OPERATING YOUR LP GAS GRILL
· Never fill the LP gas cylinder more than 80% of
CONNECTING/DISCONNECTING THE GAS
cylinder volume. (20 lb. maximum) Do not ask the
propane supplier to over-fill the cylinder.
· If you obtain LP gas through a cylinder exchange
dealer, make sure you get a safe and adequate O.P.D.
cylinder. (See page 22) Use only a licensed LP gas
cylinder dealer.
USING GAS
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 indoors, on recreational
vehicles, or boats.
To reduce the risk of serious bodily injury or death:
· Use only propane gas in this LP gas grill.
· Do not attempt to convert an LP unit to natural gas.
· Any use or alteration of this unit not intended could be
unsafe and will void your warranty.
· Always use a gas appliance outdoors in an open area
with good ventilation to avoid breathing toxic fumes
from leaking gas, explosion or fire. As with all
conventional fuels, the burning process consumes
oxygen and produces toxic gases, including carbon
monoxide. In addition, the combustion products of
such fuels, including liquefied petroleum (LP), contain
chemicals known to the state of California and other
authorities to cause cancer, birth defects and other
reproductive harm.
LP GAS CYLINDER
To reduce the risk of serious bodily injury, fire or death:
· Read and follow all warnings on LP gas cylinder.

outside in a well-ventilated space.
· Do not use an LP gas cylinder if it shows signs of
dents, gouges, bulges, fire damage, corrosion,
leakage, excessive rust or other forms of visual
external damage; it may be hazardous and should be
checked by a liquid propane supplier. Do not use an
LP cylinder with a damaged valve.
· Do not store a spare LP gas cylinder under or near
the LP gas grill.
· When grill is not in use, turn off all grill control knobs,
LP cylinder valve and disconnect LP cylinder.
· The LP gas cylinder, for use with this LP gas grill, must meet
the following requirements:
1) 12” diameter x 18” tall, 20 lb.. maximum capacity
2) Overfill Protection Device (OPD) safety feature (should
be noted on cylinder)
3) Must be constructed and marked in accordance with
Specifications for LP-Gas Cylinders of the U.S.
Department of Transportation (DOT) or the National
Standard of Canada, CAN\CSA-B339, Cylinders,
spheres and Tubes for Transportation of Dangerous
Goods; and Commission, as applicable (See collar for
marking)
4) Must have collar to protect LP cylinder valve.
LP HOSE AND REGULATOR
To reduce the risk of serious bodily injury or death:
· Clean and inspect the gas hose/regulator before each
use of the outdoor cooking gas appliance. The gas
hose/regulator must be replaced prior to being used, if
there is evidence of excessive abrasion or wear, or if
the hose is cut or leaks.
· Use only the gas hose/regulator assembly that has been
supplied with this gas grill. Do not use hose/regulator
from another manufacturer.
· Always check for gas leaks when you connect and
disconnect the hose/regulator to the LP gas cylinder,
especially after a period of storage (for example, over
winter).
· Make sure there are no sharp bends in the hose.
· Make sure hose/regulator does not contact any heated
surfaces.
· If the hose/regulator assembly is not working properly and
you need a replacement, contact the manufacturer
(1-800-251-7558). Be sure to specify your grill model.

MANUAL LIGHTING THE GRILL
To reduce the risk of serious bodily injury or death:
· Open Hood before lighting the grill to prevent an
explosion from any gas accumulation.
· If lighting attempts fail, or the burners go out during
operation, turn all control knobs “Off” to dissipate any
accumulation of gas. Accidental ignition could occur.
Wait five minutes before repeating lighting procedure.
· Light both left and right sides of burner to prevent gas
from accumulating.
· When reaching under the grill, avoid contact with hot
surfaces.
1. Open the Hood.
2. Important: Make sure control knobs are turned “Off”.
(See FIG. 13A)
3. Turn the LP Gas Cylinder valve open counter
clockwise until it stops. (See FIG. 13B)
4. Insert a lit match through match-lighting hole
underneath the grill bowl on the right side. (FIG. 14A)
Hold the flame near the burner. (FIG. 14B)
5. Push in and turn the right main burner control knob
counterclockwise to the “High” position. (See FIG. 13C
& 13D)
6. From the “Off” position, push left control knob in and
turn counterclockwise to the High position. Your grill
has a crossover ignition system that allows the
burner to light each side successively. Make sure the
left side of burner is lit.
7. If either side of burner fails to light, repeat Step 4 & 5.
If any or all burners fail to light after three or four
attempts following Steps 4-5, turn all knobs to the
“Off” position and close the LP gas cylinder valve to
dissipate any accumulated gas. Wait five minutes;
then repeat the lighting procedures. NOTE: If the
burner still fails to light, refer to the Troubleshooting
Section.
8. After ignition, turn the control knobs to “High” for 3-5
minutes and close the Hood to preheat the grill.
Preheat the grill before every cooking session.
If a burner goes out during operation, turn all knobs to
the “Off” position and close the LP cylinder valve to
dissipate any accumulated gas. Open hood and wait
five minutes before attempting to relight the grill.

FIG. 14B
CHECK YOUR FLAME
Your burners have been preset by the manufacturer for
optimal flame performance. A blue flame, possibly with a
small yellow tip, is the result of the optimal air and gas
mixture. (FIG. 15)
Yellow Tip
FIG. 15
Primarily Blue
Flame
Check the flame before each cooking session and throughout
the grilling season. Always check especially after long periods
of storing the grill. If the flame is significantly yellow in color,
the amount of LP gas in the air/LP gas mixture is not correct.
This could be due to a blocked burner from grease drippings
or from insects building a nest inside the burner or burner
opening. See How to Clean the Burners.
GRILL COOKING
To reduce the risk of serious bodily injury, death or grill
damage:
· Always make sure the Grease Cup is empty and
properly installed in the wire ring under the Bowl before
cooking to prevent a grease fire .
· Do not leave any utensils on a hot Cooking Grid or
cookware.
Cooking on the Grids: The burners heat up the Flame
Diffusers under the Cooking Grids, which in turn heat the food
on the grill. The natural food juices from cooking fall onto the
hot Flame Diffusers below and vaporize. Rising smoke bastes
the food, giving it that unique barbecued flavor.
CAUTION
· Do not preheat grids over 5 minutes. The porcelain coating
could be damaged.
· Use only long-handled heat resistant plastic or wooden
utensils to avoid scratching the porcelain coating.
FIG. 14A
16
WARMING RACK
Warming racks are a convenient way to keep cooked food
warm or to warm items such as bread or rolls. When opening
the hood, be alert of dripping fat from the warming rack which
could then drip onto the barbecue causing a mess. Always
check that your warming rack is properly fitted before use.
ROASTING COOKING
To avoid burns from the hot air and steam trapped
inside:
· Open the hood carefully when grill roasting.
Closing the Hood forms an ‘oven’ and traps a large amount of
heat for roasting whole meats, chickens, etc. Therefore, it is
IMPORTANT that the burner is turned to the “Low “ position to
prevent burning of the food.
To contain juices and fat, place the food to bake or roast in a
metal baking tray. Monitor the cooking temperature and time
with a meat thermometer. Avoid lifting the hood frequently as
heat is lost each time.
OPERATING THE GAS GRILL
To reduce the risk of serious bodily injury or death:
· Never use charcoal in your gas grill. Keep this outdoor
cooking appliance clear and free from combustible
materials, gasoline and other flammable vapors and
liquids.
· Remove grill covers and store at least 36 inches from
the LP gas grill while in use. Grill covers are made of
a flammable material. Allow the grill to completely
cool before putting the cover back on the grill.
· Keep any electrical supply cord and regulator hose
away from any heated surfaces.
· Do not operate a gas grill if you are aware of or
suspect a gas leak.
· Make sure there are no gas leaks or obstructions to the
flow of combustion and ventilation air before each use.
· Keep the ventilation openings of the LP cylinder
enclosure free and clear from debris.
· Always open the hood before lighting the LP gas grill
to prevent an explosion from accumulation of gas.
· Do not use the grill without the Drip Cup in place.
Empty excess grease to avoid a fire under the grill.
· If you notice grease or other hot material dripping
from the grill onto the valve, hose, or regulator, turn
off the gas supply immediately. After the grill has
cooled, determine the cause and correct it. After
cleaning the valve and hose and regulator assembly,
perform a leak test before continuing use. (See
Performing a Leak Test.)
17
· Do not attempt to extinguish a grease fire with water
or other liquids. Have an BC fire extinguisher
accessible. Do not douse or spray the grill or cooking
surfaces with water when hot. Burns from grease or
the water splatters could occur.
· If your gas grill catches on fire:
- If the fire is in the grill portion and you can safely
reach the control knobs on the control panel, then
turn them to the off position.
- If the fire is in one of the hoses, and you can safely
reach the LP cylinder valve, then shut the valve off.
- If the fire involves the cylinder, leave it alone,
evacuate the area and call the fire department.
- If there is any type of fire that threatens either
personal safety or endangers property, call the fire
department.
· Do not wear loose clothing (example: hanging shirt
tails, clothing with frills, etc.) around a gas grill while in
use or hot.
· Do not lean your body over the gas grill when lighting
it or while it is in use or hot.
· Do not touch hot surfaces. Use heat resistant gloves,
long-handled tongs, or cooking mitts at all times
since the grill will become very hot. Open the hood
carefully when cooking to avoid burns from the hot air
and steam trapped inside.
· Do not allow children to operate or play near a gas
grill. Keep animals and bystanders out of the grill area.
Do not leave grill unattended.
· Do not move an LP gas grill when in use or hot.
· When grill is not in use, turn off all grill control knobs,
LP cylinder valve and disconnect the LP cylinder.
END OF COOKING SESSION
To reduce the risk of serious bodily injury, fire or death:
· Allow grill and grease in the Drip Cup to completely
cool before emptying, handling parts, cleaning, moving
or storage.
· Empty the Drip Cup after each cooking session so
excessive grease does not accumulate.
· Never light the LP gas grill without the Drip Cup in
place.
1) After each cooking session, close the hood and turn the
grill burners to the “High” position and burn for five
minutes. This procedure will burn off cooking residue,
thus making cleaning easier. (Side Burner not affected)
2) When you have finished using your grill, turn the grill
Control Knobs clockwise to the “Off” position.
2) Turn off the gas at the LP cylinder valve by turning the
handle clockwise until it stops.
3) Wait until the grill is cool before closing the hood, cleaning
or putting on the cover.
4) Regularly clean your LP gas grill between uses and after
extended storage periods. To maintain the condition and
extend the life of your grill, we strongly recommend that
the unit be covered when stored outside for any length of
time, especially during the winter months.
CARE AND MAINTENANCE
4) Remove the two Burner screws from the bottom of grill
Bowl. (FIG. 15C) Lift Burner out from the top of the grill.

CLEANING THE GRILL
1) Remove Drip Cup, Cooking Grid, and Flame Diffuser.
2) Drip Cup-Wash the Drip Cup with soap and water.
3) Grill Body and Cart-Remove excess grease and/or fat
with a soft plastic or wooden scraper. Do not use steel
wool or other abrasive cleaners that can scratch painted
or porcelain coated surfaces. It is not necessary to remove
all the grease from the body. Wipe it down with paper
towels or soft damp cloth.
4) Warming Rack-Clean if necessary with soap and water.
5) Cooking Grid/Flame Diffuser. Clean the residue off
with hot soap and water, or baking soda. For stubborn
stains, use a non-abrasive scouring powder. Do not use
steel wool or other abrasive cleaners that can scratch the
porcelain coated surfaces. This can cause foods to stick on
the Cooking Grids.
6) All other Cleaning-For further cleaning, use hot soapy
water and a cloth, or nylon-bristled brush only. Do not
immerse the gas controls or manifold in water. (Avoid
getting water in the Burner Holes.)
7) Burner-Burning off the residue after cooking will keep the
burner clean with normal usage, provided the Burner
is operating correctly. Clean the the Burner annually,
or whenever heavy build-up is found, to ensure that there
are no signs of blockage (debris, insects) in either the
burner portholes, the primary air inlet, or the neck of the
burner. (See Burner Cleaning instructions.)
8) After cleaning, replace all the cleaned parts. Re-tighten
Burner and Heat Shield screws.

5) Use a pipe cleaner to clear insect nests from the inlet
hole of main burner (FIG. 15D). Open up the main burner
holes with a small nail or wire.Normal wear and corrosion
may enlarge some holes, however, if large cracks or
holes are found, replace the Burner. Use a brass wire
brush to remove food particles and corrosion from the
burner surface. (Note: It is normal for surface rust to be
present on the burners.) It can be wire brushed and
coated with cooking oil periodically. Verify that there are
no insects or insect nests blocking the inlet hole. Before
next step you may wish to clean the rest of the Grill Bowl
inside. (See Grill Body and Cart Cleaning.)
6) If grill is to be stored, coat Burner lightly with cooking oil
and wrap in a protective cover to keep insects out.
7) After cleaning, re-install the Burner. Be sure that it is
positioned correctly. The valve nozzles should fit inside
the venturi ends of the burner. (See FIG. 15C)
8) Re-attach Heat Shield to bottom of Bowl and Side
Crossbrace.
9) Check burner operation after re-assembly.
