LTR50001038, Rev. E
Proper Location of the Grill
When planning your Cal Flame grill location, access
to gas lines and 110V power supplies should be
considered. If you are using natural gas, the location
with the shortest gas line run is recommended. You
may need a grounded, dedicated, 15A 110V GFCI
power source for use of your appliances (e.g. lights,
rotisserie, refrigerator, receptacles, etc.).
When determining a suitable location, consider factors
such as exposure to wind, proximity to traffic paths,
and windows that open into the home.
Locate the grill enclosure any place where there is
adequate ventilation. The size and configuration of
your house and yard will determine how you should
locate your grill enclosure, but as a general rule, do
not place it under or near windows that can be opened
into your home. Ventilation is address in greater detail
in the next section.
The sides, bottom and back of the grill enclosure
should not be any closer than 24” to combustible
To reduce the risk of personal injury caused by
reaching over a hot appliance, avoid locating cabinet
storage space directly above the outdoor grill.
Cal Flame grills are designed for outdoor use
Carbon Monoxide Hazard
This appliance can produce carbon
monoxide which has no odor.
Using it in an enclosed
space can kill you.
Never use this appliance in
an enclosed space such as a
camper, tent, car, or home.
Ensuring Proper Ventilation
Do not locate your barbecue island in an enclosed
area, which is any covered area that is walled on two,
three, or four sides. This includes areas or rooms such
as a garage, shed, breezeway, patio, cabana, etc.
Although some enclosed areas may have
windows, screens, or ventilation systems, they
are nevertheless considered to be hazardous
and may cause damage, injury,
or death. Enclosed areas are NOT
approved for a barbecue island.
Do not locate your barbecue island under a sealed
overhead structure. Acceptable overhead structures
allow for airflow, such as screen or lattice.
You can install an awning over your barbecue island,
provided you make sure it is high enough to prevent
damage or fire. We recommend a minimum overhead
distance of six feet from the top of the grill hood.
• Solid foundation
• Open on three sides
• Minimum distance of
six feet overhead from
combustible material
• Overhead is not sealed
• Not placed near windows
• No overhead storage
• No combustible materials
stored nearby

Proper Location of the Grill
Here are some general considerations when
determining where to place your new barbecue island.
Be certain that your installation will meet all city and
local safety codes and requirements.
Built-in Construction
Note: The terms “built-in construction” and “grill
enclosure” as used in these instructions refer to any
method for installing a barbecue island for use. A
barbecue island is both built-in constructions and a grill
enclosure. Read these instruction before constructing
your grill enclosure.
The Cal Flame charcoal grill is expected to be used
with a Cal Flame barbecue island. If the grill is not
placed in a Cal Flame barbecue island, it must be used
in a safe manner that will not void your warranty. If
you plan to do this, use the information in this section
on the construction and materials required for the grill
enclosure and its proper location. Cal Flame wishes
our customers to enjoy our products safely. We
strongly recommend that grill owners hire a contractor
to construct the built-in enclosure.
Failure to follow these instructions may result in voiding
your warranty, property damage, injury, or death.
Construction materials
LMS Inc. will not be held responsible for property damage, injury, or death as a result of locating
a grill enclosure in a non-approved location or using non-approved construction materials.
DO NOT use combustible materials for the built-in construction.
Acceptable building materials: Brick,
cinder block, steel frame, hardiboard,
granite, tile, glass brick, concrete, cement,
stucco, stone.
Unacceptable building materials: Wood
of any sort, laminate or synthetic materials,
plastics, linoleum, fiberglass.
In addition, we do not recommend using materials that are susceptible to damage or decomposition by weather,
such as dry wall or plaster.
Built-in Dimensions
Your Cal Flame grill is designed for easy installation
into a non-combustible enclosure. The supporting
deck or counter must be flat and level.
9 ¼”
Convection Grills
LTR50001038, Rev. E
You will need a second person to help you to avoid damaging the grill or your barbecue island.
Before installing a grill in any island or cut out, make sure that the opening is not bigger than the outside frame
of the grill unit. The grill should rest on the lip of the frame.
Keep your fingers away from where the grill will be supported on counter. Your fingers could become trapped
and serious injury could occur.
Check to make sure the grill is level and is supported around the entire outside edge. If the grill is not level or
is unstable, use non-combustible shims under the outside lip to stabilize it.

Gas and Power Requirements
Using Your Grill
Read all instructions before you operate your grill.
We recommend you wash your entire grill with soap and water prior to lighting it for the first time. Oils are
used during the manufacturing process and some residual oil may still be on the stainless steel parts of your
grill. Washing will reduce the possibility of discoloration. We also recommend you keep your grill covered when
not in use. This will minimize the amount of dust and dirt that accumulates on your grill and extend the life of
your grill.
Lighting Instructions
NEVER use flammable materials and fluids such as gasoline, kerosene, butane or propane, diesel fuel, or alcohol
to light or re-light fires. Keep the grill away from such substances when lit.
Use high quality hardwood charcoal to ensure a good flame. Charcoal briquettes made from maple, oak, birch,
or elm woods will burn cleanly, minimizing smoke and unpleasant odors.
Make sure the drip tray is in place.
Allow the grill to cool and clean the drip tray after each use.
Do not leave the grill unattended while cooking.
1. Open the hood and remove cooking grates.
2. Place charcoal on the ashtray at the bottom of grill and arrange charcoal in a pyramid shaped stack.
3. Add charcoal lighting fluid according to manufacturer’s instructions. Let it stand for about a minute to let
fluid penetrate charcoal.
4. Carefully light charcoal, allowing it to burn approximately 15 to 20 minutes or until a light gray ash
Leave about a one-half inch space between each piece of charcoal. This helps to avoid flare-ups from the meat
juices and provides the even heat best suited for grilling.
NEVER allow children or pets unattended in an area where a grill is being used. Never allow children to sit,
stand or play on or around the grill at any time. When in use, certain areas of the grill get hot enough to cause
severe burns.
Leave the hood open for “Texas Style” open air grilling. Close the hood for “smoker” cooking.
For the greatest concentration of heat, leave the hood open. Adjust the crank handle to lift the charcoal tray
up so the burning charcoal will be close to the grilling meat. Lower the charcoal tray to lower the grilling

Cleaning and Maintenance
Clean internal parts of the grill regularly as determined by the amount of use and foods cooked. The entire
grill should be cleaned at least once a year.
In addition, keep the area around your grill clear and free from combustible materials, gasoline, and other
flammable vapors and liquids.
These instructions describe the best way to care for
your stainless steel. Although stainless steel grills
will discolor and accumulate grime with regular
use, they can keep their original shine with periodic
cleaning. We strongly recommend using a surface
protectant to prevent smudging and surface rust from
The easiest way to clean the grill is immediately after
cooking is completed. Doing so will extend the life of
your grill, prevent grease fires, and present a pleasant
appearance while you grill.
All exposed stainless steel surfaces require special
attention if you want to keep them looking clean and
bright. Following these simple instructions will help
avoid scratching or damaging the finish and keep your
stainless steel attractive.
Cleaning instructions for grill interiors, including racks
and burners, are described after this section.
Cleaning Products and Materials
DO NOT USE these common cleaning products and
materials – they will damage the surface of your
stainless steel.
Oven cleaner
Cleansers such as Ajax or Comet
Steel wool pads
Wire brushes
We recommend these products for cleaning your
stainless steel:
Mild dish detergent such as Dawn
Formula 409
Instant Rust Out (exterior ONLY)
WD-40 (exterior ONLY)
Sheila Shine (exterior ONLY)
We have had best success with Instant Rust Out,
but WD-40 works very well too. Instant Rust Out is
available in some hardware stores. WD-40 is widely
Covering Your Grill
When not in use and after cooling, cover your grill with our full length, zippered side canvas cover. (See your
local Cal Flame dealer for details.) The cover will help protect your grill from detrimental effects of weather and
environmental pollutants. Never put a cover on a hot grill. Allow the grill to cool before covering.

Cleaning and Maintenance
To ensure safe and proper maintenance, we recommend you follow these directions carefully.
Cleaning and Maintenance
Stainless Steel Care and Cleaning
Baking soda, lemon oil, olive oil, vinegar, or club
soda can also be effective for cleaning light soil on all
stainless steel surfaces.
Do not use steel wool or wire brushes to
scrub your grill.
For light soil, use a damp sponge or cloth.
For heavier stains, use a Scotch-Brite scrubber or
similar product.
1. Clean
Thoroughly clean stains, food, and grime using
a sponge or damp cloth with warm water and a
mild dish soap. Use Fantastik or Formula 409 to
remove heavier soil.
2. Rinse
Thoroughly rinse all surfaces and dry them
completely with a clean towel. Do not allow
stainless steel to air dry.
3. Polish
We strongly recommend that you apply a surface
protectant to all exposed stainless steel surfaces.
Spray a small amount of WD-40 or Sheila Shine on a
piece of paper towel and rub with the grain over the
surface of the appliance. Using a clean terry cloth or
paper towel, polish the appliance by rubbing with the
grain until excess liquid is removed and the surface
shines. It should not be oily to the touch, however
some residue is acceptable.
Furniture polish, such as Old English, can be effective
for polishing stainless steel and protecting the
Do not use Instant Rust Out, WD-40,
or Sheila Shine near food or on food
preparation surfaces as it is a health hazard.
This includes the interior of the grill, grill
Caution racks, stainless steel sinks, the inside of
cabinets, warming drawers, and ovens.
NEVER spray WD-40 or Sheila Shine
near an open flame! These products
are extremely flammable while in their
Hazard aerosol forms.
Rust Removal
It is a common misconception that stainless steel does
not rust. It does not stain, corrode, or rust as easily
as ordinary steel (it stains less), but it is not stainproof. If not properly protected and maintained, it can
corrode, pit, and discolor.
There are two
1. Rust removal with Instant Rust Out:
Spray exterior stainless steel surfaces with Instant
Rust Out. Let it stand for about 30 seconds, then wipe
with a clean cloth. Apply a second time if necessary.
Instant Rust Out will leave a white residue which can
be rinsed off with water. Wipe the grill dry with a clean
cloth and apply Sheila Shine or WD-40 as a surface
2. Rust removal with WD-40 or Sheila Shine:
Spray exterior stainless steel surfaces with WD-40 or
Sheila Shine and wipe down with a dry cloth or paper
towel until surface is free of rust. If there is significant
rust or corrosion, use a Scotch-Brite scrubber.
Both of these products will act as a surface protectant
and help resist smudges, stains, and rust.
Because salt will accelerate rust and
corrosion, grill or barbecue island
owners who live near the beach need to
Important be diligent in maintaining their stainless
steel hardware. You need to clean and
polish your stainless steel frequently,
apply a protectant, and ensure water
does not collect and puddle.
Although nitric acid (also called aqua
fortis) can be effective for rust removal, it
is a highly corrosive chemical. Because of
the potential for injury or damage to your
Caution stainless steel, we do not recommend
using nitric acid.
Convection Grills
LTR50001038, Rev. E
Thoroughly clean stains, food, and grime using a sponge or damp cloth with warm water and a mild dish soap.
Use Fantastik or Formula 409 to remove heavier soil.
Thoroughly rinse all surfaces and dry them completely with a clean towel. Do not allow water to accumulate
and puddle on stainless steel. Water from various sources such as garden hoses contains iron which will give
the appearance of rusting on stainless steel. If allowed to stand for long periods of time on stainless steel, it
will cause pitting.
Cooking Grates
The racksbars can all be removed for cleaning and
are dishwasher safe.
To prevent burns or injury, make sure the griddle is
completely cool before cleaning.
Use a solution equal parts detergent and hot water
just as you would for any cooking equipment. A
stiff wire brush or steel wool may also be helpful in
removing grime and food deposits.
The griddle is made from non-magnetic, 304 grade
stainless steel. There are various stainless steel
cleaners available. Always use the mildest cleaning
procedure first, and always scrub in the direction of
the grain. Use soapy water for most cleaning. A nonabrasive scrubber may also be helpful in removing
grime and food deposits. Steel wool may be used for
especially difficult spots. Wipe all areas dry before
Do not use a wire brush or stainless steel
on any other part of your grill or any
other stainless steel surface except the
cooking grates or the griddle!
Charcoal Pan
For your safety, make sure unit is cool and wood and
charcoal embers completely extinguished before
Remove the ashes as soon as possible after each
use. Wait until the charcoal has cooled, slide out
the drip pan and pour out the ashes. You can save
the larger pieces of charcoal for the next time you
cook. Use a garden hose to wash out accumulated
grease and ashes. Allow the drip pan to dry before
reinserting into the grill.
Steam Cleaning Your Grill
Steam cleaning the interior of your grill is very
effective and will not void your warranty. Portable
hand-held steam cleaners are inexpensive and do
not require chemicals. You can steam clean all parts
of your Cal Flame grill, including the burners. When
you are finished, make sure you wipe all surfaces
If you spray the burners, ignite them and let them
burn for about 10 minutes to prevent any water
from accumulating inside them.
Drip Pan
The full width drip pan will collect grease from the
main grill area. The pan should be cleaned after
every use to avoid the possibility of a grease fire. Be
sure to allow the drip pan to cool prior to cleaning.
You may clean the drip pan with a solution of warm
soapy water. Make sure to rinse thoroughly to avoid
