Grill Start-up Guide

WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT?

Following the correct start-up process is very important as it can have many different affects on your cook, even hours in. Started incorrectly grills my experience temp swings, flame outs, and many other issues. Please review the below chart to find out which start-up process is used for your model.


REFERENCE INFORMATION:

Several grill models produced in 2016 or later now follow a simplified start-up process. See the table below, and instructions on how to find the model # (SKU) to see if your grill should use the new start-up method.

FINDING THE GRILL MODEL NUMBER

  1. Open hopper lid
  2. Look for the bar code sticker underneath the words "Attention Serial #"
  3. The first alpha/numeric combination is the model number, then separated by the year it was produced and the month.
NOTE
If the model number is not found in the closed lid start-up process, assume it is an open lid process.
