Both the Performer Deluxe and Summit Charcoal models come with their own built-in SNAP-JET Gas Ignition System.
1, Remove grill lid before operating gas feature. (Failure to do so can cause a gas build-up that can
cause a fire or explosion which can cause serious bodily injury or death, or damage to property.)
2, Open bottom bowl dampers.
3, Place your fuel over the burner.
4, Push in tabs on gas control cover and lift to open.
5, Turn gas supply on (counter-clockwise) at least one full turn. (Do not lean over open barbecue while lighting)
6, Push and hold igniter button until burner ignites. (Flame may be hard to see on a bright day)
7, After charcoal has ignited (approximately 5 minutes), turn gas control knob OFF (clockwise) until it is closed. (Ensure cover is closed completely)
8, You can begin cooking when briquets have a light coating of grey ash (approximately 25-30 minutes).
To extinguish: Turn gas control knob OFF (clockwise) until it is closed.

4, Turn gas supply on at the regulator control knob by turning it clockwise to the ON position.
5, Open the grill lid. (Failure to open the lid before igniting the grill’s burner, or not waiting five minutes
to allow the gas to clear if the grill does not light, may result in an explosive flareup which can cause serious bodily injury or death)
6, Position the charcoal on the fuel grate.
7, Push burner control knob in and turn it counterclockwise to the on position. You will hear the igniter click. Repeat until burner ignites.
8, Check that the burner is lit by observing a flame. (If burner fails to ignite within five seconds, stop, turn the burner control knob to off, and wait five minutes to allow the gas to clear before you try again or
light with a match)
- Do not lean over the open grill while igniting.
- Flame may be hard to see on a bright day.
9, When done, turn the burner control knob to the the OFF position.
NOTE: The burner is only meant for igniting charcoal, not for cooking. Turn burner control knob off promptly after charcoal is lit to preserve the fuel in your disposable cartridge. Turn gas supply off at
