Smoker Preparation

  • Prior to first use, wash the cooking grates and the warming rack with warm soapy water.
  • Pre-firing
    Before your first cooking with your smoker, the following steps should be closely followed to both protect the interior and exterior finish and season the interior steel. Failure to properly follow these steps may
    impart unnatural flavours to your first foods, damage the finish, and result in affecting the overall durability of your smoker.
  • Lightly coat interior surfaces including grills and cooking grates with vegetable cooking oil. This will extend the life of the finish, much like waxing a car.
  • Build a small fire on the charcoal pan, make sure not to lay coals against the walls.
  • Sustain burn for about two hours with lid closed and all dampers to 1/4 of the way open. Allow the smoker to cool down properly.
  • Your smoker will then be ready for use.

⚠ Grill will drip oil during this process and for several uses afterwards. This is normal.


Types of Charcoal

You can burn either charcoal briquettes or natural lump charcoal, which have different attributes. Charcoal briquettes typically provide longer cooking time and are usually less expensive while lump charcoal burns hotter and produces less ash.

Smoking with Wood Chips

Tips for Using Wood Chips
A lot of smoke is produced when using wood chips. Smoke can escape through seams and turn the inside of the smoker black. This is normal. Wood chips must be used to produce smoke and create the smoke flavour. Never use more than 1 box of wood chips at a time.
You can use dry or pre-soaked wood chips in your smoker.
Dry chips burn faster and produce more intense smoke.
Chips pre-soaked in water (for approximately 30 minutes) burn slower and produce a less intense smoke.
Check wood chip box periodically to see if wood has burned down. Add more chips as required.

Smoking with wood chips/wood chunks
For a more robust smoke flavour 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 flavours and can be used alone or in addition to charcoal. As a rule, any hardwood that bears a fruit or nut is suitable for cooking. However, different woods have 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 taste bitter.

Operating Instructions

⚠ Building The Fire

  1. Open the lid and remove the cooking grates.
  2. To start a charcoal fire, we recommended to stack 2 lb.
    (approximately 30 briquettes) into a pyramid-shaped pile and saturate with lighter fluid, adding more as needed on the charcoal pan. Allow the coals to ash over before adding more.
    ⚠ Do not use gasoline, kerosene, or alcohol for lighting charcoal. Use of any of these or similar products can cause an explosion possibly leading to severe bodily injury.
  3. Light the coals in several places.
  4. After the briquettes ash over and produce a red glow, spread them evenly across the charcoal pan. Please use a suitable heat-resistant tool with a long, heat-resistant handle when you do this.
  5. Put the cooking grates in place and adjust the charcoal pan to the desired height by using the lifting handle/lever and start cooking.
  6. If the charcoal is not burning evenly, please use long-handled tongs to move coals for even heat.
  7. Leave the lid open or closed based on the type of BBQ meat. Please close the lid when longer cooking time is needed. The thermometer located on the lid shows the temperature to ensure it is not too high for a particular BBQ meat.

⚠ Chimney starters, electric starters, or other types of fire starters may be used instead of lighter fluid to light fire but use only according to manufacturer’s instructions.
Never use instant light charcoal or charcoal lighter fluid with any other starting methods.

⚠ Allow enough time for grill to heat up before cooking. You can’t cook properly when the grill is cold, and you can’t build a fire properly when you are busy preparing food.
Once the fire is burning well, it is easy to keep it going with a little attention.

⚠ Rising heat will move up and out of the grill, open the dampers to allow more fresh air into the grill. The more air into the grill, the hotter the internal temperature will be until the fuel has been maximized. During cooking, the dampers can be fully open to ensure a higher internal cooking temperature. Close the dampers as needed to decrease the airflow for a lower cooking temperature. Check the heat indicator to monitor the grill temperature.

⚠ The adjustable charcoal pan can also be used to control the temperature.
Use the lifting handles to raise the charcoal pan for quick searing and lower it for slow cooking.

Always use a flame-retardant insulated grill mitt when adjusting the air vent or the charcoal pan.

⚠ Use extreme caution to avoid injury when opening the lid and removing the cooking grates to add charcoal.

  1. Wear flame-retardant insulated grill mitt, use the lifting handles to lower the charcoal pan to its lowest setting as handles will be extremely hot.
  2. Please remove all the food and the cooking grates to add charcoal. Use long-handled tongs to stoke coals, make the ash fall through the slots in the ash tray.
  3. Make sure to put back the cooking grates in position after this procedure.
  4. Raise the charcoal pan to the desired level as needed.

⚠ Do not use lighter fluid or instant light charcoal when adding additional charcoal to an existing fire. This is dangerous and can cause injury. It will also leave a lighter fluid aftertaste on your food. Only add regular charcoal or wood chunks to an existing fire.

Indirect Operation

  • 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 two or three coals deep 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.
  • It is common to place a metal drip pan in the empty space beside or between the coals, which is filled with water, wine, beer, broth, or combination. Place the food directly over the drip pan. This injects a little extra moisture into the cooking environment and also
    catches dripping juices, which makes clean-up a little easier and reduces the possibility of flare-ups. (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.

Tips for Indirect Smoking
Pans are not included, and a disposable bread pan is recommended. Please purchase it separately.

  • If you want to sear certain foods before smoking, please place meat directly above charcoals on the cooking grates with lid open in high (hot) position for several minutes.
  • Add flavour-soaked wood chips to the fire and add 1-part marinade, beer, or wine with 3 parts water into the drip pan.
  • Open the smoking chamber will extend cooking time.
  • Insert the thermometer into the thickest part not touching the bone and allow five minutes to register.
  • Check the water level when cooking for more than 4 hours or when you can’t hear the water simmering.
  • Add water by turning the meat over and pouring water through the grill into the water pan.


Maintenance and Cleaning

Your grill is made of high-quality materials. To clean and maintain the surfaces, please follow the below instructions:

Danger: Risk of burning!
⚠  Let the grill cool down completely before cleaning.

  • Only tip out the ash when the charcoal has completely burned out.

Danger: Health risk!
⚠  Do not use any decolourants or thinners to remove stains.
These are harmful to health and must not come into contact with food.

Caution: Risk of damage!

⚠ Do not use any strong or grinding solvents or abrasive pads, as they can damage surfaces and leave behind scratch marks.
When you have finished grilling you can shut down your grill by closing both dampers and allowing the fire to extinguish.
Be patient. This may take an hour or more.

Empty the Ashes & Ash tray:

⚠ After the fire is completely extinguished you should wait several hours before emptying the ashes to ensure they are not hot, or else there will be risk of burns.

  • Knock any ashes that did not fall into the ash tray from the charcoal pan. (If there are pieces of partially burned charcoal on the charcoal pan, you can save them for use the next time. They are still good).
  • Tap the sides of the chamber to loosen any ash that is on the sides.
  • Lift out the charcoal pan and empty out the cold ash. It is particularly important that you remove the ash before moisture combines with the cold ash. Ash collects moisture, which can cause premature rusting and decay from the inside of the ash collecting tray. Thus, over years the ash collecting tray can get rusted and damaged.
  • Give the ash tray a few firm taps to loosen any ash that may be stuck.
  • Place the ashes in a metal container and fill with water to ensure there are no lit coals, then you can dispose of the ashes.
  • Let the charcoal burn out completely after grilling. This eases the cleaning effort by burning away excess fat and BBQ residue.
  • Clean the grill regularly and optimally after every use.
  • Remove the cooking grates and clean them thoroughly with soapy water. Then dry them off thoroughly.
  • Use a wet sponge to remove loose residue from the grill.
  • Use a soft, clean cloth for drying. Do not scratch the surfaces when wipe them dry.
  • Clean the internal and external surfaces with warm soapy water.
  • Tighten all screws before every use to ensure your grill is stable at all times.
  • Protect your grill against weather. Since it is manufactured from steel it will gradually rust. Clean possible rust spots and repair them with fireproof paint. It is important that you remove the ash from the firebox before the cold ash collecting moisture as this can lead to rust damage.

⚠ The grill should always be stored where it is protected from moisture.

⚠ Charcoal is porous and holds moisture. DO NOT leave charcoal in your grill when you are not using it. Charcoal and ashes left inside the ash pan may reduce the durability of your grill.
