💡 Editorial Tip
Napoleon offers more lighting which is favorable for night BBQ grilling; an interior lighting and knob lighting. Weber offers handle lights and knob lights.
Weber has one sear station while Napoleon has two, one on each shelf. Both of the brands have a smoking option available.
The main difference between these two top barbecue grilling brands is the overall power they can handle and the fact Weber has a traditional side burner.
Napoleon accessory burners are more powerful than Weber as they offer only infrared on the side burners while Weber doesn’t. Controlling temperature on infrared isn’t a piece of cake, so Napoleon has a big challenge to face!
Lastly but not least, the most crucial point is the price. There’s a huge price difference between the two products. So think wisely before purchasing them. Is it really worth spending the extra amount of money on Napoleon just for some extra power?
