The Ninja woodfire outdoor grill (OG701) comes with side handles so you can easily transport this wherever your travel.
Take you assembling the handles is quick and easy let me show you how.
First, you want to make sure that you have the right handle for the correct side of the grill.
Here’s a helpful trick.
The handles actually have an l and r on the bottom, so, you know which handle goes to which side of the grille.
Your handle will arrive with a handy Allen key wrench, tape to it to assemble the handles.
Place your grille on the edge of your table.
Align each handle with the tabs on the base then push up to set each handle in place.
Next use the Allen wrench provided to tighten the two pre-assembled screws on the right handle.
Then turn your grille and do the same thing for the left side.
Now you’re ready to get a smoking grilling airframe and so much more.

Now, that your grille is fully assembled, let’s set it up where you want to get cooking outdoors.
I love a good backyard cookout so I like to use mine on my back patio, especially with a convenient collapsible grill stand.
The Ninja woodfire outdoor grill is powered by electricity so you don’t need charcoal or propane making it easy to just plug in and get grilling in no time.
If you need a little extra cord length just grab yourself an outdoor extension cord.

An integrated smoke box to deliver authentic wood fire flavors to all your favorite foods.
You don’t have to cook with wood fire flavor, but why wouldn’t you?
You want to use your included pellet scoop to fill to the top with pellets and level off before adding directly to the smoke box located on the right side of the grill.
You only need one scoop of pellets for authentic wood fire flavor no matter how much food you’re cooking or how long your cook time is.
And best of all, no refueling is necessary.
Now, that the smoke box is filled, you can add wood fire flavor to any cooking function.
If you’re using woodfire technology, be sure to avoid opening the hood while you’re cooking.
That way, you can keep in as much wood fire flavor as possible.
Whether you want to make a char-grilled rib eye with smoky wood fire flavors, air fry a batch of smoky chicken wings, or even low and slow smoke two racks of ribs the possibilities are endless.
Just be sure to select your cooking function and put your cook time and temp.

The smoke box located on the right-hand side of your Ninja woodfire outdoor grill hood is designed to hold the perfect amount of pellets needed for creating rich fully developed wood fire flavors.
To install, hold the smoke box lid open with one hand and insert the removable smoke box so it sits into place, then fill your included pellet scoop to the top with pellets, and level off to avoid spilling.
While holding the smoke box open, pour the pellets from the scoop into the smoke box until filled to the top, then close the smoke box lid.
Now, you’re ready to get cooking.
Select your cooking function, press the wood fires technology button, set your time and temp, and hit the start-stop to create authentic wood fire flavors fast and easily.

The Ninja Woodfire Outdoor Grill OG701’s Accessories
Every good grill has tools to take your grilling to the next level and the Ninja woodfire outdoor grill is no exception.
I’m going to show you how to heat up your grill game with these Ninja woodfire accessories.
A grill setup wouldn’t be complete without a grill stand.
The Ninja woodfire collapsible stand literally elevates your grilling
Whether you are grilling in your backyard or on the go, there’s a sturdy surface to cook on.
The stand is great because it has side hooks to store your go-to grilling utensils and it’s easy to assemble or fold down for hassle-free storage and transport.
All great grilles need to be protected from the elements and the Ninja woodfire premium grill cover does just that.
The cover is made with an all-weather fabric to fit any condition and it has adjustable drawstrings for a snug fit all around.
This ensures that your grill is protected year-round rain or shine.
Now, you love to grill but sometimes, you like to go beyond grilling and the flat top griddle plate is perfect for making everything from breakfast, pancakes, and bacon to fajitas cheesesteaks or even hibachi-style dinners.
It’s one of my favorite ways to entertain and mix up my grill game on beautiful summer days or times when I’m entertaining outside.
It’s a hassle to run in and out of the house trying to cook multiple things.
I love using the combo crisper basket because I can air fry and grill mains and sides all at the same time.
Whether you are making burgers and fries, or salmon and veggies, the basket lets you do it all in one place so you can spend more time with your friends and family.
How to use the thermometer
Even the most seasoned grill masters know that it can be a challenge to entertain and keep an eye on the grill.
That’s why the Ninja woodfire pro outdoor grill comes with a built-in thermometer.
You can easily sit back relax and enjoy the party knowing that your food will be perfectly cooked.
Let me show you how to use the built-in thermometer.
First, remove the thermometer from the holder and plug it into the jack on the right side of the control panel.
Then insert the thermometer horizontally into the thickest part of your mead.
Be sure that you don’t insert your thermometer vertically or at an angle because that can affect the readout.
Also, if your meat has a bone in it like, make sure that you don’t hit the bone and try to avoid any of the gristle or fat.
Add the food with the thermometer inserted and close the hood over the cord to begin cooking.
When you close the lid it’s okay to close it on the wire.
Just make sure that you don’t close it on the grip because that could cause your thermometer to shift around in the meat.
Then select your cooking function, your cooking temperature, your protein type, and your desired level of doneness.
You can just hit preset or manual settings to display all the different protein and doneness settings available.
The progress bar on the display screen will track the food’s doneness throughout cooking, so, you don’t have to when the cooking’s almost complete.
The grill will beep and say done which means you can remove your food from the grill.
When you’re cooking smaller pieces of meat like chicken breasts or pork chops on your Ninja woodfire pro outdoor grill, once you’re done cooking, leave that thermometer in.
It’s going to account for some carryover time of about three to five minutes to deliver perfect deadness.
On the other hand, if you’re cooking something larger like a pork shoulder, take it off the grill, remove the thermometer and let it rest for about 45 minutes that’s going to ensure maximum juiciness.
With the built-in thermometer, the Ninja woodfire pro outdoor grill makes it easy to grill, smoke, and air-fry.
You name it that way you can enjoy more of your backyard barbecue.
How to clean the Ninja Woodfire Outdoor Grill
With the Ninja wood fire outdoor grill, cleanup is a breeze so you never have to stress about the post-cookout mess.
The grill grate and crisper basket are non-stick coated and can be easily cleaned after every use.
To get started, unplug your grill and let all of your accessories cool down.
To help things cool down faster, lift your grill hood and keep it open after you remove your food.
Once everything is cooled and the pellets are completely burned out, remove the smoke box and pour out all pellets and ash.
We recommend doing this after each use to ensure your food always has the best possible wood fire flavors.
If a deeper clean is desired for the smoke box, feel free to use a wire brush to remove the build-up but never use a liquid cleaning solution as this can cause your smoke box to rust.
Hand washes the grease tray once the grease has cooled and been discarded.
Your pellet scoop can go directly into the dishwasher.
Because the grill’s non-stick parts are easily removable, you can bring them inside with the rest of your dishes and hand wash them with warm soapy water in your sink.
If there’s any grease build-up or stuck-on char on your grill accessories, give them a pre-soak in hot soapy water before gently wiping them clean.
Never use abrasive tools or cleaners to ensure your grill stays in the best condition.
Possible to clean the inner hood of your grill, wipe it down with a damp cloth after each use to deodorize the grill and remove any grease.
If your grill comes with a thermometer, simply wash it in warm soapy water and let it dry.
Don’t put it in the dishwasher.
Once your grill is fully cleaned you’ll be ready to get back to master grilling barbecue smoking and outdoor air frying in no time
