNERS
1. Ensure the LP gas is turned off at the LP cylinder.
2. Remove the cooking grates, heat diffusers, and grease tray.
3. Remove the cotter pins located underneath the back end of each burner.
4. Lift each burner up and out.
5. Clean the inside of the burner using a stiff wire. A straightened coat
hanger is one suggested tool. An alternative way to clean the inside
of the burner is using compressed air. Always wear eye protection
if using this method. Never enlarge the burner ports during cleaning.
6. Brush the outer surface of the burner.
7. Ensure all ports (holes) are free of all debris
8. Inspect the burner. Replace if any cracks or enlarged holes.
9. Reinstall the burners making sure the burners seat over the
valves as shown in the figure to the right.
! WARNING
Properly locating the burner with respect to the orifice is vital for safety.
10. Secure the back of the burners to the firebox with the cotter pins.
11. Replace the grease tray, heat diffusers, and cooking grates.
12. Perform a Leak Test described earlier in this guide.
BURNER FLAMES
Always inspect the burner flame after lighting. A good
flame should be primarily blue with a yellow tip and have
a minimal amount of noise. Some yellow tips are OK if
under one inch. New burners sometimes have oil residue,
which will cause yellow flame when burning off. Variations
in gas supply, altitude, weather, and other factors can all
impact burner performance. Older grills can also show
more yellow flame as food deposits, oils, and fats can build up.
ALWAYS
1. Keep the grilling area clear and free from combustible materials, gasoline and other flammable vapors and
liquids.
2. Do not obstruct the flow of combustion and ventilation air.
3. Keep the ventilation openings of the cylinder enclosure free and clear from debris.
ELECTRONIC IGNITION MAINTENANCE
Your grill is equipped with electronic ignition. It’s powered by one “AA” size battery. Replace the battery
when necessary. Unscrew the igniter top. Place the new battery into the igniter with the positive (+) end of the
battery facing up. Screw the igniter top back into place.
GRILL STORAGE
1. Clean your grill before storage.
2. Storage of a gas grill indoors is permissible only if the cylinder is disconnected and removed from the
gas grill.
3. Cover the grill.
4. Perform a Leak Test before use after storage.

Grilling With Your New Grill
Welcome to the world of grilling. Whether you’re already an established griller, or just starting out, your new
grill should bring you much enjoyment and satisfaction, to say nothing of some phenomenal meals. We
encourage you to experiment to find your own favorite recipes.
The control panel is labeled “HI/LIGHT”, “LOW”, and “OFF” for each burner control knob. Simply push in on
the temperature control knobs and turn to the desired heat setting. A thermometer is placed in the hood so that
you can see the cooking temperature inside the grill.
The heat diffusers are designed to help evenly distribute heat throughout the grill. They are also designed to
catch and smoke the right amount of drippings, adding more flavors to your meal.
DIRECT VS. INDIRECT COOKING
Food cooked on the grill is either done using direct or indirect cooking. Direct cooking is when the food is
cooked directly over the heat. Food is placed in-between the burners for indirect cooking.
DIRECT – used for preheating and searing
Use Direct cooking to sear meats. This helps to keep food moist by locking in juices. Some food, such as steak,
is first seared using Direct cooking, and then finished cooking using the Indirect method. This is generally used
for quicker cooking foods. Preheat the grill to 500°F (260°C). You can shut off one or more burners if you do
not need to use the entire grilling surface once you reach over 500°F(260°C). You can also use a medium high
heat of 400°F or more by turning the burners down slightly. Place the food directly over the heat source.
Remain vigilant when grilling using this method, as it’s easy to overcook.
INDIRECT – how most food is cooked on a gas grill
Indirect cooking is used for foods that take longer to cook, including large cuts of meat such as roasts. It’s also
used for cooking more delicate food that can dry out quickly such as fish and poultry, for fattier foods to reduce
flare-ups, and when grilling using a roasting pan or aluminum foil. Preheat the grill to 500°F(260°C). Then
turn some burners off, and others to medium to low depending on the temperature you want to maintain.
Generally, turn the center burner off for a 3-burner model and the 2 inside burners off on a 4-burner model.
Grills with more than 4 burners will vary depending on what you are cooking. Generally, you want to keep the
temperature around 350°F. Do not place the food directly over any burners when using this grilling method. .
SIDE BURNER
Use the side burner to boil soups, corn on the cob, lobster, steam, stir-fries, or warm.
GRILLING TIPS AND TRICKS
1. Always “Preheat” your grill before cooking. Light all main burners, turn to “HI”, and close the lid until the
thermometer reads over 500°F (260°C), which should be 4 minutes. Then adjust the burner control knobs to
the proper temperature. Note that no preheating is necessary for the side burner.
2. The thermometer measures the temperature at the top of the lid. The temperature down by the cooking grates
is generally somewhat warmer.
3. Mother Nature can impact your grilling times. Allow more cooking time for cold, wind, and higher altitudes.
We recommend you place the grill in an area protected from much wind.
4. Trim away any excess fat from meat to reduce flare-ups.
26
5. Keep similar size portions together so that they cook more evenly.
6. Generally speaking, the more food on the grill, the longer the cooking time.
7. Be aware when using the Direct cooking method, as food can easily become overcooked, burned, or dry out.
Food may require more turning, or sometimes, may need to be moved off the flame.
8. Larger pieces of meat generally require more cooking time per pound than smaller pieces of meat.
9. If a major flare-up, or too many flare-ups occur, turn off the gas, move the food away from the flare-up, and
close the hood. Restart the grill once the flare-up has died down.
10. Turn foods infrequently. Generally, only turn a steak once during cooking.
11. Use tongs rather than a fork when turning the food on the grill. Less juice will be lost that way.
12. Know your sauce and when to apply. Oil and vinegar based sauces can be brushed on any time. Sugar
based sauces like barbecue sauce should be applied during the last few minutes of cooking.
13. A timer can help you keep from over-cooking the food.
14. Use insulated protective mitts or potholders when working around a grill in operation.
15. Use a small amount of cooking oil on the cooking grates before heating to reduce foods sticking on the
grates.
FOOD SAFETY
1. Always use safe food handling and preparation when using this grill.
2. Wash all poultry, seafood, and vegetables before cooking.
3. Use separate platters, plates, and utensils for uncooked and cooked foods.
4. Leave all meat, poultry, and seafood in the refrigerator until ready to cook.
5. Use a meat thermometer to ensure foods are adequately cooked.
Trouble Shooting Guide
BURNER WILL NOT LIGHT
1.) Gas supply is turned off. Turn on gas at LP tank.
2.) Out of propane. Check to be sure you still have propane in your tank.
3.) Regulator is not properly seated into the tank valve. Remove and reattach. Hand tighten only.
4.) Crimped fuel supply hose. Inspect and straighten.
5.) Regulator failure or damaged hose. Order replacement part and replace.
6.) Make sure you can hear the electronic igniter clicking. If not, replace the battery with an “AA” size.
Inspect the electrode to be sure it’s not coated in grease or dirt. If so, clean with rubbing alcohol. Check
the distance from the electrode tip to the burner. The tip of the electrode should be 1/8” to ¼” from the
main burner and 1/8” to 3/16” from the side burner. Adjust if necessary. Inspect the electrodes to be
sure they are not cracked or broken. If so, order replacement parts and replace.
7.) Blockage in the gas system. Inspect the burners to be sure insects, spider webs, etc do not block them.
Clean if necessary. Inspect under the control panel to be sure the burners are aligned properly with the
valves.
IRREGULAR FLAME OR YELLOW FLAME
1.) New burner may have residual oil, which will burn off.
2.) Tubes in burners are blocked. Remove and clean.
3.) Burners have a high grease or dirt build-up. Remove and clean.
4.) Burners are not aligned properly with the valves. Inspect under the control panel.
SUDDEN DROP IN GAS PRESSURE OR FLAMES BLOW OUT
1.) Out of gas. Check to be sure you still have propane in your tank.
27
2.) Your excessive fuel flow valve has tripped, thereby reducing the flow of gas. Turn off all burners, wait
30 seconds, and relight grill. If problem persists, turn off all burners. Disconnect regulator from tank.
Wait 10 minutes. Reconnect regulator and leak test. Slowly turn on LP tank and relight grill. Other
ways the flow limiting device can be activated include
a. A ruptured gas hose. Inspect, perform a leak test, and replace as necessary.
b. Opening the control knobs before turning on the LP gas at the tank. Turn on the gas at the LP
tank first before turning on a control knob to light.
c. Improper purging of tank before it was filled. See your LP gas dealer.
3.) Wind could be blowing out your burners. Turn front of grill to face wind or move out of the wind.
EXCESSIVE FLARE-UPS
1.) Heat diffusers, inside of grill, grates, and burners need to be cleaned.
2.) Grease tray needs to be cleaned and emptied.
3.) Using too high of heat to cook. Reduce control knob setting.
4.) Direct cooking method will produce more flare-ups than indirect. If using direct method, try using
indirect.
FIRE BEHIND CONTROL PANEL
Immediately shut off LP tank valve and allow grill to cool.
1.) Check burners for obstructions and clean.
2.) Inspect under the control panel to be sure the burners are aligned properly with the valves.
3.) Gas is leaking from a faulty connection or damaged hose. Perform a leak test and inspect for leaks.
Tighten or replace parts as necessary.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I convert my gas grill from one fuel source to another?
No. Your gas grill is manufactured to specific standards developed by CSA and ANSI for your safety
and grilling performance for either LP or Natural Gas. We do not offer conversion kits nor do we
recommend you change the fuel type.
What is the difference between 304 commercial series stainless steel and others?
304 series stainless steel is also called 18/8, which means that it contains 18% chromium and 8% nickel.
The chromium gives the stainless steel its color and its corrosion resistant properties on the surface. The
nickel, which is what differentiates 304 series stainless steel, hardens the surface for additional
protection. Some manufacturers use a 430 series stainless steel, which is 18/0. It contains less that 1%
nickel. Therefore, it provides less corrosion protection and rust resistance. Our grills use only 304
series stainless steel. 304 series stainless steel is not magnetic, where 430 series stainless steel is.
How are your grills tested?
Our grills are tested and certified by CSA, a leading worldwide independent testing center, to meet or
exceed various CSA and ANSI standards along with various performance standards. The burners and
gas line in each grill are also individually tested when each grill comes off the assembly line just prior to
packaging. Each burner is ignited for this test.
What is the humming noise I sometimes here coming from my regulator?
The humming sound you can hear is just gas flowing through the regulator. There is no need to be
concerned with a low volume of noise.
My grill has a low flame on some burners, or some burners will not light at all. What can cause this?
This can be caused by the regulator’s flow limiting device, which is generated by a sudden change in
pressure. Opening the tank valve too quickly can cause this. In this case, close the LP tank valve and
disconnect from the regulator. Let it stand for 10 minutes. Reconnect the regulator to the LP tank.
Open the grill lid. Slowly open the LP tank valve. Follow the burner lighting procedures and light the
burner furthest from the LP tank. Continue to light the other burners as you move towards the LP tank.
Can I use ceramic plates, briquettes of any kind, or lava rocks?
No. Your grill is designed for use only with the heat diffusers. Grease drips down on to the diffusers
and is burned, creating steam and additional flavor.
