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.

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.

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.
