It all started in a small garage just outside Barrie, Ontario, Canada, where Wolfgang Schroeter, trained in a German technical engineering school, built three wood stoves his first year while his wife and partner, Ingrid, would bring home the metal needed on the roof of her car. At that time, no one could imagine the incredible future that lay ahead for Wolf Steel Ltd. and eventually Napoleon® Fireplaces and Napoleon® Gourmet Grills.
By 1981, the name “Napoleon®” was born. Over the years, the demand for Napoleon® products grew beyond Ontario’s borders to the rest of Canada and eventually into the United States, United Kingdom, Europe and Asia

Using charcoal is the traditional form of infrared grilling that we're all familiar with: glowing briquettes emit direct heat through infrared energy into the food being grilled, giving that mouth-watering smoky aroma and delicious crust.
With the SIZZLE ZONE infrared burners from Napoleon®, you get these benefits plus convenient gas technology: each burner contains thousands of gas outlets that heat the ceramic surface until it starts to glow red. The resulting infrared rays don't just warm the ambient air; the heat penetrates directly and deeply into the food. It also creates a consistent thermal area that, compared with a charcoal fire, is much easier to control.
Napoleon® infrared burners produce extremely high temperatures, making them ideal for the preparation of juicy steaks, burgers and other meats. The SIZZLE ZONE can also be used as a side burner, and combined with a ceramic heat plate provides the perfect way to prepare delicious stir fries in a wok.
The dual-level sear plates allow for consistent circulation of heat to the cooking grids, preventing the occurrence of "hotspots".
It's not just the staggered height of the plates that makes them effective; it's also their rising position from back to front, which allows naturally hotter air at the back to move to the front where it's cooler.
What's more, the self-cleaning plates reduce gas flame flare-ups because
they channel any dripping fat or juices away from the flames, making barbecuing safer and giving your food a better, more intense flavour.
Igniting a Napoleon® gas burner is made easy by Napoleon‘s unique innovative JETFIRETM ignition system which ignites each individual burner with a strong burst of flame from a separate gas outlet. This allows for the burners to ignite even in extreme weather – the dreaded click of a failed Piezo ignition is a thing of the past.
This innovative technology is only used in this way in Napoleon® BBQs.
The unique shape of the WAVE cooking grids gives food an attractive sear pattern that can only be found with
a Napoleon® BBQ. But the wave shape doesn't just give your food an appetising appearance, it also has practical benefits: the wavy cooking grid promotes more evenly distributed heat and also makes it much harder for small bits of food to fall through. Once again, it is the small details that make a Napoleon® BBQ a Napoleon® BBQ.
Both the JETFIRE ignition system and the WAVE cooking grids come as standard with all our gas BBQs. The dual-level sear plates are also standard with all gas BBQs except the Triumph®, LE/LEX and TravelQ series.
