NATURAL HAZARD•SPIDERS
FACT: Sometimes spiders and other small insects climb
into the burner tubes attached to the burner. The
spiders spin webs, build nests and lay eggs. The
webs or nests can be very small, but they
are very strong and can block the flow
of gas. Clean burner prior to use after
storing, at the beginning of grilling season
or after a period of one month not being used.
Spiderguards are on the air intakes in an effort to
reduce this problem, but it will not eliminate it! An
obstruction can result in a "flashback" (a fire in the
burner tubes). The grill may still light, but the obstruction
does not allow full gas flow to the burner.
IF YOU EXPERIENCE THE FOLLOWING:
1. Smell gas.
2. Burner(s) will not light.
3. A small yellow flame from burner (should be blue).
4. Fire coming from around or behind control knob.
STOP!
Immediately turn off gas at LP cylinder!
SOLUTION:
Wait for grill to cool.
Follow the “Cleaning the Burner Assembly”instructions.
Clean burner often. Use a 12” pipecleaner to clean out
the burner tube. You may also force a stream of water
from a hose nozzle through burner tube to clean them.
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.
• Grill Trough: Wash with warm soapy water and wipe dry.
The grill trough is NOT designed to be used as a cooking
surface.
• Side Shelves: Wash with warm soapy water and wipe dry.
Do not use citrisol, abrasive cleaners, degreasers or a
concentrated grill cleaner on plastic side shelves. Damage to
and failure of shelves can result.
Storing Your Grill
How To Tell If Meat Is Cooked Thoroughly
• Clean cooking surface and trough.
• When LP cylinder is connected to grill, store outdoors in wellventilated space and out of reach of children.
• Cover grill if stored outdoors.
• Store grill indoors ONLY if LP cylinder is turned off and
disconnected, removed from grill and stored outdoors in wellventilated space and out of reach of children.
• Leak test the grill after removing from storage and follow
Cleaning Burner Assembly instructions before starting grill.
• Keep grill area clear and free from materials that burn (i.e.
gasoline, propane or other flammable liquid or gas).
• Do not block holes in bottom or back of grill.
•Meat and poultry cooked in the appliance often browns very
fast on the outside. Use only thawed meat and a meat
thermometer to be sure food has reached a safe internal
temperature, and cut into food to check for visual signs of
doneness.
•We recommend food to be at least 40°F before cooking in your
appliance.
•Whole poultry should reach 165° F. Juices should run clear
and flesh should not be pink.
•Beef, veal and lamb steaks, roasts and pork chops can be
cooked to 160° F.
•NEVER partially cook meat or poultry and finish cooking later.
Cook food completely to destroy harmful bacteria.
•Use a meat thermometer to ensure proper internal food
temperatures.
