    Initial Burn In

    To all of you seasoned Napoleon owners I would love any feedback. I am about to do my initial burn to get the grill ready for cooking. Any suggestions other than the standard info from the manual? Best practices, length, which burners need it, etc. With the money spent on this, I want to ensure I do it as right possible to set up for all the future successes!

            After following the manufacturer’s instructions you might want to find out where the hotspots and cool-spots are. A quick toast test will help. Lay out white bread slices across the grates, set all the burners to the same setting and toast the slices. Hotspots will be darker toast while lighter toast means, of course, cooler areas. It will help you find those areas where you might need to rotate the food in and out while cooking.

              Mr. Bones I like white bread. I think it is because the little Sunbeam girl was probably my first crush as a small boy.🙂
