BEFORE YOU START
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 unprotected 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, in Canada.
IF SHIPMENT ARRIVES DAMAGED
VISIBLE LOSS OR DAMAGE
CONCEALED LOSS OR DAMAGE
Be certain any visible damage to the carton is noted on
freight bill or express receipt and signed by the person
making delivery.
If damage is unnoticed until the grill is unpacked, notify
the transportation company or carrier immediately and file
a “concealed damage” claim with them. This should be
done within (5) days of the date delivery is made to you. Be
sure to hold on to the container for inspection. We cannot
assume responsibility for damage or loss incurred in transit.
(See INDEX: “Obtaining Service from Lynx” for further
details.)
FILE CLAIM FOR DAMAGES IMMEDIATELY, regardless of
extent of damage.
IMPORTANT NOTES
WHERE’S THE WIND?
HOW LONG IS YOUR RUN?
When selecting a suitable location, consider important
factors such as exposure to the wind and foot-traffic
patterns.
Keep all gas supply lines as short as possible because
gas lines lose pressure over distance and with each elbow
and tee that is added. This drop in pressure affects grill
performance. (See INDEX: “Gas Supply Line Runs” for
further details.)
If you have a freestanding grill, position it so the prevailing
wind blows into 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.
ARE YOU “ON-THE-LEVEL”?
Proper leveling during installation is critical. A grill that
is out of level will cause erratic burner combustion and
inefficient, uneven heating. A carpenter’s spirit level
should be used to level the grill both front-to-back and
side-to-side.
If the floor is uneven or has a decided slope, re-leveling
may be required each time you move a freestanding unit.
Be sure wind doesn’t blow into the hood gap.

CARE & USE/INSTALLATION
BEFORE YOU START ...continued
BUILT-IN INSTALLATIONS
The Lynx Built-In Grill is designed for easy installation into
masonry enclosures.
NOTE: Lynx built-in grills are intended either for
installation in a built-in enclosure constructed of
non-combustible materials or for an installation in a built
in enclosure constructed of combustible material when
installed with a Lynx insulating jacket (LIJ).
For non-combustible applications, the grill drops into the
opening shown in the cutout detail drawing (See INDEX:
“Gas Requirements”) and hangs from its counter-top trim. A
deck is not required to support it from the bottom.
When using the insulated jacket in a combustible enclosure,
the jacket must be supported from the bottom by a ledge
on each side or a full deck beneath the jacket.
A minimum of 6” of clearance is needed on the left side of
the grill above the counter top for the motor and skewer.
If the grill is to be placed into a combustible enclosure, an
approved insulated jacket is necessary and is available only
from your Lynx dealer. Lynx insulated jackets have been
designed and tested specifically for your Grill.
REAR HOOD CLEARANCE
A 3 inch clearance is required behind the grill to allow the
front hood to open.
The grill exhausts combustion products and cooking
greases to the back. Never locate the grill where this
exhaust will be difficult to clean.
Overhead Construction
(See INDEX: “Gas Requirements”) Pay special attention to
the provisions shown for gas line hook-up.
The enclosure should have ventilation holes to prevent gas
build-up in the event of a leak. The deck ledges and counter should be flat and level. (refer to ANSI Z21.58 Standard
for Outdoor Cooking Gas Appliances, Section 1.7 Enclosures For Self Contained LP-Gas Supply Systems)
This grill requires that a 120 volt, 60 hertz, 15 amp GFI certified outlet be installed by a qualified electrician.
Never locate the transformer or grill gas line behind the grill
inside the insulated jacket.
CLEARANCE TO COMBUSTIBLE MATERIALS
Minimum clearance from the sides and back of the grill to
adjacent combustible construction below the counter top
surface is 12” from the sides and back.
Dégagement minimal entre les parois latérales et l’arrière de l’appariel
et la construction combustible au-dessous du panneau supérieur de
l’appareil (30 cm à partir des parois latérales et 30 cm à partir de
l’arrière).
Minimum clearance from sides and back of grill to adjacent
combustible construction extending above the counter top
surface is 18” from the sides and back.
Dégagement horizontal minimal entre les parois latérales et l’arrière
de l’appariel et la construction verticale combustible au-dessus de
l’appareil (45.7 cm à partir des parois latérales et 45.7 cm à partir de
l’arrière).
Do not use this appliance under unprotected overhead
combustible surfaces.
Ne pas utiliser cet appareil sous une surface combustible non protégée.

If installed under any combustible contruction the
cooking area over the grill must be covered with an exhaust
hood. The hood must provide 3-6 inches of overhang on all
exposed sides. The exhaust hood shall provide no less than
1,200 CFM for proper exhaust ventilation. The hood must
be approved for outdoor installation and provided with a
dedicated GFCI protected branch circuit.

UNPACKING & ASSEMBLY
The grill arrives nearly ready to use and requires only minor
assembly.
By carefully following the uncrating and unpacking steps,
you will improve the customer’s first Lynx experience.
Shipping weight on smaller units is app. 300 pounds and
larger units may weigh over 500 pounds.
When pushing, lifting, or pulling a freestanding Lynx Grill
across gravel, grass, pavers, brick, stone, imperfections in
the surface, or wood slatted decks be cautious and move
slowly or use a carpet dolly. Failure to do so may damage
the structure of the cart which will not be covered under
warranty.
INTERIOR PACKING
WARNING:
EXCESSIVE WEIGHT HAZARD!
Use two or more people to move or install this
unit. Failure to follow this instruction can result in
back or other personal injuries.
Lynx uses sturdy tie-down cables and straps to ensure
your grill arrives at your home in the same condition that
it left our factory. BE SURE YOU HAVE REMOVED ALL TIE
DOWNS BEFORE USING YOUR GRILL.
•Remove the white accessory box and wood packing, the
grill racks, and remove any loose items from the firebox.
CRATE & CARTON
•IMPORTANT! Do not remove staples around the top of
the carton. These staples hold a wooden pallet in place
inside the carton that protects the unit from damage.
Removing these staples may cause the pallet to fall on
the top of grill.
How to Remove the Carton
•Cut the main strap holding the grill to the pallet.
•Remove the staples at the bottom of the carton.
•Lift off the carton.
•With assistance, remove the grill from the pallet and
place into desired location.
Grill will not
slide directly
off pallet.
Wire Tie Down
•Carefully cut the cable ties securing the warming rack and
rotisserie spit.
•Cut the strapping that secures the briquette trays and
carefully lift them out, front first.
Make sure you remember to remove the wire tie-downs on
the burners.
The wheels sit down in the gaps of the shipping crate so
that the grill can sit safely and solidly on the crate during
shipping. The grill cannot be slid directly off of the pallet.
One way to safely move the grill off of the pallet is by lifting
one end of the grill high enough to place a ramp under the
wheel and then lift the
other end while rolling
the grill off of the pallet.

GAS CONNECTIONS
WARNING
NEVER CONNECT A GAS LINE DIRECTLY TO THE GRILL. A PRESSURE REGULATOR MUST BE INSTALLED ON
ALL GAS EQUIPMENT. ALL LOCAL CODES REQUIRE IT AND LYNX SUPPLIES THE CORRECT REGULATOR
WITH YOUR GRILL. REMOVING OR FAILING TO INSTALL THE PRESSURE REGULATOR CAN RESULT IN FIRE
AND SERIOUS PERSONAL INJURY AND WILL VOID THE WARRANTY.
The grill is factory set to use either propane (LP) or natural
gas (NAT). It is critical that the gas you use matches that
which the grill was set up for. You can verify that by checking the rating plate.
Canadian installations must conform to CGA-B149.1/.2
natural gas/propane installation code. (Canada)
NATURAL GAS
Lynx recommends that only qualified professionals perform
the required plumbing on this product.
The Rating plate lists serial numbers, model numbers and gas
type. This one is underneath the drip tray.
The rating plate is located in one or more of the following
places:
•Attached to the underside of the drip tray
•On the heat shield behind the front panel
Ensure that the gas supplied meets with the minimum
pressure requirements. Do not operate the grill on any gas
other than that for which the grill has been set.

CARE & USE/INSTALLATION
To ensure satisfactory performance, the gas supply line
must be sized to accommodate the total BTU requirements
of all the gas-fired equipment that will be connected to that
line.
In no case should an inlet pipe less than 3/4” inside
diameter or 1” outside diameter ever be used to connect
this product.
•Calculate the total BTU output of all equipment and
refer to “INDEX: Gas Supply Line Runs” for allowable run
distances for ¾ inch pipe. Failure to meet these minimum
requirements may reduce performance of the grill and
any other appliances running on that supply line.
•Always keep supply line runs as short as possible. (See
INDEX: “BTU Output” for specific model outputs)
•A gas shut-off valve must be installed in an easily accessible location by a qualified plumber.
•Keep threading compound off of the first two pipe
threads to avoid having any small pieces of compound
break loose and clog a burner valve or orifice. Do not use
threading compound on any flare fittings.
Keep last two
threads clean
For built-in installations, it is recommended that any flexible
pipe used be kept as short as possible. (See INDEX: “Gas
Connections” for typical permanent hook up.)
GAS CONNECTIONS ...continued
For freestanding units using natural gas, Lynx recommends
using a mobile flex gas line.
This is available at your local hardware store or from your
dealer.
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.
WARNING
Do not change the regulator/hose assembly or
use any other assembly than the one supplied
with your Lynx grill.
Do not attempt to use a 5LP-A equipped regulator/hose assembly with a standard 510 POL
cylinder/valve assembly.
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.
LP Cylinder Requirements
LP cylinder with type 1 valve connection
Permanently plumbed LP connections, such as those in line
with a bulk cylinder, require a 4/11 regulator. (Lynx P/N 30781)
When using the 4/11 regulator you must ensure that it is
set for the proper fuel type. This is done by removing the
regulator cap and gasket and looking at the bottom of the
plunger to see what fuel type is visible. This is the regulator fuel setting. NAT is for natural gas and LP is for propane
gas. The LP setting can be further identified by the large
diameter disk on the bottom of the plunger. To change
from one gas to the other simply push the plunger to the
side to snap it out of the cap, turn the plunger so it reads
the desired gas type on the bottom, and push the plunger
until it snaps back into place in the cap then replace the
cap into the regulator.
Never connect an unregulated gas line to the grill.
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) and designed for use
with a Type 1 system only.
Cylinders of free standing grills 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 should
be avoided. If in doubt, have it checked by your LP supplier.
Always check for leaks after every LP cylinder change. (See
INDEX: “Leak Test” for further details.)
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.
LP Connections
Make sure the LP cylinder valve is fully closed. It is possible
for the valve to be open without releasing gas but, as soon
as you start connecting the regulator, gas will leak from the
connection.

GAS CONNECTIONS ...continued
Insert the regulator inlet into the cylinder valve and turn the
black coupler clockwise until the coupler is hand tight. Do
not over-tighten this connection.
GAS CONVERSION KITS
Gas conversion kits are available from Lynx Grills to
allow the grill to operate on either Natural gas or
LPG. These kits should be installed by a qualified
technician or certified plumber.
To disconnect the coupler, first make sure the main cylinder
valve is turned off. Grasp the coupler and turn counter
clockwise. The inlet will then disengage.
Always leak-test the connection after refilling or exchanging
LP cylinders. (See INDEX: “Leak Test” for further details.)
The kits come with complete installation instructions.
These instructions should be read completely and
fully understood before installing the conversion kit.
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.
•Push in the rotisserie knob and confirm that the igniter
is glowing. It is furthest from the fuel source and will
completely purge the lines. It will take several seconds for
the burner to light.

FINAL CHECKS
LEAK TESTING
LOW HEAT BURNER ADJUSTMENT
FOR MAIN BRASS AND Trident ™ BURNERS ONLY!
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 tests should be conducted outdoors only. Never conduct a leak test
using fire or flame.
DO NOT ADJUST THE ROTISSERIE BURNER.
The main brass burners and Trident ™ burner on your Lynx
grill feature an adjustable low setting.
Fluctuations in gas pressure, gas conversion and even in the
quality of the gas itself may affect burner performance at the
“LOW” setting. It could be either too high or too low.
To Adjust the Burner to a Low Setting:
•Make sure the grill is cool.
Leak Test Procedure:
•Create a soapy solution of 1 part soap and 3 parts water.
•Confirm that all control knobs are in the off position.
•Turn on the fuel supply. For natural gas, turn the valve
handle 1/4 turn to align with the gas flow.
•For L.P., turn the cylinder valve knob counter clockwise
one full rotation.
•Apply the soap solution generously by paint brush or
squirt bottle on all connections and fittings.
•Remove the racks so you can see the flames while
adjusting the burners.
•Light the burner and allow it to preheat on high for 3
minutes.
•Turn the burner to “LOW”.
•Pull off the control knob.
•While holding the valve shaft with pliers as shown insert a
small flat screwdriver into the center shaft and adjust the
flame’s low setting. (1/8” blade 3” long shaft)

•If bubbles appear to “grow” on any of the connections,
you have a gas leak. IMMEDIATELY turn off the gas supply.
Fixing a Gas Leak:
•Shut off the gas supply
•Turn all grill controls to the “ON” position to purge the
grill of any gas build-up, then turn the controls back
“OFF”.
•Wash off the soapy solution with cold water and dry.
•Tighten the loose joint, or replace the faulty part with
manufacturer-recommended replacement parts.
•DO NOT attempt to repair the L.P. cylinder valve if it
is damaged. The only way to safely resolve a damaged
cylinder is to REPLACE IT.
•Repeat the leak test to ensure that no leaks are present.
raise it.
The proper setting is where the flame is stable at its
lowest setting. A slight flutter will be present in the crossover portion of the front of the burner before the burner
itself becomes weak.
The factory setting for propane gas is ½ to ¾ turn from the
very bottom of the adjustment. The setting for natural gas
is 1-½ to 1-¾ from the bottom. After the low settings are
proper, turn all burners to high for visual inspection.

FINAL CHECKS ...continued
BRASS BURNER FLAME/AIR SHUTTER 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.
•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 clockwise.
•After the burner cools down, remove it, tighten the air
shutter set screw and reinstall the burner, briquette trays
and grill racks.
The flames of the main brass burners should be visually
checked.
Flames should be blue and stable with slight yellow tips.
The bright-blue core should be about 3/8 inch high with a
total flame height of about 1 1/2 inches.
NOTE: The Trident ™ burner does not have an air shutter.
The flames should burn quietly (no “torch” sounds) and
they should not “lift” up from the burner.
If your flames do not match those indicated in the photo,
ensure that the air shutter and burner ports are free and
clear of dirt, debris, or spider webs. If clear, then adjust the
air shutter.
It is locked in place by a screw which must be loosened
before adjusting. Once adjusted retighten the screw.
To Adjust:
•The appearance of the Trident ™ burner should be visually checked. The ceramic tiles should be uniformly red to
orange in appearance. There should be no lifting, fluttering or lazy blue flames. Some food particles will show as
yellow flames but should burn off.
ONE LAST THING
Finally, before leaving, check all the burners for proper
operation. Make sure the control knobs turn freely and
completely through their full range.
IMPORTANT:
DANGER!
BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL AROUND HOT
BURNERS AND OTHER GRILL PARTS.
Make sure the owner knows where the main gas supply
shut off valve is located.
Finally, for safety and for proper use & care, you must
leave this manual with the owner. Make sure you advise
them to keep it for future reference.
For technical assistance call:
•Remove the racks and briquette trays.
•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 counterclockwise to allow more air
to the burner.

IMPORTANT SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
PLEASE REVIEW THESE IMPORTANT SAFETY PRECAUTIONS BEFORE YOU USE YOUR
GRILL.
1. NEVER LEAVE THE GRILL UNATTENDED WHILE
COOKING.
2. Ensure all tie-down wires have been removed from the
burners.
3. Always use caution when operating the grill in a windy
area. (See INDEX: “Grilling in Windy Conditions” for
further details.)
4. Avoid wearing loose-fitting garments or long sleeves
while grilling. They could ignite.
5. Never touch the grill racks, hood or immediate surrounding metal surfaces with your bare hands while
grilling.
6. Use an insulated glove or mitt when opening and operating the grill. Always open the grill lid slowly to allow
heat and smoke to escape before fully opening.
7. The grill hood must be fully opened while lighting the
grill. Releasing fuel into a closed grill before lighting
will not make it light sooner or more efficiently. It will
only risk explosion and personal injury or death. Never
lean over a hot grill surface or look directly into the grill
when attempting to light.
8. Do not heat unopened food containers as pressure
build-up will cause the container to explode.
9. Do not use aluminum foil to line grill racks or drip pans.
This will alter the airflow or trap excessive heat in the
control area and can melt control knobs and ignition
modules. Such damage is specifically excluded from
your warranty.
10. Never use charcoal or any other solid fuel in the grill.
11. Cooking excessively fatty meats and oils will cause flare
ups. Internal fires or damage caused by them or by the
grill being left unattended while cooking are not covered under the terms and conditions of our warranty.
22
|
CARE & USE/INSTALLATION
12. Never grill without the drip pan in place. Always ensure
the drip pan is pushed all the way to the back of the
grill. Hot grease can leak downward and produce a fire
or explosion.
13. Grease is extremely flammable. Let hot grease cool
down before attempting to handle or dispose of it.
The drip tray should be cleaned of grease on a regular
basis.
14. Do not use the grill unless a leak check has been performed on all gas connections. (See INDEX: “Leak Test
Procedure” for further details.)
15. Never operate the grill while under the influence of
alcohol or drugs.
16. Do not lean on side shelves and never place a load
weighing more than 25 pounds on a side shelf.
17. If any burner does not light or goes out during operation, turn off all gas control knobs, open the hood and
wait five (5) minutes before attempting to re-light.
18. Portable L.P. cylinders: Always shut off the main valve
on the L.P. cylinder after each use.
19. Spiders and insects like to nest in the burners, venturis,
valves and orifices of a grill, disrupting the gas flow.
This very dangerous condition can cause a fire behind the control panel, damaging the grill and risking
personal injury. If your grill has been unused for a long
time, inspect and clean the burners, venturis, valves
and orifices. (See INDEX: “Cleaning the Brass Burner”
for further details.)
GRILLING IN WINDY CONDITIONS
IMP
OR

Outdoor grills create more heat than interior kitchen
ranges. That’s how they sear and grill steaks and other
foods.
These high-performance burners require a constant, steady
supply of fresh air to mix with the fuel. Your Lynx grill pulls air
Wind hitting the back of the grill can
disrupt proper exhaust.
Your Lynx grill features an exclusive, patent-pending Heat
Stabilizer that will deflect wind and, in most cases, prevent
this situation.
Air enters through the front of the grill.
in through the front and vents hot gases out through the rear.
Using your grill in windy conditions may disrupt the frontto-back air flow. If, while grilling with all burners on high
and the hood closed, you notice that the temperature
gauge fails to rise ... be careful. If wind has kept hot gases
from exiting the rear of the grill the control panel and knobs
may have become extremely hot.
But there are a few things you can do to further prevent
the possibility of improper heat buildup:
•On breezy days, be careful not to leave the front
hood down when the burners are on high if the is grill
unattended.
•If you suspect the grill is overheating, using an oven mitt,
open the front hood. Then adjust the burner control knob
to a lower setting.
•Install your grill with a wind break behind it.
•Orient the grill so prevailing winds are not blowing into
the rear of the grill.
Please Note: Any damage caused from use in windy conditions, such as melted knobs or igniter wires,
or control panel discoloration from heat buildup, is excluded from warranty coverage.

USING YOUR LYNX GRILL
Grilling requires high heat for searing and low, controlled
heat for slow cooking.
Some foods are cooked using direct heat and some using
indirect heat.
Thinner cuts of food are often cooked at a “HI” heat setting
with the lid open.
Your Lynx grill features a variety of professional-level
burners and tools for meeting the wide variety of cooking
challenges. We will reveal how these features work for you.
So please read and enjoy!
On the other hand, large, thick pieces of meat or poultry
are often first seared at the high setting and then grilled
at a lower setting ... sometimes with the lid closed …
achieving the best results in the middle of the food without
burning the outside.
Depending on the model you chose, your Lynx grill may
be equipped with up to three different burner types. The
operation of each type varies, so it is important to understand all three.
Main Brass Burner
Trident ™ Burner
Rotisserie Burner
This heavy-duty, durable
brass burner is the standard main burner found
under the briquette trays.
This advanced infrared
burner provides highintensity infrared heat
for searing foods and
sealing in flavor.
This infrared burner spans the back of the
cooking surface and provides consistent heat
for slow rotisserie cooking.
PRE-GRILL CHECKLIST
BEFORE YOUR FIRST USE
There are a few must-check safety precautions to consider
before you use your grill. Please be sure that:
•All packing materials and tie-downs have been removed
from the burners. (See INDEX: “Unpacking & Assembly”
for further details.)
•You have fuel connected. (See INDEX: “Gas
Requirements” for further details.)
•You have electric connected. (See INDEX:
“Electric Requirements” for further details.)
•A qualified plumber has performed a leak test on all the
fittings that supply fuel to your grill.

|
CARE & USE/INSTALLATION
•IF YOUR GRILL DOES NOT LIGHT IN 4 TO 5 SECONDS
you may need to purge the line. (See INDEX: “Purging
the Gas Line”
AT EACH NEW SEASON
At the start of each new grilling season you should remove
the grilling racks and check the burners, venturis, orifices
and valves for obstructions.
Spiders and insects often nest in these areas of the grill
and can disrupt air flow, causing damage to the grill and
personal injury.
Also, check all hoses and fittings for damage, abrasion,
wear and tear.
PRE-GRILL CHECKLIST ...continued
BEFORE EACH USE
Before any use, always make sure that:
•... you do not smell gas before you light the grill. If you
do smell gas, shut everything off and have a qualified
plumber check for leaks.
•… the cooking area is free and clear of any combustibles,
besides your food, that might ignite.
•… the control knobs turn freely.
•… if you are using a portable propane cylinder, it
is securely connected and leak tested. (See INDEX:

•… wind is not blowing too strongly or blowing on the
back of grill.
LIGHTING YOUR GRILL
WARNING
1. Never attempt to light a burner if you smell gas.
2. Always keep the lid open when lighting your grill.
3. Releasing fuel into a closed grill before lighting will increase the risk of explosion, property damage, personal
injury or death.
4. 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.
5. YOU NEVER LEAVE THE GRILL UNATTENDED WHILE THE GRILL IS LIT.
ELECTRIC IGNITION
For the Rotisserie Burner:
Before proceeding, make sure you have completed the
“Before Each Use” checklist.
The rotisserie burner features a thermocouple sensor with
a safety valve that automatically shuts off the flow of gas if
the burner goes out. (See INDEX: “Windy Conditions” for
tips on how to prevent burner blow out)
Follow these steps to light any of the burners on your grill:
First, make sure all burner control knobs are set to OFF.
For the Main Brass
Burner or Trident ™
Burner:
Push and hold the control
knob in for 5-7 seconds,
allowing the igniter to heat
up. Then rotate the knob
to “LITE”. After ignition,
set the knob to the desired
heat setting.
To light the rotisserie burner, push and hold the control
knob in for 5-7seconds and then turn the knob to the
“LITE” position.
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 re-light the
burner.

BASIC GRILLING
PRE-HEATING
TYPES OF COOKING
Pre-heating your grill every time you use it is extremely
important. Pre-heating allows the briquettes to properly
heat up, providing more even and more consistent cooking
results.
The main brass burners and the Trident ™ burner in your
Lynx grill are capable of creating a range of heat intensities.
By varying the heat output, the number of burners used
and the position of the hood, you can create either direct
or indirect heat or a combination of both and develop a
wide variety of succulent recipes. There are two basic types
of grilling in an outdoor grill... Direct Heat and Indirect Heat
Pre-heat your grill by igniting all main burners, including the
Trident ™ burner, and setting them to “HI”.
Then close the hood and allow the grill to heat for 10
to 15 minutes, the hood thermometer should reach
approximately 450°. Once you’ve reached your desired pre-heat temperature, turn off the burners that you
won’t be using to cook your food. Remember, surface
temperature can be up to 200° higher.
WARNING!
DO NOT LEAVE THE GRILL UNATTENDED
DURING THE PRE-HEAT CYCLE OR AT ANY
TIME WHILE THE GRILL IS IN USE.
PRE-HEATING FOR MORE THAN 10 - 15
MINUTES MAY OVERHEAT THE GRILL, CAUSING
DAMAGE TO THE GRILL.
Direct Heat
Direct heat cooking occurs when foods are placed
directly over the heat source. This form of heat is known as
“radiant” heat because the heat radiates directly from the
source to the food.
Direct heat is a must when you want to sear the outside of
your food to seal in flavor. Lynx Trident ™ Burners provide
the heat necessary to sear foods and seal in flavor.
Indirect Heat
Indirect heat cooking occurs when the food is not
close to the heat source. Heat reaches the food via air
movement within the cooking area. This form of heat is
known as “convection” heat.
Indirect, or “convection” cooking is achieved by placing
the food on one side of the grill and igniting burners on the
other side. You leave the burner below the food “OFF”.
You should keep the hood closed as much as possible
during this type of cooking to maintain even heat around
the food. You regulate the heat by adjusting the burner,
using the hood thermometer to monitor the temperature.
CARE & USE/INSTALLATION

27
USING THE TRIDENT ™ BURNER
Never place food over a Trident ™ burner before it is fully
pre-heated because food particles and grease dripping
onto a cold Trident ™ burner can clog the tiny ports and
damage the burner.
For the same reason you should minimize water spills on
the Trident ™ burner and should not use water to control
flare-ups. Take special care to minimize dropping any
liquids on the Trident ™ burner while cleaning the cooking
grids.
HOW TO SEAR
Professional restaurant chefs rely on a different type of heat
... infrared heat ... to create a higher searing temperature
than what standard burners can achieve. So Lynx provides
the Trident ™ infrared burner.
Infrared burners work by focusing the gas flame through a
ceramic element filled with tiny holes.
Searing locks in flavor and juices while allowing the food’s
outer surface to absorb smoke and food-born aromas
produced when drippings are vaporized by the burner.
The result is a restaurant-style finish … crisp, flavorful
outside with a tender, juicy inside.
While the brass burners in your grill are capable of producing
searing heat, the Trident ™ infrared burner is specifically
designed for this purpose.
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
These holes focus the flame on the surface of the element,
creating an intense heat much higher than that of a
standard brass burner. It allows you to sear your food more
quickly while leaving the inside rare, if desired.
The Trident ™ burner, with its advanced components,
requires particular attention to lighting, usage and cleaning
guidelines. See INDEX: “Trident ™ Burner” for further
details.
Pre-Heating the Trident ™ Burner
Always preheat the entire grill before cooking to achieve
consistent, successful results. (See INDEX: “Preheating” for
further details.)
If the grill is already hot from cooking you should still
pre-heat the Trident ™ burner for 2-3 minutes, or
until it glows red.
28
|
CARE & USE/INSTALLATION
Lynx grill cooking grids are heavy duty.
Dropping them on the Trident ™ Burner will
damage the burner. Such damage is not
covered by the product warranty and will cause
a fire, burns or other personal injury.
TRIDENT™ BURNER CLEANING
It’s easy to keep your Trident ™ Burner
operating at peak performance. Just run it on
“HI” with the hood open for 5 minutes after
each use to burn away any food particles or
drippings.
Any ash accumulation on the burner screen
can be removed with a light brush (like a paint
brush) or vacuum … BUT WAIT UNTIL THE
BURNER IS COOL! Never use water.
USING THE ROTISSERIE BURNER
Rotisserie
cooking provides
an even delivery of
heat to your foods.
It has no equal.
The constant rotation not only cooks foods evenly, it also
self bastes. As juices rise to the surface of the food, they
naturally flow around it as it rotates. And, by moving the
burner out from beneath the food, you avoid scorching
flare-ups.
Your foods will be more evenly
cooked, more tender and juicier
when slow-roasted on a Lynx’s
rotisserie.
The Spit Rod & Forks
The rotisserie can handle large food items up to 50 lbs. You
should prepare any item and first mount it on the skewer.
Swing the warming rack up and out of the way. It will rest in
place.
The Lynx rotisserie system consists of four main parts, the
motor, the skewer, the forks and
the infrared burner.
The Motor
Install the motor by sliding it into
one of the slots shown here. Use
the top slot for small foods or
fast cooking and the lower slot for large foods and slower
cooking.
Then mount the skewer on the grill before lighting the rotisserie infrared burner. Lighting the burner first could result
in burning your hands while trying to mount the skewer on
the grill.
It’s okay to remove the grill racks and even the briquette
trays to make room for large foods on the skewer.
Plug the motor power cord into the
Rotisserie
motor and into the built-in power
Motor Mount
outlet on the rear left panel. Your
grill must be plugged into an AC power supply for the
rotisserie to work.
Place a basting pan in the grill to prevent food
accumulations on the briquettes and burners. But BE SURE
YOU REMOVE IT before using any of the other burners.
The location of the rotisserie burner makes it more
susceptible to strong wind conditions (more so than the
main grill burners).
For this reason it features a safety valve that automatically
closes any time the rotisserie burner is not properly lit …
like if it were to extinguish in windy conditions. During
windy conditions, it’s best to keep the lid closed and to
periodically check the burner.
To load the skewer, slide one of the forks onto the skewer.
Push the skewer through the center of the food, then slide
the second fork onto the skewer. Center the food to be
cooked on the skewer then push the forks firmly together.
Tighten the thumb screws (use pliers if necessary). You
should wrap any loose, dangling pieces of food (like wings)
with butcher’s string (never use nylon or plastic string).
With the food secured to the skewer slowly roll the skewer
in the palms of your hands to check for balance. It should
rotate smoothly. If you find it has a heavy side, adjust where
the skewer pierces the meat. An unbalanced skewer will
cause uneven rotation and uneven cooking. It’s normal for
the skewer to flex with large foods.
When the rotisserie is not in use the rotisserie motor should
be stored in a cool dry location.

serie lighting procedure. (See INDEX: “Rotisserie Burner,

The notched portion of the skewer must rest on the rollers
for proper operation.
Once lit, the rotisserie burner should reach cooking
temperatures in about 1 minute. It will glow evenly across
its surface in about 5 minutes.

USING THE SMOKER BOX
Professional chefs far and wide set their restaurant cuisine
apart by cooking
over wood fires.
Imparting a delicate
hint of wood smoke
enhances food,
raising your culinary
skills to the next
level.
Your new grill comes
with the new Lynx
Smoker Set with handle. This oval shaped Lynx Smoker
box can be placed anywhere on the grates directly over
any burner. The unique handle and interlock mechanism
is designed to allow quick removal or refilling of the Lynx
smoker box.
The smoker box is designed with special draft and flow
through for maximum smoke. It is constructed of 304 Heavy
Gauge Stainless Steel for years of use.
The Lynx Smoker box can be used with smoker pellets
or wood chips. Whether using wood chips or pellets, we
recommend using approximately 3 oz. of either material.
There is no need for presoaking, just fill the smoker box.
30
|
CARE & USE/INSTALLATION
Now use the handle to place
the smoker box directly on
the hot grates. Don’t forget
to remove the smoker handle
before closing the grill lid.
Smoke occurs at approximately
575 degrees F. at the grilling
surface. Set the burner knob to medium/medium low to
achieve this temperature. Use the handle to move or refill
the smoker box. Control the smoking by adjusting the heat
and being careful not to adjust it too high.
For best results keep the lid closed. The best absorption
of smoke flavor occurs early in the cooking process. When
finished with smoking, allow the smoker box to cool and
dispose of remnants.
CAUTION
Handle the smoker box with care. The cover
becomes extremely hot when in use. Use sturdy,
properly insulated gloves or dry pot holders.
CLEANING YOUR LYNX GRILL (Including Required Maintenance)
STAINLESS STEEL
Lynx products are known for their attractive appearance.
We achieve this by selecting only the finest grades of
stainless steel and applying exacting workmanship.
In order to maintain this attractive appearance over the life
of the grill it is important to take the following steps:
•After each use wipe down the exterior of the grill to
remove grease and splatters.
•Be sure to follow the cleaning instructions for keeping the
grates and burners clean and ready for use.
•Use a commercially available Stainless Steel cleaner* to
clean and polish the exterior surfaces.
Doing these things on a regular basis minimizes the amount
of effort required.
Part of the appeal of your Lynx Grill is the fine grain finish.
When removing stubborn stains:
•Do not use metallic abrasives and always rub in the
direction of the grain.
surface rust to appear and even create some pitting if left
on the product.
Here are a few tips to avoid this:
•Regularly wipe down the exterior surfaces with a damp
cloth. (Micro fiber cloths such as Ecloth perform very
well).
•Allow the surfaces to dry before installing the cover. Do
not cover a damp grill.
•In extreme environments apply a rust inhibitor which
leaves a microscopic protective layer on the grill.
Products that provide a layer of vapor corrosion inhibitors
(VpCI™) protect the surface very well.
•For seasonal storage use the product referred to above,
ensure the grill is dry and then cover and secure the
cover to minimize the amount of damp air getting to the
surfaces.
THE LYNX LIMITED LIFE TIME WARRANTY PROVIDES
PROTECTION AGAINST RUST THROUGH OF PARTS THAT
RENDER THE PRODUCT INOPERATIVE. IT DOES NOT
COVER OCCASIONAL SURFACE RUST OR STAINING DUE
TO ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS.
After your first use certain areas of the grill may discolor
from the intense heat given off by the burners - this is
normal and cannot be cleaned off.
For light and heavy food stains there are many different
stainless steel cleaners available.
•Some household cleaning products are not suitable for
stainless steel; be sure to read the label before using on
your Lynx Grill.
•Always use the mildest cleaning solution first, scrubbing
in the direction of the grain. Specks of grease may gather
in the grain of the stainless steel and bake on to the
surface, giving the appearance of rust.
To remove these baked-on foods use a fine to medium
grit non-metallic abrasive pad (Scotch Brite is good) in
conjunction with a stainless steel cleaner.
•Solutions used for cleaning concrete and masonry
can be very corrosive and will ‘attack’ stainless steel.
Ensure your Lynx products are well protected before
you allow the use of such chemicals near your grill.
SPECIAL NOTE FOR LOCATIONS NEAR POOLS AND
COASTAL AREAS:
The 304 stainless steel material used in the construction of
a Lynx Grill is highly rust resistant, however, chlorine in the
air from swimming pools or the salt from sea air may cause
DRIP TRAY
The drip tray should be cleaned after each use. After the
grill is completely cool, remove the drip tray by pulling it
out until it stops, then lifting the front edge until the drip
tray comes free.
Clean it with hot soapy water or an oven-style
cleaning product and re-install. When using an oven-style
cleaning product be sure to carefully follow the
manufacturer’s instructions. Many of these cleaners are
toxic and can damage the stainless steel finish if not used
properly.
Also, check the tray after rain. If you’ve left the grill
uncovered, you may need to remove the drip tray drain
plug to drain the water from the tray. The drain plug can be
removed with a flat-head screwdriver.

To Remove Brass Burners:
WARNING
DO NOT ALLOW EXCESS GREASE OR LIQUIDS
TO ACCUMULATE IN THE DRIP TRAY AS THIS
MAY CREATE A FIRE HAZARD.
NEVER USE GRILL WITHOUT DRIP TRAY PROPERLY INSTALLED.
Remove the grill racks and briquette trays.
Lift the burner up until the legs exit the frame.
Then pull to the rear of the grill so the burner head comes
off the brass orifice at the front.
Angle the burner sideways and lift it out.
Be careful not to change the air shutter position.
To Clean the Brass Burner:
GRILLING RACKS
The easiest way to clean the grill racks is to do so immediately after turning off the burners, while they are still
hot. Wearing a long BBQ mitt to protect your hand from
steam, dip a brass bristle brush in hot water and scrub
the grill rack. Dip the brush frequently because the steam
helps remove baked-on foods.
CERAMIC BRIQUETTES
The ceramic briquettes normally burn off any accumulated
food drippings. But you may occasionally experience
larger spills that don’t burn off under normal use.
When this happens, let the grill cool completely. Remove
the racks and then the briquette trays by lifting the front
edge and pulling them toward you.
Flip the trays over and put them
back in place over the burner.
Light the burners and set them
to “HI” for 5 - 10 minutes to
burn the briquettes clean. Any
remaining food items can be
brushed off using a soft brush.
Be sure the trays have completely
cooled before reinstalling them.
Replacement briquette trays can be ordered from Lynx or
from your dealer.
MAIN BRASS BURNERS
Make sure the grill is completely cool before proceeding.
Ensure that the gas supply is off and all control knobs are
in the “OFF” position.

CARE & USE/INSTALLATION
To maximize grill performance, clean the exterior of the
burner with a wire brush. Remove stubborn scale with a
metal scraper.
Clear any clogged ports with a 3/32 drill bit or a firm wire
of the similar diameter. Never use a wooden toothpick as
it may break off and clog the port.
Shake out any debris through the air shutter.
Use a flashlight to inspect the burner inlet to ensure it is
not blocked. If obstructions can be seen, clean it with a
paper clip or a pipe cleaner.

POTENTIAL PROBLEMS
GRILL WON’T LIGHT
First, confirm that the grill is getting electricity by turning
on the lights, then:
Check The Igniters
Your Lynx grill uses an electric ignition system that does not
spark. Instead, the igniters should glow constantly when a
control knob is pushed in.
•Ensure that all burner controls are set to OFF.
If match lighting doesn’t work, re-check fuel connections for
leaks and ensure the supply is of the correct type and is of
adequate pressure. (See INDEX: “Leak Test Procedure” for
further details.)
If the burner will light with a match, then the igniter may
not be functioning correctly. Call for service.
If the burner will not match light, and you know you are
getting gas, wait for any gas to dissipate and remove the
burner and check it for blockages.
•Remove the cooking grates and briquette trays.
•Watch an igniter as you push in and hold the
corresponding control knob. You will need either a small
mirror or shiny metal object to see the igniter under its
cover.
(Be sure you push in the correct control knob and keep
SMELL OF GAS WHILE COOKING
IF YOU SMELL GAS WHILE THE GRILL IS OPERATING,
IMMEDIATELY TURN OFF ALL BURNERS AND SHUT OFF
THE MAIN FUEL SUPPLY.
•Perform a leak test (See INDEX: “Leak Test Procedure”
for further details.)
•Check for blockages (See INDEX: “Clean the Brass

•Check the remaining igniters. If igniters don’t glow,
proceed with troubleshooting or match-light the burner.
Check The Burners
If the igniters are working check to see if gas is reaching the
burners by attempting to match light a burner.
BE CAREFUL! IF THE BURNER FAILS TO IGNITE, WAIT
5 MINUTES BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO IGNITE OTHER
BURNERS! (See INDEX: “Match Lighting” for further
details.)
Gas Collector
Hood
Hot
Surface
Igniter
A yellow flame on the main burners indicates a lack of air.
But, if the air around the grill is dusty or if heavy grease is
present, some orange tips on the burner flame are normal.
•Adjust The Air Shutter
To adjust for insufficient air, adjust the air shutter. (See
INDEX: “Air Shutter Adjustment” for further details.)
LOW OR INSUFFICIENT HEAT
No part of the grill should ever be lined with aluminum foil.
Doing so will interfere with airflow and can cause a low heat
condition.
Ensure that you’ve preheated the main burners for at least
10 to 15 minutes with the hood closed and the Trident ™
burner for 3 minutes.
Proper leveling during installation is critical. A grill that
is out of level will cause erratic burner combustion and
inefficient, uneven heating. A carpenter’s spirit level
should be used to level the grill both front-to-back and
side-to-side.
If the low heat problem persists:
•Check the gas supply line sizing requirements.
•Check the gas supply line for kinks or damage.
34
|
CARE & USE/INSTALLATION
POTENTIAL PROBLEMS ...continued
REPLACE any damaged supply lines.
•Check the Regulator
Make sure that the regulator & hose assembly is the one
designed for and supplied with your Lynx grill and that it
is correctly set up for the type of fuel you are using. (See
INDEX: “Regulator Conversion” for further details.)
The hose and regulator provided by Lynx must be used if
your grill is set-up for a portable LP Gas Cylinder.
Check that there is no physical pressure being applied to
the regulator attached to the back of the grill. The regulator
contains a flexible diaphragm and should not be allowed to
touch the grill body or its surroundings.
•Check for Obstructions
Ensure that the burners and drip tray are clean and free
from obstructions.
LP (Propane) units:
•Is the cylinder almost empty?
Natural gas inlet pressure should be at least 5” W.C. and
manifold pressure not less than 4” W.C. under full load
(with all burners on.)
•Check burners for blockages.
•Check flame characteristics. (See INDEX: “Flame, Correct
Size” )
•Clean or adjust air shutter (See INDEX: “Air Shutter
Adjustment.”
WIND HITTING GRILL
Wind hitting the grill while in use, especially winds blowing
into or across the hood gap from behind, can cause poor
performance and in some cases can cause the control panel
to get dangerously hot.
Steady or gusty winds can prevent the normal exhaust of
hot gases. Locate your grill away from prevailing winds and
avoid grilling in windy conditions.
Almost-empty cylinders may not have sufficient pressure
to run the burners at high heat.
•Have the line pressure checked by a qualified technician
(See INDEX: “Gas Requirements” for further details.)
•Flow Limiting Device
Improper lighting procedures may have activated the LP
cylinder’s flow control device, reducing the heat output.
To reset the flow control:
•Shut off all burner controls and close the LP cylinder
valve.
•Wait 30 seconds and, very slowly, reopen the cylinder
valve.
•Wait a few seconds and relite a burner.
Bulk LP cylinder users:
Bulk LP cylinder lines must be properly regulated.
Ensure that you are using a 4/11 appliance regulator
supplied by Lynx and converted to LP gas. Also ensure that
you do not have more than one regulator in line.
Natural Gas units:
•Supply Line
Ensure that the supply line is at least 3/4” inside diameter
or 1” outside diameter.
•Check line pressure

POTENTIAL PROBLEMS ...continued
BURNER GOES OUT
•Location
First determine if the problem is being caused by location.
If the grill is subject to high winds, reposition it to provide
some protection.
•Check the Flame
Check the gas supply and flame characteristics. (See INDEX: “Flame, Correct Size”)
•Burners Seated
Check to ensure that the burners are correctly positioned
in the grill. (See INDEX: “Burner Placement” for further
details.)
Correctly-installed burners should be seated firmly and
level with no side-to-side movement.
BURNER GOES OUT ONLY WHEN SET TO “LOW”
The valves on the grill feature an adjustable low setting.
Fluctuations in gas pressure, gas conversion and even in
the quality of the gas itself may affect burner performance
at the “LOW” setting. It could be either too high or too
low. (See INDEX: “Burner Adjustment” for further details.)

INSULATED JACKET INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
IMPORTANT: Before you build the frame, you must take into consideration the total weight
of the liner, grill and any finishing materials.
Refer to the table below for the proper framing
dimensions for the insulation jacket. Determine the entry
point for both the gas inlet and electricl connections. Make
the 4” square holes for gas and electrical connections (rear
or bottom access) based on your requrements. Note that
the electrical connections are located on the left side and
the gas connections are located on the right side.
A Carpenter’s “spirit level” should be used to assure that
the framing is level, both front to back and side to side.
Note: Never under any circumstance should you
install the transformer or run and quick disconnect hose
inbetween the grill and the inside of the insulating
jacket.

LINER INSTALLATION
Posititon the liner into the frame. No part of the
combustible enclosure can protrude above the top surface
or in front of the face surface of the liner. Shim the liner if
necessary.
GRILL INSTALLATION
Use the proper equipment to support he grill. Place the
grill into the liner and engage it over the liner lip across the
back and sides. The liner is designed to support the grill
without additional fasteners.
FINISHING
If desired any gap remainng between the liner and
the combustible enclosure may be filled with a
non-combustilble sealant or caulk.
4” square holes for
gas and electrial
connections both
left and right sides
(rear or bottom
access). Make these
holes in the frame
based on your
requirements.
F
1” Screws can be provided to help straighten out the
sides of the LIJ if necessary. Contact Lynx for details.
