Great grill steve, I own 2 napol
eons myself(and  Broil King) terrific and best thing is they are built in North America(actually just north of me in Barrie Ontario) great quality compared to the offshore stuff.

grassburner says:

I likey-likey.   Well thought out grill!

Hellfax says:

I love it! Can’t wait to see you cook with it. Does it have a lighting port for an electric starter? I’m guessing the door in the front is for this use.

I own 2 basic BBQ pro smokers.. I like them, the grates season so well its gonna be hard not to still use it, but this grill is what I’m looking for because of the ability to lower the coals so easily.. I mainly only do pork butts and chuck roast so this grill would be perfect for indirect smoking..


Looks like a very well built grill Steve. Can’t wait to see you cooking on that beast!!!

Smoky Ribs BBQ & Southern Cuisine says:

Nice review Steve, and very nice charcoal grill from Napoleon.

Chippy Tucker says:

Well isn’t that a load of crap… porcelain coated cast iron, that’s just what stops me from buying a damn BBQ…..WTF is wrong with plain Jane GOOD OLD SIMPLE CAST IRON FFS. I want to put some oil on it, treat it, and use a damn metal brush to clean my damn grill, NOT plastic. Can’t use a good metal scrubber on that girly porcelain crap.

George Santos says:

Great review. No doubt is an excellent grill. I was thinking on how to reload more charcoal but with the two zone fire you can always keep one of the grates off to keep adding charcoal. The only drawback I see is the price. The competition on this last item is superior meaning quality-price ratio is better. Thanks.

TosTinMan EasyCooking says:

Pretty nice! I’m curious to see how that rotisserie works.

Norbert Meyer says:

Hi Steve, thanks for that review on this – as it seems – awesome grill! I am so curious for some cooks on this Napoleon Pro605.  Did you not post any or did I just not find them? I´d really like to know how this grill behaves when you want to do low and slow jobs like ribs or pulled pork. Have you any Information for me?

Ryan TT says:

Looks amazing, can’t wait to see it inaction. With charcoal basket control and airflow you should be able to do a reverse sear on your steaks.

Bad Beast Barbecue says:

Great looking grill Steve. I would have never guessed it was a charcoal grill. All the features of a gas/infrared grill with the use of charcoal, cool combination.

BigPolarJer BBQ says:

Awesome Grill Review!

Lee Setzer says:

Nice grill Steve and I look forward to some cooks! Big-time name grill.

Brian Chrisman says:

That looks sick, but I still love my kamado.

ega0117 says:

Everything was going good until you showed the ash/grease catcher. If you took that ash catcher out the remaining ash can fall into the storage area. Just thinking about it, who knows what if the coals that felling into the storage bin is still hot…. guess what fire in the bin where you stored the bag full of charcoal and lighting fluid

Cris Workizer says:

Steve, nice review. that grill has a lot of good features and looks very well built. the door in front of the bbq with the pull handle has to be for adding charcoal can it be added at any grate height ?? cant wait for you to cook on it especially on the rotisserie.awesome job brother.

White Thunder BBQ says:

Great review Steve! Can’t wait to see this in action. Is it airtight? Or do you think any charcoal will just burn off?

MrPanthers23 says:

what is your go to smoker now? I remember when you started on the WSM. Why is said smoker your go to smoker? if it’s not the WSM, what makes the other smokers better? Just curious if it’s worth it for me to get another smoker other than my 18.5 wsm. maybe this could be a video? you going over all the smokers you’ve used so far? love your stuff man. keep it up. Go gators. I used to live of 13th st in the NW part, back when there was still a blockbuster at the corner.

The Bald Chef says:

Steve new sub nice looking grill!

cdarrman01 says:

Steve you have an arsenal of grills my friend, how many do you have?

Rochford Rob says:

I have owned one of these over here in the UK for 3 years now. A superb piece of kit. You can cook anything on it given the amount of control you have over the heat. Fill one bay with charcoal and then cook by radiant heat the other end or with the lid down. The rotisserie is superb too – and huge – almost a metre long – enough for a suckling pig, several chickens or beef joints.
Only one problem – the thermometer has given up the ghost so I buy a cheap s/steel oven one and leave it inside on one of the shelves.

Peter van Amstel says:

awesome grill ! Nice review

Baby Back Maniac says:

This is cool. Reminds me of Hasty Bake. Looks like it would last forever.

maciekthepole says:

Lovely.. .but expensive.

Cris Workizer says:

Steve, really hope I didnt come across as an ass, really just wanted to no if coals could be added at any grate level…not calling you out brother,.like what you do..keep up the awesome bbq .sincerly ,Cris
