Very good control, well built
I have been very happy with this grill; it is quite large so there is plenty of space for both direct and indirect heat. To the complaints from others about the grill running hot, I find it very easy to manage by using only the center section for charcoal. You can then control the heat on the rest of the grill easily with a combination of changing the level of the coals and moving food further from or closer to the center. Coals can easily be added from the top by removing the smaller center grill section. I agree that this is not a good product for smoking, but if you are serious about smoking I think a separate dedicated smoker is a much better option than trying to use the same product for two very different purposes. Overall I'm very happy with the grill; it's well built, easy to control, and very spacious.

Best charcoal rotisserie
I love this BBQ. Huge cooking area, well built, adjustable coal bed, worth the money. I did a 30lb pig on the rotisserie no problem. I usually do two chickens at a time, but could easily do 3.

Huge cooking surface
Well the price seemed high I have only used charcoal my whole grilling life I had one of your kettle grills sadly the bottom rotted out. This grill surpasses my expectations so far I've already grilled about 5 times even though our weather hasn't been ideal I'm looking forward to many years of grilling with this beast.

Great quality but not for beginners or slow cooks
+ Great quality grill. I purchased this due to its size / ability to do large cooks. So far have done about 10 various cooks on this. - Hard to control temperature / airflow with no top vent(s)...slow cooks close to impossible. 3 charcoal trays does not allow for snake method charcoal layout - No test cook videos / tips on using this beast whether by Napoleon or youtubers. I cannot make sense of this and it is particularly disappointing but probably an indication of how many Charcoal Pro units Napoleon sells per year. - Access door to top up charcoal way too small. - Napoleon grill cover cannot handle extreme (Dubai) heat. + Overall happy with this grill for fast cooks, but unfortunately will definitely need to by a smoker and/or a smaller charcoal grill where I can control temps.

Half a Pro grill
TLDR version: Great for direct grilling, and short duration indirect grilling. Bad for long duration indirect grilling. Good quality materials that look like they will last for many years. The Good: Excellent bottom half of the grill. The coal trays and adjustment rack work great. The design of the mechanism to raise and lower the rack allows for over 90% of the cooking area to be covered by the coal rack, whereas those crank handle types are more like 65% of the cooking area. Creates a much more even cook over the whole area. Been working fine for almost a year now, so hope it maintains it's durability. Cooking racks are great, provide good sear marks, had no problem with food sticking, and don't seem to rust like cast iron racks. Ash tray seems to be of a durable material, and no sign of corrosion yet. The Mediocre: The door in the front to add coals is pretty useless as it's too small. The only time I typically would add coals is for long term indirect cooking (more below) and the door only really allows access to the center coal rack. The ash tray could be a bit deeper so you are not cleaning it out so often, and no reason from the design that is couldn't be a bit deeper. The bad: Complete inability to manage the cooking temperature because of the lid! After what looks like a thoughtful design on the charcoal rack, they just put what looks like a typical gas grill lid on a charcoal grill. This lid lets so much air into the cooking chamber you have no ability to control the cooking temp by managing the air flow, which is critical for cooking with charcoal over a longer period. If this grill had a tight fitting solid lid, with adjustable air vents then it would get 5 stars. Even if you are looking to roast a whole chicken you either start off with it too hot to begin and let the temp come down as the coals burn down, or you're trying to add small amounts of fuel during the process which creates a hot/cool/hot/cool/hot cycle during the cook instead of a nice even temp for the whole duration. I wouldn't even think about attempting the Thanksgiving turkey on this. Huge disappointment for this price.

No heat control, not for slow cooking, needs constant attent
I bought this 6 months ago as it seemed perfect for cooking long skewers of chicken, beef, etc. which I do about once a month. The cooking surface is huge and much better suited for long metal skewers vs round charcoal BBQs. Kabobs aside, I use this about 3 times a week. If you are cooking something quick, it works well, provided you time things right. The temperature slide (to increase/decrease air flow) does absolutely nothing - there is just too much other air flow into the coal bed, meaning this thing runs hot! You need to control the temperature by limiting/arranging the charcoal, and constantly watching it. This is quite difficult through the little door - I need to leave one of the grates off and place charcoal from the top. And add to much charcoal, this thing can shoot past 700 degrees in no time and you will have to wait out the inferno. Raising/lower the coal bed helps control temp/sear, but always lower it before opening the lid as the slightest breeze will blow ash all over the food. This thing sounded totally amazing as advertised, but in reality just does not deliver.

No heat control
I bought this last year thinking I was getting a professional BBQ. I am not a professional cook but I have bbq'ed a fair bit. Thought I was moving up from a kettle to a great bbq. I was wrong. The bbq is impossible to control the heat other than small amounts of charcoal and having to tend it constantly. I was hoping to slow cook and I can't. When I went to the store they tried to help but the only suggestion was to use less charcoal. It seems to me that this is a propane bbq converted to burn charcoal. The only thing is the quality of the bbq(it's stainless) it should last. I am so disappointed because I felt the price I paid would ensure a great bbq. Now I am stuck with it.

Question:
Why are the grates wavy? Like going up and down? Seems like the food would roll from the high spot to the low spot. Or is the picture deceiving and the grates flat but wave from side to side?
Was This Helpful?
Answer:
Hi Scott. The waves go side to side, this helps keep smaller items from falling through the grates and leave great looking sear marks on your food.

Question:
The cooking grid doesn't appear to be flat. I'm not sure how I'd like that. Is there an advantage or an option to get a flat grid?
Was This Helpful?
Answer:
Hi Scott, The Napoleon PRO605CSS Professional Charcoal Grill does not have adjustable cooking grids, however many grills have their cooking grids on a frontward sloping gradient due to grills typically being hotter towards the back because of air flow within the grill.

When Will My Item Arrive?

Once shipped, items usually arrive within 3–5 business days. If your item or order is large, it may ship via one of our third-party freight carriers, which deliver from semi trucks with lift gates. Freight delivery is much more complicated than standard parcel shipping — you must schedule a drop-off time, be present for the delivery, and move items from the curb to your residence, among other differences. Sound stressful? If you prepare in advance with our guide to freight delivery, it doesn’t have to be.

We strongly encourage reading the entire freight delivery guide, but here’s a quick snapshot of what you need to be ready for when you order a large package:

  • Your freight carrier will call you to schedule a delivery window of about 4–8 hours
  • You’re required to be physically present at the specified delivery location during the scheduled window
  • Freight shipments are carried in semi trucks, which have lift gates to assist with unloading
  • Freight deliveries are dropped off at the curb and no further — not up the driveway, not the porch, not the garage, and most definitely not the backyard — so it’s on you to transport packages to their intended location
  • For an easier time hauling items to your home or backyard, arrange for at least 2 helpers to be on standby during your delivery window
  • You must sign for the shipment to indicate that you’ve accepted the delivery

Again, we recommend reading our entire breakdown of freight delivery so you can become familiar with the process. Trust us when we say that getting caught off guard with the strict requirements of freight delivery can lead to a whole lot of headaches.

No Restocking Fee

Most companies charge a restocking fee. We just don't do business that way.

Message to our customers: Like all retailers and manufacturers, we’re currently experiencing well-publicized supply-chain issues and steel shortages that have caused some orders to be delayed. We sincerely apologize for any inconveniences arising from this situation, and we assure you we’re making every effort to solve these problems with our vendors and logistical partners.

So, why are some orders being affected? Major ports around the world are still operating at reduced capacity because of COVID-19 restrictions — on average, container boats sit at port for about 3 weeks before being unloaded. Combine these shipping inefficiencies with a scarcity of natural resources, and virtually every industry has been crippled to some degree. Yet we acknowledge that it’s our duty to meet these challenges head-on and work toward solutions so you can enjoy more time outdoors with the people you love. We appreciate your patience as we strive to smooth out our supply chain, and we thank you for choosing us for your grilling and outdoor living needs.
