A major cause of fires is failure
to maintain required clearances
(air spaces) to combustible
materials. It is of utmost
importance that this product
be installed only in accordance
with these instructions
50-2615
Safety Precautions
Please read this entire manual before installation and use of
this pellet fuel-burning appliance. Failure to follow these
instructions could result in property damage, bodily injury or
even death.
Contact local building or fire officials about restrictions and installation inspection
requirements in your area
Your pellet grill lights DIFFERENTLY from other grills
You must follow the included lighting instructions (pg.8) in order to prevent damage to your grill
and achieve desired lighting results.
When opening your grill at high temperature (400OF), it is important to lift the lid slowly preventing
any hot smoke from burning your hand. Always use protective heat resistant gloves.
When handling hot ceramics or cooking surfaces, use appropriate protection to avoid burning
injuries. Always use caution when setting hot items on other surfaces.
Keep your pellets DRY
Do not use wet pellets. Keep your spare pellets in a dry environment where they won’t absorb
excess moisture.
After first use, INSPECT all fasteners for tightness
The metal band on the Black Olive is designed to keep the top of your grill secure. Due to
temperature changes causing expansion and contraction, checking the tightness of these fittings
after the first few uses is highly recommended.
DO NOT use water to clean the inside of your grill
The ceramics are porous and will absorb the water. Your grill is self-cleaning. Simply close the
lid after use, allowing any food residue to burn off and carbonize. At the beginning of your next
cook, scrape off the carbon remnants from the cooking surface with a wire brush.
Disposal of ashes
Ashes should be placed in a metal container with a tight-fitting lid. The closed container of ashes
should be placed on a non-combustible floor or on the ground, well away from all combustible
materials, pending final disposal. When the ashes are disposed of by burial in soil or otherwise
locally dispersed, they should be retained in the closed container until all cinders have thoroughly
cooled.
DO NOT use accessories not specified for use with this appliance

Safety Precautions
Follow these guidelines to prevent this colourless, odourless gas from poisoning you,
your family or others.
•Know the symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning: headache, dizziness, weakness, nausea,
vomiting, sleepiness, and confusion. Carbon monoxide reduces the blood’s ability to carry
oxygen. Low blood oxygen levels can result in loss of conciousness and death.
•See a doctor if you or others develop cold or flu-like symptoms while cooking or in the vicinity
of this appliance. Carbon Monoxide poisoning, which can easily be mistaken for a cold or flu,
is often detected too late
•Alcohol consumption and drug use increases the effects of carbon monoxide poisoning
Carbon monoxide is especially toxic to mother and child during pregnancy, infants,
the elderly, smokers, and people with blood circulatory system problems, such as
anemia, or heart disease.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
read all instructions before installing and using the appliance
Before installing your Black Olive Grill insure that all of the fasteners have been correctly
tightened.
Your Black Olive Grill is rated for OUTDOOR USE ONLY. The grill must always be placed
outdoors, away from structures and NEVER inside or in proximity to an enclosed area.
Be aware of any local bylaws that may specify a required distance between outdoor
cookers and any structures, or that may limit outdoor flame of any type during drought or
fire hazard periods.
PULL, DON’T PUSH: When moving your grill lift on opposite side of wheels and roll. The
grill is not designed to roll over uneven terrain such as gravel, or be rolled on soft terrain.
Always make sure you have an extra pair of hands.
Make sure your Black Olive Grill has the correct clearances from any combustible materials
from the back of the unit as well as each side (see Figure 19).
Always place and use your Black Olive Grill in a SAFE and LEVEL spot. DO NOT place
the grill on slopes, uneven surfaces, or under any unprotected combustible materials within
36” from the top of the grill.
ALWAYS store your wood pellets in a dry location away from any heat-producing appliances
and other fuel containers.
DO NOT store pellets in the grill’s hopper when it is not in use if it is kept in an area of high
moisture or humidity. These conditions will cause the pellets to swell inside the grill and clog
the hopper tube (see Troubleshooting Section).

LIGHTING INSTRUCTIONS
ALWAYS REMOVE THE GRILL COVER BEFORE LIGHTING THE GRILL
Fuel Type: Use only food grade wood pellet fuel with a low ash content. DO NOT use pellet
fuel labeled as having additives
To Start Grill: Empty ash pan and check burn
tube bottom holes for blockage (see Figure 22).
Fill the hopper with food grade pellets (see Figure
20), then turn knob to START position. If the auger
needs to be primed, turn knob to HIGH position for
5 min, then back to START position (see Figure 21).
Note: When starting the grill in a damp environment,
set the control knob to LOW, not START, until a
fire has been established.
To Operate Pellet Grill: When a fire has been
established set the control knob to the desired
setting.
Figure 20
To Turn Off: Turn the control knob to the OFF position. The fuel will stop and the fan will stay
running until the fire is out. DO NOT unplug the grill until it has completely cooled down.
CAUTION: Improper Use Can Cause Uncontrolled Fire. This appliance is intended to
burn food grade pellets only. Never use gasoline, gasoline-type lantern fuel, kerosene, charcoal
lighter fluid, or similar liquids to start or ‘freshen up’ a fire in this appliance. Keep all such liquids
well away from the appliance when in use.
If Fire Occurs: Call fire department. DO NOT try to move appliance, smother the fire, or put
water on the fire.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
For Your Safety, Read Safety Precautions And
Lighting Instructions Before Operating
When grilling or searing food, push the smoke switch (see Figure 21 on previous page) to GRILL
and set the control knob to the desired setting. The approximate temperature range in
‘Grill Mode’ is 250°F (LOW) to 650°F (HIGH).
When a lower consistent temperature is desired for smoking purposes push the smoke switch
to SMOKE and set the control knob to the desired setting. The approximate temperature
range in ‘Smoke Mode’ is 150°F (LOW) to 250°F (HIGH).
The length of fuel (pellets) used can greatly affect the temperature of your grill. The recommended
pellet length should be no longer than 1” (25.4cm). Longer pellets have a slower feed rate that
cause the grill to burn colder. When changing or refilling pellets be aware of the average length
and adjust your grill setting accordingly.
The temperature ranges below can be used as an approximate guide when using your grill:
Smoking 150°F - 250°F
Grilling 250°F - 500°F
Searing 500°F - 650°F
DO NOT attempt to move your Black Olive Grill when it is hot or while cooking.
DO USE CAUTION when touching exterior of grill: Exterior surfaces are HOT when in use.
Always keep children, pets, and combustible items away from your grill.
DO USE CAUTION when removing hot cooking surfaces including the cooking grate(s) or pizza
stone from your grill. Always use protective gloves and gripping tools to avoid burns. Never set
hot items on or near combustible surfaces.
DO NOT leave your grill unattended with the lid open while lit. Be aware OF FIRE HAZARDS
(dry leaves, decking and other combustible materials) that may be in proximity to the grill while
it is in use as they may present a fire hazard if any sparks are allowed to come into contact (see
Installation Instructions).
Always cover your grill with the supplied grill cover when it is not in use. DO NOT put the grill
cover back on until the outside of the grill has completely cooled down.
THE BLACK OLIVE PELLET GRILL IS SAFE AND HAZARD FREE WHEN USED AS
INTENDED AND ACCORDING TO SAFETY GUIDELINES, AND WILL PROVIDE YEARS
OF TROUBLE-FREE USE AND ENJOYMENT.
IT IS THE USERS RESPONSIBILITY TO MAINTAIN SAFE OPERATION OF THE GRILL
AND TO EXERCISE REASONABLE STANDARDS OF CARE AT ALL TIMES.

bottom underneath the grill. Failure to keep the burn tube clean and holes
unblocked can result in unwanted sooting.
1. If the grill is running, turn off and allow it to completely cool down.
2. Using protective gloves, remove the ash pan from underneath
the grill.
3. Ensure there are no live ashes and empty the ash pan.
4. Inspect the attached burn tube bottom for any clogged
holes (see Figure 22) and clean with a wire brush.
5. Re-install the ash pan underneath the grill
Burn Tube Bottom
HOPPER & AUGER TUBES:
Occasionally you should clean out the grill’s hopper
and auger tubes to prevent any debris from building up.
A cleaning should only be done when the hopper is empty. Figure 22
If the auger or hopper tube is clogged see the troubleshooting section.
1. If the grill is running, turn off and allow it to completely
cool down. Once the fan has stopped running unplug the
grill from the electrical outlet.
2. Place a container underneath the hopper cleanout to catch
any excess fuel that may spill out.
3. Unlatch and open the hopper cleanout cover located on
the right side of the grill’s base (see Figure 23).
4. Use a vacuum to clean any remaining debris out of both
the auger and hopper tubes.
5. Close and re-latch hopper cleanout cover. Plug the grill back
Figure 23
into the outlet.
FULL UNIT CLEANOUT:
To preserve the ideal grilling setup and prevent any unwanted sooting it is recommended to
complete a full unit cleanout after every 20-25lbs. of fuel burnt.
1. If the grill is running, turn off and allow it to completely cool down. Once the fan has stopped
running unplug the grill from the electrical outlet.
2. Complete steps 2-4 as outlined in the Ash Pan & Burn Tube Bottom section above.

4. Open the grill and, using protective gloves, remove the cooking grill as well as any accessories
that are inside i.e. pizza stone/heat deflector, double grill etc.
5. Remove the flame diffuser at the bottom of the shell (see Figure 24) and inspect the open
burn tube for any blockages or ash buildup.
6. Position a container underneath the grill directly below the burn tube and, using a brush,
sweep off any ash that has accumulated on the stainless steel heat deflector (see Figure 24
on next page) into the open burn tube.
7. Clean out the drop tube, on the side of the burn tube, by using an unfolded wire coat hanger
to free up any ash buildup that has accumulated.
8. Re-latch the hopper cleanout cover and re-install the ash pan, flame diffuser, cooking grill
and any accessories.

GRILL BANDS:
Check the position and tightness of the bands at the beginning of each grilling season or annually.
If the bands are in the proper position use two 7/16” wrenches to check the tightness of each
band connector. You should not be able to easily turn the wrench while holding the nut in place.
If loose, tighten firmly.
MOLD:
If the Black Olive Grill is subjected to the elements for an extended length of time and not used,
moisture can be trapped inside the grill and areas of mold may appear on the grill’s internal
ceramics. Start the grill and let it cook on High for 30 minutes to kill any mold that has formed.
Turn the grill off and, after it has cooled, take a wire brush and scrape off any left over mold.
DO NOT USE BLEACH OR OTHER CLEANING PRODUCTS.
GASKET REPLACEMENT:
The lid gasket may degrade over time, and depending on your use, may need to be replaced
every 1-2 years. A replacement gasket can be purchased through your local Black Olive Dealer.
HEAT DEFLECTOR/PIZZA STONE: The heat deflector/pizza stone should only be cleaned in
the manner as described.
1. Allow ceramics to cool completely before cleaning or storage.
2. Scrape or wipe off food material with a brush or clean dry cloth after each use, and store
indoors in a dry location.
DO NOT place on tables or surfaces that are not heat resistant
DO NOT use to cook with on a stove top
DO NOT season with olive oil or other cooking oils
DO NOT use cleaning chemicals or soap and water
DO NOT soak in water. It will retain water, which may cause it to crack with the next use.
