Installation
SELECTING A LOCATION
This barbecue is for outdoor use only and should be placed in
a well-ventilated area. Take care to ensure that the minimum
clearances guidelines are followed:
Minimum clearances:
From sides: 430mm; From back: 430mm
From above (vertical): 1000mm
Keep this barbecue away from any flammable materials! This
appliance shall only be used in an above ground open-air situation
with natural ventilation, without stagnant areas, where gas leakage
and products of combustion are rapidly dispersed by wind and
natural convection. This barbecue is not designed for marine use.
Any enclosure in which the appliance is used shall comply with one
of the following:
1. An enclosure with walls on all sides, but at least one permanent
opening at ground level and no overhead cover.
2. Within a partial enclosure that includes an overhead cover and
no more than two walls.
3. Within a partial enclosure that includes an overhead cover and
more than two walls, the following shall apply:
a)
at least 25% of the total wall area is completely open and unrestricted
b)
at least 30% of the remaining wall area is open
and unrestricted
4. In the case of balconies, at least 20% of the total of the side,
back and front wall areas shall be and remain open and
unrestricted.
See following diagrams for further illustration:
OTHER PRECAUTIONS
Do not obstruct any of the ventilation openings in the barbecue
body. Should you need to change the gas cylinder, confirm that the
cylinder is off, and that there are no sources of ignition (cigarettes,
open flame, sparks, etc.) near before proceeding. Be sure to
inspect the gas hose and ensure it is free of any twisting or tension.
The hose should hang freely with no bends, folds, or kinks, which
could obstruct free flow of gas. Apart from the connection point, no
part of the hose should touch any hot barbecue parts. Inspect the
hose before use. If the hose is damaged, it must be replaced with
a hose suitable for use with LPG and meet the national standards
for the country of use. The length shall not exceed 1.5m. Should
minimum clearances not be adhered to severe flare up may be
experienced due to lack of airflow around the barbecue, thus
voiding manufacturer’s warranty.
GAS AND REGULATOR INFORMATION
This barbecue is designed for LP gas use only. Bottle sizes of 9kg
or greater are recommended for use with this barbecue. Suitable
LPG regulators must have an outlet pressure of 2.75 kPa. You must
have the proper regulator and bottle in order for the barbecue to
operate safely and efficiently. Please consult your local gas dealer
for the most suitable gas cylinders. Please note the regulator
supplied with this barbecue is of an approved type.
For more information on pipe sizing, please refer to AS5601/AG601
for details.
FIXING THE GAS REGULATOR TO THE CYLINDER
Confirm all barbecue control knobs are in the off position.
10
559544 - Masport 4 Burner - May 2012
Hand-tighten the regulator supplied with this barbecue to the gas
cylinder by screwing in an anti-clockwise direction.
DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN!
As the regulator is fitted with a soft nose, it should only be tightened
a further 1/4 turn after resistance is first felt.
LEAK TESTING
and wait one minute for any accumulated gas to clear off the
grill. Once the rightmost burner is lit, simply light the remaining
burners from right to left.
5. The “lo” position is obtained by turning the knob fully anticlockwise to the “lo” position.
6. Adjusting the control knob to your heat requirements can now
control the flame.
Note!
Perform in a well-ventilated area
Confirm all control knobs are in the off position. Detach the control
panel located on the front of the barbecue body by pulling off the
knobs and removing all retaining screws. Open the gas control valve
on the cylinder. Check for leaks by brushing a solution of ½ water
and ½ soap over all gas system joints, including all valve, hose, and
regulator connections. NEVER USE AN OPEN FLAME to test for
leaks at anytime. If bubbles form over any of the joints, there is a
leak. Turn off the gas supply and retighten all joints. Repeat test. If
bubbles form again, do not use the barbecue.
Please contact your local dealer for assistance.
LEAK TEST ANNUALLY AND WHENEVER THE GAS BOTTLE IS
REMOVED, OR REPLACED.
Operation
Warning!
Before proceeding, be certain you understand the safety
information contained in this manual
This barbecue is not designed to be used with more than
66% of the cooking area as a solid plate. Full coverage of
plates will cause excessive build-up of heat and damage the
barbecue
Note!
Before using the barbecue for the first time, the
barbecue must be lit and burning for 30 minutes on the
“lo” position.
Important!
Keep a spray bottle of soapy water near the gas supply
valve and check the connections before each use.
Warning!
1. Do not light the grill if odour of gas is present, call our
service centre.
2. It is important to ensure that all control valves,
including the gas cylinder, are turned off after use.
For manual ignition
1.Light a 90mm barbecue match and hold adjacent to the lighter
hole at the right end of the barbecue. (Fig.1)
2.Turn the right hand gas control knob to the hi position. The
burner will light from the match.
3.Once the right burner is lit, the burner next to it can be turned on
and will light off the lit burner. Repeat till all burners are alight.
Each burner can be adjusted to provide a low setting by turning the
gas control to the “lo” position.
Important!
The regulator supplied with this BBQ may incorporate
an Excess Flow Control Safety Device. The Excess
Flow Control will activate to prevent gas flow should
a regulator malfunction occur. It is important that the
BBQ operator understands that all gas valves on the
BBQ are closed in the OFF position prior to opening
the gas cylinder valve. If the BBQ valves are open prior
to opening the cylinder valve, the Excess Flow Control
will be activated and prevent the BBQ from being lit.
To reset, close the BBQ valves and gas cylinder valve,
wait for 1 minute and use correct lighting procedure as
detailed below.
PREPARATION BEFORE COOKING
To prevent foods from sticking to the cookware, please use a long
handled brush to apply a light coat of cooking or vegetable oil
before each barbequing session.
USING THE ROTARY IGNITION (RH BURNER)
1. Read instructions before lighting.
2. Turn all knobs to “OFF” then open the LP tank valve. Always
keep your face and body as far from the grill as possible when
lighting.
3. Open hood during lighting.
4. Push in and turn the rightmost gas knob in an anti-clockwise
direction to the hi position. This activates the ignition, repeat
step 4, 3-4 times, until the burner is lit. If the burner does not
light immediately, turn the gas control knob to the off position
11
559544 - Masport 4 Burner - May 2012
GRILL COOKING
The burners heat up the flame tamers underneath the grill, which
in turn heats the food on the grill. The natural juices produced
during cooking fall onto the flame tamers below and vaporise. The
subsequent rising smoke bastes the food, as it travels upwards,
imparting that unique barbecue flavour.
GRIDDLE PLATE / FLAT-FREE PLATE (where supplied)
The burners heat the griddle plate directly, which then cooks the
food on contact. These allow for the cooking of smaller items, such
as seafood, which could fall through the spaces of a grill. They
are also suitable for cooking items that require high-temperature/
short-duration cooking, such as vegetables and smaller cuts of fish.
Similarly, these can be used in exactly the same way as a griddle in
the kitchen, for searing steaks, cooking eggs, etc.
ROASTING HOOD COOKING
Barbecues equipped with a roasting hood give the option of
cooking with hood closed to form an ‘oven’ for roasting food, such
as joints of meat, whole chickens, etc.
Warning!
Cooking with the hood closed and the burners on high
creates a fire risk.
When the hood is closed, a large amount of heat is trapped inside
the barbecue. Thus, it is IMPORTANT to make sure that all the
burners are turned to the low position to prevent burning of the food
and damaging the barbecue. Avoid lifting the hood unnecessarily
as heat is lost every time the hood is opened. Use the temperature
gauge to check the heat of the barbecue. DO NOT ALLOW YOUR
BARBECUE TO OVERHEAT. A BARBECUE SHOULD NEVER BE
LEFT UNATTENDED WHILE COOKING!
WARMING RACK (LIFESTYLE ONLY)
Warming racks are a convenient way to keep cooked food warm or
to warm items such as bread rolls. Always check that your warming
rack is properly fitted before use.
ROTISSERIE COOKING (optional)
1. Carefully remove the cast iron cooking surfaces and the
warming rack from the barbecue.
2. Place the flame tamer to the centre of the barbecue body. It is
over this area that the meat will be cooked.
3. Slide one of the spit forks onto the spit rod and tighten its
thumb screw to secure it into place. Insert the pointed end of
the spit rod into the meat being cooked and slide the meat
towards the centre of the rod. Make sure the fork is fully into
the meat. Slide the other fork onto the rod, into the meat, and
tighten the thumb screw once in place. For optimal rotisserie
cooking, food must be placed securely onto the middle of the
spit rod and balanced so that the rotisserie can rotate freely
without interference from any barbecue surfaces. Any loose
sections of meat should be secured so they do not hang down
and interfere with the rotation of the spit rod.
4. Insert the pointed end of the spit rod into the motor. Lay the
other end of the spit rod onto the opposite bracket.
5. Light the barbecue.
6. Turn on the rotisserie motor to begin rotisserie cooking. The
hood has been designed so that it may be closed during
rotisserie cooking.
7. Always cook foods on the lowest flame setting to avoid burning
or overcooking.
8. DO NOT ALLOW YOUR BARBECUE TO OVERHEAT. A
BARBECUE SHOULD NEVER BE LEFT UNATTENDED WHILE
COOKING!
9. If cooking with rotisserie using indirect heat (not using burners
directly under meat - oven style cooking), a baking dish (not
supplied) can be placed under the food to catch fats and
drippings.
12
559544 - Masport 4 Burner - May 2012
FLARE-UP CONTROL
Flare-ups occur when meat is barbecued, and its fats and juices
fall upon the flame tamers. The smoke from some flare-up helps
give cooked meat its barbecued flavour, but excessive flare-up will
result in meat being burned. To control flare-up, it is advisable to
trim away excess fat from meat and poultry before grilling. Also, the
burners should always be placed on the low setting during cooking.
Finally, extinguish flare-up by applying baking soda or salt directly
onto the flame tamer. Always protect your hands when handling
anything near the cooking surface of the barbecue.
If a fat fire should occur in the drip tray, turn all knobs to the off
position, turn off the gas at the bottle, and wait for the fire to go out.
Do not pull out the drip tray or douse with water.
END OF THE COOKING SESSION
After each cooking session, turn the BBQ burners to the “HIGH”
position and burn off for 5 minutes. This procedure will burn off food
residue, thus making cleaning easier.
TURNING OFF YOUR BARBECUE
When you have finished using your barbecue, turn off the gas at
the bottle and turn all the control valves fully clockwise to the “OFF”
position. Wait until the barbecue is sufficiently cool before replacing
the barbecue lid or closing its hood. Once cooled, a protective
cover should always be fitted to the barbecue to protect your
investment from the elements when not in use.
(Not supplied, refer pg 9 for cover part number).
Care and Maintenance
Regularly clean your barbecue between uses and especially
after extended periods of storage. Ensure the barbecue and its
components are sufficiently cool before cleaning. Do not leave the
barbecue exposed to outside weather conditions or stored in damp,
moist areas.
•
•
Never douse the barbecue with water when its surfaces are
hot.
Never handle hot parts with unprotected hands.

is taken to make them as weather proof as possible, we cannot
accept responsibility for rust occurring on exposed metal parts
unless this is a result of faulty manufacture or parts.
In order to extend the life and maintain the condition of your
barbecue, we strongly recommend that the unit is covered when
not in use, especially during the winter months.
STAINLESS STEEL CARE AND CLEANING ADVICE
Cleanliness and stainless steel are closely related. Stainless steel
performs best when clean - cleanliness is essential for maximum
resistance to corrosion and to maintain the good looks and life of
your BBQ.

TYPES OF SURFACE CONTAMINANTS
Fingerprints and Stains
Fingerprints and mild stains resulting from normal use are the most
common surface contaminates. They can be removed with a glass
cleaner or with a soft rag. This should be followed by a thorough
warm water rinse.
Dirt
Like any surface that is exposed to the environment especially in
coastal areas, stainless steel can get dirty. Cleaning with warm
water with or without a gentle detergent is sufficient. Next in
order are mild non-scratching abrasive powders such as typical
household cleaners. These can be used with warm water, bristle
brushes, sponges, or clean cloths. Carbon steel brushes or steel
wool should be avoided as they may leave particles embedded on
the surface which can lead to RUSTING. Cleaning should always be
followed by rinsing in clean hot water.
Grease
Grease may soil stainless steel surfaces in food preparation. These
soils may be mildly corrosive if left or may not allow the surface
to maintain passivity, and so regular removal is a necessity for the
appearance.
TYPES OF CLEANERS AND METHODS
Consider the possibility of scratching and the potential for postcleaning corrosion caused by incompletely removed cleaners. Avoid
using abrasive cleaners unless absolutely necessary.
Clean Water and Wipe
A soft cloth and clean warm water should always be the first choice
for mild stains and loose dirt and soils. A final rinse with clean
water and a dry wipe will complete the process and eliminate the
possibility of water stains.
Household Cleaners
Household cleaners fall into two categories: detergent (nonabrasive) and abrasive cleaners. Abrasive cleaners are more
effective but introduce the possibility of scratching the surface. A
neutral cleaner low in chloride is essential. The cleaning method
generally employed with these cleaners is to apply them to the
stainless surface and follow by cloth wiping in the direction of the
grain or polish lines (not across them). The cleaned surface should
be thoroughly rinsed with clean water and wiped dry with a soft
cloth if water streaking is a consideration.
CARE OF STAINLESS STEEL IN YOUR BBQ
Your BBQ features Stainless Steel components, using moderate
grade Stainless Steels. All Stainless Steel grades require a level
of care and protection to retain their appearance. Stainless Steels
are not immune to corrosion and neither are they maintenancefree, contrary to popular public perception. Even the highest
marine grades of Stainless Steel require frequent cleaning to avoid
oxidation and other corrosive issues.
Modern tastes dictate that your BBQ features Stainless Steel with a
brushed finish. This brushed finish is attained by running Stainless
Steel sheets through an abrasive process that removes the mirror
finish and leaves the brushed finish. Brushed-finish Stainless
Steel requires frequent cleaning and care, to maintain its quality of
appearance. Without adequate care it is realistic to expect that it will
show signs of corrosion in time.

owner apply a thin coat of Olive Oil to stainless steel surfaces
which should then be polished in. The Olive Oil will help greatly
in protecting the stainless steel from corrosive contaminants
and assisting removal of finger prints and other marks, keeping
the appearance of the stainless steel in new condition. The
Olive Oil coating also makes further polishing easier.
Use clean, soft cloths or sponges to clean your grill.
Carbon steel brushes or steel wool should never be used.
Do routine cleaning of exposed surfaces.
After cleaning, rinse thoroughly with water.
Cleaning with chloride-containing detergents must be avoided.
On polished finishes, rubbing or wiping should be done in the
direction of the polish lines, NOT across them.
CAST IRON COOKING SURFACES
Scrub the cooking surfaces with a brass wire brush to remove food
residue. If required, wash with soap and water. After washing, dry
the cooking surfaces thoroughly and coat lightly with cooking oil to
keep the cooking surfaces from rusting.
PORCELAIN ENAMEL COOKING SURFACES
Porcelain Enamel surfaced items should be treated with care and
should not be cleaned with an abrasive cleaner or scratchy cleaning
item. Surfaces will crack or chip if hit or dropped. Porcelain Enamel
surfaces should NOT be regarded as ‘Non-stick’, use of cooking
oil is required as normal. Food will likely stick to an overheated or
un-oiled enamel surface. The surface will be more easily cleaned by
first soaking overnight.
BURNER MAINTENANCE
Provided that they are operating correctly, in normal usage, burning
off the residue after cooking will keep the burners clean. The
burners should be removed and cleaned annually, or whenever
heavy build-up is found, to ensure that there are no signs of
blockage (debris, insects) in either the burner portholes, the primary
air inlet, or the neck of the stainless steel burners. Use a pipe
cleaner to clear obstructions. When refitting the burners, be careful
to check they are positioned as follows. The neck of the burner fits
over the valve outlet, the top flaps of the gas collector boxes fit over
the top surfaces of the burners.
DRIP TRAY
After every use, check the drip tray for fat build-up. Failure to
maintain these areas could result in a fat fire or excessive flare up.
This can severely damage your barbecue and is not covered by the
warranty.
BARBECUE BODY
Warning!
Not cleaning the barbecue can pose a fire risk!
Regularly remove excess grease or fat from the barbecue body with
a soft plastic or wooden scraper. It is not necessary to remove all
the grease from the body. If you need to clean fully, use hot soapy
water and a cloth, or nylon-bristled brush only. Remove cooking
surfaces and burners before full cleaning. Do not immerse the gas
controls or manifold in water. Check burner operation after carefully
refitting into body.
FIXINGS
All screws and bolts, etc. should be checked and tightened on a
regular basis.
Stainless steel is definitely not a maintenance-free material.
Cleanliness and Stainless Steel are closely related.
The cleaner stainless steel can be kept while in storage or during
use, the greater the assurance of optimum corrosion resistance. In
order to maintain the good looks and life of your BBQ, follow these
summary tips on the care of stainless steel:
• When new or when cleaned and dried, we recommend the

To protect your investment it is recommended that BBQs are
protected by a suitable BBQ cover. But please note that prior
to using a protective cover, the BBQ should always be cool,
cleaned of any surface contaminant or dirt and be thoroughly
dry. Failure to follow this information can lead to a BBQ
cover being a corrosion breeder rather than a protective tool.
Check your barbecue every few weeks, especially if wasps/
snails are noticed nearby.

STORAGE
Store your barbecue in a cool dry place. Cover the burners
with aluminium foil in order to prevent insects or other debris
from collecting in burner holes. A protective cover should
always be fitted to the barbecue to protect your investment
from the elements when not in use. If the barbecue is to be
stored indoors, the gas bottle must be disconnected and left
outside. The gas bottle should always be stored outside, in
a dry, well-ventilated area, away from any sources of heat or
ignition. Do not let children tamper with the bottle.
