WARNING: FIRE HAZARD, BURN HAZARD! FLAMES, SPARKS AND LIT EMBERS CAN EXIT ANY OPENING ON THE PIT CAUSING FIRE! Keep the pit located a safe distance away from flammable objects including buildings, walls, solvents, cars, fuel, wood piles, and furniture, and use caution when opening the pit. An ember that has fallen or is ejected from the pit can be blown into a garage or other structure, debris field, woods, or grass field and can cause fire. Have a fire extinguisher and water supply available near the pit.

WARNING: FIRE HAZARD: If the pit is used on a combustible surface such as a wooden deck, place the pit on a non-flammable pad intended for this purpose.

WARNING: EXPLOSION HAZARD: PIT FIRES CAN OCCUR WHEN LIQUIDS ARE SPILLED OR WHEN SURFACES INSIDE THE PIT REACH THE IGNITION TEMPERATURES OF FATS! Never pour or throw water directly onto a fat fire. Reduce the temperature by cooling the fire in the firebox with a water spray. Close the cooking chamber door while the firebox is steaming to smother the fire. Repeat this procedure as necessary until the pit is under control.

WARNING: FIRE HAZARD: Pit fires can be largely avoided if the pit is kept clean and free from fat buildup during or between cooks. Change drip trays during a cook to keep flammable fats to a minimum. Cook at temperatures low enough to avoid ignition.


WARNING: THERE ARE HOT SURFACES ON ALL PARTS OF THE PIT BEFORE, DURING AND AFTER COOKING! Wear protective clothing when tending the pit, dumping a firebox into a proper receptacle, attempting to extinguish a fire, or mounting any part of your Guru control system. Be ready to call your local fire company in the case of an emergency.

NOTE: Pit fires can be largely avoided if the cooker is kept clean and free from fat buildup during or between cooks. Changing drip trays during a cook cycle will help keep flammable fats in the cooker to a minimum. You are dealing with an open fire when you are cooking on charcoal and wood.

WARNING: ELECTRICAL SHOCK HAZARD, HIGH VOLTAGE! The power supply for this product is plugged into a 120 or 240 VAC Mains. This voltage can cause injury or death. Keep the power supply away from water and off the ground. Never touch the power supply if it gets wet. Do not use the power supply if visibly damaged.

WARNING: FIRE HAZARD, BURN HAZARD: Even quality electronics can fail CAUSING THE FAN TO RUN CONSTANTLY, RESULTING IN EXCESSIVE TEMPERATURES! Power draft fans can get the pit temperature higher than natural draft. Use caution in opening the pit and determining fan placement. Inspect the probe and fan wires for damage which can cause the fan to run constantly.

WARNING: FIRE HAZARD: Even quality electronics can fail and cause the temperature to read incorrectly. Use a redundant dial thermometer as a backup temperature sensor to verify the control’s reading of the pit temperature.

CAUTION: There are no user serviceable parts inside the control unit. Opening or making unauthorized modifications may cause equipment failure, creating a hazardous condition.

CAUTION: The appliance is not to be used by children or persons with reduces physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have been given supervision or instruction.
