LOCATING GRILL – Grill Cut-Out Dimensions

Your grill is SELF-RIMMING, meaning the lip of grill rests on top of the counter edge around the cut-out with the front of grill which is Free-Hanging from counter top. Because of this, there is No Need for any Trim-Kit like with many other grills on the market.

  1. Maintain 24” Clearance from any Combustible Materials in ANY direction of Grill.
  2. If any combustible materials within 24” distance, must have Heat Barrier like Grill Jacket, or other Non-Combustible type like Bricks, Hardy Board, Metal.
  3. Orient the grill so the Prevailing winds are not blowing into the rear or side of grill.

WARNING: Never build shelf or enclose interior space under the BBQ Cut-Out. The Ruby Grill is Self-Rimming and is supported by the top counter surface on the Back and Sides, the front of grill is designed to Free-Hang. The bottom of Grill needs to be open to allow for proper ventilation.

LOCATING GRILL -- Installing into Open Area

Windy Conditions

Your grill is specially designed to draw fresh air in through the front, and in direct to the bottom burners. When grilling the hot gases are then released through the back of grill through a venting system. Using your grill in windy conditions may disrupt the front-to-back air flow.

  1. For breezy days, be careful not to leave the front hood down for more than 15 minutes, when the burners are on. (Never leave grill unattended when in operation)
  2. If you suspect the grill is overheating, using an oven mitt, open the front hood. Then adjust the burner control knob to off position.
  3. Orient the grill so the Prevailing winds are not blowing into the rear or side of grill.

ATTENTION: Take special precaution when installing grill in open Breezy area, check the direction of Prevailing Wind Direction, if back of grill is facing any oncoming wind or breeze, be sure to protect the back of grill, and erect a partition wall, or only use grill with hood open on breezy days.

Windy Area

Positioning your grill in your backyard is more often thought of how it is pleasing to the eye, but more important than this is how that it functions correctly. Unlike an indoor appliance, your grill has to combat many outside weather influences in an all manner of weather related instances, most severely is Wind.

  1. Maintain proper Prevailing wind, grill direction – with the front of grill facing in to the wind, and the back of grill in the direct wind is blowing.
  2. If direction of wind is unclear, or difficult to combat even with preventative measures, then always grill with the hood open, and when hood is closed – always be within close proximity to grill and monitor it that it does not overheat.
  3. If wind or breeze is in the direction of back of grill, you must erect partition wall of 14” height so that the top of grill hood is covered by several inches. If this is not done, you must grill with hood open and or when hood is closed stand in close area to grill and monitor if the grill overheats.
