Living in southern California has its advantages. We can head to the beach almost all 365
days a year; we have “bad weather” days that consist of a little bit of rain and possibly winds; mosquitoes, those nasty little flies that bite and constantly buzz around lurking and waiting for their moment of attack, are a thing of the past; and every evening can be an “outdoor” event, which makes grilling, or barbecuing as eastern Canadians more often refer to it as, a necessity.
Grilling has always appeared to me as a manly activity and I never put much thought into cooking on the grill. Darren would happily attend to the grill regularly while we were living in New Brunswick and it never crossed my mind to participate, other than passing him the huge barbecue utensils and eating the food that he prepared. Then, one evening a few months ago, we stayed at a resort in Laguna Beach and they had a grill on the patio. As a new experience for my husband and I, I suggested that we grill together. I’m not sure what possessed me to mess with the perfect situation where he would do any grilling and I would hang out in the house waiting for my dinner, but the process of it all, that seemed to excite most men, intrigued me. The Napoleon Prestige P308RB Grill offered a cooking experience as gratifying as the wonderful meal we created, and that was it; I had to own my own Napoleon Grill!
But what made the Napoleon grill so perfect? What was it that made my steak so juicy, tender, and evenly cooked? What happened to the potatoes to make them crispy on the outside yet maintain their soft, fluffy texture on the inside? And why didn’t I notice that cooking on a grill was so simple when it came time to clean up? And more importantly, why didn’t I see the mastery in cooking a meal over flames and steel? Superior technology, rock solid performance, balanced design, and unparalleled customer service are the hallmark of the Napoleon name and the key features that drew me to grilling.
The Napoleon Prestige P308RB Grill Features
The body is all stainless steel; the shelves, the doors, the knobs, the lid, and the handle. The lid is double lined to keep more heat in the grill and to protect the stainless steel on the outside from discoloring. The EASY SET ergonomic knobs connect to precision brass valves and the reliable electronic ignition starts the grill quickly. The LIFT EASE roll top lid features a stainless steel temperature gauge with ACCU-PROBE, which accurately reads the temperature inside the grill while the stainless steel tubular handle remains cool to the touch.
There isn’t anything you can’t cook on this grill. Direct cooking allows you to sear (broil) your food to lock in flavor while the indirect method creates an oven style (roasting) environment. There is a stainless steel rear infrared burner and a rotisserie kit with counter balance and two forks for delicious restaurant style cooking. The tightly sealed lid provides maximum heat retention and oven-like performance and the reversible channel cooking grids hold drippings to keep food moist. The unique patented 304 stainless steel sear plates safely control flareups and eliminate cold spots. The stainless steel burners offer 42,000 BTUs and are positioned front to back for precise heat control allowing for independent use of each grilling zone.
The full width removable drip pan channels excess drippings into a removable grease cup for easy clean up.
The Napoleon Prestige Gourmet Grill is the ideal complement to our outdoor living space. It’s constructed by hard working hands in Canada and backed by Napoleon’s limited lifetime warranty. Grilling feels like a gratifying accomplishment unmatched by cooking in the house. Preparing meals indoors makes me feel like a domestic housewife; cooking meals on the Napoleon grill makes me feel like a master chef in control of my domain. No wonder men don’t complain about using the grill!
