Infrared rotisserie burner

These gas grills come equipped with a stainless steel rear infrared rotisserie burner capable of generating between 18,000 BTUs on the PRO500 models and 26,500 BTUs on the PRO600 models. With this amount of power, this burner is one of the most powerful of this type on any gas grill available. The infrared technology enables the burner to cook meat evenly and retain heat, so the rotisserie burners are great for cooking slow-cooking meats and preparing unique dishes.

Further more, the PRO500RSIB and PRO600RSIB models come equipped with side burners capable of 12,500 BTUs or 14,000 BTUs, great for side dishes or more cooking in the same time.

All the Napoleon Prestige Pro gas grills feature an electronic ignition system – the Jetfire ignition system – which lights the burners by igniting a jet of gas. Electronic ignitions are very efficient at getting a flame going, but they also require a battery, which needs to be replaced occasionally.
