FAQ

Masterbuilt has listened to Gravity Series user feedback and our design and engineering teams have made the following updates: updated lid/door switches for durability, porcelain coated middle and upper charcoal hopper, and a re-designed charcoal grate for less charcoal fall through. These new changes have been implemented in the Gravity Series 800 Griddle and will be included for the 560 & 1050 models arriving in 2021. For those wishing to upgrade, we will have all parts available for purchase on our website in 2021.

The Flat Top Griddle is exclusive to the Gravity Series 800. It is only available for this model due to the unique manifold required to operate the flat top surface.

No, these are meant to peel away without damaging the unit.

Yes, it is very important to preseason your grill before cooking. Pre-seasoning helps to burn off any chemicals and oils left over from the manufacturing process.

Steps to pre-season your grill:

1. Fill the hopper with charcoal approximately ¼ – ½  full.

2. Start your grill following the START-UP instructions and set the temperature to 250°F (121°C) for 60 minutes.

3. Next, set the temperature to 400°F (204°C) for 30 minutes.

4. After 30 minutes, shut down the grill following the SHUTDOWN instructions.

5. Allow grill to cool COMPLETELY.

6. After the grill has cooled, use a napkin or cloth to rub a light coat of cooking oil on smoke and sear grates, warming/smoking racks, charcoal grate and the inside of the grill lid and body.

7. Then, repeat steps 3-6 at a temperature of 350°F.

*Frequent seasoning helps to prevent rusting. If rusting occurs clean with a steel brush, apply vegetable shortening and heat as indicated above.

Lining your racks or grates with foil is not advised for optimal air flow and cooking results.

No, slides should be removed from the unit while cooking.

A lot of smoke is normal after your charcoal is lit when building a fire. As heat builds, the smoke will change to a thin blue smoke, this means you are ready to cook.

No, fire will bridge upward if the lid is left open.

For On-Demand smoke, add 1-2 chunks (no larger than your fist) directly to the ash bin. This will last approximately 2-3 hours.

For Controlled smoke, add four (4) pounds of charcoal and one (1) wood chunk, creating layers of charcoal and wood chunks.

No, this is not recommended.

No, we do not recommend smoking with any wood chunks larger than the size of a fist. Chunks larger than fist size will create too much heat on the door and cause damage to the unit.

Yes. It’s normal for heat to escape when the grill list is open. However, if the temperature is set to anything under 500°F and the lid is opened, the DigitalFan will run continuously to try and maintain the set temperature. If the temperature is set to anything above 500°F and the lid is opened, the grill will default the temperature to 500°F for safety. Once the lid is closed, the grill will return to the set temperature.

Close the all lids. Press and hold the Power button until the grill powers off. The two slides will be used to smother the fire. Put the small slide through the bottom slot and the larger slide through the upper slot. If the slide will not go in fully, it may have slid behind the shroud and was not properly inserted in the sleeve. Pull the slide out, make sure it is parallel to the slot and try again. The “M” should be facing upright.

*Failure to insert slides will cause remaining charcoal to burn and could cause damage to grill.

*Do not store or cover until the grill has completely cooled.

Grill should be covered in a dry area, away from direct sunlight.

For lump charcoal, if the lumps are too big, large voids are created in the hopper. Large lump charcoal reduces the overall amount of charcoal in the hopper to burn. For example: large lump charcoal with voids may only be 7 lbs of charcoal, whereas medium lump with minimal voids may be 10 lbs. 10 lbs will burn longer than 7 lbs. In addition, charcoal varies by brand and not all charcoal is made the same. Material sources, density and characteristics are different. The length of the burn time also depends on the outside temperature.

All Gravity Series model grills come with a one year warranty from date of purchase with proof of purchase.

Step 1: Ensure all connections are properly connected.

Step 2: Unplug the fan from the wiring harness near the hopper. Then power on controller and set temp. If controller resets/turns off then you have bad wiring.

Step 3: Unplug the fan from wiring harness near the hopper and plug the fan directly into the controller, bypassing the wiring harness. Power on controller then set your temperature. If controller resets/turns off then the fan is bad.

Step 4: Unplug the wiring harness and fan, turn on controller and set temp. If controller resets/turns off then it’s the controller.

No, this was preassembled on the newer models to hold the handles in place for shipping.

The metal inserts in front of fire brick are designed to protect the soft fire brick in transport and production. The metal panels are expected to degrade after use and the firebrick will be exposed. Firebrick material is food safe and capable of handling the high temperatures of the hopper burn area.
