1: Does the Skottle come pre seasoned? Yes, we pre season each Skottle before we ship them. They are ready to cook on!
2: Is the 10,000 BTU burner strong enough?
Yes, the biggest mistake most people make with the burner is turn it up too high during cooking. Warm up the pan on high and lower to medium flame to low flame for cooking.
3: How is the Skottle Grill assembled?

4: Is My Skottle broken? The seasoning burned off, what do I do?
No, the Skottle is not broken! Unless you jump on the Skottle from a picnic table, it is pretty much indestructible!
The picture shows a Skottle in which the burner was set too high. Lower the flame when cooking and add a bit of moisture to the pan such as water, oil, wine, beer etc.
To re-season the bald spot: Rub a light coat of cooking oil on the pan with a paper towel and turn on the burner until the oil starts to smoke and evaporate. Let the pan cool and repeat the process one or two times. The pan will be seasoned just fine.
The more the Skottle is used the more non-stick it will become.

5: How do I clean the Skottle? I burned something on the bottom and I can’t wipe it out.
Pour enough water into the pan to cover the burned on crud. Turn on the burner until the water is hot and let it sit for ten minutes. Use a spatula and scrape the crud off the pan. Drain the pan and reheat until the pan is hot. Throw water into the pan and it will flash steam any remaining crud off the pan. With a paper towel apply a light coat of cooking oil to the pan and you are ready for the next meal.

6: What can I cook in the Skottle?
Anything you would cook in a skillet.
7: Do you have a Skottle Cook Book?
Not yet, working on one soon! Please send in any Skottle recipes with pictures and be part of the cook book!
8: Do I need to buy the wind shield?
Only if you camp in very windy conditions.
9: How do I use the wind shield?
Remove the burner from the Skottle burner cage, insert the wind shield into the burner cage and reinsert the burner.
Most important when using the wind shield is to keep the open end of the shield pointing into the wind.
10: What are the little holes at the end of the legs for?
The holes were used during the powder coat process of manufacture. Do not worry about the holes. You do not need to line them up with the eye bolts.
