VERY IMPORTANT: Burner tubes must reengage valve
Poultry and large cuts of meat cook slowly to perfection on the
grill by indirect heat. Place food over unlit burner(s); the heat
from lit burners circulates gently throughout the grill, cooking
meat or poultry without the touch of a direct flame.
This method greatly reduces flare-ups when cooking extra fatty
cuts because there is no direct flame to ignite the fats and
juices that drip during cooking.
Indirect Cooking Instructions
• Always cook with the lid closed.
• Due to weather conditions, cooking times may vary.
During cold and windy conditions the temperature setting
may need to be increased to insure sufficient cooking
• Place food over unlit burner(s)
Food safety is a very important part of enjoying the outdoor
cooking experience. To keep food safe from harmful bacteria,
follow these four basic steps:
Clean: Wash hands, utensils, and surfaces with hot soapy
water before and after handling raw meat and poultry.
Separate: Separate raw meats and poultry from ready-to-eat
foods to avoid cross contamination. Use a clean platter and
utensils when removing cooked foods.
Cook: Cook meat and poultry thoroughly to kill bacteria. Use a
thermometer to ensure proper internal food temperatures.
Chill: Refrigerate prepared foods and leftovers promptly.

How To Tell If Meat Is Grilled Thoroughly
• Meat and poultry cooked on a grill often browns very fast on
the outside. Use a meat thermometer to be sure food has
reached a safe internal temperature, and cut into food to
check for visual signs of doneness.
• Whole poultry should reach 180° F; breasts, 170° F. Juices
should run clear and flesh should not be pink.
• Hamburgers made of any ground meat or poultry should
reach 160° F, and be brown in the middle with no pink juices.
Beef, veal and lamb steaks, roasts and chops can be cooked
to 145°F. All cuts of pork should reach 160° F.
• NEVER partially grill meat or poultry and finish cooking later.
Cook food completely to destroy harmful bacteria.
• When reheating takeout foods or fully cooked meats like hot
dogs, grill to 165° F, or until steaming hot.
WARNING: To ensure that it is safe to eat, food must be
cooked to the minimum internal temperatures listed in the table
