They did replace the regulator, but I still couldn't get the heat down. I followed all the instructions for adjusting air and fuel, but couldn't get what I want.
We'll see how the Napoleon goes. I've had success with a couple roast chickens.
My brother-in-law sells BBQs, hot tubs, fire places and he has a Napoleon. He hates the ignition system on his ( full size ). So, we shall see.

Steveston Marine has the Dickinson ( NEW DESIGN ) on for $369.

The description is entertaining if nothing else.

This Napoleon has two burners, doesn't it? There are a few circumstances that might be handy. I know it is on a large surface for sure.

I have a big ass Napoleon at home, which is now 18 years old. For the most part it is in great shape, but I do have to rebuild the igniter, and replace the burners.

I am off to buy a new one piece stone for ours. Just a few bucks at the tile store for an 18x18 honed travertine tile, and will cut it to size. I don't like carrying the weight, but it sure does make baking easy.

Yeah, new 8 years ago, and priced higher than most other resellers.

Yup. My 'portable' Napoleon has two burners. I do a lot of indirect grilling. Ribs, chicken etc. I like being able to keep stuff warm on the side that isn't lit while grilling on the other side.
Asparagus doesn't fall through the grill either.

Actually, I think it may have some new design elements. Don't know what they are though. I got mine on sale at Steveston for $280 when it was $430 at the factory. Factory told me to get it at Steveston.

I have been folling this thread with a lot of interest. Im bringing two BBQ's. One a Camp Chef single burner with their grill box and a Char Broil X200 ...... yeah yeah I know Char Broil doesn't have the best reputation .... but I have one at home. Although originally I bought it to use with my trailer, I discovered how much I liked it .... even BBQ ing all winter. The Camp Chef I haven't used yet. I'm searching for the 'perfect outside cooker'.

I'll be interested in Glenn's 2 burner Napolean ...... I think I' d like the indirect heat. And Jim's Spitfire. Have always liked Dickenson products. Would like to see both.

I do like to eat ...... after I get last nights Opossum burned off the grill, I be ready to show you my grills. Looking for a learning experience.

Does anyone know if the Spitfire will fit in the 5.0TA outside front storage under bed?

After discussing with Reace, I know Alf fit his in with a slight inside flange trimming for the feet. I will be looking at doing the same thing. Maybe they could make it an inch taller?

Yes, Alf cut a notch in the inside flange to slide it in, so it will fit.
