I'm still on th fence about this but the opportunity may pass me by...might just hold out for a Weber sale as I still have a gas grill for now.

Deal looks decent tho. Thanks for sharing OP.

Good luck with that Weber sale. I’ve been watching the charcoal grills for a while, no discounts of any kind…not even $10, not even on Black Friday. Now, I could just be very bad at finding them on sale, nut I have yet to see one go on sale.

Great deal OP.
I was wondering why Weber wouldn't use cast iron in its kettles. After grilling on Weber charcoal for years, I feel cast iron may not be necessary for charcoal but would like to hear your opinion.

This Acorn was the best purchase I ever made… under $300 about 7 years ago I bought it and still use regularly. Key is not to lose air and good lump charcoal…

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.
The lid side handle would be hard to use if the hinge was removed. You also won't have anywhere to put the lid when it's off.

Thanks OP, ordered one last night!

I have been looking into the cover and it appears to include THIS one, worth $75. Other retailers sell the cover separately. That is an awesome bonus!

Promote good brands. They are not giving you free because you are Canadian. So it works both ways. I assume you always buy from Canadian Tire.

Was on the fence but decided to jump in. Needed a charcoal grill to fill out my trifecta of Gas+Smoker+Charcoal.

This napoleon bbq is huge and charcoal seems to be very expensive in Canada, how much charcoal do you need? If cooking for 2 people is this too big?

This is pretty big for two people. You can look into charcoal baskets or a charcoal crown, to use less charcoal. Check out the weber baskets, they're cheaper than napoleon but should fit just fine.

This is what I have now and thinking about upgrading to the cart as it has the shelf and hinged lid and could use the extra space

Anybody already have this grill and comment on the quality? Reviews seem to be mixed about rust and tiny screws. I was also looking at the komoda jr as somebody that wants to get into charcoal but something that won't fall apart in a couple of years.

good deal for the Napoleon kettle, especially with the cart/table.

some stuff for consideration....
  • charcoal kettles are easy to handle and clean. lots of simple cooking techniques that can make extremely delicious meals.
  • kamado ceramic style cookers are my favourite. it does basically everything a charcoal kettle can do, but with tremendously better temperature insulation and amazing charcoal fuel efficiency in our cold canadian winters. scored a vision kamado on RFD many moons ago -- time machine stuff. glad i pulled the trigger, it made bbq my hobby! kamado costs more though, so that's not always an easy purchase. there's another RFD post on Kamado Joe 18".... $1000 though
  • i got a pellet smoker as recommended by RFD as well. lots of electronics and mechanisms subject to failure though. it's still good but with surprisingly more maintenance and cleaning effort than expected.
Let's get rich together on RFD. Stay positive, stay frugal. 😃

I didn't mean removing the hinge. I meant removing the the entire center ring. The hinge would stay intact.

The hinge is attached to the stainless center ring. If you remove the ring, you still need to remove the hinge to get the lid back on?
