CARE & MAINTENANCE
Your Kamado Grill is made of quality materials, so general care and maintenance is minimal. The best way to protect your Kamado from the elements is with a Grill Cover.
Check the position and tightness of the bands at the beginning of each grilling season or annually.
If the bands are in the proper position, use a 10mm wrench and Allen key to check the tightness of each band connector. You should not be able to easily turn the Allen key while holding the nut in place. If loose, tighten firmly.
If your Kamado Grill is not used for an extended period of time, moisture can be trapped inside the grill and you may see areas of mold or mildew on the cooking grate or internal ceramics. This can easily be eliminated, because Kamado Grills are self-cleaning. Do not use bleach or other cleaning products. It will add an unpleasant taste to food.
Self-cleaning your Kamado Grill:
1. Add charcoal, light it and allow the grill to heat to a temperature of 600°F for 15 minutes with the dome closed.
2. Allow the grill to cool down completely.
3. Before cooking, brush the cooking grate with a standard grill brush. You can also use a soft bristle brush on the ceramics to remove any residue.
The gasket material will degrade over time. Depending on the amount of grill use, the exposed gasket material on the base and dome and the neck of the dome may need to be replaced every 2-3 years.
