Operating Instructions

How to Properly Operate the GrillGun

 

  1. Operate the GrillGun in a clear open-air area where it will be safe to operate a high temperature torch without burning down structures that you don’t intend to burn.
  2. Note the features of the GrillGun in the above Diagram and read
  3. Turn the gas valve (red knob on top of the GrillGun) fully clockwise (to the right) to shut off the “constant flow” valve when connected to a fuel source.  NOTE: Fuel will still flow through the GrillGun even if the gas valve is turned off, if the Handle Trigger is being squeezed.
  4. Hold the GrillGun in a manner so that you are not depressing the Handle Trigger lock or squeezing the Handle Trigger.
  5. Connect either a 1lb propane fuel bottle or the 8ft hose to a free-standing propane tank.
  6. If you are connected through the 8’ hose to the tank, then turn on the tank’s propane fuel valve at this time. (Be sure you are not squeezing the Handle Trigger).
  7. Barely turn on the GrillGun’s fuel valve (rotate counterclockwise, to the left).  The flame may not light when you pull the trigger, if you have the gas flow too high, so if the torch won’t light, turn down the gas flow rather than turning it up.
  8. Pull and release the finger Trigger to ignite the fuel flow.  The GrillGun should light and there should now be a small flame coming out of the fire bell.
  9. Now you can adjust the gas valve to provide a higher flow of fuel or you can leave it set to a low flow of fuel and use the Handle Trigger to give you a burst of high velocity flame.
  10. Depress the “Handle Trigger Lock” with your “pinky” finger to release the Handle trigger and squeeze it to provide the desired intensity of flame.  Note: Gas valve turned all the way up, is the same fuel flow as the Handle Trigger fully squeezed.
  11. Exercise caution and safety use the GrillGun to light your desired fire.
