Pressure Build Up
ISSUE: Small explosion while grill is heating up.
CAUSE: Closing the lid while igniting.
- It is so important to follow the "Lighting Instructions" in your owner's manual, leaving the lid open until the fire rod ignites the pellets in the firepot.
- If there are too many pellets in the firepot, the grill is going to smoke heavily and pressure will build inside the unit if you have closed the lid.
- The heavy concentration of smoke can ignite when the firepot catches, causing a small explosion in the unit, which can blow the door open and potentially cause harm to anyone near it.
- Leave the lid open when starting the grill.
