Dangers & Warnings
WARNING:
DO NOT over-fire your “LG Series Smoker”. Improper Use Can Cause Uncontrolled Fire.
FUEL—WOOD PELLETS
 This pellet cooking appliance is designed and approved for pelletized, all natural, wood fuel only. Any other type of
fuel burned in this appliance will void the warranty and safety listing.

Use only all natural wood pellets, designed for burning in grills.

Do not us fuel labeled as having additives.

At this time of printing, there is no “Standard” for BBQ wood pellets, although most pellet mills do use the same
standards used to make “Home Heating” wood pellets. Further information on this “Standard” can be found at
www.pelletheat.org or the Pellet Fuel Institute.

Check with your local dealer on the quality of pellets in your area and for information on what can be expected from
various brands.

NOTE: Since Dansons Inc. has no control over the quality of pellets, that you use, we assume no liability caused by
the quality of fuel used.
WARNING:
DO NOT use spirit, petrol, gasoline or lighter fluid for lighting or re-lighting your grill.
CREOSOTE
 Do Not operate the appliance if the flame becomes dark and sooty or if the burngrate overfills with pellets. Push the
OFF touch pad, let the appliance cool completely, and then inspect the unit. Soot or Creosote may accumulate in the
main barrel and along any air leakage or exhaust areas when the appliance is operated under incorrect conditions,
such as incorrect burn grate position, blockage of the combustion fan, failure to clean and maintain the burn area, etc.

Soot or creosote is formed when pellets are burned without the correct amount of air to fuel. or incomplete combustion,
thus producing a tar like substance and other organic vapours that combine with expelled moisture. The smoke will
have a black color to it and the residue left behind on surfaces, will also be black in color.

When ignited, this creosote makes an extremely hot and out of control fire, similar to a grease fire.

If creosote has formed within the unit; allow the unit to warm up at a LOW temperature, turn OFF the appliance, then
wipe out any formation with a hand towel. Creosote is similar to tar, when warmed it will begin to run, become like
liquid, and is easier to clean in this state.

Should a grease or creosote fire occurs, turn “Off” the control and leave lid closed until the fire is out. DO NOT unplug
the power cord.
WARNING:
IF A UNCONTROLLED FIRE DOES OCCURE:
CALL FIRE DEPARTMENT.
DO NOT: try to move appliance, try to smother the fire, or put water on the fire.

with blood or circulatory system problems, such as anemia, or heart disease.
Dear “Louisiana Grill” Wood Pellet Barbecue Owner:
Thank you for choosing to purchase a “Louisiana Grill Series” wood pellet smoking’ grill.
Cooking with your Louisiana Wood Pellet Grill is about to bring you full circle from the days of
the caveman when cooking outdoors with wood was a necessity, to cooking indoors in your
modern kitchen and now back to the great outdoors and that savory wood flavor.
Think of your “Louisiana Grill” as an extra stove available to bake, roast, grill, sear and smoke
food. Anything that can be done in your indoor kitchen can be done on your grill.
Barbecuing is a culture all on its own. Barbecuing provides a form of entertainment, which is
relaxed and casual. Your meals can be completely cooked outdoors and the chef is one of the crowd. Keep it simple,
be creative, and have some fun.
We’d like to take this opportunity to pass on a few important tips concerning grilling with wood pellets.
• Initial set-up of your “Louisiana Grill” is the most important step to ensure the efficient and
satisfactory operation of your barbecue for many years to come.
• Be diligent in your cleaning and maintenance program. Taking care of your grill will add years of life
and keep it looking great.
• Use only all natural wood pellets designed to burn in pellet grills.
• Ensure your pellet fuel stays moisture free. Open bags of fuel should be stored in an airtight container and
empty the hopper if you are not using the grill over longer periods.
Our loyal staff, valued customers, friends and our loving families have all contributed recipes to our cookbook. We
have tried to include a broad range of cuisines and styles, starting with Mom’s Great Home Cooking and many, many,
many, catering and entertaining experiences to current classics and new soon to be classics.
WE WANT YOU!
If you are interested in contributing a family favourite or competition winner,
or any recipe, (especially if it contains bacon) please share it with us.
Fax: 1-877-303-3135, Web www.louisiana-grills.com, Email: [email protected]

NOTE: any metal bucket and any size could also be used.
Ensure that the handle can safely clip into the
slotted grease drop.
Tip ! After installing the bucket on the grease drop chute, install
a #3 Hitch Pin up through the drop chute. This will secure the
bucket handle and avoid those accidental bucket spills.
HOOKING UP TO POWER:
AT HOME
This appliance requires 230 Volt, 50Hz, 5 amp service.
•
It must use a 3 prong grounded plug.
•
•
Both the “Deluxe Temperature Control” and “Digi-Que” controls use a 8 amp fuse to
protect the board from the igniter.
GFI Outlets
•
This appliance will work on most GFI Outlets. Recommended size 15 amp.
•
If your GFI outlet is highly sensitive to power surges, it will very likely trip during the ignition phase
of operation. During the ignition phase, the igniter is drawing 300—700 watts of electricity which
can be too much power for a GFI outlet to handle. The quality of the GFI does not matter, rather
the sensitivity matters. Each time a GFI trips it does increase in sensitivity.
Solution: 1. Install a brand new GFI .
2. Plug the appliance into a non-GFI outlet.
ON THE ROAD
By disconnecting the Igniter, from the main wiring harness, your LG Series
•
Smoker can be run using a 100 watt inverter plugged into your automobile
outlet. Then light your smoker using the manual method. ( found in
lighting instructions)
If you do want to continue to use the automatic igniter, it is recommended to
•
use a minimum of a 1000 watt inverter.

Knowledge is Power
How Your LG Smoker Works 101

The perfect barbecue experience starts with filling your hopper (2) with all natural wood pellets.

Press the “START” touch pad (18), this activates the “Fan” (6) which is used to cool the hopper (2),
cause the pellets to burn (8) and results in convection cooking (14). It also activates the electronic Auto Igniter
(7), and the pellet feed system (3,5).

A motorized Auger Motor (5) and Metal Auger Shaft (3), deliver the pellets to the burn grate (8). Your Country
Smoker uses “Top Feed” technology, which means the Auger (3,5) delivers the pellets up above the burn grate (8)
and then the fuel drops into the burn grate. The strength of the auger motor (5), the metal shaft (3) and the open
design reduce the possibilities of “jams” and allows for the use of less than premium quality fuel.

Adjusting the temperature setting on the “Digital Control Center” Board (18) sets the speed of the feed, thus the
temperature output. This control is fully adjustable, from hot smoke 170°F to 600°F searing and shows both
“Desired” and “Actual” grill and meat probe temperature readings.

The “Electronic Auto Igniter” (7) activates until the unit reaches 150°F, igniting the pellets in the burn grate (8).

The Combustion / Cooling fan (6) cools the hopper (16); provides combustion air to the burn grate (8); and causes
air movement in the cooking area (14), resulting in convection cooking.

The fuel burns in the burn grate (8) hot and intense, somewhat like a forge. The fly ash is directed downward by
the “Arched Flame Broiler” (12) and can be cleaned out periodically from inside the bottom of the barrel.

A CLOSED “Arched Flame Broiler” (12) protects the food from direct contact with the flame; gives a large hot
metal area to help evaporate the juices back into the cooking resulting in added flavor; channels excess grease
directly to a grease pail (11); and distributes the heat evenly throughout the cooking area.

The natural smoke flavor produced by the burning pellets, the “Arched Flame Broiler” (12) and the fan induced
“Convection Cooking” (14) combine to give you the savory flavor and even cooking that is unique to pellet grills
and will win you rave reviews each time you use it.
TIP Your LG Smoker Grill can run efficiently over extended periods of time
and at different heat output levels, as long as the fuel supply is dry,
uninterrupted and timely cleaning and maintenance is performed.

Arched Flame Broiler
Unique Feature
All LG Smoker models come with a 14 gauge “Arched Flame Broiler”, designed to
withstand high temperature and give years of performance. The Arched Flame Broiler,
when closed, has been designed to keep the flame out of direct contact with your
cooking surface, thus helping to reduce the chance of flare-ups. The arched design
increases the amount of hot surface area to allow more fats and juices from the meats
to evaporate a smoke flavor, back into meat. As well you will note the bent edges
running down the length of the back and front of the angled, arched steel, these are to
help in channeling the excess grease directly to the one end of the smoker where it is
then allowed to collect in a convenient removable pail. The unique design also directs
the majority of fly ash down toward the bottom of the barrel, while allowing for the fan
forced heated air to circulate around the barrel causing convection cooking.
Sliding the Flame Broiler OPEN allows for “Direct Flame” cooking and temperatures
as high as 1000 F. This is used to “Flame Kiss” or broil steaks, roasts, or vegetables.
Automatic Igniter (#7)
The 300 watt electric igniter eliminates the need for messy starter fluids or gels. It is
safe and easy to start, even the little beginner “Pit Master” can start a LG Smoker. The
igniter is simply a hot rod encased in a stainless steel holder. This style of igniter has
been used throughout the pellet stove industry for years. The combustion/cooling fan
blows air into the back of the igniter assembly, surrounding the hot rod. Then the super
heated air exits through the open end, near the back of the burn grate. As the pellets
begin to heat up they eventually break out in flames, this is known as spontaneous
combustion. The igniter will stay activated for 7-15 minutes.
If for any reason the igniter fails, you can start the grill manually.
NOTE: The igniter can be disconnected, to allow your LG smoker to run with a
minimum 100 watt inverter. (see manual starting procedures, further in this manual.)
Burn Grate (#8)
The burn grate is constructed out of stainless steel and is the heart of your grill. The
burning temperature in the grate can reach temperatures of 1700 to 2000°F. The air
holes are designed to allow the right combination of fan forced air to force the wood
pellets to burn hot and clean while grilling or allow them to smolder and produce the
savory smoke while in the smoke temperature. The back of the burn grate has a large
oblong hole in the back to allow the hot igniter air to come through, causing the pellets to
catch fire.
NOTE: The burn grate should be checked after every MAJOR use to ensure that the
combustion air holes are not clogged and to ensure the igniter hole is clean.
Burn Pot (#9)
The burn pot is used to hold the Burn Grate, the igniter assembly, and to channel the fan
forced combustion air. The pot has been designed to be moved easily to aid in cleaning
and replacement of the igniter. It is very important that the burn pot is seated and
secured properly in order to ensure proper combustion and heat output. The burn
pot needs to be pushed in tightly against the side of the barrel, and secured with a
screw into the bottom of the barrel
(see installing the burn pot and diagram).
Ensure that there is no foreign matter under the burn pot that may lift it off the bottom of
the barrel. This will allow combustion air to leak out, thus reducing the heat output of
your grill.
Auger Feed System
The heart of the feed system is a time proven, metal auger (4) and high torque auger
motor (5). This combination allows for different quality of pellet fuels to be used while
reducing the possibilities of “jams” taking place. The metal auger design also helps in
maintaining a constant and even feed of the fuel to the fire, resulting in better and
consistent temperature control. The Auger Feed System is run by a 2 rpm motor.
(see control board, Digital Control Center, for further information).

Digital Control Center
Digital Control Center
This control is very much the same as the control on
your kitchen oven. The main advantages ar the ability to
automatically compensate for the different ambient
conditions and fuel types allowing for longer, carefree
bbq as well as the Programmable Meat Probe function.
Remember: Much like your kitchen oven, the ACTUAL
temperature does fluctuate up and down depending on
weather, the flavor of pellets being used, and the
amount of food on the grill.
TEMPERATURE AGREEMENT BETWEEN INSTRUMENTS
The temperature inside of any grill will vary from location to location.
Even instruments calibrated together, will not agree with each other.
ON / OFF TOUCH PAD
This pressure sensitive touch pad is used to turn the control “ON”, which initiates the Automatic “START-UP”
Mode. This is also used to turn the control “OFF”, or activate the “SHUT DOWN” MODE.
PRIME TOUCH PAD
This touch pad performs the same function as it has with any Louisiana Grills board. Asked for from the
competition cookers. When the touch pad is pressed and held, the FUEL FEED system will turn and feed
more pellets to the burn grate. This can be used to add more fuel just before opening the grill lid, resulting in
a quicker heat recovery time. It can also be used to add more fuel, while smoking, to increase the amount of
clean smoke flavor intensity.
COOK TEMPERATURE UP and DOWN TOUCH PAD
By pressing either the UP or DOWN arrows, the LED read-out can be moved by 5 degree increments.
The temperature can be set as low as 170°F, for hot smoking to a high of 600°F, for searing your steaks and
hamburgers. Also used to perform the same task with the meat probe.
LED DISPLAY SCREEN
This screen is used to display temperature readouts, as well as displaying error messages, and
power up readouts. Temperatures can be displayed in either Fahrenheit or Celsius.
TEMPERATURE DISPLAY
By pressing the TEMP display touch pad, the LED display screen will show and allow movement in either the
“ACTUAL” temperature read out or the “SETPOINT” or desired temperature. The small LED beside both
settings is used to indicate which temperature is presently being displayed.
PROBE SELECTION
By pressing the PROBE display touch pad, the LED display screen will show and allow movement in either
the “GRILL” probe temperature read outs or the “MEAT” probe temperature readings. The small LED beside
both settings is used to indicate which probe temperature is presently being displayed.
Programmable Meat Probe
Designed using the latest in solid state electronics, the Digital Control Center now makes
it even easier for anyone to slow smoke, bake or sear like a professional “Pitmaster”. Not
only will the control give you the ability to set and automatically maintain your desired
cooking temperature (170 °F Hot Smoke to 600 °F Searing) just like your indoor oven, but
now with the addition of a separate food probe, it will cook your food to your desired
internal temperature, then adjust the control to a “keep warm” temperature. Along with the
true convection cooking within the grill, keeping your culinary delight from drying out, all
you have to do is to set it, then relax or even sleep soundly, while the Digital Control
Center will do the rest.
This screen is used to display that there is no internal (meat) probe connected to the
Digital Control Center, when the meat probe selection has been selected.

How the Board Works 101
START-UP mode
Allows electricity to flow to all the electrical components for 20 minutes. This is a software set program that will
automatically start the combustion/cooling fan, the igniter and the feed system at a preset rate, until the grill probe reaches
a temperature of 150°F. Once met, the igniter will shut off and the feed rate is controlled by the control board..
If for any reason the 150°F is not reached in 20 minutes, the control will turn OFF and an ER-2 will display on the screen.
SHUT DOWN mode
When finished “Savoring the Flavor”, simply push the OFF touch pad. The control will turn off only the feed system,
allowing the fan to continue to run not only to burn out the fuel, clean and efficiently, but also to cool down the grill. When
the grill probe reaches 130°F the control will shut off completely.
Fan Cooled Hopper
The entire line of LG SERIES Smokers utilize the exact same hopper and component
parts. To increase the life of your grill and its main working component parts the
Combustion / Cooling fan is used to perform 3 main functions:
1.
Pressurize the internal hopper compartment to cool the wiring, electrical
component parts and the wood pellets.
2.
Forces constant air movement between the hopper and the grill barrel wall.
Because of higher temperatures needed for searing and because of the longer
length of time a pellet grill can operate, such as slow smoking a whole hog, air
movement is used to provide an air barrier between the two surfaces.
Ensure the air slots found on the front and back of the hopper do not get
blocked off, at any time.
3.
To provide combustion air, allowing the pellet fuel to burn properly. The fan
forced air is then used to provide “Convection Cooking” within the smoking grill.
Convection cooking locks in the juices and distributes the heat evenly
throughout the grill resulting in that savory flavor and near perfect cooking.
Powder Coat Finish
Louisiana Grills uses a “High Heat Powder Coat” finish throughout the entire line of the
Smokers. This High Heat finish is rated for 1000°F. This is done to allow for easy and
trouble free maintenance, and adding to the life of your smoking grill. Powder coating
is environmentally friendly and produces an excellence and superiority of finish that
customers count on. Maintaining the initial appearance of a powder coating is a simple
matter. If the finish does scratch, flake, rust or just needs to be “freshened- up”
it is important to use a touch-up paint ( High Heat BBQ) to repair it as soon as
possible. (see maintenance for further detail)
Grease Catcher
All LG Smokers use the “Arched Flame Broiler” system that channels any excess
grease, that does not evaporate, directly to a sealed grease catch area. From here any
excess grease is directed to the drop spout where it is disposed in, an easy to clean or
replace, metal bucket. The metal handle of the bucket simply hooks on the notched
out grove of the grease spout. Allow the grease to cool before removing the pail.
TIP: if you want to replace your grease fill bucket with a new one, save any small
metal buckets that you acquire from yard candles, etc. .
Hopper Screen
All LG Series smokers use a metal screen, mounted inside the hopper, to protect
fingers, clothing or other objects from coming in contact with the moving metal auger.
This screen can not be removed unless directed by Dansons Customer Service or
authorized service personal, to perform service work.

100% Natural Hardwood Wood Pellets
They are no thicker than the eraser on the end of a pencil. People who see them for the first time
think they look like rabbit food, but there is nothing small about the heat energy or flavor in a wood
pellet. These clean burning wood pellets generate about 8200 BTU’s per pound with very little ash
(.3lb/40lb bag) and low moisture content (5-7%) and are “carbon neutral”.
Barbeque wood pellets are produced in the same matter as wood pellet fuel is produced for home
heating, PFI Standard Premium Grade (see pelletheat.org). Pure raw material (sawdust) is
pulver-ized with a hammer-mill and the material is pushed through a die with pressure. As the
pellet is forced through the die it is sheared off at a specific maximum length, cooled, screened,
vacuumed, and then bagged into 20 or 40 lb. bags.
BBQ wood pellets differ from smoking pellets, used in gas or propane grills, in that most are a
combination of the main flavor and a neutral flavor.

Louisiana Grills is always looking for new
existing blends of wood, from coast to coast.

TIP
Always store your pellets in a dry area. Avoid any contact or exposure to
moisture. This will cause the pellets to absorb the moisture and will result
in lower heat output or cause the pellets to swell and break apart.
Use a moisture proof re-sealable tub or bucket.

*HWWLQJ6WDUWHG
With today’s lifestyle of striving to eat healthy and nutritious foods, one factor to consider is the importance of reducing
fat intake. One of the best ways to cut down on fat in your diet is to use a low fat method of cooking, such as grilling.
Because a pellet grill uses natural wood pellets, the savory wood flavor is cooked into the meats, thus reducing the need
for high sugar content sauces.
Throughout this manual you will notice the emphasis on grilling food slowly at MEDIUM temperature settings. Because of
the benefit of convection cooking and the use of the “Arched Flame Broiler”, your country smoker will enable you to avoid
flare-ups and maximize the nutritional value of the foods that you cook.
Following is a list of the important tips that will contribute to the
cooking perfection that you expect when using your Country Smoker.
Environment
As with all barbecues, the outside weather conditions will play a big part in the performance of your Country Smoker and
the cooking time needed to perfect your culinary delights. Your Country Smoker, because of its single wall construction,
should be considered as a 2 to 3 season grill, depending on what part of the country you live in. For greater detail on
grilling and weather conditions, see the “HOT and COLD” weather tips found further in this owners manual.
Grill Placement
All Country Smokers should always be a minimum of 12 inches away from any wall behind the grill. Your grill does come
with wheels or casters to make movement easier. If you are able to shelter your smoker from the wind, this will aid in
temperature output, heat retention, and heat recovery time when opening the lid. Turning the smoker a 1/4 turn, keeping
the smoke vent holes out of the wind, will result in better temperature output.
Operating the Grill
Initial Burn Off
Before cooking on your smoker / grill for the first time, we recommend that you “Burn Off” the grill to rid it of any
foreign matter. Light and operate the grill on HIGH , or above 500°F, with the lid down, for 30—40 minutes.
Lighting your Grill
It is recommended practice to always go through the SET UP Procedures after every 1 to 3 uses. This will
ensure proper ignition and many happy grilling experiences. Light as per instructions, found in this manual. If
the grill fails to light, this is most likely due to a dirty or full burn grate blocking the auto igniter air passages.
(refer to lighting instructions found elsewhere in this manual).
Should your auto igniter refuse to ignite the wood pellets, it is easy to light your grill manually with a match and
lighting agent. (refer to manual lighting instructions found elsewhere in this manual).
Pre-Heating
It is extremely important to ALWAYS allow your grill to preheat, reach temperatures over 450°F for over
5 to 10 minutes, before cooking, each and every time. This allows the grill and cooking grids to heat up
quicker; it burns off any bacteria or foreign material left over; and grill is able to maintain its cooking
temperature once your food is placed in the cooking area. When you do not take the time to PREHEAT, you
will find that it takes a much longer period of time to bring both the grill and food to cooking temperature.
Always PREHEAT your country smoker with the lid closed. Set your temperature control to HIGH, start your
grill, and allow your grill to PREHEAT (450°f OR OVER) for 5 to 10 minutes. This gives you plenty of time to
prepare your food for the grill, as well it is the final step in cleaning your cooking grids.
NOTE: After Pre-Heating is complete, set your desired cooking temperature, and leave your lid open
until the actual temperature is close to your desire temperature.
Lid Position
Always cook with the lid closed. Not only does this keep the temperature even, the food will cook faster, and
you will use less fuel by taking advantage of the fan forced convection cooking. A closed lid also helps to
create that savory smokier flavor. You can slow down your cooking by propping up the lid using a grid lifter.
CAUTION: Grease fires are caused by not properly maintaining your grill, or failing to clean the bottom of the barrel on
a consistent basis. In the unlikely event you experience a grease fire while cooking, quickly remove any food items, then
close the lid. If it does not go out in a very short time, open the lid and lightly sprinkle baking soda on the fire. Be careful
not to burn yourself. If this does not work, then turn OFF the control board, to stop the pellets from feeding, and shut the
lid until the fire is completely out.

Getting Started
Set Up Procedure
Please note that during shipping or moving around on your deck, some movement within the grill may have taken place,
so a complete visual inspection is required. Please follow these Initial Set-Up procedures to ensure the proper and safe
operation of your grill.
TIP It is a highly recommended practice to always go through these basic SET
UP PROCEDURES, after every 1 to 3 cooking's. This will ensure proper
ignition, heat output and many continuous happy grilling experiences.

Open the SMOKER LID and remove the
Cooking Grids (13).
Remove the “Arched Flame Broiler” (12).
Clean off any excess food drippings or
grease build-up.
Remove the Stainless Steel Burn Grate
(8) and inspect the Burn Pot (9).
Remove any foreign items. Ensure that
the air holes in the grate (8) and the
Igniter (7) are clear of debris.
Note: You can line the bottom of the barrel with
heavy-duty aluminum foil. Line from left to right,
starting from the burn pot area and going
to the Arched Flame Broiler support.
This will make clean-up and general maintenance easier.

Re-install the Burn Grate (8). Ensure that the stainless steel grate is sitting down and snug in the burn pot (9)
and that the igniter is lined up properly with the hole in the burn grate. You may have to gently lift up or down on
the igniter to align with the hole.
Re-install the “Arched Flame Broiler” (12). The larger piece of the “Arch” should be facing upward and the flame
slots close to the hopper end of the barrel. This then sits on the mounting bracket and grease divider plate.
The slot hooks over the moveable hanging bracket found over the pellet fuel drop area. Ensure that this mounting bracket is snug against the barrel. The second piece of Flame Broiler then fits on the top of the first and
then slide “Closed”. If you are cooking anything with a large amount of drippings, you may want to line the
“Closed” Arched Flame Broiler with heavy-duty aluminum foil, to make cleaning easier.
Re-install the Cooking Grids (13)
Ensure the Grease Bucket (11) is installed, cleaned and ready to go.
Open the Hopper Lid (1) and check for any foreign materials. Fill the hopper (2) with your choice of all natural
wood pellet fuel.
Plug it in. Start it up. Savor the Flavor !

Cooking Temperature Ranges
HIGH 400°F to 600° F
The HIGH range will give an oven temperature of over 450 to 600°F (316°C), depending on the
weather. This setting is used to quickly preheat your grill as well as to finish the cleaning cycles for the cooking
grids and the “Arched Flame Broiler”. Could also be used as a HIGH setting In extreme cold weather conditions
or if cooking with the hood open. Also can be used with the Arched Flame Broiler open to create those “Dirty or
Blue” steaks as well as flame kissed vegetables.
MEDIUM TEMPERATURES 275° F TO 350° F
This range is best for baking, roasting, and finishing off that Slow Smoked creation. This range will greatly
reduce the chances of a flare up, with the Arched Flame Broiler in the CLOSED position. Great range for cooking anything in bacon, or were you want control.
LOW 170°F to 250° F
The LOW setting will give an approximate oven temperature of 170 to 220°F. This setting is used to
slow roast; to increase the smoke flavor; to keep foods warm; and many other savory things. Highly
recommended for the BIG BIRD at Thanksgiving, Easter ham, or that huge Christmas feast.
Smoking is a variation on true barbecuing and is truly the main advantage of grilling on a wood pellet
grill. There are two types of smoking: HOT SMOKING and COLD SMOKING. HOT smoking, just another name
for barbecuing is generally done at 170 to 250°F. HOT smoking works best when a longer cooking time is
required, such as large cuts of meats, fish, or poultry. COLD smoking is where the food is located so far away
from the fire that it smokes without cooking. Your Country Smoker is classified as a HOT smoker.
Experiment with the length of time you leave for smoking, before cooking thoroughly. Some chefs, or
Pit Masters as the barbecue world call them, prefer to smoke at the end of cooking and to keep the food warm
TIP The temperatures listed above are all approximate and will be affected by the
outside temperature, the amount and direction of wind present, the length and
type of pellet fuel being used and the number of times the lid is opened.
After Cooking - “Cleaning Up”
One of the greatest benefits of your Country Smoker is the minimal clean up required. When you are finished cooking
and waiting just a little while to let the flavor set in that prime selection of meat, we recommend the following:
1.
2
3.
4.
Using a long handle grill cleaning brush, brass or soft metal, to remove any food or build-up from the
cooking grids, while it is still warm.
Turn the temperature control to HIGH for 5 minutes. Let the grill heat up, then push the STOP touch
pad and your done.
- The control will stop feeding pellets, but the fan will continue to burn them properly, till they burn out,
and then the unit will shut down automatically in 20 minutes.
A quick wipe up of the powder coat surfaces, using a cloth, warm water and mild soap, will keep the
unit looking like new.
Let the smoker cool and put your Country Smoker to bed with the optional GRILL COVER.
TIP To intensify that savory flavor, switch to hot smoke (low) temperature range
immediately after putting your food on the grill This allows the smoke to
penetrate the meats before the pores in the meat close at 120°F.

Programmable Internal Food Probe
Digital Control Center
The Digital Control Center Programmable Food Probe is the newest addition to the Louisiana Grills family and is a must
tool for the beginner or professional “pitmaster”. By simply plugging the probe into the board, then into your culinary
delight, set your desired internal food temperature, not only will it cook your primal feast to you setting, but it will
automatically reduce your pit temperature to its lowest setting to keep food perfectly done, the way you like, every time.
So sit back, relax, or enjoy a good nights sleep and get ready to “Savor The Flavor”.
PROBE PLUG-IN
Insert the 1/8” (3.5mm) audio-style plug from the food probe into this female adaptor,
Ensure it is inserted all the way into the plug, you will feel and hear it snap in place.
This can be plugged into the board at anytime.
CONTROL POWER ON / OFF TOUCH PAD
Press this touch pad to activated the control. Blue LED readout will light up, the fan
will start, the pellets will begin to feed, and the igniter will begin to glow.
GRILL COOKING TEMPERATURE
Press the Probe Pad to “GRILL”. Press the Temp pad to “SETPOINT”.
Use the Cook Temp “Up” or “Down” arrow to select your desired grill temperature
From 170°F to 600°F.
Press the Probe pad a second time to show Actual Grill Temperature.
FOOD PROBE TEMPERATURE
Press the Probe pad to “Meat”.
Press the Temp pad to “Setpoint”.
Using the Temp Arrows, “Up” or “Down” to select your desired internal food
temperature. The probe can be set from 50°F to 225°F.
TIP!
Based on how long you will be away from the grill, set your desired
temperature 10 to 15 degrees below your liking, as the food will
continue to rise in temperature somewhat, as the grill cools, and
idles at the lowest temperature.
“SAVOR THE FLAVOR”
The Digital Control Center will automatically cook your food until the “Desired” Food
Probe temperature is met. The control will then automatically drop the “Grill” cooking
temperature to 180°F. It will alert you by an audio “BEEP”, six times.
The Grill Temperature Setpoint will automatically drop to 180°F.
TIP!
To aid in cleaning, spray the meat probe with Pam or wipe with cooking
oil before using.

Getting Started
Programmable Internal Food Probe
TIP !
All our digital controls and
probes do have a manufacturer
+/- tolerance. It is normal for the
temperature readings to be off by
a few degrees.
OPERATION:
Caution:
Both the Grill Probe and the Meat Probes are made of high quality, high temperature material that can
withstand high temperatures, but it is important to avoid exposing these thermocouple wires to direct
flame or extremely high temperatures which can exceed their temperature ratings.
MEAT PROBE PLACEMENT
Temperature probe placement is important.
DO NOT use the meat probe when using the Flame Broiler in the open position.
The Stainless Steel end of the Meat Probe, should be inserted into the meat so that
the tip is located in the thickest portion of meat.
The meat should be oriented on the grill, so that the probe wires exit the grill/smoker
away from direct contact with flame or excess heat. The probe wire then can be run
to the control a number of ways to aid in keeping out of direct contact with flame.
Through the barrel end,
On 2014 units.
Through the rear exhaust holes.
Through the top of
the barrel. Between
The lid and barrel.
Lest Recommended:
Through the front of the grill,
Use foil protection, on main
grids.
MEAT PROBE HANGER
There are two holes, found in the hopper end handle, that can be used to place your
meat probe, when not in use, or to keep the probe in a clean, protected area, until it
can be cleaned and stored away.
MAINTENANCE:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
DO NOT kink or fold the rugged stainless steel mesh protected wires, on either the grill and meat probes.
DO NOT roll up the wires in a tight ball. Wires should always be rolled up in a fairly large, loose coil.
DO NOT wrap the probe wires in foil.
DO NOT place the probe or wires in the dishwasher, or submerge in water. The water could get into the internal
wires or connections and short out the probe. This will result in false readings. Once the probes have shorted
out, there is no way to bring them back to working status, they must be replaced.
DO keep the solid Stainless Steel probes clean. Both the Grill Probe and Meat Probe can be wiped cleaned, after
they have cooled down, with a soapy kitchen scrubby or cloth.

Shutting OFF Your Smoker
Your Louisiana Grills Country Smoker Pellet Grill will give you many years of flavorful service with minimum cleaning. An
important step is allowing the grill and cooking grids to “Self Clean” by running the grill on HIGH or PREHEAT temperatures
for 5 to 10 minutes after each use, over 450° F.
When finished cooking on your Louisiana Grill set your desired temperature to 450° F—500° F Let your grill run for 5 to
15 minutes, depending on what you just cooked, to go through its normal cleaning method. If you were preparing meats
that were extra greasy, such as anything in BACON, it is a good practice to allow the grill to burn off for an extra 10 to 20
minutes. You could experience a grease fire, but DO NOT PANIC, DO NOT UNPLUG the appliance, just leave the lid
closed and let the grill burn itself out naturally. Much like a self-cleaning oven. This will greatly reduce the chances of
“Flare-Up” while you are preparing your next savory meal.
When cleaning is complete, simply push the STOP touch pad. Your Louisiana Grill Control will begin its automatic SHUT
DOWN or Cool Down procedure.
- The FEED system will stop feeding fuel.
- The flame will burn itself out naturally.
- The combustion / cooling fan will continue to run until the unit cools to 130° F.
- When the procedure is complete the FAN and POWER LED will turn OFF.
If you did forget to grill desert, you can press the START touch pad. If the Actual Grill Temp. is above 150°F the grill will
continue to operate as normal. If below 150°F it will go through the START UP mode again.
Grill Maintenance
There are two extremes when it comes to keeping the grill clean. Those that must spit and shine the entire grill, in and out,
after every use, and those whom are convinced that cleaning only takes away from that barbecue flavor.
One simple rule: EVERYTHING IN MODERATION !
TIP Be diligent in your cleaning and maintenance program Taking care of your grill will
add years of life to it and keeps it looking great!
STARTING THE SEASON OUT RIGHT
A little time and effort at the beginning of the season will not only help extend the life of your grill but will also ensure the
reliability of it. Making you look like the “King or Queen of the Grill”! Most of the cleaning techniques are below. Check with
your local dealer, they may provide a yearly maintenance program and inspection service.
STAINLESS STEEL WORKING SURFACES
ALWAYS clean dirt and dust off all stainless steel surfaces before you begin to cook. The dirt can cook into the metal and
discolor it. These can be easily cleaned with hot soapy water and a soft cloth. A quick swipe of “Stainless Steel Cleaner”
and a soft rag will also work, but you must be careful not apply it to the painted surfaces or interior parts. With the popularity of stainless steel appliances increasing, there are now many commercial products made to clean and protect stainless
steel surfaces.
POWDER COAT OR PAINTED SURFACES
Powder coat or Paint and maintaining these coat surfaces are not covered under warranty.
This is part of general maintenance and upkeep.
Be sure to cure your brand new Country Smoker for at least 30 to 40 minutes before using it for the first time. This allows
the finish to cure properly and allows for that “NEW SMOKE SMELL” and manufacturing residue to be burned off.
DO NOT use oven cleaner, abrasive cleaners or pads on the finished surfaces.
Once installed, maintaining the initial appearance of any finish is a simple matter. The smoke and grime which
builds up on surfaces from time to time contains moisture and salts which will adversely affect the powder
coating and must be removed. Finish Coatings should be washed down regularly. The coating should be
washed down with soapy water -- use a neutral detergent -- and rinsed off with clean water.
When powder coated items are maintained regularly, they should be relatively permanent.
NOTE: If for any reason you do experience, scratches, wearing, or flaking of the finish, both Powder
Coat or Paint finishes can be touched up or repainted using High Heat BBQ Paint.

COOKING GRIDS
When new, wash thoroughly with warm soapy water, place back in the smoker and PREHEAT the grill for 20 to 30 minutes.
After the completion of grilling, open the lid and with a long handle grill cleaning brush give the grids a thorough cleaning. If
you do not have a cleaning brush use long handle tongs and a balled up piece of aluminum foil wrap. Next turn the grill to
“High” or “Preheat” Temperature until only an occasional wisp of smoke is seen (about 5 minutes) . This will remove most
of the material that builds up on the cooking grids.
The next time you grill allow the smoker to PREHEAT for 10 to 15 minutes to complete the cleaning cycle. Give the grids a
quick wipe down with your cleaning brush. Applying a thin coating of cooking oil on the grids before placing your meat on
them will also decrease your cleaning time, as well as allowing to move your food easily without sticking and tearing.
THE BIG COVER-UP
Your Country Smoker will help in protecting your grill from the detrimental effects of weather and outside pollutants. As
with any outdoor product, however, a cover is only as good as the maintenance given to the grill. Following the
recommended maintenance included in this manual will add greatly to the life of your grill.
Helpful Hints
DO’s

Keep your Country Smoker cover clean. This is your best



protection against mildew which will form on any dirt or
foreign material allowed to accumulate on tops or bottoms
of fabric. Use a cleaner or product that will not only clean
but will also protect.
Have any small tears or punctures repaired promptly.
Keep away from pets.
Keep all shrubs and vines away from your grill cover as
many plants contain acids, which harm fabrics.
DO NOT

Cover your grill while the grill is still hot

Store anything on the top of your grill cover.

Permit leaves, twigs or other organic debris to remain on the cover for long periods of time.

Use high-pressure hoses or steam to clean.

Use wire or stiff brushes , harsh detergents, abrasive cleaners or chlorine on your grill cover.
ARCHED FLAME BROILER
This requires very little work, because of its construction and type of material used. From time to time you may need to
brush off any burnt leftover, such as melted cheese or that extra thick bbq sauces. The best time to clean and inspect is
when you perform the initial set-up procedures after every 1 to 3 uses.
To speed up cleaning we recommend that you line the “Closed” Arched Flame Broiler with heavy-duty aluminum foil.
This foil should be replaced after each use and used only when the cooking temperature is below 400° F.
The grease channels do need to be cleaned from time to time to eliminate build-up, allow the grease to flow freely to the
grease catch area and to allow for easy movement of the Flame Broiler Slide Top.
THE COOKING BARREL
To start the season fresh, then maybe 2 to 3 times during the grilling season, it is recommended to remove the Arched
Flame Broiler and Burn Grate. Then give the entire interior a good cleaning, de-greasing and vacuum, to remove
everything that may have accumulated.

Ensure that the grill is COMPLETELY COLD before using your shop vacuum or before scooping out and
disposing of the ashes.

You may want to use soapy hot water, a kitchen de-greaser, etc. to clean the entire inside of the barrel. This does
reduce grease build-up and the possibilities of flare-ups.

To aid in cleaning, it is recommended to line the bottom of the barrel with heavy duty aluminum foil. Start tight from
burn side of the barrel and end at the grease stop area.

Grill Maintenance … con’t
SERIES 3 BURN POT
The proper seating of the Burn Pot is crucial to proper grill performance. The Series 3 Burn Pot has a solid, sealed
bottom with a slot to permanently screw the pot to the barrel bottom The main function of the Burn Pot is to channel the fan
forced air into the Burn Grate, thus there is very little maintenance required. Occasionally you may either vacuum or brush
out any ash build-up or burn debris that has fallen below the burn grate.
It is crucial that the Burn Pot is seated tight to the barrel side wall, tight to the barrel bottom, and is hooked and screwed in
place to ensure proper placement.
SERIES 3 STAINLESS STEEL BURN GRATE
Periodically check the air holes found on the sides of the Burn Grate for any blockage or build-ups.
Using a wire brush or flat-head screwdriver, scrape off any build-up or debris. If there is extreme build-up blocking the
holes, you may wish to drill the holes clean.
When re-installing the Grate confirm the proper seating in the burn pot. The grate is seated straight, igniter hole and
igniter line up and there is little play from side to side in the burn pot.
SERIES 3 IGNITER The 300 watt electric igniter needs very little maintenance. Confirm that the igniter is free of
debris or blockage. Also check the four (4) set screws securing the hot rod into the stainless steel casing are snug. The
hot rod should be flush with the angled front end.
SERIES 4C FAN COOLED HOPPER ASSEMBLY
ALWAYS DISCONNECT THE POWER TO YOUR GRILL BEFORE PERFORMING ANY SERVICE.
There are a number of very quick checks that should be performed on the OUTSIDE of the hopper assembly:
1.
Check and clean any debris from the fan air intake. Eg. Spider webs, tree fluff, etc.
2
Check and clean any debris for the air vent exhaust, found on the front and back sides.
3.
Inspect and clean the fuel hopper area. The galvanized metal can be wiped down.
To aid in protecting the metal and to allow pellet fuel to slide easily, you can apply a
coating of car wax.
4.
Inspect the metal auger area. Check for sawdust build-up and for debris.
You can remove the 6 (six) screws securing the end panel to the hopper assembly. There are two on the front, two on the
back, and two on the under side. This will allow you to perform the following within the hopper assembly:
1.
Check and clean any debris within the hopper housing.
2
Check and clean any debris from the fan blades or housing.
3.
Check and clean any debris from the Auger Motor
4.
Visual inspection on the wire harness and all wire connections.
Upon inspection replace all screws. Hand start each screw to ensure proper threading.
Always be sure the grease catch area is clean and free of debris. During
the warmer months empty any grease build-up on a more frequent basis to avoid it from going rancid and to avoid having
any extra creatures enjoying your grill.
GREASE CATCH AREA AND BUCKET
SLOWING DOWN . . . NOT PUTTING AWAY FOR THE SEASON
We recommend that at least once a month, while your grill is cold, that you should perform not only the above maintenance
procedures, but also include the following.
1. Using a stiff vegetable brush knock-off any build-up scale
on the inside walls of your grill.
2
Check the inside of the lid, the Arched Flame
Broiler, and the inside walls of the cooking area. Using
an old paintbrush, brush off any ash build-up found inside
the firebox, grate and Arched Flame Broiler.
3. Give your entire grill a good cleaning with a shop vac,
when cool to the touch, then quick wash and rinse.
4. Finally, visually inspect the powder coat or painted finish.
touch up any scratches with the proper touch-up.

Grilling Tips and Techniques
COLD WEATHER COOKING
Just because the bright coloured leafs are gone and the golf clubs are put away for another season,
doesn’t mean you have to stop barbecuing. The clean crisp fresh air, the heavenly aroma of flavoured
wood pellets and food cooking, may be just what the doctor ordered to cure those winter blahs. Holiday
grilling also frees up your oven space for other important menu items. Following are a few suggestions
on how to enjoy your grill throughout those cooler months:
Remember: Because of the cooler temperatures your SMOKE mode may fail. Use the COOK mode and
the lower temperature control to achieve the same results. KEEP WATCH !!
ORGANIZE – Get everything you require ready in the kitchen before you head out to the great outdoors.
Put what you need on a tray, bundle up tight, and “get it done!”
During the winter move your grill to an area that is out of the wind and cold. Check local bylaws regarding
the proximity of your grill in relation to your home and/or other structures.
Caution: Never grill in an unventilated area!
To help you keep track of the outside temperature, you should place an outdoor thermometer close to
your cooking area. This will help in determine how long it will take to cook your food.
You may want to keep a log or little written history on what you cooked, the temperature outside, and the results. This
will help later down the road to help you determine what to cook and how long it will take.
When cooking in cold weather, it is better to increase your pre-heating time by at least 20 minutes.
Avoid lifting the grill lid any more than necessary. Cold gusts of wind can completely cool your grill temperature. Be
flexible with your serving time; add about 10 – 15 minutes extra cooking time each time you open the lid.
As always, use a meat thermometer to determine the internal temperature of your foods.
Because the nights come sooner in the colder months, it is a good ideal to work in a lighted area or to have a light or
flashlight close by.
Have a heated platter and maybe a cover ready to help keep your food warm while making the trip back inside.
Some of your better foods for winter cooking are those that require little attention, like roasts, whole chicken, ribs, and
turkey. Make you meal preparation even easier by adding vegetables and potatoes.
HOT WEATHER COOKING
Following are a few tips on hot weather cooking. As it gets hotter outside, not only will the cooking times
of your food decrease but the cooking time on yourself decreases. Proper dress is a must. Shorts,
T-shirt, shoes, hat, apron and a generous slab of suntan lotion go without saying. Don’t forget the big tall
cool drink; we don’t want the chef to become dehydrated.
ORGANIZE – You don’t have to serve a huge seven-course meal. You don’t want to be cleaning your
entire kitchen after every meal. Timing is everything to cooking outside and remember practise does
make perfect. So practise lots and EXPERIMENT!!!
Adjust your cooking temperatures downward. This helps to avoid those unwanted flare-ups.
As always, use a meat thermometer to determine the internal temperature of your foods. This helps in
preventing your meat from over cooking and drying out.
Even in hot weather, it is still better to cook with the lid of your grill down.
You can keep foods hot by wrapping them in foil and placing them in an insulated cooler. Stuff crumpled up newspaper
around the foil and this will keep food hot for a good 3 to 4 hours.
Try to keep your menu on the lighter side. So you can enjoy the warm temperatures and quality family times.

Grilling Tips and Techniques
...con’t
Here are some helpful tips and techniques passed on to us from many Louisiana Grill owners,
our staff, families and lots and lots of practise:
TIP:
Sauces are best applied near the end of cooking to prevent burning.

Before preheating the grill, make sure it is safe, clean and hygienic.

Always preheat your grill before cooking. Set your Desired Temperature to above 450 ° F setting, be sure the
lid is closed and allow the grill to heat for at least 10 – 15 minutes or until the thermometer registers over 450º F.

Wipe off all stainless steel surfaces before preheating. Dirt and food stains will cook into the surface.

“Mise en Place”. Three words that are essential for master grilling. The “Mise” refers to the basic setup of
ingredients and equipment you need at grill side before you start cooking.

Ensure the ash/drip pan is clean and free from any debris and fat build-up. You may want to line it with tinfoil to
speed up your clean up time.

Always check your pellet fuel hopper for debris and to ensure that you do not run out of pellets before finishing.
Use a shop vac to clean out any sawdust build-up.

To prevent foods from sticking, you can brush or rub cooking oil on the cooking grids If using a vegetable spray use
it only before lighting the burn pot. Never spray the grill while there is fire in the burn pot.

Sear meats and cook with the lid down for perfectly grilled food every time.

All Louisiana Grills are designed to allow even fan forced heat circulation, so foods cook evenly on all sides. Leave
at least 1” of clearance between the food and the hood for proper heat flow.

Grilling times in recipes are based on 70ºF (20ºC) weather and little to no wind. Allow more time on cold,
windy days, or even for higher altitudes. Allow less time for warmer weather.

To get better smoke penetration into your meats, go SLOW and LOW. Meat will close its fibres after it reaches a
temperature of 120ºF.

Foods on a crowded cooking grate will require more cooking time than just a few foods.

Foods grilled in containers, such as baked beans, will require more time if grilled in a deep casserole rather than a
shallow baking pan.

Use long-handled tongs for turning all meats and spatulas for turning burgers and fish. Do not use a fork for turning, as it will pierce the meat allowing the flavourful juices to escape.

Misting or Mopping are great ways to keep meat from drying out when going SLOW and LOW. A mixture of 50/50
apple juice (not cider) and water keeps the meat moist and gives it great color.
 A smart investment to purchase would be a BBQ Mat. Because of the fan force
convection cooking a mat would protect that expensive deck or patio stone from the
possibility of grease stains or accidental spills.

FOOD SAFETY TIPS
3
AND
TECHNIQUES
Three Basic Rules for Food Safety
1. Keep everything in the kitchen and cooking area clean.
2. Keep hot foods hot (above 140ºF)
3. Keep cold foods cold (below 37ºF)
We want you to enjoy healthy and safe grill cooking, so following are some hints for basic barbecue hygiene:

Wash hands thoroughly with hot, soapy water before starting any meal preparation and after handling fresh meat,
fish and poultry.

Use a different platter and utensils for the cooked meat than the ones you used to prepare or transport the raw
meat out to the grill. This will prevent cross contamination of bacteria.

Use a different utensil for each marinade or basting sauce to prevent cross contamination.

Do not leave hot foods out of refrigeration for more than two hours.

Cooked foods and salads should not be left out in the heat for more than an hour. Fill a deep tray or casserole dish
with ice to keep salads cool and safe.

Do not defrost meat at room temperature or on a counter top. Thaw under refrigeration.

Marinate meat in the refrigerator. Bacteria are living organisms that grow and multiply rapidly in warm, moist foods.

A marinade should never be saved to use at a later day. If you are going to use it to serve with your meat, be sure
to bring it to a boil before serving.

Always use a meat thermometer to determine the internal temperature of the foods you are cooking. Wood smoke
turns meat and poultry pink. The pink band is a smoke ring and is highly prized by the true “Pit Masters”.

It’s a good idea to put grilled food onto a heated platter, to help keep the food warm. Steaks benefit from resting for
several minutes before serving. It allows those delicious juices that were driven to the surface by heat to ease back
to the center.

BAKING TIPS
What is baking?
Baking is simply, a cooking technique in which dry heat is applied to a food product in a closed environment, such as an
oven. Just like your oven, one can nearly bake anything on a Louisiana Grill, breads, biscuits, cookies, cinnamon buns,
almost anything, especially wood-fired pizza.
Your Louisiana Grill combines the consistent dry heat of wood pellets, continual fan forced air movement and even
heat distribution to give you the perfect baking environment in your grill. The environment outside your grill, ambient
temperature and winds, will have an impact controlling the time and temperature. Your dome thermometer is a good
way to gauge your temperature, but a more accurate way is to use an actual “Oven Thermometer” you place inside the
grill or in your oven, to measure the actual baking temperature within the grill.
Smoke Flavor?
You control the flavor. Not everything has to have that savory smoke taste. Pellets burn with a “Clean Smoke”
as compared to cooking over charcoal and/or stick wood, that produce a “Dirty Smoke” or fire-pit taste.
There are two basic ways to control the flavor:
1. The flavor of the wood pellets. A mild flavor, such as Apple, or Maple would be a better
choice then Hickory or Mesquite.
2. The length of cooking time. Because baking is usually done at 350°F or higher, the
length of time your sinful delights are exposed to any smoke is minimal, therefore it is not
exposed to the smoke for a long period of time.

TOP 14 TIPS
Read through the entire recipe several times & gather ALL the ingredients.
A recipe is only as good as the ingredients that are used to make it!
Wash hands for 20 seconds (before starting, when returning to food) with warm water and soap.
Pre-measure the flour and other ingredients. This is called “Mis en Place”.
Measure dry ingredients using a dry ingredient measuring cup or spoon.
Measure liquid ingredients using see-through liquid measuring cups at eye level.
Use the appropriately sized baking pans & properly prepare them.
Preheat the grill and use an oven thermometer. Get to know your grill and how it acts.
Carefully follow each mixing step in your recipe. Do not over or under mix.
Don’t crowd the grill. Avoid opening the grill hood during baking.
Pay special attention to baking times. Let your eyes and nose be your guide.
Cool baked goods thoroughly before serving or storing.
Finishing touches. Presentation is not everything, but it does go a long way to first impressions. It has been said
that we eat with our eyes.
Store baked goods properly.
TIP Because your cooking grids are designed to hold heat, place a wire rack or a
cookie sheet turned upside down, between the cooking grids and your baking pan.
This helps to insulate the bottom of your baking from burning.
Trouble Shooting
Proper cleaning, maintenance and the use of clean, dry, quality fuel will prevent common grill
operational problems. However, when your Louisiana Grill is simply operating poorly or not at all, the
following trouble shooting tips may be helpful.

on all steel parts, (excluding the burn grate), and three (3) years on electrical components. There is NO
specific warranty on grill probe, meat probe, the paint, powder coat, burn grate, grill cover and all gaskets
or against damage caused from corrosion.
Conditions of Limited Warranty
During the term of the limited warranty, Dansons Inc. obligation shall be limited to furnishing a
replacement for covered, failed components, F.O.B. point of shipment. As long as it is within the
warranty period, Dansons Inc. will not charge for repair or replacement for parts returned, freight
prepaid, if the part(s) are found by Dansons Inc. to be defective upon examination. Dansons.Inc.
shall not be liable for transportation charges, labour costs, or export duties. Except as provided in
this CONDITIONS OF WARRANTY paragraph, repair or replacement of parts in the manner and
for the period of time stipulated hereunder shall constitute the fulfillment of all direct and derivate
liabilities and obligations from Dansons Inc. to you.
The warranty coverage begins on the original date of purchase and proof of date of purchase,
or copy of original bill of sale, is required to validate the warranty.
Repair or replacement of the “LG SERIES Smoker” part does not extend the limited warranty beyond the
five (5) years or three (3) year from date of purchase.
The pouring of liquids on your grill flame will void this warranty.
Dansons Inc. takes every precaution to utilize materials that retard rust by using high-temperature paint
or
powder coat, where advisable. Even with these safeguards, the protective coatings can be
compromised by various substances and conditions beyond Dansons Inc. control. High
temperatures, grease fires, excessive humidity, chlorine, industrial fumes, fertilizers, lawn
pesticides and salt are some of the substances that can affect paint and metal coatings. For these
reasons, the
limited warranties DO NOT COVER RUST OR OXIDIZATION, unless there is loss
of structural integrity on the grill component. Should any of the above occur, kindly refer to you
Instruction Manual’s maintenance section for paint finish protection. Dansons Inc. recommends
that you purchase a full length protective cover, and cover your grill when not in use. Dansons
Inc. also recommends the use of High Heat BBQ paint to repair or beautify your grill.
The warranties are based on normal domestic use and service of the grill and neither limited warranty
coverage’s apply for a grill which is used in commercial applications.
