PIT Demo Mode

This article covers information on Demo Mode for our Gen 1 PIT grills: Pro 575 & 780, Ironwood 650 & 885, Timberline 850 & 1300, Century 885, and Silverton 620 & 810.

For information on Demo Mode in the new Timberline models, see New Timberline Demo Mode.

What Is Demo Mode?

Demo Mode is typically used by retailers who wish to show how the grill works without actually starting a fire in the firepot. Demo Mode disables the hotrod while letting all the other parts function as intended.

How to Enable or Disable Demo Mode

To enable or disable, go to Menu > Settings > Demo Mode > Select On or Off.

Stuck on Demo Mode

If turning Demo Mode off via the previously outlined instructions does not work, please power cycle the grill by following the steps below:

  1. Turn the main power switch off.
  2. Unplug the grill.
  3. Turn grill power switch to on.
  4. Wait 10 seconds.
  5. Turn grill power switch to off.
  6. Plug in the grill.
  7. Turn on the power switch--you should be out of Demo Mode at this point.
