When taking delivery of your barbecue, be sure to enlist the help of a friend! Our barbecues are very heavy and can weigh up to 100kg. It will take two or three people to safely move the barbecue to its desired location.
When assembling your Maturi barbecue, make sure to fully read and follow the included instructions within the box.These instructions supplement those and do not explain the construction process fully. If you misplace the enclosed instructions, you can find a PDF copy of them here. [Link to PDF instructions page]
Included with your barbecue are all the tools you’ll need to assemble your barbecue - apart from 2-3 pairs of hands! These tools include a screwdriver, allen key and spanners (as below).
Carefully remove all parts of the barbecue from its packaging within each layer and check against the ‘Parts List’ within the printed instructions. Please note that some of the parts might already be part assembled. There may also be loose screws within each layer - please be mindful of this and keep an eye out for these!
The smaller items are included within the smaller upper box (such as Weather Cover, Ash Remover, Grill Grip, Legs and Wheels, Tools, Screws and Heat Deflector*) *21”-26” models only.
Once checked, assemble your barbecue as per the instructions included.
We recommend you keep the protective covers on the legs (Part 1, as below), as not to damage the barbecue during construction.
We advise that you place the barbecue and stand in its final spot before adding in the inner ceramic housing and grill to make it easier to move.
The build time should take approximately 60 minutes.
Using the Barbecue
Please take note of the warnings within the instructions and adhere to these to ensure safe use of your barbecue.
Before using the barbecue to cook food, ensure you ‘season’ it following the below instructions:
