Another Cast Iron Grate option....
« on: June 28, 2016, 04:27:40 PM »
I've been flirting with buying the Napoleon grate for the past few summers and finally pulled the trigger.  I ordered it from Bed, Bath and Beyond thinking I could use the 20% off coupon, but Napoleon doesn't discount so I paid full price of $70.  Shopperschoice.com has it for the same price and they will prob ship a lot faster.  Will break it in this weekend and report back....

That is a sharp looking grill. I like the larger hinged areas.

Looks like outer pieces are modular and you have the two handles in the middle to lift out the entire grate. I like the sway of the bars. Very cool. Please update. Not that it matters, but, pre seasoned??

Yes, it is pre-seasoned and the hinged areas lift out completely if needed as well.

Wow.  This is a really cool grate.  The hinged area is much larger than other options, making it way easier to add coals durring cooks.  Not to mention the handle location being out of the way for refueling as well.

This fits  on your Weber 22.5, right?
I will get one if it does.

Nice looking grate.

Just read the fine print of my BB&B coupon.

"Napoleon Grills" are excluded      :P

Dude, relax your chicken.

Don't want to say I was exactly skeptical, but I didn't necessarily see all the hoopla over cast iron grates....but I must say that I am now a convert.

This thing ROCKS!

A few pics of my 12 oz. burgers; my intention was to make 8 oz. burgers, but I figured I'd lose 2 oz. in fat and water and it just kinda mushroomed from there....

The "space" in the grill marks is due to the dimple  that I always put in the burgers....and they weren't even on the hot side!
