****** Page 2 ****** WELCOME Welcome to Kamado cooking! Our Vision Grills Kamado is based on 3,000+ years of clay pot cooking from around the world. Over generations our ancestors have continued to refine Kamado techniques for grilling, smoking, baking and cooking all types of food, including meats, poultry, fish and vegetables. Kamado cooking locks in moisture and provides a variety of ways to infuse different tastes into your foods, turning weekend grillers into neighborhood chefs. Our Vision Grills Kamado builds on this heritage with fresh aesthetics, safety and convenience features, a user-friendly easy-lift lid with spring assist and high-quality materials to define a new industry standard for design and innovation. The thick ceramic construction of our grill provides superior thermal insulation allowing you to grill, cook, bake or smoke regardless of the season – from the hot summer days in our home town of St. Louis to the cold snowy days in Bangor, Maine. In this manual we provide the basics to get you cooking and invite you to our website, wwwuisiongclllscom, where we share recipes, detailed Use & Care information and contact information if you need more help. From our entire team here at Vision Grills, thanks for your purchase. Here’s to becoming the destination eatery in your neighborhood! Model Number: Patent Pending RL-W19DIL5

****** Page 3 ****** VISION GRILLS COOKING WITH YOUR KAMADO Your new Vision Grills Kamado is the complete outdoor cooking appliance that allows you to sear, grill, bake and smoke all types of food. For best results, we recommend using natural lump charcoal made from hardwoods. Compared to briquettes, natural charcoals start faster, burn cleaner and longer, reach higher temperatures and produce less ash. Leftover natural charcoal also relights for re-use. Before restarting the grill, knock off excess ashes from remaining charcoal. Routinely empty ashes, but only do so when grill is cool. Starting your Vision Kamado Grill is simple and fast: Open top and bottom vents wide open, fill the inner fire bowl with enough charcoal to cover the air holes, then light the charcoal using either an electric starter or approved grill starters. After several coals are burning, spread evenly, adjust top and bottom vents, and wait for the Kamado to reach your desired cooking temperature. As needed, add more charcoal by using the flip grate feature, being careful not to burn yourself with the hot food or cooking grate. RENDEZVOUS cEnm,uc KAMADO GRILL Patent Pending

****** Page 4 ****** STARTING Step 1: Measuring Charcoal Set bottom vents wide open and open lid. Fill the fire bowl with enough charcoal to cover the air holes. For smoking foods at low temperatures for longer periods of time (1.5 hours+) you will need to add a little more charcoal, up to approximately 2″ (5 cm) above the 1 same air holes. Mound charcoal over perforated stainless steel electric starter pocket. Use lump charcoal for best results. Step 2: Starting Charcoal Open the electric starter flipper door and insert starter as far as possible then plug in. Wait until edges of charcoal turn white and flames are licking the mound of charcoal. On average, it takes 8 – 12 minutes to start the charcoal. After coals are started, unplug electric starter and store in holster located under ProZoneTM. Electric Starter sold separately on some models. Step 3: Setting Temperature Once charcoal is lit, level it out for even heat distribution and close the lid. Set top and bottom vents to the desired setting (refer to the Setting Temperature section in this manual for specific calibrations to use to attain the desired cooking temperature). Give your Kamado 8 -12 minutes to settle into the cooking temperature you want before putting food on the grill. NOTE: If smoking, do not let temperature exceed 2750F/ 1350C. Spread hot charcoal evenly over grate. B) Set top and bottom vents for desired cooking temperature. Let temperature stabilize.

Keep the temperature low, it takes hours to cool down. Increasing air flow through top and bottom air vents increases cooking temperature, while decreasing air flow lowers the cooking temperature. Closing both top and bottom vents starves the charcoal of oxygen and stifles down the fire. *Caution – Continuous grilling at extreme high temperatures may cause the felt to burn. Prevent Flare-Ups: If the lid is lifted too quickly, oxygen will rush inside the grill, causing a flare-up. To prevent a flare-up, lift the lid 1″/2.5cm and count to five before slowly opening the lid wide open. RENDEZVOUS CERAMIC KAMADO GRILL Patent Pending

****** Page 9 ****** WARNING PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE MANUAL BEFORE OPERATING YOUR VISION GRILLS KAMADO. PLEASE KEEP THIS MANUAL FOR FUTURE REFERENCE. ATTENTION! Use caution when cooking, as grill surfaces get hot. To avoid burns, always use protective gloves to adjust top and bottom vents when grill is in use. Do not wear loose clothing near the grill. ATTENTION! This barbecue will become very hot, do not move it during operation. For outdoor cooking use only. Do not operate grill indoors or in an enclosed space. Use grill only in well-ventilated areas. Keep immediate area around the grill free from combustible materials. Allow for at least 3 feet/ 1 meter of clearance around grill (house, other outdoor products, hanging tree limbs, shrubs, etc.) WARNING! Keep children and pets away from the grill at all times. Do not allow children to operate grill. Never leave grill unattended when in use. Grill should be placed securely on a level base prior to use. Only operate grill on a hard, stable, level surface (concrete patio, ground, etc.) capable of supporting the weight of the grill when loaded with food. Never operate grill on wood support surface, wood deck or like combustible support surfaces. Never attempt to move grill when in operation or cooling down. Never operate this grill within 25 feet/ 7.5 meters of any flammable liquid. Never operate this grill within 10 feet/3 meters of a gas cylinder. The grill should not be placed under combustible structures, such as garage, porch, patio, or carport. Burning charcoal produces carbon monoxide, an odorless gas which can cause death. The use of alcohol, prescription or non-prescription drugs may impair the operator’s ability to properly assemble or safely operate the grill. Do not use on boats or recreational vehicles. CAUTION: Never use lighter fluid, gasoline, or other volatiles to start your charcoal, as it is dangerous and will leave a residual taste in your food. Use only firelighters complying to EN 1860-3. Use utmost care when adding charcoal to grill. Electric start- up is recommended. Dispose of cooled ashes by placing them in aluminum foil, soaking with water and discarding in a non- combustible container. Always wait for grill to be completly cooled before opening built-in ash drawer. When cooking above 5000F/2600C, with both top and bottom vents closed, rapidly opening the lid creates a sudden rush of oxygen into the grill, which can cause a flare-up. When in this cooking mode, we recommend that, prior to opening the lid, you open top and bottom vents to allow oxygen to stabilize inside the grill before opening, minimizing the possibility of flare-ups.
