It was my old gas grill that did that to the siding. It exhausted out the back and right up the siding.

Many people have kettles in custom wood tables without issues, so it is pretty low risk. I suspect anyone who had a fire, wasn't cleaning it well enough.

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.
May I know where you got the ash catcher from? And if possible the part number?

Go Weber guys or any other brand.

This is 100% not the the case. Great service on my bbq and fireplace. Never had an issue, years after, with replacement free parts.

What do mean "this is 100% not the case?" I'm not making this up. Anyway, to each their own. Moving on. I wish everyone the best of luck and savoury food with this BBQ.

As someone who has had both a Napoleon and a Weber charcoal grill, they are not the same quality. Weber is vastly superior. The service with Weber was much better but that doesn't matter much when you're buying from Costco. Any issues and you can just take it back.

despite costco's great return policy. i'm one of the people who would try to avoid costco's return line as much as possible. Everytime I have to return something I have to block out at least a couple of hours of my day. Part of me think this is costco's strategy to curb people from returning items, by purposely making you wait at least an hour to return anything.

Lol, thanks. I do love that bbq.

That's the weekend we moved in, in June. The lady moving out let the weeds get out of control. Took a lot of the summer to get them decent, but I may re-sand the stones this coming summer.

it just depends on your luck as well as time of day. i've had times where i literally walk in and either i'm going straight to the return desk or i'm next or 2nd. sometimes, i have to wait 15 to 30 mins. had never waited for hours. in all honesty, it's mostly people returning clotheS or are complaining about something that takes forever for the return. whenever i'm the one who's doing a return, i'm always done within 5 mins tops or 10 if the manager was away.

Ditto man. Sent a picture to Napoleon of I aiming a laser thermometer at the middle of the lid handle. 279F.
Both sides of lid turned purple, thermometer on lid turned white, ignitor died on first day.

IIRC, "Support" asked I disassemble the unit and take pictures. Whatever

Sounds familiar. after a 1 year of back and forth emails the unit met the recycler.
10 year warranty my arse

Napoleon has a version w/out the cart. I remember coming across it years ago at home depot, and it was on clearance for $130. I regret not snagging it.

Anyone successfully add a rotisserie ring to their napoleon kettle? Seems impossible to find one that fits. The napoleon is 22.5", so it's on the larger side, and the hinged lid design makes it a pain to add the rotisserie ring.

Never with the napoleon, but i was looking for a cheaper rotisserie for a weber kettle and found this:

https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B01H19 ... _415914110

Works like a charm, and in theory should fit any 22.5".

Use it maybe 5-10 times a year, and hasn't let me down yet, highly recommend instead of paying for branded prices.

The problem with the hinged lid design is that you wouldn't be able to close the lid if an extra ring was added.

Ahh yes.. That makes sense.. Need something more like a 22.5 joteisserie... Foil the lid? Search kijiji for old 22.5" models just for a lid ? Meh, kind of janky solutions....

The hinged lid is on that silver center ring. From some assembly videos, I saw that the ring is held in place by 2 screws which, as far as I can tell, are only there to help stabilize the unit while the lid is open, so the lid won't topple over. Those screws might also assist with the swiveling of the lid assembly.

With the two screws removed, you can pull out the entire center ring (with the lid) and likely place your rotisserie kit under the center ring/lid. You can either try to run your unit without those screws installed, replace them by some "quick release" type fasteners, or unscrew them every time you want to use the rotisserie. Disclaimer: I don't own this unit and have never tried the procedure mentioned here.

That said, I'm on the fence about the lid, too. It looks nice and all, but may be limiting for a rotisserie attachment. It also seems like it would be prone to failure. Or at least more prone to failure than my 13 year old Weber's simple lid hook. The old Weber is 18", though, which is starting to feel a bit small.
