INSTALLATION AND ASSEMBLY - Grill Safety
CAUTION
Do Not close grill hood for more than 3-5 minutes with burners set to HIGH temperature, or damage
may occur to grill that is not covered under manufacture warranty.
CAUTION
When using your Sunstone™ Grill, always cook with hood up when knobs are on HIGH HEAT setting.
NEVER close the hood and walk away. Always turn burners to LOW HEAT when hood is in down
position
Grill Operation.
Do not use grill for other than intended use. In the event that a burner goes out, turn burner knobs to full
OFF position, fully open the grill hood and let any gasses out. Do not attempt to use the grill until the gas
has had time to dissipate.
Never use the grill if the drip pan is not properly installed. Drip pan should be pushed all the way into the
rack located just under the grill. Fire or explosion can result from an improperly installed drip pan. Keep
all electrical supply cords and the rotisserie motor cord away from the heated areas of the grill. Never use
the grill or side burner in windy conditions. If used in a consistently windy area a windbreak will be
required. Always adhere to the specified clearances listed in this manual.
Never allow clothing, pot holders or other flammable materials come in contact with or be close to any
grate, burner or hot surface until it has fully cooled. Never wear loose fitting or hanging garments while
using your grill.
Fabric may ignite and result in personal injury. Do not heat any unopened glass or metal container of food
on the grill. Pressure may build up and cause the container to burst, possibly resulting in serious personal
injury or damage to the grill. Do not reach over your grill or any other surfaces when hot or in use.
Do not use water on grease fires. Never pick up a flaming pan. Turn the appliance off and smother the
flaming pan with a tight-fitting lid, a cookie sheet or a flat tray. For flaming grease outside of the pan,
smother it with baking soda or use a dry chemical or foam-type fire extinguisher. When your gas grill is
not in use, turn off the gas at the supply cylinder. Storage of a grill indoors is permissible only if the supply
cylinder is disconnected and removed. We recommend commercial quality aluminum pans and utensils.
Never leave the grill and side burners unattended when in use. When using pots and pans, boil- overs will
cause smoking and greasy boil-overs may ignite.
Spiders and other insects can nest in the burners of the grill and block the gas and
airflow to the burner ports. This creates a dangerous condition that can result in a fire
behind the valve panel. Inspect and clean the burners periodically and follow the guidelines in the
Cleaning and Maintenance section of this manual.

INSTALLATION AND ASSEMBLY - Island Safety
ATTENTION: Improper installation, adjustment, alteration, service or maintenance can cause injury
or property damage. Read the installation, operating and maintenance instructions thoroughly before
installing or servicing this equipment.
Placement and Location

Never locate this island in an enclosed room, under any sealed overhead structure, or any type of
enclosed area such as a garage, shed, or breezeway, and keep clear of trees and shrubs.

Do not build or place island under or near windows or vents that can be opened into your home.

Maintain sufficient distance as to not overheat any overhead combustible material such as a patio
cover.

The area surrounding your island should be kept clean and free from flammable liquids and other
combustible materials such as mops, rags or brooms, as well as solvents, cleaning fluids, and
gasoline.

Do not use the island cabinet for storage of flammable or plastic items.

Do not store the liquid propane (LP) cylinder in the vicinity of the grill or other appliance when it is
not being used.

Do not block any island vent in such a way that will cause ventilation issue. Fresh air must be able to
pass through installed vents to safeguard against residual gas accumulation.
WARNING: Either for Modular or Built-in island installation, you MUST install proper air ventilation
at the upper side and lower side of island face wall, if adequate air ventilation is not installed, risk of fire,
injury or explosion may result.
For Built-in Installations
Outdoor Kitchen Island should be built with NON-Combustible applications, including masonry stone or
brick. Never build deck below grill; grill is supported by counter edge. It is recommended that the
enclosure have several ventilation holes or vents to prevent gas build-up in the event of a leak. (See Fig.
A-page 7) The deck ledges and counter should be flat and level in reference to the floor. If your grill is
equipped with a rotisserie or lights, electrical service should be provided. GFCI electrical plugs are
required for outdoor use. If your grill is equipped with a rotisserie, a minimum of 24" (609.6mm) of
clearance is needed on each side of the grill for the motor and skewer.
For Modular Installations
Outdoor Kitchen Island should be built with Non-Combustible applications, including Steel Welded
Frame, or Steel Stud Frame finished with Cement Board. For modular installations, a moisture barrier is
recommended, using pressure treated composite board under base of island. Interior should be lined
with ABS plastic liner as additional protection. No deck below grill is required; grill is supported by
counter edge. It is recommended that the enclosure have several ventilation holes or vents to prevent
gas build-up in the event of a leak. (See Fig. A-page 7) The deck ledges and counter should be flat and
level in reference to the floor. If your grill is equipped with a rotisserie or lights, electrical service should
be provided. GFCI electrical plugs are required for outdoor use. If your grill is equipped with a rotisserie, a
minimum of 24" (609.6mm) of clearance is needed on each side of the grill for the motor and skewer.
Page 6
INSTALLATION AND ASSEMBLY - Island Safety
ATTENTION: Upper and lower air vents (20 sq. in. minimum each) MUST BE PROVIDED on both sides
of built-in construction. The height from upper air vent to top surface of island is 5", and the height from
lower air vent to the bottom is 5”.
Island units must have vents cut into the island sides regardless of whether the grill is kept as NG or is
converted to LP. If no vent openings are made in the island unit, the grill will overheat and cause a fire
hazard! If you have an L.P. model with a 20lb cylinder stored in the enclosure, ensure that there at least two
air ventilation openings of 20sq inches 180 degrees apart and they are level with the cylinder valve. Another
two openings with the same dimensions and distance are required to be level with the base of the cylinder.

Do not use an extension cord to supply power to your island, or appliance. Such use may result in a
fire, Electrical shock or other personal injury.

Do not install a fuse in the neutral or ground circuit. A fuse in the neutral or ground circuit may result
in an Electrical shock hazard.

Use only Ground Fault Interrupter (GFI) protected circuit with this outdoor kitchen island.

Keep all electrical components covered and secured away from any water or other liquids.

Use only extension cords with a 3 prong grounding plug, rated for power of equipment, and approved
for outdoor use with a W-A marking.

INSTALLATION AND ASSEMBLY - Island Safety
CAUTION: Wind blowing into or across the rear oven lid vent (see fig. B page 9 ) can cause poor
performance and/or dangerous overheating. Orient the grill so that the prevailing wind blows toward
the front of grill. (See fig. A page 9)
Windy Conditions
Your Sunstone™ grill is specially designed to draw fresh air in through the front, and in direct to the
bottom burners. When grilling the hot gases are then released through the back of grill through a venting
system. Using your grill in windy conditions may disrupt the front-to-back air flow.
If, while the hood is closed and you fail to see the hood temperature gauge rise, use extreme caution,
turn gas flow to OFF position, if knobs are very hot, turn gas off at source.



For breezy days, be careful not to leave the front hood down for more than 15 minutes, when the
burners are on. (Never leave grill unattended when in operation)
If you suspect the grill is overheating, using an oven mitt, open the front hood. Then adjust the
burner control knob to off position.
Orient the grill so the Prevailing winds are not blowing into the rear or side of grill. (See figure A
Correct Way, and figure B Wrong Way . Page 9)
CAUTION: Any damage resulting from windy conditions causing overheating, including melted
knobs or igniter wires and impulse igniter box. Also any discoloration from heat buildup, is excluded
from warranty coverage.
NOTICE: Ensure grill is installed with proper air flow for correct combustion air and cooling
airflow. Airflow MUST be maintained for the grill to perform as it was designed. If airflow is blocked,
overheating will occur and poor combustion will result.
Location
Locate the grill only in a well ventilated area. Never locate the grill in a building, garage, breezeway, shed
or other such enclosed areas without an approved ventilation system. During heavy use, the grill will
produce a lot of smoke. Ensure there is adequate area for it to dissipate.
IMPORTANT: Gas fittings, regulator, and installer supplied shut-off valves must be easily accessible.
ATTENTION: Check your local building codes for the proper method of installation. In the absence
of local codes, this unit should be installed in accordance with the National Fuel Gas Code No. 223.11998 USA or CAN/CGA-B149.1/.2 Natural Gas/Propane Code (Canada) latest edition or the National
Electrical Code ANSI/NFPA No. 70 or the Canadian Electrical Code CSA C22.1, 1990 or latest version.

INSTALLATION AND ASSEMBLY - Locating Grill
In FIG. B, Excess heat leaves through back of grill, but is
blocked by Prevailing Wind, causing overheating of grill.
1. Slide Grill in Place
Your Sunstone™ grill is specially designed with
an internal built in hanger lip located at the
Right, Left and Back sides. The grill lip allows it
to hang by the three supported edges on the
right, left and back. The front control panel
requires no supporting edge; it is designed to
hang down the front of your cut-out.
2. Allow for Ventilation
Your Sunstone™ grill is engineered with special
vents on the back of unit, which allow proper
airflow out of the back of grill, also increased
airflow into Infra-red Burner gas chamber. Be
sure you allow a minimum of 4" behind grill for
proper air ventilation. Slide grill all the way into
cut-out, so there are no gaps present to inside
of island frame.
3. Securing in Place
The control panel is designed to sit flush against the
island face. If counter top extends beyond the
islands face, creating a countertop overhang, it must
be cut flush with the island face where the width of
the control panel or a gap will be created exposing
the forward portions of the left and right side
firewalls. Also be sure to allow at least a 1" of
clearance below grills drip pan, for proper airflow
ventilation.
Page 9
INSTALLATION AND ASSEMBLY – Locating Grill
NOTICE: Ensure grill is installed with proper air flow for correct combustion air and cooling airflow.
Airflow MUST be maintained for the grill to perform as it was designed. If airflow is blocked,
overheating will occur and poor combustion will result. DO NOT INSTALL PLATFORM DIRECTLY UNDER
GRILL.
Minimum Clearances
When installing the grill in any area was an exterior wall, or overhead structure is nearby, pay close
attention to the minimum distance requirements. For installations with a wall behind grill, it is especially
important to allow enough room for adequate airflow, or issues may occur. For islands that are built
using combustible materials, you must not surround same materials around any appliance, or risk fire.
You MUST use Non-Combustible building materials within 24" around all sides of appliance, ie. Stone
blocks, steel studs. Never locate the grill where the exhaust will be difficult to clean. If you wish to use
the rotisserie option, the space is essential for motor and skewer clearance.

INSTALLATION AND ASSEMBLY –Cooking Zones
ENTERTAINMENT ZONE:
The best location for your entertainment zone is on one end of the island, far away from your cooking
zone, but right next to your beverage zone. Make sure you have plenty of comfy chairs situated here.
SERVING ZONE:
The best location for your serving zone is in the center or heart of the island, adjacent from the
entertainment zone, and easily accessible to all your many guests at once.
PREP ZONE:
The best location for your food preparation zone is the longest counter space that is near the sink and
your grill top or near the ice chest.
CLEAN-UP ZONE:
The best location for your cleanup zone is as close to your sink as possible. Items located near your
cleanup zone will include not only items you'll use to clean up your outdoor kitchen and dishes, below
access storage, and trash drawer for easy clean-up.
COOKING ZONE:
For the best cooking zone location, position it nearest to the 'triangle' as possible either on one end, or
opposite of entertainment zone. It's always best to give this area its own space, so the chef can be
more focused on cooking great food.
BEVERAGE ZONE:
The best location for your beverage zone is on one end of the island, far away from your cooking zone,
but right next to your entertainment zone. This makes it far more ease of use for your many guests.
STORAGE ZONE:

Propane Gas Appliance Service Connections
Appliance service connections are the last line of delivery in a gas system. Gas users are familiar with
gas flex lines and fittings used to connect other appliances to an LP or NG Gas system and the proper
connections must be made for these appliances to operate safely. These appliance connections should
be inspected by licensed service personnel such as an appliance technician or propane company
representative. Additionally, propane or natural gas appliances must be connected to gas plumbing by
way of a valve. Appliances connected directly to building gas plumbing (without a gas valve) constitute
illegal installations and cannot be serviced. (SEE FIG. A Page 15)
CAUTION: Do not use pipe thread sealant or Teflon® tape on Brass flare ends. You will not obtain a
leak-free seal. Pipe Seal or Teflon® tape is only used on Black Pipe. Keep flare end of fitting and flare
seats of connector nut free of grease, oil, pipe thread sealant and Teflon® tape.
CAUTION: Do not use a pipe wrench or channel lock pliers on the connector flare nut. The nut can
be damaged or you will not achieve sufficient tightening torque which will result in leaking gas. Use
open-end or adjustable wrenches only.

GAS INSTALLATION & MAINTENANCE – Propane Tank Types
Types of Propane Tanks: Propane tanks are mainly used alongside stoves, water heaters, grills,
generators, and welding equipment. These bottles or metal cylinders contain propane, a type of alkaline
gas that has been compressed and transformed into liquid form. Transporting, storing, and using
propane safely can only be possible if it is held inside tanks or containers. Since propane has various
applications, many types of tanks are being used as propane containers. Below are some common
examples.
Large Capacity Tanks: Propane is delivered to your home as a very cold liquid and is pumped into a
specially designed storage tank (Fig.A). The liquid changes to gas before it leaves the tank. Propane
tanks are typically painted white or silver to reflect heat and prevent the pressure inside the tank from
getting too high.
If you have an underground tank, only the cover (Fig.B)
will be visible above ground.
 The cover on top of the tank protects several
components from weather and physical damage,
including: (See Fig C Page 20.)
 The tank shut-off valve, which you can close to
stop the flow of propane to your home in case of
a leak or other emergency.
 The regulator, which controls the pressure of the
propane gas coming out of the tank.
 The safety relief valve , which will pop open
automatically if the pressure inside the tank gets
too high. The valve will close again when the
pressure returns to normal.
 The tank gauge, which shows the percentage of
propane in the tank.
Fig. A
Fig. B
Propane flows from your tank to your home through pipes, most of which run underground. You may
also have a secondary pressure regulator on an outside wall of your home to further adjust gas
pressure. A shut-off valve in each pipe can be closed to stop gas flow to an individual appliance. An
appliance connector is the final segment in the gas piping system. This specially designed flexible tube
typically two or three feet long-carries gas from a pipe to the back of an appliance.
Medium Capacity Tanks
Any L.P. gas supply cylinder used with this grill must be approximately 12 inches diameter and 18 inches
high. The maximum fuel capacity is 80% and is approximately 20 pounds of propane. The L.P. cylinder
must have a shut-off valve terminating in a Type 1 L.P. A Type 1 compatible cylinder with a Type 1
cylinder valve has a back-check valve which does not permit gas flow, until a positive seal has been
obtained.
LP Tank Filling







Use only licensed and experienced dealers.
LP dealer must purged tank before filling.
Dealer should NEVER fill LP tank more than 80% of LP tank volume. Volume of propane in tank
will vary by temperature.
A frosty regulator indicates gas overfill. Immediately close LP tank valve and call local LP gas
dealer for assistance.
Do not release liquid propane (LP) gas into the atmosphere. This is a hazardous practice.
To remove gas from LP tank, contact an LP dealer or call a local fire department for assistance.
Check the telephone directory under “Gas companies” for nearest certified LP dealers.

This propane gas grill is designed to operate on propane gas ONLY, at a pressure regulated at 11”
water column (W.C.) when equipped with the correct propane orifices on the valves and a LP regulator
on the supply line regulated at the residential meter. For this type of propane installation, the Propane
Supply Tank is typically located in the side yard, either above or below ground, it is important to have a
licensed plumber or installer do this installation, since specific adjustments sometimes are required to
the supply tanks pressure regulator.
ATTENTION: For Large Capacity Propane tanks are typically located in your side yard, and
sometimes underground function with Propane Type Grills. This type of gas installation can easily be
mistaken for Natural Gas type, since the installation method is similar to Natural Gas. Be sure to
confirm your gas type, with an Licensed Plumber before proceeding
WARNING: Always take a leak test before lighting the grill to prevent a possible fire or explosion.
Never store a spare propane cylinder in the vicinity of this Grill, or in the vicinity of any other potential
heat source. Never store a LP gas cylinder inside a building or in the vicinity of any gas-burning

GAS INSTALLATION & MAINTENANCE – LP Gas Line Connections
1. For this type of installation, it is most similar to the NG gas installation method, only the regulator
is set for liquid propane. First you will install a gas pipe, coming into island from outside, be sure
the Safety Shut-Off valve is easily accessible. See Box 1 (page 23). for illustrated parts.
2. Next, locate the gas manifold on grill, for this type of installation; the 1/2" to 3/8" flare adapter,
and LP Regulator Hose that comes with your LP Grill is not needed. Gas connections are made
with all 1/2" flare adapters, and UL Gas Hoses. See page 14, for detailed lists of adapters and
connections.
3. A LP REGULATOR is required for this type of installation, even if the LP Tank is installed with one
already. LP regulator for grill should be set for a minimum of 120,000 BTU's with Medium
Pressure. This LP grill does not come with an independent LP regulator for this type of
installation. Contact the company you purchased from, or your local plumber to locate one, that
is made for commercial style grills.
4. For easier connections, we recommend the Quick Connect Gas hose, to make final connection .
NOTE: for Large Capacity Propane Tank hook up Individual LP
regulator is NOT provided, (the one provided with grill is for
Medium Propane Tank)

DANGER
1. Do not insert any tool into the valve outlet or safety relief valve. You may damage the valve and
cause a leak. Leaking propane may result in explosion, fire, severe personal injury, or death.
2. If a leak is detected at any time or you cannot stop a gas leak, immediately close pipeline valve
and call LP gas supplier or you fire department!
3. Check all gas supply fittings before each use and each time the gas supply cylinder is connected to
the regulator. Have a qualified service technician leak test the grill any time a part of the gas
system is replaced.
WARNING: Always take a leak test before lighting the grill to prevent a possible fire or explosion.
Never store a spare propane cylinder in the vicinity of this Grill, or in the vicinity of any other potential
heat source. Never attempt to attach this grill to the self-contained LP gas system. Do not use grill until
leak testing.
Before Testing
DO NOT smoke while leak
testing. Extinguish all open
flames. Never leak test
with an open flame or risk
of serious harm to self or
others.
Mix Solution
Prepare a leak testing
solution of soapy water by
mixing in a spray bottle one
part liquid soap to one part
water. You can also use
mild detergent or liquid
soap and water.
Leak Testing Procedure
Perform a leak test at least once a year whether the gas supply cylinder has been disconnected or not. In
addition, whenever the gas cylinder is connected to the regulator or whenever any part of the gas system is
disconnected or replaced, perform a leak test.
As a safety precaution, remember to always leak test your grill outdoors in a well-ventilated area. Never
smoke or permit sources of ignition in the area while doing a leak test. Do not use a flame, such as a lighted
match to test for leaks. Use a solution of soapy water.
a. Make sure all the control knobs are in the OFF
1.
position.
b. Turn on the gas.
i. On natural gas systems, turn the shut off valve
to the grill.
ii. On LP systems, turn the propane tank valve
knob counter clockwise one turn to open.
c. Apply the leak-testing solution by spraying it on joints
of the gas delivery system. Blowing bubbles in the
soap solution indicates that a leak is present.
d. Stop a leak by tightening the loose joint or by
replacing the faulty part with a replacement part
recommended by the manufacturer. Do not attempt
to repair the cylinder valve if it is damaged. The
cylinder must be replaced.
e. Turn all control knobs back to the full OFF position.

GAS START-UP & SAFETY CHECKS –Pre-Grilling Checklist
Start Up
Before you start cooking, clean the entire grill thoroughly with hot, soapy water. This is necessary to
remove residual solvents, oil and grease used, you can also Burn-OFF any heavy solvents by closing
hood, and heating grill up to High temperature, for 2-5 minutes.
Safety Checks
1. Check the battery that it is free from defect and functions properly.
2. Turn each knob, make sure each one rotates easily, does not stick and is free from defect.
3. Check the spark igniters next to burner, make sure they are free from debris, with proper spacing
from burner, so adequate ignition is performed.
4. For Grills with a IR back burner, check the igniter, that it has proper spacing, and functions
properly
Page 29
GAS START-UP & SAFETY CHECKS –Pre-Grilling Checklist
PRE-GRILLING CHECKLIST
Insert Battery
Insert AA Battery into right side Igniter box. Unscrew
black cap counter clockwise; be careful the external caps
spring does not drop from its position. Insert Battery
with Male side facing out, and tighten down igniter cap,
DO NOT FORCE THE CAP ON PAST THE TIGHTENED
POSITION. (See Page 29)
Maintain clearance to combustibles
Your Sunstone™ grill, performs well at HIGH
temperatures, and because of this, it is especially
important to keep combustible material away from
grilling area, by at least 24" inches. Remember also not
to store combustible items near or under the grill, for
risk of Fire. Always keep adequate airflow into and out
of island cabinet. (See Page 10,11)
Gas Supply Shut off Valve location
It is important to know where your shut-off valves are
located. If you ever have overheating, or gas leaks, this is
an important safety issue. Your shut-off valve should
always be in an area that is accessible, if you already
have one inside your island cabinet; it is a good idea to
have one outside as well. (See Page 23,26)
Knobs turn freely
Since your ignition system works by pressing in your
knob, it is important to keep your knob in good working
condition. This is also important for turning the gas flow
on and off, and keeping a good knob to valve
connection. First with the gas flow in OFF position, turn
the knob ON, OFF, push in and release, and check to see
if knob is either rubbing Knob Ring, or is difficult to turn.

INSTALLNG COMPONENTS – Rotisserie Installation
WARNING: Never stand with your head directly over the Grill when preparing to light the Rotisserie
burner, to prevent possible bodily injury. Never operate Rotisserie Burner with main (other) burner(s)
“ON”. Warming Rack must be removed when Rotisserie Burner is ON.
Rotisserie is mostly used to cook large pieces of meat and poultry to assure slow, even cooking. The
constant turning provides a self-basting action, making food cooked on a rotisserie exceptionally moist
and juicy. Rotisserie cooking generally requires 1 ½ to 4½ hrs to cook depending on the size and type of
meat being cooked. You can have rotisserie cooking with indirect heat with infrared rotisserie burner.
Preferred by professional chefs over other methods, the intense heat is ideal for searing in the natural
juices and nutrients found in quality meats. For successful rotisserie, the meat should be centered and
balanced as evenly as possible on the spit rod to avoid overworking the rotisserie motor. (Refer to the
illustrations on page 34 box 1-6)
1. Attach Motor Bracket Assembly to the side of the barbecue frame (can be mounted on either left
or the right side of the frame) using two screws and two nuts.
2. Insert Rotisserie Motor onto Motor Bracket Assembly.
3. Slide Prong Forks with the prongs facing away from the handle onto the Spit Rod. So that any
food item will be in the center between the two four prong forks.
4. Assemble Key Washer, Counter-balance and handle to Spit Rod. Slide Shaft Collar with long end
towards handle.
5. Insert motor extension cord three prong plug into an adjacent grounded GFCI receptacle outlet.
6. Before placing food item on forks when the rotisserie is being operated exclusively, it is strongly
recommended that a pan be placed on the grilling grids, beneath the food to catch the meat
drippings. This will prevent excessive build up of drippings on the grids and facilitate cleaning.
When food item is placed on rotisserie, be sure that all Bolts are tightened securely.
NOTE: Close hood carefully and align Motor Bracket and Shaft Mounting Bracket so that Rotisserie Rod
is in between the hood openings.
Lighting the rotisserie burner
See (Page 32) for Lighting Instructions
1. Grill surface burners should be off for rotisserie cooking
2. Make sure Rotisserie motor is plugged in to GFCI outlet and turn it on.
3. Meat should be centered and balanced on the rotisserie spit rod for efficient cooking.
4. Use a drip pan under the meat to catch any juices
5. Keep hood closed when cooking with the rotisserie
Optional Rotisserie Rod Stow-Away
1. Locate two left and right notches at back of grill.
2. Locate two removable brackets, and hook in place.

Page 37
INSTALLNG COMPONENTS- Transformer Installation
1. Locate the transformer
Remove the transformer from the plastic bag located
in the interior of grill. Make sure the Transformer is
complete, and double check the grill light plug cord is
properly secured to transformer, and all wires are
firmly fixed into plastic clip plug.
2. Mount Transformer
Using metal screws and attach the transformer to the
back inner wall of your islands cabinet wall,
somewhere near the already installed GFCI electrical
outlet. When you plug the transformer in, double
check then GFCI breaker switch, that the outlet has
power.
4. Make Connections
Locate the Light Switch on Left side of grill control
panel. The Transformer's electrical connection to
grill is located behind control panel, next to light
switch. The connection clips together, to form a
secure connection. Double check that all wires are
tightly pushed into plug sockets, so all wires make
proper connections. You can tuck wire into body of
grill or island frame, so it's up and out of the way.
3. Install the Ground Wire
The short green wire extending from off the
transformer electrical adapter is required to be
grounded. Depending on the location you decide to
install transformer, it may be necessary to extend
the wire so that it can reach a grounding structure. A
grounding structure is any solid structure that makes
direct contact with the ground.

USING YOUR GRILL- Types of Cooking
Cooking Zones
Your Sunstone Grill is divided into three to five individual
cooking zones, depending on the number of burners you
have. Burners are numbered starting at one (1) on the
right, going to as much as five (5) on the left, and the last
cooking zone is above for either the warming rack, or
rotisserie unit. Each cooking zone is designed to be
controlled individually by the burner control knob.
Specific zones are better suited to specific types cooking
Heat Distribution
The heat level at each part of the grill has been
engineered for specific purposes. Knowing the heat
distribution for each burner will allow you the very best
possible food positioning when grilling. The front of the
grill is designed, for safety reasons, to be the coolest part
of the grill. From the front of the grill and moving back,
the heat rises gradually until just above the burner's
front edge, where it rises rapidly to a medium to high
temperature. The heat continues to rise to searing heat
amount towards the back of grill burners.
Flame Directors
Your Sunstone Grill is designed for an exquisite cooking
experience with the use of flame directors, which are
wall dividers that fit between each burner compartment.
The flame directors help to insulate each cooking zone to
give maximum heat isolation so that you are able to
achieve separate heat zones, with very little impact on
other zones used for low heat cooking
while others for high heat searing.
Simply lift grate up and pull divider up
and out of position. You can customize
your cooking experience to your own
preference and zone configuration
either large or small.
Page 56
USING YOUR GRILL- Types of Cooking
Smoker/Steamer Box
Adding the smoker box to your cooking experience adds
unique flavor to your food, you will come to enjoy. Use it
for either a smoker box with wood chips, or by filling with
Water it becomes a steamer box. While in use,
remember to close the hood, with the knobs set
to LOW, for maximum results. There are many
different wood chips available on the market, the
most common are mesquite andhickory. Just
remember to soak the chips for 30 minutes prior,
for best results.
Indirect Cooking
Indirect cooking is the process of cooking your food
without the heat source directly under your food. You
can sear meats over a high flame on one side of the grill
while slow cooking on the other side of the grill. It is like
cooking in a oven and is generally used for larger cuts of
meats, but can also be used for cooking foods that
are prone to flare ups. Indirect Cooking will result in
tender foods every time you grill. BE SURE TO REMOVE
FLAME DIRECTORS FOR HEAT TO PROPERLY FLOW.
Sear Cooking
Sear cooking is the process of cooking your food directly
on top of burner on HIGH heat. It is best associated with
Searing your food with High Heat. Sear cooking is
recommended for most grilling applications, and the best
place to sear is in the back of burner. Searing locks in
flavor and juices while allowing the outer surface to
absorb smoke and food aroma that is produced
as grease and drippings are vaporized by the burner. The
result is a crisp, flavorful outside with a tender, juicy
inside.(see Page 60 Fig. B)
Page 57
USING YOUR GRILL- Rotisserie Cooking
The first step is to identify if your grill includes a specialized rotisserie burner or not.
If your grill does include a rotisserie burner, make sure to use only the IR burner - DO NOT use it in
conjunction with the main burners of the grill. If your grill does not come equipped with a specialized
rotisserie burner, you will use the main burners to create heat for the rotisserie. When using the main
burners for heat, typically it is best to either turn the far Left and Right burners on only, for true
Convection style cooking.
When grilling/rotisserie cooking large cuts of meat or extremely fatty meats, place an aluminum foil pan
with approximately ½″ - 1″ of water below the cooking grids and under the food, (Fig. A page 59). The
cooking grates are not required to be removed when cooking smaller meats. The lower pan will serve to
catch grease drippings which will prevent flare ups and also serves to provide moisture to the food being
cooked. Take care to fill up the pan with water while cooking as needed. Always wait for the grill to cool
completely before trying to remove the pan. Note: water can be substituted with wine, beer, juice or
other liquids for enhanced flavor.
Please note: it may be necessary to remove the cooking grids and flame directors, as illustrated in (Fig. A
page 59) from your grill in order to allow enough room for the rotisserie to properly rotate with the
food . Rest spit rod onto grooves in left and right side of grill head. Allow the spit rod to rotate freely so
that the heaviest part of the poultry/meat is facing down.
Your Sunstone grill is included with a counterbalance, set the counterbalance so that its weight is
directly opposite of the heaviest part of the poultry/meat (The counterbalance will be facing straight up
at this point). Tighten the counterbalance in position by turning the axle. Fine adjustments can be made
by sliding the weight up and down the axel and securing it with the thumb screw (Fig. B page 59).
Note: Position the counterbalance so it does not interfere with the side bucket.
1) Insert the pointed end of the spit rod into the motor
2) Attach spit collar to the other end of the spit rod and position into the groove on side of the casting
(or universal rotisserie bracket).
WARNING: Do Not close grill hood for more than 3-5 minutes with Burners set to HIGH
Temperature, or Damage may occur to grill that is not covered under manufacture warranty.
Using the Rotisserie
Preheat the grill by setting all the burners on high, once hot, turn off all but the rear burner. The spit hangs
over the front or center burner, so that the meat is not directly over the heat. If your grill has burners on
each side, preheat the grill, then turn the burners to low. Place a drip pan on the grill below the meat. Add
about 1/2 inch of water to the drip pan.
Place the first pair of prongs onto the spit, then push the meat onto the spit and into the prongs. Add the
other set of prongs and push them into the meat securely anchoring it onto the spit. Tighten the wing nut
that holds the prongs in place and attach the spit to the brackets on either side of the rotisserie.
The rotisseries rod comes with a counter balance weight, adjust it as needed. Start the motor and make
sure the meat is balanced on the spit so that it turns evenly. You may need to adjust the grate and drip pan
if your meat is large. Make sure the meat can turn with no obstructions.
Close the lid while the rotisserie does its job. The rotation evenly melts the fat in the meat and naturally
bastes the meat, but you may wish to baste with a mop sauce occasionally during grilling. Check the meat
with a meat thermometer for doneness before turning off the heat. When done, remove the spit using
insulated oven mitts. Place the meat on a clean platter and cover it with foil while it rests.
Page 58
USING YOUR GRILL- Rotisserie Cooking
Using Direct Heat
Small or thin cuts of meat can be placed on the rotisserie directly over the heat source. The meat cooks
faster and is more like grilled meat. The crisp cooked outside is then sliced off for serving and the remaining
meat is returned to the grill.
With breasts down, bring neck and
skin up over cavity. Fold under edges
of skin, skewer to keep in place (Fig. 1 )
Turn breast side up, tie wings to
body with twine (Fig. 2)
Slide a meat fork on to spit rod and tighten. Insert
the spit rod in neck skin parallel to the backbone,
bring it out just above the tail (Fig. 3)
Insert second meat fork on opposite side of spit rod and secure.
Make sure the bird is centered on the spit rod. Tighten wing bolts
Securely on meat forks (Fig. 4)

USING YOUR GRILL-Burner Configuration
Preheating the Grill (I-BURNERS):
Preheating the grill is important for best performance. To preheat the grill when cooking with the burners,
close the hood after lighting the burners as described above. Set the grill control knobs on “HIGH” for 2
minutes, or allow 5 minutes for a very high grill temperature.
Each grill burner is tested and adjusted at the factory prior to shipment; however, variations in the local gas
supply, elevation and other factors might make it necessary to adjust the burners.
Controlling Flare-ups
Flare-ups are a part of cooking meats on a gas grill. This adds to the unique flavor of cooking on a gas grill.
Excessive flare-ups resulting from the build-up of grease in the bottom of the grill can over-cook the food
and cause a dangerous situation for you and your grill. If this should occur, DO NOT pour water onto the
flames, which can cause the grease to splatter and could result in serious burns or bodily harm.
If grease fire occurs, close the hood and turn off the main burners until the grease burns out. Use caution
when opening the hood as sudden flare-ups may occur.
Burner Configuration
Your Sunstone grill is engineered to
perform with peak performance,
and allowing you to have Searing
temperatures in any burner
location. With a Fully Enclosed
Firebox, and Flame Directors,
that help to insure all heat is
Directed Upward, with very little
heat loss.
Fig.B
Page 60
USING YOUR GRILL-Burner Adjustments
Correct Flame Color and Height
Flames should be blue and stable with no yellow tips, excessive
noise or lifting. If any of these conditions exist, check if the air
shutter or burner ports are blocked by dirt, debris, or spider
webs. If needed, proceed with air shutter adjustment.
The amount of air which enters a burner is governed by an
adjustable bolt at the inlet called an air shutter. It is locked in
place by a set screw which must be loosened prior to lighting the
burner for adjustment. Flames should be blue and stable with no
yellow tips, Excessive noise or lifting.
Combustion Chamber Balance
The bolt on the Right side of each burner called is called the
“AIR VENTURI” and it regulates the amount of air that enters
into the burner for combustion. The air venturi adjustment screw
are accessible by using your hand, be sure burner is not hot.
 If the flame is yellow, indicating insufficient air, turn the
air venturi bolt counterclockwise to allow more air to the
burner.
 If the flame is noisy and tends to lift away from the
burner, indicating too much air, turn the air venturi bolt
clockwise.
Burner Balance Adjustment
Sunstone grills are specially designed with Burner Balance
Adjustment Bolts, in order to fine tune your cooking experience.
For minor changes to the burner overall performance, and
achieving the perfect amount of Air and Gas mixture.
 Remove Drip Pan, and peer under grill front control panel
to view the underside of grill structure. See the burner
Balance Bolt.
 Adjust bolt using a wrench, either clockwise or counterclockwise.
Burner Removal
For general cleaning, or other maintenance, you can remove the
burner by removing the burner bolt nut. It is a good idea to clean
your burners if you are not achieving the desired results. Insects,
dust, or other debris could be blocking proper Air and Gas flow to
Burner.
 Locate the bolt from underneath the grill, in the far back,
behind the grill box wall. You will be required to use a
wrench to adjust this bolt.
 Remove the bolt nut, and remove the burner from grill
for closer inspection.

USING YOUR GRILL-Grilling Tips
WARNING: Always observe safe food-handling and safe food-preparation practices when using this
Grill, to prevent food-borne illnesses.
General Temperature Settings
"High" - Intended for fast pre-heating of the appliance, searing steaks and other cuts of meat, rotisserie
cooking and for burning food residue from the interior of the appliance.
"Medium" - For most grilling, baking and roasting.
"Low" - Intended for cooking fish and other lean foods and for all smoke cooking.
SEAR COOKING TIPS
Even for the most experienced chef, sear grilling can, at first, present a bit of a challenge. By following
these simple tips, you will soon be producing juicer, more flavorful foods than you have ever experienced
before. As a general rule, foods will cook in less time than they would take on an ordinary grill. By turning
food frequently (approximately every 2 minutes), excessive charring is simply avoided.
SEARING IS KEY:
Sunstone grill allow you to sear in any burner location, so long it's on HIGH HEAT setting, and it will
produce intense heat which will quickly sear all your meats. Searing locks in flavor and juices while
allowing the outer surface to absorb smoke and food aroma that is produced as grease and drippings are
vaporized by the burner. The result is a crisp, flavorful outside with a tender, juicy inside. Just the result
you want with most grilled foods.
1. If you pre-cook meat or poultry, do so immediately before grilling.
2. Never defrost meat at room temperature or on a countertop.
3. Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours of taking food off the grill.
4. Never let the tray boil dry. That could be hazardous, as grease from fatty foods that have collected
in the tray could ignite and possibly cause bodily injury or property damage.
5. Use a meat thermometer to be sure food has reached a safe internal temperature.
6. Always trim excess fat from your foods to reduce the occurrence of flare-ups during cooking.
7. Apply a light coating of cooking oil to the cooking grids before grilling, to prevent foods from
sticking.
8. Cook similar portion sizes together, so that they all cook evenly.
9. Use tongs to turn foods on the Grill.
10. Never pierce foods while they are cooking on the Grill, as this will dry them out.
11. Turn foods infrequently. Some chefs say that a good steak should never be turned more than
once.
12. Apply sugar-based sauces such as commercial barbecue sauces only during the latter stages of
cooking, to prevent charring.
13. Soak the string you use to tie up roasts and poultry on the Rotisserie spit to protect it from
burning.
14. Use a disposable aluminum tray filled with water, fruit juice, wine or a marinade to add extra
flavor and moisture to slow-cooked foods like roasts, whole chickens, turkeys or ducks.
15. Always cook foods adequately. Undercooked foods can retain bacteria, especially if thawed or
exposed to warm conditions prior to cooking.
16. Always use separate plates and utensils for the handling of raw food. Never place raw food and
cooked food on the same plate, and never place cooked food on a plate that was used for
handling raw food.

USING YOUR GRILL-Grilling Tips
17. Always carefully wash all plates and utensils used to handle raw food before using them to
handle cooked food.
18. Always use a meat thermometer to confirm that foods have been fully cooked.
19. Always wash all vegetables, seafood and poultry before cooking.
20. Always leave uncooked foods in the refrigerator until you are ready to start cooking.
21. Always marinate meat in the refrigerator. Dispose of the excess marinade, and never reuse it.
22. Always preheat your Grill for 2 to 5 minutes before cooking, and clean off all grease and food
residue before using the cooking grids.
23. The US Department of Agriculture recommends the minimum temperature be reached for the
following food items:
Chops ................................ ..... 145 degrees F (62.8°C)

WOOD CHIP SMOKER:
By using real wood chips in the smoker box of your SUNSTONE™ grill, you can add extra flavor to all of your
grilled foods. For good smoke performance, soak the wood chips for not less than 30 minutes, drain excess
liquid and fill the smoker box completely.
HOW TO SMOKE:
 Fill the smoker box with thoroughly soaked and drained wood chips.
 Place the smoker box on the burner.
Replace the smoker box into the grill, close the hood and set the smoker
burner to high. Smoke should begin in about 5-7 minutes.
One tray of wood chips will usually last about one hour. During extended grilling, chips may need to be
added several times. Lift the box only partially out of the grill to add chips while in use. Never remove the
hot smoker tray completely from the grill. To improve smoke performance, keep the hood closed as
much as possible while food is grilling, turn heat to Med-Low setting with hood closed.
NOTE: If not thoroughly soaked, the wood chips will flare up during grilling. To extinguish flames, lift the
smoker box slowly a few inches out of the grill front and add a small amount of water. The smoker box
can also be filled with water to produce steam which can help keep delicate foods moist during grilling.
TYPES OF WOOD CHIPS TO USE:


APPENDIX- Care and Maintenance
CAUTION: All cleaning and maintenance should be done only when grill is cool & with the fuel supply
turned off at the cylinder. If your grill is set up for use with Natural Gas, turn off gas supply at the system
manual shut off valve.
DRIP TRAY
The drip tray located below the grill should be cleaned
periodically to prevent heavy buildup of debris. NOTE:
Allow the drip tray to cool before attempting to clean.
IMPORTANT: Do not leave the grill outside during
inclement weather unless it is covered (cover sold
separately). Rain water can collect inside the grill, the grill
cart or the drip tray if left uncovered. If the drip tray is not
cleaned after use and the grill is left uncovered, the drip
tray will fill with water causing grease and water to spill
into the grill cart. We recommend cleaning and storing the
drip tray after every use.
COOKING GRATES
The cooking grates can be cleaned immediately after
cooking is completed and after turning off the grill.
Wear a barbecue mitt and scrub the cooking grates
with a damp cloth. If the grill is allowed to cool down,
cleaning the grates will be easier if removed from the
grill and cleaned with a mild detergent.
FLAVORIZORS
Washing the flavorizors after every use is not necessary but
periodically it is suggested you wash them in a soap and warm
water solution. Use a wire brush to remove stubborn burned
on cooking residue. Dry flavorizors & flame dividers
thoroughly before you reinstall them in the cooking insert .
Clear any clogged port holes
(the holes where gas/flame
exits the burner) with a stiff
wire or tooth pick).
STAINLESS STEEL
After initial usage, areas of the grill may discolor from the
intense heat given off by the burners. This is normal, use a
mild stainless steel cleaner and rub in the direction of the
grain of the metal. Specks of grease can gather on the
surface of the stainless steel and bake on to the surface and
give a worn appearance. For removal, use a nonabrasive
oven cleaner in conjunction with a stainless cleaner.
NOTE: Always scrub in the direction of the grain.
Page 64
APPENDIX- Care and Maintenance
ANNUAL CLEANING OF GRILL HOUSING
Burn-off the grill after use will keep it ready for instant use, however, once a year you should give the
entire grill a thorough cleaning to keep it in top operating condition.
1. Shut off gas supply at source and disconnects fuel line. Protect fuel line fitting.
2. Remove and clean the cooking grids, flavorizors and burners.
3. Remove warming rack and wash with mild detergent and warm water.
4. Cover the gas valve orifices with a piece of aluminum foil.
5. Brush the inside and bottom of the grill with a stiff wire brush, and wash down with a mild soap and
warm water solution. Wash thoroughly and let it dry.
6. Remove aluminum foil from orifices and check orifices for obstruction.
7. Check electrode.
8. Reinstall flavorizors, cooking grids, and warming rack.
9. Reconnect to gas source and observe burner flame for correct operation.
IMPORTANT: You should NOT line the bottom of the grill housing with aluminum foil, sand or any other
grease absorbent substance. Grease will not be able to drip into the drip tray and a grease fire may occur.
MAINTENANCE GUIDELINES
1. Keep outdoor cooking gas appliance area clear and free from combustible materials, gasoline and
other flammable vapors and liquids.
2. Do not obstruct the flow of combustion and ventilation air.
3. Keep the ventilation opening(s) of the cylinder enclosure free and clear from debris.
4. Visually check burner flames. Burner flames should be blue and stable with no yellow tips, excessive
noise, or lifting.
5. Clean outdoor cooking gas appliance, including special surfaces, with recommended cleaning agents,
if necessary.
6. Check and clean burner for insects and insect nests. A clogged tube can lead to a fire beneath the
grill.
RUST-BROWN MARKS:
When this type of staining occurs it is unlikely that rusting of the stainless steel itself causes the marks.
Similar marks can be found with both porcelain and plastic sinks. The rust marks are the result of small
particles of “ordinary-steel” which have become attached to the surface; these have subsequently
rusted in the damp environment. The most common source of such particles is from “wirewool” scouring
pads, but contamination may also occur from carbon steel utensils and old cast iron water supply pipes.
These brown marks are only superficial stains, which will not harm the Grill; they should be removable
using a soft damp cloth and a multi-purpose cream cleanser. Occasionally, it may be necessary to resort to
a proprietary stainless steel cleanser, to return the surface of the Grill to its original condition. To avoid reoccurrence of any “rust-staining” it is essential that the source of the contamination be eliminated.
PITTING:
Another form of corrosion, which occasionally occurs in stainless steel, is pitting of the surface. The reason
for this corrosive attack can usually be attributed to certain household products. Such as .
BLEACHES:
Most common domestic bleaches & sterilizing solutions contain chlorine in the form of sodium
hypochlorite. If used in concentrated form, bleaches can attack the stainless steel, causing pitting of the
surface. They should always be used to the strengths prescribed by the manufacturer and should be
thoroughly rinsed off with clean water immediately after use. All cleaning agents containing hypochlorite
are unsuitable for long term contact with stainless steel and, even when used in the highly diluted form,
they can give pitting under certain conditions.
FOODSTUFFS:
In general stainless steel is fully resistant to all foodstuffs in common use. Only in isolated cases, such
as when concentrated salt and vinegar mixtures are allowed to remain in contact with the steel for a long
period can any surface marking result.

QUESTION
When I turn on my grill, I smell gas. What should I do?
Propane and Natural Gas have an additive scent known as “mercaptan,” an acrid chemical, to the gas so
that you will recognize it immediately, should there ever be a leak. Mercaptan makes gas smell like
sulphur, or rotten eggs. .
ANSWER
Shut off the propane gas cylinder or natural gas service valve immediately! Do not use the grill until the
leak is fixed. Any time you smell gas when operation grill, you should immediately perform the “Leak
Test” to identify the leak and fix it
Please note that if you are using propane tank which includes a magnetic flow limiting device, this safety
mechanism may have been triggered. The flow limiting device acts to limit the flow of gas if a leak is
detected between the regulator and the burner valve(s). If the burner valve(s) is open prior to the LP gas
cylinder service valve being opened, the connection will interpret this free flow of gas to be a leak. The
connections safety feature will reduce gas flow from the regulator to the appliance to a minimal
level. Be sure that all burner valves are closed prior to opening the LP gas cylinder service valve to
ensure that the connection flow limiting device is not triggered mistakenly. If the connection flow
limiting device is triggered mistakenly, close the LP gas cylinder service valve and the burner valves, wait
10 seconds to allow the device to reset, open the cylinder service valve, then open the burner valves
and light the grill as per lighting instructions.
QUESTION
My grill is has Low Heat, even when on High Setting?
See page 9,13,60,61
ANSWER
Ensure that adequate preheat time has elapsed. I-burners should preheat for at least 5 minutes with the
hood closed (2 minutes for high heat); IR burners should be allowed to preheat for at least five minutes
with the hood open. If adequate preheat time was allowed, check the gas supply for a damaged and/or
kinked supply line. Replace if necessary. On LP units, a mostly empty tank may not have sufficient
pressure to run the grill at high heat. Replace with a full tank. Make sure that the regulator/hose
assembly being used is the unit supplied with the grill. On NG units, ensure that the flexible supply line is
at least 1/2” diameter. Check the gas supply pressure to ensure at least 7” W.C. for NG and 11” W.C.
for LP. If gas supply is adequate, check burners for blockages according to the procedure described
above. Check flame characteristics according to the procedure on page 61 and adjust air shutter if
needed. Check that there is no pressure being applied to the regulator attached to the back of the grill.
This regulator contains a flexible diaphragm and should not touch the grill body or any surrounding
objects. Check to make sure that the burners and the drip tray are clean and free from obstructions.
Clean if necessary.

APPENDIX- Troubleshooting
QUESTION
When I push in the knob, my grill does not ignite?
See page 29-32
ANSWER
First determine if the spark igniters are functioning properly. You should hear a rapid snapping sound
when the igniter button is depressed. If no sound is heard, try replacing the igniter battery. If the battery
is good, ensure that the proper gap exists between the burner and electrode wire. If the spark igniters
are working correctly, next determine if gas is reaching the burners.
Check to see if any there are any signs of melted plastic around igniter box. If you discover any bubbles
or melted plastic, you need to replace igniter box. Ensure the gas supply is turned on, and that there are
no leaks. Attempt to match-light a burner.
If the burner will light with a match, then the spark igniter may not be functioning correctly, or may not
be adjusted correctly. If the burner will not match light, and the gas supply has been confirmed, then
check the burner for blockages.
QUESTION
When I turn my grill burners on medium to low, my grill blows out?
See page 73
ANSWER
First determine if the problem is being caused by location. If location is subject to high winds, reposition
grill to provide some protection by placing the front of the grill toward the prevailing wind. Check the
gas supply and flame characteristic according to the procedure under Low / Insufficient Heat. Correctly
installed burners should be seated firmly with no side-to-side movement.
Adjust the Air Venturi Bolt, on right side of burner. The bolt can be adjusted, so more air flows into
burner gas chamber, for increased flame height. Check the burner knob, that it is correctly turning the
grill valve, and check to see if it is loose on valve. Try pulling the knob directly off, and manually turn the
valve stem with your hand, see if it turns gas flow on properly and ignition works. If this works, use a
small flat-head screw driver and very-gently push it into the slip between the two pins at the tip of the
valve stem. This will slightly push the valve stem pins apart to create a stronger grip on control knob.
QUESTION
My Rotisserie burner will not light. What should I do?
See page 29-32
ANSWER
This is a tremendous safety feature on your Sunstone grills, but it may cause some delays as grillers
become familiar with the particular workings of these advanced "safety valves". The largest potential
problem is in lighting the grill. The "safety valve" requires heat at the rotisserie burner in order to send a
signal to the valve to allow gas to flow to the burner. What this means is that when lighting such
rotisserie burners, the griller must push in, turn to HIGH and hold the rotisserie burner control knob
until it reaches a sufficient temperature to hold the valve "open". This generally will occur in
approximately 5 seconds, but in some Instances (particularly in colder weather), it may take longer. You
should follow the Lighting instructions to light the burner and ensure that the rotisserie burner is indeed
lit before leaving the grill. In addition to the "safety valve" described above, there are a variety of other
reasons that any burner will not light properly.

APPENDIX- Troubleshooting
QUESTION
I have excessive flare ups?
See page 60-61
ANSWER
Flare ups are typically caused when grease comes into direct contact with flames from the burner. This
often occurs when cooking particularly juicy foods or foods with sauces. There are several ways to
reduce flare ups. Clean your grill: often flare ups are caused by grease and residue that has built up on
the inside of your grill. A thorough cleaning of your grill will help to reduce these flare ups.
Use the "indirect" cooking method when cooking juicy/saucy foods: this technique recommends that you
use the burners NOT directly below your food to create the heat necessary for cooking. This means that
there are no flames directly below your food for the grease/sauce to contact and create a flare up. For
more information on "indirect" cooking, see page 57.Turn down the heat: some flare ups are caused
simply because the grill is set at too high of a temperature for the food being cooked. Turning down the
heat to a medium or low setting may help to reduce some flare ups.

APPENDIX- Gas Conversions
Understanding Gas Appliance Conversions
Making changes to an appliance so that it can utilize a different fuel is known as appliance conversion
and involves the replacement of gas orifices, valves and or regulators. These internal connections and
gas utilization fittings are designed to work with a particular gas that has a specific pressure. Natural gas
is a much lower pressure gas than propane and converting the appliance to one or the other gases
requires that the differing pressure is compensated for. In other words, connecting a natural gas
appliance to a propane piping system will result in appliance malfunction and possibly danger. The
reason for this is because natural gas orifices are larger than propane orifices strictly because of gas
service pressure. In this case, the higher pressure gas flowing through a larger orifice will result in more
gas through the burner and likely, more flame...an unnecessarily large flame. Conversely, trying to use a
propane appliance with natural gas will likely result in a very small flame or no burner flame at all
because of the lower pressure gas and the smaller orifice. This is the underlying purpose of an appliance
conversion from propane to natural gas or from natural gas to propane. Additionally, appliances cannot
be converted from electricity to propane, or vice-versa.
Conversions between Natural Gas and Propane
The following illustrated conversion can be used for when converting either from LP to NG or NG to LP.
This example is shown with the Sunstone 4 Burner with Infra Red Burner. Other Grills without a IR
Burner, can also follow this instructions, the only difference is you are not required to change any
"Safety Valve" or "IR Orifice". For converting gas types, it is extremely important to follow these
instructions step by step, we always recommend a Licensed Plumber or Installer perform any
maintenance or gas conversion on your grill.
Step by Step Instructions
1. Remove Drip Pan
2. Unscrew bolt connecting manifold pipe to grill body, located at right back side of grill base.
3. Unscrew the Left and Right small screws located below the control panel, where drip pan was
removed.
4. Slide entire Control Panel and Valve assembly out from grill body.
5. Disconnect all wires, and flex lines from valves and igniter, pay close attention to where they are
all located.
6. IR GRILLS ONLY - Remove center knob, unscrew Top and Bottom screws only.
7. Flip control panel over, on side so you have easy access to valves.
8. IR GRILLS ONLY - Unscrew base bracket, hold center valve to gas manifold pipe, and remove
valve.
9. IR GRILLS ONLY - Install new Safety Valve in correct gas type, follow the instructions in reverse.
10. Locate the valve orifice at the ends of each valve; it is either a small screw at the tip of valve or a
long cylinder, as shown in illustration.
11. Unscrew each orifice one by one, replacing with the correct gas type orifice.
Page 69
APPENDIX- Gas Conversions
Page 70
APPENDIX- Gas Conversions
The following instructions are required only for grills with Infra-Red Back Burner. Grills with this type of
back burner come with the Rotisserie rod and motor. It is necessary when converting your gas type, to
change the small orifice situated behind the thermal coupler and igniter in gas chamber of IR-Burner. Not
changing this orifice will cause to much or not enough gas flow through, and will be to hot or not hot
enough, depending on your gas type.

APPENDIX- Gas Conversions
SPIDER AND
INSECT WARNING
INSECT WARNING:Spiders and insects
can nest in the burners of this and other grills,
which could disrupt gas flow. This dangerous
condition could cause a fire behind and beneath
the valve panel, damaging the grill and making it
unsafe to operate. We recommend you check
the grill and remove any spiders, insects and
webs at least once a year to reduce this risk.
