They are all called "No.1" after the first charcoal kettle grill that RÖSLE launched and have also been number one with our customers for years.
My smoker has too high temperatures
If a charcoal grill brings too high temperatures, the following steps must be followed.
2) Check the amount of coal, please keep the maximum load.
3) Don't let the inserted coal glow completely, but only a part of it (about 500g of coal). The minion ring method is also suitable for this purpose. For more information, refer to your grill manual.
4) First set the vent at the bottom of the grill to MIN. If this is not enough, close the top vent to 1/3. Never close the top vent completely as this could cause the coals to run out or "fall asleep".
5) At temperatures below 120°C, water should be added to the water tank. In this way, a foreign medium is also heated and the heat distribution reacts more homogeneously.
How do I clean my grill grate after grilling?
There are several ways to clean the grill grate.
My grill does not come up to temperature?
To bring a charcoal grill to the desired temperature, the correct amount of dry charcoal / briquettes must be used. Open the lower supply air regulator completely and get the charcoal glowing with the help of a kindling chimney. When the top layer of charcoal in the kindling chimney is covered with a layer of ash, it can be poured into the grill. Set up the ember bed according to the desired cooking method and place the grill grate on top. Now wait at least 3 minutes until the embers have cooled down from the orange glowing to the red glowing state and only then close the lid. After approx. 10 minutes, you can read the current internal cooking chamber temperature on the thermometer. Now you can regulate the temperature accordingly with the supply air slider at the bottom of the grill. (Control range approx. 30 - 50°C).
Is it possible to add coal to a kettle grill?
Charcoal should never be refilled during the grilling process and when the grill grate is occupied. Refilling the charcoal causes the temperature to drop sharply during grilling and the grilling process is interrupted. In addition, there is a risk of coal dust settling on the grilled food and negatively affecting the taste.
How do I extinguish the embers in my grill?
If the embers are no longer needed, they can be extinguished prematurely. To do this, completely close the supply and exhaust air at the top and bottom. Keep the lid closed. Depending on the amount of charcoal, this can take up to 30 minutes until the charcoal is extinguished. Please note that individual parts of the grill may still be hot afterwards. The cover may only be pulled over the cooled grill after 12 hours.

Do you have to burn in grill grates?
No! RÖSLE only uses enameled cast iron grates and there, baking is not necessary. Only raw steel or cast iron grates that do not have a coating are burned in. However, the grill should be operated at full power for approx. 30 minutes before first use in order to burn off any residues from the manufacturing process. Please also observe the instructions in the operating manual.
What is burn out? How does it work?
To burn out the grill grate, brush it with a cleaning brush while it is hot after grilling to remove the coarse remains of the grilling process. Now let the grill cool down completely and then cover it with a hood. The next time you grill, bring the coals to a glow again and put the grill grate back on immediately after adding the embers. After about 10 minutes, the residue on the grill grate will burn off and can then simply be brushed off with the grill cleaning brush. Finally, rub the hot grill grate with a paper kitchen towel soaked in some sunflower oil and with the help of the grill tongs to remove the burnt remains. Now the grill grate is lightly oiled and ready for the next grilled food.
