    Another Apollo Owner

    Doesn't seem like there are allot of Apollo owners out there as I rarely see them discussed. I think I found one guy on Utube.
    I've had mine a dozen yrs and have made enough mods to get it to perform to my liking. I'm actually shopping for a new cooker now but will keep using the Apollo as a backup

    If I can help you spend your money, then check out TraegerGrills.com. The start of the pellet grill revolution.
    Happy Grilling to you.


      Are we talking the Apollo bullet style smoker by Napoleon, which is a knock off of the Weber Smokey Mountain bullet style smoker, or are we talking about something entirely different that I don't know about? I.e. charcoal in the bottom, water pan, and two cooking grates up top?

        We're definitely talking the same cooker although ive always thought of it as either a copy or rebranding of the British ProQ smoker. Ive had it 10 or 11 years now and have reengineered it to meet my needs. I just added a SNS kettle to my arsenal so time will tell how I continue to use it.
        I'm finding the SNS to be superior under all conditions except capacity

        ProspectSmoker I use a rib rack to fit up to 5 racks of ribs on a kettle with the SNS. A rib rack and an elevated grate go a long way to extending your capacity. You do have to rotate things halfway through the cook if you do that though, as it is hotter higher up in the dome.

        Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

        The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

        The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

        Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
