GRILLING GUIDE – Getting Started
First Time Use
Read your Assembly Manual and ensure the grill is put
together properly. Remove all Point-of-Purchase advertising
material from all grill surfaces before first use. We
recommend operating your grill on its highest setting for 1520 minutes prior to your first use. This aids in removing the
oils used during manufacturing.
Lava Rock / Briquettes
This gas grill has been designed, engineered, and tested to
be used with flame tamers or heat distribution plates to
provide more even heating, improve the cleaning process,
and reduce flare-ups. The addition of after market lava
rocks, charcoal, or briquettes of any type will cause poor
combustion and increase the likelihood of a grease fire, and
is not recommended. Using briquettes, lava rock, or
charcoal in this grill will void your warranty. For extra
smoke flavor, we recommend using a smoker box with wood
chips.
Temperature
The temperature gauge in the hood of your new grill
measures air temperature. The air temperature inside your
grill will never be as hot as the temperature at the cooking
surface.
Note: Since 1995, all regulators (the part that attaches to
the gas tank to regulate the flow of gas) have included a
safety feature that restricts gas flow in the event of a gas
leak. You can inadvertently activate this safety feature
without having a gas leak. This typically occurs when you
turn on the gas using the grill control knob before you turn
on the LP tank valve. If the gas regulator safety feature
activates, the grill will only reach temperatures between
250°F and 300°F even with all burners on the high setting.
Regulator
Coupling Nut
If your grill is not getting hotter than 250°F to 300°F these
steps should be taken first to reset the gas regulator safety
device:
1. Open the grill lid.
2. Turn off all knobs on the control panel in front.
3. Turn off the tank knob.
4. Disconnect the regulator from the LP tank.
5. Wait 30 seconds.
6. Reconnect the regulator to the LP tank.
7. Slowly open the LP tank knob all the way. Do not put
excessive force on the valve at the full open position to
avoid damaging the valve.
8. Turn on the appropriate control knob and light the grill
per the instructions on the control panel.
An illustration of this process is included in this Product
Guide. See Troubleshooting section for additional
information.
Pre-Heating Your Grill
Just like your home oven, your grill should be pre-heated to
provide optimum performance. Pre-heat the grill on high for
10-15 minutes – longer if weather conditions require. Please
refer to the lighting instructions inside the Product Guide if
you have questions about how to light your grill. A matchlight chain and hole is provided for your convenience.

GRILLING GUIDE – Grilling 101
Outdoor grilling is really quite simple. You'll succeed with
burgers, dogs, or steaks usually on your very first try. With
experience, you will learn how to work with your grill,
creating more imaginative meals all the time. This
knowledge makes up the art of grilling. Before you start
grilling, organize your food according to cooking technique
and required cooking time, and optimize the use of your
grilling area.
Rotisserie Cooking
Rotisserie cooking is best for 'round' meat, such as large
roasts, whole poultry, and pork. It generally requires an
accessory motor and spit rod that allows the meat to be
turned at a constant speed. Rotisserie cooking is best done
in front of a special rotisserie burner, or utilizing an indirect
cooking burner arrangement. A pan can be placed
underneath the meat to catch grease and food drippings,
and helps minimize clean-up.
Direct Cooking
Direct cooking involves grilling your meat directly over high
heat. It is perfect for searing steaks, chops, and other
smaller pieces of meat and vegetables that quickly make
their way to the table.
Indirect Cooking
Indirect cooking utilizes select burners to circulate heat
throughout the grill, without direct contact between the
meat and the flame. The meat is placed over the burner
that is 'off'. This method is generally used to slow cook
large cuts of meat and poultry. A pan can be placed
underneath the meat to catch grease and food drippings,
and helps minimize clean-up.
Food Safety
Food safety is a very important part of enjoying the
outdoor cooking experience. To keep food safe from
harmful bacteria, follow these four basic steps:
Clean: Wash hands, utensils, and surfaces with hot soapy
water before and after handling raw meat.
Separate: Separate raw meats from ready-to-eat foods to
avoid cross contamination. Use a clean platter and utensils
when removing cooked foods.
Cook: Cook meat and poultry thoroughly to kill bacteria.
Use a thermometer to ensure proper internal food
temperatures.
Chill: Refrigerate prepared foods and leftovers promptly.

GRILLING GUIDE – Tips & Tricks
Cooking on your new grill is a hands-on experience, and it
is recommended to remain outside with your grill while
cooking. Grilling can be affected by many external
conditions. In cold weather, you will need more heat to
reach an ideal cooking temperature, and grilling may take
longer. The meat's internal temperature and thickness can
also affect cooking times. Cold and thicker meats will take
longer to cook.
Internal Meat Temperatures
Meat cooked on a grill often browns very fast on the
outside. Therefore, use a meat thermometer to ensure it has
reached safe internal temperatures.
Canadian Food Inspection Agency
Recommended Internal cooking tempeaures
Food
Beef, veal and lamb (pieces and whole cuts) medium-rare

casseroles) - beef, veal, lamb and pork
Ground meat and meat mixtures - poultry
Egg dishes
Others (hot dogs, stuffing and leftovers)
Wood Chips
For extra smoke flavor when grilling, try adding wood chips.
Soak the chips in water for approximately 30 minutes
before adding to a smoke box or pan. Place smoke box or
pan on top of the cooking grate above the flame. Turn grill
on high until the wood starts to smoke. Reduce heat to
desired temperature for cooking, and place food on
cooking grate as desired. Close lid to retain more smoke.
Hardwood varieties that work particularly well with grilled
foods include Alder, Apple, Cherry, Grapevines, Hickory,
Mesquite, Oak, Rosemary and Sassafras.

Skewers
Metal skewers should be flat, with long handles. Round
skewers allow food to roll when turned, so it may not cook
as evenly. Use metal skewers when cooking meat kabobs.
Wooden skewers should be soaked in water for an hour
before use, and are best used for quick cooking foods such
as vegetables and fruits.

For more information call : Canadian Food Inspection Agency
Hotline at 1-800-442-2342.
Sauces
Sauces containing sugars and fats can cause flare-ups, and
your food may burn. In general, apply these sauces during
the final 10 minutes of cooking. Keep in mind, use of
excessive sauces or glazes will also require extra cleaning
afterwards.
Marinades and Rubs
To enhance the flavor of grilled foods, a liquid marinade or
dry rub can be used prior to cooking. Meat can be either
soaked or injected with liquid marinade up to 24 hours
prior to grilling. Dry rubs can be applied directly to the
meat immediately before grilling.
Utensils
Use tongs or a spatula to handle the food instead of a fork,
and don't turn the food too
often. Piercing the food
with a fork will release
juices that you want in
the meat, and may
cause flare-ups.

GRILLING GUIDE – Cleaning Your Grill
Why Clean?
We've all heard the saying, “an ounce of prevention is worth
a pound of cure.” This is great advice when it comes to
keeping your grill clean.
Routine Care
Periodic cleaning of this grill is necessary,
as grill fires can occur when grease and
food debris collect in the bottom of the grill.
After each use, remove any remaining
food particles from the cooking grate and
inside of the grill using a grill brush. Do
this after the grill has cooled down, yet is
still warm. It is much easier to clean food
particles while warmth is still present, than
after the food particles have completely
cooled and hardened. This grill is not
designed to be 'burned off' by closing the
lid and turning the burners on High for an
extended time. The excessive heat
generated can cause leftover grease to
catch fire, and can cause permanent
damage to your grill.
Cooking surfaces: If a bristle brush is used to clean any of
the grill cooking surfaces, ensure no loose bristles remain on
cooking surfaces prior to grilling. It is not recommended to
clean cooking surfaces while grill is hot.
Storing Your Grill
• Clean cooking grates.
• Store grill in dry location.
• When LP cylinder is connected to grill, store outdoors in a
well ventilated space and out of reach of children.
• Cover grill if stored outdoors. Choose from a variety of
grill covers offered by manufacturer.
• Store grill indoors ONLY if LP cylinder is turned off,
disconnected, and removed from grill. Never store LP
cylinder indoors.
• When removing grill from storage, follow the 'Cleaning the
Burner Assembly' instructions in the Use and Care section
of the Product Guide.
General Cleaning
Plastic parts: Wash with warm soapy water and wipe dry.
Do not use abrasive cleaners, degreasers or a concentrated
grill cleaner on plastic parts. Damage to and failure of
parts can result.
Porcelain surfaces: Because of glass-like composition, most
residue can be wiped away with baking soda/water
solution or glass cleaner. Use non-abrasive scouring powder
for stubborn stains.
Painted surfaces: Wash with mild detergent or non-abrasive
cleaner and warm water. Wipe dry with a soft non-abrasive
cloth.
Stainless steel surfaces: Stainless steel can rust under certain
conditions. This can be caused by environmental conditions
such as chlorine or salt water, or improper
cleaning tools such as wire or steel
wool. It can also discolor due to heat,
chemicals, or grease build-up. To
maintain your grill's high quality
appearance, wash with mild detergent
and warm water, or use a stainless
steel grill cleaner. Baked-on grease
deposits may require the use of an
abrasive plastic cleaning pad. Use only
in direction of brushed finish to avoid
damage. Do not use abrasive pad on
areas with graphics.
Critters
Spiders like to make their homes in the venturi tubes of
grills. These must be inspected and cleaned regularly to
ensure there are no blockages. Refer to the Use and Care
portion of this Product Guide for complete information.

Burner Flame Check
• Remove cooking grates and heat diffusers. Light
burners, rotate knobs from HIGH to LOW. You should
see a smaller flame in LOW position than seen on
HIGH. Perform burner flame check on sideburner,
also. Always check flame prior to each use. If only
low flame is seen refer to "Sudden drop or low
flame" in the Troubleshooting Section.
HIGH
LOW
Turning Grill Off
• Turn all knobs to the OFF position. Turn LP cylinder
OFF by turning hand-wheel clockwise to a full stop
or turn of NG source.
Ignitor Check
• Turn gas off at LP cylinder or source. Press and hold
electronic ignitor button. "Click" should be heard
and spark seen each time between each collector
box or burner and electrode. See "Troubleshooting"
if no click or spark.
Valve Check
• Important: Make sure gas is off at LP cylinder or
source before checking valves. Knobs lock in OFF
position. To check valves, first push in knobs and
release, knobs should spring back. If knobs do not
spring back, replace valve assembly before using
grill. Turn knobs to LOW position then turn back to
OFF position. Valves should turn smoothly.
Hose Check
• Before each use, check to see if hoses are cut or
worn or kinked. Replace damaged hoses before
using grill. Use only valve/hose/regulator specified
by manufacturer.
General Grill Cleaning
• Do not mistake brown or black accumulation of
grease and smoke for paint. Interiors of gas grills
are not painted at the factory (and should never be
painted). Apply a strong solution of detergent and
water or use a grill cleaner with scrub brush on
insides of grill lid and bottom. Rinse and allow to
completely air dry. Do not apply a caustic grill/oven
cleaner to painted surfaces.
• Plastic parts: Wash with warm soapy water and
wipe dry. Do not use citrisol, abrasive cleaners,
degreasers or a concentrated grill cleaner on plastic
parts. Damage to and failure of parts can result.
• Porcelain surfaces: Because of glass-like composition,
most residue can be wiped away with baking
soda/water solution or specially formulated cleaner.
Use nonabrasive scouring powder for stubborn
stains.
• Painted surfaces: Wash with mild detergent or
nonabrasive cleaner and warm soapy water. Wipe
dry with a soft nonabrasive cloth.
• Stainless steel surfaces: To maintain your grill’s high
quality appearance, wash with mild detergent and
warm soapy water and wipe dry with a soft cloth
after each use. Baked-on grease deposits may
require the use of an abrasive plastic cleaning pad.
Use only in direction of brushed finish to avoid
damage. Do not use abrasive pad on areas with
graphics.
• Cooking surfaces: If a bristle brush is used to clean
any of the grill cooking surfaces, ensure no loose
bristles remain on cooking surfaces prior to grilling.
It is not recommended to clean cooking surfaces
while grill is hot.

CAUTION
SPIDER ALERT!
Important: Always ensure that the venturi burner tubes are clean. A
venturi burner tube has a narrow area in which spiders tend to build
nests.
SPIDER AND WEBS
INSIDE BURNER TUBE
If you notice that your grill is getting hard to light or that the
flame isn’t as strong as it should be, take the time to check and
clean the burner tubes.
VALVE
CONTROL PANEL
SPIDER WEBS
INSIDE VENTURI TUBE
BURNER
Spiders or small insects have been known to create “flashback”
problems. The spiders spin webs, build nests and lay eggs in the
grill’s venturi tube(s) obstructing the flow of gas to the burner.
The backed-up gas can ignite in the burner tube behind the
control panel. This is known as a flashback and it can damage
your grill and even cause injury.
To prevent flashbacks and ensure good performance the burner
and venturi tube assembly should be removed from the grill
and cleaned before use whenever the grill has been idle for an
extended period.
Storing Your Grill
• Clean cooking grates.
• Store in dry location.
• Cover grill if stored outdoors. Choose from a variety
of grill covers offered by manufacturers.
• When removing grill from storage, follow “Cleaning
the Burner Assembly” instructions before starting
grill.
Cleaning the Burner Assembly
Follow these instructions to clean and/or replace parts
of burner assembly or if you have trouble igniting grill.
1. Turn gas OFF at control knobs and LP cylinder.
2. Remove cooking grates and heat diffusers.
3. Remove carryover tubes and burners.
14 • 466226113
4. Detach electrode from burner.
NOTE: Removal/Detachment method will depend
on the burner configuration. See different
configurations in illustrations below.
5. Carefully lift each burner up and away from valve
openings. We suggest three ways to clean the
burner tubes. Use the one easiest for you.
(A) Bend a stiff wire (a light weight coat hanger
works well) into a small hook. Run the hook
through each burner tube several times.
(B) Use a narrow bottle brush with a flexible
handle (do not use a brass wire brush), run the
brush through each burner tube several times.
(C) Wear eye protection: Use an air hose to force
air into the burner tube and out the burner
ports. Check each port to make sure air comes
out each hole.
6. Wire brush entire outer surface of burner to remove
food residue and dirt.
7. Clean any blocked ports with a stiff wire such as an
open paper clip.
8. Check burner for damage, due to normal wear and
corrosion some holes may become enlarged. If any
large cracks or holes are found replace burner.
VERY IMPORTANT: Burner tubes must reengage
valve openings. See illustrations at right.
9. Attach electrode to burner.
10. Carefully replace burners.
11. Attach burners to brackets on firebox.
12. Reposition carryover
Correct
tubes and attach to
burner-to-valve
burners. Replace heat engagement
diffusers and cooking
grates.
