I power-wash the BBQ approximately 3 to 4 times a year and generally cook meats on high heat with middle burner off (indirect).

In our tests, this was one of the fastest grills to heat up, reaching 500 degrees Fahrenheit in about three and a half minutes.

I actually saw a Ted Reader version of the Napoleon unit signed up in Canadian Tire as made in Canada..which it is not.

Napoleon Grills

Napoleon grills are some of best grills on the market today '” and it's not without reason. 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.

But that's just it — they have to stand behind the product if they wear the Weber or Napoleon name anywhere on their person. Napoleon says that's not normal and will replace it, but I'll see if it clears up this summer.

On the LEX 605 and 730 the sizzle zone” is located under the cooking grates inside the grill, and they have a conventional open flame side burner for even more versatility.

VERDICT / Combining a rotisserie burner with rear and side infrared burners, the Napoleon Mirage creates a versatile, multipurpose cooking space - one of the best you can find. There are three factors to consider when using infrared — cooking time, the adjustable height of the grill, and the level of gas used on the adjustable controller. Napoleon was not interested in addressing my problems as they likely did not want to admit the grille was made in China.
