The Bottom Line
This is a powerful grill that delivers up to 48,000 BTUs under its 500 square inch primary cooking area. This gives you the ability to sear and grill at high temperatures. The ability to lower the output to just 6,000 BTUs gives you a lot of versatility with this grill. The high quality of the internal components means it will last and perform for a long time. This grill comes with a 12,500 BTU infrared side burner and 19,000 BTU rear mounted infrared rotisserie burner and full rotisserie kit.

Guide Review - Napoleon Prestige P500RSIB
This Napoleon Gas Grill is the same as the Prestige P500 but with all the extras. While that version sells for less, what the extra cost of this version adds are stainless steel cooking grates, a full rotisserie system with 18,000 BTU rear mounted rotisserie burner and a 14,000 BTU infrared searing side burner.
At the heart of any good gas grill is the cooking system. Everything else is just cosmetics. Unfortunately, many grill makers put more flash and substance in their grills. Napoleon, like a small handful of companies, makes a good grill. The high-quality stainless steel burners produce a high, even temperature while the heavy stainless steel rod cooking grates in the wave pattern give excellent heat contact.
This gas grill has high-quality construction, high and even heating, and a large body of accessories as well as very good support.
