cases of property damage, and four injuries.

designed to be used with propane gas. The name of the 
grill is located at the left corner of the exterior of 
the main burner lid. The serial number is printed on 
the CSA sticker which is located behind the door. A 
temperature gauge is located at the center of the main 
burner lid.

Sold at: Target, Costco Canada, H-E-B, Chase-Pitkin, and 
Gander Mountain stores nationwide from December 2003 
through March 2005 for between $499 to $599.

immediately and contact Nexgrill to receive a free, 
self-installation retrofit heat shield assembly.
