    Eyeing a Napoleon prestige pro, but do I really need gas?

    As the title says, I’m considering buying a Napoleon gasser. Now, I also own a black stone griddle. My other fuel types are an electric masterbuilt smoker, a traeger junior that unfortunately either needs repairs or upgrades, and in the future I am planning to have a stick burner built.

    i love the idea of the rotisserie that the Napoleon has. Two big chickens at a time baby! But I need to view this decision without the rose colored glasses. Do I really need a gasser? What would be my benefit to having this thing over simply having my griddle, the stick burner, and a pellet griddle.

    i could have a bit of addiction to buying cooking things I don’t need, there’s that too! 😆

    Look at it as another arrow in your quiver not another cooker

      I love my Weber Gasser loaded with upside down GrillGrates. It's bigger than what I need personally, but so is my pellet smoker. I cook for others and I grilled a nice batch or 2 or 3 of burgers to feed about 30-40 on the gasser.

          It’s called MCS. More Cooker Syndrome. Never goes away, can’t be beaten. Just buy it. You will fins ways to move it into your cooker rotation.

            I didn’t think I needed a gasser when mine bit the dust. But it does have its place, and my wife uses it so I just bought a new Weber S-345. What’s funny is I just grilled some steaks tonight on my kettle....Ha

              I only fear that aside from rotisserie, I would prefer the flavor of the others for everything. for burgers the blackstone makes some good groceries!

                I have a Napolean gas grill, a Primo XL and a Traeger Pellet smoker and I use all three. I cooked bacon and sausages this morning on the gas grill. I like the side burner too. The natural gas grill is good for quick cooks.

                  Whether or not you get gas, depends on what you eat.

                      I rehomed my gas grill when I got my Blackstone griddle. I was never really a fan, but I honestly miss it for quick weeknight grilling jobs when I don't want to mess with charcoal. I would go ahead and get that if you're on the fence.

                          Yup! I have pit-barrel, wok oven, Lodge sportsman, Weber 22 & a Napoleon gasser. My cooks are dominated by the Weber & Napoleon. The roto on the Nappy is great as is the IR side burner. You can get a tube for chips from N or use a pouch. I use both. Roto is bomb.

                            The rotisserie is the primary factor of my desire to get the Napoleon. There is something about rotisserie.

                          As with others here, I have charcoal, a griddle, and a gasser. In my case it’s a 6-burner Weber Summit Platinum that I’ve have for 15 years. If I ever get rid of it, I would have a SERIOUS look at a Napoleon Prestige Pro.

                          I LOVE the rotisserie. That alone is almost worth the price of admission for me. I also really like it for short fast cooks...especially if I’m pressed for time or don’t feel like fussing about. Mine can get raging hot in minutes...far faster than I could ever get a chimney lit. It just another tool at my disposal. Before I got “serious” about smoking and the rest, it was my only grill...for years.

                          OTOH, you do realize that you’re asking a bunch of MCS addicts if you should get another grill?!
                          OF COURSE WE’RE GONNA SAY YES! LOL

                            Charcoal is king but I would never want to go without a good gas grill.
