New Non Weber Smoker Find
« on: December 02, 2022, 11:16:30 AM »
Found this today at a local pool shop.  They have Green Eggs and Pellet grills as well as outdoor furniture.  Seems this Napoleon Smoker has been in their showroom for years with no interest so they put a super slash price on it that I couldn't resist.  Who knows if I'll ever use it, but it is a pretty neat conversation piece.  Came with a cover, instruction booklet and hooks that attach to the inside of the lid - also two stackers and can be used as a grill.  It's not near the quality of any Weber product I own or know of but I kinda like it.

Looks pretty versatile and a super slash price is always good. What diameter is it?

Thanks, itís the larger of the two that Napoleon made at 19 inches.  Just got it home to compare to an 18Ē kettle grate (donít have an 18Ē WSM).  Grates in this one are odd sized 18.5Ē so if I use it Iíll have to really take care of them.

I remember when the Pro Q was a thing with the TVWBB crowd- not sure if Napoleon rebranded them but I know of a few Canadian teams used them
Not Weber but good quality

I have one like that but mine is called a Fornetto Basso. I bought it at Lowes several years ago for $179 and recently retired it when I got an 18" Weber Smokey Mountain on clearance at Lowes for $165. Here's their website: https://fornetto.com/. It's a good cooker, very versatile and easy to get to the meats on the lower rack by unlatching and lifting off the top half.
a blue MT, a yellow 70th, a red 1990, 3 SJ's, 2 CGAs, a Gen II, a Q and a WSM

So interestingÖ.. the manual on this one says itís made in Canada.  Iíve never seen these in stores here and figured I couldnít lose for $40.  Heck, the lid thermometer is probably worth that lol.

Were these a big seller in Canada?  I donít find much info on them onlineÖ.. may not use, might flip it - especially since I asked for a rib hanger and hunsaker charcoal basket for the 22Ē WSM for Christmas.

No they didnít do so hot up here, at least on the west coast. They were discontinued a year or two ago and I was told we canít get replacement parts for them anymore which is odd as most Napoleon products have legacy parts for quite some time.

Havenít had the chance to use one myself but I like the idea being able to setup in different configurations/sizes.
