Back to my old Coleman - it's 304, I never clean it, and it has been open to the elements for ages with no cover … And doesn't have a spot of rust on it. I noticed a free 3 year old Prestige in a craigslist ad in Massachusetts last week because the thing was falling/rusting apart.

We purchased this Grill in 2014 and have used it about 500 times since and after 3 Chicago winters this grill works as good as the day we bought it, we got the cover for it but there have been some times where it sat uncovered with snow and ice on it, The grill fires up every time and the igniters still work just fine.

That concludes our look at some of the best options in full-sized gas grills currently available for the home shopper.

Napoleon Natural Gas Grills

The Napoleon Built-In Prestige PRO 500 grill head provides unparalleled performance and durability, but doesn't skimp on the style. You plug in the Rotisserie (sp?) and of course the power for the lights and rear + side infrared burnesr into the power supply - but then the power supply has a socket for the source of the power (which you connect a cable that goes to the wall outlet.) I've tried many extension cords but nothing really fits (the socket is a standard NEMA 5-15P - Male) - so you need to plug in a cord that has 5-15R (female) end.

The rotisserie is another highlight, as the motor and burner perform beautifully when grilling whole chickens, and the rest of the grill is engaged with other duties. Dyna 5-Burner Propane's side burner is an alternative barbequing space for snacks and light meals. In addition to the four main burners, the Napoleon P500RSIBNSS has a rear and side burner. The stainless steel body components have a lifetime warranty (the nearest competitor offers 25 years) and the stainless steel tube burners have a 10-year warranty, plus an additional five in which the parts can be purchased for half price. Typically the larger the grill the more BTU's are needed to maximize the grills efficiency. If you don't have a lot of deck space, the Prestige and its compact size are perfect.

With a rotary spark ignition system and a one-temperature setting it delivers 20,000 BTUs to the 421-square-inch cooking surface for a heat flux of 48 - perfect for the built in smoking tray and slow cooking/steaming feature. I use steel wool on the tubes and vim on the plastic shelf to the left and scrub the stainless steel side burner (scratched due to me not going with the grain at times - I can take responsibility for my mistakes - with a scrubbie). The 16-gauge 304 stainless steel burners are comparable with the best grills on the market, including grills that cost considerably more than this one.

Review Napoleon P500RSIBNSS Prestige Natural Gas Grill

Napoleon's Prestige PRO Series Gas Grills are known for their beauty and performance. The Prestige 500 has 4 main burners, 1 infrared rear burner, and 1 infrared side burner all constructed of durable stainless steel, giving multiple cooking zones. I compare the 420 and 470 to this grill and you just got more for your buck with the Napoleon while giving up nothing. It has four stainless steel burners connected to a Snap-Jet individual burner ignition system and front-mounted controls. I shopped this grill with the Webber 470 and found the Napoleon to be much more sturdy, with a heavier feel than the Webber. One-temperature setting” means there are no variable temperatures - the grill is either on or off. I thought I was getting good product from a reputable company, boy was I was my first and last” Napoleon grill, never again.

Though I will say that our Weber rep is far more active with us than the Napoleon rep, though they are both exceptional men and are incredibly helpful when we are dealing with customers/issues of our own. My son-in-law a complicated charcoal grill a couple of years ago and does all the work so I don't bother dragging out my little BBQ. The stainless steel body and chrome details shrug off dirt and corrosion, wiping down easily.

My brother-in-law has a Napoleon (2 years old) that he loves and his is a P500 Prestige series. All stainless steel construction with chrome accents means that the PRO825RSBIPSS is not only big but it's beautiful too. I also get to sear my steak and chicken in the right amount of heat, thanks to Napoleon's ceramic side burner. I don't even have to eat out in restaurants when I get the cravings to do so, after I purchased my own Napoleon gas grill. Infrared burners heat up through an infrared element that then heats a cooking grate which then cooks the food. Despite some minor manufacturing issues (broken caster, grill grate that didn't sit flush) that were promptly resolved.

I've also cooked on my parents 2 year old Broil King (Signet) and it appears well built and fires up nicely but I found that it did an average to a below average job when it came to flare-ups so you had to be careful when cooking with fattier meats. Never replaced any parts except for the igniter module and wires… that's it. Solid cast iron grates still in good shape, no rust on the unit (stainless steel). The infrared side burner is great for grilling hamburgers, brats and steaks, and when used as a burner heats food quickly!

I might have fit another rib rack on the main grill but that might be pushing it. I was able to fit an 18lb turkey, stuffing, and 8 cobs of corn at the same time. Most grills come with one of two types of burner configurations either conventional or infrared. I finally decided that the rain soaked original cover was retaining more moisture than if I just left grill uncovered - so now is uncovered. The P500RSIB-1 has 4 main burners, 1 infrared rear burner and 1 infrared side burner.

From Broil King we have the Sovereign 70, a robust and handsome grill that includes a premium rotisserie burner and kit that includes a counter-balanced fork and electric motor. Your Napoleon® grill is designed to excel, offering a cooking experience as gratifying as the wonderful meals you'll create with it. This Weber grill comes with an excellent, no-hassle customer service guarantee from the manufacturer. From the date your gas grill is purchased for use, BROILMASTER gas grills will make available, at our factory, a free replacement for any defective part covered by the warranty.

The Dyna-Glo DGA550SSP-D Liquid Propane Gas Grill is an excellent choice for the entire BBQ experience and with 764-square inches of cooking area, there's enough space to grill for your family, friends and neighbors. To calculate heat flux, divide the BTUs by the area in square inches for the primary cooking surface (but don't include side burners and warming areas). This time we had cold ”summer” food - much of which bought from Udi's Goodies, a local heaven on earth shop - and hot food from the Aga. Grilling has always appeared to me as a manly activity and I never put much thought into cooking on the grill.

At the time of this writing, the Char-Broil Classic is one of the most popular gas grills with online shoppers - they give it high grades for solid construction, quick heating, and great value for the price. Stainless steel and cast iron also come with porcelain coatings, which make cleaning easier, and there's no need to season enameled cast iron grates. So it will better to get a hybrid grill where you have both burners to allow you to control the grill to a lower temperature using the conventional burner. Being the grilling master you are, you'll love how the Prestige P500 Gas Grill has staggered sear plates made from premium stainless steel as well. But Napoleon comes up with just enough distinctive ideas to make them a viable contender.

Aside from the emitter plates, infrared barbecues use pretty much the same technology and fuel as gas BBQs, and many of today's models will offer a combination of infrared and standard burners. This doesn't take into account air leakage from the fire box, how close the burners are to the grate, and so on - but it does give a better idea of how well-seared those delicious T-bones are going to get. Otherwise you'll be arguing with customer service and rebuilding your grill every 3 months. The materials they source to make the gas grills from is of the highest quality to ensure longevity from the finished product.

Inside, porcelain-enameled cast iron or stainless steel grates with heavy gauge wires retain heat well. The kind of grill you describe here sounds like something that we could cook a small meal on and not feel guilty about wasting charcoal. The reason is the hose and fitting that run from the grill to the connection in your house. They are not as good as they used to be. I know that I am making strong comes here about something that is not that important in your lifes, such as grill. I would not trust plastic castors to last very long if you truck your grill around a lot.

Giesen said Porky's propane versus natural gas sales are 50-50, with purchasers of larger barbecues more apt to lean toward investing in a $300 to $400 natural gas outlet addition. In truth, the number of BTUs tells us the quantity of fuel the BBQ can consume to heat the grate area in an hour - and the larger the grill, the greater amount of fuel will be needed to heat the area. Piezo electric ignition - in which a spark is generated by friction, and an electrode lets the spark jump to the gas. I can't comment on the Napoleon P500RSIB-SS specifically, but I have a Plain Jane P500 that I bought last September.
