Safety Reminders
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
•
•
Installation of grill must conform with local codes, or in absence of local codes, with National Fuel Gas Code, NFPA
54 / ANSI Z223.1-latest edition. Handling of LP tanks
must conform to NFPA / ANSI 58-latest edition.
Do not install or use grill within 36” of combustible materials from back and sides of grill. Grill shall not be located
under unprotected overhead (enclosed carport, garage,
porch, patio) made of combustible construction.
•
Grill is for outdoor use only. Grill should be operated
in a well-ventilated space. Never operate in enclosed
space, garage or building. Your grill is not intended to be
installed in or on recreational vehicles and/or boats.
•
Valve/hose/regulator supplied with grill must be used.
Replacement valve/hose/regulator must be those supplied
by Evo.
•
Carefully follow instructions in assembly manual for attaching regulator to LP tank.
•
Purging: Do not release liquid propane (LP) fuel into
atmosphere. This is a dangerous practice. If it is necessary to remove fuel from LP gas tank, please call local fire
department for assistance.
WARNING
Carefully follow instruction in assembly manual and this
booklet for proper assembly and gas leak testing of your
grill. Do not use grill until leak checked. If leak is detected
at anytime, it must be stopped and corrected before using
grill further.
•
Grill must not have any obstructions in the venturi-orifice
air inlet area.
•
Visually inspect hose before each use of grill. If there is
excessive abrasion or wear, or if the hose is cut, it must
be replaced prior to grill operation.
•
Only use valve/hose/regulator that was supplied by Evo
with the purchase of your grill.
•
Follow lighting and control instructions as described in the
Use & Care section of this manual.
•
VERY IMPORTANT: Never attempt to place any other
cooking utensils (skillets, pots, pans) directly on the burners. Only the Evo cooking grill surface is to be placed
over the burners. Only use grill with the supplied grill
cooking surface. Buildup of non-ignited gas under other
utensils is very dangerous.
WARNING
Do not attempt to put other cooking utensils (skillets, pots,
pans) directly on the burners.
When grill is not in use, turn off both control knobs and turn
tank off.
•
Grill cooking area should be kept clear and free from
combustible materials, gasoline and other flammable
vapors and liquids. Do not obstruct flow of combustion
and ventilation air. Keep ventilation openings of LP gas
tank enclosure free and clear from debris. Visually check
burner flames on regular basis.

Assembling Your Evo Grill
Leg Assembly To Burner Unit
1.
Stand completed leg assembly in an upright position with
the control panel facing forward.
2.
Place burner unit over leg assembly with control panel
centered between front legs with right and left wheels on
each side.
3.
Gently lower skirt onto leg assembly making sure the upper tab of each leg rests outside the burner unit skirt.
4.
Allow the skirt to gently slide into the vertically angled
mounting channels of each leg.
5.
Make sure the mounting hole on the skirt is positioned
inside the tab of each leg.
Some parts may contain sharp edges.
Wear protective gloves as necessary.
It will be necessary to engage burner unit skirt to leg
assembly by using a hammer against a small block of
wood and lightly tapping the skirt into the channel of
each leg tab.
The leg tab will slide over the exposed rivet head
located below the first mounting hole of each leg.
When the leg tab is properly installed, the rivet head
will be under the tab and no longer in view.
6.
Position the burner unit skirt so the mounting hole in each
leg tab is visually aligned outside the mounting hole of
the skirt.
7.
Assemble leg to the burner unit using philips screw (40),
and nyloc hex nut (41).
8.
Use 7/16” open-end wrench and phillips screwdriver
tools to fasten the legs to burner unit.
Burner Unit Skirt goes to
inside of Leg Tab on all
three legs

Assembling Your Evo Grill
Some parts may contain sharp edges.
Wear protective gloves as necessary.
Drip Pan To Burner Unit
1.
Lower drip pan over burner skirt with the round clean-out
hole of drip pan positioned on the left side of the control
panel. The three detent clips and waste container rails
must be facing downward.
2.
Rest the drip pan on the three support brackets which
are riveted to the burner skirt
3.
Position the three detent clips just before each support
bracket.
4.
Grasp the drip pan with both hands across the diameter
and firmly rotate the pan to engage each detent clip onto
each of the three support brackets.
5.
To remove drip pan, reverse the process of installation by
firmly rotating the drip pan counter clockwise.
NOTE:
Because drip pan detent clips are made of a stainless steel spring material, they are rigid when new
and it may be necessary to lightly pry each detent
clip from its mounting position in order to remove
the drip pan. Over time, as the clips are engaged and
disengaged, they will become easier to remove and install
with a firm rotation of the drip pan.
Always make sure waste tray is located on left
side of grill to allow drip pan detent clips to
properly engage the support brackets.
Cooking Surface To Burner Unit
1.
Install cooking surface to burner unit by centering locating
tab over burner skirt.
2.

Grill Maintenance, Cooking Techniques, and Recipes
Grill Maintenance
Regular cleaning and care for your Evo flat-top cooking surface will keep your grill looking and functioning it’s best.
The cook surface is coated with a nickel finish that will not melt, stick to food, burn, crack, chip off or absorb odors. It is
designed to be ‘seasoned’ with a fine layer of vegetable or cooking oil on its surface. This oil further helps to prevent sticking
and makes cooking easier.
Caring for Evo’s cook surface is much like maintaining cast iron cookware. When the surface requires cleaning, there are
a few basic cleaning techniques to use. For quick and routine cleaning between preparations, a metal spatula works for
removing the majority of surface debris. For tougher areas or where sugars glaze the cook surface, pour a small amount of
warm water on the soiled surface while the grill is warm and scrape the debris away with the spatula. It is also possible to use
a wire brush to remove sugars or other debris that glaze the cook surface. Heat the cook-surface to a high temperature and
allow the sticky debris to become brittle. Once the debris is brittle, use the wire brush to brush it away. After brushing you will
want to oil the cook-surface again before cooking. For griddle cooking you will want the cook-surface to be completely free of
any debris that might otherwise discolor or impart unwanted flavors.
For griddle cooking you should condition the cook surface with the grill cleaning kit supplied with your Evo grill. The grill
cleaning kit contains a professional 3M brand grill screen handle, grill screens, and grill polishing pad. Use the polishing pad
after the grill screen to achieve an ultra clean, smooth cooking surface for the most delicate foods and applications.
To use a grill screen: Place one gray polishing pad between the grill handle base and one grill screen, so the grill screen
makes direct contact with the cooking surface. Pour a small amount of vegetable oil on the cook surface and scrub the
surface in a circular motion. The gray polishing pad allows excess oil to be absorbed and also helps prevent the screen from
getting clogged with debris. When finished scrubbing, wipe the surface down with a paper towel or cotton terrycloth.
The drip pan located just below the cook surface is designed to catch food debris and drippings from the cook surface. We
recommend cleaning the drip pan after your grill has cooled to prevent the possibility of touching hot adjunct surfaces. The drip
pan is easy to wipe out with soap and water using a kitchen sponge. For added convenience, a removable stainless waste try
is mounted under the left hand side of the drip pan and can be easily washed by hand or in a dishwasher. Be sure to empty
the waste tray after every use.
All of the stainless steel components on your grill can be easily polished using a stainless steel cleaner/polish. The product we
recommend is called “Sheila Shine” and is a commercial product normally available from industrial restaurant supply houses.
Sheila Shine can be purchased from the Evo web site along with replacement grill polishing pads. The Evo web site address
is: htpp://www.evoamerica.com.com
Cooking Techniques
Stove Top Cooking and Heat Zones
You can use Evo’s cook surface similar to the burners on your kitchen stove top. Adjust Evo’s burners to control the
temperatures of the cook surface “heat zones.” Evo’s circular grill top is divided into two distinct zones. The center control
panel knob controls the “inner heat zone,” which is also the inner circle of the cook surface. The outer control panel knob
controls the “outer heat zone,” which is the outer circle of the cook surface. Because the cook surface is made of heavy steel,
it takes 5-8 minutes from a cold start to completely heat the surface. With a pre-heated cook surface, if you adjust one of the
burners, you will have to wait momentarily before the heat zone adjusts to temperature. However, if the heat zones are set to
different temperatures you can move a pot or pan from one zone to the other and instantly change the cooking temperature
beneath your cookware.
Oiling the Cook Surface
A hand pump spray bottle or a squirt bottle filled with cooking oil is perfect for applying an even, thin coat of oil on the cook
surface. Another way to oil the cook surface is with an inexpensive terrycloth cotton towel that has been doused with cooking
oil. When the cook surface is hot, hold the oiled towel with a pair of tongs to prevent being burned. Having cooking oil readily
available allows you to oil the grill easily and quickly at any time.

Cooking Meats
Meats are perfect to sear, roast or braise on the grill. Searing and Roasting techniques are described in more detail below.
Braising requires a tightly covered pot or pan placed on the grill surface. Braise as you would for a stove-top braising recipe,
adjusting the burners to control the cook surface temperature. Meats can also be sliced and put on skewers, added to a stir-fry
or used in hot sandwiches. Veal and Pork are often made into cutlets or scallopini. Create small slices that have been lightly
flattened with a meat mallet, seasoned and then dusted with flour. Scallopini and cutlets are usually seared in butter until
golden brown and served with a sauce or lemon juice and fresh parsley.
Cooking Poultry
Boneless cuts that have been flattened to an even thickness with a meat mallet cook more evenly and more quickly. Poultry
that has been prepared in this way can then be marinated, breaded or rubbed with spices before searing on the grill. Poultry
can also be roasted, braised, sautéed, fried or poached on the Evo grill. Roast as you would in your kitchen oven placing the
roast in a roasting pan with a rack and using the hood to contain the heat from the grill. To sauté, slice the meat into thin strips
and sauté, turning with a spatula directly on the cook surface. Use pots and pans for stove-top cooking techniques. Fill a pot
with oil for frying or with stock for poaching. Use a tightly covered pot or pan to braise. Small game birds such as quail are
small enough that they can be sear cooked all the way through without having to use the hood to create an oven. In the case
of duck breast, it is best to sear the skin side of the duck breast first and to continue cooking until the skin becomes crispy and
much of the fat has been rendered away. This way the duck meat won’t get over cooked before the skin is crispy.
Cooking Fish
Lean fish such as Flounder, Sole, Sea Bass, Cod, Monk Fish and Red Snapper are usually purchased in the form of fillets.
Fillets of fish are ideal to cook on the Evo grill because they are flat and will cook quickly and efficiently. Because lean fish
tends to flake apart easily, using Evo’s flat top grill makes handling and cooking fish much easier than open-flame grills. For
additional flavor and texture, you can also lightly dust the seasoned fillets with flour or use a breading mixture before searing.
Fatty Fish such as Swordfish, Tuna, Sturgeon, Striped Bass, and Salmon are usually purchased in steaks or fillets. Marinate
them, rub them with spices, or simply season with salt and pepper. Sear the fish on a lightly oiled hot cook surface till golden
brown and cooked to your desired doneness.
Searing
Sear cooking is the most common cooking technique used on the Evo flat top grill. Searing is done by placing food directly
onto the hot cook surface and allowing that food item to develop a flavorful “seared” or browned exterior. Searing imparts flavor
to food and also helps seal in natural juices. Searing can be done with vegetables, meats, fish, poultry, etc. One nice feature
of the Evo grill is its convex cooking surface. The convex shape allows fats to flow away from your food and into a drip pan.
This minimizes flavors from mixing on the cook surface and also helps cut down on fat in your food. Once the food is seared
on one side, flip to sear the other side and allow it to finish cooking. Some foods take longer to cook and will require that you
reduce the cook surface temperature to finish cooking without over cooking the exterior. With foods that take longer to cook
you can also adjust one of the two heat zones to a lower temperature and move food to the lower temperature zone after it has
been seared over the high temperature zone. The lower temperature will allow the food to continue cooking while retaining a
perfectly browned exterior. For non-stick cooking it is essential that the cook surface be hot and lightly oiled before searing,
and that you allow the food to sear before you attempt to move it with your spatula or tongs. Overall, cooking on Evo’s flat-top
cook surface does not involve the same charring of food that is typically done with an open-flame grill. Cooking with the Evo
grill involves a controlled “sear” that develops perfectly browned foods.
Using Marinades and Spice Rubs
When using spice rubs and marinades it is important to be aware of the sugar content in the recipes. If a marinade is high in
sugar you will find that when placed on a hot cook surface, the sugars will “caramelize” on the cook surface: similar to what
will happen to a pan on your stove top. Caramelized sugars are sticky and will eventually burn off, however to ensure easy
cleanup, it’s encouraged that you use oil based marinades that are low in sugars. Your cook surface will be easier to clean and
you will achieve a better quality sear on your meats, poultry, fish and vegetables.
Stir-Fry
Stir-Fry is best done with very high heat and very quickly, so it’s important to keep the food moving throughout the cooking
process. Use two spatulas to stir-fry food on the hot cook surface. The two spatula method allows you to scoop the food from
both sides at the same time and toss it together. Meats are usually cooked separately from the vegetables and then combined.
This allows the meats to brown more efficiently before mixing with the vegetables.
Toasting
Toast bread, croutons, bagels etc. Simply place the item to be toasted directly on the heated grill surface until it is browned.
Flip the item over to toast the other side. If you are making breakfast, you can toast bread, bagels or English muffins while
directly alongside preparing eggs, bacon, hash browns, and pancakes. No pots or pans are required, and you can cook
everything at the same time. You can also toast nuts, seeds, dried peppers and spices on Evo’s cook-surface.

Smoking
By placing wood chips such as alder, mesquite or apple wood directly on Evo’s hot cook surface and covering the surface with
Evo’s hood, you can quickly convert your Evo grill into a smoker. Depending on the size of the wood chips, you may want to
use the method of placing the chips into a metal container such as folded aluminum foil. At a minimum, make sure the heat
zone that comes in contact with the wood chips is hot enough to get the chips smoking. A higher temperature setting produces
more smoke and will consume the wood chips more quickly. Once the chips begin to smoke, place the food directly on the
cook surface, or for indirect heat, you can use a wire rack to locate foods above the cook surface. Using a wire rack keeps
food slightly off the surface allowing smoke and air to circulate. When placing Evo’s hood over the food and wood chips you
create “hot smoke,” since the food is being cooked and smoked simultaneously. Placing the chips onto one heat zone and the
food onto the other heat zone allows you to control the smoke and cooking temperature independently. Items that take longer
to cook, such as pork ribs, require you add more chips as the old chips burn out. When smoking ribs or other fatty foods, you
may want to fashion an aluminum foil pan underneath to speed up the cleaning process. You may also like to try using cedar
planks on the cook surface which provides an excellent rich smoke for smoking fish such as salmon.
Steaming
The process of steaming on the Evo grill involves applying water directly to the hot cook surface while you are cooking and
containing the water as it turns to steam. You can use Evo’s hood if you intend to steam everything on the cook surface,
or to set up individual steam areas we recommend using a pot cover. As an example, you may want to individually steam
vegetables, while simultaneously searing salmon.
Roasting and Baking
You can roast meats and vegetables under Evo’s hood. Use the front panel control knobs to control roasting temperature.
Meats are usually seared on all sides before roasting. Searing creates a nice presentation and adds flavor. When roasting,
place the seared meats, fish, poultry or vegetables either on a baking rack placed on the cook surface or directly on the cook
surface. We recommend a stainless steel baking rack designed for cooling cookies and cakes. Baking racks are relatively
inexpensive and can be found in the cookware department of most supermarkets or kitchen supply stores. A baking rack is
useful because it keeps the bottom-side of foods above the cook surface and allows uniform cooking. Placing food directly on
the cook-surface works best for smaller cuts of meat or foods that are only roasted for a few minutes.
Making Flatbreads, Crepes and Tortillas
Flatbreads, crepes and tortillas are easy to make and are a great accompaniment to many foods. The cook surface is ideal for
these items because it provides even heat over the entire surface.
Enjoy your Evo!
Cheers!
