Assemble the Pit Boss Pellet Grill.
Fill the hopper with wood pellets.
Plug in and start up the pellet grill, keeping the lid open.
Hold the “Prime” button until you hear pellets begin to drop into the firepot.
Once pellets are in the firepot, stop holding the “Prime” button and wait about 5-7 minutes with the lid open for a torchy burner lighting sound
Close the lid and turn the heat up as high as it will go to the maximum setting, at least 450°F.
Let the pellet grill run at this temperature for 20-30 minutes. This will burn off any nasty chemical residues on the interior and help cure the paint on the outside.
After 20-30 minutes, turn off the pellet grill. Leave it plugged in as the fan needs to continue spinning to burn off the remaining pellets in the firepot. This is NORMAL. Do not unplug the pellet grill or this process cannot happen. The fan will turn off automatically when it is done.
