GRILLING Charcoal is recommended, however, wood or a combination of both may be used as the fuel source for grilling with the fuel source placed and ignited on the charcoal grate. Do not build too large of a fire. We recommend starting a fire with no more than 10 briquettes and adding more as needed during cooking. After allowing the fire to burn down, place the cooking grate on the unit. Failure to read and follow instructions for lighting charcoal may result in serious personal injury and/or property damage. GRILL MAINTENANCE Frequency of clean up is determined by how often the grill is used. Make sure coals are completely extinguished before cleaning inside of the unit. Thoroughly rinse with water and allow to air dry before using again. Wipe out the interior of the unit with a cloth or paper towels. When finished cooking, and the unit has adequately cooled, clean out all remaining ashes. Ashes collect moisture, which can lead to premature rusting and decay. Also, occasional touch up of the exterior paint will be required. Black, hightemperature spray paint is recommended. NEVER PAINT THE INTERIOR OF THE UNIT. Cooking Surface: 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. COOKING TIPS Building Your Fire 1.) Stack charcoal briquettes or wood into a pyramid-shaped pile on top of the charcoal grate. We recommend using 10 briquettes to start your fire, adding more as needed. 2.) If using lighter fluid, saturate the charcoal briquettes with lighter fluid and let it soak in for approximately 5 minutes. If using a chimney starter, electric starter, or other type of fire starter, light your fire according to the manufacturer's instructions. 3.) After allowing the lighter fluid to properly soak in, light the pile of briquettes in several locations to ensure an even burn. Always light the fire with the grill lid open. Leave lid open until briquettes are fully lit. Failure to do this could trap fumes from charcoal lighter fluid in grill and may result in a flash fire when lid is opened. 4.) Never add charcoal lighter fluid to hot or warm coals as flashbacks may occur causing injury. 5.) You are ready to begin cooking when the pile of briquettes ashes over and produces a red glow (approximately 12 – 15 minutes). 6.) Depending on your cooking method, either leave the briquettes in a pile or spread evenly across the charcoal grate using a long-handled poker. *Always use caution when handling hot coals to prevent injury. Page 3 Know When Your Fire is Ready Successful charcoal grilling depends on a good fire. The general rule for knowing when your coals are ready for grilling is to make sure that 80 percent or more of the coals are ashy gray. If you have less than that, the coals are not ready, and if all of them are glowing red hot, the fire is probably too hot. Here are a few steps you can take to adjust the temperature of your fire: If it is too hot, spread the coals out a bit more, which makes the fire less intense. Partially close the vents in the grill, which reduces the amount of oxygen that feeds the fire. Use the indirect grilling method, with coals to either side of the charcoal grate and the food over the other side rather than directly over the coals. In the event of a severe flare-up, spray the flames with water from a squirt bottle. Be careful, spraying with water tends to blow ashes around and make a mess. Add briquettes 2 or 3 at a time to increase the burn time. Allow 10 minutes for coals to ash over before adding more. THE HEAT OF THE COALS seconds you can hold the palm of your hand 4 inches above the coals Page 4 temperature range (Fº) 400 to 450 visual cues HOT COALS 2 MODERATELY HOT TO HOT COALS 3 MODERATELY HOT COALS 4 325 to 375 significant coating of gray ash; red glow MODERATELY COOL COALS 5 300 to 325 thick coating of gray ash; dull red glow 375 to 450 barely covered with gray ash; deep red glow thin coating of gray ash; deep red glow Direct and Indirect Grilling Direct Grilling - For most grilling, the ignited coals are spread in a single layer under the food. This is called direct grilling and is appropriate for relatively quick-cooking items such as hamburgers, steaks and most seafood. The single layer of coals emits even, steady heat, whether the grill lid is open or closed, and represents the way most people grill. For more control, pile some of the coals on one side of the grill where they will emit intense heat. You can move the food around on the grill, setting it over the very hot coals when you want to sear it or when a thick piece needs to cook a little more quickly. You can also use the dampers to control the temperature in your grill. Indirect Grilling - For items that take longer to cook, you will want to use indirect grilling. This method is for long, slow cooking in a covered grill. For indirect cooking, the coals are piled on one side of the grill, or divided and piled on two sides. This leaves an empty space next to the coals or between them. Food cooked over indirect heat is often started over direct heat and then moved to the cooler (empty) part of the grill for even, slow cooking. To make the heat as even as possible, construct two piles of coals. (Remember to keep a spray bottle filled with water on hand to extinguish any flare-ups.) Once you get used to the indirect method, you may prefer to use it for more grilling tasks. Although it may take a little longer, it is an excellent cooking method and a sure way to prevent the food from burning and to promote even cooking. Grilling with Wood Chips/Wood Chunks For a more robust smoke flavor while using charcoal briquettes or lump charcoal, try adding wood chips or several wood chunks to the fire. Wood chunks are available in a variety of natural flavors, and can be used alone or in addition to charcoal. As a general rule, any hardwood that bears a fruit or nut is suitable for cooking. However, different woods have very different tastes. Experiment with different woods to determine your personal favorite, and always use well-seasoned wood. Green or fresh-cut wood can turn food black, and tastes bitter.
