e LP Tan - Continued Connecting ALL INSTRUCTIONS AND SAFEGUARDS ON THIS PAGE MUST BE FOLLOWED TO PREVENT FIRE , DAMAGE , AND / OR INJURY . Cylinders must be filled before initial use . All handling , transport , filling and storage of LP gas cylinders must be in accordance with NFPA 58 Storage and Handling of Liquid Petroleum Gases , or CAN / CGA b149 . 2 Propane Installation Code . Cylinders must be suitably tied down during transport . Do not place any other items on top of cylinders at any time . Cylinders are not to be exposed to excessive temperatures or high heat . if there is a question on the identity of your unit and of the type of fuel to be used , please look on the data plate , Units are factory equipped for use on only one type of fuel . These units cannot be , and should not be used on other type of fuels . Doing so can cause severe damage to the unit and the installation area and the added risk of serious injury . Any attempt to operate these smokers on fuels for which they are not design certified voids the manufacturer's warranty . Gas Tank outlet must have Type 1 gas connection termination in order to mate with gas hose provided with smoker . The pressure regulator and hose assembly supplied by the manufacturer with the appliance must be used . Replacement pressure regulators and hose assemblies must be those specified by the appliance manufacturer . The regulator / hose assembly should be handled carefully to prevent contamination by foreign objects and dirt . The assembly should be inspected before use and any dirt or contamination should be wiped off . In order to insure proper operation , any replacement of the fuel tank regulator assembly has to be done with parts authorized by the smoker manufacturer . This unit is not to be utilized with a non - self - contained LP - gas supply system , A Valve / pressure regulators are factory set to the correct operating pressures . No attempts should be made to adjust these settings ! Checking for Leaks After all connections are completed , check all connections and fittings for leaks with a soap solution . - With all valves closed , apply the leak check solution ( 50 / 50 mix of dishwashing detergent and water ) to all gas carrying connections and fittings . - Open tank valve . Presence of bubbles at areas of wet solution indicates a gas leak . If leaks are detected or you smell or hear gas , shut off the valve and repair the leak or replace the defective part . Do not use the smoker until all leaks are corrected . When setting up the smoker and tank , it is recommended to have the tank and smoker on a line perpendicular to the wind direction . The gas hose / regulator assembly should be totally extended to the maximum distance so that the hose is straight and the tank is as far from the smoker as it can be . LP tanks are intended for operation in the upright position only . Care should be taken to protect the fuel supply hose from damage from either foot or vehicle traffic . If the appliance is not in use , the gas must be turned off at the supply cylinder and the cylinder should be disconnected from the appliance . Storage of the appliance indoors is only permissible if the cylinder is disconnected and removed from the appliance . LP Tank Not Included 17

Operating Instructions Pre - Use Procedures Your smoker has been packaged with a retail store level point - of - purchase label that hangs on the front of the door panel . This label must be removed before use . To remove the label , simply cut or tear along the indicated line and pull the top portion of the label from behind the name plate . Before you cook food in your smoker , it is important to " season " your smoker . Seasoning seals the paint and interior of your smoker to enhance flavoring , durability , and overall performance . This is also referred to as the " break - in " process . If your smoker requires any touch - up paint on the inside of the cabinet , the only time you should apply paint to the inside is before the seasoning process . Paint should not be applied to the interior of your smoker after your smoker has been used . Paint toxins may contaminate your food . However , if paint becomes necessary after use , see the section in this manual concerning After Use Care and Maintenance . To season your smoker , simply use it as you normally would ; only do not cook any food . You will need to follow all of the operating procedures in the next few sections of this manual . Using your desired flavoring woods , marinades , and charcoal , burn your smoker at low temperature ( around 125 ° F ) for 45 - 60 minutes . Let the smoker cool , and clean out the used charcoal , water , and wood . If your heat indicator seems to be out of calibration , you can adjust the calibration by following the procedure described in the maintenance section on page 24 . Once seasoning is complete , your smoker's interior will have a durable , seasoned coating . Adding Water To add water before cooking , simply remove the water bowl and fill it with water up to 1 " below the rim . Then replace the bowl to the bottom of the rack . To add water while the smoker is hot , DO NOT pull the water bowl out beyond the rack . Cooking Tip : _ Line the water bowl with aluminum foil before each use . This will make it easy to clean and help your water bowl last longer . _ To make adding water easier and safer , use a clean watering can with a long spout . 18
Page: 21

Adding Wood / Charcoal To add wood chips before cooking , simply fill the wood chip box with your choice of flavoring hardwood chips . The amount and type of wood you use is entirely up to you . One full box is typically enough for several hours of smoking . Once the box is filled , place the lid on top of the box and set the box in the smoker . To add wood chips while cooking , we recommend using tongs or long handled pliers to remove the box lid and to place the pieces into the wood chip box without removing the box . It is not recommended to remove the wood chip box while the smoker is in operation . CAUTION ! : The wood chip box and lid get very hot . Avoid handling them while in use . Always wear protective oven mitts when handling hot components . Cooking Tip - Flavoring wood : _ Small wood chips work best inside the wood chip box . _ : _ Use dry hardwoods such as hickory , pecan , apple , cherry , or mesquite . _ Most fruit or nut tree woods produce excellent smoke flavoring . _ Do not use resinous woods such as pine or plywood . These usually produce unpleasant flavoring . _ Let your taste be your guide - experiment with different types and quantities of wood chunks , chips , or sticks . You can even mix woods . To produce more smoke and to prevent fast burning , pre - soak the wood chips in a separate bowl of water for at least 20 minutes , or wrap the chips in perforated aluminum foil . Most smoke flavoring occurs within the first hour of cooking . Adding wood chips after the first hour is typically not necessary unless extra smoke flavoring is desired . 19

Cooking Tip - Damper Adjustments : For better performance , rotate the smoker to where the front or back of the cabinet is facing the wind . This allows the adjustment of the dampers to be more effective and accurate . _ The dampers should never be fully closed . _ Opening a side damper allows more oxygen to be consumed by the fire , fueling the flames and causing an increase in temperature . _ Opening the top damper helps to exhaust both the heat and smoke . _ The key to effective smoking is to watch your heat indicator on the door and adjust the dampers accordingly . _ Temperature maintenance is best controlled by different damper adjustment configurations . Shutting the Smoker Off CAUTION : The smoker can become very hot while in use . Do not touch any portion of the smoker except for the door handle and burner control knob . It may be necessary to use protective gloves . • Turn the burner control knob off by pushing in and rotating clockwise . The burner flame should then go out . • Turn off the LP cylinder valve by turning the knob clockwise until it stops . Follow all warnings and safety precautions before removing meat from smoker or preparing the unit for storage . Please see page 24 for proper storage procedures and the important warnings and safeguards on pages 1 and 2 . 21

Cooking Instructions IMPORTANT : Before each use , clean and inspect the hose and the connection to the LP cylinder . If there is evidence of abrasion , wear , cuts or leaks , the hose must be replaced before the smoker is used . Refer to the " leak test " instructions in the LP Tank connection portion of this manual . Fill the wood chip box with flavoring wood chips and place the box inside the smoker as instructed in the assembly section of this manual . Refer to the section that explains flavoring wood for recommended use of flavoring wood . Place the water bowl inside the smoker in the lowest rack position as explained in the assembly section of this manual . Carefully fill the water bowl with water or marinade up to 1 inch below the rim . A full bowl will last for approximately 2 - 3 hours . Do not overfill or allow water to overflow from the water bowl . Insert or adjust the cooking grids in to the desired rack positions . For better access to the food with tongs or spatulas , make sure the grid wires run front to back as explained in the assembly section of this manual . You are now ready to light the burner . Refer to the Lighting Procedure on the previous pages of this manual . The heat from the burner will allow the wood chips to burn , causing the flavoring smoke to accumulate . Adjust the dampers to control the heat . • Place the food on the cooking grids in a single layer with space between each piece . This will allow smoke and hot moisture to circulate evenly around all the food pieces . Smoking for 2 to 3 hours at the ideal constant cooking temperature of 225 ° to 250 ° F will get the best results . This temperature is according to the heat indicator mounted on the front of the smoker . For more tender and heavily smoked meat , a lower temperature may be preferred . If time is critical , a higher temperature range is recommended . Check water level periodically and add water if low . For best results and to retain heat , avoid opening the door of the smoker while in use . When the door must be opened , only open it briefly . The smoker will quickly resume cooking temperature after the door is closed . • Always use a meat probe thermometer to ensure food is fully cooked before removing it from the smoker . 22
