Thank you for sharing this - looking forward to receiving it.

Any idea where to find the cover for cheaper than what Bestbuy has it for (about 100 bux after shipping).

As the weather is getting nicer (although it's always nice in Victoria!) Costco started stocking grill covers again, if you don't mind it not having the Napoleon brand. I've heard (don't remember where) that the Napoleon grill covers aren't that great, anyway.

Homesense also sometimes stocks napoleon overstock products, not sure if the ones near you will have the covers.

I couldn't resist any longer and bought one. There are now 6 remaining in Alberta.

I'm interested in upgrading to the stainless steel grills. Where can I buy them?
I would just run the cast iron ones, once seasoned the work amazing and have better heat retention, also can be flipped to provide more of less surface area. So Triangular in side profile. one side good for steak, one side good for chicken sorta thing. Just need to keep them seasoned and they out perform the stainless grills! But to each their own of course!

Yeah, you're right. I should spend some time using the included grates before deciding whether to go with the stainless steel ones. No reason to spend more money if I don't have to.

It's $20 @costco in stores. Very durable, almost gripping like rubber plastic. I think it'll last a long time. Definitely rain proof as I've used it over the rainy weekend.

+1 Costco cover for 20$ is amazing quality for the price

If anyone is looking for a new set of porcelain coated grills for the P308 I have a new set here still in the package. $50 they are yours.

Anyone with the 308 find the whole centre (where there are no burners, just the extra holes in flavorizer bars) is a whole lot colder than the rest? Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but on low & high, the areas under the burner are much/much hotter. I'm used to hot spots, but this one seems quite huge.

Any way to avoid delivery charge?
Not 100%, but if you're willing to pick up from their depot it might save you the delivery charge. That is, if the depot is close to you.

So I bought this bbq last sale and I still haven't assembled it. Learned yesterday that I can't get a gas line installed at my place, so now to convert to propane. Has anybody bought the modification kit from Napoleon? Additionally, if anybody is using propane, are you adding lavarocks or anything like that, or just keeping the flame as is?

It is cooler for sure in the centre, I just cook with that in mind, thin parts of the salmon or chicken breasts get pointed towards the middle. Burgers I rotate around the grill as they cook
ideally three straight tubes would have been better for even distribution, but this grill consistently gives great results for me.
