Warming Rack
TIPS FOR USING THE ROTISSERIE
The warming rack of the outdoor grill has three positions.
It may be used to warm food in the high or low position, or
stowed away when not in use. The high position is further
away from the heat source while the low position is closer
to the heat source. When the warming rack is not in use, it
conveniently stows away by moving up to the top support
hooks.
• Grill model OG54 has two rotisserie burners which can
be used together, with no heat loss between burners.
• Make sure the food is evenly balanced on the spit rod.
Proper load balance will allow even cooking and
prolong the life of the rotisserie motor.
• The warming rack must be removed or in the storage
position during operation of the rotisserie.
• When using the rotisserie, always keep the hood
closed except when basting or checking the food. A
meat thermometer is recommended to verify that the
food is completely cooked.
• In sunny conditions, it may be difficult to see the flame
to verify ignition of the infrared rotisserie burner.
IMPORTANT NOTE: From the high position, the warming
rack must be removed and rotated 180° for the low
position and storage position.
The warming rack must be removed or in the storage
position during rotisserie operation.
• When not in use, the rotisserie motor must be stored in
an area protected from outdoor elements. Do not leave
it mounted on the grill.

Smoker Box
The Wolf sealed smoker box can hold your favorite liquid
or soaked wood chips to give meat a smoky flavor. The
smoker box is provided with all outdoor grills.
TO INSTALL AND USE THE SMOKER BOX
1) Remove one burner grate section and slide the remaining sections to the side inside the grill, so the center is
exposed. Remove a center half-size briquette tray
where there is no flash tube. Refer to the illustration on
page 8 for location of the flash tubes.
2) Position the smoker box in place of the briquette tray.
The smoker box will line up over the top of the burner
flame. For best results, have the smoker box centered
in the middle of the grill.
3) Open the smoker box lid, add your favorite soaked
wood chips and replace the lid. Do not overfill the
smoker box with wood chips.
4) Turn the control knob for the burner under the smoker
box on HI. Once smoking begins, turn heat down to
prevent wood chip flare-up.
5) Wear a barbecue mitt to protect hands. Replace the
burner grate section over the smoker box and place
food directly on the grate over the smoker box.
6) Every 30 to 45 minutes, slide the grate section to the
side to expose the smoker box, open the smoker box,
stir chips and add more if needed.
7) Turn food if needed. Repeat steps 5 and 6 until desired
temperature or doneness.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The smoker box may warp slightly
with heat, but will retain its original shape after it cools.
Never use the smoker box over the infrared sear
burner.

source. Turn food halfway through grilling time for even
cooking. The hood may be open or closed. Used for
steaks, chicken pieces, chops and vegetables.
HI and SEAR: Used for quick searing of meats and
vegetables.
Indirect method: Food is placed next to heated area, not
on top of it. Place food in the middle of the grill with the
outside burners on. Hood must be closed. Used for ribs,
large roasts, whole poultry and rotisserie grilling of large
roasts or poultry.
Select the grilling method best suited to the food you will
be cooking; direct, indirect or rotisserie. Refer to the Wolf
outdoor grilling guide on pages 19–21 for grilling method
recommendations.

Grilling Recommendations
TIPS FOR SUCCESSFUL GRILLING
• Never leave food unattended.
• Cooking with the hood closed will decrease cooking
time, provide an even temperature, conserve gas,
lessen flare-ups and improve flavor.
• Do not use aluminum foil. Grease trapped in the foil
may cause flare-ups.
• Trim excess fat from meats and slit the remaining fat at
two-inch increments to avoid flare-ups and curling.
Fatty meats may be cooked indirectly on lower heat
settings. Refer to grilling methods.
• When opening the hood, wear a barbecue mitt that
covers your wrist. Stand to the side of the grill and lift
the hood handle slowly.
• Allow meat to defrost in the refrigerator overnight
rather than microwaving it to help retain juices.
• Apply salt to meat only after cooking to prevent it from
drying out.
• Baste meat with barbecue sauce or other sugar-based
sauces only during the last few minutes of cooking to
prevent burning.
• Turn food only once, halfway through cooking time.
• Use a spatula or tongs to turn meat instead of piercing
with a prong to prevent juices from escaping.
• Brush vegetables, lean cuts of meat, skinless poultry,
fish and seafood with oil to prevent sticking.
• If using bamboo skewers, soak the skewers in cold
water for 30 minutes before cooking time.
• To burn off grease drippings after cooking, operate the
grill on high for five minutes. When the grill cools down,
remove and clean the drip tray.
• When deep fat frying, be sure the pan is large enough
to accommodate the food without overflowing when fat
begins to bubble. Heat fat slowly. Never leave a deep
fat fryer unattended. Avoid deep fat frying moist or
frost-covered foods. Foods with a high water content
may cause the hot fat to spatter. Use a thermometer to
avoid heating the fat above the flash point.

INTERIOR LIGHT BULB REPLACEMENT
For replacement, outdoor gas grills require 10W, type
G4 halogen bulbs available at hardware stores or through
your authorized Wolf dealer. For local dealer information,
visit the find a showroom section of our website,
wolfappliance.com.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Use a paper towel when handling the
replacement halogen bulb to keep oil on fingers from
touching the bulb. Failure to do this will shorten the life of
the bulb.
1) Unplug the grill from the electrical outlet and allow the
halogen bulb to cool before replacing.
2) Remove the light cover lens by pushing in on one of
the side retaining brackets with a screwdriver. Remove
the old halogen bulb by pulling it straight out of the
socket without twisting the bulb.
3) Using a paper towel to handle the new halogen bulb,
insert the bulb into the socket. Place the light cover
lens back onto the light assembly.
Use caution when handling light bulbs. Halogen bulbs
get hot instantly and adjacent parts may retain heat.

Care Recommendations
STAINLESS STEEL EXTERIOR
GENERAL CLEANING
Outdoor grills, modules and grill carts.
Grill interior.
• Never clean the stainless steel exterior when it is hot.
After the initial grilling, certain areas of the outdoor
product may discolor. This is a normal discoloration
caused by the intense heat given off by the burners.
• Turn all grill burners (including sear) on HI. Do not turn
on the rotisserie. Let the grill heat for 10 to 12 minutes
on HI with the hood closed. Turn burners OFF and
allow the grill to cool completely.
• After the grill has cooled, use a mild abrasive pad such
as Scotch Brite with a mild stainless steel cleaner to
scrub the stainless steel parts of your grill. Always
scrub in the direction of the grain.
• Remove burner grates and briquette trays. Cover
burner tubes and the infrared sear burner with plastic
wrap. Spray the grill interior with oven cleaner and let
stand according to directions.
• Specks of grease can gather on the surface of the
stainless steel and get baked-on. These can be
removed by using a mild abrasive pad with a stainless
steel cleaner. Do not use steel wool to clean stainless
steel.
• Wipe out the inside of the grill with a sponge, SOS
pads and water. A putty knife can be used to scrape off
thicker debris.
Stainless steel burner grates.
• Scrub the burner grates with a grill brush immediately
after cooking is completed and the burners are turned
off. Cleaning the grates would be more difficult once
they are allowed to cool.
• Wear a barbecue mitt to protect hands. Dip the grill
brush in water frequently and scrub the hot burner
grates. Steam, created as water contacts the hot grate,
helps loosen food particles. The food particles will
either get burned into the briquettes or fall into the
drip tray.
• Do not clean the burner grate section while in place
over the infrared sear burner. The grates may be
rotated for cleaning. Liquids should not come in
contact with the infrared sear burner to avoid damage
to the ceramic tiles.

Care Recommendations
GENERAL CLEANING
MAINTENANCE
Ceramic briquettes and briquette tray.
Infrared sear burner.
• It is not necessary to clean the ceramic briquettes after
every grilling. They will burn themselves clean during
the next cooking cycle. If desired, operate the grill on
high for 10–12 minutes to burn the briquettes clean.
• The infrared sear burner has a stainless steel housing
and protective screen. The screen helps reflect heat up
to the cooking surface and also catches any food particles from landing on the ceramic burner. At searing
temperatures, all food particles will be burned off. The
only maintenance required is to clean the protective
screen and check for particles that may be trapped.
• Periodically, the briquette trays need to be cleaned.
Allow briquette trays to cool. Remove trays from the
grill, shake off loose debris and wipe trays clean.
Smoker box.
• The smoker box and lid can easily be removed from
the outdoor grill for cleaning. Empty contents and
clean with warm water and a mild detergent.
Grill drip tray.
• The grill drip tray collects grease and food particles.
Allow the drip tray and its contents to cool before
cleaning. Slide the tray out and wipe it clean. Make
sure the drip tray is fully inserted back into the grill.
To avoid a grease fire, the drip tray should be cleaned
after every use.
• Never allow liquids to come in contact with the infrared
sear burner. This could cause damage to the ceramic
tiles.
Grill burner inspection.
• Inspect the grill burners for spiders and insects once
a year or if the outdoor product has not been used for
more than a month.
• Inspect the grill burners if the grill does not reach
temperature, heats unevenly or flames appear yellow
along with the smell of gas.
Spiders and insects can nest in the burners of the
outdoor product which causes the gas to flow from the
front of the burner. This dangerous condition can cause
a fire behind the valve panel, damaging the grill and
making it unsafe to operate.
