1. Where do I find the model and serial number on my barbecue?

The model and serial numbers are located on the gas caution sticker. This sticker is located in one of two locations, either on the bottom shelf down by the wheels, or on the rear cart support bar, located on the back of the barbecue just below the bottom casting.

2. Can I store my barbecue outside?

Itís best to store your barbecue under cover in a damp-free place such as a shed.† Donít leave it exposed to the weather.† If you have to leave your barbecue outside, make sure you protect it with a heavy duty weatherproof cover, available from most DIY stores and garden centres.

Gas bottles should not be stored inside the house, they must be stored in a well-ventilated area away from any source of ignition.†
