Cleaning Your Cal Flame Grill

g-series-5-burner-env-med

To ensure safe and proper maintenance, we recommend you follow these directions carefully. Clean internal parts of the grill regularly as determined by the amount of use and foods cooked. The entire grill should be cleaned at least once a year. In addition, keep the area around your grill clear and free from combustible materials, gasoline, and other flammable vapors and liquids. Do not obstruct the flow of combustion and ventilation air. DISCONNECT ELECTRICAL SUPPLY BEFORE CLEANING ANY PART OF THE GRILL.

These instructions describe the best way to care for your stainless steel. They apply to grills and barbecue islands with stainless steel fixtures. Although stainless steel grills will discolor and accumulate grime with regular use, they can keep their original shine with periodic cleaning. We strongly recommend using a surface protectant to prevent smudging and surface rust from accumulating. The easiest way to clean the grill is immediately after cooking is completed. Doing so will extend the life of your grill, prevent grease fires, and present a pleasant appearance while you grill.

Stainless Steel Care and Cleaning

1. Clean Thoroughly clean stains, food, and grime using a sponge or damp cloth with warm water and a mild dish soap. Use Fantastik or Formula 409 to remove heavier soil.

2. Rinse Thoroughly rinse all surfaces and dry them completely with a clean towel. Do not allow stainless steel to air dry.

3. Polish We strongly recommend that you apply a surface protectant to all exposed stainless steel surfaces.

Spray a small amount of WD-40 or Sheila Shine on a piece of paper towel and rub with the grain over the surface of the appliance. Using a clean terry cloth or paper towel, polish the appliance by rubbing with the grain.

Follow these directions and your grill will be looking spiffy in no time!

Grilling Tips!

Grilling is an art form, it’s a skill that is learned and acquired through practice.

grill-a-la-cart-series

1. Set up 2 grill zones — one for direct heat, and the other for indirect heat. Use the direct heat to sear meats and veggies, and move them to the cool side to allow the food to finish grilling without overcooking.

2. Leave the lid off for ingredients that cook quickly like shrimp and vegetables and put the lid on for longer-grilling items like poultry and steak.

3. Season burger meat liberally with salt, pepper and canola oil. Allow cheeses to melt completely by closing the lid for a delicious melted cheesy goodness.

4. If you don’t have time to marinate your meats, a dry rub is a quick way to add flavor to grilling. Keep a well stocked spice rack for the kitchen and the grill! Double points!

5. Keep vegetables whole or in larger sections so they’re easier to manage on the grill and keeps them from falling through the grates. For smaller items, use water-soaked wooden skewers it makes transferring and flipping easier and quicker.

6. Do not open and touch the food too much. Let the grill do it’s job and let is stand a bit before flipping. If you check on the food and it’s sticking a little, it’s not done cooking. Turn the food only once and let the fire be your guide.Premium 4 Burner Grill

DIY Projects to Make Your Backyard BBQ the Event of the Season

14716571_1152040364880930_7146457415947386880_n

Stamps                                                                                                                               Cut parchment paper into square sheets, and then label them with stamps! This idea can be used for labeling rare, medium, and well done meat, as well as labeling meal options for your vegetarian buddies who love grilled veggies.

Chalkboard Menu                                                                                                       Make your guests’ mouths water as they read over a menu displayed on your CalFlame grill! Coat a piece of plywood, big or small, in black chalkboard paint. Then, grab some chalk and get to writing!

Hole Punch Plates                                                                                                    Paper plates save you a lot of time when it comes to clean up, but hardly add anything to the atmosphere. Try hole punching the side of your plates and tying napkins and plastic utensils to each plate with twine. Not only does is look snazzy, but it frees up a hand to scoop up more food!

Repel Bugs                                                                                                                 Don’t let insects bug your guests during your party! Add some sage to your warm barbeque after you’ve finished grilling for a natural way to ward off unwanted bugs.

S’mores Bar A backyard barbeque is incomplete without s’mores! Light up your CalFlame grill and roast some marshmallows, and don’t forget all the goodies! Set up the graham crackers and chocolate near the grill, and for an extra chocolate-y treat, keep chocolate syrup nearby.

Cal Flame Top Gun Convection Drop In Barbecue Grill

This Father’s Day wouldn’t it be nice to have a new drop in grill to show off in your backyard.  Plus, this drop-in grill fits nicely into any appropriately sized barbecue cart or island and features an illuminated glass window and thermometer on the hood so you can keep ! The powerful convection fan circulates 75,000 BTUs of heat throughout the grilling area to cook your food quicker and more evenly than you ever thought possible.

It features a grand total of five cast stainless steel burners that utilize energy from LP or natural gas to produce up to 15,000 BTUs each. We say each because every burner operates independently so you can prepare a variety of meals at the same time or perhaps you only want to cook a little something for yourself and save energy costs in the process!

There’s no need to light up the entire grill if all you want is a burger, right? Especially when lighting up the entire grill means heating 1,000 square inches of cooking space! With that much surface area plus a warming rack for baked potatoes andmore, you’ll always have room for more food when more guests smell that good home-cooking!

Then, of course, there’s the main attraction: the infrared rotisserie. This full sized infrared rotisserie holds up to a 35lb bird (or two chickens) and mounts easily to the left or right side.

You say you like to grill? Prove it with the Cal Flame 5 Burner Convection Grill with rotisserie. Cut-out size measures 38W x 22D x 9H inches. Includes drip pan.
