Using the Outdoor Grill
Grill Lights
IMPORTANT NOTE: Before grilling for the first time, turn
the grill on high for 10 minutes with the hood closed. This
will heat the internal components. Smoking from the grill is
normal because it is burning off protective oils on metal
components.
Your Wolf grill is equipped with two halogen interior lights
and LED lights for the control knobs for night grilling.
1) Verify that the drip tray is fully inserted into the grill.
Push the button located on the front panel to turn on the
interior and knob lights. The interior lights turn off automatically when the hood is closed but knob lights will
remain on. Push the button again to turn off all lights.
2) Light the grill burners following the procedure on
pages 8–9.
3) Turn control knobs to HI and allow the grill to preheat
for 10 minutes or until desired temperature is displayed
on the thermometer. The hood should be closed while
grill is preheating.
4) Place food on the grill and cook to the desired temperature or doneness. Adjust the heat setting if necessary.
The control knob may be set to any position between
HI and LO. Refer to heat settings on page 14.
5) Allow grill to cool and clean the drip tray after each
use.
Do not touch the halogen interior lights. They may be
hot and can cause serious burns.
INTERIOR LIGHT BULB REPLACEMENT

Infrared Sear Burner
Smoker Box
Searing steaks and other meats with the infrared sear
burner at the beginning of the grilling cycle helps lock in
juices and flavor. Sear meats quickly, followed by regular
grilling over grill burners.
The Wolf sealed smoker box can hold your favorite liquid
or soaked wood chips to give meat a smoky flavor. The
smoker box comes with all outdoor grills.
TO INSTALL AND USE THE SMOKER BOX
Never allow liquids to come in contact with the infrared
sear burner since it could cause damage to the
ceramic tiles. Do not place briquette tray over infrared
sear burner. This will block the infrared heat and will
damage the tray.
1) Remove one hexagonal grate and slide the remaining
grates 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 page 8 for
location of flash tube.
2) Place the smoker box in place of the briquette tray.
The smoker box will always 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 and add your favorite soaked
wood chips. Place lid on top of smoker box. Do not
over-pack smoker box with wood chips.
4) Turn 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 and slide grate
over smoker box and place food directly on grate over
smoker box for best results.
6) Every 30 to 45 minutes, slide grate to the side inside
grill to expose smoker box, open 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 change shape or
deform with heat, but will retain its original shape after it
cools.
Never use the smoker box over the infrared sear
burner.

Rotisserie System
Using the Rotisserie
The two-position rotisserie system allows for food of
different sizes to cook at the proper distance from the
infrared rotisserie burner. The maximum load for the
rotisserie is 25 lbs (11 kg).
The rotisserie system rotates food in front of an infrared
burner for even cooking and a more juicy taste.
LOW POSITION FOR LARGE LOADS
1) Install the rotisserie motor as shown. The motor socket
hole will line up with the lower notch of the spit saddles.
2) Insert the rotisserie spit rod into the motor socket hole
and place the rod on the lower notch of each spit
saddle.
3) Remove the hexagonal grates.
4) Place the basting pan on top of the briquette trays to
catch the drippings.
HIGH POSITION FOR SMALL LOADS
1) Install the rotisserie motor as shown. The motor socket
hole will line up with the upper notch of the spit
saddles.
2) Insert the rotisserie spit rod into the motor socket hole
and place the rod on the upper notch of each spit
saddle. Place a basting pan on top of the hexagonal
grates to catch the drippings.
For easy removal of the spit rod, lift slightly on the rotisserie motor and pull the spit rod out.
1) Install the rotisserie motor on the motor bracket and
plug it in to a GFCI 120 V AC outlet.
2) Insert the food in the middle of the spit rod and then
secure it with the meat forks on both ends by tightening the thumb screws on the meat forks against one of
the flat sides of the hexagonal spit rod. If multiple
pieces of food will be cooked at the same time, make
sure the load is evenly balanced on the spit rod. Proper
load balance will allow even cooking and prolong the
life of the rotisserie motor.
3) Insert the spit rod in the rotisserie motor at the desired
cooking position. You may need to remove the hexagonal grates and warming rack to create clearance for
large loads of food. Refer to the illustrations on the
following page.
4) Always use the basting pan beneath the food to catch
drippings and prevent them from falling on the burners
and briquette trays. The hexagonal grates may be
removed to allow basting pan to sit directly on
briquettes for large loads.
5) Locate the rotisserie knob which is the second knob
from the left.
6) Push in and turn the knob counterclockwise to the HI
position. The rotisserie igniter will remain on during
entire cooking period.
IMPORTANT NOTE: If the burner fails to light within five
seconds, turn knob to the OFF position, wait five minutes
and repeat step 6.
LOW POSITION
HIGH POSITION
7) Once lit, close hood until rotisserie burner has reached
desired cooking temperature (approximately 10
minutes). Then place spit rod with food into rotisserie
motor.
8) Once cooking is complete, shut off the rotisserie
burner and main gas valve.

Using the Rotisserie
Warming Rack
IMPORTANT NOTE: 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.
The warming rack 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.
IMPORTANT NOTE: In sunny conditions, it may be difficult
to see the flame to verify ignition of the infrared rotisserie
burner.
IMPORTANT NOTE: 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.
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.

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.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not use aluminum foil, as food
grease may be trapped, causing flame flare-up.
GRILLING METHODS
• 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.
Direct method: Food is cooked directly over the heat
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.
• When opening the hood, wear an barbecue mitt that
covers your wrist. Stand to the side of the grill and lift
the hood handle slowly.
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.
• Allow meat to defrost in the refrigerator overnight
rather than microwaving it to help retain juices.
• Apply salt only after cooking to prevent drying out the
meat.
• 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 that the pan is large
enough to accommodate the desired volume of food
without overflow caused by bubbling of the fat. Never
leave a deep fat fryer unattended. Avoid deep fat frying
of moist or frost-covered foods, as foods with high
water content may cause spattering or spilling of the
hot fat. Heat fat slowly, and stir together any combinations of oils and fats prior to applying heat. Use a deep
fat frying thermometer to avoid heating the fat to
temperatures above the flash point.
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.
HEAT SETTINGS
HI and SEAR: Used for quick searing of meats and
vegetables.
MED: Grill steaks, pork chops and hamburgers. You may
also sear meats on medium and cook them on low.
LO: Used for cooking dense vegetables, roasts, thick cuts
of meat, poultry and fish.

Cleaning and Maintenance
With briquettes and grates in place, turn all 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.
INTERIOR
• After the grill has cooled, remove debris from grates
with the grill brush. Remove grates and clean with
soapy water.
• Remove briquettes, shake or blow off any ash. Spray
with water if desired.
• Cover burner tubes and infrared sear burner with
plastic wrap. Spray inside the grill with oven cleaner
and let stand according to directions.
• Wipe out the inside of the grill with a sponge, SOS
pads and water. If necessary, a small putty knife can be
used to scrap off thicker debris.
STAINLESS STEEL EXTERIOR
Wolf outdoor grills, modules and grill carts are made of
heavy-duty stainless steel and are non-rusting and nonmagnetic.
• Never clean the stainless steel 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.
• 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.
• 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.
Outdoor Grill Use & Care

Cleaning and Maintenance
HEXAGONAL GRATES
• Scrub the hexagonal grates with the grill brush
(provided with the outdoor product) immediately after
cooking is completed and the burners are turned off.
• Wear a barbecue mitt to protect hands from the heat
and steam. Dip the grill brush in tap water and scrub
the hot hexagonal grates. Dip the brush frequently in
the water. Steam, created as water comes in contact
with the hot grill, helps loosen food particles stuck on
the grates. These food particles will either get burned
into the briquettes or fall into the drip tray.
Never allow liquids to come in contact with the infrared
sear burner since it could cause damage to the
ceramic tiles.
SPIDERS AND INSECTS
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 the grill unsafe to operate.
Inspect the grill burners for spiders and insects once a
year or if the outdoor product has not been used for more
than one month or if any of the following conditions occur:
• The smell of gas in conjunction with the burner flames
appearing yellow.
• The outdoor product does not reach temperature.
• The outdoor product heats unevenly.
• The burners make a “popping” sound.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not clean the hexagonal grate
section while over the infrared sear burner. The grates may
be rotated for cleaning.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Cleaning the hexagonal grates would
be more difficult once they are allowed to cool. When
cleaning the grates, make sure to not contact the rotisserie burner.

It is not necessary to remove and clean the briquettes
from the briquette tray after every grilling. They will burn
themselves clean during the next cooking cycle. If desired,
you can burn them clean by operating the grill on high for
10–12 minutes.
The infrared sear burner has a stainless steel housing and
protective screen. The protective screen helps reflect heat
up to the cooking surface and also catches any food particles from landing on the ceramic burner. At searing
temperatures that the burner reaches, 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. When
cool, remove the briquette trays from the grill, shake loose
the debris and wipe the trays clean. Do not handle a hot
briquette tray.
DRIP TRAY
Do not place briquette trays over the infrared sear
burner. This will block the infrared heat and cause
damage to the tray.
The pull-out drip tray collects grease, liquid and fallen
food particles. Allow the 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 any possibility of a grease fire, it is highly recommended that you clean the tray after every use.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not use the grill without the drip
tray fully inserted.
SMOKER BOX
The smoker box and lid can easily be removed from the
grill for cleaning. Empty contents and clean with soap and
water.

Internal Temperature
The outdoor grilling guide on the following pages provides
the suggested grilling time and flame setting for a variety
of foods. Consult an outdoor grilling cookbook for more
specific times and handling of various foods. For more
outdoor grilling recipes and ideas, visit wolfappliance.com.

USDA recommended carving temperatures.
INTERNAL TEMPERATURE
DONENESS
GENERAL GRILLING
Preheat grill burners for 10 minutes on the desired heat
setting. To sear foods, preheat the infrared sear burner on
HI for 10 minutes. Sear meat up to two minutes on each
side, then move food to the grilling area, turning food
halfway through cooking time. Cook to the desired
temperature or doneness.
ROTISSERIE
Preheat the infrared rotisserie for 10 minutes on the
desired heat setting. Heat from the rotisserie comes only
from the back of the grill. Additional indirect heat from the
far right burner, on LO, may be used to speed up cook
time.

Use the smoker box to smoke enhance foods. Refer to
page 11 for information on how to install and use the
smoker box. There will be better smoking results if the
smoker box is not firmly packed with wood chips. Keep
the grill temperature between 200°F (95°C) to 250°F
(120°C) to slow cook the food for a better smoke
enhanced flavor. For a slower cooking procedure and less
smoke enhanced flavor, place the food above the smoker
box on the warming rack. Timing for the food on the
warming rack will be longer.
