The standard for outdoor gas appliances, ANSI Z21.58/ CAN/CGA-1.6, requires that LP gas cylinders used with LP gas appliances be equipped with both

  • An Overfill Prevention Device (OPD)
  • A QCC®-1 Quick Closing Coupling system

The OPD is designed to reduce the potential of overfilling propane cylinders, thus reducing the possibility of relief valve discharges of raw propane. The OPD causes a slower purge/fill operation.

The QCC®-1 system incorporates safety features required by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the Canadian Standards Association (CSA)

  • Gas will not flow until a positive connection has been made
  • A thermal element will shut off the flow of gas between 240° and 300° F
  • When activated, a Flow Limiting Device will limit the flow of gas to 10 cubic feet/hour.


The LP gas cylinder is not included with the Gas Grill. Be sure to use an LP gas cylinder equipped with the OPD and the QCC® valve.

The QCC®-1 valve is recognized by the external threads on the inlet port of the LP gas cylinder valve. The OPD hand wheel has been standardized to the shape shown. QCC® /OPD-equipped LP gas cylinders are available from your Gas Grill Dealer. NOTE: Any attempt to connect the regulator, by use of adapters or any other means, to any other valve could result in damage, fire, or injury and may negate the important safety features of the QCC®-1 system.


  1. All LP gas cylinders used with this appliance must be constructed and marked by the Specifications for LP gas cylinders of the U.S. Department of Transportation (D.O.T.) or the National Standard of Canada, CAN/CSA-B339, Cylinders, Spheres and Tubes for Transportation of Dangerous Goods; and Commission, as applicable.

  2. Do not store the LP gas cylinder in direct sunlight, near a source of heat or combustion.
  3. Do not store a spare LP gas cylinder in an enclosure. Disconnected cylinders must have a dust cap installed and must not be stored in a building, garage, or any enclosed area.
  4. Keep out of the reach of children.
  5. When the LP gas cylinder is connected to the gas grill, the gas grill and LP gas cylinder must be operated outside in a properly ventilated place.


  1. Never connect your gas grill to an LP gas cylinder without the regulator provided, and NEVER TO AN UNREGULATED LP GAS SUPPLY. The regulator supplied with the barbecue must be used.
  2. Always leak-test the LP gas cylinder to regulator connection when connecting the LP gas cylinder to the appliance. See “Leak Testing” (page 5).
  3. Do not operate appliance if the smell of LP gas is present. Extinguish all flame and determine the source of the LP gas leak before proceeding. Do not ignite the appliance until the LP gas leak has been found and sealed.
  4. Always shut off the LP gas cylinder valve when the appliance is not in use.
  1. LP gas grills are equipped with a hose and regulator with a QCC®-1 Quick Closing Coupling.
  2. The QCC®-1 coupling contains a magnetic Flow Limiting Device which will limit the flow of gas should there be a leak between the regulator and the appliance valve. This device will activate if the cylinder valve is opened while the appliance valves are open. Be sure the appliance valves are off before the cylinder valve is opened to prevent accidental activation.
  3. The QCC®-1 coupling incorporates a heat-sensitive hand wheel that will cause the back check module in the QCC®-1 cylinder valve to close when exposed to temperatures between 240° and 300°F. Should this occur, do not attempt to reconnect the hand wheel. Remove the hose/regulator assembly and replace it with a new one.
  4. The pressure regulator is set at 11 inches WC (water column) and is for use with LP gas only. The hose and hose couplings comply with CGA Standard CAN 1.83. No modifications or substitutions should be attempted.
  5. Protect the hose from dripping grease and do not allow the hose to touch any hot surface, including the base casting of the barbecue.
  6. Inspect the seal in the QCC®-1 cylinder valve when replacing the LP gas cylinder or once per year whichever is more frequent. Replace the seal if there is any indication of cracks, creases, or abrasion.
  7. Inspect the hose before each use. If the hose is cracked, cut, abraded, or damaged in any way, the appliance must not be operated.
  8. For repair or replacement of the hose/regulator assembly, contact customer service.


  1. Be sure LP gas cylinder valve and appliance valves are “OFF.”
  2. Place full LP gas cylinder in LP gas cylinder well and secure as per assembly instructions.
  3. Center the nipple in the LP gas cylinder valve and hold it in place. Using the other hand, turn the hand wheel clockwise until there is a positive stop. Do not use tools. Hand tighten only. When making the connection, hold the regulator in parallel with the LP gas cylinder valve, so as not to cross-thread the connection.
  4. Leak test connections. See “Leak Testing” (Page 5).
  5. Refer to lighting instructions. To avoid activating the Flow Limiting Device when lighting, open the LP gas cylinder valve slowly with the appliance valves off. If the Flow Limiting Device is accidentally activated, turn the LP cylinder valve off then turn all burners to the OFF position. Disconnect the regulator from the cylinder. Wait two minutes. Re-attach the regulator to the cylinder. Open the cylinder valve slowly. Wait one minute. Light grill as per “Lighting” (page 7)

Always close the LP gas cylinder valve and remove the coupling nut before moving LP gas cylinder from specified operation position.


All factory-made connections have been carefully tested for gas leaks. However, shipping and handling may have loosened a gas fitting.


  • Test all fittings for leaks before using your gas grill
  • Test for leaks every time you disconnect and reconnect a gas fitting, at least once per year or after any period of nonuse
  • Do not smoke while testing
  • Never test for leaks with a lit match or open flame.
  • Test for leaks outdoors.




  1. Prepare a soap solution of one part water and one part liquid detergent.
  2. Extinguish any open flame or cigarettes in the area.
  3. Make sure that gas grill valves are “OFF.”
  4. Make sure that the cylinder valve is “OFF.”
  5. With a full gas cylinder, open the cylinder valve slowly.
  6. Brush the soap solution on each connection.
  7. A leak is identified by a flow of bubbles from the area of the leak.
  8. If a leak is detected, close the gas cylinder valve or the gas supply valve, tighten the connection, and retest.
  9. If the leak persists, contact your gas grill dealer for assistance. Do not attempt to operate the appliance if a leak is present.

If your gas grill is equipped with a side burner or rear burner:

  1. Follow steps 1 – 5 above
  2. Place a fingertip over the opening in the orifice at the end of the hose.
  3. Turn “SIDE”/”REAR” control to “HIGH.”
  4. Brush soap solution on each connection between the orifice and the control valve.
  5. Turn “SIDE”/”REAR” control to “OFF”.
  • Always keep venturi tubes clean
  • Blockages in the venturi tubes caused by spiders, insects and nests can cause a flashback fire
  • Although the gas grill may still light, the backed up gas can ignite and cause a fire around the venturi tubes at the control panel or the side burner


If a flashback fire occurs, turn off the gas at the source immediately Inspect and clean the venturi tubes (main burner, side burner, rear burner) if any of the following symptoms occur:

  1. You smell gas.
  2. Your gas grill does not reach temperature.
  3. Your gas grill heats unevenly.
  4. The burners make a popping noise.


  1. Be sure that the cylinder valve is “OFF”.
  2. When the gas grill is cool, remove the burner fasteners. Proceed to lift the burners from the gas grill housing.
  3. Clean the venturi tubes with a pipe cleaner or venturi cleaning tool (Accessory #77310 or #18270).Broil-King-20094-Freestanding-Propane-Gas-Grill-Guide-fig-8
  4. Lower the burner into position in the gas grill housing, making sure that the venturi tubes are correctly aligned and fitted on the orifices.

  1. Turn the LP gas cylinder valve or gas supply valve off.
  2. Turn control knobs to “OFF”.


NEVER cover slots, holes, or passages in the front or bottom of the grill or cover an entire rack with material such as aluminum foil. Doing so blocks airflow through the grill and may cause overheating or carbon monoxide poisoning.

First Time Use
Before cooking on your gas grill for the first time, clean the components and preheat the appliance to rid it of any odors or foreign matter in the following manner:

  • Remove and clean the cooking grids and Flav-R-Wave™ with mild soap and water
  • With cooking grids and Flav-R-Wave™ removed, light the gas grill following lighting instructions (see Page 15) and operate the gas grill on “Medium” for 30 minutes. Next, turn the gas source off then turn all control knobs to the “OFF” position
  • Let the grill cool, then replace the Flav-R-Wave™
  • Season the cooking grids by coating grids with an organic cold processed cooking oil with a high smoke point, light the grill, and operate on Med/Low for 30 minutes
  • Recommended cooking oils: o Avocado Oil – smoke point (260C/500F) o Rice Bran Oil – smoke point (255C/490F) o Canola Oil – smoke point (204C/400F)
  • You are ready to grill. Proceed to “Preheating”


  • Preheat the gas grill on MEDIUM with the lid closed for 15 minutes
  • Clean cold grids with a nylon grill brush (Item # 65643) or hot grids with a stainless steel wire grill brush (Item #65225, 64014, 64034) and carefully inspected to ensure there are no broken bristles left on the grid
  • Coat the grids with a high smoke point cooking oil
  • Adjust heat as appropriate for what you are grilling

Lid Position
The position of the lid during cooking is a matter of personal preference, but the gas grill cooks faster, uses less fuel, and controls the temperature best with the lid closed. A closed lid also imparts a smokier flavor to meat cooked directly on the grid, and is essential for smoking and convection cooking.

Vaporization Systems
Your gas grill is designed for use with the included Flav-R-Wave™ vaporization system. Do not use lava rock, ceramic briquettes or any other vaporization system other than the one that came with the gas grill.


The direct grilling method involves cooking the food on grids directly over a lit burner. Direct grilling is the most popular method for most single-serving items such as steaks, chops, fish, burgers, kebabs, and vegetables

  1. Prepare food in advance to avoid delay and timing problems. If using marinade or spices, they should be applied before placing meat on the cooking grid. If basting with sauces, they should be applied in the last 2-4 minutes of grilling to avoid burning.
  2. Organize the area around the gas grill to include forks, tongs, oven mitts, sauces, and seasonings to allow you to stay in the vicinity of the gas grill while cooking.
  3. Bring meat to room temperature just before grilling. Trim excess fat from meat to minimize the “flare-ups” that are caused by dripping grease.
  4. Preheat the gas grill to the desired temperature with the lid closed.
  5. Coat the grids with vegetable or olive oil to prevent food from sticking to the grids.
  6. Hold the salt when cooking meats on the gas grill. The meat will stay juicier if the salt is added after cooking.
  7. To prevent steaks from “drying out,” use tongs rather than a fork and start on “MEDIUM/HIGH” to sear the meat and seal juices in. Reduce the heat and extend cooking times when grilling thicker cuts of meat.
  8. Learn to test when the meat is done by time and feel. Meat firms up as it cooks. When the meat is soft it is rare. When it is firm, it is well done.
  9. Follow the perfect steak grilling guide for most meat, fish, poultry, and vegetables.


CHICKENMED / WELLMED / LOW4 / 4 / 4 / 416

This method is ideal for cooking large cuts of meat such as roasts or poultry. The food is cooked by hot air circulating it.

  • For most applications of convection cooking with and without a rotisserie, a drip pan is recommended to catch the drippings. Place the drip pan on top of the Flav-R-Wave, beneath the center of the food. Put half to one inch of water in the drip pan. Fruit juice, wine, or marinade may also be added to enhance the flavor. Do not let the drip pan run dry
  • Convection cooking without a rotisserie is best with the lid closed and the heat reduced. All burners can be set to low or the outside burners can be set to medium and the middle burner(s) can be turned off. Turning the center burner off will prevent juices in the drip pan from burning
  • Before placing the meat on the gas grill, baste the meat with vegetable oil. This will enhance browning on the outside of the meat
  • When cooking without a drip pan, close attention must be paid to avoid the risk of a grease fire and is not recommended
  • Turn the gas grill off and allow it to cool before removing the drip pan. The fat drippings are highly flammable and must be handled carefully to avoid injury
  • For convection cooking roasts and poultry without a rotisserie, put meat in a roasting rack directly on grids
BEEF ROAST6 – 10 Lb.MED / LOW3 – 5 HRS
PORK ROAST6 – 10 Lb.MED / LOW3 – 5 HRS

Follow the steps for Indirect Convection Cooking. (See left)


  • The rotisserie can accommodate up to 7 kg (15lb) of meat with the limiting factor of rotating clearance. For best results, the meat should be centered on the center line of the spit to eliminate an out-of-balance condition
  • The rotisserie can be used with the cooking grids in place if space allows
  • Fasten the meat securely on the spit before placing it on the gas grill. For poultry, tie the wings and legs in tightly.


  • Certain models feature a rear burner for rotisserie cooking. The rear burner rotisserie method is the ultimate for cooking roasts and poultry. With the heat source located behind the food, there is no chance of a flare-up caused by fat drippings. A dish or drip pan placed below the spit will collect the juices for basting or for preparing a sauce
  • The spring-loaded rear burner may be easily removed when not in use.

  1. Loosen the rod handle to allow the balance to turn freely.
  2. Set the rotisserie rod in the slots of the gas grill casting. Let the heaviest side of the meat rotate to the bottom.
  3. Adjust the balance to the top of the rod, opposite the heaviest side of the meat.
  4. Tighten the rod handle. Periodically, check to see if the meat turns smoothly while cooking. Adjust the spit balance as necessary. CAUTION: Use an oven mitt when adjusting the spit balance.



  1. The accurate way to determine when a large piece of meat is done is to use a probe thermometer. Insert the thermometer at an angle so the sturdy pointed metal tip rests in the center of the thickest part of the meat. Be careful that it doesn’t touch the spit or the bone, and that the point is not resting in fat (you will notice much less resistance when probing in fat).
  2. When the thermometer displays the desired temperature the meat is done. Add your sauces during the last few minutes of cooking time and let the meat stand for about 15 minutes to firm up. Carve and serve.
    • poultry: insert the tip of the thermometer in the thickest part of the thigh close to the body
    • ham or roasts: insert the tip of the thermometer in the center of the heaviest section of the meat


  1. Have 3” of bone sawed from the small end of the leg.
  2. Leave meat around the bone intact to form a flap.
  3. Put a spit fork on the rod.
  4. Fold the flap up and run the rod through the flap and leg.
  5. Put a second fork on the rod and insert forks at each end of the leg. Balance test. Tighten screws.



  1. With the breast down, bring the neck skin up over the cavity.
  2. Turn under the edges of the skin; skewer to the back skin.
  3. Loop twine around the skewer and tie.
  4. Turn the breast side up; tie or skewer wings to the body.
  5. Put a spit fork on a rod. Insert rod in neck skin parallel to backbone and exit just above the tail.
  6. Put a second fork on the rod and insert forks in the breast and tail. Balance test. Tighten screws.
  7. Tie tail to rod with twine. Cross legs; tie to ta



  1. Tie or skewer wings to the body.
  2. Put a spit fork on the rod. Place chickens on the rod as demonstrated in the above diagram.
  3. Loop twine around tails and legs; tie to rod.
  4. Put the second fork on the rod and insert the forks into the chicken. Tighten screws.


To ensure optimal performance and safety, the following components should be inspected and cleaned as required before use of your gas grill. COOKING GRIDS – CAST IRON, CAST STAINLESS & HEAVY ROD STAINLESS BROIL KING® Deep V cast iron and cast stainless cooking grids provide unsurpassed heat retention and grilling performance.

BROIL KING® Heavy Rod stainless grids provide maximum durability and good heat retention and good grilling performance. BROIL KING® cast iron grids are coated with a porcelain enamel finish to protect the grids and reduce the tendency of food to stick to grids. Regular use and care improve the performance and longevity of the grids. For optimum performance:

  • Use medium heat settings to preheat and grill to avoid burning off the protective seasoned coating.
  • Avoid applying sugar-based marinades or salt to meat before grilling, apply sugar-based marinades at the end of grilling and salt after grilling
  • Use oil-based marinades, avoid water-based marinades
  • Lightly coat food with cooking oil of your choice before grilling
  • Turn and rotate your grids periodically
  • Ensure the surface of the grid is always coated with a light layer of oil. This helps prevent rust and deterioration and improves the grid’s non-stick performance
  • If rust does occur, burn off the grid, brush with a good quality grill brush, and re-season.

During long periods of inactivity, grids should be seasoned, and then stored in a dry place. The grids may be wrapped in protective plastic food wrap. After periods of storage, burn off grids, wash, dry with a paper towel, and re-season with high smoke point cooking oil.

The grease tray is in the pullout drawer located under the control panel. Clean regularly.


The following components should be inspected and cleaned at least once a year or after any period of storage over 30 days to ensure optimal performance, safety, and efficiency. BURNER Remove the burner and inspect for cracks and deterioration. Clean venturi tubes using a pipe cleaner or venturi brush to eliminate any blockages. See “Venturi Tubes.” (Page 6) While the burner is removed, remove the grease shields, and clean the interior of the cook box by scraping the sides and bottom of the cook box and vacuuming. HOSE Inspect and replace if necessary. For propane see “Hose and Regulator.”

If white oxidation spots appear, wash the outside of the aluminum cook box with a mild soap and water solution. Rinse the surfaces thoroughly then wipe them with a cloth dipped in cooking oil to restore the luster. For repair of paint scratches and scuffs, use a good quality HIGH temperature (600°F) spray paint for touch-up.

Wash with soap and water. Use stainless steel cleaner or “Bar Keepers Friend” to polish and remove stains or rust marks if they occur. Weathering and extreme heat can cause a stainless steel lid to turn a tan color. This is discoloration and is not considered a manufacturing defect.

Wash with soap and water. REPLACEMENT PARTS If a problem is found with the regulator, hose, burner, or control valves, do not attempt repair. See your dealer, or approved service center, or contact the factory for repairs or replacement parts. To ensure optimum performance, use only original BROIL KING® replacement parts.

“Genuine BROIL KING® Gas Grill Parts” must always be used for replacement. Use of any other parts will automatically nullify the above warranty. BURNERS The life of BROIL KING® burners (made of stainless steel) depends almost entirely on proper use, cleaning, and maintenance. This warranty does not cover failure due to improper use and maintenance. For proper burner maintenance instructions see page 10.

cast iron cooking grids are coated with durable porcelain enamel to assist in cleaning and reduce the tendency of food to stick to the grid. Porcelain is essentially a glass coating. Some chipping may occur if mishandled. This will not affect the use or performance of the grids.

The grids are not warranted against chipping or rusting due to mishandling. Consult “Maintenance” (page 10) for proper cooking grid care and cleaning instructions. VAPORIZATION SYSTEMS BROIL KING® Gas Grills are designed for use with Flav-R-Wave™ vaporization systems. Use of any other product will nullify the warranty.

The Flav-R-Wave™ is warranted against defects in materials or rust through for 3 years on Monarch, Signet, Baron, 5 years on Sovereign, Regal, and Imperial, and 2 years on all other models from date of purchase. Surface rust will not affect the performance of the Flav-R-Wave™ and is not covered by the warranty. See “Maintenance” (page 10) for proper Flav-R-Wave care instructions.

All warranty is handled directly by BROIL KING®. Parts must be returned to the BROIL KING® Warranty Department, shipping charges prepaid, accompanied by Model Number, Serial Number, and if your grill is not registered, proof of purchase (copy of sales slip or invoice). If inspection confirms the defect, BROIL KING® will repair or replace such part following the terms of the warranty. On receipt of a letter or fax (not by phone), BROIL KING® may at its option not require parts or parts to be returned.

The above warranty is administered by the BROIL KING® distributor in your country. Contact your dealer for the name of your BROIL KING® distributor.
