Super Cooker Preparation If you are planning to utilize the entire cooking surface, approximately 1 large bag of charcoal will be required for a good coal bed. Make sure coals are good and hot before starting (approximately 45 minutes to one hour). The amount of coals that will be required varies according to the amount of meat and the number of times the cooker is opened. Cooking times will be less than on an open grill. Extra coals may be added by raising the cooking rack. Raise the cooking rack if the cooking temperature is too high.
Super Cooker Cleaning Cooker must be cleaned after use. Metal grate should be cleaned with a stiff wire brush. Hot coals must be extinguished before placing them in designated containers.
