    Interesting. I can easily sustain 700 on my Napoleon if I needed to.

    400 is barely enough to really grill...

    + for Broil King. Can't remember the model (maybe Signet) but it was the basic 4 burner propane with cast iron grill for about $450 at the time. Bought it 5 years ago and it's still going strong.

    also +1 for not cleaning the cast iron grill to prevent rust... i basically give it a quick once over with a wood scraper while it's still a bit warm to remove large pieces, but never a "deep" cleaning with a wire brush or anything like that. Any heavy grease/oil just burns up anyways the next time i fire it up.

    What sort of problems?
    Very tough to light, burners going out without much wind, uneven heat, doesn't sustain high temp. He got some warranty replacement parts for it and still didn't solve all the problems. Not sure exactly what model it was, it was something in the middle of their range.

    We both have broil king signet grills now and they are just rock solid. Obviously they're on the lower end, but they're great.

    Out of curiosity what is breaking on people’s bbqs?


    I have a Weber that I don't keep covered when not in use, and as such, I've had to replace a few of the electric igniters. Everything else is solid, been using it for 8 years now.

    I just bought this on costco.ca. Napoleon Rogue 425 with side burner

    It seems to be the mid-lower line for Napoleon, seemed like a decent deal with a cover and it being the side burner model.

    It gets plenty hot at the grill surface to grill... but indirect cooking is inefficient because it loses so much heat and becomes a total crapshoot if it's cooler out and there's any wind.

    Prestige 500sqin (it has some weird name like psir500sb)

    My prestige 665 I bought for the lake can also.

    Both NG. Just make sure you have a full 1/2” line out to them.

    Indirect/smoking is obviously a completely different ballgame, no need to sustain high temps for that kind of cooking.

    Broil King Baron in the $650 range or Weber Genesis II 3 burner (or any of its variations) in the $1000 range. When I was looking you could find Genesis II's in the $750-$800 range on sale quite easily.

    Indirect more like roasting a chicken or reverse sear 375° - 400° rather than smoking ~200°... it just seems inefficient to max out 4 burners to maintain 400°F, and lord help you if it's windy.

    The real problem is that calgary is just way too cold.
