What is the barbecue plate made from?

The BBQ plate is made from mild steel and is available in 3 thicknesses: 5mm for everyday, backyard use, 10mm for hire and catering purposes, 20mm for Tepinyaki cooking. Heatlie Barbecues are designed to be used for commercial cooking, we recommend the 10mm for catering purposes as this will not warp when heated for long periods of time. The thickness of the plate conducts and holds the heat better than the thinner plate and results in no warping.

Do I need to season the plate?

Seasoning the plate will stop food from sticking and give you a better cooking surface. See our guide to seasoning your BBQ plate here

Why has my hotplate discoloured?

This is a normal occurrence with stainless-steel hotplates after a period of time and should be no cause for concern as it will provide a better cooking surface. To maintain the colouring stainless steel hotplate, we recommend to thoroughly clean the hotplate with non-caustic cleaning products after each use.

My BBQ won’t light!

Download our Troubleshooting Checklist before phoning our Customer Service Hotline.

How do I light my BBQ if the piezo ignition does not work?

Light the front burner using 40mm match through the porthole, located on the right-hand side of the BBQ front panel.

How do I fix my Piezo ignitor?

Look under the BBQ at the leads to the ignitor – are they attached? If not, you can reattach the leads to the igniter by placing your hand up underneath the BBQ. If the lead is still loose, pinch the ends together with a pair of pliers. If they are attached and the ignitor is faulty, a Piezo kit can be ordered from the Spare Parts section of our online store.

How to Care for your Plate



Cooking Guide

Cooking Instructions

Turn the Barbecue on high for 3 minutes to pre-heat the hotplate.

As a guide:

  • For a 20mm thick, medium cooked steak, cook for 3-4 miutes each side.
  • For a medium-rare steak, cook for 2 minutes each side.
  • For gourmet sausages (25mm thick) cook for approximately 10 minutes, turning every couple of minutes.


Seasoning the Plate
As the Heatlie Barbecue hotplate is made from mild steel, it is recommended that the steel hotplate be ” seasoned” to reduce the likelihood of food sticking to the hotplate. This is achieved by following these simple steps:

  1. Wash hotplate using warm soapy water.
  2. Rinse and dry hotplate.
  3. Turn on barbecue and apply a layer of vegetable or cooking oil.
  4. Turn off barbecue.
  5. Wipe off layer of oil.
  6. After cooking, scrape food particles off hotplate and apply a layer of cooking oil before storage. After continual use you will notice a brown film developing over the hotplate. This seasoning process will reduce the likelihood of food sticking to the hotplate.


Box Contents

Leg Kit Box containing:

  • 2 wheels
  • 1 leg with bottle bracket
  • 2 axle assemblies (each including 1 axle, 2×1″ washers, 1x1 washer, 1x1 nyalock nut)
  • 1 leg without wheels

BBQ Assembly Instructions

It is important that the leg/wheel kit is assembled first.

Leg/Wheel Kit Assembly

Remove contents of Leg Kit Box. To secure wheels on wheel leg kit:

  1. Remove all washers and nut from the stub axle
  2. Pass axles through the hole at the bottom of the wheel leg so that the axle thread is protruding from the outer side of the leg.
  3. Place one of the 1″washers on the axle
  4. Place the wheel on the axle
  5. Place the other ½” washer on the axle
  6. Place the other large washer on the axle
  7. Screw the nyalock nut with the nylon on the external side
  8. Tighten nut to required tension using a spanner
  9. Repeat process for other wheels

Barbecue Assembly

Note: If Warming Drawer is being used, this needs to be fitted now. Please
refer to “Assembly of Heatlie Accessories – Warming Drawer” before commencing.

  1. Twist out thumbscrews on the corner of cook-top for enough so as not to interfere with the insertion of the legs.
  2. The legs with Gas Bottle Bracket belong at the end where the gas controls are located.
  3. You will need to either:
      1. Place the BBQ, plate side down, on the ground, then install legs as follows then with one person either end of the BBQ, turn up the right way and rest on legs
      2. OR Have 2 people holding the BBQ, one person to hold the handle on one end and the other to hold the control panel on the other end, lift the BBQ above the height of the legs and have a 3 rd person insert the legs.
  4. Install legs by pushing them up into the corner stubs of the barbecue.
  5. Ensure legs penetrate past the thumbscrew level and then tighten the thumbscrews.
  6. Legs can be slightly raised using thumbscrews to achieve slight fall on cook-top for fat drainage.

Once final levelling is achieved keep thumbscrews tightened – this keeps unit rigid and prevents legs dropping when moving unit.

Gas Bottle and Line Fittings

  1. Gas Bottle: Hang gas bottle on the brackets provided. The handle at the top of the bottle sits over the bent brackets.
  2. Regulator: Connect the regulator to the bottle, and the flexible hose to the Barbecue nozzle fitting at the base of burner controls (3 BSP fitting).
    Note: this is a low-pressure appliance and a pressure regulator must be used.
    You cannot connect this LPG barbecue directly to a natural gas supply.
    (The Heatlie BBQ can be easily converted for use with Natural Gas.)
  3. Gas Line Fittings: Use a spanner to tighten the flexible hose to the barbecue (right-hand thread). Do not overtighten. Tighten gas bottle connection with fingers (left-hand thread). Keep gas line away from potential hot surfaces.
  4. Leak Test: With the gas line connected to the controller unit – turn gas on at bottle and check for leaks. Use soapy water – brush over joints on gas bottle and connection at the controller unit and watch for bubbles.
