Just my 2 cent here,

It's a good deal if you were hesitant buying Weber performer (not delux) due to price.
The Weber equivalent sells for $399 at HD at regular price. You can save $100 by buying this at Costco. But I don't think it's much of a deal considering Weber vs Napoleon. And I think HD jacked up their price not too long ago. They probably go on sale and you can get Weber for not so much and you get parts. aftermarket parts easily for weber products.

Personally I bought used Performer Delux for $180 on Marketplace, can't force anyone to buy used items here, but you get the hell outta deal like gas ignition and bigger table. I am happy with it :)

Curious on those who've had issues with Napoleon products before. On what model was it?

Would you recommend this over the 22" Weber Premium kettle? Was planning to get that one but this is $50 for a nice little stand and presumably some better features?

I hear Napoleon makes almost same quality as Weber, so if you were planning on getting premium Kettle at full price, you can get this. The upside for getting this is stability, and table. Other things are the same like porcelain grill and size of the grill.

Negative. The base had a defect. They finally realized that was the case and offered the part for 50% off.

Kettles are the gold standard for this price, you can pick a sale or clearance kettle and build your table for it.

That's the route I went.

Original Kettle - $75
Ash catcher - $40 (must have for a wood tablel
Hinged grate - $25
Lumber - $100-$150

All in for around $200-$300, depending on what you get the kettle for.

That said, If you want to just go for a charcoal with side table and not build. This is a warm deal for sure.

Nice yard! Do you grill on your deck? Do you find any issues with ash ruining it?

Weber across the board jacked their prices around $30 (master touch went from 319 to 349) would go Weber over this any day just for the aftermarket support.

Be careful with the wooden table support for kettles (and kamados). Lots of stories/pictures of folks who had implicit trust in their wood table to only have it catch fire and cause significant damage. Check out the Kamadoguru forums for further info. I had fully intended on making a table for one of my kamados, but after reading there, I was persuaded that it's not a great idea.

Thanks, the brick house is my current home. The other picture is the day I build it at the old townhouse.

Up on the deck by the door I have a 4 burner propane and a 36" Blackstone.

Kettle still get lots of use, as there are certain thing we only do on coals. Of the 3, the propane gets used the least, but it is nice to be there when tight for time and you need it.

The ash catcher works awesome. Very little ash, if any gets anywhere. Just keep it clean.

Ya, it's low risk imo, especially with the ash catcher, but you are right there is risk. That is why it is down on the stone patio.

I was a BBQ salesperson at home depot for years, you'll hear all the same complaints about Weber vs. Napoleon, these are giant corporations sometimes you get good products, sometimes you get good service, sometimes not. Flip a coin and you'll get someone saying the same thing as you, except favouring napoleon instead of weber - I've heard plenty of ppl beefing about Weber for many reasons.

Easier to clean than a gas/propane grill. Just scrape and the stuff falls to the bottom vents and into the green bin they go. I clean mine after every cook and before. Mainly just to scrub the grill portion. I do a full clean out every month. Sooner if I do a lot of cooking. During the warmer months I would have to clean out the grill every 2 weeks. I was grilling 5 times a week. Face With Tears Of Joy

I still bbq in cold weather. Mind you have a covered area to work in so that helps too.

Some concern about a wooden structure to support a BBQ along with heat effect on the siding...
