Is the Napoleon Rogue 365 Gas Barbecue easy to assemble?

The Napoleon arrived in a medium sized box but it was too heavy to move on its own and needed a sack trolley to get it to the right spot.
The instructions were clear and easy to understand, with only a couple of tricky-to-follow diagrams and the build went smoothly, taking just over an hour and a half. No extra tools were needed but the provided screwdriver wasn’t really up to the task in hand.

What is the Napoleon Rogue 365 Gas Barbecue like to use?

A hose and regulator is included and connected easily and the barbecue was ready to cook in moments, taking about 5 minutes to come to temperature. The grill’s at a good height and is a generous size with a decent burger count, although the warming shelf rack is a little small. The temperature gauge on the lid is clear and accurate and the grill held its heat well and distribution was good. The drip tray is large and disposable which makes for easy cleaning but is not very environmentally friendly. The side tables fold down easily so it doesn’t take up too much room in the shed or on the patio.

How does the Napoleon Rogue 365 Gas Barbecue cook?

This barbecue heated up fast, cooked food efficiently and evenly – the distance between the burners and the grill produced impressively even results and it held its heat well, making it perfect for slow cooking. Food did stick to the wavy grill though so delicate food such as fish may not fare well.

Is the Napoleon Rogue 365 Gas Barbecue good value for money?

This is a well-designed barbecue made from high quality materials with lots of extras including side tables and a storage shelf. The consistent cooking and sturdy, impressive appearance plus the 15 year warranty makes this good value for money.

Who is the Napoleon Rogue 365 Gas Barbecue useful for?

Ideal for anyone who takes their barbecuing seriously and loves entertaining- the super-fast preheating and brilliant temperature retention makes it great for cooking for a crowd.
