GRILLING GUIDE – Getting Started
First Time Use
Read your Assembly Manual and ensure the grill is put
together properly. Remove all Point-of-Purchase
advertising material from all grill surfaces before first use.
We recommend operating your grill on its highest setting for
15-20 minutes prior to your first use. This aids in removing
the oils used during manufacturing.
Lava Rock / Briquettes
This gas grill has been designed, engineered, and tested to
be used with heat tents to provide more even heating,
improve the cleaning process, and reduce flare-ups. The
addition of after market lava rocks, charcoal, or briquettes
of any type will cause poor combustion and increase the
likelihood of a grease fire, and is not recommended. Using
briquettes, lava rock, or charcoal in this grill will void your
warranty. For extra smoke flavor, we recommend using a
smoker box with wood chips.
Temperature - Convective Grills ONLY.
The temperature gauge in the hood of your new grill
measures air temperature. The air temperature inside your
grill will never be as hot as the temperature at the cooking
surface.
Note: Since 1995, all regulators (the part that attaches to
the gas tank to regulate the flow of gas) have included a
safety feature that restricts gas flow in the event of a gas
leak. You can inadvertently activate this safety feature
without having a gas leak. This typically occurs when you
turn on the gas using the grill control knob before you turn
on the LP tank valve. If the gas regulator safety feature
activates, the grill will only reach temperatures between
250°F and 300°F even with all burners on the high setting.
Regulator
Pre-Heating Your Grill
Just like your home oven, your grill should be pre-heated
to provide optimum performance. Pre-heat the grill on high
for 10-15 minutes – longer if weather conditions require.
Please refer to the lighting instructions inside the Product
Guide if you have questions about how to light your grill. A
match-light chain and hole is provided for your
convenience.
Outdoor grilling is really quite simple. You'll succeed with
burgers, dogs, or steaks usually on your very first try.
With experience, you will learn how to work with your grill,
creating more imaginative meals all the time. This
knowledge makes up the art of grilling. Before you start
grilling, organize your food according to cooking
technique and required cooking time, and optimize the
use of your grilling area.
Rotisserie Cooking
Rotisserie cooking is best for 'round' meat, such as large
roasts, whole poultry, and pork. It generally requires an
accessory motor and spit rod that allows the meat to be
turned at a constant speed. Rotisserie cooking is best
done in front of a special rotisserie burner, or utilizing an
indirect cooking burner arrangement. A pan can be
placed underneath the meat to catch grease and food
drippings, and helps minimize clean-up.
Direct Cooking
Direct cooking involves grilling your meat directly over
high heat. It is perfect for searing steaks, chops, and
other smaller pieces of meat and vegetables that quickly
make their way to the table.
Indirect Cooking
Indirect cooking utilizes select burners to circulate heat
throughout the grill, without direct contact between the
meat and the flame. The meat is placed over the burner
that is 'off'. This method is generally used to slow cook
large cuts of meat and poultry. A pan can be placed
underneath the meat to catch grease and food drippings,
and helps minimize clean-up.
Coupling Nut
If your grill is not getting hotter than 250°F to 300°F
these steps should be taken first to reset the gas
regulator safety device:
1. Open the grill lid.
2. Turn off all knobs on the control panel in front.
3. Turn off the tank knob.
4. Disconnect the regulator from the LP tank.
5. Wait 30 seconds.
6. Reconnect the regulator to the LP tank.
7. Slowly open the LP tank knob all the way. Do not put
excessive force on the valve at the full open position to
avoid damaging the valve.
8. Turn on the appropriate control knob and light the grill per
the instructions.
An illustration of this process is included in this Product
Guide. See Troubleshooting section for additional
information.

Food Safety
Food safety is a very important part of enjoying the
outdoor cooking experience. To keep food safe from
harmful bacteria, follow these four basic steps:
Clean: Wash hands, utensils, and surfaces with hot
soapy water before and after handling raw meat.
Separate: Separate raw meats from ready-to-eat foods
to avoid cross contamination. Use a clean platter and
utensils when removing cooked foods.
Cook: Cook meat and poultry thoroughly to kill bacteria.
Use a thermometer to ensure proper internal food
temperatures.
Chill: Refrigerate prepared foods and leftovers promptly.
GRILLING GUIDE – Tips & Tricks
Cooking on your new grill is a hands-on experience, and it is
recommended to remain outside with your grill while
cooking. Grilling can be affected by many external
conditions. In cold weather, you will need more heat to
reach an ideal cooking temperature, and grilling may take
longer. The meat's internal temperature and thickness can
also affect cooking times. Cold and thicker meats will take
longer to cook.
Skewers
Metal skewers should be flat, with long handles. Round
skewers allow food to roll when turned, so it may not cook
as evenly. Use metal skewers when cooking meat
kabobs. Wooden skewers should be soaked in water for
an hour before use, and are best used for quick cooking
foods such as vegetables and fruits.
Internal Meat Temperatures
Meat cooked on a grill often browns very fast on the outside.
Therefore, use a meat thermometer to ensure it has
reached safe internal temperatures.
USDA Recommended Safe Minimum
Internal Temperatures

Please refer to the USDA for complete, up-to-date
information. Our internal temperature chart is based on
USDA standards for meat doneness. Check it out at
www.isitdoneyet.gov
Sauces
Sauces containing sugars and fats can cause flare-ups, and
your food may burn. In general, apply these sauces during
the final 10 minutes of cooking. Keep in mind, use of
excessive sauces or glazes will also require extra cleaning
afterwards.
Utensils
Use tongs or a spatula to handle the food instead of a
fork, and don't turn the food too
often. Piercing the food
with a fork will release
juices that you want in
the meat, and may
cause flare-ups.
Marinades and Rubs
To enhance the flavor of grilled foods, a liquid marinade or
dry rub can be used prior to cooking. Meat can be either
soaked or injected with liquid marinade up to 24 hours prior
to grilling. Dry rubs can be applied directly to the meat
immediately before grilling.
Painted surfaces: Wash with mild detergent or non-abrasive
cleaner and warm water. Wipe dry with a soft non-abrasive
cloth.
Stainless steel surfaces: Stainless steel can rust under
certain conditions. This can be caused by environmental
conditions such as chlorine or salt water, or improper
cleaning tools such as wire or steel
wool. It can also discolor due to heat,
chemicals, or grease build-up. To
maintain your grill's high quality
appearance, wash with mild detergent
and warm water, or use a stainless
steel grill cleaner. Baked-on grease
deposits may require the use of an
abrasive plastic cleaning pad. Use only
in direction of brushed finish to avoid
damage. Do not use abrasive pad on
areas with graphics.
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.
Storing Your Grill
• Clean cooking grates.
• Store grill in dry location.
• When LP cylinder is connected to grill, store outdoors in
a well ventilated space and out of reach of children.
• Cover grill if stored outdoors. Choose from a variety of
grill covers offered by manufacturer.
• Store grill indoors ONLY if LP cylinder is turned off,
disconnected, and removed from grill. Never store LP
cylinder indoors.
• When removing grill from storage, follow the 'Cleaning
the Burner Assembly' instructions in the Use and Care
section of the Product Guide.
Critters
Spiders like to make their homes in the venturi tubes of
grills. These must be inspected and cleaned regularly to
ensure there are no blockages. Refer to the Use and
Care portion of this Product Guide for complete
information.
GRILLING GUIDE – Cleaning
Your Grill
Why Clean?
We've all heard the saying 'An ounce of prevention is worth
a pound of cure'. This is great advice when it comes to
keeping your grill clean.
Wood Chips
For extra smoke flavor when grilling, try adding wood
chips. Soak the chips in water for approximately 30
minutes before adding to a smoke box or pan. Place
smoke box or pan on top of the cooking grate above the
flame. Turn grill on high until the wood starts to smoke.
Reduce heat to desired temperature for cooking, and
place food on cooking grate as desired. Close lid to
retain more smoke. Hardwood varieties that work
particularly well with grilled foods include Alder, Apple,
Cherry, Hickory, Mesquite, and Pecan.
Routine Care
Periodic cleaning of this grill is necessary, as grill fires can
occur when grease and food debris collect in the bottom of
the grill. After each use, remove any remaining food
particles from the cooking grate and inside of the grill using
a grill brush. Do this after the grill has cooled down. This
grill is not designed to be 'burned off' by closing the lid and
turning the burners on High for an extended time. The
excessive heat generated can cause leftover grease to
catch fire, and can cause permanent damage to your grill.
The Char-Broil® grill is equipped with Gear Trax™,
which allow for the easy mounting of our unique line of
Gear Trax accessories. Please visit charbroil.com for a
complete list of Gear Trax accessories. *Available on
most models.
General Cleaning
Plastic parts: Wash with warm soapy water and wipe dry.
Do not use abrasive cleaners, degreasers or a
concentrated grill cleaner on plastic parts. Damage to and
failure of parts can result.
Porcelain surfaces: Because of glass-like composition,
most residue can be wiped away with baking soda/water
solution or glass cleaner. Use non-abrasive scouring
powder for stubborn stains.

SPIDER ALERT!
SPIDER AND WEBS
INSIDE BURNER
If your grill is getting hard to light or the flame is weak,
check and clean the venturis and burners.
Spiders or small insects are known to create
“flashback” problems by building nests and laying
eggs in the barbeque’s venturi or burner, obstructing
the flow of gas. The back-up gas can ignite behind
the control panel. This flashback can damage your
barbeque and cause injury. To prevent flashbacks
and ensure good performance the burner and venturi
tube assembly should be removed and cleaned when
ever the barbeque has been idle for an extended
period of time.
Cleaning the Burner Assembly
Follow these instructions to clean and/or replace parts of
burner assembly or if you have trouble igniting grill.
1. Turn gas OFF at control knobs and LP cylinder.
2. Remove cooking grates and heat tent.
3. Under grill remove grease cup, disconnect ignitor wire
from burner.
4. Inside grill remove burner assembly (A), clean ceramic
portion of electrode with rubbing alcohol and a swab.
5. Clean outside of burner with soap and water. Lay burner
upside down on flat surface, insert garden hose to force
water through tubes. Make sure water comes out of all
burner holes. Open clogged holes with a thin wire. Shake
out excess water and examine holes. Check that the
burners are not damaged. Because of normal wear and
corrosion some holes may have enlarged. If you notice large
cracks or large holes, replace the burner.
6. If grill is to be stored, coat burner lightly with cooking oil.
Wrap in protective cover to keep insects out.
7. If not storing grill after cleaning, replace burner into grill
bottom. See illustration (B).
VERY IMPORTANT: Burner tubes must re-engage
valve openings. See illustration (A).
8. Reattach ignitor wire to electrode.
9. Reposition heat tent and cooking grate. Reattach
clean grease cup to grease clip.
10. Before cooking again on grill, perform a “Leak Test” and
“Burner Flame Check”.
General Grill Cleaning
• Do not mistake brown or black accumulation of grease
and smoke for paint. Interiors of gas grills are not
painted at the factory (and should never be painted).
Apply a strong solution of detergent and water or use a
grill cleaner with scrub brush on insides of grill lid and
bottom. Rinse and allow to completely air dry. Do not
apply a caustic grill/oven cleaner to painted
surfaces.
Burner Flame Check
• Remove cooking grates and heat tents. Light burners,
rotate knobs from HIGH to LOW. You should see a
smaller flame in LOW position than seen on HIGH.
Perform burner flame check on side burner, also. Always
check flame prior to each use. If only low flame is seen
refer to "Sudden drop or low flame" in the
Troubleshooting Section.

Turning Grill Off
• Turn all knobs to the
OFF position. Turn LP cylinder
OFF by turning hand-wheel clockwise to a full stop.
Ignitor Check
• Turn gas off at LP cylinder. Press and hold
electronic ignitor button. "Click" should be heard and
spark seen each time in each collector box or
between burner and electrode. See "Troubleshooting"
if no click or spark.
Valve Check
• Important: Make sure gas is off at LP cylinder
before checking valves. Knobs lock in OFF position.
To check valves, first push in knobs and release, knobs
should spring back. If knobs do not spring back,
replace valve assembly before using grill. Turn knobs
to LOW position then turn back to OFF position. Valves
should turn smoothly.
Hose Check
• Before each use, check to see if hoses are cut or worn
or kinked. Replace damaged hoses before using grill.
Use only valve/hose/regulator specified by
manufacturer.
• Plastic parts: Wash with warm soapy water and wipe dry.
• Do not use citrisol, abrasive cleaners, degreasers or a
concentrated grill cleaner on plastic parts. Damage to
and failure of parts can result.
• Porcelain surfaces: Because of glass-like composition,
most residue can be wiped away with baking
soda/water solution or specially formulated cleaner. Use
nonabrasive scouring powder for stubborn stains.
• Painted surfaces: Wash with mild detergent or
nonabrasive cleaner and warm soapy water. Wipe dry
with a soft nonabrasive cloth.
• Stainless steel surfaces: To maintain your grill’s high
quality appearance, wash with mild detergent and
warm soapy water and wipe dry with a soft cloth after
each use. Baked-on grease deposits may require the
use of an abrasive plastic cleaning pad. Use only in
direction of brushed finish to avoid damage. Do not
use abrasive pad on areas with graphics.
• Cooking surfaces: 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.
Storing Your Grill
• Clean cooking grates.
• Store in dry location.
• When LP cylinder is connected to grill, store outdoors
in a well-ventilated space and out of reach of
children.
• Cover grill if stored outdoors. Choose from a variety of
grill covers offered by manufacturers.
• Store grill indoors ONLY if LP cylinder is turned off and
disconnected, removed from grill and stored outdoors.
• When removing grill from storage, follow “Cleaning the
Burner Assembly” instructions before starting grill.
