step 1: assembling your spark
The video below will walk you through your Spark grill assembly, step by step. The manual can also be downloaded via the button below, and can be found within the Spark app. We've also included a printed version inside the box that your grill arrived in.
Before you begin, follow these tips for a smooth assembly experience:
✓ MOST IMPORTANT: Make it fun! Grab a drink, put on a playlist, and get pumped up to take your Spark for a spin.
✓ Grab a buddy: Your Spark is quality-crafted with steel and iron which makes the kettle heavy (60 lbs), so you may want an extra hand for the lifting portion of the assembly.
✓ Find setup space: We recommend finding a big flat space (about 10’x10’) to lay out all the parts before you begin assembling.
✓ Find Spark space: You’ll need to plug your Spark in to use it, so make sure you find a safe spot near an outlet or have an extension cord handy. Safety first! Keep your Spark away from wood and other flammable materials.
✓ Reserve some time: We find it takes 30-45 minutes to set up the Spark and about 45 minutes to season the cast iron grates.
If you have any questions or issues during assembly, reach out to the support team for assistance.
step 2: pairing your grill
Once Assembly is complete, it is time to pair your Spark to the Spark app.
1. Download the app by clicking below, and create an account. Make sure your phone's bluetooth is on and that your grill is plugged in.
2. The app should detect your grill within a few seconds - from there, tap "connect" and follow the steps to set up your grill connection.
3. You may be prompted to update your firmware, which will only take 1-2 minutes. We’re always adding new features and improving your grill’s performance, so for the best experience, make sure to tap "update" whenever prompted.

Step 3: seasoning the grates
For the best cooking experience, we recommend seasoning your grates before starting your first Spark session. However, your grill is ready to use right out of the box, so once your grill is assembled you can go ahead and get grilling if you'd like!
How easy was that? Your new Spark grill is now ready to use. For tips and tricks on your first cook and how to use your Spark to its potential, we recommend watching the below video.
